What do you mean when saying he acts like a "young master-wizard?"

People "reject" people for zillions of reasons.  Could be karmic, could be
personality clashes, could be the gentleman is not interested in a serious
relationship, could be. . .could be. . .could be. . .?

Absolutely, she can have and do both.  Romance teaches us many things -
compassion, sharing, caring, moves us away from self-focus.  Following the

Actually, in my opinion, telling her to "get another guy" may come across
as a dismissal of her emotions in this situation.  Perhaps gently
suggesting that she search and listen to her "inner voice" for guidance may
be more advantageous, especially while her pain is still quite raw.  I
seriously doubt, however, that this gentleman is a "once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity."  We sometimes think people are - especially when our emotions
are involved - but that rarely proves to be true.  I am sure there are
other gentlemen out there who will openly share with her love and

Unsure about Theosophy, but you got Kym's take on the happenings!
