Hello! I don't know if this is too off-topic, or if it's been done already. So mods, if you need to, please delete or move this thread. I was thinking about something lately, and I wanted to post this to see if anyone has had the same experience. I live in a very small area, and I don't know anyone here who owns BJDs. A while ago, I found a group for my state, and I posted in multiple forums in that group to see if there was anyone near me/would like to meet. I unfortunately didn't get any replies. I also found a couple of individuals who actually live within driving distance, and nervously sent an email, but no replies either. I don't want to be that creepy person sending random people emails, but I really would like to meet more in the hobby. And since I haven't received a response from anyone in the state yet, I am having trouble finding my place in a BJD group My overall questions are: 1. Have you every tried to join a BJD Meet-up group? 2. If so, was it easy or hard? Was it a challenge getting replies? 3. When you finally did become a member of the group in question, was it easy to mesh with them or was it hard? I am fairly new to the hobby, so I wasn't sure whether anyone would have interest in this subject or not. Thank you all for reading and your consideration!
