Also agree with what passes today as “friends” for many of the younger generation.  The ”idiot box” type of websites have led to a generation of people who don’t have real conversations.  Lack of real interaction leads to only superficial friendships that are never tested past the first shallow degree.

That’s why we have so many people suffering from depression because they are lonely (while still surrounded by people). Meaningful relationships grow through shared experiences. Real experiences. Once you take that away, you end up with hollow constructs that are not holding up well once some **** happens.
