Ok, so I got my first doll, a B&G Freya, in February of '08. I loved her dearly and still do, and I freqently look back on the fond times we've had. I learned how to care for her, restring her, blush her, do face-ups, I got to discover her personality and spirit and watched her grow into a unique individual as I learned who she was. Then B&G decided to upgrade their bodies. I was bummed because I could not afford to to get the new body type for her. Then B&G rereleased Freya as a type two. The Type 2 mold was slightly different, namely the lips for easier face-ups, but much nicer looking. I wanted her. So I thought I would sell my old Freya and buy the new Freya. Well, I made arrangements with a friend who had been wanting a doll for some time but who hadn't had the opportunity to buy a doll. I thought this would be a win-win situation. She would get her doll and I would get the money I needed to buy the Type 2 Freya with the new body. Well, I boxed up my Freya in preparation for selling her to my friend, but I started to miss her immediately. I would look at the empty space on my printer (she would sit on my printer and watch me work on my computer) and feel sad. It felt strange not having my doll staring at me. That night, I actually cried. The next day when my friend came to pay for her and pick her up, I told her that I could not sell my doll. She thought I was being dorky, but in her own way understood and did not tease me about it. She said she was ok that I had backed out of the deal that she understood the bond I had with my doll and that she would just get another doll some other time. Hubby even understood and said I could still buy the new Freya if I really wanted her. How awesome is that?! So, has anyone else had a situation like this? I mean, has anyone else backed out of a sale because they could not part with their doll(s) or had separation anxiety when spending time away from their doll(s)? Am I strange for not being able to let my doll go even thought I am replacing her with the same model?
