Yeah, went through the whole thing--hospital, inpatient, therapy for years...

I'm just frustrated bc I've been doing so well maintaining and not restricting, and then I just went through an incredibly stressful few weeks and lost pounds I couldn't afford to lose. Without getting into details, I didn't have access to my regular food and though I tried to eat exactly as I normally do, I obviously didn't. It's annoying bc I didn't even try to restrict and now I feel like I'm being punished since I have to gain a few lbs and I didn't even restrict!

I ordered this vintage hand warmer that's shaped like a poodle a few weeks ago off of depop, and I was super excited when I saw it arrived today. Went to open it and ..

It's the wrong handwarmer.

It's still super cute and I don't mind paying for it, as the seller is holding onto the poodle for me, but it's just insanely dissapointing.

My ugliness is incurable I’m afraid. I feel kind of done going to cons and meets since I feel like my ugliness might be holding me back.

It could be a combination of me having poor social skills combined with years of bullying, but I often get the impression I’m not wanted around.

When I get compliments, it tends to be along the lines of “Nice coord” or “Beautiful photo” never a “You look cute/beautiful.” It’s terrible that I want that attention from strangers but that’s where I’m at.

Even old boyfriends would tell me that I looked like a grandma. Time to become a mountain witch, I guess.

Well shit. I don't think it's memory foam, but should I have it replaced? I actually sleep just fine, I'm just perpetually tired regardless.

>> No.9937766

Yeah that's the thing with me. I'll think I've slept fine but I'll be sore and just have no energy regardless. I just realized I never rotated my mattress for the last two years and there's an imprint of me in it because it's memory foam. I flipped it around and suddenly I had my old energy levels back after a couple nights. It's pretty easy to tell what you have, if it's bouncy it's a spring if it just feels dense and solid when you smack it, it's memory foam. If it's bigger than a twin and you've never rotated it, try sleeping on the other side for a few nights.

It took me a month or so of being constantly exhausted to realize it, I used to be able to get by on 5-6 hours and some caffeine pretty well but it got to the point I was completely destroyed even after 7 hours with caffeine. I flipped it around and I've been much better since. Pay attention to the things you use most often, shoes and mattresses wear out faster than you think and they're both very important to your quality of life. I replace my boots once a year for similar reasons since I put so many miles on them at work.

Just do it. I was in the same boat. As for hair, I just invested in a really good wig-I recommend RockStar wigs for their density honestly. They have gyaru styles too. I have a small closet of brand stuff and I dress up on weekends or free evenings or cons and it's really nice. I look like a totally different person (really the hair) and it's a nice way to get it out.

Depending on where you end up working, you could subtly make changes. I incorporate what I can into my normal clothing choices and I tend to overly accessorize anyways. I work in a place where looks aren't super heavily important which is a blessing, but I totally get the stress. Don't give up your dreams, anon! Be the gyaru you always wanted to be!

I'm so worried it's a clothes moth and that it laid eggs especially because it didn't fly. I don't know why I'm so paranoid, all of my pieces are cotton or polyester and the larvae only eat wool.

My friend was a super normie until she got into cosplay a few years ago, and I really want to support her and her enthusiasm. She's got almost 10K likes on her pages, which is great - except she won't stop telling me about them. She has to tell me every time one of her videos gets a new milestone, every time she shares one of her photos to the dozen or so FB groups I also follow (so I constantly see her updates multiple times a day on my feeds) and has to tell me every time a random person messages her to compliment her on how much better her costume is than theirs. I know she's still new to the cosplay scene and still in the sparkly-eyed hype and enthusiasm of it, and she wouldn't to this stuff maliciously to rub it in my face or anything (she's a really nice person and super friendly to everyone) - but it's kind of getting old, constantly having to congratulate her on her latest set of asspats. The last time I tried talking to her about maybe toning it down a little, she got HUGELY offended and went on a giant sad about how she was trying to share her excitement with me and I'm bringing her down.

