A British woman has declared her love — for a lamp.
Amanda Liberty, 33, says she’ll soon marry a chandelier she bought online — and she confesses she “kisses and cuddles” the antique, 57 years her senior, The Sun in Britain reports.
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.”
Liberty said a friend “actually named her Lumiere because of the film ‘Beauty and The Beast,’ after the candlestick who comes alive.”
The Daily Mail, as it always does, got to the gross part, saying Liberty described the reunion as “sexually and emotionally fulfilling.”
Amanda suffers from an unusual condition called objectum sexuality, whereby she falls in love with inanimate objects instead of people.
Talking to British newspaper, The Sun, Amanda said it seemed there was lightning between her and “Libby” on her latest visit.
“I was overwhelmed with emotional and sexual excitement. When I saw her I almost cried,” she said.
“Libby satisfies my lovemaking needs,” Amanda added.
