I have no “real” friends, or maybe I’m disillusioned on what “real” friends are.
I started my own business and I’m doing really fucking good but I have nobody to share my success with.
My mom thinking I’m bragging and refuses to hear about it, but since she refuses to hear about it she doesn’t know how well I’m doing—so she still thinks I need to get a “real” job.
Every time I want to tell my friends I know its basically just me bragging because in comparison, their lives look super shitty and hard and I also don’t want to devalue them by telling them about my success. I just want someone I can share all my updates with because I’ve never done something like this before! And I’m proud! And everything’s so exciting and scary, and I think bottling this all up is starting to take a negative toll on me. Recently I’ve become “...but what really is the point?” And it’s interfering with my work.
I go to the gym everyday since I have a sendentary job, but even now I’m like “why bother? No one gets to see how good I’m doing anyways”.

I think I’m isolating myself completely and I’m spiraling into a deeper depression.

It's exactly the reason why cameras won't work. Only thing I can hope for is that those kids will grow up and stop behaving like dorks some day.

>Sure you were, Nancy
You might be bait, so this is the last time I am replying to you. I usually like kids, and I gladly give the nice ones candy. BUT the costumes and dressing up gives them the opportunity to go incognito and abuse the good nature of people and this is were bad behavior is enabled in some of them. But god forbid I point that out or that I am upset about vandalism of my property.

Also please understand that Halloween doesn't have a long tradition in my country. Older people don't celebrate it, it's mostly a thing for millenials or younger generations. The revolving culture around is mostly young adults going to spooky partys getting drunk and kids dressing up and begging for candy. If it was more like a family thing were you got together, ate some pumpkin soup and were comfy I'd actually like it. But it's not like this overall. It might change in the future with more people growing up with it, but in its current state there are many aspects about it which I don't like and I could live without.

>> No.10023770

I was under the impression you already knew who the kids were; hence, the comment about protective parents, who would surely recognise their childrens' costumes.

I'm pretty sure I know who the kids are. I once brought it up to the parents and I am once other affected homeowners did as well but they brushed it off and kept covering their kids and just said it was someone else with the same costume. If you don't have the face as a proof you basically have no proof at all and the police won't bother either.

You actually got me thinking about it and it might be that the bad picture actually featured a full open-mouth smile. I never do that when taking selfies or controlled pictures because it feels so stiff and usually turns out "bad" according to myself. My self esteem isn't catastrophic, but neither is it all fine and dandy. Little things like smiling with my mouth closed for pictures might be the direct result. Well, he was probably happy to get an immortalised image of me looking truly happy as I do when no cameras are involved.

I have had some problems with my boyfriend lately cause he's always busy with work. He recently took time off just to spend time with me and it meant a lot so I got deessed up.

At the end of the night he took photos of my coord and I remember looking at the photos right after and thinking, yes these are good. Not amazing or anything close to what I want to look like. But decent ya know??

I go back to resize for Instagram and go through the photos taken. They're all shit and I look stiff and uncomfortable in my own skin. I always get too tense in photos and I've read some of the poss tutorials online... but none of it helps me loosen up enough to not look like a scared stick. And my stupid un even smile just makes it worse.

It was so hard to tell my boyfriend I didn't really like the photos. But he understood that it wasn't his fault. He said he's gonna try and help me more when I want photos now. But I feel like I'm still going to fuck it up and look awkward and stiff.

What is wrong with you girls? My ex would do this all the time. She'd ask or I'd offer to take her picture. I'd get a nice frame, angle and lighting, take a picture and I thought she looked gorgeous.

But then she'd get mad because I didn't take like 20 from different positions and with her making different expressions. Like why? One quality picture is way better than 20 average pictures. Then she'd scroll through all 20 or however many I took and say she hates them all because she looks bad. They looked fine to me and I would have happily uploaded any of them.

Same with selfies. She loved her makeup and actually got featured on some decently large pages. But she'd spend literally hours walking around the house taking hundreds of selfies in different positions, in different rooms, with different faces and sometimes waiting for the sun to be in a different position in the sky. Then she'd use only one, edit the fuck out of it and then upload it and if it didn't get enough likes, she'd delete it.

I sort of understand it because I like to upload photos where I look nice but not to that level. If I look okay but the photo itself makes me happy it doesn't matter, it's about the memory.

Hold up. I never said I was mad at my boyfriend. If anything I'm so greatful that he's willing to work with me. Like I'm so happy that he wants to help me take better photos.

I've never been in a magazine or featured on a site. Sounds like this girl was a typical model type.

But also... good photos are part of both lolita and cosplay. Hence all the photo judging on this board. If she was in either group, then it makes sense she wants good photos. It comes with the hobby.

If you don't get this... why are you on this board??

Yeah my bf was telling me about how we could try more candid shots, and he said he'll try to make me laugh so I look more natural. I also suggested he direct me more since the few times I got decent photos, it was because I was being told what to do cause I just don't know what to do with my body.

>> No.10025200

I feel you anon. I'm a bit awkward at posing as well and a lot of photos used to turn out bad because of this. My bf kind of hated having to take so many pictures of me, so we talked about it and I told him that firstly, it's important for the outfit to look neat and that he should have an eye on that (hair doesn't look messy, necklace isn't tangled, no weird bulk or wrinkles in the dress, hair accessory hits properly, no open shoe laces and stuff like that).
Next, I taught him that light is important and to avoid angles that produce harsh shadows, and that it's important that you can see the details of the dress etc.
As the last step I recommend that you both just go outside and practice a bit. Maybe show him some pictures of lolitas online and what poses generally look good on anyonse, and then reproduce these and see what suits you the best. Once you have found out a few angles/poses that look good on you, try to remember these and also tell your bf "this is what the picture should look like". At first all of this will be a bit awkward, but from my experience after 2-3 times of doing this you both automatically know what to do and how to guide each other. The whole process will also take maybe 2 minutes and you'll have a good photo in 2-3 shots. And with practice also comes the confidence and you'll feel better about yourself.

