Spinsters, old maids, and changing ideas about being single on Quirkyalone Day 2013

Here’s me talking about spinsters, old maids, and how our ideas about being single have changed on this Quirkyalone Day 2013 on a wonderful hourlong NPR show out of Illinois. This was a great conversation with lots of smart callers calling in about couples vs. singles culture in Japan, the birth rate, how we treat older people who live alone and how our society must step up to the plate to support them more, and much more. The host asked me what would happen if I do find my soul mate and I told him I would then model quirkytogetherness with my partner–I talk about my ideal quirkytogether union. For the record I don’t like the language “single by choice”–quirkyalone is much more complex than that! Here’s the show. Give it a listen and enjoy.

What’s a quirkyalone?

A quirkyalone is a person who enjoys being single (or spending time alone) and so prefers to wait for the right person to come along rather than dating indiscriminately. Quirkyalones prefer to be single rather than settle.
Quirkyalones can also be married or in a committed relationship (quirkytogether). You can be a man or a woman, any age.
Quirkyalone is ultimately a philosophy about finding happiness within yourself whether you’re single or in a relationship.
