Even if you might still need to lose a bit or exercise, etc., you can be sure you look better now than you did then so go for it. If you get any bad comments, ignore. Your life, your story. Just have fun. You made the effort to lose weight so now do what you've been wanting to do.

Breathe. Calm down. Relax.

You'll make it. You haven't wasted a year of your life, the school gap ended up there and you filled that timegap by doing what you love.

Moving does put strain on relationships, yeah. I just lost my fiancee of four years because I moved back to California three years ago and the LDR strain broke it. Your parents are having a lot of strain, do you know a cause? If there's a cause, you could maybe try to help or at least put a mattress down for one of them to fall on when the proverbial kick in the head happens.

That's true. I guess I really love her faceup since its by someone I really admire. I do have a Unoa Lusis that that faceup artist can do when she chooses to do commissions again.

>> No.9095157

Most shows have at least 1-2 fan service/summer vacation/Foreign trip/exercise clothes/PE type episodes, are you sure NONE of the ones you are interested in do? Or are you just trying to feel superior that they do not? I'm sure if you googled 'character you like' + fanservice, some episodes would be listed. Many guys also really like modest, tsundere-acting girls or shy, geeky characters too but not to the point of those characters attracting attention hordes.

But if you want your chance at the mainstream fawning neckbeard drool then you have to give them what THEY like, not what YOU like. That's the trade off.

Have a nice photo session with her, then pack her away for at least a month and see if you miss her. You could do the same with the dresses too though multiple colorways of a special set or even a common dress will always have that one color that really looks the best on you so that's always my choice since I just don't do multiples of a print. I usually care what looks better on me than which colorways I like most. Honestly when I see girls collect multiples of a print I think 'well, they must have been having a good sale to grab them up in several colors'. I know that is NOT always the case but it still gives me that feeling.

What hobbies do you have outside of cosplay? I made a decent amount of friends through Warhammer when I first moved.

As for my own feels, if my love life could stop being a shitty comedy movie, that'd be great. It shouldn't be this fucking hard. Since when is everyone polyamourous god damnit.

I feel so sick.
Yesterday my boyfriend (which I financially and emotionally depend on) and I decided to go out and see a movie. I dressed up, casual lolita/otome-ish like always. After we got of the car and I took a second to reapply some lipstick we got into a fight and he told me I was not casual enough, it's annoying we can't go out casually anymore (I was actually happy to get a chance to wear something other than work clothes). He told me I should stop getting "wannabe-pretty", noone wants to see me like this and he neither.
Ever since I'm devastated. He acts like nothing happened and constantly asks me whats wrong with me today. I'm so depressed I can't even look at anything lolita realted; my whole confidence is gone. I literally packed all of my dresses away in a box, deleted every lolita bookmark and unliked all the lolita fb pages, so I wouldn't see anything about it. I even went straight to the feels thread on cgl, without checking the usual threads. I don't know what to do.
If I talk about it we might break up and I might end up on a coach of my mom with 2 cats and no job in sight.
If I bottle it up I'm afraid I'll do something really stupid at some point.
I don't even know why I'm posting this on a naon board, but I don't really have friends.

Anon, talk to him. Tell him what he said, and that he fucked up. If he appologizes sincerely and freaks out at himself for hurting you, then see where the relationship goes. If not, bail and bail hard. He might have just had a brain fart and meant "I wish we both wore normal clothes together" but "wannabe-pretty" is pretty damn harsh and fucked up to say so I don't know.

Being on your mom's couch isn't the worst thing in the world. Yes, it'll suck for a bit, but you can save up and move out soon enough. Don't stay in a relationship that breaks you out of fear of money. Money can always be made, but self-confidence is harder to acquire once someone belittles you like that.

I'm so mad at myself. I'm usually an extremely cautious person but for some reason I just tossed all the clothes in the washer without thinking. The strange thing is he's been so calm about the whole thing; he never raised his voice nor got visibly upset. He was able to log in to his Pokemon Go account on my phone and that's all he was using his phone for really. He thinks he can just replace the battery if this second rice soak doesn't work.

Sometimes I do think that it's okay to know that youre sad and accept that you're feeling this way.

After a while, if there isn't someone you can talk to, even for free counseling, you have to find something told look forward to. Get down to why you're feeling this way or focus on what you can change. Is your career where you want it to be? Is your body where you want to be?

Force yourself to push towards a small goal just to give yourself something to look forward to

I know it's difficult to get over someone, but I hate seeing him upset. It sucks seeing him sad and me not being able to help at all.

Never be someone's second choice. You want to be friends, fine, but he's looking at you as a romantic back burner. He is not being your friend. He's being friendly, but he's never going to just be a friend. Just watch, he's already made moves on you and it's only going to get more blatant.

I'm hoping he doesn't make any more moves on me, because as much as I honestly see him as a friend, I still have some feelings for him that I just prefer to ignore when possible. It's a shame because I had never had a friend so close to me as him (he's also the only person I know who understands lolita and doesn't think it's a costume)

If I must be honest, he lied a lot and was really cold to me towards the end of the relationship, and he does feel guilty for that, which is why he agreed to the Tracer thing.

