My husband recently told me I can buy brand whenever I want as long as our checking account stays within 5K by the end of the month.

>> No.10107811

I can't stand noob lolitas or noobs that are just trying to get into it. I swear they get dumber and more needy every year. As lolita gets easier to buy they get lazier to actually do the minimum work.

At the same time I know all these noobs are important to the growth and life of the fashion and I'd probably be sad if people didn't care to get into it anymore and it died. Also I've seen some clueless noons become well dressed and knowledgeable lolitas. So I end up trying to help them while wondering how someone could try to do so little work for something they claim to love.

Completely disagree. I've been a budget lolita for many years and so have a number of my friends. You won't have a wardrobe in an instant or that many coords but it's not that bad. I've snagged AP for $50 on LM, found great deals on CC and WW. Back in the day I did buy bodyline and I won't suggest it but now there's Taobao. Maybe a person won't have the coord instantly or even in a month but if you truly love it surely you can handle taking the slow and steady path of accumulating pieces. All these noobs are way too impatient. They need everything cheap, they need it now and they need the way to get it to be spoon-fed to them. Sometimes even if you do all that for them they will still find an excuse to buy a Walmart purse and normie trainers.

Wear what makes you happy, it’s all alternative fashion in the end and if you feel out of place in something you can always change your mind. Also a lot of the girls you see in gothic/classic that look super tall are probably shorter than you think. It’s about the way you style and carry yourself that helps you pull off a fashion. I’m short as fuck but gothic lolita is my perfect style that I couldn’t possibly feel more myself in.

I absolutely hate how cosplay is constantly being bombarded with stupid political discourse. I saw some untalented thot's tweet making rounds about how cosplay is "classist" because "not everyone can afford 3D printers and other expensive items". Who the fuck cares? You can make a great armor cosplay out of foam and make it dirt cheap, you just have to actually get good with your craftsmanship instead of whining for patreon donations and pity all the time. It seems like every fame-hungry low tier cosplayer is trying to become famous by "calling out injustice" whether it's racism, homophobia, misogyny or any other bullshit, instead of actually improving and making good costumes. And of course they always attach their paypal/patreon to the reply chain after it breaks 100 RTs. Fuck these people and fuck them for poisoning the whole hobby with their lazy, entitled asses.

I mean, should I make all my costumes out of $2 a yard fabric and sew by hand because some cosplayers can't afford a sewing machine or more expensive materials?

Lolita has never been ridiculously small even during old school. I can see why it's the "fat girl" fashion compared to some other jfash brands that are made for actual thin and tiny girls even by japanese standards. like <80 cm bust <60 cm waist

>> No.10108393

>>10108054
>>10108061
It's not made for like, a Japanese 4XL- but it's definitely on the large end of Japanese sizing. For example, Uniqlo's M size there is listed as 80-86cm bust, 63-69cm waist, so that's like the average size they expect an adult woman to be. Most brand dresses are more like a L-XL by those sizing standards, and then they have shirring to boot... Also remember that the brands are typically targeting younger markets who would be expected to be smaller (like XS-S sized) since they haven't had children or anything, so it is definitely a chubbier girl's fashion from that point of view.

I have no one to go to cons with. The people I used to go with disappeared from my life in one way or another, most of my friends (and my boyfriend) live in another city, and the only friend I had plans to go to cons with (and going together in cosplay too) replaced and completely ditched me me for some other people who are more cosplay-famous than me, therefore, I don't want to go with him anymore. It's been so long since I last went to a con, I have several new cosplays to wear, but nobody to go with, and I don't want to go alone, it'd be so boring. I'm also a little socially anxious and I'm too embarrassed to ask a random acquaintance to go with me... Nobody has even bothered to ask me if I'm going to this or that con.

