My theory is that we as a society are becoming more disconnected from each other, even though our technology is supposedly bringing us closer together.It reminds me of a cartoon I saw once, where a group of people are in a web cafe, each surfing the Net.I am surprised that twelve years after my own struggle, people still have the same issues around meeting people.
