Get in here lesgen
How's the new year treating you?
>remember how stunning this gal is
Thinking about going back to school tomorrow makes me kinda sick
But I started watching Lost Girl and it's pretty cool so far so it cancels out
I bet you are currently writing a book too, huh?
Not exactly an actress, more of a TV personality, but... I totally have a huge crush on Kayleen McCabe from DIY Network. She's a really cute and fun person on the show and also very attractive to me. Also her toolskills hrrnngg... I grew up doing more building stuff with my dad than cooking with my mom. It's so sad Rescue Renovation doesn't get better timeslots... it's on like once every four weeks at 4:30 AM, but they still make new episodes.
I also had a big crush on Alanna Masterson and her character on The Walking Dead, but then she got IRL pregnant/ baby. 3straight5me.
Will I ever get such a high profile gf?
too bad she's not that good as an actress though
i have a plethora of crushes.
>tfw have dream about ex
>she is wrapped in a knitted blanket on a couch
>i wedged myself behind her and spoon her
>everything is warm and i feel content with the world
>feeling smoothness of her skin, the slight roughness of wool, and the safety of being sandwiched between the couch and her body
>woken up by the blare of my phone
i just want to dream forever
I approve of your taste, anon.
I always feel conflicted when I see things like this because I'm a natural redhead, but I dye my hair. It's like yaay people... would be attracted... to my hair... if it weren't... dyed... ok.
My waifu debuted in her first Japanese drama last night.
I'll try to ignore the fact that some cuck is romancing her in the series.
<3 Her being a power lesbian in JJ has fulfilled my childhood crush on her when she was in the matrix.
say that to my face fucker not online and see what happens
Also Dakota Rose is looking hot as ever.
From what I've heard her personality is complete shit but she's hot so I'd still fuck her.
>be little girl
>always get excited to see Xena
>wish to go on adventures with her
>mfw never realized how gay I was back them
I hope I am the only one who was perfectly heterosexual as a child until puberty kicked in and fucked up my brain.
Right now, I'm watching a lot of A&E Agatha Christie stuff. Death on the Nile should just be called Hot Babes: The Murder Mystery
>How's the new year treating you?
It's been funny watching the new folks in the gym with their resolutions already starting to disappear.
I've only seen two of her movies so far but omg she's exactly my type. Zoe Kazan btw.
Carol gave me a new crush.
And a stronger crush on Cate Blanchett.
>all these brunettes
Like, I see their beauty, but I must really have some subconscious blonde fixation. I don't find blondes beautiful, but damn, they're soo much more atttractive than brunettes.
Im the exact opposite. Blonde is pretty, but dark hair is so much better.
Still, here you go.
I agree, blondes just do something to me. Specially if they have really light eyes and pale skin.
Still, I'd had no issues dating a brunette or a redhead.
>tfw everyone in my class talked about how my crush and me are their OTP today
Th-This means there is hope, right?
>people shipping real people together
>people shipping their classmates together
This is going too far, the shipping line is crossed after 2.5D.
>two people said the same thing
>they must be the same person
Choo choo, all aboard xenatrain
This. The intensity when they looked in each others eyes, so damn close to kiss. My little 5yo soul wanted nothing more back then
Back then we shipped teachers and classmates before any of us even knew what shipping was. Fun way to pass the time.
I still do it
Are you me?
>be little girl
>ship Xena and Gab so fucking hard
>dad makes jokes about how they're probably in lesbians
Those fucking bath scenes though, it felt like I was getting away with something. Kids don't really appreciate life before the internet.
Actually now that I think of it I wonder if the producers were doing that on purpose? Like making a fantasy show for the little gay kids that they could watch in front of their parents without setting off any red flags.
And we're all straight men, lesbians don't real, blah blah may-may whatever.
HNNNGGGG YES. I also kind of like Tilda Swinton? Could have everything to do with the fact that babby me had a major thing for the White Witch when I read the book.
I tend to prefer brunettes, but the few blondes I like, I REALLY like.
A redhead is fine, too.
>two of my first movie wives
I was too... Then when I realized what sex was, I thought I was asexual cause I was never attracted to any guys. It is later as I fell deeper in the yuri universe that I realize that mayyyybe it is hinting to something about me.
>realizes that bois I forced myself to think I fancied were the ones my bff at the time fancied and I had a crush on her but denial lvl95
>realizes that I feel like wtf omg ew is this kissing whenever I kissed my one bf that i dated cz what the hell, friends told me he is the perfect guy (handsome smart rich lovely) and they all liked him and he was in love with me
>Girl has crush on me
>let her kiss me after I reject her cause pffft I am straight
>wait.... this is not bad
>denial for a few more years with no dating
>ex happens and it was great while it lasted
You memetext like a fucking retard, but yeah, I sort of know that feel. I never felt particularly attracted to any boys, but was pressured by classmates to like someone because if you didn't then it was weird. I thought I was hetero, or more like, never thought I could be a homosexual until I turned 12 and couldn't get my eyes off a slutty senpai in middle school, then one year later I discovered yuri and sort of understood I liked girls.
If I were to tell my 10 year old self that she will grow up to like girls she would not believe me. I literally don't know what the fuck happened with me during puberty.
>tfw i will never take a girl like this to go shooting together and then back home for kinky sex
>ywn be taken prisoner by an enemy qt eventually develop a forbidden relationship and run away together to join the rebellion
>mild dirty texting with gf
> tells me she's literally dripping
Yet I don't see her till Sunday...
To be honst, I like using :D and :) (not the yellow converted emojis, just the text) I wouldn't use anything else unless I'm joking around (like 20 bees in a row)
Maybe she wants the V, but she's adding smilies to show that she's not super creep-cereal about it and wouldn't stalk you if you turned her down.
Or maybe she's doesn't want the V but is still adding smilies subconsciously to show she's not super cereal and addicted to your attention.
Either way you should get the V unless she's uggo.
'bate it and then tease her back
I might be showing my age a little but I used to be (and still am) really into Meryl Streep. Ever since the first time I saw Out of Africa and Bridges of Madison County. She was really good in The Hours too.
Speaking of The Hours, also pretty into Julianne Moore.
Who is /legen/ voting for this upcoming election?
She's perfect now but I find her just as cute or even cuter when she's a little chubbier.
Part of me loves the fact that she's a total bitch, it makes me want to punish her.
I also saw some homophobic video she and her sister made basically all about how much she hated lesbians. Kind of gave me hope that she's in the closet and in denial. But who knows?
>tfw i will never marry her and get to bury my face in those beautiful tits
She's p. hot. She's not reeeaaally my type? Like I'm not properly crushing on her or anything. But I do, without fail, genuinely enjoy talking to her.
