I'm in a Texas comm. It's the south, so of course gigantic people are everywhere. There's an obese lolita in my comm who often brings up her size and weight when talking about dress sizing, etc., and I freeze whenever she does. Sometimes it's a simpler, "Oh, I could never fit into that! I wish I could, though..." Other times she uncomfortably overshares, "My sister says I'm too fat to look good in this" while looking to us to comfort her for it. But then it's a more surprising comment like, "I can't go to mini meets at restaurants... The booths are too small."

This girl can't fit into a restaurant booth -- A BOOTH!! She's MASSIVE. And she's obviously got some mental issues, what with her blaming the booths for being too small rather than her being too large. I finished dropping 1/4 of my bodyweight recently, and I've realized how really fucking easy it is to lose weight. It's called self control! Discipline! Things she's apparently never heard of! I'm getting to the point of holding back the primal urge to yell, "We get it! You're FAT! So what are you gonna FUCKIN' DO ABOUT IT????"

Her attitude makes me not want to accommodate her. I want to go walking through a park and enjoy nature while she's bumbling behind us, sweating like a pig and gasping for air after walking 50 feet. I want to sit at restaurant booths where we're out of the walkways and we have more privacy (so we won't be gawked at so much). She can sit pull up a couple chairs to sit on at the end of the table and block the walkway if she wants. I want to wear the pretty dresses I've earned through discipline while she will only be able to wear replicas and fish for pity about it.

How do I react tactfully to her comments? I can't lie and glaze over it by saying, "Oh, you're beautiful just the way you are!" I don't want to lie and give a backhanded compliment like, "At least you have a cute face." If I dodge the subject, it's blatantly obvious and comes off as rude. Most of the other girls go quiet.

" is there anything you can do about it?"

>> No.9695853

kick her out of the comm honestly, like talk to your other members about it, basically complain that she is making this a drag and that you may even consider leaving yourself if nothing is done about it. its not because she fat, its because she is annoying and holding your party down from having a good time because the meeting is just a pity part to revolve around her gravitation pull at this point. Fat people are fine if they can stop talking about themselves and are actually showing an effort to better themselves, its great actually when a friend can accomplish goals like that.

>> No.9695855

There's a girl like this in my comm, I usually just keep my mouth shut when it comes up. When we have meets that have a lot of walking, she is always complaining even when it's a relatively short walk and no one else is bothered by it. It is amazing how little self-awareness obese people can have when it come to how much of an inconvenience their weight is causing them. They never want to stop being fat however.

This is the worst. No longer is their obesity affecting their own pursuit of happiness, now they are a cancer for any friend or social life they attempt to make and will do nothing but be a depressed slob obsessed with having your pity. It the absolute worst kind of friend to ever have. I had one who I tried to help lose weight, I suggested something simple, like walking her dog who never leaves the house. Her fucking DOG was becoming depressed and obesed, just like she was. I tried to use this as an example her weight isn't merely affecting herself. She couldn't ever walk her own dog. It was suffering because she couldn't be damned to walk it around the block. I ended up being paid to walk it by myself eventually.

This happened to me a while back at a con earlier this year
>brother sets me up with nerdy girl who wants to go to cons too
>she wants to cosplay and match me
>make my cosplay and make one to match her
>she gets tons of pics taken of her, I occasionally get asked to be in them too
the real kicker was
>girls keep coming up to her and telling her she's so talented and asking how she made this or that
>they even occasionally asked how she made my cosplay
Ended up getting in a fight with her because she wouldn't correct them about it, but to be honest I'm more mad that people in the cosplay community think guys are useless and incapable of making things. They honestly thought I was just a big idiot who had his gf make him a cosplay, like I wasn't some "real cosplayer" or "real nerd". This hobby and community is just so anti-male that it pisses me off, especially here.

For reference I'm ausfag, so it just seems really kind of magical and rare that she chanced upon baby while she was there. My boyfriends family don't know anything about lolita, since I'm not a lifestyler and I rarely wear it, but this made me really fuzzy and excited. Not only does his mother already think it's cute, but if I ever happen to be in a situation where they see me in lolita I won't feel scared or ridiculous.

