Starting over

I am reading Straight Man by Richard Russo. I've just started, but the first chapter starts out with this observation about a character in the story:

It occurs to me as I study him that Teddy would have a hard time starting over—that is, learning how unfamiliar things work, competing, finding a mate. The business of young men.

So that got me thinking. Would I do well if I had to start over? In a way, I feel like I am just starting to do the things that young men do. Or at least just starting to do them well. So I think I would do pretty well if I had to start over in this fashion.
