My personal goal with the quirkyalone movement was never to suggest people stay single forever. No limitations! We QAs can enjoy all the permutations of connection that life has to offer.
A month after my original Quirkyalone essay was published, a reader in an Utne Reader chat room asked, “How many here feel that being quirkyalone means really being alone? Can it also mean having a solid core of yourself that doesn’t ever dissolve in the warm bath of love?” That’s exactly right.
Being quirkyalone is about learning to be so solidly yourself that you can connect with another intimately without dissolving in that warm bath of love.
But let’s be honest
For many of us, being quirkyalone has meant being romantically alone. When we enjoy being single, it’s easy to stay single. It’s so good having all this freedom to do exactly what we want, when we want to do it. We get comfortable. So comfortable we fear that getting together means losing our freedom and these wonderful lives we have created.
Challenge your assumptions about love
Challenging your assumptions about relationships will give you more freedom to tap into the kind of relationship you really want and to create it. You’ll be more clear and radiant and able to attract the right partners for you.
I’m so proud of this weeklong class and excited about the possibilities for everyone who takes it. This is going to be an amazing learning and growing experience together. I want to help you discover the right kind of quirkytogether relationship for you.
The class will run from July 27 to August 3. Join this weeklong class and you’ll get to connect with others who share this vision and start imagining and manifesting your quirkytogether relationship, whatever that looks like for you.
