Are you actually 36 to 45? It doesn't sound like it. Not that that's a bad thing, I was just curious to know if you're actually that age.
I have a guy best friend that I haven't seen since.. well... like late August, so it's been around 4 months since I've seen him, and I'm quite sure he had a thing for me for the past while, and I didn't realize until I stopped seeing him and I didn't realize I had feelings for him until then as well. So what I did was create reasons for him to want to talk to me again, I did interesting things and that got his attention. After months of not seeing me, he's probably gonna see me sometime this week. You should just contact her and see how she's doing if you haven't already. Even if you haven't seen her for 6 months, if she was interested in you, I'm sure she wouldn't mind seeing you again. I'm not sure how close you two are, but if you were already friends then there shouldn't be a problem. It's the holidays after all so this is the perfect time to say "hey! I've been thinking about you! how's it going?! let's catch up" or however you would go about saying all of that.
Best of luck to you buddy, because I'm in the same friggin boat lol :D
