Dear Teachers,

1. Beauty goes with age and love wears off.

- What does "wears off" mean here?

2. I think it's possible for such a relationship to come along.

- "come along" here means "develope", right?

3. Her would-be husband is very handsome.

- I think "her fiance" is better than "her would-be husband", right?

4. I think you and I should break up now, just because we are not very compatible.

5. I now don't have my state of mind to love anyone, please give me some time to relax and I'll think about it.

- Are 4 & 5 natural?

Thanks a lot to Teachers,

Stevenukd.

1. Beauty goes with age and love wears off.

- What does "wears off" mean here? -- deteriorate through use or stress; diminish, as by friction

2. I think it's possible for such a relationship to come along.

- "come along" here means "develope", right?-- Right!

3. Her would-be husband is very handsome.

- I think "her fiance" is better than "her would-be husband", right?-- Would-be husband suggests that one of them is not so committed to the relationship: either she wishes he would be her husband, or he wishes he would be her husband. It is not clear which without more context, but it is presumably not both.

4. I think you and I should break up now, just because we are not very compatible.-- Natural, but would probably be spoken with a lot more stuttering and spluttering.

5. I now don't have my state of mind to love anyone, please give me some time to relax and I'll think about it.-- Not so natural. Try: I'm not in a state of mind to love anyone now; please give me some time to think about it.

2. I think it's possible for such a relationship to come along. To come your way, happen ...

5. I now don't have my state of mind to love anyone, please give me some time to relax and I'll think about it. I am not in the proper mindset/mood to love anyone ...

Ah, yes!-- I agree with Marius' #2. That is also a good possibility.
