Favourite quotes from the episode:

​"Today you don't choose between 2 people in the village, or 6 people at school, you choose between ​1,000 at your fingertips. That swiping culture gives you a dizzying level of options."

"How do I know I've found ~the one~? You're going to delete your dating apps."

"The burdens of the self have never been heavier. Today all the big decisions are on us."

"Friendship is one of the most beautiful relationships. You cannot be friends with someone that isn't friends with you. You can love someone who doesn't love you back, but friendship is a reciprocal relationship."

"We can't only use longevity in relationships as a marker of success."

On her podcast Where Do We Begin: "It's so raw and intimidate, it's almost scary."

On giving advice to friends: "What works for me, might not be what works for you."
