Definitiongay parlance, a person who goes from one tragic love affair to the next, especially one who delights in his misfortune, based on the character played by Greta Garbo in the movie of the same name.
Quote: Marguerite Gautier (Greta Garbo) to Armand Duval (Robert Taylor) in Camille (1936):
(1) ' I've loved you as much as I could love. If that wasn't enough I'm not to blame. We don't make our own hearts.'
(2) ' Let me love you, let me live for you, but don't let me ask anymore from Heaven than that. God might get angry.'
