So are you looking more for a girl into jfashion than cosplay?
If so, a lot of cons will have Lolita or general jfashion meets. I feel like those people are a lot less spergy than the general cosplay population, so you'll probably fair better there.

A guy I dated very briefly but grew to have a pretty big crush on and really hoped to turn things into something serious with recently entered into a big R Relationship with another girl. He never really clarified what was going on between us for a couple months until I asked and then said we were friends as if this was something we both knew. I was disappointed but accepted it. He told me he liked me but wasn't ready for a relationship at that moment because his life was "up in the air". We did indeed remain friends but he remained flirty and actually tried to have sex with me a month after that conversation. Now a month later I saw a relationship status update on FB from him with a girl who lives in a totally different country. I get the idea, looking back on things, that perhaps he was trying to find a relationship but decided that he wasn't interested in pursuing that with me - which is totally fine, I would've understood. I just wish he told me that straight out instead of being kinda dishonest like that. I think it's silly to tell me you're not ready for a relationship because your life is a bit hectic and then two months later enter into a relationship with someone who lives somewhere with a 12 hr time difference. Not gonna lie, I am sad and jealous, but I feel disappointed that he couldn't have just said to me the truth, I dunno. I could understand saying that to someone you won't ever see again but we've remained friends in close contact who hang out now and then, I feel like it would've been better to avoid future awkwardness to just say what you mean? Either way I'm just bummed out as fuck. I had hoped we could weeb out together and be cute at cons and stuff but I guess not. Meh.

>> No.9619769

I mean I'm not gonna explain every single detail of what happened but I never said no, we weren't able to fuck because we ended up getting interrupted. I mentioned that just because it's kinda skeevy to me to be trying to have casual sex with a friend and then a month later jump into a relationship - I'm pretty sure that didn't happen overnight so I'm concerned he was trying to fuck me while sweet talking another girl.

Went to a con with 2 friends this weekend, staying over at one of their places. They're dating each other and I think they're a great couple! But uh. The day before the con I kind of realized that I have a Big crush on both of them. Freaked me the fuck out and gave me nausea-inducing anxiety the whole weekend.

Still managed to have a good time, but being near them like that kind of just dragged me further down the rabbit hole. They're so cute, and so sweet. I have only known them for a while (a year or two) so I've a lot to learn about them but honestly that's wonderful. I want to cosplay with them, I want to hear their stories and have them tell me about what they love, I want to give them cheek-kisses.
I'd call that just a very close friendship, but it doesn't feel completely platonic at all. They're both definitely attractive, too.

-Are they even ok with poly? am I?
-Am I just overreacting?
-I'm anxiety sick to the point where eating is...difficult. The anxiety stems from a fear of destroying our friendship. this has happened before, the two OTHER times I had a crush on someone. Maybe bc i'm older and on meds now I can beat it, but I'm not too optomistic.

-They make me really happy.
-If the anxiety sickness keeps up, I'll probably lose weight.

Kill me gulls.

Well, two options, ask them out and get it over with, or if you don't want to and you want to get over those feelings, ask them about their political and religious views. There will probably be something you disagree with them about which will allow you to not like them as much.

You're overreacting. Just try to relax, everything is fine.

It's up to them if they ever wanna take the relationship farther. The most you can do is casually ask their opinion on the concept, don't make it obvious.

