Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes reconnecting with someone you used to have a connection with in the past can spark a new love. Here are some ways to approach it:

1. Social media: In this day of technology, social media may be the best way to go about reconnecting with a past crush. Log on to Facebook or Twitter and compose a quick flirtatious message meant to spark new conversation.

2. Mutual friends: Chances are that you may have mutual friends to lean on. If you want to reconnect with someone, ask your mutual friend to plan a group activity. This will give you a no-pressure way to see each other again.

3. Text: If you still have your ex or past crush’s number, texting may be the way to go. It’s not quite as in-your-face as a phone call, and you can easily keep things simple. A quick, “How’s it going?” may be just what you need.
