Love in the time of Coronavirus. That’s the hot topic, isn’t it? A modern struggle, a loss of control over whether or not we can still see the friends and family outside of our households. We ought not to leave our homes, what more date nights? We ought to be wary of the bodily fluids of others, what more intimate exchanges?
As everything starts to play out like a Black Mirror episode, it’s only apt that the internet ended up being the thing that kept us (somewhat) together and tore us apart all at once. For those lucky enough to have access to the internet, it’s instrumental in connecting with far-away loved ones, and it’s especially important to those who normally prefer quality time. Technology has blessed us with some of the tools we can use to help deepen our relationships with other people.
