Sometimes when I post group photos on my instagram, I shoop the ugly ones to make them look nicer. I also make the fat ones look skinnier. Not by a lot since that would make it too obvious, but just enough to make them look better. I think it's only fair since they make me look better by comparison

I'm honestly terrified by my two friends dating. It's made them into annoying altered versions of themselves. Complete with going back on shit they were adamant about for years because they're 'truly together'. But mainly because the upcoming con room is in my name. I am really terrified the honeymoon period is going to end right before or during the con. I'd really rather not have what has been a decently drama free environment explode into bullshit. Resulting in me likely footing the bill. But I know if I even bring my concerns up, I'm the totally jealous single friend.

I recently fell out of love with my fiancé. It just happened like two weeks ago, thinking about being with him or even him general doesn't give me the butterflies anymore. It's crazy, all feelings for him just stopped.
However, I won't break it off with him because I already met his family and he's met mine, they love me, and it feels like everyone in the world knows we have a perfect cute relationship. I'm marrying him in February, And I feel like I'm just too far into this relationship to quit now.
So I'm just going to fake my happiness the rest of my life.

I'm in love with my best friend I met at my comm but she isn't lesbian. I buy her lolita all the time and she feels bad because she knows my feelings for her and feels like it's not right for her to accept the clothes even if she loves them.

I helped her get her current boyfriend and he's a total jerk and constantly forces sex out of her even though she she has vaginismus so it's painful and she doesn't like it. And yet all I can do is cry knowing she's with someone who treats her like sex toy and has no interests in her otherwise but she won't leave him.

The guy I've had a crush on recently got a girlfriend. The only thing that's kept me from being too depressed is the fact that she's honestly really ugly and I feel so much better in comparison. Even on my worst days I look hot next to her. So I like posting selfies right when she does because I get more attention. It's petty but eh.

Not that anon but this happens all the time with gay shit. There's a lot of girls who will date the most disgusting and selfish of men and then ignore girls who genuinely care for them. Obviously in anon's case her friend is straight so it's never happening, but for a while I was fucking a bisexual girl who I really liked but she wouldn't leave her cheating, lying, alcoholic fiance (he knew we were fucking, had no problem with it becausehe found the idea hot). Then she had the nerve to feign heartbreak when I got sick of her shit and left to find a girl who would actually value me. Since he dumped her (quelle surprise) every time she's back in town she tries to hook up with me again, I don't know how low she must think my self-esteem is for me to even entertain the thought of being douchey fiance's sloppy seconds.

I have no social life. The only people I talk to are people at university, and while I can hold convos with them with ease, that's it.

I just have no idea how to even start anything up. I have no friends. I am too sensitive to sound to handle going out. Ever since I was a kid I had no friends and now at 23 it feels like I"ll always have to stay like this now.
Everyone already has their own circles and it feels like it's impossible to get between any of them. I've never been in a relationship either and I highly doubt that's ever happening when I barely leave the house.

So that's why I'm planning on ending it when I turn 25. It's not a super set date or anything, but I feel like if nothing has changed by then, it never will. What's the point of forcing myself to live and work only to go home to nothing. I'm ugly too so I don't have anything going for me at this point.

Man, I'm crushing hard on one of my best male friends. We've known each other since we were both in our mid teens, and he's been there for me through thick and thin for almost 10 years now and have watched me hook up with one manipulative douchebag after another. I wonder if he'd secretly look down on me if he knew that I like him and would like to spend the rest of my life with him.

It's a weird thing to confess and I wasn't sure how else to frame it; I'm too cripple to really make my own stuff, too poor / not into brand enough to save up for more then the occasional white elephant that grabs my fancy.

But then I bought one handmade dress second hand (for cheap) and somehow fell in love with wearing dresses other people made.

I really admire the effort people make and people often are surprised that what I'm wearing wasn't made by a semi-professional.

dude calm down, you clearly can't tell the difference between loving someone and being in love. you need to take a chill pill, if necessary limit contact with the person you have a crush on, and move on.
you will never have a relationship where you are permanently, forever in love. that is a trick created by body chemistry which WILL wear off after around 2 years maximum. 'love' is a long term commitment, trust and feeling of safety in someone, and occasionally you might 'fall in love again' but that's really not a for-granted deal. many people fall into the trap of chasing the high of falling in love over and over again, but that is a reckless and unhealthy way to live - you'll fuck up yourself and everyone else who gets burned by your jumping onwards.

