Hmm! I think perhaps you’re right — men start with the more ‘visible’ things in their 20s and figure out there’s an emotional underpinning that also needs to develop, more slowly. Though I think plenty of women do exactly the same, these days. The 30s become the shock moment, it seems.
Thank you for the Minnie Driver comment, she’s lovely. Though I am Australian — so it’s more off-duty Cate Blanchett, actually! Perhaps the years living in the UK are having an effect….!
