I'm really glad I'm participating in the SS this year. Got in a car accident on Saturday, my first one and breaking six years of nothing going wrong, sigh. I'm okay but my car definetly isn't, I just feel like depressed garbage, but I know my frown will turn to a smile once I get my gift, and even wrapping my gift for her right now is making me a bit happier as I know she'll be ecstatic when she gets it (I'm one of those overspenders haha).

I wanted to post more on insta but I can’t bring myself to go on it because so many people are cute and pretty and I hate being reminded that I’ll never, ever look like them. Cosplayer or jfashion wearer, it doesn’t matter. I have small eyes, a mannish face shape, eye wrinkles when I smile, thin disgusting lips, it’s like I have too much skin on my cheeks so they sag down and pull my resting mouth into a roastie-looking frown, and worst of all I have horrible nasal labial lines and there’s nothing I can do about them.
I’m actually crying as I type this. I got all dressed up in jfash and had my friend take pictures today, but then I’m reminded how old and ugly looking I am and don’t want to post anything.
I can make myself look pretty good with beautycam and stuff but it just isn’t me and it hurts to look at because of it.

Additionally I don’t know if I’ll ever get married or have kids because my standards are higher than what I can get - I may be ugly but I’m not fat and I TRY to make my hair and clothes look good, unlike guys who are this deep into weird hobbies and “4chan humor” (that sounds stupid but idk how else to describe it). And so I honestly fear for my life in 10 years if I fail to get work I like, I don’t have a husband, and I’m too old and ugly for the clothes I like.

Sorry for the retardation. I had to vent.

remember that all of those photos that you compare yourself to are likely retouched. i guarantee most of them are just average/only mildly pretty without all of the minor shoop, filters, and costume makeup. i would know, i knew some instafamous/cosfamous people from highschool who looked hot in photos but waaaaaaaay different irl. they get to curate how they look online.

I honestly think you're exaggerating, or at least focusing too much on your flaws. I can relate though - my face has a masculine shape, to the point where I've been told I transitioned too late (I'm cis). Though the way I see it, ugly but dressed well beats ugly but sloppy by a mile.

I transferred colleges this semester to a small four year this fall. In an effort to make friends and seem more approachable, I stopped wearing anything remotely J-fash for a while. But by the end of the semester, I've realized that doing this made no difference.

I'm wondering if I should start phasing j-fash stuff back into my wardrobe next semester but I'm worried that I'll be completely ostracized because unfortunately my college has a lot of preppy, snooty and extremely judgmental upper-crust kids. I wear very toned down j-fash (larme and otome) but it's still so outside the norm for here. Is it worthwhile to be true to myself and my own style at the risk of being harassed?

It's a complicated feel.

I think it depends on what "harassed" means here.
If you are actually afraid that someone would go after you, insult you, or assault your or something, it's probably better if you just let it be.
I used to live in a really shitty neighborhood where people would definitely be more aggressive towards me when I was wearing Jfash so I stopped doing it. It hurts, but your safety and health should always be your top priorities.

If you don't think that anything that extreme could happen though, I'd go for it.
I wear toned down gothic lolita and on campus I definitely get a lot of stares/judgement/etc., but there have also been quite a few instances where people recognized the fashion or complimented me.
I think larme and otome are probably the best Jfashions you could work with here since both of them can be made quite preppy/combined with mainstream clothing articles, so people will assume that you're just fashionable/into vintage stuff instead of immediately recognizing it as 'kawaii harajuku' stuff.
Good luck anon!

I tell myself this but then I see natural looking videos or photos someone else took and they STILL look good. I know “life’s not fair there will be some pretty people” but it seems that there’s so many and still, average or mildly pretty is better than ugly.

I was never called pretty growing up and so rarely complimented by my parents or grandparents and that probably affects me. Well, a therapist and a friend’s mom have said I looked “exotic” and “different” but that registers to me as “not pretty”.

While me and my SO are both from Europe, we only share English language. I live in a foreign country that I don't speak language of well (or at all), they completely do not know the language here. But we still are going to live together, we already have plans.
Language barrier is not that scary, you can get around almost everywhere in Europe without speaking a word, or only sometimes communicating in English with locals. And if you had her, who is native, you would have it so much easier.
I can't say about job finding problems. I work in technical field, so the international companies are many, and I only use English at work. But as a native I think you could easily find job as a language teacher.
Such things are really tiny obstacles when it comes to true love.

