It takes all sorts to make the world go round (and not the bend!) I think it rather touching that he can feel this way towards what many people consider an inanimate object, but is the love reciprocated? I don't think so. It's a one way relationship, so to speak. My car is important to me and is a calming space to be in and I could say I love my car but it is not an emotional love. I don't think this man knows what love is.