But I am moving on. If me and him were to get together again, it wouldn't work because of the mistrust from the previous relationship. Maybe I'll find someone at a convention or something, and, if all else fails, I still have cats to cuddle

Anon, sometimes stress can actually cause you to lose weight/be less heavy. Once I got out of a shitty/abusive situation and stopped living in stressland 24/7 I started to gain weight really quickly (went from 110 to 160lbs in something like 2-3 months?), despite diet staying the same still being as active as I had been before. Stress does some weird shit to your body.

Also, are you sure you're eating ENOUGH? Undereating can actually cause weight gain because it tricks your body into entering starvation mode -- those turning ALL calories into fat reserves so it doesn't die.

Chronic depression can also just make your body be really fucked up and cause your weight to do all sorts of stupid bullshit (especially if you're on medication for it).

Good luck with your routines though. I hope you figure things out.

Jesus fuck, how many times does "starvation mode" need to be debunked. It's not a thing that happens unless your body is on the verge of literally dying, and even then it doesn't work like you described.

You eat less when you're depressed. When you're stressed some people eat less, some people stress eat. When you're stressed your heart rate picks up and burns a little more calories as you fidget about. It's not fucking rocket science.

It really, really is.I can't even begin to tell you what a big improvement starting therapy was for me. I had to go to a few different therapists before I found one that I *clicked* with but in my experience: The scariest part is just making the appointment and going in for the first time, once you do that it loses a LOT of it's power to be terrifying.

This is going to sound harsh, but if your depression is affecting him and you refuse to get help you deserve to lose him. It's not fair on him, and it's not fair on yourself. Irrational fear isn't an excuse, because it's irrational and you know it.

When I first started going to therapy I brought my mum along, because I was scared too. She even did a lot of the talking early on. Maybe try bringing your husband to get you past this first step. It might even help him a bit if your depression is wearing on him too.

dude I feel ya. I've applied at so many places and waiting for an interview for at least one of them. I really want to go to the Midwest mega meet this year and the date is less than 5 weeks away.

Assuming that you're in the U.S., background checks are usually for more serious misdemeanors. I don't know if they'll bother calling your last employer though. Hopefully your new employer will be kinder. I understand being terrified though. I'm not looking forward to telling my interviewer why I longer work at my last job.

You should be open with the issue naturally but you should frame it with regard to your professional development.

You shouldn't say the job pays like shit, your boss sucks, and the hours are crap.

You should refer to your skills and how your previous job is simply unsatisfying. It's not that you want upward mobility (be careful because a lot of interviewers would be cautious of someone using jobs as a springboard because it means no company loyalty) but rather that you want to develop your skills and the company you're currently applying for is really the best for the job.

Bonus points if you can subtley refer to the management structure and things you hear people do work on in the company. That would show you have interest in what it is you're actually going to be doing and 'aren't' bullshitting about professional development.

Of course, this is all crap. Many interviews are crap. Do people REALLY give a shit about their professional development as much as they do money to pay the bills with a bit of upward mobility? No. Yet you need to make it a convincing white lie to get in and after a while you may begin to believe in that lie after a while. That's good enough.

Other tips involve asking a few light questions about the internal structure of the company and tasks such as 'What would an average day be like for me?' and etc.

TLDR; Put in some fluff but don't hamfist it.

I've honestly never heard of that. I feel adding more water would affect the circuitry even more but I'm a complete dunce when it comes to technology so maybe it does work. He took his phone apart and lined it with epoxy (or silicone? idk) to dry it out but it didn't work. We took it to a repair kiosk in the mall and apparently the screen just needed to be replaced because water got between it. So he's good to go!

I'll keep the distilled water in mind in case this ever happens again.

How I feel? helpless.
I need some advice anons.

So I am kind of in a bad financial situation. I have debt. Most of it is due to me being out of work, and the other potion from a form for uni getting lost in a process of some sort so I have to pay back my student allowance (welfare for students in my country).

So I went through my wardrobe to pull out things to sell. I sold a fair bit which sustained me while I looked for a job (barely). I just found a new job but I am barely making enough to live and just got a big "pay up or else notice". I managed to pay off that particular debt with my earnings and now I am pretty much flat broke. With 5k still to go.

That is the situation and here is what I need advice on.
A friend asked for me to hold a few of the items I decided to sell for her because she is out of work as well (I agreed to a long term hold then). I have been holding them for like 2 months now (maybe more...) with no payment date organised in the future, because she still hasn't got a job. I'm feeling really helpless with my financials and just want to explode. I'm looking at having to sell all the things I was hoping to keep while her items are still sitting there.

>Is she being inconsiderate, knowing my financial situation to expect me to keep holding?
>should I keep to the agreement we made considering my situation?
>is it impolite to ask her about potential payment?

I just don't know how to approach this. I just want to get this debt gone.

You should tell her the truth. That you've sold all the other things and really need the money for the ones you are holding. Apologies that you cannot hold them longer, because that is sincere but ask her understanding of the situation and your needs as well.

