WHEN SOMEONE FROM 'YOUR PAST' REACHES OUT AFTER A YEAR

or two
  1. That crazy guy sends you a Facebook message asking how you are two years after he told you that his biggest mistake was loving you (you'd dated for 1 month) and that he hopes one day you learn some things ("like, respect, for example")
    Summon all your self-control and don't even open that message. Not even to be snarky.
  2. That kid you befriended sophomore year who ditched you to become a frat star and who you drunkenly made out with your senior year texts you "Hi" a year later and then follows that with "what's up"
    Be kind and make conversation and then regret it later, not because he's horrible, but because he reminds you of a version of yourself that you'd prefer stayed in your past.
  3. Let's let bygones be bygones, darling.