I can actually empathize with this and it's probably best to drop someone who can't give you credit for the things you do. Claiming you made something that was made for you or bought/commissioned in cosplay is a big no-no. Doing when the person who made it is standing right there? Holy crap!

But anyways, we have a cosplay group where everyone has their things they're better at and we tend to all get together to make group cosplays. No one believes that the men in our groups are the ones that sew or apply makeup. They always assume we make the foam and leather props, but obviously the women are responsible for sewing, wig styling and makeup. OK so our wig stylist is female, but the others not so much.

legit question to the girls here, if a girl tells people they're not looking for a relationship right now in casual conversation about their life (not just towards me, literally our entire mutual friend group), do i still give it a shot or do i just save my breath.

i won't then. it's only confusing because we were both discussing a few days ago what we WANT out of a relationship and we agreed on every point, and she made some weird passive like "i guess like i just don't want a dumb relationship" or some shit but that was the only time she said it

i guess im projecting my personal experience of not wanting a relationship but being open to still trying it if i think the person is cool

i haven't felt like this in a while it's hard to cope with.


she's part of a group i joined in college and we're going to a con together this weekend. i just didn't add that in because i figured it would be assumed that it's related to this shit.

The reason a lot of people assume guys leave the cosplay making to their gfs is because a lot of guys genuinely do. It's not fair on you, but that's the reality of it.

Maybe you need to pick a character to cosplay that'll match your appearance? Not to say that you can't cosplay any character you want, but if you pick one that works with what you look like so you can pull it off easily, people will be impressed and you might feel more comfortable.

Keep being her friend. Literally 100% of my good relationships have been from friendships. If you like this girl, respect that she's not looking for a relationship right now and don't be flirty or make moves or single her out/be specifically nice to her for the sake of orchestrating things-but just treat her like a friend. Things do genuinely grow from friendships I think.

Not a lot of black characters in anime, but there are still a few iconic ones or timely memes you can jump on. Alternatively, just get super fucking buff and do buff pokemon gijinka-6 packs with a Diglet cardboard cut out will make you the most popular and fun guy at the con I promise.

In truth, figure out what you want out of con. If it's making friends, see if there's local anime events/comic shops/etc and communities you can pre-join (and meet over weeks and weeks so they learn you aren't an intimidating and scary dude) and then go to conventions with them. If it's cosplay, learn more about crafting, about taking care of your body, etc. It can take a con in a mask or Iron Man suit or w/e to get people coming up to you asking for photos. My friend who has burn scars took a long time to get into cosplay to begin with since people rarely talk to him and just stare-did a Blue Spirit (ATLA) cosplay and had a fucking blast. Through that, he made more cosplay friends and feels more comfortable doing non-mask cosplays now. Good luck, don't give up, the scene is fun and there's a niche for all of us!

Maybe if you watched Ore Monogatari it would motivate you to live more happily and freely. take risks, just like you did in going to the con. but don't expect everything to magically work for you if you don't open yourself to it and put in the effort to make it fun.

How weird would it be to gift a girl that I'm not quite friends with, that likes manga, a volume of a manga for christmas?
We talk to each other in class frequently and on the way home from it (also occasionally exchange whatsapp messages about class related stuff) and whe've recently warmed up to each other so that interaction is a lot more natural and it's gotten a lot easier to approach each other recently without "a good reason" in mind.
I feel like we could be good friends if both of us weren't so horrible a the whole "making friends" thing.

Not really, just tell her it's a gift. If you're really not sure then wrap it nicely, and ask her to open it when you give it to her so she can see what it is right away.

>> No.9696618

Thanks gulls, you've all been amazingly helpful.

The awful thing is that there's at least 1 more girl I walk home with and am on the train with afterwards. But I'm willing to risk it anyway.
Think maybe I'll go with the gift bag option and "A little gift. It's a manga that I think you might like. Merry Christmas."