Im sad that noone creates good jfashion related content anymore outside of posting pictures on Instagram and and in fb groups. I just saw Universal Doll's last post saying she isnt interested in jfashion anymore so she wont be blogging about it. Other blogs, such as petite dollies and fyeahlolita stopped making posts altogether. Youtube channels Ive watched changed or stopped posting anything related to fashion (Princess Peachie, Peachmilky, Tokyo Fashion) I just keep finding a bunch of low quality, boring channels. Kawaii Pateen has been really disappointing lately because they keep posting a bunch of random videos instead of videos with actual models just doing outfits/hair/makeup like they used to do. Fashion in general has been very boring and uninspiring the past few years

Anon, I am in the exact same boat as you. I used to have a small group of friends to cosplay with, but recently it seems like everyone else has completely lost interest in cons and cosplaying. Lately even my best friend, who actually got me into cosplaying, has been ignoring me and she's suddenly now made a new huge group of friends to hang out with and do other nerdy stuff with. I still talk to her and we hang out once in a while, but she never mentions her plans or ever invites me to things now. We've known each other for a really long time and we're like sisters, but now it seems like she's just more interested in her new friends and their hobbies.

I just wish I was more social and could make friends easier, but I am having the hardest time finding people around my age and in my area to just hang out with. It's depressing when I try to bring up cons/cosplay with my old group and they just kind of ignore it.

>> No.10109075 [DELETED] 

I'm too tall and fat (and ugly) to wear lolita.

I know that I can't fix the first one, but I still feel salty that if I had the same proportions, but a normal height, I'd fit clothes much easier.

I was an ana until I was nearly 16, then put on weight thanks to the jojo effect and spent the rest of my high school years being average slim, but hating my body and trying to lose it again with stupid diets.

When I started uni I got depressed and anxious, and because I'm so lonely and sad I eat. Now I'm in my 5th year and fatter than ever.
I always try to start dieting, but I never manage to for more than a day. I usually eat like one healhty meal, go for a run once and then immediately shovel down food again. Just the thought of not being able to eat makes me so unbelievable sad and anxious, food is really my only comfort.
But on the other hand, pretty much all my insecurities and the sadness that stems from that are a result of me feeling too fat. As terrible as starving myself was, I was still much happier back then.

Today I only ate a yogurt with chia seeds for breakfast and already can't wait for my mother to finally leave for work (I have holidays right now) so that I can finally binge again.
I feel like I'm stuck and only getting fatter and fatter... Food makes me happy, but also fat, being fat makes me unhappy and therefore i eat. Great.
What should I do?

Uhhhhhh therapy? Apart from that a good way to avoid binging is to just not have any unhealthy food in the house, replace it with something you can still eat but won't make you fat like salad or endives or watermelon. You can also try to substitute binging with another behavior in the same way smokers may pop a gum every time they crave a cigarette, find something you can do every time you get the urge to binge. I feel you, eating sweets is really comforting to me too but if it's making you miserable you need to find a different comfort for your happiness' sake!

I’m a black cosplayer and while I agree there needs to be more diversity, I feel like some ppl exaggerate how bad the lack of diversity is. There’s cosplayers who are mediocre and not that attractive who tend to complain about not getting the same amount of attention or getting featured on big pages. Like maybe instead of pulling the race card, start making better cosplays, do better makeup, get higher quality pics, and figure out how to be more conventionally attractive. People shouldn’t just follow you because you’re black and sensitive.

Do you mean in characters to cosplay or the amount of black cosplayers featured everywhere?

Because those things are connected. Less brown characters to cosplay means less chances to look canon. And people practically tread on looking the most like the character rather than the costume being really good.

ie. You aren't gonna get posted much on major outlets, if at all, if you are a good brown She-ra cosplayer over a white She-ra cosplayer in an equal outfit.

That's the issue. Not mediocrity.

Not to mention conventionally attractive reeks of eurocentric features.

I understand that you're nervous and people cosplaying from franchises they don't know is a problem these days, but it's really not that deep. Use fandom as a conversation starter, it's the easiest icebreaker available to you at a con, and no one will label you a creep if you don't do anything creepy like touch without permission or say/ask weird or personal things.

