Some people do not find the Star all that positive. In fact, some people find it very distant and cold. And it is. So I don't think you should "redeem" this person from being selfish and self-centered just yet. We may wish that cold and distant men were really Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice
, really warm and good underneath, but, alas, too many are exactly what they seem to be.
As for the Star, it does stand for Hope--but people forget that The Star doesn't make any promises; it doesn't say, "Keep the faith, it will happen!" The Star says, "It could happen. Maybe. In the distant future. If you keep on course." Hopeful, yes. But that hope isn't going to be a reality any time soon, nor will if happen without focus or effort. Which means that there's many a soul out there gazing up at the Star, imagining what could be yet never achieving it because they become distracted, or don't want to work for it, or don't want to deal with all the things in their way to it or are just too, well, selfish and lazy to bother.
This, I would say is your guy and his feelings. Wishes upon a Star that could come true, but only if he's willing to change and make an effort. Just because there is hope of it happening doesn't mean it will happen. From what you say, he would rather keep that hope in a change between you cold, distant, and in the unrealized future rather than trying to bring it down to Earth.
