Is it ever too late to re-establish a friendship??

I was crusing around the Friends Reunited website the other day, and I discovered the profile of a girl I was friends with in school. We were 'best friends' for about three years...bear with me for my little story... I was friends with Kaz, we were great friends, had so much in common, our families got along, everything was great. Kaz was also friends with Sheena. Sheena and I didn't really get along too well, but most of the time we would pretend or whatever to make things easier for Kaz. The last week of school (this is back in 2000), I walked past Kaz and Sheena. Sheena made a nasty comment about something I was wearing. I was so hurt that Kaz didn't stand up for me. I suspect something else may have happened as well, but that day I was basically abandoned as a friend, and those two became best friends. My sister maintained contact with Kaz over the years. I know its been 7 years, but I just kinda wonder about contacting her, and seeing whats been going on and everything. This year has been a big year for me reconnecting with people from high school, and she is one that I regret not keeping in touch with. Is it even too late to call up an old friend? I guess the worst that can happen is that she can reject me again....

I think it is worth trying at least! You know, she may even apologise for her behaviour or at least offer you some closure on the issue. There is a possibility she may not have been aware how much her actions (or non action) have hurt you. It is never too late to re-connect, no.

I dont think that you should stand back from reuniting from Kaz. And if she refuses to become friends again with you the i feel that she will be the one who is in a loss. Because she is refusing the friendship of a true friend who still remember her after such a long tim period. And take my advice when ever you two talk again dont talk to her about that day, when you felt that you were abandoned, atleast dont start on it for some time. And if she starts on that topic just try to change the topic as soon as you can. It will be the best thing for you guys... Best Of Luck.

It is never too late to rekindle a friendship. I was recently reunited with a friend from elementary school that I had not seen in 20 years. We have become friends again like no time has passed at all. It has been wonderful. Contact your old friend and see where it leads.

If you do treasure her as a friend, there's basically nothing to stop you from contacting her as a friend. Maybe she's gotten over things by now. Sometimes, people make mistakes. She might have been too weak to stand up for you in the past, but you're willing to forgive her now. So that's great. Perhaps she regrets it now but is too embarassed to contact you. Then it'll be good for you to make the first move. I think there's no harm in trying to contact her. Like you said, the worse thing that can happen is that she's reject your offer of frienship. But that's ok, at least you know you've tried. Who knows? It might be the continuation of a beautiful friendship. :) I'd say go for it! :)
