I get that with this social climate, it's easier to not call yourself a lesbian... Lesbians are evil transphobic terfs in the public eye and it's easier to try to ignore your attraction (cause I myself dated a guy and tried to "fix" myself), but this just makes me so fucking sad.

You are not alone anon. My puppy died just after I had a really big order in from my ss & I began to associate Lolita with my puppy dying, it took all the joy out of it and I stopped wearing it.

I got really into Lolita in the first place because I was bedridden with a back injury & my parents had died so it took my mind off the bad and cheered me up a tiny bit, just enough to not give up hope. Life throws awful shit at you constantly whether its external or internal. That we are born at all and will one day cease to be is pretty crazy & amazing & scary. Life is hard.

Try to get out more and find something that makes you happy. Before you do anything rash try giving life one more chance. Life insurance companies have a waiting period of a year in case someone tries to use it to profit a loved one off their own suicide. The reason being in a year the chances are overwhelmingly high they'll have changed thier mind. Because things get better. And your cat needs you

Cosplay aside, it feels bad in general. I work from home and take the bus to classes, but I’m afraid I’m going to become a hermit this winter. I have like 4 friends in town, and all my weeb friends live in different parts of the state/different states completely. I usually go to them because I live in bumfuck nowhere and there’s nothing to do. I’m just so scared I won’t be able to see anyone until April or May because of my stupid fear.
I thought maybe it’s something I can get over if I gradually face my fear. But I forced myself to drive on slightly snowy roads to the Walshart <10 minutes away from my house and it freaked me out. I got there, got what I need, and got home, but I puked in the Walmart bathroom and still feel like I’m going to have a heart attack even though I’ve been home for 30+ mins. I feel so fucking pathetic.

You like the feeling of having something to look forward to. i think it'd help curb that unhappy feeling if you started applying arbitrary goals to your off days.

I wouldn't call it a "fetish" but I have a similar thing where I think smoking looks cool in fiction.
My best guess is that it's "atmospheric" - the lazy motion of smoke adds a sense of motion to still images and helps punctuate and reinforce other movements. There's also something to the deliberate motion - deep breath in, deep breath out - as well, even though I'm not a smoker I occasionally catch my dumb ass pantomiming taking a drag to let off some steam.

I hate the look, smoke, and especially smell of cigarettes IRL - even vaping annoys me. But in movies, games, and comics I think it looks cool.

I know it rings alarm bells for you especially when you've been in similar situations (when I was in high school I unsuccessfully tried to date guys and focus on their girly aspects), but unless you're a mind-reader you can't truly know whether she's actually trying to convert herself or if she's genuinely come to some sort of realisation. If you put pressure on her/imply you think her being NB is stupid it'll make her more fearful of changing her identity back, out of fear of "proving everybody right".

From what I hear from other people from similar situations, you should leave that place. I know it's easier said than done, especially because new jobs aren't found on short notice, or might not even be available. but I hope things go better for you.


>Mid 20s
>Had a small but workable amount of weeb friends in high school, very few normie friends, lots of online friends with similar interests
>Introvert, don't make any more on college
>Some drama going on with my real life friend circle that I ultimately wasn't part of
>Eventually everyone just ends up splitting off quietly and cutting off contact with one another, lose contact with my only rl friends
>Now I only have online friends and no real means to make more

It's not like I'm anxious or socially retarded or anything but there's absolutely something I don't get. Every time I talk to a stranger, similar interest or not, I always hold up the conversation perfectly fine. People always talk about making friends at cons, but I always went with friends so every casual conversation I had with a stranger chalked up to just that and nothing more.

I've never cosplayed and I have no idea how you can suddenly just form a friendship with a stranger you meet for one weekend without seeming like a weirdo, or coming off too strongly. It's not like you have a regular excuse to meet off a single conversation from what I understand.

Also sucks I can't even really attend cons anymore anyway. Being mid 20s and lonely sucks. I have my online friends and I love them so much but it can only stave off the isolation for so long.

Both past girlfriends I had were prim, proper, well-educated, smart and studious. They both ended up being back stabbing manipulators. So I've learnt that I can't judge long-term partner worth for shit and may as well just go for the nuclear fun option. I've been approached by girls before but I am shy and disinterested in them so I say no, so I wouldn't call my standards low.

