“I am in love with the Golden Gate Bridge”

>Married to the Eiffel Tower is a revelatory documentary about three women who deeply and passionately love inanimate objects. They carry on full-fledged emotionally mature relationships with these objects, falling in love, breaking up, sometimes getting back together again. They believe the objects love them back — these are fully reciprocal emotional bonds.

It reminded me in some ways of the BBC documentary on men who love RealDolls, Guys and Dolls. Both the women profiled in Married as well as the men in Guys and Dolls have an awareness that the objects of their affection are — objects. But they are unflinchingly honest about their emotional attachments.

Definitely worth a look, especially in the context of creating emotional bonds between humans and simulations.
