yea, I think that's a good part of it.

I think another reason is that it's becoming easier and easier to fill every empty moment with phone usage, so it's becoming less and less socially acceptable to strike up a talk with a random person, just in case you're interrupting something, y'know?

and at least for me, it's easier to distract myself with a laptop or something in public than to interact with people more and actually overcome whatever anxieties I've got and get better at making friends. that's probably a common one, unless i'm over-projecting.
