Do you think that calling a doll a loved one is a weird idea?
There are people in the world that fall in love with life dolls. Do you think it is odd that someone can fall in love with something that does not breath?
Yes; even though we say such things as a matter of metaphor, e.g I fell in love with their onion soup. Realistically however, it cannot be considered an act of sanity to project such an emotion on an object that is incapable of reciprocating.
I recently read a story in a magazine about a guy that calls his life sized doll his wife. He often buys her new clothes and said they just sit at home watching TV together etc. I found it slightly odd but he's not harming anyone. Each to their own.
I sure do. I can't imagine that kind of problem. I would imagine such people are avoiding real life and real people.
personally i think it is beyond wierd. it's delusional to me and that's my honest answer.
I can definitely say that I love certain objects, but my only loved ones are live human beings and animals!
It does seem odd that a person could fall in love with an inanimate object rather than another human being; people who say they love dolls and other objects may have deep-seated issues with personal relationships and shouldn't be ridiculed.
It's completely different to seeing a pair of shoes for instance and thinking "I love those shoes" which happens to me all the time!
I certainly do. "Love" for an object is much different than the love one feels for a fellow human being.
Yes it is odd. But it seems to me like these people either may be very lonely and/or they have other issues such as emotional problems. Although odd, it is also very sad.
It's similar to the women who buy "life-like" baby dolls and push them around in a stroller in public, as if they were real. I feel like it's possible, but not healthy.
No, i dont think so. I have a teddybear at hope that ive had from i was wee that i adore. I adore it because your teddy or doll or whatever is the only one who listens to you without sending any negativity back , it isnt selfish or unkind, it doesnt think your stupid or over reacting, it simply is there. And that to me and clearly to you, is enough.
It is a bit on the odd side to call a simple material possession a "loved one." It's not like it's going to be with you in the next life.
However, there is nothing wrong with cherishing a certain item if it carries a few memories you don't wish to forget.
Yes, unfortunately. But people like those, are in most cases ill, or psychic cases. Not born like that. In most cases they were molested as childrens or in early adolescence. Psychiatric study proved this. Many of them are abused by theres family member, so they mistrust and close there selfs emotionally, or attach thereselfs to toys, as in this case doll.
Odd??? It's hard to believe such a question would be asked, but these are the times in which we live. The Bible says there's nothing new under the sun so such perversion has always existed. I agree with sinisa_sina. All I have ever known who do this have been abused and have a warped understanding of human love. I have also never known it to not include sexual acts which is why I use the word "perversion." There can be no replacement for the love human beings were meant to have for one another. God makes it all clear in his Word.

Today is my mother's birthday. Last year we celebrated her 84th birthday, and then four days later, she went on to celebrate Christmas in Heaven. The song on the radio that was playing when my brother heard of her death was, "It is too cold out for angels to fly" ... I am sure...
