    I have a friend who I met in England when they were an exchange student. We became good friends, but now they are living back in their own country.

    Despite having the person on social media, I rarely speak to them. The person sometimes initiates a conversation, but then does not answer my reply. I have another exchange student friend, and I speak to them nearly everyday.

    I'm not sure what I am asking from you. But is this normal? How can I keep in contact with them? Am I doing something wrong?

    Some people just don't talk a huge amount, I guess.

    Sometimes you'll be good friends with someone at some point in your life, but barely keep contact later on. It is pretty normal.

    Yes, only 1 hour difference though.

    I have a few friends like this and for us, it's not an issue.