I've just learnt to be more forgiving of someone's past since it's not indicative of their future (or at least I am a very poor judge of character) and her personality makes up for almost every perceivable fault she has of which so far there aren't many. Although I understand I am in limerence at the moment. I am not exaggerating when I say I've never met any person like her before.

Even if you're going with the "only truscum don't think nonbinary genders are legit!!" idea you have to have seen enough people's opinions to know that includes trans men as well as trans women? And a concept being around forever isn't an argument it's legit, lots of bad/incorrect ideas have been around forever and the societies that had widespread cultural acceptance of "third genders" frequently didn't have acceptance of gay and trans people who didn't want to fit into that role. The original meaning of lesbian had fuck all to do with liking "femmes" (by which I assume you're including feminine men) and frequently included very masculine women.

My great aunt is one of those Red Hat Society ladies, and when she found out I was into "extravagant fashion," she got really excited and asked if I would go with her to a red hat society party
I did, because she's sweet and great
Turns out the red hat society is literally lolita for old ladies
It was fun and strange, like lolita in an alternate grandma dimension
I'm honestly excited now for like 40-50 years from now when lolitas are all old ladies still being catty and show-offy and partying

>don't know how honest to be
>genuine autist and don't know social norms

I never told my last counsellor I wore lolita out of fear of her judging me, even though it's my main hobby and takes up most of my time. I can't even begin to explain 4chan to a middle-aged woman, even though it affects my mental health. It seems inappropriate and uncomfortable to talk about porn with a stranger even though it relates to my obsessive behaviours. People say you're shooting yourself in the foot if you're not 100% honest with your therapist, but isn't avoiding talking about some of this stuff just...polite? I'm so confused.

When you are talking to a friend or a random person, sure it can be more polite to skip some things and not to cry out on their shoulder. But you aren't doing that. You are talking to a skilled individual that. Don't skip anything as major as your favourite hobby or a place you spend a lot of time on. It's for your best. They are getting paid to listen to that shit, and yours probably wasn't the worst they encountered. Don't fear about their well-being, but about yours.

Sometimes, I think some people just outgrow cons. I was starting to feel the same way but one thing that helped me have more fun was start doing panels myself or helping friends out with theirs. As for the pics, I definitely don't take as many as I used to but I also haven't kept up with a lot of the recent anime. That said, I still like to take them share them on social media. If you're not a social media kinda person, even just taking photos to share on con threads on cgl or in con FB groups may be something that could make it worth it for you? I also never buy merch at cons either but I still enjoy buying stuff in the AA.

But yeah anon, you're not alone in your feelings. I know plenty of folks who have stopped attending cons because they felt like they've outgrown them, or the cons have outgrown them.

I guess you're right. I just feel unsure because it's not even a "proper" licensed therapist so I don't know how much they're prepared for and it's not like I'm directly paying. It's some sort of university-sponsored counselling thing, not a psychiatrist.

It was like an almost self-harm sort of exposure therapy thing back when I was trying to repress my sexuality really hard 2-3 years ago. Usually can't stand stuff with opposite sex in it, went through a phase where I was depressed to the point of basically not feeling emotions, took advantage of lack of outright disgust to watch hours of straight/gayshit, cry because I feel disgusting and still will never be pure cishet, etc. Very fucked-up and unhealthy in hindsight.

This type of thing gets posted all the time but I'm at a loss on how to connect with people I've met at cons. I feel I'm really behind on media sites. I made a tumblr back when that was what everyone used, but then asking for people's tumblrs I would get told they only use Twitter. Then moved to Twitter and everyone is on Instagram. Made an Instagram and still can't seem to connect with anyone.
I've been going out of my way to try and chat with people and make friends but nothing seems to stick. What really sucks is my local con has been going really downhill and it's not worth it to attend just to look for people who probably won't be interested in being my friend.
I've moved from cosplaying niche things and manga-only characters/series to more popular ones and it seems to have increased the amount of people willing to talk to me but after the small talk, if I can work up the confidence to ask for their info I can't seem to stay connected with them, just dropped convos or simple f4f... I am very aware of how I speak and act at all times so if I say something weird or awkward I will just disengage, but most of the time it seems to go well until this online part. I'm a touch jealous of one of my irl friends because every time we go to a con together, she runs off to meet a million of her online friends while I don't have any to meet. My very small irl friend group is great but I wish I could make more friends, you know?
I really miss some of my online friends from the LJ days, and want something like that again. I'm in my mid-20's and still love cons and cosplaying, but it feels so hard to make friends my age, or make younger friends without coming off as a creep.

