  1. Jane Austen’s Persuasion is the classic example of the woman who is nostalgic for a relationship that was broken by circumstance. Whether to reconnect would depend on whether the circumstances had changed.

    From the gents’ perspective, assuming, older and wiser, does it ever work out with the such women years later?