>not necessarily sins...
>incoming blog tho

I have pretty much always been plus-sized.
I gained a lot of weight during college and have recently started working out a bit to lose that weight. I like being a "big" girl though and I want to plateau around the upper bound of the healthy range for my height and build.
I have always been tall--am almost 6ft--and much broader in build than most people. (my shoulder width is ridiculous, almost 46cm).

I love lolita, and am pretty addicted to hunting for gets. I'm very interested in being healthier, but I just personally never want to be smol.

every once in a while it sucks when the concept of my largeness bucks up against the sometimes fragile masculinity of potential male suitors but I really wouldn't have it any other way.
because I lack a confrontational personality I appreciate that my frills and my height/width combo acts as a force field to repel time-wasters.

I feel safe and pretty being a thwomp-lita.
I work hard on building my wardrobe and aspire for all my coords to one day be tops. I think smaller lolitas are gorgeous! not more gorgeous, not less gorgeous, just also gorgeous.

and I know I'm not at all the average, but I'd like to see some dedicated brawny lolitas more often.

this is my personal view of the form I look most beautiful in and I like to discuss it sometimes. but some femmes are understandably on the defensive, and assume that praise of qualities they do not possess is a value judgment against the ones they do.

I just want to say the positive things I feel about myself and my goals; not in some secret judgment or competition or internal illness.


tl;dr I'm a tall chubby woman who loves lolita, food, switching, and being built like a wall. I don't like being invisible in-board but I don't like fights to start either. I lurk every single day because I'm not a fan of fb and no irl comm. lolita has easily beat all else out to be my greatest passion.

If he's single, go for it. Chances are he's probably salty as fuck about seeing you with douchebags and is constantly thinking about how he'd treat you so much better than them. You know, like all the stories from beta orbiters about how they they wish they could make a move on their female bff who's also their manic pixie dream girl but she always dates assholes instead.

That being said, can you honestly say you wouldn't get bored of him eventually considering your admitted horrible taste in men?

You should be collecting their money in advance anyway. If this isn't part of the room requirements already, I'd make it that way before the con hits. You don't have to make it about them, just talk about money being tight here and there so it doesn't seem out of the blue. If they make drama about a reasonable request of everyone paying up front upon check-in, they aren't really going to be any better at their word 3 days later and I wouldn't room with them.

I've been following lolita and jfash on 4chan for 10 years now but I've never worn it myself.
The most I've worn is toned down mori and a failed decora attempt at a con once (when it was still a thing)
I live in a rural place where you don't see many alt fash so I was always too afraid (and I was pretty chubby too)....
So the result is I know a lot about the lolita and jfash history but I don't even wear it.
Now that I've finally lost weight and gained more confidence to at least wear it to events, I'm probably too old.

I've been having second thoughts about my friend who I've been with for nearly a decade..

We got into anime/cosplay and things of the sort together at the same time/age and helped each other grow from it, we've had many a good times (and bad times but that comes with the good)

But lately I realize I only have fun with them at a con setting and when we specifically talk about weeb related things
It feels like our "friendship fire" has died out on my end, but not theirs.

I feel like such an asshole for suddenly wanting to break off our friendship (and I also don't think I'm ever going to find this good of a friend ever again considering it's hard for me to make friends, they kind of pushed their way into me without me really noticing) but for a couple of months to a year it's been nothing but negativity. I try to be there for them when they need me, but it's just been emotionally exhausting since this has been happening for a long time, and I can't vent back to them because they always shoot back with
>"you have no reason to complain anon when I have it so much worse"
>"you think thats bad? I have to deal with... etc"

They're not a jerk to me but I just can't seem to deal with SO much negativity from their end constantly being thrown at me, and I'm definitely starting to think our weeb relationship isn't worth staying for

The problem is I'm not sure how to break out of this friendship without them going ballistic, they have anger management issues (towards themselves), and I feel like they'll just try to throw themselves back into my life without me wanting to, and everybpdy will say it was my fault to begin with (I'm bad at talking about my feelings so nobody will understand my grief)

