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 cross-cultural ideas about singlehood and coupling, 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 when I do find my soul mate. . . will this be the end of the road for quirkyalone?

I told him I will model quirkytogetherness with my partner. I talk about my ideal quirkytogether union at the end.

Here’s the show. Give it a listen and enjoy.
