I have recently been having a suspicion about my desire to purchase a doll that costs more than either of my gaming consoles did. I am in my mid 20's, female, and not in a committed relationship. I notice that the dolls I am most interested in are child like tinies. Like Brownies or Pukis. SD dolls that look like grown men are not as attractive to me. I'm not concerned about whether the doll is male or female, or whether the doll is made of resin. I'm only concerned that it looks like a cute little person. I think the reason I'm interested in these dolls, subconsciously, is that my biological clock has gone off. I have no interest in having children, and I'm pretty sure I never will, but I'm fairly certain that's where this is coming from. Maybe I'm just lonely and I want someone to depend on me. I have lots of friends my own age and go on dates and things. I'm not weird, I think. I just feel a gap in my life. 50 years ago, women my age would mostly be married and have at least one child. 100 years ago, women my age would be married and have several children. So, the question is, do you think part of the attraction of dolls is filling the mother child gap?
