The extraordinary tale of Mr Moustache

Once upon a time, a young man was left broken hearted and pledged to let his moustache grow until he found true love again. It took him nine long years before he fell in love desperately with a beautiful girl. As a vow of love, she asked him to shave the mustache she was not fond of. He quickly surrended to her request and they lived happily after … stop stop … Why then did I encounter him yesterday in front of la Madeleine with his magisterial moustache grown again ???

No, I did not invent this story as this man participated a few months ago to a French reality show called « Love is blind ». A true story that seemingly had a bad ending. Did Mr Moustache find out that love does not need pre-requisites ? I hope it won’t take another nine years before he finally finds his soulmate. Good luck Mr Moustache.  (click on picture to enlarge)

    Ah c’est superbe !
    La photo et l’histoire qui la précède, car figurez-vous que j’ai vu cette émission (improbable) avec une amie (oui, j’étais attaché) et nous-nous sommes épris pour ce bonhomme.
    Bonne continuation !
