How to know to make the first move

Broke up with an ex three years ago, never got over him at all. We were too young to be in that serious a relationship and it's always felt like we'll meet again when were more mature.
We've loosely kept in touch over time and met up a few times but haven't spoken for the last year or so while he had a gf. We've recently both been through break ups and he sent me a message via my blog site, just about enjoying my blog recently.
We've exchanged a few comments on each other's blogs and he sent me a message saying he was sorry to see I'm single again.
We've also exchanged a few snapchats with him being a bit flirty.
I've noticed he's on Facebook chat quite often but I'm too nervous to actually start a conversation. I keep thinking that if he was interested he'd have started talking to me first.
Also don't want to start a conversation to be disappointed that he's not interested but I can't keep wondering forever.
So should I speak to him and I don't want to just say hi, how are you?

If you don't you will always wonder 'what if?'

Nothing ventured nothing gained.

Go for it!

perhaps send a fb message instead? just a chatty hi, how are you - then he can take his time to reply and keeps it fairly casual. No rush I'd say, assuming you're both still young and just getting over breakups?

Oh a Facebook message is a good idea, then I won't be paranoid about having to think of a reply straight away.
Think I just need a bit of Dutch courage and then bite the bullet.