Context is usually me saying I'll be at something or that I like something she recommended and I get a string of ":D"s in return. Which I like. I'm a lonely-ass shut-in autist, y'know, it's nice somebody genuinely appreciates my existence, in whatever capacity it may be.
I have no idea if she's even gay, she's never indicated sexual orientation one way or another. She knows I'm gay, though. I figure maybe this is like... a straight-girl friend bonding thing? Or it could be not that. She tends to touch my arm and be in my personal space a lot, but straight women also DO that sometimes so...
Are there any dommes or dominant people in lesgen? ;_;
I'm a virgin and I worry that I'll never find anyone that wants to take control of me. I can only get pleasure when I know the other person would be, by taking advantage of me or using me to get off.
I've heard it's hard to find this and the stereotype that we're all subs.
Plus, I'm tall and I get a kick out of dominating shorter girls in bed.
Midget detected. What are you, like 5'0?
Yes, me. I completely get off on fucking my girlfriend hard, spanking her, biting her, scratching her, pulling her hair, making her come over and over again, tying her up, etc.
It's really hard for me to stop fucking her once I get going, even if she begs me to stop because she can't take it anymore.
>mfw straight males come in here thinking they can fool lesbians about lesbian sex
Before meeting my current gf I was desperate to find a submissive girl, my ex was a very vanilla Christian girl who called me a pervert for saying that I liked the idea of spanking.
Get over yourself.
Hmm, that's interesting. But how do you, you know, get off when you do those things? I always wonder what actually makes dominant lesbians actually get to orgasm and all that. Sorry for all the questions, other dommes can answer this too if they feel like it...
Well I don't actually orgasm from doing that, I still need some physical stimulation to achieve that, I just get insanely turned on and dripping wet like nothing else. So when I'm done with my gf she usually eats me out and/or fingers me so I can come a few times.
What PC bullshit? There isn't any PC bullshit, the whole thing is pretty raw.
I hate SJWs as much as the next 4channer, there's really no SJW anything there, unless you count "female main character" as an SJW thing, in which case you really don't belong in this gen.
>tfw I'm 5'3 but I this is a little below average where I live
I used to be the tallest in my class in elementary, also in middle school. Then I just stopped growing. I have the same height as in the 7th grade.
If you were aware of all the things feminists write about wanting to see in media - then you'd know this show is trying to bend to every whim. You got Trish and Jessica playing sisters before misters. In their dialogue, they go on about caring about each other as bffs and how no man is gonna come in there and get between their friendship. Which is what you hear feminists go on and on about wanting to see friends - not lovers, just two female friends who won't throw one another under the bus for a male romance. So you know Trish and Jessica will never get together, they're there to serve the friendship > romance thing. Then you have the dudes they sleep with. A black guy. Because POC need more representation. So it's interracial too. And I can go on and on but my point is
tl;dr It would be fine if they adhered to a little tumblr pleasing without making it so glaringly obvious with the dialogue choices. But if that one lesbian side character is what gets you to sit through that whole thing go for it. We need more lesbian main characters not side characters off some het show, thrown in for the hell of "diverse casting"
>Then you have the dudes they sleep with. A black guy.
Because a large amount of people on Earth aren't black and may happen to appear as actors on TV shows. Is it so unlikely to you that he might have fit the role or had any legitimate reason behind his casting? Are black people never supposed to be on television because it will be "PC bullshit" if they are cast? Gays like you honestly make me sick.
I heard it is going to be epic.
Stay a little bit long to watch the world burn with the rest of us.
Not worth it, we all have our due dates. There's no need to make it come any sooner then it has to. Why not try to make the most of this time we have to get what little pleasure we can from it?
I know that it's hard to see past this moment, I've been there. You just have to have blind faith that things will get better and that it will be worth it to keep going another day.
Well thanks. But you should know that i have been at this point several times, only to find it kick in even worse.. and also every single therapy i tried just made it worse. I have selfharm scars all over my body that remind me of what a weak ass idiot i am every single second. Therefore i cant find a girl cause obviously who in their right mind would get it on with a psycho. I am exhausted and i did it to myself
Haha you're reminding me too much of myself. Or at least who I used to be.
I was depressed, self-injuring, in therapy, on anti-depressants that made me a zombie, frequently suicidal, and just a whole bunch of stupid shit.
I 100% believed that I had no control over it, that things would never get better and that it'd be a whole lot less painful to just end it sooner than later.
I got to a point where I couldn't go on anymore and I decided right then and there that the only person who could change my life was myself, and I did.
Left therapy, stopped injuring myself, withdrew from the meds, and finally changed the root of the problem which was my thinking.
Your own mind is more powerful than you know. It took time but I broke the self destructive habits and changed my way of thinking to basically become a new person. I still have my ups and downs on a chemical level but I do not allow myself to become negative or self deprecating.
Scars are embarrassing, especially when you have hundreds of them but I learned to think of them as a symbol to never forget who I used to be and the kind of person I refuse to become again.
I've also learned that people who judge you for your scars were never worth your time anyway.
Don't do it.
I don't know who you are or where you are, but just hang on.
Know that some random asshole on the earth has connected to you online, knows of you and cares if you live or dies.
We'll never meet or speak to each other in real life, but the world will be smaller and much colder if you leave it before you've lived.
No, I'm not just some horny loser hitting on you. I'm a straight cis guy who doesn't really dig the lesbians. I just read what you posted and wanted to help you. Okay?
Ha, yeah. I just did tge whole med withdraw and stop thearapy thing last year.
And here you are getting me one step further. Now i obviously need to change my thinking. And habits. Thanks
I dont know how though...
Look... I was where you were many years ago. Had been addicted to heroin, disowned by my family, my sister (only family member who stood by me) had been murdered. I tried to OD and couldn't even do that right.
But I pulled myself together, got educated, got a decent job. It wasn't easy. There are always ups and downs in life and you just have to ride the dips in order to enjoy the highs.
Hang in there. It gets better.
Not gonna lie, it's pretty hilarious. Reminds me of how the MRA got humiliated by Forbes after saying that because of their manly efforts they managed to make Star Wars flop, despite all the stats and the fact that the movie just beat Avatar. All of my keks.
27 this year for me too, I feel like I stopped growing mentally after I turned 20. I seriously still feel like I'm that age, I look like a kid, still watch anime, play vidya, tell people to kill themselves on 4chan... Help.
You know, MRA actually have real fucking people in it and real organizations with real concerns.
Using it as a EBUL MENZ thing is basically an empty strawman constructed to demonize an invisible penised enemy.
Truth is, people think rey is a mary sue. Most female geeks think she's a mary sue and don't like her.
And it's not just the A WOMAN! SHE IS MY ENEMY NOW thing either.
