Dogs are the best company

Who the most important people in my life will be in the future “I can’t say […] at this point […]. Everything is always changing. But a dog is likely.”


We asked, you answered.

How would you describe yourself?

38 years, white, CIS woman, bisexual, fighter for female sexual self-determination, Chihuahua person, freelancer

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

I can’t say that at this point

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

I can’t say that at this point either. Everything is always changing. But a dog is likely.

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

It has a huge significance today and will continue to do so in the future. With many and in many different forms.

How do you manage to stay mentally and physically fit?

Sport. Vegan diet. Very little alcohol. Pleasure and fun in life.

How do you afford everyday life in the future?

Investments. And work. Personally, retirement is not yet a goal that I would necessarily want to achieve.

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

For life as such.

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?

Don’t take the world and especially myself too seriously. And fight for your own values and principles and live up to them. Loving and colourful togetherness 24/7 and sh*tting on social norms and conventions 🙂
