Out of all joys in life reconnecting with a old friend, lover or family member has to be of the greatest.The question is after you reconnect with them, how do you make plans with someone you haven't seen or talked to in a very long time? I researched a little and the answer is, find common ground. Talk about basic stuff like fashion, t.v. shows, future plans etc. These things will help build up conversation. Eventually you will find out that you guys may have more in common than you thought. Don't ever be discouraged by the idea of starting over, sometimes rebuilding relationships can be in your best interest.