Also very afraid of seeing them at a con since we both frequent the same ones every year and them causing a scene

I have a bf who I really like. I haven't been him for a long time yet so I can't say that much how the relationship is gonna eventually turn out. Sometimes I think I will be with him forever sometimes I wanna break up with him immediately. Lately I have been feeling a lot attraction towards other lolitas. Especially girls. I just adore the feminine body and would definitely love the shit out of lolita girlfriend but I can't see myself having a sexual relationship with another female. It's weird since I'm super cuddly person. I don't know, maybe it's just fustration about the fact I'm emotionally hard to understand and I somehow think another girl would understand me better. My bf is so kind but lacks understanding and appreciation. I want to make someone happy by loving them, cooking to them, buying them small surprises and doing a lot fun stuff together. If a kind lolita suggested that we move together in the city I'm going to study I would probably accept.

Your feelings are valid, anon, that's no way to treat a friend. Write down how you feel, try to organize it, and bring it to them when they are calm. If they still blow up at you, they have a lot of growing up to do, and no amount of sticking around and sucking it up for the sake of friendship is going to fix that. No amount of backlash you get for confronting them is going to make it worth avoiding trying. They probably need a wakeup call and you only need to say it once. If they treat you badly, tell them how much that hurt you (calmly) and then the ball is in their court.

They may end up coming back to you later or might not, but stay strong and stand up for yourself. Learning this kind of backbone is good for your self esteem even if it hurts like fuck in the meantime. Speaking from experience, it'll get better even if that takes time and new friends.

e-mail your professors (you'd be surprised how understanding some of them can be), take advantage of mental health resources on campus, take things day by day. forced optimism can't hurt either. I used to flood my thought space with positive options and outcomes just to fight the giant Eeyore in there.

Even if this semester doesn't end as good as you like it to, you can always take a semester off to work on yourself and then return. There's isn't just one singular way to achieve your degree. you can do this--build yourself up and encourage yourself for the rest of the week!

I'm just a lazy socially inept piece of shit. Since I graduated from high school like 5 years ago I haven't done ANYTHING with my life besides studying English to waste it by browsing the chans. I've been wasting my time trying to get a therapist but our shit public health system keeps going on strikes all year long, I'm currently on meds unchecked and perpetually scared of the future.
I'm fat, I'm dumb as a brick, I have fucking strabismus, I don't have money and can't get myself to trust people enough to actually get out and try to get a job because the sole act of talking makes me want to cry like a bitch.
My parents keep telling me that I'm sick and that I need to get better before moving on but I can't take this shit anymore, all day long I sit on my room alone staring at the ceiling without energy for anything except wishing for death.
I don't deserve the things I have, I don't deserve the love and support my parents give me, I just want to die, holy shit I want to die.
I'm not even a lolita or a cosplayer, but browsing the board is maybe the only thing that brings some emotion into my numb life.

I mention my girlfriend and she starts bragging about how perfect her relationship is with her fiance and how they dance and kiss in the middle of the street and whatever more. I ask her for a single thing (like, if she likes eggs or whatever) and she immediately starts just talking about how her mother is bad to her and that she has no money and starts mentioning every single bad thing that could had happened to her.

But shit really hit the fan when another friend and I mentioned something about lolita.

Have a serious think about whether the emotional labour you're doing for them is actually being reciprocated. If it isn't, cut them off. I have two categories of crazy friends: the ones who are a pain in the ass but would walk over burning coals to pass me the blunt on a bad day, and the ones who are just a pain in the ass and actually couldn't give a shit about my life at all. And the ones who don't care about you are usually the ones drowning you in negativity. Yes, they will probably flip out if you cut them off, but it's worth the relief of not dealing with their shit anymore. I mean what's the worst that's gonna happen, a month of whining on fb?

I'm fairly happy, I have a kind and beautiful boyfriend and we're mutually devoted. I started a good job that is the base of my career. My finances and health will get better. My lolita wardrobe is nice and I'm looking forward to working on cosplays without concern.

I still have flashes of suicidal thinking and crippling anxiety but knowing I survived far enough to achieve huge goals means everything to me.