Unless you're close to one of your friends to the point of being able to suggest a casual date without it being strange, i.e.

I'd suggest you don't pursue them. And again, if you decide to go for it anyway, be casual about it, don't dump your feefees on them like
>I've liked you for a long time now...
or anything along those lines. It's a bit heavy and not the right way to go on about it, at least in my opinion. Though I still think you can casually flirt and maybe form some connection with a cosplayer at a con, especially if you cosplay yourself.

So, I'm an ana-chan, have been for a number of years now. I thought I was finally getting better, which was a feat because I've kept it to myself all these years, and recently I've been confiding in a friend about it. Unfortunately, having someone to talk to about it is making me relapse harder than I ever have before. I know my friend is trying to help, but them looking out for me so much in regards to calorie counts is really just making it worse.

I feel like the only way to combat this is to stop talking about it, but if I stop talking about it, things also might get bad for me again. I don't know what to do.

As a gay person, hard hard agree with you on this.

I’ve encountered sooooo many of these snowflake fucks only to find out they’re almost always a cis girl pretending to be trans and gay because it’s the cool thing to do to score ~*~*opression*~*~ points. All because they fetishize gay people and how they are portrayed in media especially like yaoi.

They’ve never had to deal with actually “coming out” or any of the real shit that gay and other lgbtq people face on a daily basis. They make us look like a cutesy trope for their role playing and that’s it. It’s so so harmful. Yaoi and bara type media has been nothing but a harmful plague on us.

There's nothing wrong with wanting to share what you've done with others! That's perfectly normal!

Lesbian seconding this. I'm sick of seeing the same girls who are bicurious at best who use being gay or trans as a substitute personality. People still get fucking murdered for being LGBT in some parts of the world, but the girls who think other girls are kinda pretty despite exclusive dickhopping and think wearing pants one day = new gender are the really, truly opressed minorities.

The same girls are always the ones crying out about how hard their lives are when the extent of caring about LGBT rights is draping themselves in a flag and attention whoring on social media once a year at pride. They don't even bother to talk to or associate with people who have genuinely suffered because of their identity and they are so far removed from what it's like to come out. Sorry for personal sperg but I still thank my lucky stars that my parents didn't kick me out when I told them.

These people don't seem to realise that being gay isn't fun and quirky and it shouldn't become a surrogate personality trait. I'll never forget this girl I met who was obsessed with yaoi and wanted to get a sex change so she could be a gay man, no dysphoria she was literally just a fujoshit.

Same. I live in a country that to outsiders seems very PC, but the average person still thinks that gays are either mentally ill or just making stuff up for attention. I'm still in the closet and probably will always be, not only because my average day to day life is mostly filled with straight cis people who don't think for a second before they say stuff like "I'd be so grossed out to find out someone I know is gay that's so sick", but also because the people at conventions are so goddamn overbearing with their attitude of ~being queer is a personality uvu~ and losing their shit at anyone who doesn't believe it when a biological girl dressed up as a girl claims to be a cute uke boi while clinging to her boyfriend. Don't even get me started on straight "allies" who think they're doing you a favor because they own something with a rainbow on it and force everyone to "accept" their LGBT friends in the most aggressive and demeaning way possible of outing them to anyone and everyone without their permission.

I just hate it how everyone always has to voice their opinion on sexuality whether it's about how bothered they are when someone is gay, or how bothered they are when someone isn't yas queen slayy gay enough. Who you're attracted to has fuck all to do with your personality or how good of a person you are, it genuinely should not be anyone's business in the first place.

I used to make cosplays for my boyfriend. He’s a sweet guy but cosplay brings out the absolute worst in him, to the point where I won’t make him shit or do cosplay groups with him anymore.
He started asking for increasingly complex costumes in increasingly short timeframes, and being an ingrate about it (He’d wear it for a few hours for a photoshoot and then throw it on the floor and let it get wrinkled and stepped on and ruined) The last cosplay I made for him was one he said he was going to make himself, procrastinated on, then handed me the material two days before the con and asked me to make it for him. He was part of a group photoshoot and was fretting about how he’d “ruin the group and let everyone down”, so I concrunched it for him. It was definitely a rush job, but it was fine for a photoshoot. He wore it to the con, bitched about how it looked bad and how embarrassed he was, and then treated it like shit after the photoshoot.

