Have any men here ever done like a big makeover in their life?

I am 23 years old. Most of the clothes I own were bought because they were on sale. I dress like a slob. I feel like I didn't really grow out of childhood in the ways I dress. I kinda want to go out and just replace my entire wardrobe with good stuff and develop sort of a fashion sense. It feels kinda faggy to put so much attention onto my looks, but I feel like it is necessary to truly become a serious adult. I kind of want to burn my old self if that makes any sense.

Have any of you ever pulled something like this off successfully? Any tips? Where should I start?

I'm about to start my second year of college and I've realized that all my clothes are the shitty ones I wore in high school so I've been doing research online and learning about fashion.

All throughout high school I would just wear gross grey hoodies and jeans and I cringe thinking back at how shit I dressed but whatever, I've recently been buying some nice fitting shirts, some new jackets, and new pants that would fit me better.

What really matters is how well the clothes fit rather than what color/pattern they are. You can pull off basically anything with enough confidence btw so just go experiment.

>first of all. have money.

>second off all have an idea how you wanna dress
I want to dress like I have my act together

>someone with a kind of fashion sense but is respectful enough to follow your direction
I kinda sort of have two friends like this. One of them wouldn't meet the "respectful" part, but I feel too awkward to ask the other friend. I don't regularly meet them irl either.

>>22606613
>Not too baggy
This is a big issue right, partly because I lost a lot of weight several years ago, so many of my clothes are way too big now.

I feel like a big issue is that I don't really have any good friends whom I regularly meet irl who I can rely on to dress better

I slept with a girl my age at work. she's married with a toddler. not much in the face department but she was petite with a fine ass and nice legs. we added each other on insta and we started talking more and more. she let me know that she's never been with a toned guy, I said I can help her out and we went to my place and banged during lunch for a few months. she was almost caught because her husband brought her lunch one day and she wasn't at work and she came up with a weird story. we haven't fucked since.

I really dont think it is submissive to eat pussy. Regardless of that I make her come from foreplay alone. Second time at my apartment she actually told me a bit embarressed she didnt think she could come that many times in one night and that I must have magic fingers because even just me touching her can make her go crazy.

Granted it is still teh honeymoon phase but even just being apart a day or two she tells me all she could think about was me fucking her and she cant get it out of her mind. I think the power dynamic is pretty clear from that alone, I love her but I could walk away and be fine she is starting to have a real obsession about me.

How retarded do my interests have to be to attract a gf. "Yeah I like weed, board games, yoga, video games, saving money, nature and shitting my pants." This can't be real. There's no fucking way girls care about what your interests are, right? But then again, I look at the couples who attend ICP concerts and it really makes me think some brain damage wouldn't hurt. And then I see people going vegan just because their boyfriend is. So my theory is that retardation becomes contagious once the infectee becomes attracted to a retarded carrier. Thoughts?

as a kid i had wracking, constant anxiety. just endless terror. and i had affluent parents, so i saw a variety of mental health professionals - psychiatrists and therapists. i basically was in mental healthcare from age 10 to 19.
i found that none of these helped a whole lot.
but what did help (in my case) was gaining life experience. going to bars. working shitty jobs. getting rejected by girls. doing to university. getting into fights. traveling. with each new experience, life seemed less daunting. i gained a stronger sense of self and became a bit more resilient. the outside world doesnt impinge on my inner life as much now.

How do I care for my depressed and hurting gf?

My girlfriend suffers from IBS and some form of depression ( she won't be specific ) She used to take Prozac for it and now she's on Wellbutrin

I know that both of these meds are horrendous and only amplify the pain she feels from IBS

Also I did some research on Wellbutrin and learned that even if she misses a few minute window between doses she goes through intense withdrawals

I feel really inadequate because I drive 30 miles to see her, and when I get there she's just a depressed poop that doesn't wanna get out of bed, outside and eat or anything. I don't know what to do besides help her with chores and bring book to her in bed give her a back rubs and hold her. I feel like I should give her some advice or do something to motivate her but everytime I open my mouth she seems hurt or offended.

Yesterday she lashed out at me when I tried getting her to move out of bed and eat something. She said that I was only nice to her to get into her pants and went on a tangent about the patriarchy. I simply got up and cooked her a breakfast and she came to and apologized.

I feel like this has gone on long enough. I also noticed that she's balding, she's become vary skinny and developed bedsores. I hate seeing her fall apart like this. Worst of all she reminds me of my mom when she went through cancer and passed. I feel just as helpless. Her friends, parents and roommate don't seem to care at all. What do I do /adv/? how do I help her through this?
>>
Remember that you're not her therapist and that you shouldn't act like one. If she has problems to fix, you can support her with your presence, but it's not up to you to fix them.

