Anyone have experiences, stories, or wisdom to share along these lines? I've had a couple of emails from old girlfriends from YEARS before who located me (after some online searching) and suddenly wanted to know all about what I was doing, etc. I ignored the first one and she apparently took the hint and disappeared again. But I don't fancy my chances for the same luck with this other one, so I haven't decided what to do there. Honestly, I'd prefer to be left alone, but there's no polite way to say that. Shouldn't it be evident that if I'd wanted to re-establish communications with these people, I would have done it years ago?
