Why You May Still Be Thinking About An Old Flame
Do you still occasionally think about someone special from your past? Do you sometimes wonder 'what if?' even though many years have passed – and each of you has ‘moved on’? Does a special someone still hold a tender place in your heart? If so, you may have experienced ‘love interrupted’ rather than a break-up. This episode is based on the fascinating research on lost love by Dr. Nancy Kalish.