The movie is making ends because it's a starwars that isn't bad, disney litterally bought off every single person and theatre and media outlet period, and they managed to defang the obvious mary sue by doing the tried and true "sandwich her between a chad and jamal to make her look more feminine and more competent" to make her more palatable to the audience.
If it was jut rey, it would have 100% shit tanked.
My older sister is 34 and wears those Japanese animal onesies, also watches anime and reads manga. My girlfriend who is even older is still also into the anime/manga/vidya shit. Turning into a mature adult with mature adult interests and shit is a lie, don't believe the hype.
Turning into an adult means becoming boring for most people. My collegues who have kids or a fucking house don't go outside anymore after work, hell, they don't do anything. No, I don't care about what your kid eat yesterday or what you changed in your house. Can't we talk about games or movies?
Cheering someone up surely is appreciated but are you really unable to see that stating your gender and sexuality was completely uncalled for.
Sorry girls for taking the bait and derailing the thread. I promise not to answer any further bait.
I'm 23 and also have some people around me getting married and having kids etc. I don't think I'd care that much if I was straight. Now I'm just terrified I'll never find anyone. Sometimes I believe I have to move to a different country just to up my already low chances.
kill yourself keks
>tfw average height (5'5)
>not tall enough for girls that want tall gf
>not short enough for girls that want short gf
Just fucking kill me, being average height LITERALLY is manletism for lesbians.
I am 5'10" which is doesn't seem very tall for the midwest but apparently is "tall". I would date you if you were my age, liked things I like, not insane, and basically white.
I think in the last thread I stated that I had never been molested, although today I remembered that I have been molested three times by other females, but I don't really count them as molestation since the experiences don't bother me, and I sort of enjoyed when a female security guard weirldy touched me for an inspection when I was 14. Am I an hypocrite? If I was molested by a man I would probably be full tumblr now.
27 is about 15 years too old to be telling people to kill themselves. Out of all the things you listed, this is the one that's the biggest sign of immaturity and stagnation. And a 27 year old who hasn't grown over the last seven years (and apparently thinks it's age-appropriate behavior for a 20 year old to tell people to commit suicide?) is really in no position to put others down, especially those younger than you which is the majority of 4chan. Luckily, this is also the easiest behavior to change. I wish I could draw some metaphor or comparison to illustrate what you're doing but "imagine a 27 year old adult telling people to kill themselves over the Internet" is honestly the example I would pick in any other situation. Come on, dude.
You must be an ugly fuck and that's the excuse they found to nicely reject you, because I'm 5'1" and have yet to be rejected by a girl, no matter how tall or short. All of my exes and my current gf are taller than I am. (Not like it's hard to achieve, kek)
>tfw starting to feel like a virgin due to sex life dry season
If you think "it's pathetic that an adult has spent a decade telling people to kill themselves on the internet" is self righteous then hoooo buddy. Buddy. Pal. Friend. I genuinely feel sorry for you.
I'm rewatching K-ON! and don't remember Mugi being THIS gay.
That's Taylor R. She started out and still is modeling for agencies in Japan and Hong Kong.
There is a high demand for foreign models so a lot of girls will move here to Asia if they get signed to an agency for a contract.
I'm sure she got the role through connections she has with her agency. I don't believe she's fluent in Japanese but she has decent basic speaking ability from what I've heard, and in the show she sounds like a native speaker.
>LoL now has japanese voices
Now I can listen to some delicious seiyuu while I play my shitty game
Circle lenses and some editing probably.
She doesn't need it at all, I think it's just the whole "doll" look she's going for.
These days she's been sticking to a lot more of a natural look.
Domme here. Just be less annoying than the other subs and they'll find you. If not you'll blend in and be invisible.
Become my gf you underage slut or I report.
You whore, I'm gonna forcefully make you mine and show you that proper women in their prime are better than old hags.
I can't do it with a 21 y/o
it's not taboo enough for me!
Are you some sort of bislut in denial?
Not that it helps your hurt feelings, but maybe she really is bisexual but scared of having sex with a girl due to internalized homophobia or just plain ol fear of sex. Maybe she's not having sex with her new boyfriend either.
As for dealing with it- treat it like you would any other break up, whatever that means for you.
This new anime that came out today about a fat guy who loves marshmallows
It's weird but I don't really like any celebs in that way. Not sure why.
>you will never experience this
How does that makes you feel? It makes me want to kill myself.
IF YOU SEE THIS WHILE SCROLLING DOWN /lesgen/ ON THE BUS (or other public place):
You have been visited by the "Yuri Image of Lewdness".
qt gf and Yuri levels of sex will come to you, but only if you post
"this is a blue board faggot
Who cares? Older women are superior for various reasons: great sex, money, maturity. Go for it, you won't have any issue finding one either, as long as you look good and you have a functional brain.
Not that anon but I think if I were to compare sex to food it'd be more like chicken.
You can make it a million different ways so you don't get bored, even if in the end it's always just chicken.
>does having good sex with a woman you find sexually attractive get boring
Ok, I'll give you a slightly more elaborate answer.
It doesn't get boring per se, but it does kind of lose that adrenaline rush of doing something for the first time. You still love it, because it always feels good, but you don't go into it with trembling hands and a racing mind.
I miss the sense of the forbidden and what I was doing was scandalous, but that doesn't mean I find sex boring at all. It's like saying that sleeping gives you no rest because you always sleep in the same bed.
>trembling hands and a racing mind
Kek, never experienced that.
>sense of the forbidden and what I was doing was scandalous
On the other hand I used to feel that when I started having sex, I would always think "Jesus, I'm licking another girl's vagina right now, how scandalous".
Maybe you were more confident in yourself than I was, but for me my first few times were always fumbling, awkward and extremely fun moments.
Most scandalous moment was making eyes with a woman on the train for the first time. That was fun.
Thankfully my mobile screen is pretty small.
>Now go seduce a qt girl with that pic.
I wish. But with temperatures reaching -20 (master centigrade system), my chances are pretty slim. Social interaction with strangers has been in hibernation mode for near months now for everyone living here.
I've only had eye contact with girls at clubs so scandalousness (?) level has been pretty low thus far. I think it's both the rarity of possible events (<5% of female population blah blah), and insecurity.
It's a combination of my own fear of rejection, but also the fact that I'm studying medicine. Like, the chances of ever meeting someone again is super low (I might even move as soon as I graduate), but I'm paranoid about it. Both the lesbian part and just being with someone else. Everyone is human, and gossip doesn't spread that far, but I can't escape the thought of it affecting my reputation and whatnot.
> your reputation will suffer
Not that anon but that's pretty much what happened to me. Once some people heard at work I was a lesbian, some of them stopped talking to me. Anyway, it's not like I give a shit about what people can say or think about me.
