Human life span has been greatly lengthened compared with just 30 years ago. It was 60 years old when people was retired. Now even if you are 70 years old, more people are still working in front line. With your life has become longer, your relationships that you create are getting more and complexd. Plus your society has become complicated. The more complicated the human relationship, you just want to be alone! It seems odd but could be natural to think that "I want to be alone" or "I want to live only with a person with whom it meets."
Do you know, people who live in a huge mansion have their own bathroom for each person. That is the trend of new "gourgeous house". They do not want to share anything in a huge house. People are getting into their own tiny shell.
