[Update Nov 6]: It appears that a 65-year-old woman's ad seeking a partner has not worked its magic after all. The man pictured with divorcee Sompong Chomphupraphet in a photo on Facebook is just a fan, and not an 'unnamed new boyfriend' that had been previously reported.
According to Coconuts Bangkok, the people behind the Facebook page posted the clarification, and that Chomphupraphet is indeed still single.
A 65-year-old woman in Ubon Ratchathani's Pibul Mangsahan district, who put up a sign on her house's gate seeking a good, pensioner boyfriend, has quickly found a boyfriend, according to a Thai social media page.
The Facebook page "Me Dan Bok Duay Rayong" on Sunday posed a picture of divorcee Sompong Chomphupraphet and her unnamed new boyfriend to congratulate the couple.
Sompong's sign, which read "woman 65, needs boyfriend between 60-70 years old (widower), pensioner, who is good and sincere and has good health. Interested persons, please contact here," made headlines last week.
Sompong had said that she was once married to an Air Force officer, who fathered her two children.
After divorcing him, she married a German and stayed with him in Germany for 13 years. She returned to Thailand and lived alone and wanted to live with someone during the final days of her life.
