How do you feel about this?

(submitted for scrutiny by one P. Clark)

I find interesting the ubiquitous assumption that single people (namely boys) who do weird shit like buy inanimate girlfriends are "people who are so scared to get hurt that they subconsciously choose relationships in which they won't be." That is, this article implies that people who are single have chosen to be so, as though it is always a matter of volition, and anyone who is single is simply eschewing the "endless string" of partners waiting just outside the door.

Maybe it's not the case that "some dudes would rather have an expensive doll than try to have a relationship with a person" so much as they can't have a relationship with a person because no one likes them.

Am I wrong?

part of the point is theyre scared to try.
they could at least try internet dating! freaks find freaks on the net all the time!!

but part of the issue with the dolls and virtual fetish stuff i think is about the desire. they would rather just have the fake stuff because they think it's hotter. i'm just more of a turn on to them. i dont think it's always about "being afraid" or even not being able to find someone.
