You pointed that out rightly. As a species, and the western world with access to all these gadgets is now communicating lesser and lesser on social circles and even to our our family members and friends. Look at the millennials now they even get to express their emotions on Twitter rather than on one-on-one basis.Our entire society strongly discourages face to face interaction. Laws now make many men timid of even talking to a woman, much less asking her out. No more Ice Cream socials, few single clubs and on and on. We are a sexually motivated species, yet we are doing everything possible (even if not intentional) to discourage propagation of the species. Is it really a surprise now?
