    Jim, thanks again for the biographical write-ups. I always find them interesting.

    Don’t you think there is something a little absurd about referring to older men like Jack Dunphy (who must have been in his 60s when Capote died) and Newton Arvin (who was in his 50s when he and Capote were lovers) by the term “boyfriend”? Lover, partner, companion, friend, all are better than “boyfriend” in these cases. I think once you’re past your 30s, you’re no longer anyone’s “boyfriend.”

    I agree with Jay, and I have to add that, no matter what your age, if you’re in a long term relationship, you’re not “boyfriends,” either.