Idk maybe I'm being petty or jealous of her thousands of likes or that she's eclipsed me so hard and fast or whatever, but I feel like she's constantly getting praised on a daily basis by everyone, and I'm tired of having to keep saying 'that's great!' every time something happens that I once again have to offer even MORE congratulations for.

They were at first because I used to be really bad at wigs and buy AliExpress cosplays to practice makeup and wigs. A few people in the comm used to roast pictures of me. I posted in here a fewonths ago about one person in particular who walked around with me at a con and asked "real cosplayers" to take pictures with me so he could show me and other people what real cosplay looks like and roast me. He drug me to a series shoot too and roasted me and my poses because I didn't know how to pose and ended up in the center a lot.
I usually would just brush it off, but being the butt of jokes over and over for a few years just gets really old, sometimes you just want to be appreciated for what you do instead of people saying your stitching makes then want to puke when you show your practice strips

I'm not that anon but I'd advise against the Krylon ones at least. The paint doesn't come with primer/sealer so you need a clear topcoat which my friend learned the hard way. He used it and packed the prop a week afterward and it stuck all over his cosplay. But using a clear topcoat (which is also Krylon) fucks up the chrome finish. It causes dark grey patches to appear where sprayed and looks like it melts the metallic pigments or something.

I feel like my wardrobe needs some help but I don't know where to start. Wrong colors? wrong items? wrong themes? not enough socks? not enough blouses? need different main pieces? I have no idea. I suspect it's some combination of all the above.
I started taking wardrobe photos but I quickly got demotivated when my cat started playing with all the items and the photos sucked. I'm thinking about making a spreadsheet now.
I like buying lolita and owning it more than I like wearing it. I've had a really cohesive versatile wardrobe before but now I always feel like something is missing. Tired of the items? too much pressure to wear different coords even though I don't post online or wear them in front of the same people? I don't know :/ I wish I had a lolita therapist.

I'm starting to lose interest in everything that I used to like. I loved playing video games and reading manga but now I can't even play 5 minutes into my favorite game genre without losing interest i even sold some of my manga that ive had for so long. same thing with cosplay, I used to love making props sewing my own costumes and going to conventions just to meet my friends now I haven't been to a convention for about 2 years now and ive started losing some of my friends due to lack of communication And I know it's my fault and it makes me so sad, but i made a new friend this year and she started getting me into Lolita and I've been into it ever since, but now I don't even have the time nor the one to desire to dress myself up in Lolita, is this something I should be worried about or is this just one of the things that happen when you grow up?

If you can find the stock images you can use that instead of your own photos. Pinterest allows private boards, so you can pin them all up there, and then move the pins around when you feel like putting things together. That's if you don't feel like investing time and energy to put stock photos into a closet management app.

You might also try imagine-building your dream wardrobe from scratch. What is the purpose of your wardrobe, and where do you wear it most often? There's nothing wrong with being a collector, but buying stuff (any stuff) releases hormones into your brains, so I'd be wary of that effect. If you just like owning dresses you particularly love then there's nothing wrong with that.

If you didn't already own your current wardrobe, what would you chose to buy so that you can dress up the way you'd like? What are your favorites brands and icons, and how would you incorporate that into your ideal dream wardrobe? Doing this can help you realise where there's a gap between where you currently are and where you'd like to be.

Or if all this sounds like it's way too much work, maybe just take a break from lolita altogether. Stop buying anything and stop looking at your wardrobe and be a normie for a little while. Come back to it when you feel like you need to.

Just some ideas to help you along, hope you get out of your wardrobe slump soon.

It's kind of hard to explain. I'm actually quite into nerdy guys and I love having a partner to share all my interests with, but I feel like in the end the men I dated always ended up being way too consumed/focused on those interests.

