Three stories of the way technology can help us form connections and feel less alone.
Including Jo from Liverpool and Martin from Skelmersdale, single strangers who weren't looking for love - until they met in a virtual pub.
Plus Sheila and her daughter Lynn from Rotherham, who have both found comfort in a very low maintenance cat, called Willow.
And Dean, a retired psychiatric nurse from Ipswich who has found happiness in a hobby, which involves "love" dolls as artistic collaborators.
Presented and produced by Becca Bryers, with additional production from Shivani Dave.
With thanks to Peggy Walker and Grace Stead at BBC Radio Sheffield, Christine Willis at BBC Radio Merseyside, Jane Downs at BBC Radio Newcastle and Graham Tempest.
