Research has shown that loneliness can lead to emotional and psychiatric disorders, and can even have negative effects on the body. Loneliness on the scale we’re currently seeing is bound to result in higher medical costs across the board, which eventually affects everyone. The divisiveness we’re seeing in society bleeds into my work as a matchmaker. It used to be that people with different ideologies could have happy relationships. Now people treat different ideologies as an automatic dealbreaker. I connect this trend to the loneliness epidemic because people are not spending time face to face to find commonalities in spite of different beliefs or leanings. The more we separate from each other, the lonelier and more divided we become as a society.
