>gf really dislikes lolita
>I've wanted to get into the fashion for ages, just put together my first coord and feel super cute in it
>she confesses to me she thinks I look really nice and says she know feels differently about lolita

I'm so happy I could tear up a little. I wouldn't stop dressing how I like for a SO but it feels so nice to know she likes to see me in this.
Pic extremely unrelated to my kind of feels but eh, feels thread!

I really want to get into lolita but I'm 21, chubby, and a poorfag. I also am worried I might be wanting to get into it to spite a friend who thinks I would look awful in it.

this is not an issue. lolita isn't ageplay.

I hate lying to him, but it's my own money. And Lolita makes me happy. He is constantly buying expensive toys for his son and new drone parts. I work overtime and I work closing shifts for my lolita.

I'll have to come clean and tell him one day, I just regret the day I'll have to tell him.
>>
>>8708896
OP here, I'm 22, a little chubby and a poorfag as well.
Age is completely irrelevant, desu. As long as you take care of your looks, you're perfectly fine.
Being chubby just requires a bit of extra care in picking pieces that flatter you (that's with any fashion, really). Always check your measurements before buying, no "oh, I fit a 12, so this should fit" shit. Always ask for measurements and always measure yourself before commiting to buy.
As for being a poorfag, save up/set a little money aside that you can spare and make a monthly budget. Stalk your country's sales groups and lacemarket, many times you can get nice pieces for fairly cheap. Taobao brands are your friends. There are also nice Bodyline pieces, just look up reviews of the pieces you're interested in before buying. Thrift stores are also a good place to find blouses and accessories.
I just wouldn't advise you to get into a fashion just to spite someone, tho.
>>

>>8708919
Thank you for the advice, gulls! I realised at an upcoming con a few comms in the larger area are putting together a bring and buy so I might go, try on some pieces and see how I feel. If I genuinely love it, I'll go for it!

I'm thinking of not celebrating my upcoming 21st birthday at all. I don't have any friends. I love my family but the ones that visit on my birthdays are those that I see often enough.

I just don't see any end to this cycle anons. I should give it a few more years, but if it's still the same the time I hit 25, I'll just end it.

i really want this to work but im getting super frustrated about all of this lol.

>I'll have to come clean and tell him one day, I just regret the day I'll have to tell him.
Uh, why? You're an adult. You don't have to disclose your financial details with anyone.
>>
>>8709037
If after 3 years you're more upset about whether or not you'll see your stuff again rather than the actual break up, it's time to end it. Go see him and pick it up. Or go see him and try and fix things up.
>>
>>8709054
he lives a few days away so i really can't. its not that im more upset about my stuff its just that the fact if we do break up, i wont get it back, is bothering me. we're kinda poor so i cant exactly replace it.
>>
>>8709017
Either make some friends, or go do something on your own for your birthday. Do whatever you want, or don't. From the sound of your post, you sound really down. Maybe consider getting some help, or somebody to talk to? In general, birthday plans or not, you should see about finding a hobby that makes you happy and gets you out of your room.

And trust me, 21 isn't old. Nor is 25. I was in your shoes once, and I regret wasting some of my 20s being depressed and going into hermit mode and not doing anything. Just make the most of it, the details will work out when its meant to work out. And I know how "it will work out" can sound cliche, but it eventually does. You just have to make some changes and decide what's worth it.

>>8709042
This. And if it's all your money you worked for, it's none of anyone's business what you spend it on.
>>
>>8709062
I'm sorry, but if you're expecting him to come visit you and you won't visit him? That's not fair. Also, if he's not decent enough a person to ship stuff back to you if you explain how important it is, then that speaks for itself, really.
>>
>>8708910
How much had he spent on his Icahn hobbies? There are gamers who easily drop 2K for a new gaming PC.

Unless you have shared finances and your hobby is making unnecessary risks to your survival (needing to eat ramen only, no emergency savings, credit cards aren't being paid off, you're behind on rent), I really don't see why you need share every detail of your hobby budget with your boyfriend.

I have a psychologist I can tell everything. But even then I can't bring up how down I feel sometimes. When I got tested for depression I couldn't even get myself to say I thought of killing myself often because those moments are infrequent so I figured it's not that bad.

I draw but it's all online so there's no reason for me to go outside. The only regular social thing around here is partying and I'm too sensitive to sound to handle those.

Sorry for being so negative, I do honestly appreciate your input. It's just hard to see light at the end of the road during moments like this.
>>
Today I measured myself and found out I lost another 4cm. I can now fit into my dream dress.
>>
>>8709042
I'm just afraid of him being like 'you have better things to spend your money on' and guilt tripping me to sell some stuff

>>8709078
I have no utilities besides putting gas in my car. He spends a few hundred on toys and other stuff
>>
>>8709078
>boyfriend
Didn't Anon say stepdad?
>>
>>8709132
Yeah I understand. Just try to keep your head up and keep moving. Be sure to take care of yourself. It gets better. It's not ever perfect, but you'll eventually find some decent people to trust and call friends. It's all kind of a balance; you'll have good days and bad days, you just have to take it all in stride and live in the moment. (If you health is such that you need medication though, take it so you're chemically balanced.)

If you're artistic, have you considered visiting art museums? Sometimes they can be really uplifting or at least get your mind off shit for a little while. There has to be something other than just partying. Maybe try looking outside of your immediate peer group?

Your post speaks to me a lot because you remind me of me. I hope things turn around for you.

I'm super spaghetti all the time and I'm scared of coming off as clingy and awkward all the time so I'm scared to make new friends unless we have mutual friends. As a result, I'm only barely acquaintances with my entire comm. I wish I could open up and make real friends but I'm afraid I'll fuck up.

