You comfort your grieving friend online over chat, but you can’t reach out and touch their shoulder. You buy shoes at Zappos, comparison shopping all your favorite brands, but you can’t make eye contract with the check out clerk and smile at some silly joke they make. You get advice from a therapist online, but you can’t see in their eyes that your story touches a nerve. You flirt online, but you can’t sneak a kiss.