>> No.9258564

I want to be more active online, posting cute selfies on IG and maybe even have a lifestyle lolita blog. My fiancé and current friend group are supportive of me and I think it would improve my self esteem a lot. I also dream about being somewhat e-famous because it might be fun, although it's not my end goal or anything.
However every time I take a selfie in lolita and am about to upload it, the thought crosses my mind that 'normie' people from my past like ex-friends, high school or uni classmates might somehow find it and see I think of me as that quiet mousy girl who went full on weird weeaboo loser and wears stupid baby dresses. Strangers making fun of me don't bother me as much, but for some reason the idea of old classmates sharing my pictures and making fun of me is mortifying. Especially if they themselves are very successful now.
Does anyone else feel like this?

I feel you anon. I feel I already get this because I was that loser weeb in high school. Despite being successful my high school classmates went and became in some measures more successful.

But do your own thing. High school doesn't matter anymore. It doesn't matter what they think honestly. For me they are so far away in different parts of the country that it doesn't matter anymore. And remember that if they think like that of you, they aren't worth thinking about.

I don't care anymore. I know I'll never be a Merill Lynch board member or an MD-PhD making breakthroughs but I did well and I am doing well enough to support the hobbies I love in a field that I also love. And if you feel fulfilled in your life, don't let that get to you.

I have had friends like this too, and I noticed that if I stay friends with them and just start calling them out on their negativity bullshit, one of two things happens:
1-they actually listen, apologise, and try to do better
2-they get soured on the friendship now that it is not an emotional landfill for them anymore, and they drift away/leave on their own terms

usually it's 2 though. most of them already know they're dumping their shit on you and just do it because they can. some never learn, others get a clue once they've lost a few friends. I figure this way, it's a win-win for me, plus I might have caused someone to eventually be less of a shitheel.

so if you can't bring yourself to actually dump this friend, at least stick up for yourself. you can't lose.

I guess what makes it worse for me is that we're in a tiny country so there's a much higher chance of running into each other (IRL or online) and that I was in a program for gifted kids so many of my classmates ARE on the track to be (so to speak) Merrill Lynch board members or MD-PhDs making breakthroughs. And here I am, wearing oversized doll clothes and taking selfies where I try to look kawaii uguu~

I feel out of love with my boyfriend and now I'm terribly in love with an ex friends with benefits of mine.
Like looking at him just hurts, he's sexy as hell but standoffish and probably wouldn't give a a second thought if I died tomorrow. He also is generally shitty towards chicks because he sleeps around but I just want to be in his spotlight only.
Half of the attraction is that a lot of girls lust after him but I'm the one that's closest to him, and I get super jealous when he's even around other chicks.. dudes not even my fucking boyfriend but I can't stop obsessing with him.
Meanwhile my boyfriend loves me to pieces and trusts me but he's always cracking jokes that I thought was just a phase and it would eventually go away and he'd mature but I was wrong. It's annoying, and almost is becoming a deal breaker for me.
He has a great body (body builder type) but his actions come off as more cute than manly and sexy and it's his personality that's pretty much turning me off.
He's shy and has no backbone despite the fact he looks like he could snap someone in half.

And I know my future is secured with my boyfriend and I know i would never be able to have a solid relationship with ex benefits guy because he just has a shit personality.
But I still lust after the other guy and not my boyfriend and it kinda makes me want to kill myself

I still have strong feelings for my ex but I keep telling myself that it would never work out.

I was supposed to go to DragonCon to see him but I decided at the last minute to go to another con instead.

Part of me feels really bad but another part of me doesn't want that commitment.

I don't hide it around him at all and I sound like a creep sometimes and he just isn't in the least bothered by it. It's almost like he's just accepted that part of me or just ignores it so impressively that it doesn't interfere with his everyday life.

And that standoffishness just draws me to him even more, while my boyfriend is sending me text messages like this. -_-

your current bf sounds amazing. he's fit, silly, and emotionally accessible. Like, if I had someone that honest and uncomplicated next to me I would jump him on the daily.
srsly...especially if that means he'll make silly jokes while we fuccc
he maybe even hurts inside himself, and his little jokes are part of the optimism that keeps him alive for you. that's real empathy if, when I'm sad or unhappy, all he wants to do is cheer me up and listen to me.

