Sergey Sidorin Posted over 1 year ago Is the internet adverse to intimacy? As i think, firstly, the internet made communications between people much more easier, then social networks were born, and while we were like "wow, now i can chat with a girl/boy i like, sitting still" we became to lazy to interact in "real world" So i think, the internet stolen the "play" part of intimacy, thus made us "boring" in real. I mean - what are you going to talk about on the first date/meet if u both already now nearly everything bout each other. Before it was like : Chat->conversation->play->friendship/relationships->love & sex Now internet stolen the chat&play part, so when couple of people meet in real, even after years of communication, they experience a problem: "i know him so well, but why im so nervous?", "what should i do now, are we already a couple or not?", "is it a date?" and so on. And everything goes very very wrong:) But, if a couple succesfully passes that first date, there's a chance that all gonna be ok, just because both just found a person with whom they can talk/chat ALOT about their similar interests etc.
