Some might disagree with me, but here is the question I have. How can two people be in love if they have never touched each other? I’m not talking about sex, I’m referring to simply feeling the other’s skin. How about smell? There is a certain warmth and smell to someone that comes from being close, burying your nose in her neck, the smell of her hair, the smell of her skin. Can’t get that via Facetime.
How can two people be in love when their lips have never touched? Isn’t a kiss oftentimes the magic that helps you realize you’ve found true love? (or maybe this kiss makes you realize the opposite-that you aren’t in love.) And, can you really say you’re in love with a person whose hand you have never held or whose breath you have never breathed in?

Sorry, but I call bullshit on the article. To me it reads like a tear-down of modern interaction, another way to slight “millennials”. Not so many generations ago, people would communicate by letters in the post, and there are a great many examples of love forming via correspondence. True, that love wasn’t consummated until the two were together (not like today where you can watch each other touch yourselves via FaceTime), but the formation of that love occurred as people shared intimate details of their lives in writing.2
