Trying to be Friends Again

Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Female
How do i tell someone that has rejected and stopped talking to me that i just want to be friends again. Advice
If they stopped talking to you it sounds like they aren't very secure in their emotions. They've rejected you (as someone to date, I assume) and now feel uncomfortable about it and their easy solution is to just avoid you. Sure that's an EASY solution, but is life really so full of good friends that you can afford to just discard them whenever you want to because it's easy?

I would just take it slow. Smile at them when you see them. Say hi. Ask how things are going. Don't be pressure-full, don't get into epic conversations. Just show them that you are still around, are still friendly and are a nice person. If they are reasonable they will start to talk back to you. If they are unreasonable and refuse to even smile back or say hi, even despite your best efforts, they really aren't worth it.
