Counterfeit intimacy
Technology-based relationships give us counterfeit intimacy – superficial relationships that do not require the hard work of exploring and progressing with a loved one. Without the sorrow that comes with love, we cannot know true joy.

One thought on “Technology and Fake Love

  1. I appreciate your following my blog.
    And I especially appreciate your candor in your “Touch vs. Tech” series. I am the only person I know who refers to this mass addiction to mobile devices (cellphones and smartphones) as what it is–an addiction. And it is fantastic to know of anyone else who candidly speaks of this addiction to Digital-Age technology, and its devastating effect on human relationships.