I've been questioning a lot about my life lately. I recently came across a youtuber that I think is really cute and it got me thinking about how the type of guys I like would probably never like lolita or would see me as a whole as too childish. I'm thinking about what do I really want more out of my life. Do I want a relationship at all or is being who I really am more important to me? In order to attract someone I would also like, I would have to radically change a lot about myself (these would be positive changes to be sure like dealing why my emotional issues a lot better) but what would really be worth it to me? I don't think I could ever be a good partner for anyone but sometimes I see other couples being happy and I feel quite alone. When Im old, what will I have? Just things to think about I guess.
>>
>>8709483
he sounds like an ass, but what do you mean you "wrote stuff for him"?

>>
>>8709519
I honestly love helping other creatives with their work, I do it all the time, so that doesn't steam me nearly as much as the laundry list of other things he's done. I should never have tried to work it out to begin with, as I'm still salty as fuck about the whole thing.

Maybe just drop the idea that you can buy her

I remember when i felt similar to you, anon. I'm still single because i didn't make it work with someone for some reasons, not related to lolita. I like guys that are into darker fashion styles, slight metalheads, punk, goth, etc but i'm not edgy not that interesting looking except for my lolita/otome clothing, i never dress sexy (i'm going into Larme as well but isn't that sensual looking as western alt styles), i never have loads of makeup, no piercings, no tattoos, edgy haircut or other features that are found usually in girls that dress western alt fashion. Most guys would think i have too frilly/childish tastes, not compatible to them, ugh it's weird. What i can suggest to you is to never change for a guy, i know isn't the best when you feel the type of guys you want wouldn't not understand but believe me, if you change for someone and you don't feel happy to be yourself you will regret it badly. Being yourself is more important than having a relationship with someone that doesn't accept you as you are, one day when you least expect you can find someone, good luck anon.
>>
>>8709554
Thank you anon. Sometimes its hard to NOT want to be a different person when you don't like yourself much anyway. It's hard to not see your own worth through the lense of other people. If a guy liked me, that would make me worth something. I've been through this before and made the mistake already, but that doesn't stop me from feeling the same way all over again. I also prefer "edgier" guys to me. Bigger, stronger and some facial hair. I've always felt this confusing mess of both big and small (I am short but I have very thick legs) and for once I just want to feel small in someones arms. I do not like sexier styles of dress (not that they flatter me anyway) so I am kind of stuck in this state of feeling like a perpetual child. I'm sick of seeing my body age but my mind stays put and I'm scared if this doesn't change I wont have anyone at all. Is it possible to have a quarter life crisis? I know it sounds silly but god I feel so old and useless. Thank you for your encouragement though anon. Sometimes I need to hear these things because hope dies otherwise.

No. Bullshit. Go for it seriously anon. Just make sure things fit well and flatters you and that's it. Put money aside and lurk second hand things.

>>8709017
I was like that when i turned 18 last year. Am 19 now and seriously you might be depressed and in need of help. Please take care of yourself. Find something to be passionate about. There are so many things to look forward. And we are ALL going to get old and wrinkly. Even the kawaiiest of them all.

>>8709132
It's fine anon i know how you must feel somehow. Sometimes you just need to talk about negative things to get them out of your chest? Anyway please take care of yourself. I attempted suicide last year. Was not worth it at all.

>>8709483
Oh wow what a fucking jerk


For myself: I am so happy i came back to lolita and looked back at all the old forums and blogs i used to stalk in 2008-2010. I decided to say fuck to negative people in my life and drift away from them. Best decision ever. I finally got the courage to wear something pastel pink w
and felt so cute and happy again. I am also going through old kota and venus drama when i was passionate about their style and stufff. Bought something that reminded me of them in that era where they inspired my weeb self a lot (little cat shaped bag for Kota and polka dotted red teacup for Venus). I feel so happy. I am so weird tho.
>>
>>8709570
I'm glad my words sounds with you and also happy to find someone that feels similar to me, even if right now i feel happier, i got rid of toxic people in my life, buying loads of cute stuff for clothing and my home, i'm doing a radical change and not settle for anything less. I tried to dress sexy, edgy makeup (looks ugly on me), i can't walk on high heels, i look bad on tight bodycon clothing, i'm not overweight but they are so unconfortable and my hips are violin shaped, a recipe for disaster. Poofy or mini skirts with pleats look perfect on my body. I understood it's better to not try too hard to being into changing myself to attract people and single is the current choice. I feel to not find anyone i would really fall in love anymore, my body well would age one day, i'm still young but i feel the time passing and what i attracted are people i'm not into, weirdos or fake nice guys. My legs are sorta thick too, barelegs i look odd in short skirts, idk why normie society insist to not wear any sock/tights other than boring or plain, i love cute socks. This fucking quarter life crisis we have (doing very good but...) is really awful, wish people would go further looks and see what we are for real. I see also people not for relationships mentally and they get amazing people, man... it's awful. While we can't get anyone, some says the secret is to be the full ourselves rather to change, it's true but a long road.
>>
>>8709575
Awesome! I'm so happy that you're back (even though I have no idea who you are) as a previous lone lolita
>>
>>8709570
>>8709554
Don't worry anons, as a lolita who has had many boyfriends, there will be a guy that comes along and accepts you. My current BF is a bara type muscular guy with giant shoulders, though he isn't attracted to me in Lolita, he does like how passionate I am about the hobby and will get me a dress for Christmas or Anniversary. They're out there, they can just take some searching for.
>>
>>8709017
I'm the exact same at 22, started feeling this way when I was late 20/early 21. I don't consider the people I know as friends, acquantinces you see at school so they can get your notes but that's the extent of it. It's extremely hard to make them in the hick town I live in. I try my best, but Istill feel left behind and stuck. I was thinking of ending it by 25 or so if it was the same until I got on SSRI's for my depression. Now I don't cry everyday and shut myself in as much. The SSRI helps me get through the day. Try looking into them.

I'm still not happy, but now I know it's a product of my environment and not my brain's inability to regulate chemicals. You could just need a change of environment as well.
>>
>>8709639
This is also a really common thing to feel at your age. Mental illness or chemical deficiencies can make it unbearable and very exaggerated. But around your early to mid 20s people start going at their own pace in life, which can make people feel separated and "left behind" from everyone else. You also can see your friends start moving on to do great/fun things with their lives and feel like your own doesn't match up. FB and the internet can make this WAY worse and some therapists will say that a break from your feed will do wonders to put you back in a realistic/better place. But if you're thinking of ending it over a stuck feeling, I can second on those SSRIs they do wonders.
>>
Ah, that lovely feeling when you open a parcel worth US $550 only to find that the items are drenched in sweat and feel oily to the touch with dozens of marks all over them.

