When More Tech Arrives, More Loneliness Occurs
Most of our main technology has to do with not having to leave our home to accomplish things, and work from home jobs have only increased in the 2000s & 2010s. Soon we may not have to be anywhere we do not want to be, due to the potential for holograms of ourselves being in large meetings. Yet this lack of connection causes loneliness as well as a potential lack of possible relationships.
While dating apps help, the best surefire way to meet someone for a romantic connection is still in-person. Meaning you’re less likely to meet someone to develop a relationship with due to new tech that allows us this wonderful freedom. Yes, these freedoms are great and could be used to develop relationships. More often they make people want to push away and simply just stay home or remain in isolation overall.
