As the creator of a show about intimacy, do you think its becoming more difficult to make/maintain meaningful connections in the digital age?
I’m sure modern technology has helped people make more connections with others, but we have a bigger population now. There’s no way to gauge how much more meaningful these connections are compared to “the time before.” I think the more we are able to communicate and talk to others, the definition of relationships in general has to take on a new meaning.
Did people have more meaningful relationships before the telephone was invented? I doubt it, and also, who cares? The question itself doesn’t really change what we mean when we talk about “the meaning behind human connection” or the importance we put on such things in the first place. This answer makes me sound like an asshole but I honestly have no idea.
