Say wut? 33-year-old woman engaged to a chandelier

A whole lotta crazy here.

From NY Post: A British woman plans to marry a chandelier she bought online — and admits she’s hooked on “kisses and cuddles” with the dusty antique.

Amanda Liberty, 33, isn’t fazed by the whopping 57 year age gap between her and the tarnished light fitting, who she has dubbed “Lumiere.”

Speaking of her wife-to-be, who she spent over $500 shipping over from Europe in 2016, she said: “As soon as I saw Lumiere on eBay, I knew immediately that she was the one for me and it was love at first sight. She was based in Germany and although I knew it would be tricky to get her home, I knew I needed to find a way to make her mine. I couldn’t stop thinking about her and how beautiful she was — she has such a beautiful shape and I could feel really amazing energy coming from her.

After winning the online auction, Liberty patiently waited for her to turn up at her Leeds home, turning to her 24 other chandeliers, who she claims she was in an “open relationship” with before meeting Lumiere.

She said: “After buying the chandelier, I patiently waited for her to be imported into the UK and after six days of waiting, she was finally in my arms. She had been disassembled for her own safety, but once I put all her pieces together and she settled into her new home, our relationship just went from strength to strength.”

“A friend of mine actually named her Lumiere because of the film “Beauty and The Beast,” after the candlestick who comes alive.”

Last Valentine’s Day I proposed to her, to signify our long lasting love. I hope at some point we will have a commitment ceremony — I haven’t been engaged before so it’s very new and exciting!”

Perhaps due to Lumiere’s age, Amanda doesn’t take her to bed every night, preferring to snuggle up with another of her fancy light shades called “Jewel” under the covers.

Liberty said: “None of my chandeliers are jealous of each other, they understand that I love them all for all of their different personalities. For example, I love kissing and cuddling Lumiere, but I sleep with Jewel every night, as she is portable and very nice to cuddle.”

“I’ve always loved the look of chandeliers and when I saw my first chandelier, Luna, it was love at first sight. You can’t control who you fall in love with and things just went from there.

“I spend my spare time restoring old and broken chandeliers to their former glory, which I really enjoy as I can tell that they enjoy the attention that they receive. My dream job would be to work in public buildings such as Buckingham Palace, looking after the grand chandeliers that they have there.”

But it hasn’t always been a light touch that Liberty has craved. As an Objectum Sexual, someone who is sexually attracted to inanimate objects, all sorts of bits and bobs have caught her eye.

Her first relationship was with a drum kit when she was just 14, but as she grew older her tastes developed — and she soon had her eyes on bigger sights.

Liberty fell in love with the Statue of Liberty — who she affectionately calls “Libby” — and has traveled to the US six times to gaze longingly at the 305-foot tall monument. In 2010 she even changed her surname by deed poll to “Liberty” to show her commitment to the 142-year-old statue.

However, Liberty struggled to have a long distance relationship with the green woman, who has an eight-foot-long face and she turned to her chandeliers for comfort. Her living room is adorned with memorabilia dedicated to the monument and she insists that she still loves Libby.

Liberty said: “People often can’t understand that this is just a natural orientation for me, that I can find the beauty in objects and can sense their energy. I want others to see how happy the chandeliers make me and how much they’ve enriched my life. I’m not hurting anyone by entering into a relationship with them, I am simply just following my heart.

Woman, 45, claims she is ‘married’ to a train station

Carol and her “wife,” the train station.

Hey, #LoveIsLove, or something like that…

From Daily Mail: A woman has ‘married’ a train station and claims they have spent 36 years in love with one another. Carol Santa Fe, 45, from San Diego, California, says she fell for Santa Fe train station when she was nine years old. Although the union is not legally binding, she ‘tied the knot’ with the building in 2015 – and celebrated their one year anniversary last Christmas.

Ms. Santa Fe says she has ‘sex’ with the station mentally and identifies herself as an objectum sexual – a person who is sexually attracted to inanimate objects and structures.

It is a worldwide debate whether the phenomenon is a sexuality, fetish or mental condition.

Ms. Santa Fe said: ‘I am married to the Santa Fe train station – her name is Daidra. We didn’t start a relationship until 2011 but I had been in love with the station since I was a young girl. When we got married, I stood there and I told her that I take it as my partner. It was the happiest day of our lives.

Every day the volunteer support worker takes a 45 minute bus ride to the station to spend time with the building. She said: ‘When I get there I say hello to her – I then walk around the block circling around her, trying not to let anyone notice I am talking. There is a private bit where two walls meet, I go there to touch her, which I do by leaning against her with my clothes on. When I’m touching her, I feel as though it actually holds me and kisses me.’

‘I don’t have physical sex with the station in public, I want to be respectful. I wouldn’t do that with a human in public so why would I do it in this case. I do have sex with Daidra in my mind when I stand there. I especially like when I hear the trains rev up their engines – it turns me on.’

Ms. Santa Fe – who has lived in California since she was three – claims the train station is the love of her life despite being in a previous relationship with a man.

She added: ‘I loved a human once before, his name was Tom and we were together for 18 months. But it didn’t work out and I felt amazing when I got into a relationship with Diadra because she told that she would never leave me. I love her so much, she is so romantic.’

‘We first consummated our love a few years ago when I felt the wall behind me, and I felt this energy. I came close to an orgasm and I was scared I’d get caught by the station staff. I don’t ever want the security guards to find out – I am a closeted objectum sexual.’

Ms. Santa Fe discovered she was an objectum sexual after she searched online ‘I am in love with a building’.

She is not the first to confess her love for inanimate objects. Erica Eiffel, an objectum sexual, famously married Paris’s Eiffel Tower in 2007. Another well-known objectum sexual is Eklöf Berliner-Mauer, who married the Berlin wall in 1979 and was the first person to come forward with objectum sexuality.

Ms. Santa Fe hides her attraction while at the building because she fears she could be banned from the site. She added: ‘It’s not at all because I am ashamed. Erica Eiffel got banned from the Eiffel Tower for kissing it and straddling it – so I don’t want to get banned like she did. I don’t like to publicly show anything between me and Daidra as I have more respect than that.’

Carol has been working as a volunteer for emotional support groups for years.

Carol said: ‘Objectum sexuality is not a mental illness like the media always makes out. It is our sexuality, just like being lesbian or bisexual – we are not crazy. People just don’t understand. I feel really lonely not having anyone to talk to about it.’

Daidra has been the most stable partner I have ever had. I have had the time of my life being her wife. I used to be scared of being in love with humans, but I’m not scared with Daidra. I can never leave San Diego, because my lover is here. I could never love another train station – she is the one.’
