So I stumbled across my exes profile on this online friend-making site. It's not a dating site, per se, just a place to meet people. Anyway, we had a huge (I mean nuclear) falling out over a year ago when we broke up and haven't talked since. She was my first love but we were friends first. I was thinking about sending her a message just saying Hi and seeing how things were going. Something that sounded like this:
Not quite sure how I stumbled onto your profile on here seeing as I rarely use this. (bad)Luck? A cruel twist of fate? Anyway, it's been awhile and I just wanted to say "Hi" and see how things were going.
I'd rather not bring up the past because it was just such a FUBAR situation at the time and, for what it's worth, I'm sorry for the part I played in it, but I'm totally over it now. I'm not sure how you feel about reading this, I can't imagine you're too thrilled, but I really just wanted to try and extend the olive branch and see how an old friend was doing.
Hope to hear from you,

Your message is sweet but you should change one sentence.
"'d rather not bring up the past because it was just such a FUBAR situation at the time and, for what it's worth, I'm sorry for the part I played in it, but I'm totally over it now. "
First you don't want to bring up the past, yet you still talk about it...then you apologized with a sentence containing "but"...so it is not a real apology but an excuse.
So work on the first part of the sentence and delete the last part of it: "but I'm totally over it now.".
The rest is good!
