I agree in some ways with what Don says, but think the right word for
the feeling Rosalind has is not 'maternal', but 'tender'. Tenderness is
perhaps something that boys and men express less easily than girls and
women (yes, I know, I'm being horribly generalised here)but it doesn't
have to be maternal, or paternal for that matter. It may be absolutely
part of a sexual and romantic feeling.
