    My dad always call up his niece (is that the boy version or is it nephew idek) who is my cousin and he lives in another country.

    I've never really talked to him or know him well but my dad tell me "his life is tough" and really need a "friend" even though he has loads so I'm forced to talk to him after every time they face time.
    The conversation usually goes down like "are you well" then random smiles and silence and " how are you doing in school? "

    Honestly it's so awkward It's cringy
    How do you even deal with this? Long distant relatives are like strangers

    I feel you! When my parents put on skype with random relatives you have never seen before it's really awkward. I presume that you are of similar ages so maybe just talk about your hobbies with each other. Break the ice one day and try and create a really interesting conversation! If you don't try it will be awkward every time you talk
