    I saw my friend online again and asked her what she meant. She said she meant that She started contacted me not other wise although I haven't been in contact with her for a long time.....

    Can the word 'technically' mean that in the sentence? I am Russian and she is French but she lives in the states.

    Re: technically

    She means that if you were being precise, she didn't hear from you -- because you did not initiate the contact. Rather, you heard from her. You can avoid this by simply saying "It was nice being able to catch up."