I'd give it to him big time. you may wanna watch it. some girl somewhere is eyeing your sweet, buff doe of a man. he seems trustworthy and loyal, but the one thing that'll make him turn away to another person (no matter how much it hurts him) is if you betray him.

I guess I really didn't see him from that point of view, and he's really worth a lot to me, and I need to start treating him that way. I know it's gonna be hard to stop obsessing over that other guy but if my boyfriend really is the one meant for me I need to focus only on him.. I realize I've been acting like a greedy dumbass, I really haven't ever had someone as "perfect" as him before, so I should be thankful.

I'm disappointed by my local comm. They don't ever plan events...

I wish this one lolita in my comm never became part of us. A friend brought her in, and she would awkwardly dress in half-lolita, or offbrand/Walmart attempts at lolita but since everyone in the comm is pretty relaxed no one bothered her about it. It's fine, people can improve their lolita style.

But people don't change their personalities, and attitudes, and she is the most loudmouthed SJW/vegan/animal rights/PoC activist on this goddamn planet. It wouldn't be such a problem if she wasn't the kind of person to also stomp all over your opinion or pov if she disagreed with you. She's also desperately trying to gather a large part of the comm as her friends, so she's been toning it down and acting sweet and nice and planning meets, but she's ruined friendships between some of the girls now (by being a damn snake, telling half-truths and lies to this side and that) and it makes me so upset. Luckily my closest lolita friends are still good friends with me, even though she's tried to drive a wedge between my bestie and I by calling herself the same. I feel like she ruined our lolita senpai when all the girls got along and I really just want her GONE.

Unfortunately I think our comm is too relaxed, and people just... are way too forgiving.

Different anon but in my comm, if you're not already well known then nobody will come to your meetup. I've seen it happen over and over again. I've heard people outright say that they'd never attend a meetup organized by someone they haven't met several times, because they just assume it's going to be shit. I usually want to give these newbie meets a chance but since there's only one or two people RSVPing, they just get cancelled. It's pretty depressing.

These fucking feels. I don't have any real friends to talk to so I'll seek advice here. I'll keep it short;

>Homeschooled entire life. No friends, no nothing.
>Meet guy in online game. He lives an hour away.
>Asks me out after like a week of contact.
>Meet up, actually hit it off.
>We date for a couple of weeks, then he goes on a month-long holiday. Fucks his old friend and about 10 other chicks while he's away. Possibly irrelevant.
>Comes back, okay we're a couple now.
>2.5 years of him fucking around behind my back (doesn't actually/physically cheat)
>Shit happens, eventually we stay together.
>Next February will be 4 years together.
>Next July I will be the same age that he was when we met.
>Have only ever been with him.
>He's finally serious about the relationship.

I've come to realize that, while I do care about him, we're basically best friends who bang. The only reason I've stayed with him for so long is because he's all I ever knew. There are just too many issues that I have with him, as a person, to have a lifelong relationship with him.

I'll be 23 next year and just want to go out and.. Be single. Not be a girlfriend for once. I want to do what normal young people do before I grow to resent both him and our relationship.

But he's an emotional wreck who was heavily (emotionally and physically) abuses by his two other serious relationships.

I have no idea how to approach the situation.

I really like sweet lolita, especially old school sweet, but am scared to actually wear it (i've accumulated quite a few pieces) because despite actually being female I'm built like a man (man-jaw, wide shoulders, narrow hips) and I'm worried people will think I'm a sissy/crossdresser

I'm built simularly. Wide shoulders are one thing, depending on how wide. There are certian items you can look for that will minimize them. Hips are a non-issue and are actually a blessing for brand tights.

You can probably work with certain wigs and makeup tricks to help with the jaw issues. I like using long wigs and boleros to help minimize my broad-shoulderness and then go with less puffy sleeves. Chiffon is really great.

If it bothers you, wear it to places where people are less likely to assume you're into that stuff. Conventions if you go to them are nice as well as large meets. Otherwise, build up a collection of food prints, sweet/classic type of prints or non-print to wear otherwise.