>go purely to people watch, find a comfy chair and watch the side shows go by
>Choose one or two serious panels to enjoy
>Dont take the con seriously at all

For real though, most weebs are degenerate scum and arent worth your time. This is why you people watch, its very easy to pick up on who wants to talk or who else is looking for someone to talk to. You find most of these people at other booths or panels, and usually just striking up conversation about the subject, or their cosplay, can instantly energize a conversation.

Sorta glad to hear I'm not the only one in the situation.

I'm not purely there for the money. The money is actually pretty bad which is why I was counting on that review and a raise. I got paid more when I worked in retail. But, it's a job that involves my first degree, so I thought it would be a good place to be. It's not soul-crushing work. It's just soul-crushing management. In fact, on Friday before any of this happened, I thought I was finally doing really well.

I wanted to at least be there for 6 months because that's the magic number for not looking like you quit too soon/didn't try hard enough. But boy, do they make it hard. I actually think I might get fired in December, and not because I'm not doing my job... but because he's so fixated on one thing that he doesn't think I'm excelling in. He ignores all my other strengths. Note that he said during our meeting, "I don't tell new employees that I expect *thing,* I just wait to see if they'll do it on their own."

3) Loyal
That's it. If you prove you are these things, I will marry you on the spot. The purpose of dating is to see if I satisfy you, and if I can trust you and if these things hold true. Nothing else you say or do matters- I will not leave you."
We were engaged 4 months later. We'll have been together 5 years in January.

The thing is few people in our generation ever actually "determine" compatibility. At least not on their first marriage. My 40yo cousins remarried and did basically what I did with their husbands. In order to determine compatibility you need to know what actually matters to you. What is your bottom line at which you'd rather be alone?

Fuck. I'm a guy and I know that feel. I'm not even sure why I know that feel but I do. Maybe just watching my own buddies suck at relationships and fuck things up with women with more sense than them.

And its a totally different feel from the soul shattering despair of putting on a completely fake face that you know isn't going to matter after a month of dating but if you don't do it it sets off "red flags" and you get ghosted because you didn't carry out the ritual deception properly.

Oh you can bet that whenever I quit, I won't give them any notice. They don't deserve that courtesy after all this. I would love to pull the rug out from under them just like they've done to me.

I'm not really career oriented either. I'm not competitive. Even though, I practically worked myself to death in school because I was a straight-A student. I don't really want a career. I would feel fulfilled by just having a family and caring for them. But yeah. Apparently women need to "do it all" now and be "independent."


I'm seeing the bigger picture more and more, and I think the boss is just not a good guy. It really sucks that it has to be this way. I wish people were just... fair...?

Yes - at 90 days they said I would get a review and they told me that normally also comes with a raise. It would make sense, because I'll soon be training new employees in my "department." Which in itself is insane, and should be done by a senior member, but because they had so many people quit, I'm the only one left in my little section, and they are now counting on me. So just that makes me feel like I already deserve a raise.

It is sketchy as hell now, like you said. My gut knows I don't belong at this place anymore. But job-searching sucks the life out of me. So yes, I'm part of the problem. But hell. It just sucks.

Nothing wrong with being gay, anon.

The silhouette is very similar to Victorian childrens' clothes so even in classic there's no getting away from it unless it's a dress with toned-down poof.

As an entrepreneur and business owner, it makes me cringe to hear stories like that. Its well established in business science that happy workers are productive workers, and the job of HR should be to retain quality workers with a budget designated for pay raises and time off. This is well known, yet even major corporations are treating HR's job as "protect the company from employee lawsuits by burdening them with tedious legal seminars".

Its stepping over dollars to pick up pennies. And it really does hurt to look at.

For what its worth, one of the reasons you hear so many stories like that is because shitty jobs have high employee turnover, meaning lots of people have that experience. But good jobs retain competent employees for a lifetime, so you don't hear about it.

As someone who wants to be in a management position one day, this hurts me too. The whole time I've been at this place, I've never really been supported, rewarded, or told I'm valued. I'm not looking for anything big, but most companies understand that a simple, verbal, "You did a good job on this. Keep it up," really increases morale and it doesn't cost a thing.

