I find it amazingly ironic how so much communication available these days makes up for colder and cynic communications between anonymous strangers miles away and doesn't seem to improve at all on personal relationships where people are treated like fast food.
the Drive-Thru generation, practically. For almost every circumstance. I love the internet, don't get me wrong, it is actually where I experienced my most meaningful relationship of all (I met my husband in 1994 on the internet - I was the only person in my social circle who had an email address), but sometimes the good stuff can be not so good if it's relied on replacing real life rather than enhancing it.

My husband and I recently read a book called "Alone Together" by Sherry Turkle, which discusses this very thing in great detail.