Like having no other hobbies/interests outside of nerd culture, not having a clue about any current events, lacking ambition, making cringey references/jokes at inappropriate times, just generally being bad at being adults etc.
I don't want to sound like a snob but I guess my ideal would be someone who's into vidya and shit but also has enough stuff going for them outside of that. Usually nerdy guys I meet are just so invested in that stuff that at this point it seems easier to just find a normie guy who I could talk into playing games with me.

But that is ambition.
Your problem isnt that the guys lack ambition because they surely dont. Being completly invested in one topic is the definition of ambition. Your problem is they lack ambition for you.
What you need is a guy whose interest in life is you, you and a little bit of, wait for it, you but also enough time and energy to be a presentable husband for society to comfort, plot twist, you.

I totally understand that nerds often totally lack the ability to act like grown up human beings but that is as common with normies as it could get. They are just better at hiding it. Behind the scenes? Same.

What you want is what everyone wants. Your Superman without individual personality. The problem is that even you'll find him, you need to be superwoman (or gay superman) to get him.
But in reality you arent superwoman and the chance to find superman is basically not measurable.
What you will find under that criteria is a good amount of psychotic people who essentially live only to please others in order to keep up their low self esteem and hide this little problem very well under layers of "normality".
Good part is that for the first few months this people will keep up with your expectations pretty well.
The drawback is that you have to sustain a relationship with a predatory husk like emotion devourer.

I'll speak to myself - cosplaying and nerdy stuff are the only things i've been able to get social on and suceed in a sense that I have groups that i'm accepted, with people that appreciate me for what I am, not to mention being known by other folks who are into what you like.

Mori is the kind of fashion that doesn't need a dedicated brand or something to pull off, so you're in luck. It isn't like lolita going under, and pretty much having to get secondhand or handmade to keep the same aesthetic. With mori, you can pull it off with some smart thrift store snags.

Thanks for being my lolita therapist, anon, this was pretty helpful.
I am coming back after being normie for awhile so I don't want to leave again. After posting here, I started making a spreadsheet of my wardrobe with colors, themes, and what I paid for everything.
After reading your comment, I decided to make a new tab and copy only items I really really love and add in some dream items. I like spreadsheets more than pinterest, plus I can do it at work and still look like I'm doing something, but maybe I'll make a pinterest board later. Doing this has already given me a lot to reflect on.
I think I've fallen into the same trap as before, buying lots of stuff, and being cheap. I have a much better job than ever before, but I have been jumping on deals (especially skirts) thinking a larger more versatile wardrobe would give me what I wanted. I have enough money I should just buy the awesome items I really want. I've been wanting moitie for awhile, but the price tag still scares me away.
Also, a lot of times I've found I don't really love a dress until I buy it, or buy something I think I love and find I don't like it much.. I'm not really sure how to deal with that except being more willing to resell things quickly even if it's at a loss. One of my favorite JSKs I've bought recently was one I was totally unsure of. Another one I thought would be a slam dunk is very meh. Blouses are even worse. I think only 1/4 of the ones I buy I like and fit correctly.
I am also holding onto a lot of items (mostly blouses..) waiting for a great deal on one that's perfect. I should probably be more willing to pay more and get rid of the ones I don't like as much.
I still have a lot of thinking to do but it's becoming clearer to me. Thanks anon!

I would guess you're just entering early 20's because this is the point where friends I knew had similar problems.
My observations were that the nerdy and geeky crowd try very hard to avoid interpersonal conflict in their social lives.
When things get a little more serious in the relationships, and the adulting is required nobody knows how to react.
They would put off issues in real life or handle them poorly, and then delay facing the interpersonal problems they caused on top of it all.
But that's the thing, these girls would ALWAYS go for a guy that wasn't confrontational with them, ever.
And not by coincidence, that same type of person didn't go face reality the moment they needed to.
Because the games, the anime, the comics, funny cat pictures, and all of it.
They use them as an escape from reality.
I can say with some certainty that the most bitter and painful breakups I had seen my friends go through were caused by this.
It wasn't just one, two, or a few couples either, it was most of them.
So at least you're not alone on that, if it helps any.

