(Graphic: Kat Borosky/TueNight)And we’re celebrating with this issue!*
Why did we start TueNight way back in ye olde 2013?
Simply put: There wasn’t a women’s website or magazine that truly spoke our language.
Now in our 40s, we couldn’t find anything that wasn’t scolding us to dye our grays, cover pesky age spots or assumed that life was slowing down. The women we know are a hell of a lot more dynamic. Our similarly aged friends are traveling the world, starting new relationships, running businesses, going to concerts (does anyone say concerts anymore?), caring for kids (or not), choosing to slow down. And with that lifelong experience, there are many stories to be told, ideas to explore. As we like to say, “You, Part Two.”
As you know if you’re a faithful reader, TueNight’s stories are organized by weekly themes — from Tears to Wife to Sport to Power to Tribes — and they’re inspired by the conversations we’re already having with our friends.
We chose the following pieces because they truly reflect the hilarity, diversity and choices we all face, and the voice of TueNight.
- Dinosaur Jr. On Entering the Puberty of Old Age by Margit Detweiler
- Silly Things People Have Said to Me When I Tell Them I’m Not Having Kids by Tamar Anitai

* For those of you paying close attention you might notice that our actual birthday was August 28, but we had other topics to discuss. Cause we’re like that. We do things in our own time.