I wish I fit into kid's shoe sizes sometimes. A few years ago I was looking for round-toed low heels and it was impossible to find any in adult sizing but the girl's section had tons of them.

Oh yes I know that feeling. I cringe and tense up when I see most pictures of myself so I can't give you any advice, but consider this:

How many times have you seen someone and felt your heart flutter, or just been taken aback by how beautiful they are? That's happened to me like a handful of times out of the thousands and thousands of people I've seen IRL and online, and never from just a photo. If you've ever had a proper crush you how much further it goes than just appearance. Before you met them you might not have even noticed them. But after, once you've seen their expressions and heard their voice and know how cool they are? That's when they stand out to you, and I think that's how it goes for most people.

You are cuter than you think and I know you'll meet someone!

Correction, a lot of millennials in general hate children. Rightly so. They're parasitic, expensive little fuckers and most of us aren't cut out to be parents. Most humans in general aren't cut out to be parents in all honesty, unfortunately a good chunk of them will never realize that. at least the our generation tends to realize they aren't capable of properly raising another human being in an overpopulated world that's quickly running out of resources.

Also, the reputable taobao brands that aren't shit quality can come out being pricey af.

I decided to take up sewing so I could make some of the cute stuff in mooks like Otome no Sewing.

You will get a nicer reply if you learn how to get someone's attention in their language and then ask if they speak English, because some people don't like average tourists and appreciate the effort.
Knew someone once who saw that exact thing happen - they were in France and asked someone in French if they spoke English, then asked for directions. Then later someone else came to the same person, asked only in English, and got the cold shoulder.

Oh anon, this made me feel so much better. I didn’t think of it before and you really are right, it’s so different being with a person irl than seeing pictures. Things develop and people get more attractive through a specific set of eyes. Now I just need to find guys to hang with lol I work freelance from home and everyone at my internship is female.

Do you have a history of buying things in multiples or shopping at least once, but usually more a week(for fun stuff, not stuff you _need_)
There's lots of checklists around to help you know if you've got a spending problem, so do a google.
Most importantly, if you are saving more than you spend, who cares if you like shopping.

If your parents support you enough to care about seeing your stuff and wanting to show it off to others, they care about you enough to be interested in what you have to say and the hobby itself! Parents aren't always evil - tell them (both) that it's not a hobby you're ready to share with a bunch of people yet, and that you'd prefer to keep it between you and a select few others.

I had this happen to me and afterwards, did the same thing; I stopped showing my parents my stuff, and when we finally sat down and talked about it almost a year later, this is what I found out.

My mom and dad have been yelling at me all the time, calling me a failure and other terrible names. This has been going on for months. I usually hole up in my room all day but get abused anytime I leave to get myself food/use the bathroom/do laundry/etc.

I feel like shit. I'm 23, still well over a year from a useless degree, and every job I get, I get fired within a couple weeks. apparently most jobs require you to not call out sick even once or twice for the first 60-90 days, which is literally never going to happen with me. I've never gone more than one working week without becoming too ill (physically and/or mentally) and needing a day off. And most jobs that aren't heavy physical labor require multi-tasking, and I can't multi-task for shit. I'm also a tiny skinny bitch and physical labor is never something I could do.

I'm a burden to my parents and they don't even like me. I think they only still sometimes tell me they love me out of robotic obligation, because it's the only "positive" thing that comes out of their mouths regarding me, and it's only when they're leaving the house.

I know I'm a loser and a burden and honestly I feel like I've just been wasting time by not hurrying up and becoming an hero.

I'm not who you replied to but you have such a good point and this is probably exactly the thought process of those anons' parents.

customs fees not SS fees. this was quite a while ago when they started cracking down on packages coming into the UK, and i wasn't expecting such a high fee.

¥300 for every item you buy through ZenMarket, they give you ¥300 when you sign up so basically you don't pay fees on your first item, and you can pick the shipping method you prefer and decide how to pack your items.
These are Japonica's fees: http://japonicamarket.com/smart-payment.html They're not exactly cheap but afaik they're one of the few shopping services that can buy from mercari and fril so I'd say it's worth it.

There's not much to argue about things that you personally love, really. If he thinks you or your interests are weird then tough titties, you're not looking for his approval so you shouldn't try so hard to justify yourself to him.
Next time, try turning his questions back to him. A simple "Why are you asking?" will likely be enough to tell you whether he's making fun of you or is actually being stupid, deliberately or otherwise.

