I always hear that dolls are for lonely, antisocial people. i mean.. i get lonely.. i dont get to see my friends much. and im homeschooled.. but i'm _NOT_ antisocial. i have many friends that i WISH i could see more often. so.. whats your opinion.. i have a hard time getting along with most people.. and i dont THINK i subconsciously decided to collect dolls to help me not be lonely.. do you think dolls can really help lonely people? that's my main question. since i'm not antisocial or anything EDIT- wow all your answers are so very different my friends, my GOOD friends, either love my dolls, or atleast, dont think its weird that i have one i mean i go to meet ups and stuff, its just that before i got my first doll, i was antisocial, i didnt like many people.. at all. lol but now that i have one.. i dunno .. i seem to be more social.. its weird. but i am pretty sure.. . its mostly because i now have a great form of creative release, and self expression NOT just because their like a companion. ya know? EDIT - AGAIN so.. do we all agree? as the final verdict, that dolls are not intended for the lonely, they MAY help some lonely people. or make some worse, everyone has some form of expression. and its allllllll good.
