Consider the following scenario. Your best friend hasnâ€™t returned emails in weeks other than some variation of, â€œSuper busy — get back to you soon.â€
A) Fire off an email letting her know how offended you are at her neglect, being careful to recall the times when you were there for her.
B) Back off and just wait it out until she decides to get back to you. Try not to get too steamed if itâ€™s a long wait.
C) Have fun picking out a humorous â€œI miss youâ€ card. Send it with a note saying, â€œWould love to catch up with you when youâ€™re up for it. If thereâ€™s anything you need, Iâ€™m always here.â€ Alternatively, if she lives nearby, drop off a batch of homemade baked goods. Maybe she feels guilty over her neglect and is now too embarrassed to re-establish contact. A kind gesture will go further than recriminations.