The thing is, it's been an awkward "dancing around eacht other" (glances from her in the first semester, looking away when I looked back, awkward looking away when we met in the corridor, sat next to me outside of the regular seating order, but when I tried to talk to her it got awkward real fast, some nice talks during labs when we had lab topics to talk about) for like 3 semesters now.
Now in the third semester, her little group (basically just 1 other girl) got integraded in out little group and we had more opportunity to talk to each other. After I had helped her with something she had asked me about, she seems to have lost a lof of reservation she had toward me (sat next to me and then leaned in real close to tell me something, smiled and laught more than before, seek out my company when I was standing somewhere).
Maybe WE ARE friends already and I just have a skewed, narrow definition (for me that would be somebody I could simply contact because I wanted to chat and talk about other things that just university and such, do things together etc.).
Either way, I feel that if neither of us doesn't give this thing a little push, we're going to be stuck in this painful libo forever.

I understand, I hate being in other peoples debt as well and the thought at having to reciprocate gifts drives me insane.

I'm trying, I just really want that friendship to work out.

I'll probably go with something similar, as I've written above. Thanks.

afaik most of the time you can successfully prevent weight gain on medications by being strict(er) with your diet. Just watch what you eat, maybe keep track on MFP or something to be sure.

At least that has helped me, and one of the symptoms of the problem I am being treated for is weight gain and a really hard time losing weight in general.

You 100% won't gain weight if you're truly eating so little because 700 is way under your TDEE. You'll only gain weight if you start eating more than you burn. The reason medications make people gain weight is because they typically increase appetite but cause some kind of fatigue. You eat more but move less. Boom. Weight gain.

Just monitor your intake and you'll be just fine.

To be honest you may also be screwing your metabolism a bit eating so little, you should probably go more for 1000cal and exercise... but >>9697217 is right, antipsychotics mainly tend to make you sleepier/more tired and hungrier, weight gain isn't universal (otherwise we'd magically fix all anorexia with antipsychotics; they are used to try and help sufferers establish appetite but by no means cure it) and data is also confounded by getting to the point of needing an antipsychotic; e.g. If you're so loopy you're a danger to yourself and need compulsory treatment, then you're likely going to be stuck in a reasonably small space in a mental health ward, eating hospital-issue food v.s. whatever you were up to before...

Some medications make people gain weight because they cause the body to retain more water, many people confuse this with actual fat-weight gain.

>> No.9697454

Your post was made with good intentions but that's not true at all in regards to antipsychotics. They do increase appetite but they also cause water retention and in some cases, massively slow down the metabolism. This is a common issue with these kinds of meds.

Agree with this. I have plenty of fat friends, fat family members, but if people start having a pity party or start acting as if I should somehow lose the weight for them, or they'd lose the weight if *I* just tried harder for them or some shit, I ghost them. That's why I don't even have acquaintances who whine to me about how they wish they could fit my clothes or some shit. I have a friend from elementary school who's always been fat and who's a plus sized model, and she's never whined about thin privilege or skinny bitches this or that, none of the fatties I know are asshat tumblrinas. People who are unhappy with themselves are always going to be unpleasant company. Just sigh dramatically in a here-we-go-again way and change the topic whenever mcfattums starts the pity party.

>tfw really want to wear thigh highs instead of tights for once in casual outfits but feel like I'd look like a slut

A couple years ago when I lived with my parents I tried thigh highs in an outfit but my mom said I looked like a slutty schoolgirl and I've been too embarrassed to wear them since. When I see pictures of other girls wearing them I just think they look really cute and not provocative at all but I can't view myself in the same way. I dunno why I'm so self-conscious about this one thing in particular because I can wear lolita out and not give a shit what people think about me.

>MFW they only give me 3 business days to pick up my package before saying they'll send it back to Japan, and this was only their first attempt to deliver it

What the fuck? Their site says that they will hold a package for FIFTEEN DAYS or after 3 attempts. This is the first attempt and not even a full week. Why are they threatening to send it back? I'm fucking lucky that I work an off schedule tomorrow and actually have a chance to go to the post office in person to pick it up otherwise I'd be fucked extremely. This is a VERY rare coincidence that my schedule lines up with the strict timing of this package.

But WHY are they only giving me 4 days to work with in the first place? I'm hoping that they don't mean I need to pick it up BEFORE the 20th. I swear, if I go to the post office tomorrow and get some "Oh, we already sent it to the sorting facility to be sent back" bullshit...

