Dear Miss Emily:

My ex-best friend and I had been friends since 7th grade, now we're 25.  We haven’t talked in 2 years.  About 5 years ago, I told her I was bi-sexual so she wanted to try it with me.  We did 2 times with a guy – once, just us.  I really think that was the breaking point.  We still kept it on with the friendship thing, but I think after a while it started being a jealousy thing.  I want to be her friend again.  Do you think she feels the same? Should I mend the friendship?

Dear Unsure:

Well, there’s that old saying, “You can’t go home again.”  In other words, life soldiers on, and people can change, in time.  But you seem to have this need to tie up loose ends, and that is why, whether she is receptive or not (and you can’t guess this sort of thing), you should follow through.  But be prepared for rejection.  If you have no problem with that, you have my blessing. Again, do understand that people move on with their lives, and she might not want you to be a part of hers, now.  That’s okay.  Nothing ventured, nothing gained!
