Sorry if a topic like this already exists! There are lots of threads about negative reactions to dolls and people saying derogatory things about their cost and how they look and their "creepiness," but has anyone ever had surprisingly positive reactions to their dolls? I ask because this past Thursday when my Hugo-N arrived at work (I always have really important packages sent to work!), I had so many positive reactions to him--from both men and women! In fact, no one said anything mean about him at all! There were a few people I specifically sought out in order to show him to them because they had shown interest in Athene (my CP NS Lishe) when she had arrived earlier in the year, but on my way to visit them, several people stopped me to ask me questions and were just curious in general--even grown men! And a lot of people who didn't stop to ask questions smiled as I walked by with him! The same thing happened with Athene--many people stopped to ask me about her and learn, rather than say disparaging things, and several people smiled! And, a friend who had been very negative about my dolls (BJDs, Pullips, etc.) a few years ago has now started to appreciate them and even like them!