How are they even able to say they'll hold it 15 days and not keep their word? Am I able to call the Postal Inspectors on them for doing this?

On another note, I ALWAYS have to go to this post office because they never redeliver my packages even when I schedule redelivery. On top of that, I have a post office that's about a 5 minute walk from my house but the area code division of my house is weird and all of my packages get sent to the post office that's 20 minutes away. It's annoying as fuck.

I've been wanting to get a solid Mary Magdalene JSK for the longest time. I finally found a cute one on Maiden Clothing for really cheap. Couldn't find it on Lolibrary so I couldn't quite check the measurements so I just ordered it and hoped for the best. Comes in the mail, there's just... no way. It's way too small. It fits ok in the waist, not perfect but manageable, but the bust is a good 3"-4" too small. I'm trying to decide if I should bother trying to get it tailored and sink a lot of money into tanking the resale value and potentially ruining it or just cut my losses and sell it.

are you a newfag or something? you don't even need to know their measurements to know they won't fit anyone who isn't a tiny asian person with a waist larger than like, 72cm.

I accidentally became best friends with someone who has a pattern of becoming super infatuated with female friends, having really intense friendships, then dropping the person the second someone else catches their attention. I have plenty of casual friends, but I haven’t managed to make any close friends in the past few years, despite trying to reach out to people. Somehow she manages to form close friendships with basically everyone she meets, including the casual friends that I failed to get closer to.

At this point it’s been years of going through this cycle and I am really hurt by everything, but I am also lonely, pathetic garbage, so every time she comes back around, I give in, even though I know I’m just going to feel like absolute shit when she drops me again.

I don’t know how to cope with or handle this anymore. She is closely involved with cosplay and lolita friends, so dropping her entirely would just create way more of a headache. I suck at creating boundaries and not getting my hopes up when she inevitably is my “friend” again. I just want to have one close friend to hang out and wear lolita and cosplay with but at this point I feel like that is never going to happen.

>> No.9699543

I had a friend like that semi-recently. I had known her for years and she'd always drop me then come back when the new people weren't new anymore. Eventually she will break your heart(in a friend way) if you keep being invested in her. I no longer talk to my "friend" but that more coz she got pissed when I started treating her like she treated me.

It takes a while for most people to find their people. It can be a bit lonely looking for them, but if you stop looking you never will find them.
When this "friend" bounces back into your life, like be nice, but just try not to care that much while she's still around, and enjoy it while it lasts. That will also help you prepare mentally for when she drops you again.

>> No.9699555

Maiden do actually measure their stuff (flat, in cm) - did you not think to look at the website you were ordering from? Anyway, it's gonna look pretty shit altering it larger as they're either gonna have to take fabric from somewhere else in the dress, or use some different fabric.

I used to have a friend like that. She was cute, until I noticed over the years she was becoming a doppelgänger of me, but a fatter and uglier version. That alongside the months on and off, she wasn't worth my time. I dropped her. Now she tells mutuals how she wishes she can go back to the way things were, it was a choice I made. She has depression and bipolar issues and I had to constantly go through her projections and now that I think about it, it was a lot that I dealt with. Sometimes you got to think about these things.

All this talk of friends is making me have some old feels. My absolute best friend who was into all the same stuff as me (games, anime, she even started cosplaying with me for a little bit) ended up having a messy breakup with her bf in our friend group, the started going clubbing a lot and made lots of new 'friends' there. She eventually was pretty much doing drugs all the time and when she spoke to me I felt like I barely knew her anymore.
The last time we spent time together as friends she could barely remember what she'd just said because her memory was so fucked from all the shit she'd been taking. I had to hold back from crying.

As much as could be done. My mum is a nurse and I even offered to help her with seeing a counseller/psych, going to drug help/get clean programs, offered as much support as I could.

At the end of the day she had a lot of mental health issues from a fucked up childhood and was wildly insecure- You can only help someone so much. I couldn't force her to stop or seek help, only offer my support. She always said she would but then she'd just keep going out and occasionally ODing. It really broke my heart but I struggle with depression/anxiety myself and helping her isn't a burden I could take alone. We sort of just... drifted apart because her whole world became clubbing. It sounds horrible but sometimes I feel like she's died, in a sense. She's not at all the person she once was.