Agreeing with >>9098864. If she's a true friend she'll understand. If she's truly interested she'll set up a payment plan of some sort. I'm guilty of holding out on and on to things for my family when they have no real interest.

Case in point:
>moving to new city
>cleared out all kinds of stuff for a yard sale
>uncle wants to have joined sale since he has a lot of stuff to get rid of too
>on a Friday tell him I want the sale the next day (Saturday) because we'll be moving the following weekend
>flips out and says that's not enough time, we need a permit (or something), etc
>do yard sale myself the next Friday and sell a lot
>aunt finds out through my mom and proceeds to throw a fit
>don't really care because I wasn't coming back to my old city just so we could have a joined yard sale

I was also holding onto a few furniture pieces for my mom but when I told her I didn't have the space anymore she gladly took them back.

So, you do what's best for you and your friend can be understanding like my mom or flip out like my aunt and uncle. Based on her reaction you'll find out if she's a true friend and/or truly interested in your things.

Perhaps it's what you're eating that's causing the stomach fat? I'm similarly active/sensibly eating as you and when I lived with my in-laws for a month I ate Mexican food everyday. Although everything was as healthy as Mexican food can get and I ate within my caloric range, I still got a tummy pooch (probably from all those damn delicious tortillas).

Try doing some ab exercises and be sure to work your entire core; the sides, upper, and lower abs all play a part in creating a flat stomach. Also, seamless shapewear couldn't hurt.

Thank you. I'm in therapy currently, and my therapist doesn't think that I need medication. Although, he was sick last week so he hasn't heard yet how bad it's gotten. I'm not opposed to it, in any case. I do think that stress might be the source of the weight gain? I have lost one inch in my waist over the last 7 months. Thinking about cutting down on gym time and instead doing things like biking to work, dancing, and going on more walks outside. The commute to and from the gym eats up most of my evenings and I think I might be happier/less stressed if I use that time to socialize and relax than work out. But at the same time, I don't want to lose the progress I've already made.

Food allergies come with all kinds of side effects. You could have a mild case that makes you bloat and store fat. Weed out dairy to see if you have a mild intolerance, it's usually the culprit. If not then go through your diet and try each ingredient to find the one. Though I also suggest a nutritionist for help.

He's such a good man. It might cramp my style a little to have my dad there, especially since that probably means I'll be bringing my son as he'll have no sitter, but I'm so grateful that he's willing to do this for me. I might take him up on it, if it won't mess up his schedule too much.

Luckily, my dad plays video games, D&D, and watches some anime. So he wouldn't be too out of place, though he might be annoyed by the louder congoers.

Never thought of that. I did used to be allergic to milk as a child, but I barely have dairy as an adult. I'll try cutting it out entirely and see if it makes a difference.

My grandmother who thinks it's cute to make racist ww2 jokes around my half Japanese husband knowing all about my nerd shit is the last thing I need in my life right now.
The best thing is when she said a shit tun of n-word jokes about my sisters boyfriend until she met him and he is /fit/ as fuck and she does not say shit now. Unfortunately my husband is too nice to do anything but smile and nod at the crazy lady.

High waisted skirts and custom make for everything with shoulders.

If you were allergic once it's most likely the culprit because allergies don't normally quit. Hopefully within a few days you'll see improvement.

>fyi, he's just a little kid too, someone told him he didn't matter and now he needs this control over a family (that isn't his) to try to drown out the little kid in him that keeps yelling back that he doesn't matter

realize if the worst case scenario is that he hits you for 'disobeying', you can call the cops. that might also cause your mom to 'not forgive you' because she's tied her value to this relationship. but don't worry, she loves you but she might not love herself enough to be able to get to that point right now. but you and her will make amends eventually, just how life works.

Honestly, if you're nearing 30 and don't have a job, reliable transportation, or a savings you're fucked. Even with 2/3 you're never going to be a responsible adult at this point. You probably don't even realize the way you're operating is bad and you've only sabotaged your adult life up until this point.
I feel like I'm moving way ahead of some of my friends at this point and I didn't think it would be a huge issue but a couple of them just let me down really hard with how irresponsible they are recently.
I like these friends and we share a lot of the same interests and hobbies but I can't rely on them worth shit. Every time we're offline it's like:
>Let's get food! Ok now that we're here I can't order anything because I don't have money so I'm going to stand here and make you feel bad until you buy me something.
>Let's hang out! OK last minute I don't have my car available to me so instead can you come to me?
>Let's do this cosplay together! OK now that you've bought everything for your half of duo, I actually didn't buy anything for my half and the con is in 3 weeks so I don't think there's a point in me cosplaying at all anymore. You can't still wear your part if you want.
I always feel like I'm the mom in the group and like they hang out with me expecting me to take care of them. Like they plan a trip but I need to figure out directions, figure out how much money they need, eventually bail them out when they fuck something up (no transportation, no money, they forgot a phone charger so I have to let them waste my whole emergency battery, basically pack their bags for them because they can't get out of the fucking hotel-which is under my name-at checkout on their own). It's really stressful and I just can't deal with it anymore.
