AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

I am here to confess that I sometimes crush on /snow/ lolcows because I have a big gay saviour complex and some of these OF hookers are just the most pathetic women on earth. Shayna and that 'looking for a mummy' chick would both get it. I know I can't fix them but god damn, the challenge appeals to me for some fucked up reason.
>>
>>10686659
pure masochism
>>
>>10686659
Maternal instincts I'm assuming mixed with desire? My mother is similar, she's a retired cop that ends up dating low income women or former prisoners in an attempt to save them from themselves. Some were successful, others not so much.
>>
>>10686659
o shit do you have a link to the thread about the looking for a mummy chick? I think i might know the one. i used to go on penpal websites when i was like 14 and saw some of her whack ass profiles on several. she was a really pretty blonde lady who wrote essays-long profile descriptions about how she doesn’t want sex/a relationship and just wants to be mothered… she’s surfaced on Reddit too. it has to be the same one
>>
I love pieces with full shirring and it breaks my heart seeing that they all get purchased/bid on by 130 cm bust fatties for the sake of it, I just want my comfy michelin man pieces. They aren't supposed to be worn by landwhales who stretch them out to the point you don't even konw that there's ever been shirring at all.
>>
>>10686667
I don't I'm afraid because it's old as fuck, you might still be able to find it if you go wayyy back on snow, but yes that's the girl. Had a hamster YouTube channel that was quite popular too.
>>
>>10686670
Agreed. Shirring is a super cute design element, makes pieces very comfy to wear and only looks good on those who would fit the garment without it. Makes me sad that fatties buy them just to stretch the elastic to its absolute limit.

i think im falling out of love with lolita. I still find the fashion so cute, but i'd rather be buying the other alt clothes i like to wear much more. I think I just got in over my head when i first started buying for my wardrobe. I can never decide if i look nice in it.
I've been thinking of selling my wardrobe, and only keeping around 3-4 of my main pieces, but also the effort i went to for acquiring the pieces i have keeps putting me off.
Any advice gulls??
>>
>>10686682
You could always just keep your dresses and start buying other clothes. That way if you ever feel like you want to slip on a dress, you can. Unless you're strapped for cash and need bill money. In that case go-ahead and sell.
>>
>>10686687
I don't really NEED the money, it'd probably just go back into buying other clothing anyway, i guess i just feel guilty having all these pieces and not wearing them
>>
>>10686682
I would sell them if I were you. What's the point in keeping clothes that you no longer feel joy from wearing? Personally I feel much better when I sell things I'm no longer attached to, knowing that someone else currently cherishes them as much as I used to makes me happy.
>>
>>10686694
i think i'll bite the bullet and sell them, thanks for your advice anon
>>
>>10686659
>Shayna
I used to know a really pathetic lolita with this name who’s a total slut and made everyone uncomfortable by going on about kinks in groups with people she barely knew. I don’t pay much attention to lolcows, but it would be hilarious if she’s been one this whole time

If you're under 40 you're mostly fine. If you're over 40 and haven't been keeping up with your skin or genetics are fucking you up, then you're better off wearing classic and toned down coords.

Im 24 with really bad skin, kinda look like a junkie
>>
>>10686784
You're still young so you have time to fix your skin now. 30s is usually when shit begins to start actually showing age. If you don't feel like doing that, which is fine, there's always makeup.

If you have the space you should keep them. Maybe decide again in a year if you want to sell them.
>>
>>10686788
No problem. Keep doing what makes you happy.

Ripped a hole in my OTKS. Disappointed but they were cheap so I'll just get more.

I’m a devoted Christian can’t do gay stuff sorry. Unless you’re a girl I think pegging is okay

Me too! See, we're made for each other. I demand we hold a /cgl/ wedding before I peg you, no butt stuff before marriage.

alright I couldn’t help it no more gay shit I’m napping IM NOT HERE ANYMORE don’t ruin the respected image I set up for myself pls
>>
>>10686979
BUT BEFORE I GO one more thing.
I'm sorry for being annoying all the time and posting irrelevant things.