There's pretty much no sense of emotional well-being here. I don't think my boss even knows that's something that needs to be included in order to retain employees. The only people who remain are those who have been at the company for 3+ years. Everyone a year or less has quit. I am one of two new hires left.

Ironically, this means nobody ever taught you how to plunge a toilet- because it actually is counter-intuitive. You don't push air down the chute with the plunger. What you want to do is create a vacuum seal and give a sharp tug.

You stand there pushing the plunger shaft up and down, and all you're doing is splattering shit water.

This is a sincere and wise response anon.

This is a flamer. I'd say troll, but they're so full of shit they clearly believe in their own.

It is a little unusual to seek emotional comfort for a bowel movement, but its not a big deal either. You don't need a doctor. You should be aware- by communicating- whether your boyfriend resents your needy behavior. If he does and you care about him staying, resolve to be a little more independent. But don't assume he resents it either. People like to feel needed too.

Weird, my self-taught method is the opposite of this.

You're not seriously going to throw money at a therapist over this are you? Please don't. Save it for your wardrobe.

>it isn't weird to have your SO comfort you in a time of pain, because I would do the exact thing for him
Couples have varying levels of codependency and its fine if your *mutually* preferred level of codependency is very high. Just be sure to communicate with him that this is something he actually wants and isn't just something he's putting up with. If you're both on the same page, there will be no problems.

If you're not on the same page, you both need to decide what is important to you. But this isn't something to panic about and threaten to leave over. Its just if you want 99% levels of codependence and he wants 80%, you just need to work it out between you.
1) Do you split the difference at 90% codependence?
2) Do you become more independent because he's worth it in other ways?
3) Does he accept your dependence because you're worth it in other ways?

Reciprocity looks fair but often isn't. Its like him saying "why won't she shave my beard for me? I'd shave her beard if she ever needed me too". If the thing offered in return is only of value to one party, its only superficially reciprocating. But that doesn't mean you can't desire comfort either. It just means you need to contribute enough value to the relationship to be worth it. And if you can't/don't, consider lowering your demands.

In reality, its not like you have a relationship checkbook to balance though. So mostly its just a matter of communicating your feelings and being sensitive to his when he replies.

Good luck anon!

It's just, like, my opinion man. No need to make him waste money on a new plunger. If it works it works, I'm just not a fan.

Also to chime in on this whole painful shit thing, I don't think anybody here outright believes that your BF/GF being in pain is some mundane event that can be ignored. The way I see it is most people don't want to be right next to you while you're shitting, myself included. Likewise I wouldn't want anybody in the bathroom with me while I'm taking a particularly painful shit. It's only emotional support anyway so I think it's perfectly adequate to both give and receive said support through a closed door. It doesn't take two people to take a shit.

>collapsing on the train
I'll probably be there eventually since I skip meals often. I was a bit of an ugly duckling, bad haircut, uncared for, neglected, dressed in rags. Now I look like a freaking cheerleader or something, it's so amazing. this was under there the whole time. Feels bad that I didn't /make it/ in time for college to get that Mrs. degree.
I'm so cute, I should be a model or something. Shame this didn't happen 5-10 years ago...thanks neglectful abusive poorfag parents... Also had depression really hard as a teen/early 20s so I know that feel, it's like years of my life were consumed in this black pit. I have few memories of the time and essentially did nothing but stagnate in poverty and isolation.
but now I'm cute as fuck and will wear all of the nanchatte and look like some boarding school princess like my chinese cartoons. Same haircut and eyecolor/complexion and everything.
I still want to get a few very minor cosmetic fixes though. Gotta be as close to perfection as my lazy self can attain.
Got some permanent health issues from the depression period though, nothing visible but... feels bad man. that shit fucks you up. i couldn't even manage basic healthcare and hygiene/grooming during that black period.

Don't worry sweetie, I've been called much worse.
I'm fine now; currently doing a PhD at a pretty reputable institute and plenty of friends. Getting a bf and having a concrete set of goals helped a lot back in uni.
Sorry to hear that anon. Hope everything goes as planned for you and you become the most kawaii mf there ever was

You're paying this person to asist you with your problems. It's like going into the doctor for a failing liver but pretending that you don't drink. Chances are that this person knows or will know of your obsessive behaviors and ... you're definitely not the first """odd case""" they've seen. People are literally out here eating drywall, their own pee, and gravel. Liking 2D tiddies & other degenerate categories is not the worst you could do. And if they do judge you, move to a therapist who is actually willing to listen to you.

