How do you get family that you have had a regular relationship over email to reply to your emails when you ask how they are doing? We have always gone out dinner with about 8 couples for dinner all set up over email. Since the pandemic started 4 out of 8 couples never respond. Questions about how and what they are doing never get returned We are just interested in their well being. Any thoughts?
My thoughts are that during a pandemic no news is good news! First of all, that’s really lovely that you have 8 couples that have had fun and regular dinners and visits pre pandemic. You must really miss that a lot. Some people are more extroverted and communicate more readily and some people are very analytical and just reply when there is something concrete to reply to. Please don’t take it personally as we are in very difficult times and everyone is reacting differently. I am sure it’s not personal as our social lives have been turned upside down, and we have also had more time to think about who is staying in touch and who is not. Don’t let any resentments form about this, it’s just not worth it, life is too short. I am sure if anything was wrong you would have heard about it through the grapevine so assume everyone is coping and when everyone is vaccinated you will have a big dinner party together. In the meantime, you could pick up the phone and call the chattier person of each couple just to say hi and see how they are doing. If they don’t answer just leave a message to give you a call back when it’s good for them and that’s all you can do. I am so grateful we have so many ways of communicating which weren’t available in the last pandemic. Hang in there, hopefully you will all be together again this year.
