Here's the problem with dating apps: It can be seriously tough to keep track of all your conversations. When you're juggling a dozen different convos with different matches, a promising one can slip through the cracks, and if too much time passes, messaging them again just feels awkward. Resurrecting an old convo is hard, but coming up with messages to send to an old dating app match is even harder. How exactly do you say, "Hiii, remember me?" without totally weirding out that long-lost match?
Maybe you talked about going on a date but never did. Maybe you actually went on a date but never followed up about a second. Maybe the word "date" was never even mentioned, but you two had what felt like a really great rapport before the conversation fizzled out. No matter how much time has passed since you last spoke, there are ways to revive a lost connection, so no need to kiss that potential relationship goodbye just yet. Whether the approach you take is a little self-deprecating or majorly forward, resurrecting an old convo is worth the risk. After all, that match may be hoping to hear from you again just as much as you want to message them.
