Skip to comments.The Man With 6,000 Barbies Canít Get A Date Because Women Feel Competitive With His Dolls
Posted on 09/06/2013 7:28:15 PM PDT by Rebelbase
ian Yang, a 33-year-old man from Singapore has one of the largest private collections of Barbie Dolls in the world. This self-described toy nerd has dedicated the last 20 years of his life collecting 6,000 Barbies, Bratz Girls, Monster High dolls, Care Bears and Jem and the Holograms action figures valued at nearly half a million dollars.
So why is he single? Because most eligible ladies I know would be JUMPING at the chance to date a man who spends all of his disposable income on toys. Most of us would be frothing at the mouth to get up in Jians pad and check out his prized Great Shape Barbie from 1984. Its not him, its us. According to Jian, women are just all so threatened by how sexy his dolls are: Ive also got the ex-girlfriends who get insecure about this kind of stuff. You get the [text messages] about the unresolved relationships that go I will never be one of these. Ya know? Whats my waistline? They look at dolls and go OK, thats the competition, which is quite troubling but its a reality.
I hope I can speak for all womankind when I say that Ive never felt competitive with a Barbie doll. I think Jian might be deluding himself. But after all, he is a man amongst dolls. [Reuters]
2. It ain’t the dolls that keep women away
3. it’s the freak
Maybe he should just come out of the closet. might help his dating problem.
If I think about this any more I will have nightmares.
Funny. I worked for a gentleman in Chicago who collected Ken dolls. He had a whole room dedicated to them. He thought it was funny how “gay” most of them looked.
He had an attractive girlfriend and didn’t seem gay to me (I’m a poor judge on the closet ones). He tried to get in to the U.S. Navy after 9/11, but I think he was too old and didn’t really possess any skills the navy needed, though the cruise would have been more fun with all those ken dolls.
I think he can’t get a date with women because he swings the other way, Barbie dolls aint GI Joe!
Them’s Barbie action figures dammit.
Maybe they’re creeped out by all those dolls. I know I would be.
Sounds like a fag to me. Maybe that’s the real problem.
Look on the bright side: It is a LOT cheaper to collect 6000 dolls than it is to marry one.
I read on another website that somebody has come up with these super-realistic sex dolls that look, feel and smell just like a beautiful woman. Except they can’t move or speak, and they cost about as much as a Lexus. If every man could afford one of those things, then the human race would be extinct in about a year.
put them in fatigues and give them a rifle and he has his own Amazon Battalion to play with
Yep, you can sell the dolls if you want to get rid of them.
. . . and they won’t take half your stuff when you do.
He probably likes dressing up as a Amazon, Golden Lasso, Tiara and matching bracelets, all the while singing “ I feel pretty, oh so pretty...”
He must be a Brony.
Toy Story sequel potential.
“Toy Story sequel potential.”
Woody gets eponymous?
I’d lay a mile of commo wire, just to hear her....
rumor has it that hes had offers.to buy the whole collection...from some huy kim jing UN in North Korea
yeah, everyone wants what they don’t have.
Its not the dolls dude, its you, its kinda creepy.
Imagine the cat fights (Or the mud wrestling, or..).
$10 on the Bratz Girls. I don't think the Care Bears would make it out alive, though.
Freak is right! I wonder how many of his little dolly gal pals he has welded to the pillows since he started....
Special contacts and a LOT of knife work
A man with all these dolls would leave a gal visualizing a shallow grave wrapped in plastic. That might be the real problem for him. Acting like a serial killer can crimp a dudes love life.
I would be very happy with just one, namely, Denise Richards, who looks more like Barbie than Barbie.
Pedophile sounds more likely.
Maybe a serial killer. (I watch too much ID TV)
You’re $hitting me, right? The dude is a California fruitcake. I don’t care where he lives.
Probably has the personality of a snail.
Her voice doesn't excite me ... she LOOKS like her voice should be sweet but she sounds more contralto imo.
Yup. It’s the dolls. Couldn’t be that your are a frakin’ weirdo.
Yup. It’s the dolls. All of the beautiful single women would be beating a path to your door. But they won’t. Because of the dolls.
Yup. It’s definitely the dolls.
Yeah, but her fingers and toes move. Creepy stuff, right there.
“If every man could afford one of those things, then the human race would be extinct in about a year.”
Nah, you are forgetting the principles of capitalism: competition is healthy. Women have had a monopoly for so long, they have little incentive to provide much “customer service”. If they had to compete with sex dolls for men’s attention, they would be sure to step up their game and start providing things that the dolls can’t.
A grown man collecting dolls?! Quite disturbing!
This has got to be the stupidest (most stupid?) thread I’ve ever seen.
It’s supposed to be stupid. That’s the point. A break from all the gloom & doom politics.
When I was a kid I had Barbie dolls, like most little girls. And I never liked Ken, so I talked mom into buying me a GI Joe instead. Back in those days he was an inch taller than Ken, has flexible arms, legs and fingers, and came with cool weapons. And that trademark scar on his cheek. No matter what color GI Joes came in, they all had that scar. I thought that was awesome. They made Ken look like a wimpy little fruit. I think Barbie would agree.
I would so hit that.
WAY too freaky......
In case you are wondering, 3600 Singapore dollars is USD 2825.
Barbie’s creator was Ruth Handler(1916-2002)
The documentary was called Barbie Nation: An Unauthorized Tour.
At least they’re not lifesize, “inflatable party dolls”.
