Middle-Aged And Living Alone09:04Download


When Sandra Tsing Loh visited the home of her recently divorced friend, she admired the "clutterless" cottage that looked like it could be on HGTV. But beyond the "snowy luxury-spa fantasy," she began to wonder what it's like to be middle-aged, single and living alone.

In her New York magazine piece "Does Living Alone Drive You Mad?" she explores the good and bad of being a single-person household. Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson speaks with Loh about her impressions of this growing population.
