Just found out that "CGL" can mean "Caregiver/Little"

Lolitas will never lose our DDLG reputation.

>> No.10391360

There’s is a 200% chance that is bullshit. Why are you trusting Urban Dictionary

>> No.10391362


It is what first comes up searching cgl on Google for me in the US sadly. But it's usually typed cg/l like how ddlg is often typed dd/lg. I think it's the adult baby fetishists way of having a gender neutral term that doesn't specify whether the baby or "parent" parties are a certain gender.

>> No.10391363

Yeah, because it’s the urban dictionary result dumbass

>> No.10391366


No need to be rude. I wasn't saying that other people universally interpret it that way. Just saying that it does also get used by those groups.

Cgl isn't the end all be all of lolita stuff anyway, so it's not like creepy fetishists using the term are in some way going to take over that acronym or whatever. Many if not most people in comms IRL avoid talking about cgl anyway.

>> No.10391367

So what you're saying is it's a niche gender neutral term that applies to maybe .1% of people in the group, but is theoretically less offensive. So in other words, it's going to be the term everyone is using in a year or so.

>> No.10391373

i had thought this was an intentional joke

it's not bullshit though i haven't seen the term used here much. it also describes ageplay couples that don't have a pronounced dom/sub thing going on that are more into age regression shit.

>Just saying that it does also get used by those groups.
My point is that urban dictionary results get bumped to the top of google regardless of their voracity.

When I search the name Ashleigh this is the top result. Doesn’t mean most Ashleigh’s are actually gingers.

Anyone can edit UD for any reason and it doesn’t get edited. It means nothing.

You misunderstood my question but it seems I misjudged my own issue. I just looked through the tags (egl and eglcommunity) and hardly found any posts like the ones I remember. The tags were DOMINATED by elegant gothic lolita, and I had to sift forth some outliers. Mostly I found "extreme gear L-something" military-fags and this one sporty gamer boy tagging their posts as such. It humours me that the EGL military gear company hashtags their brand with the same letter combination as literal armies of frilly women.

Well yea but It definitely depends on how large the scar is and whether or not you got skin grafts
Moisturizing is the key to most skin issues, the other is getting rid of oils, and that doesn't apply to scars.
For burns though, I imagine sunscreen goes doubly important.

I like having lolita even if I don't ever wear them. I don't have any rare or special pieces, just old stuff no one really wants anymore because it's what was popular when I was passionate about lolita as a kid that just discovered it (~2006-2012)
I don't go to meets or cons, most activities I do I like to be able to move freely without the weight/mass of petticoats or shoes too cute to scuff up, so I have these beautiful expensive clothes just sitting nicely in my closet that don't get worn.
It makes me a little sad sometimes, but at the end of the day I'm happy to have them there. Maybe someday I'll find an excuse to wear them out, but for now it's just cozy to look at.

>> No.10392511

Consider doing an instagram where you post detail shots of what you love about the pieces. I think that would be a nice way to interact with the items and the community. Old stock photos are blurry, and sellers often post only a zoomed-out view, so having more detail photos of old pieces would be cool to look at.

Someone bought Princess in Love for ~$1k. I don't know how to feel.

I was wondering when this was going to happen. Recently there was another listing for the black colorway on Yahoo JP for ~$800 if I remember correctly.

I own this dress in sax, which is probably the rarest colorway, and I bought it below retail about 2 years ago. The salty person inside me is excited that maybe I'm about to own the next "iconic" dress worth some outrageous price. But I'm mostly shocked and sad that this is more proof of how inflated the secondhand AP market has become.

I know this is just one listing, but anyone selling this dress next is going to use this price as a reference.

There's still a few dresses on my wishlist I'm scared will just completely explode in price. Like you, I'm happy I've snagged so much before the big boom, but even getting jewelry now is battle of who sees it first and who is willing to pay $150+ for a necklace. I remember passing on a necklace that was $50 because it was "expensive" at the time. It goes for $200 now. But calculating all that in, the rest of my wardrobe is suddenly worth a hell ton more.

I thought prices would plummet because of coronavirus, but now it seems like prices are up going up even faster. I wonder if Japanese lolitas are pissed at Westerners for driving prices up? Or is it Chinese lolitas more than Westerners? At this point I don't really know.

any relationship where the distance is a factor in your ability to meet up. if you live 15, 20, 30 mins away, the distance doesn't really affect you. at 1hr it's a factor in whether you can meet up or not, so I'd consider it long-distance.

>> No.10393236

How do y'all even begin to trust someone enough to go into a LDR? Like I was in the military and dudes/chicks couldn't even go two weeks without fucking someone they weren't supposed to. Not to mention the culture shift is gearing away from loyalty, if not monogamy entirely.

Then there's the whole, lacking physical aspect, I've got plenty of internet friends and a girlfriend that you can't hold hands or even go watch a movie with is basically just a lewd internet friend.

For me it wasn't even a question because holy shit I've never met someone like that in my entire life. "Soulmate" is a stupid word but it was so easy and fun to talk to each other and we had eerily similar outlooks/values/attitudes plus all the same interests. We've been together about 6 years now and are married. No regrets.

We both value honesty very highly and our rule is "if you're interested in someone else let's just discuss it and decide what to do together". We discuss crushes/sexual interest in other people openly and there's really no incentive to cheat or lie as a result.

Well you're on 4chan so mystery solved.
I had trust issues for most of my life because I was paranoid that everyone being nice to me so they could screw me over at a later point, so I was afraid to get close to anyone, much less date them. Then I started developing mutual feelings for a girl I'd known for years and we started dating and I realized that most people were definitely going to stab me in the back but some weren't. And then she cheated on me, so fuck that shit. I'm in my mid 30s now, anyone my age that's still single is single because there's something very wrong with them.
