The partner looking to open up would see it as a positive with a chance for growth as they define it which is neither right or wrong.
If any referance to "new ageyness" was implied, I apologize, because having never actually used that word, it was not implied or intended.
I admire your attempt to put your statement into E-prime (English Prime, which is a practical application of General Semantics and more information on this can be obtained through Googling these terms), but I would replace the word "would
" with "might
" or "may
" and venture that the "IMO" is superfluous. However, you get an "A" for effort.
The remark about "new-ageyness" was originally made by Seventh Crow; I thought we all knew that, but perhaps it was not made clear that that is what I was referring to. It certainly could have sounded like I was saying it was you who said that.
Stick a fork in me, anyone?