Yeah I actually help a lot. I often do their laundry and clean the bathroom (not "my" bathroom, THE bathroom, there's only one cause poverty). I don't cook because I'm not allowed and have almost set the kitchen on fire two separate times because I'm a goddamn idiot who can't multitask at all. I'm also not allowed to help in the yard because I'm mildly allergic to ants and highly allergic to bees/wasps and epi-pens aren't cheap. Plus we live in the ghetto and I don't think they care much about how the yard looks, we've got an old washing machine rusting away on the fucking porch. But I often vacuum the house and stuff like that, help with pets, without being asked because I do enjoy housework to an extent.

I'm autistic, I have OCD, and have severe panic disorder. I know, I know, boo-hoo, but it's so bad that I'm actually not able to drive a vehicle of any sort. I have crashed a golf cart because I got severely frightened by a big cricket flying in my face.

I think most physical symptoms of illness that I feel are completely in my head, or caused by constant stress, or something. I've been this way since I was a child. I never was in school for a full school week, not even once, I'd always miss a day or two a week or at least go home early. I was always at the school nurse's office complaining of various symptoms and if they wouldn't let me call my mom or if my mom wouldn't pick me up I'd usually end up vomiting in front of a bunch of people and then my mom literally had to get me. I remember my parents constantly worrying that I'd be taken away from them by CPS because I always missed so much school, but it was never an issue despite lack of doctors notes because I would literally get perfect scores on the standardized state tests. If one kid gets a perfect score the schools' grade shoots way up so they didn't want to risk losing me, lol.

It could be a number of factors. For example, not all university courses are the same; I took two semesters of beginner Japanese at my first college, transferred to a new school, and had to take the second semester again because my second college's beginner courses were much more intensive. I was maybe a little above average compared to my classmates once I caught up, but there were students there who really dedicated themselves to the language and at least two passed the N1 test in their 3-4 years at university. I minored in it (so ~3-ish years of courses, I said "some" because I didn't major in it and didn't even take all of the language courses that were available, instead opting for one or two cultural ones to fill the minor reqs), joined in study sessions outside of class that sometimes had native speakers participating, and did some limited study of Japanese linguistics in my own time/for other classes, so maybe I just had more exposure than you during my time at school.

>>9722866
I live in a big city, so there are a couple of speaking practice groups that meet weekly here. You could try to find something like that in your area, but if that's not possible, there are a number of sites and apps that can connect you with other people studying. HelloTalk is a neat app, I've only just started using it, but it's got a lot of options for texting or voice recording if you're too shy to immediately start talking to a stranger on the phone. There are tons of free resources out there. Good luck!

Thanks, I slept it over. The lost bag still hurts really badly. It was the first time I got excited over something like that, it would have been my first handbag, and I was a little afraid of spending too much. Now I would spend much more just to get it…
But at least it doesn't press on my depression as much.
I don't know how being underweight makes me feel, I'm okay with it, I think. At least I will be able to fit more things. I believe I'm eating enough.
I will try to find the items I want again. There are actually two bags. One appeared on Mercari only twice, including this time I fucked up, but the other one I have never seen. That's why I'm so sad about it. But maybe I shouldn't worry too much, the bags were released in 2016, people might not have got bored of them yet. I just won't get it for Christmas…

What is so terrible about this?

A bloo bloo bloo, I wore sexy clothes, and got attention from men who want to throw money at me

You know what I have to complain about? Being homeless, because unlike women who can just get a man to take are of them, a man without money or family-support just becomes homeless.

Also I would kill to have female attention, even from ugly fat females.

Loneliness and rejection for life, being an incel for life, is a 1000x worse than being raped. Rape lasts a short-period of time and you get over it, a life-time of being a virgin and alone, the mental pain and damage is far worse.

As a woman ages, her sexual value goes down greatly, and so she would have a greater chance of homelessness. She would still have an advantage, but you're right, old used-up females can be homeless.

>If you don't have a money get a fucking job.
There's (sober) people with full-time jobs who are homeless. A job doesn't mean you get paid enough to not be homeless where I live (America).

Absolutely untrue.

I don't want to be raped by a man.

There's no such thing as a woman raping a man, but if it exists, I would very gladly want them to do it to me.

You women never stop complaining about male attention, never shut-up about muh rape, and I would love to be raped by the opposite sex. Then you complain that I'm privileged as a white man.

Well thanks for admitting this, instead of pretending that any fucking "charity" is going to help me.

