quite an age gap. these hotels do not see you face to face when checking in or checking out, but I am sure there are surveillance cameras up the ying yang in case something like this happens

Hmm. Where have I heard this reasoning before? Is there a crib sheet all these fruitcakes read from?

Poor woman.

Another victim of the "if I can't have you nobody can" moronic mindset

Wow! Mommy issues much?

I can't understand the logic behind the whole "If I can't have you, nobody else will!" Its so selfish. He's a 13 year old 31 year old's body.

Not sure why some people are focussing on the ages of the people here?

A tragedy.

my great-grandmother always clipped me on the ear and said "there are plenty of fish in the sea". This is best advice, just drink a bottle Jack, and go and find somebody better. My motto is "if they think I'm not good enough for them, then they are the loser. they are not good enough for me".

RIP

If she had been thinking to break up, why would you check in to a love hotel to do so. Unless break-up sex exists here too.

Do they just copy/paste this line in every time this happens? Actually, the whole article could be pasted by just changing the names, dates and places. (roll eyes)