I can't cope with my love for men so I try to talk to as many girls as I can and this is the only place I can do it. OKAY IM NOT HERE ANYMORE FOR REAL THIS TIME.
>>
>>10686980
wanna pay my medical bills for me. I’ll let you peg me too if you do
>>
hopefully getting a better-paying job soon, i have my eye on some stuff to treat myself to when i can set aside more money for lolita :o)
>>
I feel disgusted. My coworker, old enough to be my father, got fired today and decided he should call me up and ask me on a date. he is still married. He tongue tripped over his explanation of why he as a married man would ask me out, by saying something about 'papers'.
i get paid tomorrow so i'm going to cope by buying cute stuff and never picking up the phone for him again
>>
>tfw another episode of friend circle splitting drama
Why does this happen so often in the cosplay community
>>
>>10686682
Getting over the mental barrier to sell is hard but honestly it’s so freeing. What works for me is doing a first pass and pulling out a few things you won’t miss too much, say 10 items? After that first pass wait a month and pick a few more items to sell. I find it gets easier after each pass because it felt good to do it before.

I’m saying this as a hypocrite with way too many pieces I don’t wear at the moment, but I think I was happiest when I had around 10 pieces I really loved.
>>
>>10686708
Could be the same person, this one never shuts up about kink. Where are you from?
>>
My boyfriend is an asshole. This was the first year I could give him a Christmas present. Even though money is tight, I managed to sell a few things and pay for a very thought out, useful gift that I know he wanted and that would normally be way out of my budget. I spent an entire day thinking of how I want to make it look nice and cute, and get it to him in time for Christmas, since we're currently in an LDR. All I got in response was that he doesn't get why I would want to do that and how all holidays are made up. After all the effort I put into his gift, this response just crushed me and ruined any remnants of the holiday spirit still left at this shitty of a time in my life. I genuinely love him and just wanted to make him happy this holiday season.
>>
My schizo boyfriend hit me again. I wouldn't even just say hit but I'm suffering multiple pretty bad injuries right now. He's going back on medication... I don't understand how someone can threaten your life like this and say they love you. I can't even look at lolita and enjoy it anymore. I hate life.
>>
Turns out my gf was very disturbed by me and my best friend's hobby...
I can sing (somewhat well) in girlvoice and play bass and we cosplay and play songs from K-ON (I'm Mio she's Yui)
She's also jealous about her ughh
She thought that by "I like anime" meant I like stuff like Naruto and by "I like cosplay" I meant I like looking at cosplay probably.
We're finally gonna post our fude pen cover tho which is nice
>>
>>10687156

I miss when homestuck cosplay was a thing. I was too young when it was a really big thing at cons. I'm in my 20s now and would love to have the sort of fun I saw those wackos getting up to. Minus the actually bad stuff.
I think I'd make a good Jade.
Man.

>tfw all the romance is gone from dating

I don't find anyone even remotely charming anymore. Maybe it's my fault for reading too many romance stories but God damn IRL dating is so tense and at times aggressive.
>>
>>10687148
if it’s a one off incident where he’s being an asshole it might be because he doesn’t want you to waste the money you saved up on him. kinda like a uh you guys already know you love each other money is tight so you don’t have to stress about holidays to get me smthin.
>>
Current feel: was going to post a feel but this feels thread is too full of turbo grim shit, feel like my frivolous little whinge would be super entitled now, kinda relieved in a way to see how small my woes are
>>
>>10687205
>God damn IRL dating is so tense and at times aggressive
Have you considered relaxing and being less aggressive?

Tbh though there IS a "right time" for dating, nobody likes to admit it because it scares them but if you're still looking for bf/gf after like age 23 you're sifting leftovers and it's just going to get more and more grim.
>>
>>10687205
Date women. I thought romance was over for me then I met the love of my life at 28 and we do all the dates, trips, presents and mushy stuff that I've been missing.
>>
>>10687220
aint it great I hate happy feels
>>10687205
what kind of romance stories do you read. I always thought people that say they like reading romance to read romcom kdama lovey dovey type shit until I met this person and apparently the romance they read is ruby dixonverse with alien human orgies.

The fuck am I supposed to do when a LM seller ghosts me after I pay for an item and confirm my address? It's stressing me out so much, even a simple "I'm busy but will ship it by x date" would make things so much better.
>>
>>10687349
You’ll be alright, send them a message asking when they will ship it out. If no response, send another one saying you will do a chargeback if you didn’t hear from them by some date. Then do the charegback if they still didn’t ship it to you.
>>
i had a small shopping addiction, but since i've gotten my new job i've managed to put away $10,000 (not including what's going into my retirement) in 4 months! and i haven't really been buying much, either. i just put half in my savings whenever i can.

i think i posted in feels before about how i racked up $3k in lolita debt before my job started, but i'm paying that off steadily too and my credit is still good. hip hip hooray!
>>
>>10687225
I'm not aggressive, I find that men tend to be.

