"My love for her cannot be changed": Teenager says she'll marry her zombie doll next month
Felicity Kadlec believes there's nothing wrong about dating her doll as she believes she will marry her one day.
A teenage girl from Massachusetts has claimed that she's found love in a zombie doll and that's not just it. She's all set to get married to it! 19-year-old Felicity Kadlec says that Kelly (the zombie doll, whose name she has got tattoed on her arm) was given to her as a gift when she 13. In a shocking revelation, Felicity said that she has been dating her doll for three years and that the two have a 'normal' and 'intimate' relationship. Felicity says what she has with Kelly is a 'genuine connection.'
However, she believes that other people find it hard to understand the relationship that they share. Speaking about her relationship with Kelly, Felicity said: "I found Kelly on a creepy doll collection website, and I was gifted her when I was 13. But it wasn't until I was 16-years-old that I started to get feelings for her, but it was something that I kept on trying to deny," Dailymail reported her saying.
She further added, "I have had boyfriends in the past, and I always thought that I was in love with them - but they never made me feel the way I do now. We have a normal, intimate relationship which is progressing in the normal way - and we are getting married in September."
Felicity explains that initially, she tried to convince herself that the feelings she had for the doll were wrong but eventually came to terms with her feelings: "Our relationship was on and off since I was 16 because I would tell myself that it was wrong and break it off." She also said: "But over the past year I have really come to terms with my feelings for her, and I know that my love for her cannot be changed."
In order to express her love for Kelly, Felicity even got her name tattooed. "I got her name tattooed on my arm in the spring because she's always going to be a part of my heart - she is a part of me, and no one can change that," she said. "I am intimate with Kelly - I caress her and feel safe with her, and I feel a genuine connection when I'm having an intimate moment with her." Felicity has even picked out the ring for their September wedding.
"Myself and Kelly are now set to get married in September, as it's the same month as our birthdays, and I have even bought the rings already," she said. While Felicity might believe in their love, she claims that many of her friends and family are not too happy about it. "I get a lot of different opinions about Kelly and I's relationship - but I expect that," she said. Felicity believes that the bond she shares with Kelly cannot be replaced and no human can fill that.
Despite this, she is not allowed to take Kelly outside when she goes with her family because they fear people will say something. "I know there are some people out there who think I should be with a real human, but to me Kelly is real," she said. "I do even receive criticism from my friends, and family - if we go out with them they won't let me bring Kelly with me. If we go for food she always has to stay inside the car because people will stare at her, so we've never been able to have a date in public." She added, "But regardless of what other people think about our relationship, she makes me happy, and I love her, so that's all that matters."
