22-year-old British 'Barbie doll' says no man wants to date her

News flash: Not every one thinks dolls are perfect. Hannah Gregory is a 22-year-old student at the University of Sheffield in the UK.

According to Acidcow, she says she likes to dress up like a living Barbie doll because regular clothes make her anxious.

However, she also says that her looks are destroying her love life.

Men apparently refuse to date her because they are either afraid, intimidated or embarrassed by her looks.

She has a tiny 22-inch waist and even wears contact lenses that mimic the wide-eyed doll's stare. 

Mirror reports that Hannah's walking-talking doll looks have amassed her thousands of online followers, but she says her striking appearance and Barbie-inspired outfits have garnered her abuse and criticism.

Hannah says passers-by make rude comments in the street and her looks even make her family uncomfortable.

The Sheffield University Student says: "When I leave the house, people laugh and shout rude comments at me.

"My family don't like to go out with me because they hate seeing people being mean to me in public.

"It's hard to find a boyfriend too. Often, guys will become infatuated with my appearance and tell me how much they like me.

"But they're not interested in getting to know my personality - they just see me as a doll.

"But the abuse doesn't bother me, I feel happy and cute as a doll. And when people yell 'Barbie' at me on the street, I take it as a compliment! I'm proud to be called a human Barbie."