It's annoying having to deal with people who don't have their shit together, I just end up getting annoyed with them. "ha ha i'm so helpless I can't cook dinner or clean my room or get a job or drive myself" bitch what the fuck can you do? Worst part is I feel bad about breaking up with them not because I care about them but because I feel like I'm abandoning a retarded child in a forest. Do I just wait til I'm 30 something and hope the single mother leftovers have a career that isn't at walmart?
>>10687225

This isn't true at all wtf plenty of people get out of log term relationships at that age. 23 isn't even old you child.

Realized the other day just how much my living situation has improved from a few years ago. Used to live in an older shitty building. It was small with cramped closets and coin laundry machines. Even when we got better jobs, rapidly rising rent prices meant it wasn't really worth it to move so we stayed for a while. Whenever I wanted to do laundry, it was always a big production because it was cheaper to do multiple loads at once. And washing lolita was a pain. It meant handwashing one dress at a time in the tub and then dealing with it dripping on the laundry rack afterwards.

Since then we've moved to a different city and now live in a nicer (not luxurious or anything, but nicer) apartment complex. We have in suite laundry, walk in closets, and much more space. The other day we went out and did a ton of walking during an outing, over 4 hours, so my OP got a bit sweaty. I came home, stripped it off in the bathroom, and immediately tossed it in the washer on gentle cycle. 30 minutes later I was hanging up a damp but not dripping, perfectly clean dress, with almost zero effort on my part. I thought back to the huge pile of dresses that I would get building up bc I didn't have the space and energy to wash and dry them all as needed and I realized that will literally never happen again! It's such a good feel. I hope that every anon who's currently frustrated with their non-ideal living situation will soon be able to live somewhere that works better for their wants and needs.
>>
>>10687225
>thinking of people as leftovers
If that's your concern, everyone from 15 and up is "leftovers" or even younger. I guess you'll just die alone. Meanwhile, others have learned from their experiences and know more about themselves and other people.

>>
>>10687148
This sound less like being an asshole, and more like not having the social skills to realize such a reaction would put the other person down. I think the same thing as your bf (holidays are a meme to trick people into spending more), but I'd never react like that because the other person would feel like shit. Remove this clue (realizing it would made the other person feel like shit), and your bf could've just said what was on his head.
If you really like him and would rather not break up over a single Christmas gift, I'd suggest bringing that up with him in a friendly, non-confronting way. He might just say "damn, you were right, sorry for reacting that way after you gave me a gift".

Yeah no you don't. Even if it "looked cool" there was always another shit stirrer around the corner, and no one sealed their body paint or took the time to learn how to remove their alcohol activated paint and made it everyone else's problem. The flash chapters were fun but would have been more fun as just an interactive webcomic with cool music and graphics sometimes and not an all consuming fandom.

idk if this is /cgl/ or more /fa/ or even /fit but today I was reminded about Eugenia and I just feel really depressed.
It hits every time I see the lass because there's the part of my mind saying "I can fix her" but I know I can't, nobody can in her situation.
She seems like a nice person once you strip away the mental disorder, I just want her to be happy...
>>
>>10687937
Yeah, I still wish I had the opportunity to go have fun in cosplay with other people who enjoyed Homestuck. I remember reading the things about unsealed paint and drama and have no doubt I would have had fun just hanging out and cosplaying with a group of close friends without being completely nuts. I had a substantial group of Homestuck fan online friends at the time but they were all 3-6 years older than me and could participate in the fandom in ways I couldn't.
I slipped away from the interest as I approached adulthood but now that I'm nearing my mid 20s I just miss the passion people had for that comic, even though it resulted in several catastrophes. Nothing hits the same anymore.

good lord i need to stay away from this board. every time i see gulls talk about measurements it makes me want to die. ive spent years working hard to get from nearly 300 lbs down to 125 lbs but nah none of that matters to my broken brain, seeing people call 89 cm bust average or the biggest you can be to be thin just fucking kills me instantly. immediately makes me feel like everything ive done up to this point is worthless.
>>

Diabulimia here, that talk stirs shit up in me too

Ero lolita would result in it being bombarded by coomers. Otherwise I wouldn't mind.

