My tip for the future: “Stay away from romantic relationships”.


We asked, you answered.

How would you describe yourself?

33 year old white cis-female German, boring office job, living in Berlin

Imagine you are 72, 80 or even 99 years old: How and with whom do you live together?

Probably in a small flat in Berlin

Who are the most important people in your life and how do you spend time with them?

The friends still being alive, we go for walks or talk via new technogical devices because we still live in a pandemic

What is your sex and love life like in the future?

I will have none

How do you manage to stay mentally and physically fit?

Probably barely, but I hope I will read books and make drawings, write or make music

How do you afford everyday life in the future?

I hope that will somehow be possible

In the future, what do you get up for in the morning?

Art, books, nature

If you had to tell a young friend about all the things you’ve done right while ageing and would thus recommend to them… What would they be?

Stay away from romantic relationships

– Original version: English –
