Season 2, Episode 7: Aimée Lutkin Asks, "When Can I Say I'll Be Alone Forever?"
May 3, 2017
Aimée Lutkin, a comedian and a writer based in New York City, wrote an article for Jezebel in December that asked the question, “When Can I Say I’ll Be Alone Forever?” I was drawn to it because I’m single and am trying to get comfortable with the idea that that might be always be the case, but also because of the way Aimée explored that idea: honestly, both without self-pity and without a sugar-coated ending. She basically said: “I haven’t dated anyone in a long while, I’m not sure I will again, because it doesn’t seem to be working out, and I wish people would allow for me to say that, because for one, it’s a true concern, and secondly, my life is pretty rich as it stands, and that should be acknowledged. It is by me. I wish it were by other people.” This episode takes the shape of a chat between the two of us. Listen below.