>>10688075
god damn nonny diabulimia is some serious shit, I do hope you're taking care of yourself. but truly there is something about the way gulls talk about sizes and weight that sets me off like nothing else.
>>
>>10688073
As long as you're making progress don't worry about it. Use it as fuel to keep going. Unfortunately when it comes to bust, I'm at 102lb yet fit everywhere else. Be prepared and accept your bust issues even after you lose weight if you have those genetics but don't let it stop you. Getting things professionally tailored helps a lot.

>>10688083
nah I don't think i should keep going to be honest, I'm underweight for my height and my bust is 91 cm so it doesn't really end up being a problem, it just hurts to think all my progress is reduced to "still fat" in the eyes of other gulls. hurts bad man.
>>
>>10688115
Oh you're underweight? Yea you can stop. As long as you're not overweight there's just some things you can't help and that's fine. Like my mom says, people will ALWAYS find something wrong with you no matter what you do so if you're healthy and happy with yourself, pay others no mind. I mean, in the art thread someone drew a damn good masterpiece and yet anons still find flaws with it. That's just how the world is.

I do hate that I can never wear an OP because of my shoulders being so broad. That's like the one thing not even tailoring can fix.

>The Mystery of Salt Boxing
It's really simple, Anons: people start pairing up permanently at 17-18. In this period people dump each other for awhile just as a sorting mechanism, essentially, that says nothing about the quality of anybody involved. Byt the time you hit 23 or so though, people are matched up and nearly everybody good is off the market, since they've also found a good match and stick to each other. After that point, breakups mainly only happen because one person can't be satisfied with a regular good relationship, i.e. turns out to have a screw loose. The better a gf/bf you are, the less likely you are to flip out and dump/get dumped after this point. For every year the sorting repeats and the quality matches get fewer.

This is pretty much a settled fact, there are statistics from IIRC the CDC showing that either a girl marries her bf from when she was 21, or she has like a 5-10% of ever getting married at all. They can marry at any actual age, 30 or 58 or whatever but it's going to be the same relationship even if they couldn't afford to get hitched before or whatever the reason was. Obviously most of that small remaining percentage are couples who met up when the girl was 22 or 23. So. (It's a bit different for boys because girls tend to like older boys, but it obviously maps directly as if you weren't with your gf when *she* was 21, odds are you won't marry her.)
>>
>>10688279
Gonna need a source link from you because everything that I'm finding is saying the average marrying age is 28-32, has been rising and lasting longer. What it sounds like you're talking about is a statistic from the 1920s. Besides all this, you seem to think breaking up is a result of people "flipping out" when chances are people find out they just don't work together.

Marrying young is more likely to result in divorce or long term unhappy marriages, something you'll find more with your parents and grandparents who were told to marry their high school sweet heart at 18-21 only to find out that after years of being together they don't work. They usually divorce after the kids are teens to adults or stay together due to religious beliefs and pressure from family. People with more experience in being in serious relationships are more likely going to know what they want out of a person and know how they are with another person more than someone who sticks with the first person they're with. Not saying it doesn't happen, just you're a fool if you think this is the normal.

Ugh that is very relatable. I want to date other women too/I’ve never had a gf but apps feel like more of the same awkward social media mess that I’m trying to pull away from in general. I also live in a place where a lot of foreign residents are here short term and the people who aren’t see dating other women as temporary before they settle down with a guy because it’s expected culturally.

I’m sure you’re fine and it takes time etc. etc. but that’s frustrating as hell. I hope you find your special someone soon.

>tfw I went on date with several women but I always felt too shitty for them so I went back into the closet.
They are too pretty and I am so scared of commitment/intimacy. With men you can just cruise, they'll futurefake and lie to you anyway, so no reason to be concerned, plus they'll fuck anything including pumpkins.

Now, women are more selective and I feel really bad about my body when I look at other women because I feel like I smell, look fat and ugly even when I've lost weight/am freshly showered.
If you were ghosted, it might have been me because I'm inconsiderate and often will show up on dating sites to try but then give up

HER is utter dogshit. I met my gf on Bumble but irl lesbian events are the way to go, imo. If you're looking for some general support/lesbian online friends to vent to abt this kinda thing, I'd be happy to drop the link to a comfy wlw discord server I run.

