Actually, my husband asked me to post this thread. He is seriously afraid of dolls, something which is called pediophobia. The more realistic they are, the more creeped out he is. So of course I had to get into the BJD hobby, poor guy. He has quietly accepted my custom Monster High dolls sitting above the television. He is actively trying to ignore them, but he says things have improved since I put clothes on them. Even so, he's okay with me buying a 1/3 BJD. I have offered to keep the doll locked away in its box when he is around, but no. He says he will be okay and hopes he will get used to a little lady sitting near him. As long as he won't have to handle the doll. Haha, it's not like I'm going to force it on him. Side note: It's not like he has never 'wanted' to be near a BJD. A friend of ours has 7 BJD, of which he took a lot of pictures in the woods. Now, we were wondering how your significant other handles your BJD hobby. Are there more people uncomfortably living with dolls? Do you have to keep the dolls behind locked doors?
