What was your childhood/tween years like? Did you grow up playing sports, dancing, or as a member of a recreational club? If you did then you’re probably like me and you probably met your bestie or two through a shared after-school activity.
Even though you didn’t go to school with them, you saw them multiple times a week at practices, games, performances, etc. They were awesome ladies who you would spill all your little secrets and talk about your issues at school. They were basically your rock but somewhere along the way you started to drift apart… not because you were a bad friend or they were, it was simply because we all have to grow up at some point.
So how do you reconnect with them and build that relationship again?
There’s only one way to do so… REACH OUT TO THEM! We all know this can be scary because you don’t know what the long lost vina is thinking or if she will even respond, but chances are your text will actually make her heart a little warm and she will 100% respond!
Don’t worry about the months or years that have gone by, and definitely don’t be intimidated by her awesome lifestyle you see on her Instagram feed. After all you probably stalk her profile every time they post a new pic and I know you want to know how her life without you is so find out for yourself.
First, grab your phone find their number or DM them! What do you say? Well, start with a compliment (because who doesn’t love a compliment!) then go on to talk about how long its been and in conclusion, express to them how much you would love to get coffee or a quick bite to eat (sounds a little bit like dating but in a way it kinda is)!
Next is actually getting to the coffee/food date. Like most plans you make in advance, you begin to question… how can I get out of this, what excuse can I make, or what if it’s weird? The answer is you can’t and it’s only weird if you make it weird. So get your butt off the couch, turn off your fav Netflix show, and head out the door!
Remember, at one time you two were BFFS that ruled the world and now with all the passed years, you have much to catch up on, so be excited! And hey if it’s not awkward (which it won’t be) and the past years didn’t deteriorate your friendship then you got your vina back!