>experience recurring state of numb loneliness over how many "lesbians" I've known end up getting engaged/married to guys
>no gay friends anymore, all bi friends dating/marrying opposite-sex people
>old lesbian friend gets back in contact with me on social media
>she lives overseas now, has a girlfriend, they live together
>that's cool, glad for them, just stoked not to feel completely alone anymore
>it comes up in conversation that self-proclaimed "gay as everything" friend's girlfriend is pre-everything
>they pass as a het couple
>still totally a lesbian though, despite her partner being male in every way but pronouns
>because "the idea of dating a cis male makes [her] very uncomfortable"
>now just feel bitter and resentful every time she talks about her GIIIIIRLFRIEND
Why do I seem to be the only twenty-something dyke who didn't go bi/straight after college? Where does one sign up for the magical conversion to dickophilia?
I know my reputation in my neighborhood is not great because of me being a lesbian.
As for school it's just something that sets me apart but I don't think people care as much, specially since I have the top grades and other things that are more relevant as to how people perceive me.
It's too convenient to live here as for that to be an option at the moment. Plus I don't care. They might just jelly of all the girls they see coming over or leaving in the morning.
>I refuse to believe anyone would still call themselves a lesbian in private in that situation.
I remember when I had this much faith in people.
Ever heard the phrase "lesbian with exceptions"?
>tfw art block
>My unspoken new years resolution was to draw more, try to improve, and start posting my art online
>Anything I make now is absolute dog shit
>Haven't been able to draw ANYTHING in a long time now
Just kill me now.
Meh I used to be really afraid of what people would think too, then I just stopped giving a shit. I'm hot, young, educated, and have a hot girlfriend. What do I have to be embarrassed about? Fuck breeders.
I don't think it has anything to do with it. My sister works in Paris and with a couple of young lesbians. They're made fun of daily by their collegues, who talk shit about them behind their back on top of it. And no, they don't look like men.
Old enough to be past that sweet "who cares, I'm unstoppable" attitude, not old enough to be "who cares, everyone is going to die anyway".
Where I live is not big. People are generally tolerant, at least of lesbians, but do you know how much gossiping there can be at hospitals, smaller ones in particular? As I said, I'm fully aware that my fears are overblown, but there's still reason to them.
In addition, I've always been a very private person. I just don't like people knowing too much about me, or feeling vulnerable. Exposing myself either romantically or sexually is then something frightening for me.
That's why I hope to move to a bigger place after graduation, where I can live more freely, or temporarily to a small but distant place, where I can live for a while and then move away.
I don't know why some people on an anonymous board can't give a straight answer to "how old are you". You think people are going to track you down because you said you're 21 or something?
When I'm in a good mood it's much easier to write, but then it's also a great way to torpedo a good mood when I discover im blocked to hell and back.
Still, im gonna try and make a real concerted effort this year.
Who knows, maybe I can finish one of the three novels I started and dropped.
>talking to superqt chick
>crushing the hardest I've ever crushed in my life
>slowly getting up the balls to ask her out while we keep hanging out
>hang out so much over a few weeks that she starts confiding in me
>turns out she's a big ball of stress and anxiety
>she's torn up about a fight she got into with a friend and keeps talking herself down, saying that she should just stop being around people because she hates making people sad and she ruins everything and so on and so forth
>STILL want to ask her out even though I think she'll reject me
>for the first time in my life I could do this without being afraid of rejection
>but I'm afraid that making her reject me will make her feel even worse about herself and I don't want to cause her pain
>literally have no idea how to proceed
Hah, mine does too.
Evidently we should start a writing circle.
But yeah, if I ever do get something finished I'll probably end up shitposting about it eventually sometime.
Unless it's the one about the bisexual girl.
That one might raise a few heckles.
Can I be part of the writing circle(jerk)?
What do you girls write about?
I've been trying to write for a while now about a few things but never really get very far into them before I kind of wander off to do something else.
Currently a few chapters into my hurr durr lesbian schoolgirl story. Also trying to write a Kafkaesque story about a contractor trying to get paid while working on Mars and unable to communicate with the outside world.
Also wanting to write a fantasy story but can't think of anything that isn't a GoT rip-off or an "evil wizard" type story.
I'm trying to write about a magical girl in 17th century Salem. Like an actual "witch" during the witch hunts, dealing with monsters and shit while hiding from the hangings.
I haven't made much progress, but I have a good section of it planned out.
>Fantasy Ocean's 11
Sounds awesome. I'd read it. Same kind of humour or are you playing it more seriously?
Sounds like a lot of research. That's what kind of put me off from writing about more real-world things. Sometimes I wonder if I'm smart enough to be a writer or if I'll just end up as a pulp author confined to the ghetto of airport bookshops.
Yeah, definitely going for a similar level of humour in it.
It's written in the first person, as the main character's memoirs. So lots of asides and self-deprecation, pretty much. It's very english I guess.
As for having to do research, eh, it can be a pain.
I wrote a thing a while back, a sci-fi, which took a lot of research. It was some realistic stuff set in a near future Earth, so I tried to get everything as close to realistic as possible, which took some research.
Which was kinda a drag at times, but the story came out of it well I think.
Honestly though, write what you love, screw whether people will think it's 'classic literature' in fifty years.
If it's a story you enjoy telling, and someone else enjoys reading it, that's more than enough.
Maybe I've been spending too much time on /lit/. You're right.
Whenever I do research I find it hard to explain what I know without resorting to smart-ass characters giving one of those "as you know..." speeches or text dumps ala Michael Crichton. Same goes for world-building. I haven't yet found a way to slowly introduce all the places and history I have in my head. I'm getting better though. Writing for the smut-threads on /d/ kinda helps.
Yeah, info dumps are the worst.
I really hate when people do them, but sometimes it's just super hard to avoid. Especially if you NEED to explain something.
Though personally I find that if specific information about a place or person or event doesnt actually come up 'naturally' I just leave it out.
It's nice to be able to show off the world and the research and the detail, but if it just ends up being extraneous, then fuck it.
Most of the time, you can infer little bits through clues and context and offhand remarks and work it out. Much better having to work it out than having a two page AS YOU KNOW explaining a dozen things.
And yeah, writing anything at all is good.
I kinda ended up writing some fanfic stuff for the Life is Strange general on /u/ because the game's ending was so bad. Got me back into writing for the first time in ages, and im trying to keep it up again.
Eh I guess I have pretty high standards compared to most people. Idk maybe it's just me but the hottest people I've seen and even had relationships with weren't celebs so.
Not that this is revolutionary advice, but keep at it. You can't keep doing something and not get better at it. Relax and give yourself permission to make the worst art piece of art ever made in human history, so bad that aliens without any notion of what good and bad art is would still look at it and know it was abysmal. Because there's nothing at stake, you haven't been commissioned, you're not actually failing anything. It's okay to be at the bottom! I know it's stressful but it literally doesn't matter. You'll get better if you stop stressing.
