I don't think you can tell somebody 'I love you' and make it stick online.

Our bodies still exist. We still have needs, strong needs, to see, touch and smell people.

This creates a new basis for community. Rather than relying on a single community for social support, individuals often must actively seek out a variety of appropriate people and resources for different situations.
