I’m definitely a revolving door. I’m a roleplayer as well, with characters I’ve had for 10+ years. I’ve been in this hobby since I was 14, so over the years different characters have taken the spotlight. I still have the characters, just no doll shell for them because I don’t have the space. It’s also taken me SO many years to find what I’m looking for. This hobby has so many doll choices, you don’t always find the right doll your first try. I spent a lot of time on frustrating hybrids because I never found the exact thing I wanted, then lo and behold the perfect doll is released years later. It’s taken me 17 years to FINALLY know what I want, to finally have the funds not to settle. Now I feel comfortable in this hobby because I’m not trying to fit a round peg in a square hole. I wish I knew what I wanted years ago but my old dolls found loving homes here on DoA. As for bonding, I’ve never felt an emotional attachment to my dolls. They’re beautiful and it brings me fulfillment and joy to make them look like my characters but at the end of the day they’re my collectibles, I’ve never felt sad selling a doll.