This made me happy and that's a really nice picture.
I think that if you're fairly certain that not only will she reject you but that doing so will take a toll on her mental health... asking her out would be putting your needs ahead of hers. I know it's tempting because you're feeling strong and pretty fearless, but it sounds like in this situation, it would be a selfish act. Enjoy your friendship for what it is. It doesn't sound like she's fit for a relationship right now anyway. Wait on it a little. If your reason for doing it is "I can handle rejection" and not "we both want to be in a relationship with each other," that's kind of a shit reason. Especially when *she* can't handle rejection.
Good luck, anon!
Not the person who asked but this is a good explanation and it helped me understand the same thing the other anon was questioning. Thanks.
I think sometimes when people don't find celebs attractive, it's less about high standards and more that you might find personalities to really enhance/reinforce a person's attractiveness, as well as your chemistry with them, all of which can't be genuinely understood via red carpet interviews. Basically real tangible people are hotter than impersonal fantasies.
Don't get me wrong, I love reading about history. I even did a couple of units of history at uni just for fun. It's more like I don't like being hung up on smaller details, like fabric and what kind of tools these people used a 1000 years ago. I guess I'm more about sweeping narratives than little things.
I've been trying to perfect the art of subtle world-building. Having little details introduced as required, trying to tell history more through the world than the dialogue and stuff.
This has been my prime goal while writing a series about a succubus for the smut threads and its been so much fun. It just bothers me that most of my writing is cheap erotica and not the stuff I want to one day get published. I want to be serious writer one day.
I don't think they're intangible fantasies and I don't mean to sound shallow I just really haven't seen a celeb I find attractive and I am more of a looks person. Don't get me wrong if you don't have a good personality I won't be with you either but maybe I'm just blind to a lot of celebs but I'm sorry I just haven't seen any that really interest me sexually.
And before someone asks "are you not into girly girls" I'm fem and I'm into other fems too so that's not the issue.
If it makes you feel at all better, I've had a couple of things published and my first writing ever was shitty star wars fanfiction.
Everyone started writing somewhere, and in this day and age a lot of it is going to be less.... uh... 'lauded' I guess? Things like fanfiction or erotica or whatever might not be the sort of thing that gets published, but it's still writing. And hell, writing practice is still practice, whatever it is. Never ever stop writing, even if its 'just' erotica for /d/, or shitty poetry after a breakup, or anything.
But yeah, subtle world building is the absolute best thing ever.
When Im reading something and the world is obviously super detailed, but I'm only seeing subtle glimpses here and there as need be, it's basically my kryptonite. Even if the story is bad I'll love it anyway because of the world.
That's totally fine, there's no need for you to be attracted to celebrities. That's like the least offensive thing I can think of.
Oh god trying to memorize which spices were traded by which countries was the bane of my middle school existence.
Just my two cents but I think writing erotica is more than fine, especially if you're having fun doing it, and I think being good at it is a pretty good indicator that you're a talented writer. It's easy to write smut insofar as the author and reader both already know the basic motivation of your characters is and where the plot will lead (ie sex) and there's a lot of really bad erotica out there because you don't have to be too creative to write about horny people. But if you're able to surprise people despite this, if you can be creative and original within that established framework, if you can entertain and keep your audience in suspense, that's special and indicates good writing. Added to that is that there are a million and one pieces of writing, film, etc, that people can use as fantasy and masturbation fodder, so if someone chooses your writing over the millions of other things they can look at on the internet, it's kind of a compliment in its own right. Any kind of writing practice will help you be a serious writer, and this is good practice that gives you honest, instant feedback.
What kind of stuff have you gotten published and what was like going through the process?
I've been writing for about 10 years now, but only started considering it seriously in the last few years. It's funny, since I've decided this is what i want to do for a career, I've been less happy with what I write and find I get bogged down in planning rather than actual writing. I keep reminding myself to just push through and come back to edit it later, but part of me needs to do it right the first time around.
The feedback is the better part of posting smut on /d/. I've gotten a lot of positive feedback, but I don't know if I actually surprised anyone or left any kind of mark, but I've got a few followers, which feels pretty neat. I write a lot of het stuff, but that's just because I think its more interesting to read, but I do have an all-lesbian series running where I indulge in my own fantasies and that's really cool, I'm just worried I'm spending all my time writing smut and not working on the real stuff.
Eh, it was just short stories a couple of times, nothing particularly mindblowing. I've got an open offer from the publisher though that if I ever write anything longer form, they'd love to see it. And they invited me to a short story anthology a couple of months back too, which was nice.
It was mostly sci-fi stuff - one super hard realism sci-fi, the one I did a lot of research for, one more pulpy silly one, and one cyberpunk one. A fantasy one, too.
The process itself was a little different to the usual, since I work with them sometimes in the industry, so they already knew me. One of the editors of the book mentioned they were putting it together, and I asked if I could submit something.
He said yes, but he was super wary. He didnt want to just say 'no' outright, but he didnt expect any of it to be good.
So I was pretty nervous when I sent it off, obviously.
Went okay though. Very much managed to get my foot in the door via contacts (as is always the way, huh).
Still, they really liked my stuff, and ran with it.
And yeah, I've been writing years. I guess if you wanna get technical, my first writing was online roleplay at like age 10, but the first outright fiction I wrote was the Star Wars fanfiction about an OC donut steel x-wing squadron. I was the coolest 13 year old in my class, obviously.
I know exactly what you mean though - when it's just something you do as a hobby or for fun, its easier to accept that something you wrote isnt perfect.
When you want it to be a thing you do professionally, it comes with a lot of added pressure to make sure everything is as good as it can be. Which meant for me that I hated everything I wrote and thought it was shit.
That said, I went back and re-read some old stuff I remembered it all as being awful and was pleasantly surprised.
Interesting. I really need to get some contacts in the industry, but I really don't know how. There's a writer's festival in my city next month but I'm away for basic training the entire time it's on, so I'm gonna have to miss it. I'm on good terms with my scriptwriting tutor so I'm going to try cling onto her once I graduate with my useless arts degree. She suggested I follow up by applying to the screen academy as a scriptwriter and I'm giving it some serious consideration. That said, I need to start earning money or give myself over to the NEET life
My first stories were basically just me walking in circles in my garden, talking to myself. Then I wrote them down. Usually they were about girls in boarding schools have adventures like Harry Potter, but without magic. Self-inserts aplenty. Then I moved onto fanfiction and I'm actually surprised by how good I was. My writing was horrific, naturally, but I still like the ideas I had. I really want to start reworking them into original works. Eventually I gave up fanfic because my stories were always wandering away from the originals and I felt it was too containing. Since then I've tried (and failed) to write several novels. The best was a 75,000 word sci-fi story which I regret not finishing.
blog post over.
