The story of a 29-year-old man who recently quit his job in Yunnan to find his 62-year-old girlfriend who’d suddenly left shows that love truly has no boundaries when it comes to age.
According to Sina Weibo, Zhu Jing (alias) met his cougar girlfriend through WeChat’s “Shake” feature (a dating feature which allows you to find people in your area) almost a year ago.
“I see her shadows everywhere,” Zhu says.
“She was beautiful. She’s over 60 years old but looks like she’s in her 40s. It was my first love. It was my first time with a girl. I think of her night and day. I see her shadows everywhere,” Zhu told reporters.
When she suddenly disappeared from Zhu’s life and wouldn’t contact him, the besotted young man left his job and headed to the woman’s hometown in Xiangtan, Hunan province. He managed to track down her family, who did not welcome his arrival with open arms. The woman’s son, daughter-in-law and ex-husband threw him out whenever he came looking for her.
“I think of her night and day.”
“Get out of here,” says the son.
“Get out of here,” a son of the man’s girlfriend was captured saying to Zhu on video.
“Your mom says she loves me,” Zhu stammers.
The woman’s daughter-in-law was told reporters that “We have become the laughing stock of the entire neighborhood.”
“We’re already divorced and yet he comes looking for me. He’s been here since last September, keeps asking me for my ex-wife,” the woman’s ex-husband said, slamming his divorce certificate down in front of Zhu.
Zhu told reporters that she’d previously said she will marry him and that he doesn’t want to give up on her.
