Reviving The Heart
A dating coach's insight on love and loss.

I can’t pretend to know what losing a life companion feels like, particularly losing one suddenly and so soon into a union. But I do know that Joe’s wife will never truly leave him, not simply due to memories, but because he’s changed as they’ve shifted in their lives as a couple. And even though he has lost what he expected to be his lifelong partner, the love inside of him will always exist.

As I ended my thoughts, Joe’s Facebook status updates on my computer screen. It says he has learned that love lives on beyond the body and concludes as mobile, tagged updates do on Facebook: “with JoAnn White*.”


*This is a true story, but names have been changed.
