6 years ago I was friends with a great guy. We were around 16-17 and nothing ever happened between us. We had spent a lot of time together during those years and slowly drifted apart until we had completed ceased to talk to/see eachother. 3 weeks ago he followed me on instagram, then a week later he added me on facebook and now I really wanna talk to him, or rather want him to talk to me. I have his number from before and it's still the same so I've been thinking of texting him. Should i do that or will it seem desperate?
Personally, I think that things like "I can't call him because he'll think I'm desperate" are all forms of game-playing and not being sincere about your feelings. However, if you can't bring yourself to call him, wait for him to post something on FB and then reply and include the comment that you would love to hear from him soon.
Hun you won't seem desperate. I have been in this situation many times before, and most of the time he's probably thinking exactly what you are. Talk to him you won't seem desperate he most likely is waiting for you to message him. Besides would you rather sit back and let the days, months go by debating weather you should talk to him. Or you could be spending that time making up for the lost years and reconnecting. I say talk to him Hun good luck.
Definitely hit him up, girl! He already made the first move with instagram and facebook. Those are both safe ways of reaching out to each other without really committing to much. Shoot him a message and see where that leads. Sounds like you're obviously still interested in at least being friends with him.
