A woman claims she’s been in a five year relationship with an aeroplane and insists she wants to marry it!
Michele Köbke (30), from Berlin in Germany, considers herself in a relationship with the Boeing 737-800 passenger jet and even refers to it as “darling”.
The 30-year-old claims she’s in love with the aircraft and that she can’t get enough of it, Sun UK reports.
“The 737-800 is very attractive and sexy to me. He’s the most beautifully built, and he’s a very attractive and elegant aircraft,” she said.
However, Michele admitted that being in a relationship with the flying machine can be quite difficult at times.
“I can only get close to him when I fly with him or when I can get to him in the hangar, which has only happened once in my life,” she revealed.
“I want to marry my sweetheart and live with him in a hangar – it’s just a special kind of love that doesn’t hurt anybody.”
Michele realised she had a weakness for aeroplanes when she took her first flight in 2013, Mirror UK reports.
The following year she boarded her first 737-800 and it was love at first sight, Malay Mail reports.
“I got so excited with boarding the plane, I realised I am in love with the 737-800,” she said.
“My cheeks hurt from smiling, I’m the happiest woman in the world – when I’m with him I have everything I need."
According to experts, Michele suffers from objectophilia – a condition in which a person has a sexual or romantic attraction to inanimate objects.
