Is the contact that you are trying to send this message Online on Skype? The status icon next to this contact’s name must be solid green with a white checkmark inside.

No, it has the green cloud with the green arrow. They accepted my contact request and the request and any messages after that from me have the grey swirling circle. Is there any way to send them?

Re: Messages

This means that the contact has set Call Forwarding. Calls can be forwarded to another Skype user or to a phone. If this contact is offline then you might be able to call but not to send any text messages.

Ok. Yesterday they were online though, and I tried to message them in the box at the bottom but the grey circle came up again. So on the toolbar on the top I clicked conversation->send->and IM, File, and Contacts were the only things available to click on(SMS and Voice Message were in grey). And I clicked on IM and sent a message and the usual happened(even though they were online)
