we all know at least one star-like person, but...
do you know at least one black-hole-like-person?

I am not sure if i am taking your analogies too far, or not far enough:

By a star-like person, do you mean someone who "shines" in the sense that they give warmth and enlightenment to those around them, catalyze others into greater vigour... etc?

And conversely by a black-hole like person, do you mean somone who only takes and takes, no matter how much you give; someone who is incapable of giving back to the world?

If so, I cannot say I have met any strictly of either kind. I have found that even apparently star-like people have times when they replenish by taking something... whether from the same people they give to, or others. Likewise, I have met some people who come close to being "black holes", but there always seems to be something given, whether intentionally or not, and, there is always a learning experience from having known them.

I kind of think we all take turns approximating stars and black holes. But perhaps you meant something a bit different?

I knew a black hole like person, just standing close to her sucked all the life energy out of me

I also knew star like people, who's presence just brightened up the day!

Stars can quickly turn into a black hole.

Not that your girl friend isn't the brightest person in the UK, but mine is the brightest in the northern hemisphere, at least.

She can't be all that bright if she doesn't know about your Minnesota Mail-Order-Bride on the way! - unless, she has arrived and she is what you are referring to... in which case, uh, Zooby... We need to talk... :wink:
