Yes, we have different realities, different perspectives. Giving up is not gender specific. I recently relocated from Houston to Salt Lake. It was easier to meet interesting women there than here, and then it was not that effective. The doors close, the windows are shut after a certain age. The excitement, the wonder, the adventure disappears. I’m glad you have a full satisfying life, I’m jealous. I think my experience is more representative of reality, but then, I’m 73. Things may have changed as life passed me by.