Why is it so hard to clean things before selling them? Now I have to waste 3 hours busing to the dry cleaner and I'm really sick right now. She'd better cover the costs...
>>
>>8709650
Aw damn, I feel your pain. Hopefully they'll refund some of your money so you can get it cleaned!

>>8709693
I know a lot of trauma lolitas, I feel the fashion attracts girls that aren't really into age play but need a form of escape. I'm one of them too. Don't feel bad, this is how you need to use the fashion right now. There is going to be a time when you don't need it this way so keep your eye for it. Don't use it as a crutch when the time comes, but right now it's fine.

>>8709627
That is so cute anon!!This show how seemingly different people could get together well and with no issues. He is so cute to buy you a lolita dress and accept your style! I had someone that was into goth/metalhead, wearing makeup but very very different from me not about looks, it wasn't a bad match (there was attraction, love) but stuff happened and we are friends, he wasn't attracted to my lolita that much, for a lack of knowledge of the style. Also my case even if not successful show how different people could go together. After all, having a too similar partner is a tad boring similarties and oppositions work better if mixed!

>>8709741
1. Save up so that you have enough to deal for a few months. Ideally a few k so that if shit happened you can pay for things.
2. If you havent already, start paying for your own stuff. Take on expenses so you can see how much money you have to play with and if you are able to take it all with your income. You may find that your kinda part time job isnt enough so start looking for a full time or pick up other part time jobs.
3. Budget it out to see what you could spend on rent and see if that is something possible with roommates. It is unlikely you will be able to afford all of the rent at first but that is why you live with others.
4. Dont listen to your mom, she can 'want' whatever but you need to do what you need.

He might have just not been into you.
But you could keep an eye out on the con tags and fb photos, if it turns out he has a page or tumblr you could drop him a "you looked great, sorry about my friend!". Just don't be creepy, traps already get a lot of that so they'll be able to see right through it.

I’m pretty sure he has a twitter, but I don’t have that. He added my guy friend on facebook with a personal account, but I'm not sure if I can add him out of no where? Idk, I'm awkward as fuck.

I have a feeling I didn’t make much of an impression on that trap at all since females were constantly following him and showering him with attention for being really cute. I was already afraid of being a creep after so many girls started acting creepy to him.

I feel you anon, I have a friend just like this. I wound up having a performance that she wanted to go to (it was out of state). I usually have a strict policy about shows. I don't spend time with friends or family before any performance, but if figured she'd be okay. She went but expected me to pay attention and entertain her while we were there. She showed up for call time with me, wouldn't let me rehearse, shake off jitters and wound up guilt tripping me minutes before the show about how I was ignoring her, started pushing my buttons before I had to get on stage. It drove me into a massive panic and made the whole performance odd. I threw her a nod during the improv portion of the show, thinking that getting to participate would make her feel better, and she straight up ignored it, looked her phone the whole time. She walled me during a show after complaining about attention, which is always awkward for performers but having it be a friend is worse. We moved to the person next to her, pretending she wasn't walling us. After the show she continued to shun me until we got around other friends, then she acted like nothing happened and kept asking me to introduce her to people and trailed like a puppy, calling me senpai and saying how I was a meanie before, but it's okay since she can have me all to herself now. Worst working convention I've ever had. Had to place the "no friends at cons" rule again. If you have needy friends do not convention with them, it's about 100x worse than saying no.

That's really wise even without the other lolitas messing it up for you.
Mental illness shouldn't be something disclosed within the first 20 minutes someone is talking to you.

No one tells everyone else about every ailment they ever had as soon as they sit down next to you.

It's not weakness. It's the courtesy of not laying heavy shit on someone that barely knows you.

Thankfully I haven't had to deal with any of that at a convention yet, and the friend I mentioned has gone to cons with me and has been fine, but she's also been with her boyfriend, and they broke up after the last con we were at.

She's now messaging me on FB grilling me about not "liking" her comments on my posts. I don't even smoke and I feel like I need a cigarette.

I just feel a little hopeless. I feel like I'm falling apart bit by bit and how could anyone want to be with a girl who's falling apart and really I just don't want to be alone.

At least I have a really cute wardrobe, and a amazing cat. I'm going to try really hard to not go on spending spree to try and cheer myself up.

Damn, reading this whole thread makes me feel soooo good I decided to never do relationships again. They're such scams, when you're 'single and looking' you just feel shitty and ugly and worthless. When you finally get in a relationship it's nice for awhile but it always either ends painfully, or someone gets pregnant and the couple decides to grin and bear each other.

Now I can be ugly and happy in peace, I highly recommend it.

I feel like I'm not worth it if I'm not 100% perfect.

I am so overwhelmed and over stimulated. I am in a better place now than I have ever been before in my life. After becoming independent at 16 finally now, years later, does the word really fit. I've drifted from friend to friend, state to state. I should feel like my own person more than ever. I am talented enough to make a living off of it, or rather pretty enough. It's really exsausting. I have had such wonderful people support me through out everything but it's hard to build a life out of love. Honestly I never expected to get this far. I feel like I should have a plan but I've only ever been able to get from day to day. If you've never lived in one house for more than a year in your entire life maybe it's impossible to develop a stable mind. Even though I have my own place now, my entire order of existance requires me to continue as a traveling gypsy. I'm never home for more than two days at a time. In the last 2 months I've been to Phoenix, Chicago, Los Angeles, Burning Man, and someone elses house every other week. And sometimes it's hard to tell whats work and whats play. It's all supposed to be fun. I wish I liked dressing up and looking cute as much as I used to. I'm finally good at it, I have a lot of cute clothes and high quality make up. I keep modeling because now I feel like I am obligated to make it all worth it, plus it pays the most and my new home is precious to me. I desperately want time to myself. I want to focus on what is important to me. I want to create again. I need solitude. I know that I just have to make time for myself and my home. But it is so hard to turn an opportunity down. And there are so many precious people that I want to appreciate especially when I only get a chance to see them once every year or two. I know I am on the right track and I have to be as strong as I can. But I have always been a transparent person. I can't hide how I feel. Things are better now than they have ever been, but the years have left their mark on me.

