If I will ever have a child I will tell him: In my generation we wanted love. We had Apps for love, and every night, before falling asleep, as the cold sheets scratched our skin, we sought love. We would swipe our fingers left and right over hundreds of faces without knowing that judgment is the killer of love. And we never managed to make our choices, because who knows what tomorrow will bring.

If I will ever have a child I will tell him: In my generation we were lonely. We had Apps for love. And had people around us who we never looked in the eyes and never smiled to. We had options for love but we never fell in one. We were lonely. And whenever we saw our loneliness looking back at us from someone else's eyes, we would turn away with disgust, because who dares to be so lonely. You see, we were lonely, and we had Apps for love.

And my boy will answer back to me: Father, you don't know what loneliness is, because in our progress we walk towards it, and you had Apps for love.