I just want to masturbate, I don't even care if it's in Russian but all Houshou doujins are absolutely crap, either waifushit vanilla or overly censored. I just want a Houshou doujin where she's getting fucked the shit out of her and is not censored to hell and back.
Oh man I know that feeling well, I have a bunch of old worlds I built and no fun stories to tell in them.
The thing I eventually end up trying it to just sort of write something totally mundane - like just some girl going to the shops and what she might see on the way there.
And then with what I 'knew' of the world, I just ended up with this short narrative that I could sort of springboard into something else with.
I actually did an english lit degree with a heavy writing component - it's a good way to get contacts for sure, to be sure to stay friends with your tutors.
As well as that, be friends with your clasmates too! If one gets invited to an anthology or whatever, they may well be able to extent suggestions or invites your way or something.
The other thing I'd suggest is to try and get into the industry with the degree and your writing experience. I personally work in proofreading (primarily) which is boring as piss, but it means that IM working with publishers and other authors and shit all the time.
It's pretty handy for making contacts, and also for just keeping my eye in, you know?
It's not quite the same as writing my own stuff, but even in my down periods where I didnt write for a couple years, I was still doing it after a fashion by fixing up other people's writing.
It's also super depressing sometimes to read something when you know you could write something better if you just had any inspiration or drive.
The things I've read. The things I've edited.
>The thing I eventually end up trying it to just sort of write something totally mundane - like just some girl going to the shops and what she might see on the way there.
>And then with what I 'knew' of the world, I just ended up with this short narrative that I could sort of springboard into something else with.
I wonder if this is what big time authors mean when they say they let the story tell itself...
>live in an area where a disproportionate number of women are married to other women, partnered to other women, dating other women
>tell myself that lesbians are uncommon so wtf we can't all be lesbians
>begin to doubt myself because it's a mental witch hunt
>get over it and dive into the sea of pussy
I guess women are just the better option. It's a good thing people are starting to see the light.
I know that feel well, anon. I've got scenes and characters that are fucking awesome in my head but I have nothing to string them all together. It's just random clips devoid of context beyond some vague idea I couldn't define if I wanted to.
What I did in the bad old days of fanfiction and early OC was basically look at stories that I liked and tried to think of how I could do it better. Like, if I liked this character but wished they'd been a little different, I'd turn them into a different character. From there the stories kind of mutated into something similar but different. That's how it started and from there much more original ideas were developed.
I think I'd be a good proof reader, but I did my grammar units during a bad year so I don't have the results to back up that claim. Another downside is that there is exactly one publishing house in my city and they aren't hiring. So I can try find work elsewhere or move to a real city that actually has jobs that aren't about digging or building houses.
And I'm definitely keeping in touch with my tutor. I thought she had a thing for me until I realised she was married and it was just my wishful thinking.
Thanks a lot for your advice. I really like talking to other writers, especially published authors.
Honestly I'm pretty sure it is.
Like, the short story I submitted for that anthology I was invited to a couple of months back I literally just started out from a single picture I had in my head.
One inspired by a pic from a wallpaper thread on /b/ of all bloody places.
>I really like talking to other writers, especially published authors.
Jeez, you make it sound way fancier than it is. It's just some short stories!
As for the grammar thing, I dont really even actually have anything that specific with regards to qualifications - like, we didnt have specific grammar tests or anything like that. Just the overarching degree.
As for there only being the one publishing house, yeah, iktf - I mostly work remotely as a freelancer rather than anything else. It's a bit of a bitch, but it's doable. There's a lot of houses here, but most are buttoned up tighter than a nun's habit on the streets of Cologne. A couple take on freelancers though, whichis what gets me through.
You COULD try asking them if they might take you on as an unpaid intern over the summer or something. Or maybe just work experience, shadow an editor for a couple of weeks.
Chances are they'll say no, but cant hurt to ask right?
It's nice to see other writers in here, too.
Feels good mane.
You're still leagues beyond me at this point and I always respect people who can succeed (to any degree) in my chosen field.
Hopefully they don't look too much at my results and just take my word for it that I'm good at what I do. I did really well in scriptwriting, but the rest is a bit hit and miss.
I considered doing an internship or unpaid experience, but I live pretty far from the building and I don't feel like driving for an hour for unpaid work. Not yet, anyway. I don't need a ton of money, but enough to cover petrol costs is all I ask for at this point.
I'll have to see how the screen academy idea goes. My tutor mentioned that it could take me into a professional job if I do well enough.
Oh it definitely could. I did a short work placement at a tv channel back at uni with a few classmates, and we did scriptwriting stuff. Most of the older writers had come to it basically off luck, but the younger ones had all had some kind of education in writing in general and I think all but two had scriptwriting stuff in specific.
So yeah, it definitely sounds like a good way to go, especially if scripts are where your talent leans.
Who knows, maybe channels will be after the all-dyke writing team to make their own version of OitnB or something.
Yeah, driving for an hour for an internship would be a bit of a bitch. Since you say petrol rather than gas I assume you're UK, meaning yeah, that would cost a retarded amount in refuelling. Very hard to justify that sort of cost.
Australia, actually. I'm awake when I shouldn't be.
I really doubt the ABC would let me and my harem write our own OitnB (I wouldn't write it anyway. Fuck that show) but once I get my foot in the door and do my time writing for Neighbours and whatever crappy little show they're filling a time slot with, I can move on to better things.
I do want to write serious shows and maybe films with lesbian characters, but I don't want to be a "lesbian writer" if you know what I mean?
Oh hey, you guys call it petrol too? Fair enough.
And yeah I know exactly what you mean. Hell, in everything I've written Ive got like... maybe two actual lesbian characters? And only one is a protagonist.
If you become 'that lesbian writer' then you're forever consigned to just being that in people's minds.
At least with fiction I have different pen names for different things, so I could just write a bunch of lesbian stuff under one name, and normie-appeal stuff under another.
I already had the first four shorts published under a male name because "Well people just wont take sci-fi with a female writer as seriously."
That one really fucked me off, but I was trying to play nice since they were publishing me.
>I do want to write serious shows and maybe films with lesbian characters, but I don't want to be a "lesbian writer" if you know what I mean?
I want to focus more on animation one day but looking over my story ideas, I definitely have a lot of female characters, and there's a lot of close friendships, but not a lot that are strictly lesbian.
Not a gold star. I dated a guy almost a decade ago, when I was still drowning in denial. How much longer will it take for the suppressed love of cock to surge up from the depths of my being?
Pretty much this; when will tumblr newshits learn? Plus threads in bump limit are more fun, as you can shitpost with a reduced chance of getting the hammer.
