One of the common conversations that I have with friends of all ages, once again, particularly mid-life people, is that whatever their situation, if they’re not in it, they all yearn for one more really romantic experience. That exalted, wonderful feeling that you say that you’ll never do again when you’re not in it, but nothing stands in the way of this. That’s what I think that this refers to.