I told him I’m not sewing shit for him anymore. I think he thought I would change my mind, but it’s been 6 months and I’m still not budging.

i redownloaded neko atsume and I'm already bored with it but I can't find it in me to delete it because my cat recently died and one of the cats in it looks like him. I've been really depressed since he passed but my family's done so much to try and make me feel better I feel like I have no right to still be this bummed out. I want to get back into cosplay and get some shoots done or something but I have literally zero free time these days and I feel guilty and ungrateful virtually 24/7 because I'm still so unhappy.

I recently bought a binder to fit into some of my lolita dresses. My waist measurements fit but my chest was always too big. I had some dream dresses sitting in my closet because my boobs were too big to fit and I was considering selling most of them. I'm not sure why I didn't think to try a binder or a compression bra before? But if any other gull is in a similar situation, I really recommend you try one to see if it'll compress your chest enough so that you can wear your favorite dresses.

I'm still trying to get used to wearing the binder for short stretches of time at home before I go out anywhere. But I'm glad I can finally wear the dresses I've wanted to wear for such a long time!

I mean you're regretting things that you yourself are killing. You can still hit up raves and parties you just need to know where they are at.

In addition, I'm going to reiterate what >>10110452 said. You sound happy with yourself up until you talk about a missing piece. If you are miserable because you're single, if you snag that qt-pi and she is a HELLRAISER you will be MISERABLE and also convince yourself it is ok, condemning yourself to being a rug that she can stomp all over and drag her feet across.

Or you can love yourself first, realize that this is fine to be single, realize that you can take steps to find others, but are not just a random net in the ocean that will take the first bit of trash that floats into it. You're a person, a gull, that deserves the best - not just anything. Love yourself and you'll be more like a magnet anyways.

I mean... did you or didn't you go off of the sizing on the website? if you normally get a medium in western sizing, but you ordered a medium from a shop in a foreign land that likely has their own size chart... what did you expect? You said you checked your measurements a bunch, but did you compare that to what was on the site or not? Your post doesn't make a lot of sense. Sadly, almost every store has different sizing, so just because you wear something in one size in one store in one country, doesn't mean the sizing is consistent elsewhere.

OP here, the thing is, after the first time I ordered a shirt that didn't fit on line because it was 'what I normally get', I always check the measurements and this isn't my first time ordering from China. Normally, even if it says the shoulder width is my size, it's to tight because Asians tend to be smaller. Just imagine my confusion when I order something that I am seriously worried is going to be to small and only took a chance on since I absolutely loved it and instead of being to small it's to large?

Having some bad feels over lolita fashion lately.
I've been in this fashion for about 8 years. I have taken some time off where I don't wear it much and early on sold my whole wardrobe, but other than that I've tried to wear it a few times per month and my interest in it goes back even longer, like 12 or 13 years. I'm 30.
And after all this time and wearing it so much I just don't... feel like a lolita or the fashion really suits me. I think I look like a normie, outside of lolita I wear normie office stuff or light goth. But my hair and face look normie and I don't necessarily want to change that.
I love looking at the clothes and buying them but wearing them is uncomfortable and I don't feel like they are really "me," more like I'm wearing a costume. I have tried many different styles, I've tried being more casual, I've tried wearing more things like cutsews. I haven't really tried classic because it doesn't appeal to me a lot (despite being a huge draw to me first getting into the fashion) but I have worn gothic, sweet, oldschool, and many variations on those, going for different looks and feels that I think would suit me more.
I look good wearing the clothes too, I always get compliments, even by normies. But I also still get asked why am I dressed up or what is my costume and it really, really bothers me. I try so hard not to let it, I KNOW people's opinions don't matter, and in all other areas of life I'm mostly confident... but in lolita it still bothers me and makes me not want to wear the fashion anymore.
All this makes me feel so sad, after years and years of wearing this fashion and loving it so much and I still don't feel "right" in it and I don't know why. I envy people who say they wear it every day and that they feel so comfortable in it because I don't.
I often think of selling my wardrobe and putting it toward retirement or something but the thought is too heartbreaking, like giving up on one of the few things that brings me joy.

