The rules of attraction are mysterious indeed. Take Dave, for example, the 27-year-old who is completely in love with balloons.

At first glance, Dave would be a blatant balloon bigamist, rubbing his belly against a parade of balloons of varying shapes and colors. But, according to Dave, the situation is not as it appears. The Little Rock, Arkansas resident views his balloons as children, not romantic partners.

“Some people think I might be doing something else with them, but not true at all,” Dave insists. “I am pure in my life, and I keep the balloons the same way.”

Oh, well, then this is much less creepy. These are “children” he is fondling and sleeping with at night. Big sigh of relief.