Any exertion in general? Or specifically stress on your knees? Either way I'd get a second opinion if possible.

But, if it's your knees, there is always something. Swimming is low impact and one of the best cardio workouts around.

There is also the arm bikes, where it's a normal exercise bike you pedal with your arms. Those aren't super common.

Rowers are common in gyms any more and shouldn't stress knees much.

Or just barbell complexes focused on upper body/abs. Barbell complexes are basically what crossfit is based on, just not taken to stupid extremes.
>>
>>8713532
>>8713113

Forgot to mention, weight loss/gain is mostly nutrition anyways. So you can focus hard on that and then do what you are able to with exercising.

If it's something you want to do, you can do it.

I met a guy who is no kind of pervert, likes my frills, and it feels very comfortable even when we don't say a word to each other, but a girl (already in a relationship) who works with us gets to spend way more time around him than I do. My inferiority complex says that every girl is better at being a girl than me and I hate myself for being such a frumpy weirdo with anxiety instead of a normal well-adjusted basic bitch.

I used to think I wanted to be a man. I think I just feel like I have failed at being a woman. And... I don't really know why. I want to be mad at all the other circumstances in my life right now as well but instead I am just sad. I lost a lot of weight, my skin is getting better, I bought a bunch of nice clothes, I am getting back into the things I love after a several year period of depressed inactivity - but it's not going away, the hollow feeling. Like everything will fall apart, and it kind of always does, too.

I feel like, even if I join communities or make friends or get a boyfriend, I am just a pipe cleaner they can bend until they like my shape. I don't have any trauma I can remember, no life threatening hardships. I'm just broken for no reason. I think I might genuinely be at my best when I am left alone to do my own thing in life, but I've been doing it almost the whole time. Dammit, I didn't want to cry typing this stupid shit. I hate myself so much and I don't even know why. I don't deserve it, I'm not that bad, really. But even knowing that, I still do. This sucks.

See a psychiatrist, anon. Sounds like you have depression.
>>
>>8713571
I went to a clinic where they sent me to a therapist lady that said I seemed like I had a "little bit of depression and a little bit of separation anxiety". She quizzed me about my life and taught me breathing exercises that I can't think clearly enough to use. I canceled my appointments. She would laugh and give me these looks sometimes, or say some things, I got so self-conscious that I didn't want to talk.

I think I might have been depressed my whole life. Is that possible? It has been this way for as long as I can remember.
>>
>>8713586
Sounds like you got a shit therapist. I would recommend trying again. Often when you have depression you forget about when life was better or you filter it through your current state of mind so remember it as being crappier than it was. Sounds like you've always had a tendency to it but it's really not normal...

Agree with what >>8713603 suggested: try a different therapist. If it's been a life-long thing, you may have a chemical imbalance. Not every therapist or every drug will be the right one; you need to keep trying new ones until you find something that works for you. It's hard (I know, I've been there) but when you find a solution, it is so worth the effort.

He kinda specializes in this, and well, I've always known that my knees are pretty bad. I actually have one of those! Like, a bike where you can also use your arms. But he said to wait at least 15 days and then I can start, slowly and not too hard just, taking it easy.

He said that if I need to pop them I should just do these therapeutic excercises he taught me, because if I keep making them pop and creak to "test them" I will no doubt get arthritis. Just told me I was lucky to come in before it got worse.

I don't know why but an old friend of mine that stopped talking to me months ago started asking me today if I was going to the upcoming local con. I told her yes and she said she wanted to go with me, or at least see me there. We've been really busy so I didn't have time to talk to her for a while and after that, I felt awkward trying to send her messages so I didn't do it. I'm so relieved! I can't wait to see her again, I missed her a lot and didn't know how to keep in touch with her, even though I had the means to do so.

Less good feels now, I'm getting more and more sick these days. Last week my blood pressure was so low that I passed out in the middle of the street. Since then I won't stop being on the verge of passing out, either because of my blood pressure or because of hypoglycemia. I'm really worried because everytime I ask my doctors what's going on they just redirect me to other doctors. The last one I saw is checking my hormones to see if it doesn't have anything to do with a treatment I had as a kid, but she's taking so long. I hope I'll be ok during the con because I'm loosing more and more stamina.

is your type of guy "assholes"? otherwise, anyone worth getting in a relationship with will probably not care what "weird" things you like, because they will have their own "weird' things too. you need someone who will respect you anon, no matter your type

>I would have to radically change a lot
the same again, I think your views on relationships are skewed because you harbor some self-hatred. change can be good, but no relationship needing you to "change" before getting into is worth your effort. if anything, changes about yourself can/should happen once you're in a relationship already so you can support each other and both change for the better (since being with someone gives you a new perspective)

Holy shit anon, that's awful. I know how you feel- all the photos of my old friends seem tainted by the fact that they cut me off. It was the same with me; they were in all my hobbies and went to all the same cons. If the photos make you unhappy, don't look at them. But the hobbies are still yours, as long as you're still passionate about them. Keep up your hobbies, if only out of spite. It'll fill your free hours and make you less susceptible to dwelling on it (that's what I did, anyway). I hope you know it's ridiculous for your friends to expect you to just "get over it". It's shitty to step all over someone's justifiable feelings for the sake of keeping an unstable peace. I hope things get better.

renting not an option?

Rent. Rent, try for a student house. Or get a job, even just on Sundays. Honestly I can't believe your family are kicking your out over £15. That would probably just about cover your food, I don't get the point of it? But just rent. It will save you a lot of trouble if things go tits up. Look for sharing with other young people on right move or something.

