Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
If you want to know it…I’ve had heartbreak. The man I was carrying the torch for turned out to be a rat… ( Gardner’s “Bedrooms Have Windows”)
carry a torch for somebody = be all over someone
Thank you for your efforts.
Thank you for your backing.
carry torch for somebody = live through an unrequited love
