My husband has always enjoyed collecting but in the last couple of years he has started to collect dolls. It has more or less become a fascination, and I have to say that it worries me a bit. He does not only collect dolls, he collects dolls’ clothes as well. I am not sure why this has become such a fascination but he says that dolls he collects, will one day become very valuable. Be that as it may, I still find this hobby very strange and I wish he would not carry on collecting dolls. After all, he is a grown man, and I find the entire idea rather absurd, but then again, I suppose that it is not doing any harm. Many of our friends find it a bit odd, and I think this is what bothers me more than anything. People from Wandsworth escorts from https://charlotteaction.org/wandsworth-escorts/ think the dolls belong to me, but I always have to explain that they belong to my husband.
Why do we collect things, and why does Nick collect dolls?
We all seem to have a desire and need to collect things. Some people collect teddy bears, but what is going on when we start to collect unusual things. Men and women are both the same, and some become niche collectors. To be honest, I find that some niche collectors are a bit odd, and my friend Nick has always “spooked” me a bit with his doll collections. Nick does not only collect small dolls, he collects life size ones as well, and that really freaks me out. They actually sit on his sofa! Which Wandsworth escorts say is very strange.
It is not like Nick talks to his dolls but he will come in and say hello to his larger ones. At first, I found it really difficult to deal with and I did not like going around his house. He is a member of my husband’s golf club, so every so often we go around to his house for drinks. His larger dolls sit on chairs in his living room, and even on the sofa, and I feel like they are actually watching me. I find it completely unnerving.
He has also dedicated a whole room in his house to what he calls his “cherished” doll collection. It is an even stranger place to enter for me, and I am sure that those dolls are watching everything that I do. My daughter does not find it creepy at all, and delights in telling me everything that she has learned about the dolls. The dolls are not pornographic; they are actually collectors’ dolls but I still find it a very strange hobby for a man in his 50’s. I cannot understand what Nick gets out of his very bizarre hobby. Some of the chaps at the golf club think it is weird as well, and cannot see how the same guy who can play a rather tough game of golf, is capable of collecting dolls.
