Love – the elixir of life, that undefinable emotion that we so crave. No matter our age, the siren’s call of romantic love is hard to ignore. Yet by the time we are 65 or 75 or 95 most of our love relationships are platonic – still infused with a strong desire to be with that someone; a warmth from the interaction; and hopes for loyalty and compassion – yet without the adolescent passion. We pray love will go on forever; but such is fantasy.
When love is lost, be it romantic or platonic, we suffer and often try to replace it.