That aside, something you can and should help her with is exercise. Go take a walk or run together. Get her to sign up for exercise courses of her choice.

Also, what about her eating habits? She needs her omega3, D3 and A vitamins for her hair, so fresh vegetables and fish (or cod liver oil)
>>
i have no clue but, how about some mild torture? like pouring cold water over her to get her out of the bed or kidnapping her to have a walk outside.
if its a bad advice feel free to tell me.

I'm changing degrees so now I will finish a year later than I otherwise would, which means I will have to get youth allowance for students-austudy extended by a year or I will have to work (I will die before I work). Do I have to apply for a new claim and probably wait months for it to go through, or can my current claim be changed over? I already changed before and told the centrelink woman when I went in that I had, but she just nodded and said yeah. No updates were made in the system whatsoever. So I don't know what that was about and how anal they are about this stuff.

every time i see a couple with kids they look like they fucking hate and resent each other and are exhuasted af. and everyone complains about their children. theres little to no reward and they literally take up all of your time now. it literally becomes your entire life.

men who "want a family" just want a stupid bitch who will be stupid enough to raise their kids and be their slave. and men want kids just to feed their ego and duplicate themselves /spread their seed (narcissitic af).

women who wants kids are idiotic brainwashed masochists who watch too many hollywood movies and do zero research into having children before doing it.

not only that but im 100% sure that the reason most women are so neurotic is because theyve had children. they literally become even more brain damaged and emotionally volatile.

cant people see that families dont lead to happiness? and at least 50% of people get divorced? thats not what a family is. and who knows how much of the remaining 50% are even remotely happy.

It's because they both work a job, so neither of them have the energy to deal with it. This is why nannies existed for successful couples in the past, but they don't have enough money for that.

I know you probably think that's cringe in 2020, but the fact is there is someone, even if you believe they're dead and gone for a couple millenia, who really cares/d about you no matter what you do or did. Without even knowing who you were.

Please no bucket crabs. I've been around here. I can spot them well enough.

I know this board isn't for "bawwwing" or whatever and I'm not sure if that is what I am doing, but can someone please help me in some way or other?


Why can't I take care of myself and now keep wishing I could have a wife help me with my life? Is it because I'm lazy and incompetent that I feel like I can't take care of myself on my own?

I mean, I guess I do also have ADHD so maybe I am pretty incompetent... I keep wishing there was someone here to talk to me and help me with dishes and even just remind me what I need to do.
I don't really get it and I feel like maybe it doesn't matter anyway, because I'm such a fat, short piece of shit. I must be, because if I wasn't ugly and terrible, I would have friends and everything would've gone differently.

I tried to diet recently to cut off my "skinny fat" (which I'm actually now thinking isn't the case I think my fat deposits are mostly in my arms for whatever reason). But I made like a bunch of mistakes and I think it just made me slightly fatter because I was stupid enough to let a few random /fit/ anons troll me into thinking I should bulk and I got used to seeing those numbers and thinking that way when I should be losing weight so I'm not so gross any more.

I feel like i'm just going to get fat and there's nothing I can do about it. I feel like I'm already really fat and short. That's not a particularly logical line of thought... I mean, its true, but its not that true.... but its also fucking true.

I just feel so horrible and hopeless. I don't even know what's going on. I don't think I've felt it this bad before in this particular way.

Okay, so this is the point where if you have insecurities, can you please detach yourself from that when you read this or just not read it...

I feel like eventually, either general wear from psychological shit or not taking care of myself well enough will lead to me losing even my fleeting positive quality I purportedly have according to some people of being attractive. I don't know why people lie to me about that, but I do know that I feel like I need to be attractive to have friends. I mean what else do I even have? How else could I get people to wanna talk to some lonely piece of shit like me? I could see myself just being this pudgy and/or otherwise unkempt/wrinkly/whatever guy standing around awkwardly. it doesn't work. No one wants to talk to that.
And its not enough and I suspect its going away soon.

1. If you want to lose fat, count your calories.
Calculate your tdee, eat 500 calories less than that.
Keep track of EVERYTHING you eat with an app.

2. You can't take care of yourself because you feel like you're not worth it. You feel like you're worthless because you don't do the things that make you feel like you're worth something.
The "easiest" way to get out of this circle is to stop waiting to feel different about yourself and do things that are good for you regardless of how you feel about yourself.

That means, exercise, socialize, hygiene, style, diet.
Really care for yourself as you'd do for someone else.
