Divorced for two years from Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒), Cecilia Cheung (張柏芝) has grown accustomed to raising sons, Lucas and Quintus, on her own. Despite her failed marriage, Cecilia remains hopeful that she will find love again and is ready for another relationship.
According to an article in Jayne Stars, Cecilia revealed that she is now looking for a more stable and older man who has already matured in his thinking. Cecilia said,“That’s why I want to find a man who is 40 to 43 years old! Although I’m used to being single, I do feel lonely at times.”
Although known as a former wild child and linked with various men, including Edison Chen (陳冠希), Jordan Chan (陳小春) and Ronald Cheng (鄭中基) in her early career, Cecilia revealed that she was naive in her first relationship and suffered great hurt.
Cecilia found out in the worst way that she had unwittingly become a third party in the relationship. She did not know that her boyfriend at that time already had a girlfriend. “When the girl came to visit him, he shoved me into the closet.” Although Cecilia could have confronted the girlfriend at that time, she chose to continue hiding in the closet for half an hour to avoid hurting the other girl.
Cecilia believes that a woman’s perspective of love will change as she ages and experiences different life stages. Cecilia pointed out that a woman who has reached her late twenties will want to find a stable home and become a mother.
“Men like young and beautiful women with soft skin. But they only know how to spend money and ask the guys to buy things for them. But women in their thirties are more lasting. Look at Carina Lau (劉嘉玲) or Cherie Chung (鐘楚紅) with their womanly charms. They are so much more beautiful than women much younger than them!”