I'm a guy who wears lolita and I've been active in my local community for two years now. Everyone loves me, they always say I'm an example of a 'non-creepy brolita' or 'brolita done right' and I'm basically the only guy they've accepted into the group (some obvious creepers try to join us every now and then but they always get shunned away). I think it has a lot to do with how mellow and relaxed I am externally, but internally I'm starting to feel messed up. I can't help but compare my features to all the girls there, my hands, shoulders, height etc. and I just feel so inferior. The trainwreck started when I started losing weight to fit into better dresses, and the constant praise and compliments made me go full eating disorder, I'm like a fucking skeleton now. I completely avoid the sun to keep my skin as pale as possible, I spend a stupid amount of time on hair and skincare, but it doesn't feel like enough, I got my facial hair lasered and I desperately want to order female hormones too but I feel like I'm losing myself to this obsession to be prettier. Plus I basically blow all my money on clothes. This fashion is practically my reason for living and I hate myself for it.

I understand where your problems are coming from. You are wearing a fashion primarily meant for females to wear. You are surrounding yourself with girls wearing this fashion as well. The fashion is for a fairly large part about looking hyper-feminine.
You're comparing yourself to girls, and if girls comparing themselves to runway models is unrealistic, you comparing yourself to girls and wanting to look as feminine as them is literally an unattainable standard. You will probably never feel fully satisfied if your goal is to look more womanly than actual women, because no matter how much weight you lose you're always going to have broader shoulders or bigger hands or I don't fucking know.
And that's fine. You sound like you aren't trans or anything, you just want to be able to compete with the girls in your comm. And maybe you can do so in coording, but trying to compete by wanting to look exactly like a dainty little girl is just not going to make you happy.
Try to compare yourself to other brolitas instead.
(Besides the body image issues lolita obviously shouldn't be the only thing that's getting you out of bed in the morning either - try talking to a therapist, depending on how well healthcare is provided for in your country. Also maybe set yourself a limit on how much you want to spend on clothes a month.)

My boyfriend of 3 years broke up with me recently. It's tearing me apart because I'm still in love with him. He says that he fell out of love with me, but I just think that he just finally got out of the honeymoon phase and mistook it for falling out of love. I know its weird to think it lasted that long, but he always revered me really highly and put me on a pedestal. I enjoyed it and never saw it as an issue, but I can't convince him that he's making a mistake because he's really adamant about all of this and I know that I felt like I all of a sudden didn't want to be in a relationship once I got out of the honeymoon phase. I want him back more than anything and we were like two halves of one whole. There's just no more fun in my life with him gone. I need to find a way to get him to get back with me or else I'll crumble. He went to every convention with me, he was the dad to some of my dolls, he bought me lolita - he was amazing. I thought we were going to get married and I know being apart from each other at different schools won't help with falling back in love. Life really sucks and I wonder if I should even bother living it anymore honestly. All the things that we did together that I loved only cause me pain now and I never thought they would. There is no more happiness left in my world.

I broke up with my bf of over two years. We were exactly like you descriped and I thought we would be together our whole lives. This is not a perfect example as he turned into a kinda abusive shit head and I had a weird feeling about him the whole time we were together but I brushed it off as anxiety. The biggest problem with him was that we didn't have our own lives, he just came into mine and basically made himself involved in every last of my interests. I thought that was cute but it wasn't in the end. I had nothing own and that was a huge factor making me anxious and hard for me to break up. Of course, eventually I had to break up with him because the situation was toxic and the person he turned after that completely revealed his true colors. What I'm trying to say, maybe your boyfriend needs a more personal space and that's the reason he feels as he feels? You can always try to talk about the reasons he wanted to break up but also remember to respect his choice. It's the best for you both. My ex didn't, hates me for breaking up with him but agrees it was for the best and on the top of that decided to shit talk and bully me. Don't be that guy anon no matter how bitter you come.

I've been with my boyfriend for six months, and it's basically both of our first serious relationship. I love him, but he's clingy to the point of being overbearing. If I'm going somewhere with my friends, he gets upset if i don't tell him the minute i make plans. I lived on the east coast for a while, and I got into the habit of going to conventions over there even after moving back to the west coast. He can't go to Katsu with me because of work, and even though he doesn't tell me directly not to go, I can tell he doesn't want me to. We're both pretty solitary/friendless people, but whenever I do talk to some of my friends online, he seems to feel neglected. He's also very passive aggressive, and always dropping 'hints' (like shoujo manga girl style) that he hopes that I'll pick up on. When I don't, he gets upset. I've told him again and again that I'm extremely oblivious and just am not able to notice when he does that, but he does it anyways and still gets upset every time. He's so emotionally dependent on me, and gets depressed if I can't see him often. Before we got together he was already depressed, though when we started dating he was a little less so. We briefly lived together and he was very happy and we barely had any problems, but complications arose and I had to move back with my parents. After I moved back, he started getting depressed again, and I don't know what to do. Whenever we argue, he ends up making me feel guilty, even if I'm upset, and I end up having to just swallow being upset because I don't want to make him sad. I've considered breaking up a few times because it takes such an emotional strain on me every time it happens, but I never end up doing it.