>just got my first desk job with a decent salary and 401k
>moving into my new apartment at the end of the month
>one punch man was really good
>gonna finish pokemon super mystery dungeon tonight
is it finally time for me to find a qt to settle down with? have i finally established myself into adulthood, thus making the dating process easier?
d-do i have hope?
>23, not kissless virgin, no school left and no gf
th-theres hope for us probably, right? nevermind that other anon who hates fun
I have the gay, I'm atheist, pro-faggotry in the closet
I noticed I felt very uncomfortable about girls lately, I've started to find them very embarassing in kind possible way (as fucked up as it sounds)
But I realised it was because I was actually the one embarassed about being attracted to them
The guilt is fucking killing me, I'm so afraid of my attraction to girls I start to feel bad when I go out, when I see a girl I'm attracted to in the street I feel like crying and I just want to go back home, even when I watch some lesbian random shit on the internet I start to panick even though there is no one around
I used to be mad in love with a girl from my school, and just looking at her made me sick literally, like I needed to go to the infirmary
How do you deal with the fucking guilt?
>inb4 it's ok to gay
I really feel like there is no problem with being gay though I feel extremely guilty
it's a process im pretty sure we all go through anon, when i was in high school i used to specifically avoid the locker room because i felt the urge to peek at other girls every now and then and the guilt was crushing me. I had a dream about one of my best friends and I kissing and I couldn't even look at her for a week.
I think just time and acceptance is the only key. the more you're around women, the more comfortable you'll be. Honestly it got easier for me once I came out, and I could hang out around girls who knew I was gay and still would change around me anyway.
it'll be all right anon. i promise
>badass pussy slayer
i mean when i first came out i was a badass pussy slayer but not so much anymore, i exhausted my immediate source of lesbians to date. but it is true, it does get easier once you get more used to the idea. coming out helps a lot. i have straight friends now who specifically invite me to go shopping with them so i can be in the changing room with them and give them feedback on clothes and i dont even bat an eye at it (i still try to turn around and not look out of respect but i dont feel disgusting anymore).
So can I take your virginity, qt underage-chan?
then don't worry, it definitely gets better. i didn't come out until after i graduated too. no worries, youngfriend.
Fortunately or unfortunately, some of it is just time. I made a post similar to this in October, I remember I was crying quite hard when I typed it out. I felt so much shame and guilt and while I still feel a little uncertain, but I can't tell you how much more confident and at peace I am a mere few months later. Personally found it really helpful to be in lesbian spaces like lesgen, watching lesbian youtubers and, although I'm sure I will get eyerolls and possibly insults for this, browsing the "wlw positivity" and "lesbian positivity" tag on tumblr. I found the over the top sap and affirmations helpful because I was pretty doom and gloom... it was healing to hear not just "it's okay" but "it's amazing." Not just "don't worry" but "celebrate." Tumblr stuff may be too corny and feel patronizing for you though, which is totally understandable) and following blogs run by lesbians. I don't know any gay girls irl, and all the bisexuals I know are happily in het relationships without ever having dated a same sex partner, so I felt pretty alienated. Reading about and seeing lesbians just living their lives and existing was really therapeutic.
I also found it helpful to try and picture myself in the future, when I am happy and at peace and in love with a lovely girl who loves me back, and picturing what I might look like then and what she might look like. Basically giving myself an image of a future to look forward to.
You may have recently realized that you're gay, but all your other character traits still hold true and define who you are much more than this. Being gay is the least interesting thing about you. Much more important are your goals, your values, your interests, and those things haven't changed. You don't have "the male gaze" when you look at girls, you are not predatory or bad.
TL;DR- Deep breaths for now. You're a good person and you don't disgust or frighten other girls. It's all good.
Don't be sad, you're gonna die someday and all the problems you held during life will be lost and gone forever just like your existence.
>some of it is just time.
I recall it was even worse before, just being alive made me feel guilty
And I realised I was gay about 6 years ago, so it's not so recent
I've always avoided the "be positive about.." stuff, but I think it's what's awaiting me
Thanks anon, that helps a lot though
>wanting to date an old lady that most likely not have a sex drive anymore
Lesgen got so much more wholesome and pleasant after bump limit. Girls discussing their literary aspirations and creative struggles, talking to each other in socially acceptable ways and being supportive, sharing animal pics. 10/10 for everyone who stuck around.
Sending good vibes and well wishes your way. What happened? :(
<3 Glad it helped. I understand why one would avoid the sappy stuff, but worst case scenario is that you will have looked at happy things. Everyone grows and heals at their own pace. Even if the last six years have been rough, by your own admission you've made progress (and leaving behind the guilt over your very existence is a HUGE step and very difficult to do, you should be proud) and honestly you have a six year head start on all the people who are only just now starting to realize and work through their orientation. You sound like good people, I hope you feel comfortable and confident with a qt by your side soon.
That is super familiar.
For me it was that in my teens.
I was at an all-girls school. I had this revelation and I just... man, it was horrid. I didnt know where to look in classes, I felt fucking guilty no matter where I looked.
Getting changed for PE, I basically stared at the floor the whole time. I cried myself to sleep a lot, and basically ended up depressed and anorexic. For quite a while.
But honestly, yeah, it took time. And more importantly, it took talking to a couple of lesbian friends I made.
Basically just encountering other gay girls, speaking to them about just normal life shit.
I think it was just that I needed something to 'normalise' me.
Eventually I found out that three of the girls in my classes were gay too.
I ended up dating one for years. Turned out she'd had the exact same guilt at pretty much the same point as me.
SO yeah anon, it's a horrid feeling, but it passes.
Oh hey are you the UK anon that I talked about sex ed with? Classroom of girls putting condoms on bananas, teacher sneaking in some info about adoption rights, realizing your orientation in an all girls school? If yes, you were cool and I have been thinking about what you told me, and I hope you're doing well. If not, whoops!
I like hearing your guys' stories about overcoming guilt, they're very reassuring and nice.
Oh god you make me remember that I will die and not have experienced all-girls' schools and that it's already to late for that.
>I felt fucking guilty no matter where I looked.
It's been the same for me
>I think it was just that I needed something to 'normalise' me.
It's also probably what I need too, even though I've known I had the gay for quite a while I'm always astonished when I tell myself that I like girls, like I'm discovering it
>I hope you feel comfortable and confident with a qt by your side soon
>it's a horrid feeling, but it passes.
Thanks a lot, anons
Oh hey yeah that's me!
Fucking banana condoms.
I cant really say much to make you feel better about that anon other than it proabbly was nothing like you're hoping / dreaming.
I mean we had school uniforms though. So there's that?
>like im discovering it
Yeah, exactly. Well you pretty much are. Like, I kinda 'knew' long before I really admitted it to myself, but there's this point where you just sort of have a moment of revelation.
