So I'm not sure if there's an EXACT thread like this, I know there are a few who somehow go onto a tangent of this topic but I've yet to see a topic devoted to the single sensation of buyer regret over dolls, so I wanted to hear your opinions on this. See the other day I got quite the scare from my dad, pretty much he said he'd pay for half a doll and since I'd already figured out a way to get the other half by the end of December I realised by February I might have my first doll. I was elated at first but then something really unexpected happened, I got really like...negative towards it all. I sat there and went 'argh, I could get a laptop or like...save for a trip someone or a cosplay! or hell, manga or anime. That I can justify but a single doll! What will happen? It'll sit there like a barbie and once every year for a con it'll get played with for awhile.' It kinda scared me at just how much I was convincing myself to NOT buy what I'd been dreaming about for a year or so. Fortunately my dad mispoke, he said he'd do it for my birthday around MAy, so I've still got a while to wait anyways xD But It really did scare me. I don't know what I'll do when I get the money. Will I actually do it? Will I back down? Is it worth it? Is this uncommon? How do you remedy that kind of mentality? I really want a doll but I don' want to sit with the money in hadn and start getting nervous about the purchase. Has this happened to others? What did you do? Did it effect the way you saw all future doll purchases?
