Opinion

Why don't women walk away from a bad date? I'll tell you why

In the less-woke time of only a few years ago, I was like a lot of women. I didn't report the bad things that happened to me on dates. Or at work. Or in life in general.

Season 1 Mixtape | Alone: A Love Story

Music is a big part of Alone: A Love Story. Here's the mixtape!

Chapter 1: Not if, how

Alone: A Love Story begins on my 39th birthday, in the fall of 2013. The opening vignette called Loss starts in the summer of 1999 when I first meet The Scientist (aka The Husband, aka The Ex-husband) ...

Chapter 2: Why not?

We start this chapter of Alone: A Love Story in the year 2000. I have just moved out of my five year common-law relationship with The Musician and into my relationship with The Scientist ...

Chapter 3: The feelings I don't feel

This episode takes place between 2002-2007, basically from the time we got married right up until I was just about to have a baby. Which accounts for the episode title -- all the feelings I didn't feel, but took a chance on anyway ...

Chapter 4: Impossible to see

This is the vignette I was most worried about people hearing. Not because of Birdie, she knows I'm telling stories about her and not only the good parts, but the hard parts ...

Chapter 5: The bomb

I think this is maybe the most beautiful and heartbreaking vignette in the whole series. This one is for anyone who has ever been in a long-term relationship ...

Chapter 6: Fallout

Until The Bomb, I was a good Italian girl for the most part. I did everything I was supposed to do, and still I got cut down with one swift chop. I came undone so easily ...

Chapter 7: Protection

Kleenex alert! This story seems to really connect with people, or at least really make them cry. I named this chapter after one of my favourite songs ever, Massive Attack's Protection. Man, do I love this song ...

Chapter 8: Left and leaving

It may seem silly to you, that a grown woman had trouble sleeping alone in her own nice bed in her own nice apartment, but it's true ...

Chapter 9: Freedom

I call this chapter Freedom because it's about an awakening period. It's about Michelle 2.0 emerging, slowly and drunkenly out of the fallout of The Bomb ...

Chapter 10: Forza

Forza means strength in Italian, and this whole chapter takes place in Italy, the country that runs in my veins ...
