I think that must be who they, whoever this is, meant in suggesting this missed romance (COUGH!) but where, oh WHERE, is there any idea or indication or reference that CS Lewis had a thing for Virginia Woolf? And if that's true, how is this an allegory for said unrequited love?

No, not even close. It is an allegory for the Bible. Aslan represents God/Jesus Christ (you know, He's referred to as a lion in the Bible numerous times).
