Women 'dating ghost' claims he's proposed and they're planning on having kids
While we've all heard many an unlikely love story, spiritual guidance counsellor Amethyst Realm, has taken the concept to the next level.
The 30-year-old hit the headlines earlier this year, after claiming to have met and fallen in love with a ghost on holiday, and now she's shared the story of how her unconventional lover popped the question.
Amethyst, who alleges to have slept with upwards of 20 ghouls, now appears to be settling down with one supernatural lover, after revealing that a ghost has asked for her hand in marriage.
Speaking to The Sun, the counsellor disclosed that her lover popped the question during a trip to the Wookey Hole caves in Somerset.
"I'd suggested a weekend away and we decided on Weston-super-Mare," she told the publication. "As soon as we got to the hotel, my lover told me he wanted to go to Wookey Hole. It’s nearly an hour from Weston, but he was insistent. Halfway through the tour, he told me he wanted to hang back from the group."
"That’s when it happened. There was no going down on one knee — he doesn’t have knees! But for the first time, I heard him speak."
Amethyst then went onto claim she heard the ghost say "will you marry me":
"It’s hard to explain but, until that point, his words were inside my head. But, on that day, the words were outside. I could actually hear his voice and it was beautiful. Deep, sexy and real."
The couple are now in the midst of planning their nuptials. She hopes to wear an amethyst ring, but ultimately wants her fiancée to make the final decision.
Their big day will consist of a traditional Page "handfasting" ceremony, where their hands will be tied together.
Amethyst does acknowledge that guests may find the wedding bizarre as her partner does not have a name, and she's not even 100 per cent certain that he's a man.
However, she does remain optimistic about their chances of conceiving a child. "I looked into it and I don’t think it’s totally out of the question. I’m sure there’s a way around that — I just haven’t worked it out yet," Amethyst explained to The Sun.
The 30-year-old has previously asserted that she believes that women who have so-called "phantom pregnancies" - which include symptoms such as nausea and a swollen abdomen - are actually a result of "ghost babies". These women's bodies are, purportedly, ultimately unable to cope with the paranormal pregnancy.
Amethyst also claims that ghosts are superior lovers to real life men. "Ghost lovers tend to be more sensual and adept than the average bloke," she said;
"There's always more of a connection, because the sex goes beyond physical. It's like any other kind of sex. The main difference is I just can't see them. I feel them though, their weight against me, their touch, the warmth and energy that just sinks into me."
Well, how's that for a scary story this Halloween?
