Single Woman Seeking Manwich With Awkwafina: This week on Modern Love the Podcast, the actor, and rapper Awkwafina read “Single Woman Seeking Manwich,” an essay about the often boring/sad online dating scene and the strange war tales it produces.
Sarah Moses is a fan of the Modern Love column and had wanted to write a piece for a long time. She realized that the sandwich incident gave her perfect material.
“I mean, it was just funny. And kind of sad. And that sort of sums up online dating,” she says.
The author, Sarah Moses, is still on the lookout for love, but she’s stopped swiping right on sandwiches. She works in publishing in New York City.
Awkwafina appears, most recently, in “Crazy Rich Asians.” Stick around after the reading for reflections from her, Ms. Moses and the Modern Love editor Daniel Jones.