Don't think like that. Once you get a job you'll be able to make back what you spent on rent. It's true that you should buy as soon as you settle but it sounds like things are too up in the air for you right now, especially if you haven't yet graduated and are going through a turbulent time.

Why did you turn down Google? I heard it's a very demanding workplace though, and about that guy that lived in a van because the local rent is so high.
If you can get a job now, it's better to work whilst you figure stuff out. It's easier to go from a job into something else than it is to explain a long period of nothing on your cv, try to find something with lower pay but less hours if you don't know what you want right now, that will give you more time to thing about what you really want.

>>8714443

This is so unreasonable.
Aren't you aware of all the fat people on this planet with friends, and yes, even friends with average weight people? Your weight is nobody else's burden unless you make it that way.

If anything, you shouldn't want to burden your friends with crippling self worth issues.

Being fat should just be made illegal

That's not how that works. If you're a fattie in Murrica, and you're paying your own health insurance premiums, you're already overpaying for your own healthcare. Better start blaming welfare queens, jobless drug addicts, and old folks who are actually the ones who aren't paying their own way, using the ER, and making healthcare expensive for everyone.

Anon here that got help as a kid--my speech was almost unintelligible and I spoke with a garbled lisp. Four years of therapy in school and with intensive home participation--my parents rode my ass about it.

Half the problem was my mouth and jaw were fucked up. Years of orthodontia as a teenager really helped but I also backslid on some of my technique, so I still speak with a little bit of a weird sound.

I know it feels stressful and embarrassing--I still feel sick when anyone asks about the way I talk or tells me they can hear my speech problem. Lots of famous people have gone through therapy to modify accents and speech and language difficulties. If you commit to it you can sound a lot better--but it is a lifetime commitment to speak correctly ever. single. time.

and yet when you constantly see women here talking about being sugar babies or how their boyfriend just bought them thousands of dollars worth of clothes and other stuff nobody bats an eye and instead just comments on how "that's so great for you!" or "how sweet of him!"

don't bother bringing up motivation or education. it's obvious that the only thing that matters in your eyes and all women's eyes is gender. if you're a man, you exist to work and earn money that you give to women. if you're a woman, you exist to receive free money and only have to work for fun if you feel like it, never to actually support yourself. that's how you think. and you lash out at anyone who disagrees.

>if you're a woman, you exist to receive free money and only have to work for fun if you feel like it

...except in the case of the story which sparked your tantrum, the woman is the one thinking of her financial viability, hence her mention of needing a second job while she has increasing anxiety towards the bf who isn't motivated to get a second job, or a car, and blows his income on trinkets.
If this scenario hits too close to home for you then just say so, but you really shouldn't bring up irrelevant scenarios to justify your rage when they're clearly not applicable. Have some logic and compose yourself.

I only have a few older dresses left on my wish list to knock out and I've kept up with the new releases I like. I've been really lucky so far and never dealt with a rotten seller or gotten a used dress in bad condition yet either. Just a few more...*crosses fingers*

>>8714780
My tantrum? But dear foolish woman, it's your kind that was upset by the story, as well as all similar stories.

First and foremost in your mistakes, you seem to have conveniently missed the "that's how you think" that was immediately after the part of my post you quoted. It's not that that's how the world is (at least not 100% of the time), it's how you women THINK the world should be.

The reason the woman in the story and also all the women reading it are angry is because the man is spending money of useless stuff he wants while the woman (might) have to work extra to support them. You all believe it should only ever be the other way around.

Also it's hilarious how she's crying that "it's so dark" and she "feels trapped" because she might wind up having to actually support herself. You know who has to support themselves? Pretty much every guy. In fact most of you women have "100% financially independent" as one of your starting baseline requirements to even consider dating a guy. Yet you don't see them crying about how unfair the world is over it.
>>
>>8714942
Are you retarded? If a woman is financially independent, why shouldn't the man pull his own weight and be independent too? Fucking pathetic, maybe you've been too coddled by mommy in your basement.
>>
>>8714950
Why do none of you ever give a shit when the genders are reversed? Why do men always HAVE to be financially independent but if a woman doesn't work at all, or does work but spends money excursively on herself while the man foots all the actual bills for the both of them none of you ever care, or comment on how "great" of a relationship they have?

>you women

Crying about having to be independent and how others expect you to take adult responsibilities is so unsightly no matter what gender is doing it. Feeling upset because you want to work a relationship with someone who has backwards priorities is a different ballgame. I've been there, and it does feel like you will never get anywhere when all your boyfriend wants to do is throw money at stupid shit, especially when people like you assume all the woman's money doesn't go to bills and shit and you just assume she must also spend frivolously because LOL WOMEN. You sound like one of those people who whines about how hard white male losers have it.

>you women

Jeez you miss the point so often I wonder if you're doing it on purpose.
I never said she isn't supporting herself. Or that anyone should or shouldn't have to. I'm just pointing out the blatant gender double standard you women (yes, ALL you women) have when it comes to it.
Lets think about that word you used. "Manchild". I'm sure you use that word a lot to try and discredit and dismiss any man who ever disagrees with you about anything ever. But I bet not once in your entire life (or any of you womens lives) have you used or even thought of the word "Womanchild". Because women have a double standard (well technically the have tons but lets just focus on this one for now). In your mind if a man isn't independent then he's a failure, and has to be mocked. But when a woman isn't independent you don't see her as a failure. You don't see anything wrong with her not being independent at all. This is your double standard. You believe that one group of people, because of how they were born, should be held to a different and much harsher standard than another group of people who were born a different way. And you somehow see nothing wrong with this and no reason to change, because you simply care much less about men than your own kind. It's why when stories like this are posted you all rush to tell the girl to dump her boyfriend, but if the reverse story happens and a girl talks about how her boyfriend makes all the money and pays for everything you all congratulate her, and would certainly never think to tell the boyfriend to dump her because she's a womanchild.

I have a really short fuse with smug and condescending nerds. Working in IT, I gotta put up with them nonetheless. I've developed what I call a "work face".

