Lovely reunion after a long time apart

Wishing to restore at least a friendship and to remain that way – that’s why an old flame decides to contact you in most cases. Very few are seeking or expecting any kind of romance. Having said that we dont really know as there are some who will not admit their true motives for reconnection. So, in truth, none of us really know the answer here.

On the other hand for some, the reunion is a huge and positive plus for both- romantically. Many of our old flame seekers are elderly and living alone for various reasons.

  • How to contact an old flame?

Lets begin by saying the chances of you reconnecting naturally are very slim. So some intervention is required. One of the most popular approaches are via a third party. Like a go-between or a referee. In the early stages this can generate a more open and frank approach than you yourself might convey. Of course you then have to find such an intermediary whom you can trust.  Obviously a mutual friend is a good option and non-judgemental.

But if it was a few years ago how many people have you actually retained a friendship with. Some are living miles away, others abroad, and in most cases unable to arrange a physical meeting. In conclusion we feel the best solution although far from perfect, is to employ an agency here we respectfully mention ourselves friends reconnected who specialises in reconnecting old friends/old flames. They can maintain a healthy barrier until both parties are ready. Of course there are many other solutions/ptions but we hope we have provided a few pointers. Good Luck.