Really, communication is the key success. There is a good chance he doesn't really know what he is doing and since you are insecure about yourself you can't guide him either because you don't know how to look flattering. So talk to him and practice together and you will find success.

I can see why people would get salty about it but most of the people don't feel comfortable being their partners only social contact so the situation isn't definitely as good as it might seem.

I feel the exact same way: I'm most of the time comoletely fine with me being just by myself because I can't bear the exhaustion of seeing someone regularly anyways. I'm happy your bf accepts you and mine have mostly given up too. I believe most of the time it's the pressure from society that make me feel like a abnormal weirdo and the need to get friends. One girlfriend would be lovely though, I would want to spoil someone and do fun stuff together if social contacts weren't so hard. And sometimes it would be nice to have someone. For example, bf announced he is going away for both Christmas and New Year's and occasions like these makes me sad.

The deal with this is that sometimes it is a flirt, sometimes it isn't. The key is in knowing that the 'maybes' are just chances you have to jump at, and not beat yourself up if you were wrong. If someone's gonna use a somewhat vague turn of conversation to drop you a hint, then it's not entirely your fault for missing it, either. You can't get a feel for this kinda thing if you never interact with others based on your hunches. Gotta deal with that trial and error to learn how to figure it out.

>At the 3,2,1 countdown, start to exhale slowly through your nose at 2. It's like taking a deep breath and easing the tension on your shoulders at the same time.

lately I’ve noticed a couple girls in my comm begging for money for medical bills but turn around a couple weeks later and start buying themselves multiple dresses. I’m newer to my community and was really starting to like the girls in it but now I’m so disappointed. makes me afraid they are possibly scammers when selling stuff now and I don’t feel comfortable being around them anymore. no one has called them out or maybe I’m the only one who noticed it? the first time it happened I just told myself not to judge, I don’t know the situation but now it’s been the same girls doing it multiple times and always magically having the funds for dresses maybe 2 weeks after they get the money.

I’m afraid to say anything because they are mods or best friends with the mods but now I don’t even really want to go to meets anymore or be around them. the first time it happened I donated to help out because I felt bad. I was in similar situation before and it broke my heart to have to sell alot of my wardrobe especially because they have small wardrobes even now. now I’m angry and upset I may see them at another meet wearing dresses,wigs and accessories myself and other people paid for. our money we worked hard for on their bodies. I heard alot of bad things about alot of girls in this community from other ones and even from some girls in the same community but I kept thinking it was just gossip since lots of the members are early 20s and immature still. I’m thinking now of being a lonelita until I have to move again for work because I feel so used and like I shouldn’t be around such terrible people like this but Im afraid it will keep happening and more people’s donations will be used wrongly and scammed.

Whats really funny is she went off on how im racist, culturally insensitive and what not, and we actually share many of the same views!

She also did this at a Baby Metal Concert I took her to :(

If you can gracefully accept a no and move on without placing blame onto the other person, then you're not even close to this. If someone has a problem with it, and some will, it's their own insecurities reflecting this, not you. It has taken me a really long time to realize this. Sure, not EVERYONE who drops hints or is super friendly is into you, but you're not going to be approaching EVERYONE, either. Don't act thirsty, just try a return flirt once in a while, or outright ask if you are confused. "Hey, I could be wrong, but are you interested in getting together some time/ want to go out on a date?" "Oh, my bad, I misread" etc. Learn to swallow your embarrassment and take advice gracefully, and you'll pick up on things better with time. Fuck anybody who treats you like a loser for it, they aren't worth your time. Your attitude in being a decent person to others is the most important part here. Younger me used to think all men were just awful people trying to get into girls pants, but time around different kinds of people helped me stop projecting my social fears onto my interactions.

I was in your position and the men there didn't care about my age. It's a fun short-term experience if you like traveling, but as a foreign woman dating you're only the arm candy or mistress for guys with a lot of hatred towards Japanese women, which is weird because Japanese women aren't that different and I don't know why these guys can't see that. I don't date much because the men are strange, but even as a Christmas cake men in the 23-60 range are very enamored with me. I'm nothing special, just foreign.

But they also have a sort of older sister/motherly vibe towards me which I really like.

So don't put such pressure on yourself. There are guys who don't care. Obviously within reason. Obey the rule Your Age +/- 7

Butthole inspections must be getting intense.

Rather than lashing out at her for expressing her insecurities, assure her that your relationship won't change just because you move out. Make time to hang out with her especially and call or text her once in a while to let her know that you were thinking about her. The things she's saying to you are uncalled for but it's obviously not ill-intended. She's your mom, just be honest with her.

You shouldn't be trying to fix your relationship flaws, you both should be working to fix them. You're completely right, ignoring you is denying your ability to come together as a couple and discuss your feelings and develop a compromise to your problems. If he's ignoring you, don't give him the satisfaction of seeing you writhe with pain. I've been on your end of the stick and it's agonizing.When you're angry at your partner, you don't do things to make them hurt. That's just unhealthy.

Men complain because we don't have as many opportunities to start a relationship as women.