Also a lot of people fantasize about poly but also have to deal with being incompatible with it in reality. Think long and hard about if you think you can handle being in a relationship with 2 people. Can you handle jealousy? What if they wanted to bring a 4th person into it? Would you want to risk your friendship in the event it doesn't work out?

it's not weird to want to be cute but it's weird to say you want to be confused for a child. here are some actual bad things about being short/looking young in an attempt to calm your autism:

-attracting literal pedophiles. i have been hit on by weird old men who ask me what grade i'm in. i have had past partners who said creepy shit like "you look just like a little girl. i like it." and things to that effect. starts to make you wonder whether people actually like the real you or if they just want to fuck somebody who is legal and looks young.
-similar to being too tall, when you're too short nothing fucking fits
-nobody takes you seriously ever. this might sound ~kawaii~ but when you're trying to be an adult professional in a male-dominated field it is infuriating. i bring up an issue or make a suggestion that could increase productivity and have had people say "you're so cute when you try to be serious!"
-every guy i've dated has gotten a ton of shit for dating me and have been called cradle-robbers etc. it's gross and embarrassing.

you might romanticize these things but if you've actually experienced them they are such bullshit. i wish i had 4 more inches on me.

Why would someone being attracted to your youthful appearance mean they don't like the 'real you'?

Perhaps you haven't reached the stage of life where you learn this on your own, in which case these words will fall on deaf ears anyway, but I'll still give it a try: there's basically no one who wants you for your personality. Maybe if you marry someone you've known from childhood you'll have that. But otherwise the dating game is a probabilistic mess where books are judged only by their covers, because the contents are deliberately concealed.

Also, from what I'm reading, you don't have a very nice or unique personality for someone to be attracted to in the first place.

Yet whenever I mention it to anyone they're like "Hurr how hard can it be to find white stockings?" Well, pretty fucking difficult apparently. I've actually dared these friends and family members to buy any adult-sized plain white stockings they see and make those my birthday gift for that year. The only pair I ever got was from an uncle who bought them in China, the cheater.
Even the stores with a really wide selection (hot pink? neon green? who even wears those) don't have plain white. When I was a lil babby ita I ended up buying these sexy lingerie thigh-highs because they were literally the only adult-sized plain white legwear I could find in the entire city after looking for two days straight. Nowadays I just buy them online, but it can be a bitch to color-match. I just got a pair in that's unusable because they're a cool almost blueish white instead of the warmer off-white they appeared to be in the pictures. At least they weren't $30.

Small and cute is a state of mind. You must inhabit the psyche of a smaller girl. Pretend you can't reach things that you really can, develop a pose which involves crouching or otherwise lowering yourself, etc.

There are costume options as well. Horizontal stripes make you look shorter, and striped stockings are always cute. Also a high-end option is that you can potentially wear a skirt that covers your legs and then use some kind of wheeled device for crouched locomotion.

I keep obsessing over my appearance because of lolita. I think I look pretty okay in the mirror most of the time, even pretty with the right makeup and hair on, but I've read a bunch of articles online where it says that you don't look as good as you think (especially when you look in the mirror) and now I'm paranoid. They say that it's because your image is flipped, but I used a hand mirror to see myself from the 'right side' and I don't actually look that different...? Yeah my face looks a little lopsided but it's mostly the same? Yet whenever I take a picture my facial features look oversized and my mouth looks too thin/small, but a lot of people say you actually look more like your camera pic than the mirror image... And I'm sorry but I'm having a hard time believing it, surely at least the size of my proportions in the mirror would be correct so how can the camera be a better measure? Also, isn't there stuff like lens distortion etc...
The reason why I can't stop thinking about it is because I'm scared of being too ugly for cute clothes. I've seen some people say stuff like 'how can she be confident with that face' to other girls before, or 'she shouldn't wear lolita with that face' and I'm afraid that I'm one of those girls... I look nice to myself in the mirror (even when the image is flipped) but am scared that I'm just seeing what I want to see and not what's really there/that my eyes are fooling me or something. I've asked some people I'm very close to if that's really how I look (even in random mirrors I haven't seen/used before) and they said yes, but I don't know if they're just saying it to make me feel better...

Idk I just want to know if that's actually what I look like so I know which style would suit me or if I'd suit lolita at all. I don't want to shoehorn myself into any style if I'm doomed to look like shit in it. I know it sounds silly but nobody seems to know for sure and I keep getting conflicting information.

