“It’s lovely but they often fight our battles for us and they don’t need to,” the beauty explained.
“I’m not reading the nasty comments, so you don’t need to either.”
“When we get told to kill ourselves, we’re fine with it,” Dom added. “You get used to it. But it’s not fair on the people who stick up for us.”

“I keep telling him that if he doesn’t have children now, he’s going to be this age when they leave school which means he won’t be able to retire and I put it all out on the time scale,” his girlfriend continued.
