“So intense is the need to connect, say the authors, that isolated individuals sometimes form parasocial relations with pets or TV characters.”

And? Something wrong with that?
Seriously, I was very bad at relationships till I met and raised my first dog. I promised myself if I couldn’t have a good relationship with this dog, I’d give up on human relationships. I learned a lot from that little dog. Maybe not enough. But I’m a little better!

Maybe I need to get an elephant next….
