Most pop culture discussion about the single life points at how to avoid it at all costs. Starting from the Disney movies we watched as kids, we’re endlessly told that couplehood is the holy grail. But many people will tell you that they’ve grown more, changed for the better, and learned the most about themselves while flying solo than they have being in a relationship. So how can we get the most out of being single? What can we celebrate about aloneness? In this culture of coupledom, why can’t singledom be a great thing? Writer Natalie Karneef speaks with friends, experts and celebrities and gets their true tales on navigating the peaks and valleys of the unattached life.

Smart, fresh, and very relevant
This is a podcast that needs to be heard for anyone interested in modern relationships.
Chock full of eye-opening moments. A pleasure to see the single world through the eyes of this podcast's creator and the guests she features. Especially the man who talks about scabies with such gusto. Great new podcast on the scene! Loved this.
A really great podcast for anyone either single or coupled or somewhere in between. Natalie is a great writer and interviewer with a keen sense of narrative. The show is both intensely personal yet universal.
