It’s the holiday season, and if ever there was a story that could warm the cockles of your cold, cold heart, it’s this one. You see, Susan Boyle has her first boyfriend at the age of 53! She met her Prince Charming while over in the US doing a short promotional tour, as they were staying at the same luxury hotel in Florida. OMG, I love this story so much!
Here’s what she told The Sun (via US Weekly):
“It’s early days but we enjoy each other’s company,” Boyle told the outlet. “We just got talking in the hotel and I thought he seemed friendly enough. He wasn’t a fan but he knew who I was. He invited me out for lunch the next day, we had a nice chat and spoke about lots of things including our careers,” she continued.
“He was the perfect gentleman and even paid the bill. Afterwards we exchanged details. When we said goodbye he gave me a peck on the cheek,” she added.
“It’s very early days so we’ll see what happens. I hope he comes over,” SuBo revealed about his plans to visit her. “I don’t want to say any more about who he is right now as that would be unfair on him. All I’ll say is we are around the same age and he was a very nice guy.”
Oh, snap – get it, SuBo! I do really hope this guy likes her and that there’s something there. Then again, even if the guy was just being sweet, that’s nice, too. SuBo deserves love and happiness like everyone else! I imagine her Aspergers made it harder to form relationships like this in the past, but I think she’s actually received some proper and more manageable treatment since then, so I have high hopes for this romance!