I always wonder if there was a turning point where I could have done something more, or just like... a point in time where I could go back and fix it.

Awww thanks gull, I really needed that.

It was a basic job in retail, everyone applying was around the same age and also seemed to have the same experience so I'm genuinely at a loss here. I made sure to be as sociable as possible during the group exercises, taking everyone's input into account and asking questions. Made people laugh a few times, didn't stumble once.

The only thing I could think of is that a few of the girls did dress very fashionably with all instagram makeup whereas I made sure to dress in suitable interview clothes, albeit with my own personal flair since I wasn't sure how far I could go. Was going to go with a brighter lipstick but instead went with a nude. Was going to go with boots but instead went with flats.

Look what I'm going for is that the dreams themselves are not the problem but rather are a symptom of something else. I suspect she's grown bored of being with the same guy for god knows how long. Probably because he's the only guy in her life so she didn't fall in love with him as much as she settled for him. And I don't think that's fair for the guy. That's my two cents at least.

If they were always very consistent about signing in every day, and then one day they just say "I'm gonna take a walk" and aren't heard from again after that, that would be a very good argument for a missing person's investigation.

>missing person's investigation
lmao. One of the last gulls I talked to over emails was consistent in their replies until they ghosted me one day and never replied back. Should I call the police and get an investigation underway too? A more reasonable thing to do would be to actually go to where they live or check in with their friends or family, which I assume that anon hasn't done because they simply don't know them that well/has physically never met them before because they're discord buddies. People blow eachother off or cut contact all the time, especially online.

As someone who went there, parties and crazy stuff are clearly not worth dropping a loved one. On the moment it's incredible, but it's so quick, and so much efforts for overall not much, I'd say that if you are in a pleasant and stable relationship you should keep it. Now you have to be honest with yourself, and if you want to build strong memories like that, go ahead. Not gonna lie, being in some kinky stuff like group sex or parties is a once in a lifetime experience, but definitely not a must-have, maybe medias and movies gave you this impression. It's also not good for everyone.
A friend of mine stayed with her bf for like 5 years when they started to meet at 16, but suddenly decided that she wanted to have fun, dropped him, and started sleeping around the night after. It may sound cruel but at least she was honest and did what she though was good for her. The poor sod was a wreck though, but what can I say.

This, a long as porn isn't replacing the person you're living with, what's the issue? If a couple have way different libido it may helps them staying happy and satisfied.

It's actually more complicated and fascinating. The US gives you a perpetual right to your plot and your descendents a perpetual easement to visit it, but that's very different from the laws in Europe.

making friends is hard so dont feel bad
having been someone on the other side of the fence with a boyfriend that always thought I loved my bestie more than him talk to him/her and try trusting them if they say they love you more! it hurt me feeling like my love wasnt appreciated but I knew it wasnt his fault. he found old fb posts with me being flirty with my besty and felt he couldnt compete.
how old are you? its normal for long term relationships to have dips where you think of other people. it doesnt mean youre bored of your partner in every case at all. thats like saying intrusive thoughts mean you want to subconsciously jump off every bridge you see

I don't want to hurt her though, or put her in a position where she has to pretend I am her best friend.

>> No.9700628

It will hurt her more in the long run if you let something that's clearly upsetting you this month fester without talking to her about it.
Also, it could be that some people put friends and partners in different categories. Like, they think someone can't be a friend because they're already their partner and therefore they're something more than a friend.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this. But, I was linked to this thread by someone who still lurks this board. I do speak to a few ladies from the contest days and have lost contact with the majority of them.

I wanted to just say hi and say that I honestly missed those contests a lot. As some of you know I did struggle with my health and it was life threatening for some time, to the point that my husband had to retire to take care of me. But, I don't want to derail this thread too much! I just wanted to say that I missed you ladies a lot.

Nah, I feel you. I've even met her a few times and know people who work with her. She's a good person I think and I appreciate her passion and I'm happy for her but I think all her shit is dumb. Love her boyfriend's style though.