Just convince yourself that the people you work with are not your friends and that what they say matters only in relation to whatever you're working on at the moment.

I had some anxiety problems that made it hard to deal with situations like that. What really helped was when my doctor prescribed me some beta blockers. They just deal with the physical symptoms of anxiety, like sweating and heartbeat, but I noticed that once my face didn't get red and my heart didn't explode, I just wasn't that nervous anymore.

>>8715148
Anyone who's payed any attention to threads like this (or any conversations women have in general) can clearly see that I am 100% correct about the hypocritical double standard women have when it comes to criticizing and mocking men who can't or don't fully support themselves while giving other women a free pass or sometimes even praise for mooching money and resources off of a man.

Anyone, that is, who isn't biased towards women in every possible situation to the point of being blind to any flaw they might have or bad thing they might do. So women and whiteknights like you can't see it, unless you're willing to make even some tiny effort to look outside the "women are wonderful" mindset you've spent your entire life being indoctrinated to believe in. Though I find the likelihood of any of you doing that to be quite low.

Now go on, show me what incredibly clever and original personal insult you will avoid actual discussion with next.

>>8715261
You sound like you're a self-centered sixteen year old. You admit that this girl had nothing to do with your sleeze of a boyfriend deciding to sleep around, so instead of holding him accountable you just decide to project all of your insecurities and anger onto her? Because omg HOW DARE SHE share the same interests as you HOW DARE. Also the winter ball somehow belongs to you? Are you delusional?
>>
>>8715277
I've held him plenty accountable. I've gotten out everything I've had to towards him. But Ive never gotten to say a thing about this girl. Isn't that the point of my post? That I know it's not her fault, but I'm irrationally angry regardless? It's not about a HOW DARE SHE, it's more about how close to me she was all along without me even knowing it. I don't give a fuck what she's into, but it's the idea that this whole time we've gone to the same cons, and been in the same chatroom, but I had no idea who she was until now. What the fuck are you reading?

Also, I don't give two shits about the ball and I never fucking claimed it belonged to me anon. Jesus. Once again, it's about the fact that she was so close to me without me ever knowing it, and for something that I was only into because I was heads over heels for my boyfriend at the time.
>>
>>8715281
>I don't give two shits about the ball

I believe that because if you honestly think that cgl x fa happened solely because of your fanart, you're terribly new and delusional. More known anons than you have been drawing that pairing for past winter balls and also "I loved my effay boyfriend and was self inserting us!" you do realize /fa/ and /cgl/ are SIBLINGS, right?
>>
>>8715285
Yeah, they've been drawing them for years, and this year's everything was strongly in favor of other pairings up untIl the OC stared coming in. Okay, whatever. I made a self centered and delusional claim in the middle of being insanely distresses and whiny. But if I can't even have hatred for a girl that flirted with my taken man, while being in a four year long relationship of her own, then that's ridiculous.

If anyone you should hate, it's your taken man who developed feelings for her. Who's to say that he won't develop feelings for another girl that bats her eyelashes at him now?
>>
>>8715295
Like I said, I've already taken out all my hatred at him. I have no trust in him anymore, and no faith in the relationship, and won't for a long long time. But I can talk to him; I can vent about him. I can't talk to her. That's why I'm posting exhausted rambling feelings on an anonymous messageboard instead.
>>

>dear foolish woman

>>
>>8715289
Okay then why didn't you vent about THAT as opposed to "omg this girl my BF flirted with was in the SAME CHAT AS ME!!1! For the event ~I~ drew the art for!!" Your original rant sounds petty as fuck - the whole bit about the fanart is still pretty stupid but it would have been important to include details about how you hate her as a person as opposed to how you hate her for being an object your BF tried to chase. I get that you didn't mean for it to come off so childish but even for a vent it was pretty superficial.

>>8715397
Because, as I've already explained, the main part that got me was how close she was to me. I really could have worded it better, but I meant it in a way like this was something I was involved in that I didn't know she was a part of, and something I was only involved in because of my feelings for my boyfriend, which I found ironic. That's all I meant by it. It's the same feeling when you find out someone you grew up around ended up on the news or something. Like "this whole time I knew them".
Like I said, I fucked up with the phrasing and wrote out some pieces of my thoughts but not the others, which made it focus in weird places, but I'm running off no sleep and I already deleted it once I reread it.

It will still be there when you can afford accessories but I always think this is a little shortsighted not to buy just a couple of fewer dresses per year and properly finish out existing coords. You can have the loveliest Lolita dress ever but if the coord isn't finished (or good) then you don't ever look that nice in it so what's the point even?

shh it's fine anon, you can still be cute and tall, iktf though. iktf.
But fuck, you're going to be a goddamn princess or magical girl or whatever you want,i imagine i'm floating and that's why i ""tower"" over some people. I've seen moderrus looking like fragile dolls and being kawaii as fuck, you just have to adapt it so it fits your body nicely, especially if you are skinny that's a blessing!!
>tl;dr shut the fuck up you're fucking cute and can be a mahou shoujo purinsessu whatever your height you can still be a cutie
For example i think Chokelate is adorable, she suits elegant stuff better but the way she acts,it's totally qt to me. Also to maybe "look shorter" if you truly wish, try big things that will make you look smaller liker oversized sweater ands cardigans? a biiiig bed and fluffy sheets? shoes with rounded toe part are nice too and flats or "kitten" heels. Also:
>i knew a girl from the internet

>>
>>8715915
Thank god I live in Lyon and not in Paris but I'm still scared shitless. My little sister has a friend there though so I'll ask her if she's ok later. As if the beginning of the year wasn't shitty enough.

That said,I feel like most people who say things about muslims in these circumstances are total outsiders of tje situation. Whe don't even know who's behind this yet anyway. I'm a maghrebi girl and even I find these comments weird because right now is not the time, even though it's true we'll have an even shittier reputation because of this,mainly because of racism, rumors, etc. At least it's still better than what I've seen during the attack in January like people excusing the culprits because "they're oppressed algerian POC uwu" please fuck off that's basically implying that us muslim north africans are terrible human beings and that we shouldn't be held accountable what we do as if we were babies. Jesus fucking christ I'm still mad.