>> No.9621937

The distortion you're talking about is a product of the human ego, not the camera.

Mirrors are usually the most reliable, yes. Your two-mirror trick is actually a fairly accurate assessment, but do remember that lighting and angles also matter here (a lot).

People tend to focus on flaws in their own face that other people don't notice, because you spend more time staring at your own face than most other peoples' faces.

EG I think I have a huge jew nose, I have a bump on my nose, I have awful huge pores on my face, I think my foundation is always flaky and cakey, but multiple people have told me over and over than none of those things are true. I don't believe them, because I still see these flaws, but i can at least tell myself, "nobody else notices them I guess."

As for "suiting" a certain style, I really firmly believe that most of "suiting" a style has to do with how you do your hair and makeup, I don't think a certain face is ever really limited to a certain style. Just buy clothes that call to you and make you happy.

I think the problem there is that they shapes don't lend themselves to each other very well. You could do a 60s hairstyle with one of the skater dresses but it won't feel like a 60s outfit at all - you'll just look unbalanced and a little weird.

Honestly your best bet is probably plain colored 60s style dresses with the nerd leggings, and just use accessories in matching colors, or from the same series, to bring them together. I don't really think there's a way of making skater dresses look 60s at all.

Pedos can't control who they like anymore than you can. If anything, they're channeling it healthily. Learn to accept your partner more, if they aren't hurting anyone then good on them. You have fualts you can't control, so do they, but it they say something you find creepy you're more than in you're right to ask then to stop. Just try to at least be understanding. Also being attracted to someone for youthful looks doesn't automatically make someone a literal pedophile either. Being a child comes from looks as well as cognitive functioning. Unless you also have the mannerisms of a little girl, many of your partners may not have been pedophiles but just like young looking girls; and yes there is a difference. A 14 year old could be an early bloomer with a full rack and curved body, but will obviously act like a 14 year old and not an adult.

Just food for thought. You seem like you're being too judgemental over your partners due to your own insecurities of thinking you have an unlikable personality, leading you to project a terrible image in them that may not exactly be there.

I don't know why I feel so attached to it even though I want to try different styles.

I even get recognised around campus as that girl with the super long hair so without it I don't know if I'd feel like "me".

Long bob?

>> No.9623151

I've had a lob several years ago (grew out what I had now from one) and it's pretty cute with my hair type, but desu it was still a lot of upkeep due to the thickness, and the versatility was lower than what I have now for similar upkeep (I couldn't do any of the braided styles I rely on a lot now at that length, it was long enough to stick in a ponytail but still looked bad in one). I think I'd go for a bob over a lob as it has similar styling options but lower upkeep, but desu I just want to go for genuinely, like, boy-short hair.

If I was in any other fashion I'd just go for it, but three years is a heck of a long time in lolita, which makes me so uncertain...who knows if I'll even be a lolita any more three or four years from now? I know for definite that I'll have left university before it grows back, so I probably won't be able to wear lolita on a regular basis anyway, whereas having loliable natural hair is really important to me right now as I can actually wear lolita kind of daily. Maybe I should wait until I graduate to get the big chop, since at that point I'll probably only be wearing lolita to meets and it won't be as much of a burden to wear wigs every time.

Homosexuality is attraction to a fully developed, seemingly healthy bodied (fertile) person who has a psychological age close to yours.

I'm sorry to say that you're either very dumb or a pedo apologist yourself if you can't see how that would be considered non-pathological whereas an attraction to someone who is 1. not yet capable of understanding the world in any meaningful way 2. has a body that is not fertile, would. You have no biological nor psychological basis to feel sexual attraction to kids, and you can never put this "sexuality" into practice - it's clearly a kind of mental illness and is in no way comparable to homosexuality

She never "sympathized with nazis" and she made posts afterwards to clarify that she believes (rightly so) protests belong on weekends, not on the job, and the outrage over the "autistic" comments is just laughable. The social justice mindset is so cancerous and pervasive in this community. It's not just liberalism, it's identity politics, virtue signaling, and witch hunting at its worst. It just sucks that she was fired for not being a regressive liberal.

