I didn't see a thread like this in the first few pages, so I figured I'd start it. I've been wondering, how much time passed since you guys first found about BJDs,to the time you finally gave in and ordered one? Also, for how long were you a doll-less DoA member? Were you an active member, despite your lack of dolls? I've known about them since 2006, I think. First site I came across was Luts. I was scared by the price, so I moved on. Went with Pullips instead, which I began collecting in 2008. And I've been a doll-less member of this forum for a few months now. Not too active, but I plan on changing that. I want to get a feel for the community, and try to make a few friends, before I dive in and start going to meets with my own doll 'n whatnot. So, what about everyone else?
