In the last few days, I have not been able to open up a social media app without seeing comments about Emma Watson’s November 4th interview with British Vogue.
You know the one. I’m sure you do.
It’s the one where she talks about being comfortable as a single woman about to turn 30 and coins the lovely phrase ‘self-partnered’.
I’m 27 years old and I enjoy being single. I enjoy being alone without the pressure of having to share my life with anyone else if I don’t want to. So, of course, I identified with what Emma Watson was saying.
And then I watched the entire interview.
And I realized how little of their discussion was actually about being single and almost 30.
