But . . .

This relationship might be in good shape:

“I wish he had a younger body, and I worry sometimes he thinks I’m stupid, but I love his mind and personal power, and I love our vibe together. I never feel this way with younger guys.”

“I sometimes wish she had more perspective on life, and I worry she thinks I’m just too old for her, but I love her body, and her curiosity, and I love our vibe together. She makes me feel young again.”
