KRIS WROTE: Read your article and loved it. I’m 46 — sounds like I wasn’t quite as “hot” as you in the looks department in my 20s, but I related totally to everything else in the article. I agree that “this side of young” is so much more satisfying and fulfilling. After chaotic romances and many crises in my 20s, I now have a wonderful husband and 2 kids and find great reward in my teaching career. And if I don’t quite have the energy I used to, well…it’s still enough energy to enjoy my kids and have a great intimate life. I wouldn’t go back to that time for all the $$ in the world! Looking forward to your book.