You'll get through it anon, don't you worry.
And then you'll get a qt gf, and you'll wonder what you ever worried about.
>I cant really say much to make you feel better about that anon other than it proabbly was nothing like you're hoping / dreaming
I know, but it would have made my 13yo self really happy regardless of the incoming disappointment.
Really, the only thing I regret in this life is not telling my mom I want to go to an all-girls' school and deny my dykeness while I beg.
Not gonna lie, I kinda want to become a teacher at a girls school.
Wouldn't do anything wrong but I want to be the cute flirty femme science teacher my gay ass had a crush on when I was in high school.
>and if a student had a crush on me, I would turn them down
Why would you want to crush the love of a cute innocent girl? You should give her what she wants.
I wouldn't do well in jail. I would definitely mouth off to the wrong dyke and get murdered. At best I'll just find my own Taystee and Poussey and hang out with them and try to get Poussey to bang me.
If an innocent student of mine had a crush on me I would let them down gently and subtly imply to look me up after they graduate.
I know it's trash, I didn't get past a few chapters, but I read on /u/ that she ends up with her best friend so I figured she eventually ends up enjoying fugging tons of grills.
I wish I had the MariMite life too. You get both an onee-sama and qt petite soeur
Law. I'm not happy with it, but then again I wouldn't be happy with any career. I'm just driven by the money I will be making.
>you will never have a threesome with your onee-sama and petite soeur
Fashion design major here.
I absolutely love fashion, sewing, and fashion design itself, but there are a lot of things I really dislike about the fashion industry as a whole.
My other true passion in life is bodybuilding and fitness/health in general so I want to incorporate that with my love for fashion.
My goal is to create my own brand of fitness/athleisure clothing after I finish school while pursuing bodybuilding at a competitive level.
are we still talking about celeb crushes? because im 100% in love with the lead singer to daughter. her voice slays me. and her qt haircut. and she plays the guitar
We are always talking about celeb crushes, anon.
>tfw I ran into another dyke in this thread the other day who seemed really awesome and I was going to ask her if she happened to live near me but I missed my opportunity
>tfw I'm so autistic I try to hit on people over 4chan
>tfw I'm so autistic that I try to hit on people over 4chan and fail
This is the like where autists come to hit on other autists. A sort of lesbian training ground, if you will. Where the patrons are making that last ditch effort to learn how to communicate with other women. In the poorest manner possible, of course. It's all a sad soup of asbergers, tears, unhealthy interests, and delusion. But it is the final resting place of kissless lesbian virgins after all.
Yeah but we're both anons. How'd I recognize her?
I can't really do it if the convo's over and we're both legion tho.
I will concede that I am a massive fucking pussy. I was planning to ask in response to her next response, but then she never responded and I figured responding an hour later like
>btw d-d-do y-y-you l-l-like v-videogames?
Would earn me a "turbo" on the autism scale.
>tfw you've had plenty of sex, you just haven't dated in the past few years
In the land of the blind, the one eyed-dyke is queen.
>But it is the final resting place of kissless lesbian virgins after all.
I guess I'm in the right place after all.
Don't worry anon. I encountered a anon a few weeks ago on here that lived in the same state as me. She seemed like a decent person. I was too scared to ask her for her email or skype or some other way of contacting her.
Hi! I don't know which anon you meant but I suggested that if you're having trouble with usernames, you could think about what image or brand you want to project and that an artist might have "papers-and-pencils," and that if you could handle people here then you could certainly handle people on OKC,. Also came up with "literary agents of SHIELD" and a few other puns, haha, and wrongly guessed that you were the pineapple person on AO3. I was actually really curious if you were able to come up with a username after all!
Totally you I'm talking about.
I have still totally failed to come up with a name. I'm thinking something from Black Widow, maybe, she tends to be pretty easy to username. At this point I should probably type random characters into the username field because literally anything is better than doing the nothing I am now.
...say, you don't happen to live in California, do you? Long shot, but hey.
Wow, hi! This is so nice and flattering and sweet!!! I'm sorry that I never responded, I don't quite remember where we left off but I promise I wasn't purposefully ignoring you or anything. Unfortunately I'm on the complete opposite side of the country in New York. Actually going to the West coast next week but to Seattle, not California.
>btw d-d-do y-y-you l-l-like v-videogames?
I do like video games. :)
Oh, don't worry about it. I realized after the fact that my last post was one of those that didn't really invite a response, so I don't blame ya. Plus, y'know, internet.
>Unfortunately I'm on the complete opposite side of the country in New York. Actually going to the West coast next week but to Seattle, not California.
Well fuggg. Was worth a shot.
>I do like video games. :)
Haha I'm not a huge gamer myself these days. I used to be an *obsessive* World of Warcraft player, but not for a few years now. I do have a few PC games I absolutely love, though.
What do you play?
Not a huge gamer either but the last three games I played were Life is Strange, Undertale, and Phoenix Wright. I've never played World of Warcraft, though I have read a weirdly large number of sociology/psychology articles about it for my classes?
In regards to usernames again, I've used random username generators in the past when I really couldn't think of anything. If your biggest hesitation in joining a dating site is a username, I promise you will be fine. California has no shortage of cute nerdy girls who like other girls. Like I said last time, at best you'll find your soulmate and at worst you'll have flirted with a few cute girls online which is a good outcome on its own. While I don't know what you look like, I *do* know that you have a good personality and good communication skills. You're also a writer which means that you can craft a strong profile. You should definitely go for it! I may not be in California, but someone else is.
It's 4:30 am here so I'm headed to bed! Not sure how much longer this thread will last but if you want to keep chatting, lmk if you have an account somewhere (tumblr, reddit, etc) that you're comfortable sharing and I'll message you. Have a good night, anon! <3
> I've never played World of Warcraft, though I have read a weirdly large number of sociology/psychology articles about it for my classes?
I'm not surprised. I've read a lot about the psychology at play there, too. They're definitely very crafty in how they design those games.
>If your biggest hesitation in joining a dating site is a username, I promise you will be fine.
I hear ya. I think it's probably some cover for, like, fear of rejection or something.
>While I don't know what you look like, I *do* know that you have a good personality and good communication skills. You're also a writer which means that you can craft a strong profile.
I actually have the profile itself almost entirely written out in my head already, I just need the damn name.

Ooo, tough one. I don't have a tumblr and don't wanna post my Reddit on 4chan. Have you got Skype? For some reason Skype (text, not video or whatever, dear god) is how I keep in touch with people. Lemme make a throwaway I can post on 4chan and I'll reply again with it.
Aww,thanks! I'm glad this was a positive thing all around. For the record, I would be totally psyched to go out on a date with you if you were local. You seem very smart and amiable, and you share my interests and shit.
Now, now, dear, don't be edgy.