Maybe not what you want to hear, but I'm glad that at least things are sorta similar on the other side of the aisle.

I'm turning 30 soon. I just became single again, and I'm going through all my options on Tinder and OKCupid and I just don't know how to feel about...people, I guess. I've always used nerd stuff as a starting point for finding girls to date because I felt like if a girl was into me at my most childish, everything else should be smooth sailing. I've got a decent amount of other stuff I'm interested in - probably more interested in than anime/games/cosplay these days - but it's all relatively normal "adult" stuff.

Looking at the dating landscape now, I almost feel like I missed the boat for someone who "gets me." Nerdy girls seem to be all either married off by now or are so cloistered in nerd culture as escapism from real life that I'd feel like all the responsibility to "adult" would be on my shoulders, but normie girls are just boring to me. I burned through every profile on Tinder and OKCupid in my city in the last week and most of it was just a blur of the same few bar/sport event/dog walk settings.

Neither of those types really bode well for a stable, happy, fulfilling long-term relationship. I want to be a dad some day, and I'd rather not have to be a dad to my biological kid while being the only "adult" in the house. At the same time, my idea of "adulting" is always going to be a little different than that of someone who didn't grow up as a nerdy kid. It feels like a balancing act and I'm running out of time to get it right.

This isn't specifically dating advice, but meeting-people advice.

Consider getting involved with the leadership/organization circle for whatever nerd thing you're most into. Become a staff member for a con, start DMing D&D at a gamestore, something like that. Geeks who are both adults and responsible without resorting to existential escapism usually end up running things. If you breach the line past a person who consumes media to a person who creates experiences, you'll find the people who work on those projects are usually really fun, hard working, and socially adept.

If you're going to a therapist expecting them to tell you exactly what to do or say exactly the right thing to make everything click into place, you're never going to get what you want.

Treat therapy as a chance to talk to someone who can give you input and feedback that other people might be afraid to give you. Sometimes that feedback is going to be uncomfortable or incomplete, but that's by design - *you're* the one who has to learn to live with your experiences, and the therapist's job is to help you get a better perspective and find the right path to walk in that regard.

They're not there to fix you. They're there to help you fix yourself.

Get a new therapist.

Therapy doesn't work if you don't click with your therapist. It's a hard one to bite, but if you've been seeing the same person for a long time and you don't feel like you're communicating with them very well and that they don't understand you... you gotta try someone else.

I've done the therapy thing on and off my whole life, and there is an EXTREME difference in what I was able to get out of the experience with a therapist I clicked with versus the ones that I just didn't feel comfortable or they didn't understand me. Sometimes you have to shop around a bit, and that's ok.

Being so far from the comforts of home is something I've never done and my family worries about me too because if something were to happen, the distance would stop them from coming to the rescue (so to speak).

No shit. But are you aware most of these people have self image issues and those will not be cured by working out? I, for example, have self hatred and depression and only excercise I'm able to do is walking and I try to eat as little as I can currently to loose weigth but no matter how much I shed I will feel fat and gross about myself. What most of us need here is help for mental problems.

>> No.9942300

Good luck anon. It sounds like you have considerable mental fortitude to battle your problem these days. Keep fighting the good fight.

IMO she's being an insensitive bitch. Are you sure she's really your friend, is the relationship reciprocal? I think it is normal to share excitement, but she knows you're in the hobby and don't have this kind of following and you've already tried to express it to her and she made it about herself instead of trying or pretending to understand where you came from.

Probably bait, but she's half your age and she's a kid. I did dumb things into my early 20s, most girls do. The person I was at 16 is only a ghost of the person I became today. As the other anon said she deserves that opportunity to grow up and not have to deal with adult issues/problems.

Also probably bait, but tell her it is not appropriate. Or talk to your friend. She's fucking 13 man, all 13 year olds get stupid crushes on older boys/men. It doesn't make it okay to just kind of let her do things because she's a kid.