Emotional manipulation. I don't know what mental problems he has, but him hitting you is unacceptable even if it can be blamed on his mental health. I'd suggest you get help from friends and/or family to help you move out (if you live together), or break contact with him in general if you don't. If he is manipulative, or threatening you that he will kill himself, or saying you are a horrible person, don't listen and mov on no matter how much it will emotionally hurt you.

I'm a psychology major in the third year (out of four) and I've slowly become more and more disillusioned with my job prospects. I've been flipping through comments on Rufflechat about what other lolitas work as, and most jobs seem to fall under IT or marketing.
>Study something hard, until you understand, then you'll get a good job and can buy more brand
I regret choosing such a general degree. Psychology isn't as easy as I thought it would be. Even though I enjoy it, it really isn't great for getting a job. Clinical psych is fascinating, but the Masters programme is notoriously hard to get into, and I'm unsure if I really want to get into it when I/O psych looks equally lucrative. I'm taking the I/O psych intro module next semester, so hopefully that works well and I can be content with chasing after a masters in I/O. Otherwise...I guess I'll have to compete with the Business students in marketing, and the Data Science students in market research. I tried learning to code, and will continue learning for fun, but I doubt I have an affinity for it. FML.

I almost went for psychology back in college but was told by some older people in my class there's little money to be made in it. Now I'm in IT and gotta say, it's fuck easy work for decent money.

bf got a psychology degree, realized it was useless unless he wanted to be an HR person (or get a masters) and grinded code instead. he makes a lot of money for what he does. so do i... i really don't deserve the salary i make working in cyber lol. you don't even have to know how to code, there's so many paths in IT/tech that you can go down--just pick and dedicate.

I got so depressed and fat during lockdown that I barely fit into my brand and don't even recognize myself anymore. I was honestly feeling suicidal at one point, once it hit me that this is what I look like now and I can't even enjoy wearing the clothes I love.

Actually today, a customer got uppity with me because I referred to the person she was speaking with before as "they". Not because he's a snowflake or anything, I've just been in the habit of using "they" for years over the phone because some customers get pissed when you call them "ma'am" or "sir." Not even a trans thing, some old ladies sound like men and vice versa and they get pissed. But today this customer went on a rant about gender.

I talked about this with one of them and they said that having a 3rd bathroom invalidates transwomen as women. There's no reasoning with these people.

If they call themselves trans then they aren't a woman. Trans =/= woman

Literally, if you're running around calling yourself TRANS you are NOT a woman. Those are TWO completely different identities.

I had a dream a few weeks ago where I was walking down a staircase with this guy I went to high school with, haven't seen him in years IRL. Anyhow, in the dream I was afraid because the stairs were made of metal grate type material and we were really high up and I'm afriad of heights.

So I closed my eyes and hugged him really close, and then he hugged me back as we walked down the stairs. It felt so real. I just want a hug guys. I have all this affection and no bf to give it to, but I have trust issues that prevent me from dating.

There is a 17 year gap between my youngest sibling and myself. Lately, he wants to video call and watch Dragon Ball together. On about the third day in:
>"Hey anon, can I ask you a question?"

>In other words, are you doing this out of sibling obligation or because you like watching dragon ball with me specifically
>Tell him watching db with him is one of the highlights of my day, which is true.
>Feel a weird squeeze of heartache after
He's such a stoic and rational guy that when he shows this side of himself my heart hurts. I haven't been the best sister to my siblings, but they're a huge reason why I push myself to be a better woman.

I think trans people themselves have this confused. Back in my day, trans was seen as a mental illness and trans people were aware of that. They genuinely hated that they hated their bodies and private parts. Surgery was to help them cope and that was understandable. They knew even after they were going to be different and that was okay, what mattered was how they felt, not how people treated them (unless it was abuse obviously).

Now it's turned into a "mood" and everyone must adhere to your mood swings. Now you have people who aren't mentally ill, just conflicting with societies stereotypes about gender and thinking that if you don't agree, you're trans. It's stupid. If you like pink, dresses and makeup, you're a woman. If you like wearing pants and sports, you're a man. It's like we're back in the 50s.