I'm just saying

The pain of being incel >>>>>>> The pain of female rape victims (highly over-dramatic and influenced by TV shows and movies)

A lifetime of being alone, never having sex, never having a gilrfriend, never having kids, is easily enough for men to kill themselves or kill other people, or rape, understandably.

It causes a deep-seated hatred of how society works, how unjust society is, misanthropy. No one can help me because I'm a man, if I was a woman, it'd be like living on easy-mode, you stupid cunts live on easy-mode, or you had the opportunity too.

You don't have to do ANYTHING, just simply exist, and there's countless guys who will take care of everything, free housing, free food, free stuff, free sex (not only free, you get paid for it), etc.

I can't tell if you think you're trolling me or not. I would be concerned about you if you're a real person but I don't know that you are and I've been on the internet for most of my adult life so threats of rape etc. pretty much just glance off me at this point. I'm not upset or in pain. Whereas you seem to be highly emotional. Here's you in reverse if you were a woman:

A woman like this obviously doesn't exist, but even if she hypothetically did, and wanted to be in a relationship with me, yeah I'd have no problem with it. I'm sure she would stfu about that stuff, and I wouldn't have any reason to complain anymore so I'd do the same.

This hypothetical non-existent woman sounds preferable to me, because she sounds highly unlikely to cheat compared to a normal woman, a "normal woman" of course having an extremely large ego, very high self-esteem, and strong sense of entitlement.

> You have to go to the charities or organisations in order to get the help. That's what you need to do.
There is no charities or organizations that help incels.

I linked one charity that offers free, non-judgemental therapy for all men. Incels aren't excluded.

If you were abused as a child you could also speak to the Mankind Initiative. If you were a male sexual abuse survivor you could speak to Safeline. There are also tonnes of non-gendered mental health charities like MIND and other services that could help you with what sounds like at least severe depression.

You sound very young. I hope you get the support you need eventually, kiddo.

I'm 22, and none of these fag charities can do anything to help me. If I'm gonna kill myself I don't need their opinion on it.

I'm not depressed, just extremely irate over being an incel in the 21st century western world. I hate modern society, especially how females act.

There is nothing any of these charities can do to help me except give me a free gf, which obviously isn't happening.

Pisses me off that you think these organizations can help, the number of men like me is growing, and I don't think it's a coincidence that so is the number of mass shootings. Society really deserves it.

I'm a fully grown man, easily capable of raping and killing you with my bare hands.

If given the chance, I'd at least rape you, for these patronizing and condescending comments. Calling me a kid, and recommending bullshit when I told you there is no help for my problem.

You really can't see the problem here? No wonder you can't get a girlfriend with such attitude.
My sister married ugly poorfag and helped him to get a job and now they are happy together. You know why? Because he is a really nice guy who treats people well and concider females as human beings. All our family loves him and no one of us does not care about his unfortunate past or his appearence (dude is really fat and ugly), 'cause he is A GOOD PERSON.
Summing: if you can't get a gf the problem is you and only you. Stop being angry fuckface and lower your standarts. I bet that you are about 3/10 and only want 6-8/10 girl. That does not work like that. Grow up and you will be fine.

By the way I have at least 20 IQ points on you, I've never seen a woman that isn't operating at the mental level of a child, to me it's like they literally have mental retardation.

>My sister married ugly poorfag and helped him to get a job
Shit that NEVER happened.

It wouldn't matter if I was the nicest guy in the world, it wouldn't get me a girlfriend, I know for a fact that it would actually hurt my chances. To be honest my problem is lack of money, combined with the area I live, and lack of social connections, that makes it basically impossible unless I started getting a lot of income, that is the only thing preventing me from getting a girlfriend.

>Summing: if you can't get a gf the problem is you and only you.
There is an entire world of complex problems that you don't understand. The problems with today's society is not my fault.

>Stop being angry fuckface and lower your standarts. I bet that you are about 3/10 and only want 6-8/10 girl.
I am jacked and have good facial structure.

I don't give a fuck what a girl looks like, don't care if she's ugly and fat, her pussy still feels the same, everything I care about is non-physical:

- Is she a virgin? What's her past sexual history?
- Does she have STDs?
- Is she an attention whore on social media?
- Does she seem likely to cheat?
- Is she feminist/SJW?

No. Thanks for talking.

I bet you're a doormat irl, you let me threaten you with murder/rape, insult you, and just keep posting suicide hotline websites and feeling sorry for me, that's a good trait in a woman.
