I basically agree with your assessment.
However, I'll add that I definitely have some friends (people that I consider friends, and vice versa) who I've known for a long time, who I reach out to more than they reach out.
Over the years, I just got to know that that's the kind of person they are; they don't make lots of phone calls, they're busy with work a lot, etc., so I don't mind being the one to call them most of the time, say.
But in general, again, I'd say you're correct.

Good work, friend!
