I'm fucking fuming because some random cowardly ass no-dick cocksucker gave my kid sister a wedgie at OMGcon. Then he disappeared into the crowd.

If anybody saw it, he was wearing dinosaur pee-jays and she was dressed as the blue haired man from draMAGICal Murder.

She's only 12 and she had her underwear almost ripped clean off. If anyone knows who I may be talking about, PLEASE comment. The piss-shit-and-cum-cocktail-guzzling con security did JACK SHIT.

There's a meet coming up soon (on the 24th) and I'm really, really freaking out about it. I'm scared to death of going but I also don't want to be a lone lolita for the rest of forever.

I think the first thing you need to do is stop making excuses. Understand that you have control over what you buy to eat and, if the only food being presented to you is overly fatty, you can control how much of it you eat. Don't turn into an obsessive calorie counter but do maybe ask to use a smaller plate and when buying food for yourself spend a little longer finding a healthier option.

Why was your 12 year old sister wearing a thong that was readily accessible to grab

>> No.9517649

Not that anon, but it's not super uncommon for girls to wear thongs at that age? It might seem young to us oldfags but I still remember hearing girls when I was that age that had just gotten their first thong. It's one of those "you're a woman now" things like a period is.

Also, shit happens. She could've leaned down to grab something and it have rode up. But based off what anon said originally, I'm guessing he grabbed both her pants and underwear and that caused it to rip when he pulled.

Had a friend who dated a guy that young when she was in her late 20s and it was a disaster. She was only with him so she could mooch a place to live off his parents.

We didn't know he was that young until he came to a friend's housewarming. Dude got completely blind-as-fuck plastered because he was 18 and thought that's what you do at parties. No one else paid attention to how much he was drinking, because none of us realised he was only 18, or that he was guzzling drinks as quickly as he could get his hands on them. Someone eventually clued in to the fact that he had alcohol poisoning when he disappeared for about an hour, because he had basically passed out in the spare toilet, covered in his own puke.

His girlfriend was off somewhere else having a catch-up and got mad that we didn't babysit his ass. We eventually did a rough count, based on what other people saw him drink, and estimated he downed a good 15-20 drinks in about three hours, before he ended up chain-puking in the bathroom.

They stayed together a few more years until she finished her masters. He proposed to her at one point, and she said yes (because otherwise she'd be homeless....). As soon as she got a new job, she dumped him, and found a new boyfriend. All in about the same week. It was kind of mind-blowing how fast it ended, but it was hardly surprising.

Not only that, it was easier to make friends back in the day. Nowadays, everyone has their group and rarely socialise outside of it.
Last many times I've tried to make new friends, I've either only received facebook page information (to go and like it) or be told that they only give their contact info out to their nearest friends.

I just want to go back to the old days, no social media, noone striving to become famous, people actually caring about the source material of their cosplay, people/cosplayers/photographers actually being there because they love popculture, etc.
I never thought I'd say this but.. I actually miss obnoxious cosplay teens. My last straw back in the day was 5 teenage girls shrieking "YAOI" and nearly deafening me, but I miss that. I want that back. I don't care about partying, fucking or sitting around with the same people all weekend, I want to meet new people and be a stupid nerd with fellow fans again.

I miss the yaoi crowd too. They still exist but they're not quite the norm and suddenly you're either a moral ruler or you're disgusting trash because fiction = reality kek
I do AAs and I always get anxious people will throw a shitfit at the mxm ships I draw being teens from whatever show, because apparently some folk think you're a pedo for liking cartoons fucking if they're not 18 (the magical age where everyone turns into a mature adult after the midnight of their 18th bday, makes me think these people were never
teens at all, or didn't know many teens. Anywho). This shit feels like it went full circle because I remember in the late 90's/early 2000s everyone going into hysteria about hentai and thinking all anime was weird japanese porn. Then we had peace and lj groups and whatever wank happened, everyone kept to themselves or on fandom wank and encyclopedia dramatica or here. Now we have blue hell.

I feel like I'm not going to make it to AX, but we will see. Not too bummed since I picked up my pass during the black Friday sale.

People wear thongs for non sexual reasons, like the fact that they are comfy and/or don't show lines. How sheltered are you? The first thong thing is pretty common, and is generally a joke by the mom. Better to curb it by having a parent joke about it/buy it than have them sneaking off to try and buy a thong by themselves to "act sexy".

