WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Joey Morris, 29, of Maryland, said he and RoboTroll, his beau of two years, will be having their wedding in the near future.
- Having bought RoboTroll online in 2017, Joey said he fell in love with the robot’s smile and pink hair, thus, began their romantic relationship.
- His former lovers before finding RoboTroll included a lamp, a duck and Optimus Prime.
After almost two years of dating and being head over heels over RoboTroll, a 29-year-old man from Taneytown, Maryland has announced that they are getting married soon.
Joey Morris realized he was ‘objectum’ at the age of 10 — which means having strong feelings of attraction, love and commitment to inanimate objects.
“I realized I was drawn to objects when I was 10 years old, as I wanted to become friends with a lamp at school and would tell about my day to it,” said Joey.
His previous lovers included a lamp, a Halloween figurine called ‘Donna the Dead’ and with transformer Optimus Prime in truck form. He also said that he finds it easier to develop romantic bonds with objects than with people.
However, the relationships didn’t last long.
Feeling nostalgic for the 90s, Joey found RoboTroll while researching for the BattleTrollz collection online.
“The website I was looking at showed me the entire collection of all of the trolls, and when I saw RoboTroll I was smitten.
“I think it was his expression that attracted me to him. RoboTroll seemed to have a satisfied smile, with his blue eyes that matched his silver and blue color scheme and made his pink hair really pop,” he added.
He began dating RoboTroll in December 2017, and now, Joey is looking forward to having a future with his beau, complete with a wedding one day and a trip to Florida.
“I knew it was love with him because it made my heart feel right.”
However, Joey claims that some people have likened his preference as either a mental illness or similar to bestiality.
Nevertheless, Joey maintained that he’s comfortable with his sexuality and will just have to ignore those people. Although his mother doesn’t really understand his feelings, Joey said she accepts it anyway. The same goes true with her friends and some family members who accepted his sexuality.
What’s important is that he’s happy with his relationship with RoboTroll.