>> No.10111579

If lolita isn't fun for you, maybe it's time to let it go. You don't have to sell your entire lolita wardrobe, keep a few items that you really like if you want, but there's no point in forcing yourself to stay involved in it if it doesn't make you happy. And if you change your mind down the road and decide to come back to lolita, that's ok too. Just do what makes you happy, anon.

It sounds like you might have tried it already but here is what I did in the last months with my wadrobe.
I nearly sold all prints, only the ones that were my dream dresses stayed (3 dresses). I kept dresses that had muted colors and patterns. I sold all blouses (except 3 for the dream dresses) that were very frilly or eye catching. Basically I toned down my whole wadrobe and sold quite a lot. If I buy new pieces I look for pieces that are more simple in their details and not too eyecatching. For dresses the ones that work with a small petti are prefered. The muted colors help a lot to be overlooked. Same goes for the shape, lesser poof does a lot and ver simple headwear like a beret. I guess at that point it's more soft lolita, or whatever you want to call it, than anything else. But I'm comfortable with it and can still wear the dresses I adore.
Since the switch I wear lolita much more often because I get much less looks from normies and feel more comfortable. I'm really normie outside of lolita as well, probably this is why the really casual approach suits me.

>> No.10111615

>>10111585
Thanks anon. I have tried this, sort of. I missed the mark with a lot of "casual" pieces that I think threw me off, like buying pink florals.. which can be "casual" for lolita but still stand out a lot in the real world. I may try again with more blacks and dark colors which is what I wear normally outside of Lolita.
I also just love my prints. Really I want to live in a fantasy world where no one pays attention to sweet lolita and it's also really comfortable to wear and takes only ten minutes to put on. I know none of this is gonna happen so I'm just trying to do what I can to get less attention and make it easier to wear, I guess.

I know that feeling all to well. I love my prints too. There are lot of prints I love to look at but just don't feel comfortable in. And as hard as it was I had to realize that just because I love to look at it, doesn't mean it's the right thing for me to wear. Even if it suits me.
It will be hard letting your prints go but at the same time it might make you happier knowing you won't feel uncomfortable. Keep a few you love the most. The money you make from the sold pieces can be used for new additions.

I wish we lived in a world where we just didn't pay attention to how other people choose to dress themselves, and I could just go around my business in my frilly dresses without all of the excessive attention. If I could just go out once without explaining I'm wearing a costume, it'd be wonderful.
I wear mostly classic mixed with a lot of vintage, and I still get compliments on my "costume" or mocked by bros almost every day because I live in a small college town where the uniform is mostly t-shirts and leggings.

Instead, I fuel myself with spite.
Pretty dresses are one of the few things that really bring my depression-fueled brain happiness, and I'm not letting the judgement of small town assholes keep me from wearing it. I'm not like the normies that look at my dresses and sigh that they "just can't pull off that stuff", I'm gonna fucking wear it because I love it goddamnit.

YOU are a selfish twat. Why not just tone it down for them while he runs for office and then once elected, get back to it? As a kindness for your possible future family? Or get a job, so their son isn't your sole financial source?

Oh right. Because you're a stupid spoiled whore.

And that's what they'll think of you.
And that's what everyone else does too.

I'm just saying that "running for office" does not automatically mean the family is the source of the son's wealth, which is not "a story." Maybe they're trailer trash, maybe they're reasonably well off but still made their son pay for uni himself, maybe they footed the bill for uni but haven't given him cash since, maybe they buy him a private jet every weekend just so he can put it on auto-pilot and crash it into poor people's neighborhoods.

