Came sealed in a package,

Girls and ladies I've fallen,
Dirk used me ungently,
dark things that vexed me,

A patch kit won't fix what I've seen...

Everybody now,

I'm Jenny the love doll
my vinyl has finally
given in to the sins of the flesh.
Sweet Jenny they called me,
before I was crusty, I was
so sweet and so free.
But now that's all over,
my life's a disaster.

Well, the 'so what' is that Jenny is not 'living' with Dirk, because she isn't alive.

Love is a complex thing.

I love my classic car. I love pasta (unfortunately). I still love (and to be pedantic, I'm still in love with) my late wife and I always will. None are or ever will be capable of loving me back. So, I don't find it terribly disturbing. A love doll isn't my thing (yet), so while I find it different, to each his (or her) own.

Why (mostly) men. My theory. A woman, no matter how unattractive, can get a guy if she wants one. He might be a bottom of the barrel ugly loser, but she can get someone. For guys, even a hooker can say no if they choose (and that's only sex, not love). You put 50 men and 50 women in a bar, and any woman who leaves alone leaves alone by choice. Guys, most who leave alone do so because they have no choice but to leave alone. Again, not love, but it's at least the seed that can let love bloom.

/ugly
//alone
///depressed and resigned to it rather than bitter.

The difference is you don't think your car is alive (do you?).

Coping mechanisms are one thing, but this guy is gradually losing his grip on reality.


You're making some awfully big assumptions about this guy.

For example, he could be speedily losing his grasp on reality.

Now, don't you feel bad?

[tetchy sigh]

Yes ok, I see the point you're making.

But are you honestly telling me you think this guy is totally fine (not necessarily sane, but thriving), and that this situation is healthy?


I'm on the fence. I choose to live alone because I find other people stifling, and a wake of crying, angry women haunt my past. I have no desire to fill that void with a large doll, but people have told me that I should be in therapy to deal with my "issue" of having no strong desire to live with someone or pursue relationships long enough to where that would be a thing.

I do think this could get really ugly when the doll's body starts truly breaking down, unclear how he'll deal with her "death".

But aside from all of that, he seems to be functioning in society. Must have a job, has a kid, has a normal past with women. I don't think any interdiction is needed.
