The Man With 6,000 Barbies Canít Get A Date Because Women Feel Competitive With His Dolls
The Frisky.com. Seriously. ^ | 9/3/13 | Ami Angelowicz

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 Jian’s pad and check out his prized “Great Shape” Barbie from 1984. It’s not him, it’s us. According to Jian, women are just all so threatened by how sexy his dolls are: ”I’ve 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? ‘What’s my waistline?’ …They look at dolls and go ‘OK, that’s the competition’, which is quite troubling but it’s a reality.”

I hope I can speak for all womankind when I say that I’ve never felt competitive with a Barbie doll. I think Jian might be deluding himself. But after all, he is a man amongst dolls. [Reuters]

I've long suspected my Chucky doll collection causes me the same problem.

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.

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.

Yep, you can sell the dolls if you want to get rid of them.

He probably likes dressing up as a Amazon, Golden Lasso, Tiara and matching bracelets, all the while singing “ I feel pretty, oh so pretty...”
