No Response to Thank You Email after Coffee Chat

Hey Everyone, I had a virtual coffee chat with an alumni during the day around 12 PM and thought we had a great conversation. I sent a thank you email shortly later (2-3h later), but haven't received a response yet. Should I be worried? Is that on purpose?

No, people don't always have time or care enough to respond.

I'll get responses to thank you emails about 10% of the time, even if that.

In my experience, it seems like responses to thank you notes are the exception, rather than the norm.

I wouldn't worry about it too much.