Them being fully developed of the same sex is no different than someone attracted to the same sex and underdeveloped. You don't FIX attraction.

Homosexuality is attraction to the same sex. It doesn't state developed or non-developed dumbass. You can be a homosexual pedo.

There is no difference between homosexuality and pedophilia besides the fact one isn't considered morally wrong. And you CAN put it in to practice depending on the country.

>Attraction to a body that isn't fertile
Okay, homosexuality has nothing to do with fertility though? You're going against basic human function by fucking your own sex.

People have personal views. Said views are separate from work life. Firing someone for their personal views that have absolutely zero bearing on their job is thought crime territory. You can disagree with someone without wishing harm on them. It isn't justice for someone to be canned for their views, regardless of how much you disagree with then.

Why don't we wind this back a little from the scarecrow argument this dropped into.

The original discussion came from whether or not it was bad for "literal pedos" (incorrect terminology btw, it should be hebephile) to be attracted to an adult woman with a childlike frame and features.

I say hebephile here because barring genetic defects, it is extremely unlikely Anon looks like a literal child under the age of 10. Pedophelia is attraction to PREPUBECENT children whereas Hebephelia is attraction to early pubevent children. For distinction purposes, I'll be referring to them as "young adults" which is common terminology for this age group.

Now, young adults are actually fertile and of breeding age, but obviously have a undeveloped understanding of how the world fully works or where they belong in the world. Because of their need to depend on adults still, it is easy for them to form bonds with supportive adult figures. This creates the scenario in which young adults can easily be manipulated by full adults to "give consent" given the right circumstances.

It's morally wrong from the standpoint of taking advantage of a developing person's psychology. Young adults are old enough to know what they want, old enough to make decisions for their selves, and old enough to have an understanding of sex and the risks involved (assuming they had proper sexual education, which they should by this age). However, it is easy to skew their mindset, and often the gap in experience grants the adult an upper hand.

Now, with that in mind; an adult who is attracted to the features of young adults (Petit frame, small "middle of budding" look to sex features such as breasts, buttocks, etc.) but understands that actual young adults should be off limits and instead only goes for grown adults who have these physical features isn't doing any harm to anyone. For that matter, it doesn't inherently mean that they "only like you because of how liddle gurl you look." It simply means they have a very real physical preference that they can't control, just like how you can't control what physical features you find attractive in those you seek, and they go for those features. They may be hebephiles but they aren't hurting anyone, they're in consenting adults relationships, and they're not in control of who they like. They ARE however in control of who they date, and if they're making the choice to not date actual young adults then there shouldn't be an issue. Who is being hurt in this scenario?

The original post was about Anon having self esteem issues and lacking too much confidence in her own personality to assume anyone could possibly love her for anything other than her appearance as a young adult. Rather than Anon channeling her insecurities on her partners being at fault, it's more helpful to tell her not to discriminately hate anyone who may approach her, understand that dating is majorly about physical attraction regardless of what romance novels tell you, and that if they do something she finds uncomfortable it's important to calmly and maturely communicate this instead of building internal angst against them.

Somewhere along the line this conversation turned into some wild scapegoat where the original context was lost. at a certain point it becomes hate for the sense of hate. They're still human and can't control what they're attracted to, but they have full control over who they pursue.

I disagree with their views and don't wish harm on them. However I do not want any more of my dollars going to such a person. I let AP know that I won't be patronizing their US store any more. AP decides that these losses aren't worth having such a person on their team. This is called a logical business practice. It literally happens all the fucking time. I chose where my dollars go, you mad?

your honest attempt made me convinced that you can't style skater dresses in a tasteful way. I'll probably just wear gogo dresses with some nerd flair and skater dresses on my off days
