Brilliant Friends

I was talking to a friend who is going through the end of his marriage, and we were discussing the weirdness of being so much older now than we were the last time we dated. I've definitely grown a lot as a person since that period more than 4 years ago, but it seems my dating maturity hasn't. My friend put it perfectly:

It's as though my mind is 31, but my heart is still 21 in its capacity for excitement and nervousness. And now my mind doesn't really trust my heart, but still is letting it drive the ship.

That is exactly how I feel.
