Because of the anonymous nature of many of today’s interactions it can make it difficult to build trust and create real, authentic, genuine connections. This situation can leave you feeling alone, despite all the noise and even reluctant to try to build new connections.

Are you happy to connect via text or email (the written word), by phone (to hear their voice) or do you crave the connection that only an in-person, face-to-face relationships offer.