I'm scared that this kind of attacks will happen in my city some day. That's one of my biggest worries right now.
>>
>>8715930
I hope your sister's friend is fine. I'm already trying to contact my own friend.

And yeah it's annoying because people are essentially instantly shutting down any discussion on the cause because "U CAN"T SAY BAD THINGS" and I'd rather wait for more information myself anyway.

>also people guilt tripping "I DIDN"T HEAR YOU PRAY OVER BEIRUT" what the fuck is wrong with some people

And yeah I heard racism against muslims is pretty bad in France so I hope it wont retaliate towards them but I hope the families of the victims will be able to grief properly.
>>
>>8715938
Yeah it's pretty bad and it's also very different from what it seems like in the US, hence why people say wrong things about France. A bunch of maghrebi people are in France because of colonialism and historical reasons overall for example, which changes a lot of things. Not all Muslims are the same either, I bet some of them would call me too westernized to be on because I don't fast (medical problems) during ramadan and I don't wear a veil because it's not mandatory anyway, and if anything,it's more something that depends on generations and regions. Most people practice just because it's a habit and not necessarely because of their believes.

By the way, I didn't say why it made me so mad that the culprits of the attack in january were excused in tumblr was because they kept saying that they werent French even though they were. They had the both the French and Algerian nationalities and they're of Algerian descent. Does the notion of two nationalities at once exist in the US, because it felt like an american posted this back then.
>>
>>8715970
I'm EU but I get what you mean. And yeah I've seen terrorist apologist from tumblr but also some muslim communities which is a really terrifying thought to be honest.

I mean I can't believe some people are so hard trying to be politically correct they're willing to say that killing dozens of innocent people is because evil white people said mean things.
>>
>>8715978
Joke on them, most Muslims disagree with them because it's common sense that murder is wrong.
>>
>>8715930
I'm completely with you on this, it pisses me off that the only time some people seem to show sympathy towards muslims is when there is a terrorist attack, as if that's the only situation in which you would ever encounter one. And then they act like they're saints for not being "prejudiced".

Thankfully my family are on the left bank and wouldn't be out late, but still, it's been a shitty night.
>>
>>8715938
The guilt tripping is the fucking worst. Hundreds of people dying is not a time to get on your moral high horse.
>hurrrrrr how come you're concerned about france if you weren't concerned about beirut
So I should be ashamed of being more concerned of things happening in a country physically and culturally closer to mine. How dare I. Our ill advised 'compassion' is one of the factors that made us end up in this mess in the first place and it sure as hell won't prevent future attacks like this happening.

It's okay to have some fear anon, and I hate I can't even express any of it without half of the people I know instantly hating my guts for it.

I mean they're all RTing shit like "don't blame all muslims!!" and "Don't attack refugees" way more then any actual news reports which is one thing.
But then I saw a tweet about how someone said they were annoyed by all the France tweets and while I do not deny that they were being a massive asshole, the person reposting the tweets decided this was white privilege. Because at a time like this it is most important to pull out your political agenda.

I know what you mean. But at this point it just makes me angry because that gets said during every terrorist attack and I don't see this 'don't blame all muslims' thing doing much, well then maybe it's time to take a stand on people who come here and are offered a better life while remaining completely ungrateful to the country that gave them those opportunities in the first place. The west of Europe still has a lot to work on of course, but it's almost like they're making us out to be the bad guys.
Sorry, I probably sound pretty callous, but the thing is, I'm Polish and I don't even have many ties to France and yet the whole event shook me up pretty badly. The thought of this happening in Warsaw fucking terrifies me.

I'm from west europe and honestly I don't think these people understand that yelling how you shouldn't blame muslims isn't doing shit. People who already think muslims are bad will not suddenly stop thinking it and people who don't will not suddenly start blaming random muslims.

I mean from today onwards there only has to be one incident at a refugee center caused by the native population and people will scream how everyone in europe is a racist again.

I'm just kind of amazed at this point that people don't understand that letting people in europe with fuckall control on who they are is a bad idea because there can and will be bad people between them.

Keep in mind that 3 days after 9/11, a muslim was killed by a racist-ass fucker in America because of 9/11. But to be real, I don't think the type of people who would attack any middle eastern person they see would be the type of person NOT to blame muslims for something.
>>
>>8716071

>>
>>8716067
There has been WAY more than one incident, seriously?

But I agree completely regarding that attitude, it's not like the populace is going to rise and lynch muslims because of a terrorist attack. This is France ffs, they have pretty solid convictions compared to most of the west. What you will have is a minority of deluded extremist pricks who will use this to support their trash, and these fools will give them a platform and go on like they're the voice of fucking Europe, because it makes them look like the measured lot. Meanwhile back in reality those affected are too busy dealing with the tragedy of so many losing their lives for nothing to care about this ideological shit.

I know how you feel. Take it from me, building a life out of love is really unstable and you need to try to pave a road where you can rely on yourself first and foremost, because at the end of the day even if someone loves you, all you really have is yourself.

I recommend opening up to someone you trust who doesn't judge you and seems pretty grounded who can handle listening to you and really talk to them. It seems like you have a lot of self doubt which is causing these conflicts. Getting a new perspective and having that person to reach for when insecurities are popping up might help a lot, especially if they are close to you or not directly involved in the thick of things in regards to the tank you are struggling in. If I have felt what you have, it sounds like you need to heal and only two things can help that: that kind of person I described and also being able to honestly stand on your own two feet all by yourself while going in a direction you feel good about.

Almost nobody follows these rules word by word wtf are you talking about. And this applies to almost evey single religion that are still practiced nowadays.

How would you know that it's because of our "compassion"? Maybe I missed the news but the culprit(s) are unknown as of now. And I'msure it'll be like in January and a French person would actually be the culprit (regardless of race, ethnicity, religion etc.) So shut up and wait for more news before speaking.