I know a guy like that. He's always saying that the teenagers he dates are mature for their age, but they're really the opposite. It doesn't take long for them to wise up to what a loser he is and dump him. Women his age won't touch him with a ten foot pole. His best chance is to date someone who's as much of a loser as he is, but his standards are higher than they have any right to be.

I've thought about it, but I'd have to get myself in the right mindset. Like... I'd be terrified that I'd be wasting their time, especially if I can't fix myself right away. I know that's LITERALLY their job, they're supposed to help you but in the back of my mind that immense dread will be there thinking "they could be helping other patients right now, my problems aren't that bad anyway right, i'm just wasting their time".

I often have to stay stimulated to distract myself from these thoughts. But they're just distractions to what could ultimately be a bit of a problem.

Nayrt but it's a vicious cycle. The more you avoid people because you think they won't like you or you're wasting their time, the less people will make any effort to talk to you, the more you'll feel justified in thinking nobody wants you around, etc. It gets progressively harder to dig yourself out of that pit by yourself and the longer you stay there, the deeper it will be.

I live in a small town - a few 'local' Lolitas have a little comm, but there's not many of us, and there's not much to do for meets around here except go for coffee or ice-cream, and it gets a bit same-y after a while. I started seeing posts up from the big city comm for my region, and it's like a 4hr drive, but in the end, last summer ILD I went all the way to the city for a big meet up. While I was there, I met this Goth/Gothic Lolita who seemed really cool. I'm the only Gothic Lolita and one of few Goths in my small comm, and most of the Goths here are edgelord dudes 10 years younger than me trying to troll the local Christians (which is most people around where I live.) :/ I was really excited to make friends with her, but then as I got to know her, it turned out she was this special snow-flake, drama-stirring "my life is so hard! UwU" type who liked having stupid arguments over the internet, acting morally superior to everyone (while being really horrible to a lot of people) and now we're definitely not friends any more. She's active in her comm (but not popular, apparently she nearly split her comm a couple years back) and has been telling the big city comm lies about me, so now I don't know if I'll be unwelcome if I go back there. There's one other comm that I know of in my state, and it's even further away, and driving's expensive.

It's not that I don't like the people in my own comm, it's more that we're just limited in options here of stuff to actually do, so I was hoping to once in a while go up to the bigger comm where there's decent museums, a reasonable size art gallery and other interesting stuff, and now I don't feel like I can go back.

On the plus side, I'm really happy to be with someone who isn't embarrassed to be out with me in lolita like my past partners were. I actually used to prefer to be single before just because otherwise I always felt like I was inconveniencing friends by wearing lolita around them but like I was ditching them if I went out alone.

I'm dreading both seeing her in person and maybe making it worse for myself by worrying too much about what she might have said to other people. It's probably not realistic that she'll have turned the rest of the comm against me, but I just don't know how awkward it will be, and I don't know exactly what she's said to the others, or how many people believe her (I know another girl from the city who has told me that the one I fell out with is known for being argumentative, opinionated, rude and for deliberately stirring drama, so I'm sure people there know not to listen to her running her mouth)

I've gained a lot of weight recently due to stress and switching medications. I'm not a fatty-chan but I've gone from semi-skeletor to pretty chunky.

I tried on some of my clothes and got really sad because a lot of stuff that was really loose on me is now tight. I feel like I can't wear anything cute anymore because I'll look like a balloon.

I think taking some friends would probably be the best idea. We can split the gas money! And maybe even stay the night, get more out of the day that way (otherwise 8hrs on the road for like... 3hrs of meet time is a bit much).

Maybe their superiors are nagging them about productivity and they're taking it out on you or something. Since then I've found a wonderful job with very understanding supervisors, though, so hopefully things'll get better for you too.

I wish I'd said this when I spotted Harley Quinn at the mall on April Fools Day.

In my defense, she was fat.

Big meet coming up. Super excited. Only I've spent the past few days being dizzy as fuck. Try the Epley maneuver. Maybe I feel better? Still dizzy. Goddamnit. Eat all the ginger. Dizzy, but stomach seems to like it. Now I have to go to the fucking doctor and hope I don't tip over at the goddamn meet. Great.

I've been abusing amphetamines to lose weight.

I can't look at myself in the mirror anymore without being disgusted.

Lol I was joking but there is a comm that went to KFC ironically. Not sure why, I like casual meetups but fried chicken is so messy
