Finally, I also love my age but supposedly people mainly (arbitrarily?) search by round numbers – so, for the record, I’m 51 not 50. When I parse through all the clutter of what makes a great relationship with a man, I think it’s a mixture of two core things – a solid friendship that is lit by a flame. How one gets there, of course, is the mystery. Whether one’s pheromones continue to slumber or stand up and danc