I do agree that people trying to guilt trip you sucks, so fat it hasn't happened to me because I don't follow idiots on social media anymore. And if you're European, it's normal that the news focus on France right now anyway.

In France I'm pretty sure Maghrebi people are going to be targeted more than Middle Easterns, especially because we're the "stereotype"for violent Muslims there (thank you so fucking much colonialization /s)

ISIS just claimed the attacks but desu they'll claim anything if it'll start WWIII for them
>>
>>8716916
It was said in the news that it was Daesh that was mostly likely responsible but I don't much about them so I won't add anything else. Also, a bunch of people that are looked after by the government were born and raised in France so them being in France doesnt have much to do with "compassion".
I can't bring myself to inform myself about the attacks anymore, it makes me feel sick like I'm gonna throw up or something.

You are off your rocker.

And the only solution is to move to a country where people are taller.

Follow up to this: after repeatedly asking for a reliable source for his claims, I was accused of being a SJW for not blindly believing tabloids and blog posts. He unfriended me when I stopped being nice. Good fucking riddance.

She seems nice but also the kind who would probably make a big joke about it to everybody without trying to be mean because she's so outgoing

>>8717759
How do you know he hates lolita, have you actually talked about it? because lots of guys really hate OTT sweet but they don't even notice gothic or classic is lolita until somebody tells them. IMHO it's not your problem and if he doesn't want to stick around because of clothes then he's not worth it anyway. Make sure you show an interest in his things if he stays.
>>
>>8719220
He used the ancient "It looks like kid clothes, I'm not a pedo" argument.
Despite the fact hat I wear ott sweet like it's 2011 forever, and children wear whore clothes now, now giant skirts.
We agree on most other things, and I never give him shit about his awful anime art, I pretend like it's good.
But he insists lolita is creepy.

Also kill that bitch if she tells anyone.
>>
>>8719228
If he draws anime, you can probably argue he's a pedo some other way desu. It's surprising that a anime fan doesn't like it though.
Just wear it, if he's too simple to form a legit argument then he's probably too simple to leave you over it.

I'll cut this bitch I swear.
>>
>>8717759
Ditch the guy. Got dumped this year after a 9 year relationship where the guy hated lolita and then met someone else who thinks I'm cute no matter what I wear and now really appreciates lolita because he finds me cute in it, there is so much better out there anon. Those high school feels are lying to you.

A friend of mine who is a degenerate like me announced that he got a girlfriend yesterday. He is about three years younger than me, and we both love hentai and its ridiculous fetishes. Neither of us are bad looking and we're both relatively poor, doing what we can in order to move ahead in our lives.

I genuinely feel happy for him, but I also became green with envy. "Someone like me was able to find someone, so what's keeping me?" And after a few thoughts about self-worthlessness later, I jacked off for a few hours and cried myself to sleep.

That night, I had a dream. In it, I was an older man, handsome, wealthy, and I had a large, beautiful house. My mother was coming home after buying groceries and I told her to invite random people over on the way. Soon, my home became filled with strangers. We ate, drank, and everyone commented on how delicious the food was and how they'd like to come again. It really was delicious, but it quickly became insipid after a few bites. I began to realize that I was not happy, and that no matter how many people I surrounded myself with, I was still lonely inside. My happiness was like a bright spark, like how I feel after attending a cosplay gathering.

When I woke up, I also realized that no matter how much porn I collect, I will never be able to sate my sexual frustration like this. Now, I am here.

To keep it cosplay related, we're thinking about cosplaying to a con together, but I do not want to have to see his girlfriend.

Friend, you sound bitter as hell. I really recommend you get out more, look around for clubs and if you have the time then somewhere you can volunteer.

>tfw too busy to wear lolita or do anything nice
>stress causing me to buy things to feel better
>don't have time to wear the things I'm buying and it's making me more stressed
>can't really afford all these things either, so even more stressed
I'm trying to wear things more often but I'm just too tired in the mornings to make an effort.
>>
>>8719759
I am, I have, but I am motivated to continue to insist. Thank you, anon. I will continue to try to find belonging in my new environment.

I wish I had read this earlier. I am pregnant. Boyfriend is super excited about having kids.
I am not.

>plans for twinning first time

I totally understand and if I was her I'd do the same. I just... wouldn't haven picked this dress for just me solo and I really had my hope set on going together. I guess this is frustration.

One of the few cons in my city most likely won't happen because of the terrorist attack in Paris. Fuck, that was one of the very few things I was looking forward, especially since I wanted to bring my little sister with me and let her choose a birthday present there.

I feel like I am that odd person in my comm that everyone secretly hates but is too nice to tell them to GTFO.
I'm pretty socially awkward. I mostly just nod my head and don't have much to say
>I feel like we are just dragging you along
Every meet one of the girls indirectly has something not so nice to say about my outfit, not directly to me but it will come up in conversation
>I hate (the color I am wearing) in lolita
>I hate pink in lolita, oh but it looks so nice on you I just don't like it on me!
Comments at the last meet hit me a bit closer to home and I just don't know if it is just my anxiety telling me that everyone hates me, or if I should just gtfo. I used to think that I was just taking general statements too personally but it keeps happening and I just don't know.

I havent really been hanging out with anyone but my fiance since distancing myself from my comm, but my best friend that lives out of state is coming to stay with me for a few days, and I am so excited for the good female company, I love being able to just chill and smoke and wear lolita with her and not have any worries.

Thanks for that, asshole. I'd have thought someone as social justice over weight in cosplay (this is not even the first time he's talked about it, the last time it came up there was also a sermon on racism in the cosplay community) would know not to fucking out someone as trans in front of a group of people.
I'm going to spend the rest of my night being disgruntled and angry.

Like with stocks, ride the wave until you see the value begin to decrease. Then, you get rid of it, invest into another market, and start over.

That's what I would do, if I had a girlfriend. Both parties are better off this way, and we break off before we can't stand each other anymore.

I'm so sorry anon, how did they go missing and how long has it been? Maybe there's some hope. That situation sounds horrible.