I think nowadays they expect the women to do.. something. Hence the suggestion of a baby. Playing housewife and buying fancy dresses is not really acceptable. Maybe anon does have a job but I didn't really get that impression.

I don't know the DeVos' personal life and their expectations for Betsy, and I hazard a guess that you don't either. She also comes from money herself FWIW, we don't know anon's background.

My point here is that we - both you and I and anyone else - can't make broad claims about anon's situation. We have the barest of details. We don't know the family or anon at all. There's simply not enough information for you or me to make judgments about anon's lifestyle. She could be a pig blowing her SO's money on ONLY dresses that Mana-sama has pissed in so she can coordinate them with diapers, or she could just be a shy depressed girl who wears nothing but totally understated classic and is absolutely too young to have a kid yet.

The best advice, given that, is for anon to speak with her SO about how to proceed and handle the family. That's it.

Fujoshi really IS just a term for a woman who likes yaoi/BL, though. Fujoshit is a term used by people who have disdain for the women who enjoy BL and by some fujos who find humor in being extra self-deprecating.

A lot of people (mostly young SJW types) have bees in their bonnets over "fujoshi" because they claim women shipping men in gay relationships at all is problematic and fetishizing, even if the men are fictional.

OP of >>10111362 here. Did not think this would turn into such a mess....

To clarify some things
My SO is wealthy because of his family and also because of his work ethic and type of career. I also work but I grew up really poor. I never had anything nice until I met him. It’s true that he spoils me but I work for most of my wardrobe. I’m grateful to him. I’m not a leech but I am not smart so I can just do my best at an office job I don’t know what he sees in me but he likes me enough to be my husband and take care of me so I can enjoy wearing pretty things. I always tell him I’m sorry that I’m not good enough and try my best.

I’m depressed about being told to leave the fashion because it’s all I have. I don’t have friends outside of the hobby because I’m shy and awkward. I’m afraid I’ll be lonely again. I’m also sad because my SO’s parents made me feel like I’m a freak for my interests and that I would be better suited as a house wife with kids to make up this perfect fantasy image. All because they don’t want the family looked up and my photos be found and used against them. I explained the fashion isn’t a sex thing but it’s fair to assume that anyone looking to smear a campaign isn’t going to care about that.
So far my SO has been neutral on the subject.

I'm a lolita so if you're a cosplayer this may be useless to you, but don't lose heart! Plenty of the really well dressed and beautiful lolitas have unusual noses. For example Connie uses angles really well and has great makeup but she has larger nose. Sure you look at yourself and focus in on it but you probably don't look half as bad as you think you do. Also what is your makeup like? Git gud at eye makeup and wear a good lip colour, that will help distract any wandering eyes.

Also if you do go that route, surgical options aren't as bad as the scare stories make them seem. If your problem is a hooked nose there's even a non surgical option that uses filler to straighten it out. Do careful research, save up for the best and only go to a reputable surgeon, use your consultation to ask a lot of questions about your doctor's practice and aesthetic preferences as well as procedure details. And remember that online, people don't talk about good experiences and routine outcomes much so most of you see is the bad stuff. A nose job is a possibility, anon. And a consultation with a surgeon isn't a commitment to get it done!

Please don't shape your life to fit them! The things you love are worth fighting for, and you are worth happiness and love too.

I can only vent about this here because anywhere off anon it seems like a humblebrag, but it's really stressing me out. I like what I have and I wear lolita at least once a week but that's still physically not enough time to wear all my stuff. I sometimes think being unemployed or going back to college would be good because at least then I'd be able to wear lolita more often and I'd be forced to use what I already have. My list of wishlist pieces is longer than the list of what I'd consider selling.

