"DISCONNECTING" AND "DISCONNECTED" ARE TWO VERY DIFFERENT THINGS

Offline: how’s it going? 

I know I’m not the first person to recognize this, but much of the charm in “taking a break from the internet” is that you end up viewing the real world through the prism of “I’m taking a break from the internet right now,” and then you get back on the internet to tell everybody about what a good time you had.

A face-to-face coffee date is very different than Facebook flirting, and a really great use of time, but it’s easiest to see the novelty and value of it when you have a Facebook to compare it to.

"Disconnecting" and "disconnected" are two very different things, as I’m discovering.
