Fair enough. Once again, I have been put in my place. He is her boyfriend and it's her money and her life, so I need to shut up. Right?

Actually I think I was agreeing with you, and anyway I had no intention of putting anyone in his/her place; I'm sorry if my post came out this way...I just meant that we can have our opinions on life in general, but it is her life in the end.

Kisses

IMO he can be as sweet and nice as he likes (which he probably is), but he certainly doesn't have any pride. The question that should be asked is, would she have bought the place without him working there? i don't really think so. To me it seems like she has bought him, no matter that the restaurant is in her name. If he would be a decent and honarable guy, he would have looked for a job elsewhere, if she was so keen on buying the place and in his spare time he would have helped her out for nothing. The way things look from the outside is that she is buying love, even though she probably just means well and wants to help him on in life. IMO if he was only interested in her as a human being, he would have asked her to not buy the place. When you are first in love that might all not be the problem, but later when the hormones have settled in, things tend to look different. It would have been a different matter if they already had been together for a long time and then decide to build sth together. But to do sth like this in the beginning of a relationship does not seem to be smart to me.

as for him asking a bank for a loan, I don't think that he would have found any decent bank around here who would have given him the kind of money. A place like that costs about 1.5 to 2 million Euros ( plage mala is quite a posh place where a lot of people come by boat rather than to walk up and down all those stairs. )you might not have the number of clients you get in Larvotto, but most of them are high profile, so that puts up the value. I don't see how a 27 year old guy doing a summer job after university could have convinced any bank to give him that kind of money. Don't forget that he became chief of staff after Stephanie bought the place. Before he was just a waiter like you have them a lot in Monaco. And one who wasn't even trained in the field. So his qualifications for the job he is doing are the same as anyone else who answers an add for some waiting.

OF course they are both adults and can do what ever they like, but I have my doubts about the lasting of this relationship. But lets hope they both take the best out of it while it lasts.:)

he looks nice but that's kind of a dumb thing to say, since things aren't really what they seem. i mean, a person is so much more complex than looking "nice". how old is he?

About Stephanie, I am just now noticing from some comments michelle has made that she is quite a businesswoman. of course i remember the replay business, but for some reason, i always assumed that she sold it or merged it because she seemed to give up so much when she went on that road trip with franco the elephant trainer. she still owns it and runs it, though?

Well, to answer your question on Mathieu's age: He's 27. :)

As for the Replay: She closed the one in Monaco but still runs two businesses in Barcelona and Amsterdam. :)

Wow, he is the same age as me. Steph has herself a young one!
I wonder if the replay business was merged or partitioned off to an american company because i know i've seen a "replay cafe" here in los angeles. or maybe steph has contract deals where businesses can use the name, like a franchise, who knows. when she first started that replay thing, I remember thinking how clever the idea is. I was really impressed by the idea behind it.

The Replay-business is some kind of franchise-thing as far as I know, there are a lot of Replay Stores and Cafes all over the world.
