    That being said, I see there is a reason why Patrick is always dating older women. Because they chase him, and he just grabs what opportunity offers. Of course, that's my speculation, as always.
    Oh if he were a grabber, he certainly has opportunities. There are aggressive young ones after him, yelling out saucy proclamations, unaware that his mother is often nearby.

    I think John Travolta explained it best years ago, "At my age, most women are older." But he was dating much older women. I consider a year or two age difference contemporary.

    Anyway, it's Patrick's life. I'm happy for him if he is. But we make his skating career our business, don't we? That's what fans do.

    John Travolta certainly had spoken for Patrick! Good point, I though of it myself after posting but was too lazy to correct myself.

    I always thought Anastasia/Patrick relationship was doomed by the distance on top of his schedule. Tess, though New York based, has family connection and support as well as seemingly more flexible time. She even travels with him. 近水楼台先得月.

    That's why I said Anastasia is one mom farther than Tess! BTW, so you know she is truly 3 inches taller than Patrick:

    I wouldn't hold her height against her. Many trophy wives are tall. Successful men are not concerned about taller spouses.

    Tess looked like a sweet and caring person. And smart too. They certainly have gotten both families' approval. Look how happy Patrick's mom was!

    On a side note, so many skaters have already announced the names of their next year's programs and are starting to choreograph them. When was Patrick's usual time to announce his?

    Patrick keeps his program a secret until the very last moment.

    Perhaps he will have better luck keeping it a secret than the secret of who is girlfriend was.

    Patrick was not prepared to provide full disclosure before his girlfriend's permission but he couldn't help talking about her and thus leaving clues. Since then she has frequently been seen with him publicly so there is no intention of keeping the relationship a secret. That would be like trying to keep his competitive programs secret during the competitive season!

    I agree with you. Patrick was silly telling reporters about Anastasia Bucsis. He made some progress handling Tess's case. He doesn't have to hide Tess, but he does't have to tell the media her name either. They don't need to know, keep them guessing who she is.

    As for girlfriend, If he really wants to keep it a secret He will say it's a secret.
    He said it's a secret who choreographer is.
    But he gave clues about girlfriend.
    But I want to hear more about Patrick in here.

    Nice pics.

    But if you want those of Patrick, the Japanese fan site I posted has lots more, e.g

    https://plus.google.com/photos/10647...CJ_xh9vm17OuCw

    https://plus.google.com/photos/10647...I7ZrK_QsbjylQE

    https://plus.google.com/photos/11288...I-bqJufkNy7rgE


    What intrigue me are those of Jeremy taking the bows with him and the series with him and his coaches, ending up with him down on the ice.

    Patrick has never told his girlfriend Tess's name to media. But the clue he gave to the media made fans discovered her soon after. On the other hand, we don't want Patrick to be too tight lipped, do we?! We want to know more about Patrick, not just on ice... ...anyway, I'm so happy for Patrick!

    Canadian media have more respect of public persons' privacy so they would not have revealed more about his relationships than he does. However, the relationship is very open and if Patrick were an American celebrity, their pics and stories (including made-up ones) would have been all over the place. I have no problems with fans discussing it without malice or overly speculatively. We all wish for him to be happy and supported, especially at difficult times.
