Life with Tonyboy
It has been on the news that Gretchen Barretto’s affair
with billionaire Tonyboy Cojuangco is still going strong.
In spite of that, the “goddess” has been linked to several
So, what’s her type of man?
One source says that Gretchen likes older men better.
With that, anyone can deduce that she prefers someone
who can lavish her with comfort and care.
What She Thinks About Marriage
Once in an interview, Gretchen was caught saying that she is content with Tonyboy’s love for her.
The latter cannot offer marriage to her at this moment.
Tonyboy is still legally married to an equestrienne, Denise Yabut. That leaves Gretchen to just accept their relationship status right now.
It’s as if a wedding is not what they need as a couple right now. It can’t be denied, though, that she also dreams of marrying Cojuangco.
Walking down the aisle is every woman’s wish, anyway. Presently, Gretchen can only hope and pray for it.
Her Ideal Type of Man

So, what can her typical dating choice look like?
Drop by her Instagram account and you will arrive at a few guesses.
She can be seen with her partner, Tonyboy Cojuangco, (or with other socialite friends) frequenting the pricey hotels, bars and other upmarket social venues in Manila.
She is into top of the line fashion and so, you will not want to assume that she’ll settle for a date in an ordinary place.
What Her Fans Think About Her Lover
They say that the life of Gretchen Barretto is an open book.
She has friends who has always been supportive of her pursuits. She has a family who is not always happy about her decisions.
Look into some past news and you’ll get to know their roller coaster family feud. There may be fans who continue to adore her and her present beau, Tonyboy Cojuangco.
There may be some who have been bashing her. Well, you can’t blame them. Not everyone will applaud a live-in relationship.
