I know the question has been asked many times, as to how your friends and family feel about your hobby. I hope this question is a little different. Do you have friends who also collect dolls? If so, how do you relate to them? Do you have discussions about dolls; play together; make things together; etc.? My closest friend also has dolls, and one is a BJD. We get together and talk about dolls quite a bit. Since I have quite a few BJDs and she only has one, she is very interested in hearing all about my dolls, their stories, and my plans for them. Sometimes she brings her doll over to my house to "visit" my dolls, sort of like a play date. I LOVE being able to talk about dolls openly with someone in person like that. I have lots of online doll friends, but this is my only doll friend I see in person. The only issue that I have with my doll friend, is she wants to change my doll's stories, and she also wants to rename my dolls. This kind of irks me, but I don't show my annoyance, I just humor her. For example, I just got a head back from getting a faceup, and when she saw him she decided she didn't like the name I gave him, so she is calling him by another name. In my head I'm thinking she should get more dolls for herself and not try to change my dolls. What do you think?