I never understood that arguement when DDLG exists and yet no one points a finger at that. You're not wearing diapers and sucking on binkies, you're accentuating your features (cutesy or otherwise) like an adult woman. It's just shows how glaring their ignorance is. I should mention that I know this despite not being a lolita btw.

Alternatively, doing all the things you find mundane alone will be more exciting with friends or at least people you can talk about it with. I've heard of /cgl/ con meetups in the past, but I can't say I recommend them or not as I've never been to one.

This >>10037259. I was losing that love of cons until my spark was reignited by chasing my long-term dream of cosplaying. It was a simple store-bought w/ personalized wig and accessories, but it light a fire in my heart and now I'm going from scratch on my next costume. Fuck, I've never even used a machine before and now I'm making a bodice from scratch. I hope you find that fire too, anon

Oh anon, that's not abnormal at all. I think you absolutely need to be open with your therapist about this. Everyone watches porn, they're not going to judge. It's their job not to judge.

F4f are not looking to make friends. It's a pure social transaction. They need to bolster their numbers. That's like looking for love in an arranged marriage.

Go make friends with her friends too. Social networking in the truest sense.

It sure as hell does. Work that weakness he's begged you for into your next interview question segment.

Maybe you could look for a another job in the same field or a transfer to a different sector of that business (if possible?). If you find yourself getting closer to the time you're going to be leaving, just talk to that boss open and earnestly. You'll have nothing to lose except maybe having things turn out right. I'm rooting for you business anon-chan.

>> No.10039271

as a neckbeard with a qt3.14, have you tried not being a beta orbiter, which incidentally is creepy and autistic?

If you like a girl, just straightforwardly tell her your'e interested in dating to get to know her better. If she's a dipshit and assumes that means "want sum fuk?" promptly move on to the next one. She'll figure it out eventually that people aren't fucking telepathic and have to communicate their intentions straightforwardly. Just let the spaz spaz. She'll be here and salty the next week, but you'll find a girl who's ready to seriously date quick enough.

>> No.10039283

I don't beta orbit, at all actually. I don't show my interest at all, which is really fucking dumb now that I think about it. For me, an ideal GF is someone with enough common interests/hobbies to be fun to hang around with, so it's just a closer friend basically. I don't want to risk losing that connection, so I don't take the plunge and just go on being friends, waiting for them to make the move.

I've lost a couple of friends that I asked out (that I wanted to stay friends with if they rejected) in high school which made me more freaked out about losing more.

I really, really need to switch my mentality about it since that stupid way of thinking is driving me nuts over how I'm shooting myself in the leg.

>I don't beta orbit. I just hang around girls admiring them from my friendship capsule but never attempt reentry
You're a fucking orbiter, amigo.

>I lost friends in high school by being honest about my feelings
Yeah, high schoolers are shitty and immature. Sorry you got burned. Sincerely. Its a shitty thing, bro. But hopefully you're older and the girls you're around are older and this will go better now.

I don't recommend expressing your intention as "lets be friends" and then later changing it to "lets date". This frustrates women as they make plans based on the first thing and the second thing feels like you were dishonest. I assure you, things go much smoother if you just say you're interested, date them, and see if a friendship happens as you take them on dates where you discuss your hobbies and do the fun things friends would do- but with the explicit and clear understanding for both parties this has the potential to lead to marriage and they're not wasting their time if that is their objective. And you're not wasting your time if its not their objective.

this is my first year not participating in any secret santas, after three years of gigantic let downs that started with a cgl secret santa where I spent easily $400 on my SS getting her tons of brand shit and custom accessories and other gifts and got $10 worth of ugly aliexspress crap in return.

It's not even about the money, I'm just so over putting in so much thought and energy for a stranger when I just keep getting people who realize last minute 'oh shit I signed up for a SS' and send whatever they have lying around. It's not even that I'm hard to shop for, I always provide a ton of options that range from broad generals (pink, cute) to specific links to things. OH well. Vent over.
