Musk is a man who strongly desires a companion. In late 2017, he told Rolling Stone, “If I’m not in love, if I’m not with a long-term companion, I cannot be happy. Going to sleep alone kills me. It’s not like I don’t know what that feels like: Being in a big empty house, and the footsteps echoing through the hallway, no one there – and no one on the pillow next to you. [Expletive.] How do you make yourself happy in a situation like that?”