>> No.9942305

thats very true. theres a ton of body dismorphia in the fitness community. ripped ex-lanky skeletons or 400lb hamplanets have it equally as much and sometimes there are mental things. But, sometimes when you fix certain aspects in a healthy way (not just starving yourself or crash dieting) it promotes you to fix other things in a healthy way as well. maybe youre a stay at home neet, if you start going to the gym and working out or running, maybe youll slowly recognize regualars, make small talk and also make social gains. Or working out will get you interested in also fixing eating habits or addictions like alcohol, fapping, caffine etc.

I just...don't really feel welcome in my local comm. I've been to a few meets and, while everyone there is cordial, beyond one or two people a lot of them seem standoffish to the point that it feels like I'm an intruder in their space. Introductions go from a brief 'hi' to quickly going to talk to someone else. I've heard nothing but unsolicited compliments for my coords when someone mentions it, so I'm pretty sure it's not an ita thing - in fact, I'm almost certain it isn't, as the unfriendiness extends online. If I post anything, (which isn't too much different from what everyone else posts), it either goes ignored or, more recently, I end up with nonsensical emojis that feel passive aggressive. I haven't had the chance to talk to any of these people beyond trying to interact on nice posts and briefly at meets - I don't really understand if I did something wrong. I just want to meet and get to know people that share a love of lolita fashion, but if this is how it's going to be I don't know if I should even bother trying anymore and just stick to being a lonelita.

>wahh wahh my comm isn't kissing my ass or paying attention to my online posts


>> No.9942430

Tbh it sounds like you are jumping to conclusions. You get compliments, ppl reply to things you post (fb makes it hard to see posts too) and you never said anything about trying to talk to people one on one. Put more effort into getting to know people and don’t assume it’s all negative.

>> No.9942435

Think about it this way: everyone else is also probably struggling with being social and may not be the best at interacting with others. Lots of people come across as stand-offish, but are actually just not very good at social interaction. And leaving emojis as a comment is not necessarily passive aggresive- most likely just non-verbal affirmation.

Are there any members in your comm you specifically want to get to know? If so, reach out to them! Target them specifically during meets to have conversations with, leave comments on their coords, and message/reply to their stories. Make it clear you want to be friends. If they also are interested in being friends with you, they will respond positively! If they're not, well, there's no point in reaching out to people who aren't seeking friendship. Move on and don't take it personally, some people mesh and others don't. Rinse and repeat until you find people you actually enjoy hanging around.

I've been in the same comm for 6 years, but besides my one lolita friend from school, I wasn't close to anyone in my comm until someone took the initiative to reach out to me maybe two years ago. I shocked because I'd never had that happen to me and was surprised that anyone would even bother. Now I try a little harder to reach out to others because I understand that lots of people want to have friends and hang out, but may not necessarily know how. I still don't really, but it takes the effort of at least one person.

>> No.9942439

To be clear, I don't want compliments - they're nice, but I don't go asking for them. (That statement was more a preemptive response to 'you're probably just an ita' than anything else). Any interaction would be nice, including critique, if anyone felt so inclined.

But people don't reply to my posts. At all. And to be clear, the 'trying to talk at meets' thing was one on one, either when they're not doing anything or it's a small group. Like I said to the previous anon, compliments are nice but not that important. It all just feels extremely cliquey without having much interaction - which I'm not expecting anyone to do anything different, it just feels bad when I don't know if I did something or if it's always been like this.

Hanging with FWB who was a fatty fat fat fat who wanted to lose weight, offer to help her cause she is at that critical point where she can be salvaged if she lost weight or if she gained anymore it's a lost cause.
Throw out all the carb packed foods and sodas in her house and drag her to Costco to buy better options.
Later that day she posted on her IG a pizza eating challenge.
I told her she was gross and she blocked me, and her parents sided with me.
I need to start being mean again to help people

>> No.9942443

I do understand that, and I have reached out and become friends with a few of them. It's mainly the interactions at meets from others - say hi, have a short conversation, and then have the person suddenly dart away to talk to someone else. Like, don't get me wrong, I would never say any of these people are bad or wrong for their actions - it's just like a 'oh...okay' feeling.