This is such a weird situation to find myself in too, because I know exactly what this looks like from the outside (ambitious cosplayer wants to fuck game dev for own personal gain) but the fact that he works for this studio actually is a complete non factor into my attraction to him? I’m not a fan girl. I didn’t even know who he was before I met him. I would be really hard pressed to name a single person on the dev team of any of my favourite games because they’re just people with jobs, and while I’m grateful for what they do, I think they also deserve to be treated like people and not put on pedestals.

I would tone down your hobby around then and discuss other things, slyly try to imply you've moved on. Maybe lock down some of your online stuff.

I don't have any real reason to worry about money but my anxiety is killing me. I want to just have the finished costume in my hand and be at the con. This process is so nerve wracking.

I say ignore all these other anons. They’re all a bunch of non-poly people pretending like they know what polyamory is. They think since he’s married, there’s no way he could be poly, which truly shows how little they know about polyamory. I know 3 different poly couples who have gotten married in the past few years and they’re all still happily open and poly. Two people getting married doesn’t make them monogamous

Half of them aren't saying that, they're rightfully pointing out that he could be lying about being poly, which is a valid concern. I've had an ex before who cheated on me and told the guys she fucked that I was ok with it and we had a poly relationship when we'd actually agreed to be monogamous.

My advice to the original anon would be to ask him about it first, then confirm with the guy's partner that it's ok before doing anything.

Sounds like you’re a compulsive spender rather than buying pieces you truly love. I went through similar not long ago and took a hiatus from the fashion for a few months. It really helped me reflect on what pieces were actually special to me and worth keeping. It also helps to look at your pieces and decide whether or not you can come up with more than 3 completely new coords for each main piece; if not and if I’m not willing to spend more money for just one coord to justify keeping a piece then it’s got to go.

I also like to only buy pretty expensive or rare main pieces, too. It helps me alot to think of quality over quantity and I’ve not bought any shitty taobao or random trash on auctions just because “well it was cheap and I kind of like it.”

can't really prove you wrong on the interwebs but even when I was underweight (used to be 44kg at 165cm, currently 58kg) i simply don't find a lot of stuff to go well with my body and face (wide shoulders, wide hips, boyish face, etc) as well personality and that's ok, not every single style is going to look nor feel right on every body.
Just not my style. But I love seeing things on other people so much, and them happy.
I wish more people had the money, patience, courage and freedom to explore their own style rather than everybody walking around like fabricated fast food fashion robots (nothing wrong if you like it - the problem is that I find people keep wearing it because they feel obligated to, because everybody else does and tells them to, and often get depressed when they themselves don't fit in).

You talk to his wife.

I had a weird situation with a boss at an old job who was married and I had feels for. He assured me up and down she was cool with it, they were in an open relationship because she was too hot for him or something like that. His wife gave me a ride to work once (I didn’t have a car at the moment) since he went in early and I asked her about her thoughts on open relationships and polyamory since it seems sketchy. Glad I did because she was 100% not in favor of sharing her spouse and thank god I dodged that bullet.

If you decide to do anything ever just keep in mind that unfortunately people aren’t very honest. They’ll flirt and lie in the moment because it gives them a rush. I don’t know why people think they’re not obviously being sneaky.

Thank you, anon.
Honestly don’t get why these spergs act like their polyamory is any different than the dirty Mormon fucks. They just aren’t capable of being loyal and need to hide behind some dumb religion or “new age love” bullshit. These retards don’t actually “love differently” it’s just an excuse to be edgy and cheat.

In a poly relationship, it's suppose to be open regarding communication. Yes, both partners are to be made aware, and approve, of new partners before doing anything sexual. Unfortunately, most don't know that's how poly relationships are suppose to work, and it sets up bad situations such as your story.

I’m becoming such a brandwhore for Enchantlic Enchantilly. They have such lovely prints and they’re tall-chan friendly. I’m literally looking at listings on Lacemarket now and thinking “well I don’t really need it, but it’s a really good deal, I already have shoes and jewelry to coord with it, AND it comes with stockings I want!”

Someone please stop me.