Is it though? Not even counting the hundreds of years men have been doing it, but even today you have men wearing no-makeup makeup looks and some of the most popular makeup artists are men wearing it in outlandish ways. Is the cosplayer feminine for wearing it? What about stage and costume? Makeup and hair styling is gender neutral and you only see it as feminine because your average person doesn't think about how much it's applied for others outside of women. I'm making a hill out of this to help change this thought process and cut down on troonery.
>A little bit of both
Tell me if I'm wrong, but your reason for wanting to do it because it's feminine to you is so you can look cute, is that right?

it’s rude to the attending guests that you would host something so extravagant but not provide the basic necessities. back in Victorian times when a party was held, like say a masquerade ball, the host would usually supply masks for each attending guest. I read in some manga where less fortunate guests would even have their outfits for the night tailored and paid for by the host. that’s not even a rental but a whole new outfit that they got to keep after the event was over. so let me ask you anon is it not rude for you to host an event if you don’t loan out your closet to your guests? don’t host a tea party if you don’t own at least 50 different jsks/ops. there should be at minimum 2 color way in each jsks/ops but ideally 4 as well.

Honestly I wish comms banned minors. They're obnoxious, cringey, weeby, and embarrassing to be around.

Most larger comms tend to just have a friend group or two who separates themselves and kind of does their own private meets in addition to public comm meets. Just form one of those sub groups with your comm friends or make friends with those people and boom, no more having to deal with babysitting teenagers at meets cause you can avoid the public ones they'd be going too and stick to your more private events.

That sounds eerily similar to something that happened to me at my first con.
I was walking with my friends when suddenly one of them latches onto me for dear life and becomes unresponsive. Turns out the poor girl was deathly afraid of escalators, and her designated stair-buddy accidentally ran off ahead. She explained everything and apologized profusely after the ride, but I wasn’t about to complain anytime this century.

Thanks for unearthing that memory, anon. Here’s hoping we both find hugging partners soon.

If you don't have a separate bank account you need to make one right now, that she can't access, and doesn't know about, because fuck the idea of her taking you down with her out of control spending. Yes she probably needs professional help at this point if overdraft fees aren't enough to curb her spending, and no it's not just a "feeling" she's irresponsible because she absolutely is. If you're too depressed to sit down and have a serious talk with her about this, you should at the very least make your plan to get out of this shit because no one on this planet is worth digging yourself into financial troubles over. You should definitely not feel guilty about needing to take care of yourself first in this situation.
>>
>>10689421
>>10689321
What the other anon said. Please separate your finances. Moreover, you should definitely turn off overdraft spending ASAP so she can't do this shit anymore.
Don't let her drag you down with her inability to control spending. You really really need to have a sit down convo about this before it gets worse.

Those of you with full-time jobs, how do you manage finding time for your hobbies? I'm starting my first ever career and a lot of my weekend time is spent either preparing for the work week or doing low-energy activities (watching tv, etc) because that's all I have the energy for. I can feel my soul rotting away and I don't know how to spark the inspiration to use even more of my limited energy.

I enjoy my hobbies while I work. I've worked in call centers for years and while no calls are coming in I draw, read, and at certain places after 6pm all the higher ups are gone so everyone hangs out on their phones. At one place people just brought their tablets and laptops to watch movies and shows. Ever since covid I work from home doing the same thing. Been doing whatever I want with a wireless headset. On weekends I go out, and when I save up enough time off, I go out of the country.

You don't have to go to the gym to work out. Buy some 10 lb weights from Amazon, do some push ups, squats, whatever. I don't like to go to the gym either so I bought weights and just work out while I'm watching youtube.

when you go off keto, make sure you just continue to adopt the carb restriction and awareness you learn from reading nutritional facts for everything. keto can make you hard bounce back and it's hardly a forever thing.

I know there is a Homestuck horror stories thread right now, but I'll drop a wholesome story here instead.

Back in its heyday my younger sister and I were big Homestuck fans, and we got a group together to go to a handful of tiny local conventions. It got me into cosplay as a hobby, my sister learned how to knit those little plushes with her girlfriend at the time while I learned how to sew and sculpted horns for my friends. These were baby's first cosplays but at least they had a bit of crafting effort put into them and it was fun to learn.

