Bright Star - first love burns brightest? "Together they rode a wave of romantic obsession."
As someone who coaches people of all ages, and is also a Dating Coach, I would like to say that maybe the last love burns even brighter. Perhaps like a star moving on?
From a kids' astronomy site:
There are several different kinds of stars in the sky. Some are very big. A couple have been found that are 100 to 200 times bigger than the sun. At the end of their lives these large stars can stretch themselves out past the orbit of the planet Uranus.
If you are an older person in love, and feel like you are stretching out past the orbit of the planet Uranus, think of this compared to Keats writing that he felt he was "dissolving."
Keats agreed to teach Fanny Brawne poetry ... and a love affair began. The movie critics have noted that while it is "only words," the movie is "incredibly erotic."
They're having a contest for love letters. I love it because (1) you can enter a hand-written love letter OR (2) a tweet.
Enter and win! Love and win! If you're afraid to love, feel like you're holding back, have a commitment-thing, or just need dating coaching, email me - firstname.lastname@example.org. I specialized in helping singles over 40 find their True Love. I coach by email, phone, and in my office in the D.C. area.