The online interactions are another thing entirely. Getting ignored it one thing, but the 'crying' emojis when I just ask a question about when an event at a con is/how much room there is? Like...what? And this isn't new - I try asking what they mean and they don't answer. I know there's always going to be strange people, but it still bothersome.

>> No.9942447

All comms are cliquey. They’ve all established friendships with each other well before you arrived so don’t feel bad that they won’t talk to you. It isn’t personal.

>> No.9942453

It sounds like maybe you just don't enjoy small talk? I feel like at meets there's a lot of that kind of thing- you briefly say hi and have a short, shallow conversation. Meets are really more like mingling, it's quite hard to get to know everyone so that's a thing people do to be able to talk to more people. I wouldn't look for super in-depth conversations, save that for your closer friends or smaller meets.

Yes, especially if they're younger, (teens-early twenties crowd). There's a lot of explanations for it, but a lot of the time it boils down to 'tear them down to make themselves feel superior'.

In the past few weeks I feel like I have lost almost all control of my eating or the emotions tied to it. I have become so scared of getting fag again it's all I think all day apart from when I'm thinking what I want to eat. I have never been more than slightly over weigth for my bmi and I lost about 8-10kg of it a year ago. Before that, I was living really inhealthy so it's irrational to fear it now I have things much more under control generally. Few weeks ago I decided to loose the remaining 5+kg to get into my ideal weigth after I had had bad anxiety for a while. I opted to do it by radically cutting my calorie intake and fasting. I love eating, I love it so much so I have been eating once a day so I can eat as much as I feel like with no remorse. It's a lot less than I used to eat now my stomach has settled for the situation. I have probably already lost few kgs and 1-2cm from my waist and all my lolita is getting baggy but I still feel fat and gross. There have been some days I have eaten a bit more, around 1400 calories and I feel so bad and gross. This is constant struggling because I get fatigued and nuseaus easily when not eating but on the other hand all I think is how much I'm able to skip today. I feel like I have crossed a certain point and I just can't stop this anymore. Fortunately, I have a long way to go until I'm underweigth and my bf cooks my daily meals, otherwise I would probably be in a lot worse situation. I just hate how I look, I hate how wobbly I am all over and I feel like this must be done now.

For best results, a mattress should be replaced within 10 years. Generally, foam and latex mattresses tend to last longer than the average lifespan. Latex mattresses are highly superior and beats all the others on the basis of lifespan. On average, latex mattress can last for 15 years if it is properly maintained.

Nayrt but I do know that after so many years a mattress can lose its firmness and support. Also apparently it becomes heavier because it's filled with dead skin cells. I know that I felt sore and achy after 6 years on my mattress and while I was getting enough sleep hours wise I wasn't well rested . Goodluck on your energy hopefully coming back

Same, senpai. I would say that most people are probably concerned about how THEY themselves look, not how you look. It's a mental blockade. I think the cost of being yourself is worth it, rather than hiding who you are or something you love from the world. Same thing goes with talking to other people. It's all in your head, that people wouldn't want to talk to you or want to be friends with you.

It's even a bit on the small side, but Asians are more strict on being (over)thin. I remember them being happy they made a robot of human weight and size, it weighed 45kg. If you go above 50kg, people will call you fat. By Western standards they are still fine up to 55-60kg. (all assuming typical Asian body, and yes, Asians care a lot about the number of kilograms alone).

As comparison. I'm 1,80, weight 65kg, my waist is 70cm and you can see my ribs as I can't hold fat. No way my waist can become smaller than it is without radical or unhealthy things.