Sounds similar to my case. I've been with my SO for almost two years now, and she actively stalks every place I'm in and pins every post that might trigger her jealousy on me, even if I'm doing something completely different at the time. She'll go to places like /v/ or /vg/ and see a post where someone is talking about being annoyed by their gf or posting a picture of some girl while saying said girl is attractive, and she'll yell at me and claim it's me and call me a liar refuse to listen otherwise. When I'm busy with something she'll instantly decide she's being ignored and then blow up on me later when I note that she's being passive aggressive. If I mention aesthetics of any other person, it triggers her jealousy.

She accuses me of cheating when I'm in the middle of spending time with her. She'll claim it's my fault that she's prone to jealousy, and when she's overwhelmed she'll claim she's unattractive and I'm only with her out of "pity" and all of my compliments are lies and etc etc.

I was in Lolita for a little over a year, made a really good friend. Recently I decided to leave, but for a completely different reason then I told her. I feel bad but whenever people ask me about it I make up different reasons, but it just doesn't make me happy anymore...nothing does. My doctors told me either I have serve bipolar with psychotic symptoms or schizophrenia. The only way to determine if I have schizophrenia is to wait a year and see if my brain starts to deterirate. If I do have bipolar though meds won't work well with me after we did a test to sequence my liver enzymes and see what medication Id be responsive too, it came back I'd have very negative reactions to almost all the drugs. I haven't even been able to tell my close friends either, it makes me sad selling off the things that once gave me such joy, but sadder I'm not more broken up about it.

Usually I don't give a shit about the opinions of others on who I cosplay. I'm a fattychan, but nowhere near hambeast. I make sure my cosplay fit me well and are well made. I don't let myself look stuffed in my cosplays. I take extra care when there is a lot of skin showing, making sure it works with my body. But my latest cosplay dream is Moana. I love the movie so much but I'm worried that people will hate on me but only for being bigger but for being white. I've never been so nervous about a cosplay before. I'm hoping to lose more weight by the con, but even then I'm still worried about being called out for cosplaying a Polynesian while being white.

I get more turned on by thoughts of fucking other men than actually doing stuff with my boyfriend. Like fantasies.

Is that bad?

I had agreed with this dude that a girl he saw at his work(Share Tea) was me... Thing is he lives in California and I live in Texas. Also I thought he was joking so I went along, hours later he talks about giving "me" free drinks. Now I'm concerned about my doppelganger will freak out when he addresses her by my name (probably lmao) but still it's not making me feel guilty cause this just happened and I'm in too deep, should I find her and tell her? Or let things play out?

I went with my MtF ex to a Halloween party together, and we wore lolita together. They're pretty small, so they can fit in all of my dresses. At the end of the night, I think it was pretty hot. I guess I'm a chaser or predator or something, oh well.

I really wish there was a good opportunity to get them to wear lolita again.

Also I think I like hanging out with my ex way too much. It's probably really unhealthy to enjoy cuddling so much with someone you dated five years ago, but I'd rather take this then try to find other guys to date over Tinder or something. Idk.

I spend far too much money on otome games and buying merch. Probably going to be forever alone, since normies wouldn't understand so cuts them out. And I'm 24 so most people my age that are not creepy have significant others already.

I'm bitter because my best friend and cosplayer-in-crime did a sexy cosplay recently from a game that just released that she doesn't even PLAY and she's gotten way more praise than I ever have for costumes I busted my ass on and I'm way more jealous than I have any right to be.

She's also talking about selling prints of herself and I can't stop rolling my eyes. I'm sad because it feels like she's selling out but maybe I'm just a shitty best friend.
