QUESTION:
I used to be really close with one of my guy friends. We would always hang out and I would pretty much tell him everything. We're not as close anymore because he moved but we still keep in touch. We Skype at least once a week, but we don't text each other everyday about the little details of our lives anymore.
 
I know that with time people just slowly grow apart. I've been noticing that we don't really talk much anymore when we Skype. He'd go on his phone or I'd do work or something. I feel like I end doing most of the talking just so we're not just staring at each other lol. I mean I don't really find the silence awkward but I'm just puzzled because he's the one who would always initiate the call but he never really has anything particular to tell me.
 
Has anyone been in a similar situation? I would think that since the we didn't have a good/solid conversation the last few times that he would stop asking to Skype but he hasn't. I'm always up for Skype even though we don't talk much because I still miss him. Maybe he feels the same? I'm so silly to even be writing this. I'll just ask him next time. But if you have similar experiences feel free to share.

  1. I think this is pretty normal.
    It's hard to keep a good friendship going over distance.
    I've had this happen to me too. Sometimes I'll have a phone date with a friend I haven't talked to in months, and I can't seem to find much to say.

    One thing that came to mind reading your post- I'm assuming you're a female. Is it possible he has a girlfriend who doesn't like that he's talking to you all the time? I know some girls who might have a problem with that sort of thing. Although if he's the one initiating the call, that would be kind of weird. Anyway, just a thought.

  2. he used to have a thing for you, now he doesnt/now he has a thing for someone else but is trying to keep the friendship going so it is not odd and possibly out of habit.

    1. ^ This + ppl have a tough time with LD relationships; this is much less in comparison.