Out of our group we only had one male, a guy I had been friends with for years who was also really autistic but huge and pretty fit, so he did sports and kids were pretty nice to him even though he didn't talk.

He asked for help and I basically held his hand the entire way through putting together his first cosplay as one of the trolls, and desu he was probably the best looking cosplayer for this character in our state for a long time, low bar that it is, he was happy and I was really happy to see him open up.

He confessed that he had feelings for me at one point, but I was dating someone at the time and told him he doesn't have to settle on falling for the first girl who's been nice to him.

I moved states and got married a few years back and we didn't end up keeping in touch, but I was really happy to hear that he got engaged.
>>
>>10689985
why the fuck would I bid 4 times and spend $500 on something I may not like?

It's not nice, it's pushy and weird. I bought it for a reason, the reason being I want it. It would be weird if in real life, you purchased something and another person tracked you down to ask you if they could buy it from you. You lost the item, let it go.

I have the house to myself for the first time in what feels like FOREVER and I was able to try some cosplays I definitely couldn't have tried otherwise. Just, no shame whatsoever because it's only me here.
I feel really cute. And it's all just so good. Even took pictures for myself. No way can I ever do this one in public, of course, and the moment people are back from their trip I'll probably have to hide a bunch of accessories.
But I kind of feel AMAZING right now. Like, this is how cosplaying is supposed to feel. I miss cons, and this has kind of been an eye-opener as to how much.

I completely and utterly wasted my youth. Almost 30 now, did nothing, desperately want to get out there and do what I can before I run out of what's left but I have no friends interested in conventions or going out and doing things and not only is it just not as fun without friends it feels fucking pathetic. It's my own fault more than anyone else's but god damn I feel so trapped in my own life now.

20s should be spent getting your shit together and figuring out who you are. 30s is when the fun starts since you're now free and financially stable enough to enjoy life. I've partied and traveled more in my 30s than I did in my 20s.

There are no cars to hit cats in the wild. And the bigger reason to keep cats indoors is the way they wreak havoc on wildlife and local ecosystems. Plus their waste spreads disease. A cat owner with "outside cats" AKA someone who feeds strays is not cleaning up after them or taking them to get checkups or spayed and neutered.

Don't even want to chance someone using this as fap material. They're tucked away in a folder hidden a couple folders deep on a flash drive.

The main part of the outfit is essentially a closet cosplay anyway. But the point is that it makes me feel good, right? Thanks for expressing the interest and feeding my ego I guess.

Exercising before work has actually been reinvigorating for me. Or even just getting up early without exercising. I don't do late night shit anymore anyway, so going to bed earlier has been fine.

I'm into cosplay and anime culture in general but the persona I've created over the past 5 years is so antithetical to anything even remotely non-mainstream that I have no idea how to even find friends into this kind of thing. I just want a solid group of con friends. I'm 26 now and I can feel the years ticking by.

I went to a con this weekend alone. It looked like a ton of fun, so many people doing all sorts of things, cosplaying, talking, laughing. I spoke to a few people here and there based on similar interests (League, a few shows I like, etc.), but it usually died after a short convo, and they go back to hanging with the people they came with/their original friends.

Maybe I'm overthinking it. I think I just need to find a way to make a group of friends and actually go to the con together rather than expect to make friends alone.

I'm gonna give you my scrote pov in case you were curious. Eventhough I love lolita fashion, I'd feel kind of self conscious hanging out with one.

Not saying dump the dumb scrote, but the guy needs to grow some balls. My normie boyfriend wears a t-shirt and jeans whenever we go out, while I wear AP sweet with decent poof.

This, I started wearing lolita to some classes and every man I asked said they really like my "outfits". Lolita is relatively unknown in my country and I only wear solids so people are very supportive.

After years of religiously putting on sunscreen and making ‘avoiding sun’ an olympic sport, i ended up so pale that i even freak myself out sometimes and think that i look like a dead person. My ex said my skin looked colorless. I wonder if it freaks other people out too.
I think its a little too pale but i can’t make myself go into the sun anymore and i guess i will just be like a vampire. Like i’m kinda proud of it but also at what cost, i think i look unnatural
>>
>>10691045
If it’s bothering you, go out in the sun during early morning when it isn’t that strong, stay there for only a small amount of time like less than 10 minutes and it will be fine. A small amount of sunlight is fine, feels good and can be actually healthy.
