In his book Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone, NYU sociologist Eric Klinenberg describes Sasha as “something of a hero for the growing ranks of singletons who are learning to feel secure with their status, and she is often their public face. She appears frequently on popular national television and radio programs to explain that going solo is a viable, legitimate, and not necessarily lonely way to dwell in a city—a point that is surprisingly controversial given how many people are already living alone.”
Sasha speaks not only about being single but also about equal relationships, dating, self-marriage and tango. She is frequently quoted as a dating and lifestyle expert in press such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, NPR, and Washington Post.
Sasha’s work as a writer, coach and community-builder has been featured by more than 100 national, international, and local outlets.
She does a lot of interviews around February 14 (Valentine’s Day, AKA International Quirkyalone Day!).
She also speaks on feminism, women’s issues, female sexuality, to-do lists, work-life balance, and leading a meaningful life.
