Another 40 yr old woman flies off to be with her toyboy after a holiday

Granted there will be people who do fall in love on holiday (hurrah for love) and I have nothing against toy boys (I would quite like one myself) but my cynical side thinks this lady is being used.
Why would you give up your entire life (and one of your children) for someone you have only known for two weeks.

Men do have toy girls, but they rarely give up their life to make the relationship work.

Am I a cynic or do you honestly believe this is love?

kids are for life, relationships aren't necessarily (IMO)

I suspect it is the final fling of a very lonely woman, trying to convince herself she isn't getting old.

Feel very sorry for her daughter, who obviously feels loved and cherished (NOT).

40's not old

Mum2girls Tue 09-Aug-05 11:00:28

neither is 42

Easy Tue 09-Aug-05 11:02:22

Didn't say it was (I'm older than you both).

Just sometimes you wonder whether life is over, don't you?

I suspect this lady will feel an awful lot older when she has been dumped by her DJ boyf after 18 months

Tinker Tue 09-Aug-05 11:04:20

Blimey, not yet! I'm being theatrically touchy here Easy, not overly serious. You can feel life is over at any age though really. Felt more like that 10 years ago, not now.

I met dp and moved in with him within 2 weeks of meeting him so I know it can happen and be genuine BUT I certainly wouldn't reccomend it and would never ever leave my kids for any man.

We didn't meet on holiday though, we met over the cb.

Tinker, same light heartedness here (the problems of Non-visual conversation)

dillydally Tue 09-Aug-05 11:07:34

Actually if the pair of you start virtual fisticuffs, i can join the threads that have blown up in my face thread

I always look for the silver lining me...

Tinker Tue 09-Aug-05 11:08:34

dd and easy

Blu Tue 09-Aug-05 11:10:22

Oh God please never let me be so desparate that I throw all dignity to the winds, abandon my child, and flatter myself that the predatory lust of some penniless beachside lothario is true love, for ever and ever amen.

Mum2girls Tue 09-Aug-05 11:20:07

and please don't take my earlier comment as an indication of my real age (Good god, I'm not that ancient).

Oh come on now, she was generous enough to leave her dd a whole £35 to live on.

I read this only because dh bought The Sun today, what joy! My favourite quote was from the boyfriend who said: "I like her even though she is an old lady!"


WigWamBam Tue 09-Aug-05 22:47:38

And what's wrong with being 42?

Is this the woman who has 5 kids by 5 different fathers, who put one child into care at the age of 11? who didn't bring the 15 year old because the 15 year old hadn't contributed enough towards the costs? She didn't leave the girl with £35 - she gave her £10, the other £25 was the girl's own savings.

Not a question about whether the latest fling is true love - the woman is obviously off her rocker, and can have no real concept of self-worth or love.

Thats true Ladymuck, I should have said she left her a whole £10!

It was the situation she had of using alternate nights in her apartment to let her other daughter sh*g her holiday boyfriend! And imagine the disgrace of the one left behind that she wanted to do her GCSEs. Maybe she wants to make something of her life rather than tramp her way around Europe.

Hmmm. FIL DID recently give up his life (he has some limited (by her) contact with us, but not his other son or the vast majority of his mates- she has joined his social group to ensure this) he says he is happy, but from what we hear (hoping to see him next week for the first time in six months) she is running him ragged, he has given her every penny one way or another.

She is fifteen years younger, but actually RATHER ODD- virgin til she met him.

RE: the stories though, the minute you leave your daughter alone for ANYONE you blow it with me I am afraid. WTF is she on?

He's a DJ too apparently - and this will be her fourth marriage

She needs a serious reality check
