For those of you who religiously follow Perrette, you may be aware that she has an imaginary boyfriend (who comes to her in vivid dreams on various occasions). As for his identity: he is a smokin’ hot firefighter named Adam. Adam, until recently, was only a figment of Perrette’s imagination. 

On 07/26, Perrette announced on Twitter:

“CRAZY! Y’all know I have my imaginary firefighter boyfriend Adam who visits me in my dreams every night, but I met a REAL firefighter who looks like Adam and my heart FELL OUT OF MY CHEST! I got flustered! That’s never happened to me! I’m celibate and don’t want a man. But WHOA! 

He’s too young for me but I thought I was going to throw up it was so magic!  It’s like my dream man showed up in person. Freaked me out!!! But I’m no ones girlfriend. I’m a solo act, but WHOA! Insta LOVE! Crazy! I couldn’t breathe! He’s my guy! (But I don’t do that).”

Perrette has chosen a celibate lifestyle – remaining single and abstaining from sexual relationships by choice. However, the firefighter from her dreams – who has suddenly materialized into existence – clearly got her all fired up. While fans wait to discover who the real-life Adam is, it’s unlikely that Perrette will drop a name; that is, if she managed to snag a first and a last during her brief and shocking encounter.

Though Pauley Perrette remains single today, she has admitted that, earlier in life, she was too “boy crazy.” She has been linked to a couple of different men in her lifetime. 

Inside former ‘NCIS’ star Pauley Perrette’s previous relationships

From 2000 – 2006, Pauley Perrette was married to Coyote Shivers. Shivers is a Canadian musician and actor known for the albums ½ A Rock and Roll Record and Give It To Ya. Twice. He also starred in Johnny Mnemonic, Empire Records, Smut, and Girl in 3D. 

Perrette and Shivers separated in 2004 and obtained a divorce in 2006. Shivers’ previous wife, Bebe Buell, ex-girlfriend Angela Garber, and Pauley Perrette all alleged that the actor/singer was physically, sexually, and psychologically abusive. 

Pauley Perrette engaged cameraman Michael Bosman in 2008; however, the two were never formally married, and Perrette revealed that she was engaged to British Royal Marine Thomas Arklie in 2011. It is unclear exactly when Arklie and Perrette split because they promised not to wed until Proposition 8 – prohibited gay couples to marry in California – ended.

When it comes to Perrette, she has been involved seriously with two men in the business – one behind the screen, one in front of it – and a British Royal Marine. However, according to Perrette, you won’t be seeing any new men entering her life (outside the fictitious Adam, and his real-life counterpart) anytime soon.
