iMessage not working for one iphone contact?

For one particular contact, I am unable to send messages through iMessage and they instead send as texts. Both of us have iPhones and have checked the settings. I reset my iMessage, and also restarted my phone but the messages continue to send as texts. Is there any way to fix this?

I had this problem, I fixed it by editing the mobile number in contacts. Just deleted the last digit and typed it back in. I thought the contact had iMessage turned off, and her go through settings but it was set correctly. It seems the early iOS 7 iMessage issues caused this issue in later version of iOS 7.1.x

I had two contacts I had to do this to.
