Look Who's Dating

 At night the park turns into a different type of playground.  It's not unusual to see couples making out.  One of our single ladies finally entered the dating scene.  She hasn't looked back.

Let's hope all the kiddies are home sleep. 

What! Stop the presses.  Jacquelyn has a man, now?

 Yes.  Everyone calls him Teddy.  They've been dating for about 3 months now.  Jacquelyn hasn't introduced him to the parents or her sisters yet.  Why, you ask?  

Because they met on-line.  Jacquelyn's not sure how her family will feel about that.  She also doesn't want any surprises, so she's trying to find out all she can to make sure he's legit.  It's nice to see her dating.  I hope it all works out for her.

I just bought this figure from MonkeyDepot.  He comes with gloved hands.  I swapped his hands with one of my other figures.  And in case you are wondering, action figures were never included in my 10 doll limit for the year.

  1. That is great that action figures are not part of your 10 count limit! Opens up many possibilities. Teddy is very nice looking. Hope he checks out. Can't be too careful with online dating!

    BTW, I also think that dolls purchased as body donors should not count toward your limit either!

    1. Phyllis - Yes there are way too many ladies here, so we have to limit any more of them entering town. A town can never have too many men! I have quite a few body donors already, and new dolls that enter have a better chance of getting in if they are already articulated.

  2. That's exciting news about Jacquelyn getting a man! I have friends who met and married someone they met online. And I agree with Phyllis, dolls purchased as body donors or only for their clothes should not count toward the limit. The limit should be reserved for dolls who will become residents/characters ; )

    1. Jewell - Online dating is so common now, I figured it was time it became part of Morristown. And crazies come from all over. Just look at your Walter.

  3. Meeting someone in person to begin with doesn't make them anymore trustworthy than someone you meet online. I don't know why people associate online meetings as overtly shady. As long as you meet eventually I have never understood the stigma. I met someone online and when it later became romantic my mom freaked out. She was all, "OMG you can't trust people online. They're a bunch of crazies!" The only thing I could think to say was, "Well, you realize they met ME online, right?" To which she countered, "But you're not crazy, you're my baby!"

    One reason they might not like Teddy is because he walks around with an open jacket with no shirt on underneath.

    1. Muff - I agree. Men in general are untrustworthy whether they are online or not. I've had good and bad experiences in both arenas. It's a great way to connect with people you would rarely ever meet in real life.

      As for Teddy being shirtless, he and Jacquelyn were chilling at her place and then decided to step out for some fresh air. Rather than get completely redressed, he opted for the jacket. They knew they weren't going to be out long. He will be properly attired when/if he meets the family.

    1. Ladonna - He probably won't be the bad boy in town. He may have some skeletons in his closet. The initial premise for my stories was to show the other side of brothers that the real media tends to overlook. So really bad brothers don't reside here. Like I said, I think he might have some issues, but we will have to wait and see.

  5. oh he's a great figure. I have begun the final descent into action figure he double toothpicks as I am addicted to the avengers and Ironman movies. I bought some bodies off of ebay and a robert downey jr. head and have had fun with him ever since. I have found a taller body thanks to Jatmanstories.com on her tutorial - it's on ebay and cotswold collectibles and works with the freakish tall FR2 ladies in our dioramas. I am hoping for some more action figures for my upcoming birthday, hoping hubby will oblige me! I so want another Tony and a bruce banner. lol I think they make better men for our girls than Ken, and the hommes, they look more real.

    1. Lisa - Yes, action figures open up a whole new world for our ladies. I love your Tony Stark. When I originally saw him on ebay, I considered adding him, but decided to show some restraint. I loved him in Ironman and they did a great job on his sculpt. I've seen Bruce Banner and he is well done, too. Good luck getting them.

  6. Teddy looks very intense. The vibe I'm getting isn't "gangster," though... he could as readily be contemplating what postmodern philosophers would say about his urge to commitment.

    Body donors definitely shouldn't count, as they don't increase the overall population.

    1. Smaller Places - He does have an intense look. Goodness only knows what he's contemplating. Jacquelyn is just happy they found each other.

  8. He is so handsome and intense, I tend to agree with Smaller Places, he's a bit "dangerous"!

  9. I didn't mean to strike up any controversy, because dating period is something to approach cautiously. I have had both good and bad experiences with online dating as well as meeting a new guy in a social setting. My rule has always been to never give the guy your address until you know him well. Meet only in public places or in group settings until you feel comfortable enough with him to know otherwise. Granted, it has been a very long time since I have dated at all, but I tell my daughters to proceed with caution. Unfortunately, there are a lot of predators out there online or otherwise! I once met a guy online who it turns out was using the internet to meet women for extra-marital affairs. Of course, I found this out before I had any kind of relationship with him.

    1. Phyllis - Oh I don't think your comments struck up any controversy. Although we like a little comment controversy at times. Online dating is one of those hot buttons at times. Some people will use it for bad, so you do have to be careful. A guy I met locally and have dated on and off for 14 yrs and who I considered to be one of my closest friends, just cheated on me and consistently lied about it, when I asked him about it. So like I said, most men will lie and cheat and sleep around. I think it's in their DNA. He was definitely one I never thought would do what he did the way he did it.

  10. Exclusions, eh? Hmmm... nice way to compromise this purchase. I like him. Too bad he comes with gloved hands. Were they easy to replace?

    1. DBG - No that action figure really wasn't a compromise. They were never included. I always have room for handsome guys around here. The gloved hands are very easy to replace. The replacement hands need to have a long skinny peg like the ones in the first link. Or you can buy hands and separate wrist pegs.

  11. I like the way your purchase count keeps becoming more and more creative! I think Teddy is cute. I would respond if he sent me a message online or hollered from across the street (just don't let my husband see this post).

    I am interested in this Asian headsculpt I found on Ebay, but I am so afraid I won't find the correct body that fits the head. I guess I'll need to be a little more brave if I'm ever going to get him.

    BTW, it is romantic to be in the park after dark.

    1. Janainah - No the count didn't get creative in this case. I really wasn't counting action figures from the very beginning. I say buy the Asian head. Once you figure out how to connect bodies to heads, you will have a lot more men available to you. Sometimes they will suggest a body. Here is a link to a Jatman tutorial on action figure bodies. You should be able to figure out which body to buy from this tut. Good luck.

  14. So I'm like, "Dude, where's your shirt?"

    Love all the day/night park views.

    1. Kenya - Dude just rolled out of bed with his woman. He wasn't thinking about a shirt. It's almost midnight and they knew the chances of someone being in the park were pretty slim.

  15. I like Jacquelyn's new man. Nice addition. I like the way you do your math. No action figures included.

    1. Male Doll World - He's definitely a keeper, even if she decides she doesn't want him. Action figures weren't included because I will never turn down an opportunity to bring a nice male figure here. I have waaaayyyy too many ladies here and I get so stressed out just looking at them all. The 10 limit was just to cut down on my stress level. I still need at least 3 - 4 nice AA male figures.
