It's such a good feel. I don't think she will become a lolita, but her open mind for it just reassures what a precious friend to me. She is willing to try, and "gets it" enough to see why I'm so crazy in this odd alternative fashion style.

I mean, at least they're not threatening you for rejecting them.

Don't do it, Anon. A friend of mine did this, and she unintentionally fell I to a dark magic ritual that slowly made her friend swap bodies with her. Soon, "her" wardrobe became her friend's, and there was no way for her to prove that they had switched places. Eventually, she began questioning her own sanity and believed that she was always her friend.

I know this story because....

Bought a pair of socks off LM. When I took them out, they looked great/no issues. Only a few months later when I was actually coording them, I noticed they were two of the same sock, so the border wouldn't show on one side. Contacted the seller hoping she might be able to work it out, she said she'd sold the same pair to her friend and was certain she had the opposite sock. Since then, it's been radio silence. Asked for updates, she told me to message her friend directly. Message her friend directly, read but no answer.

It was my mistake in the first place for not thoroughly checking them over but also sucks that the seller isn't really doing much and her friend won't answer. Doesn't she also want to swap socks ??

I'm going to die soon and I don't know what to do with all my stuff. I have a huge wardrobe, 3 closets full of lolita clothing, but I'm a lonelita and have no one to pass it onto. My mom still has to deal with the aftermath of my father's death that happened recently... I don't want to burden her with this, she won't be able to handle it. At the same time I don't have the energy anymore to even leave the house, let alone get out of bed most of the time. So I can't even motivate myself to sell just one piece of it.

Hi anon.

I feel you. I'm sorry the circumstances surrounding your imminent passing are making your final months challenging. I too lost a parent long ago and suffer from an illness that is likely to see me pass sooner rather than later, though it's not yet set in stone.

You aren't the first to be in this situation, there have been several discussions I can recall since 2013.

The recommendation has often been to write a diary with the dress names, cuts and colourways, the price you paid, the price it retailed for and the average secondhand price. It will make it easier for whoever is left to sell or otherwise distribute them.

>> No.10099512

>>10099484
Anon, I'm so sorry you're going through this.

I understand that you don't want to stress your mom out, but I'm sure if you and she are at all close she would consider every moment with you precious. Would you be interested in making cleaning out your closet with her a bonding moment? You could ask her to help photograph, list, and ship the dresses out, and tell her all about lolita fashion and what made you choose those prints/designs.

Of course, your relationship with her might not allow something like this, and that's totally understandable. I do second what the other anon said; make a diary of the dresses' info and prices, and where to sell them.

>> No.10099518

>>10099504
As my mom can't into computers and doesn't know how to sell online, her only solution left would be to donate everything. She just can't let go of anything. I know she'd be hoarding my stuff for the eternity of time like she does with my fathers belongings. This is what worries me.

Still, making a list sounds like a good idea. I will write down which dresses were important to me, so she knows, in case she ever feels ready to part with some of my belongings, which items she can let go and which she can keep in remembrance of me.

I wish I could die in your place. I want to commit suicide (not a temporary thing - told myself since I was 14 that if I still feel the same by 30 I'd bite the bullet JUST to make sure and give things as fair of a shot as possible, and I turn 30 in summer). I always think about how unfair it is that I can't just donate the rest of my lifespan to someone who actually wants to live. My emergency plan is already in place though - I've pissed away 3/4ths of my life savings in presents for others and I'm gradually giving stuff away for very cheap so as to not raise suspicion.

Set your priorities straight anon!

You have ridiculous debt, and it's eating you alive. Sacrifice your short term mental health to clear your debt, not for lolita. When you've accomplished that, then you're able to think about spending again. Getting an extra job is a good idea, but all excess earnings should go into clearing your debt. Atone for your past sins and take a step back from your possible shopping addiction. It's good for you to hate your life and be stressed out when paying off your debt. Instead of alleviating that hell by buying new clothes, imagine the freedom and joy you'll get when debt free. Staying in debt is bound to make you an eternal poorfag. Climb out of hell, as arduous as it will be, and join the land of the living once more. The lolita will wait for you.

Chill gullfriend, please. When reading closely you're right, you say self medication and therapy in the same sentence, which does imply it's a problem and not a solution. You're aware that you have a shopping addiction, which is good.

But take note that you started this chain of replies with your sad/frustrated feel of wanting to get a second job to be able to buy more dresses. You were literally voicing your lolita need/greed before mentioning your deep debt problem as a side note. You write that you're ready to suffer for your lolita hobby, not your debt. The way you've expressed yourself paints a picture of someone in denial, just like those annoying ~treat yo'self~ "philosophers" who don't take account for the full picture. We don't know everything about you. By what you've given us to know it seems very feasible to get a second job, but for the opposite reason that you yourself said you're willing to suffer for.

As a man these days, what society doesn't teach us anymore is self control. It's no surprise that feminism is on the rise, and we should be acknowledging why it's gaining validity, but the irony is that loads girls who call themselves feminists encourage poor male behavior with their own sexual immorality, thus exacerbating the problem.

Con creeping is abhorrent though, but what do you honestly expect when you put a bunch of manchildren and overgrown girls together in one building? Sure, not everyone involved is immature, but a lot of adults who like bright and flashy cartoons, comics, and video games, have major maturity problems.

This is 4chan. I have no prospects or hope of getting a date by being on here and expressing my candid feelings. If I wanted to chase girls, there are a thousand better ways for me to be doing that, and moreover, the crux of my argument is that I believe a major portion of the problem is porn addiction and fornication. I know you're probably going to bash me no matter what I say, and I don't care. The ultimate point I am stressing regarding feminism, is that while I disagree with you in principle about hating men, I can see pretty plainly why you would. The problem is that it takes two to tango, and your fellow ladies who oblige shitty men and their perversions are part of the problem too. There are good men, good women, and bad men, and bad women. Full stop. The reason for this discord between men and women is sexual immorality and a culture shift towards instant gratification.

I won't lie, I myself am struggling with pornography addiction, but I'm not afraid to admit that I have problems that I need to fix. I'm not going to sit here and say that all men are predators because that's simply not true, but most young men and boys nowadays aren't taught to control themselves as well as we used to, and part of that problem is how readily available porn is. The problem manifests in our own sexual thoughts and desires, and it's pervasive among modern men, plain and simple. I agree with you on modern feminism, that it idiotically worsens the issues they routinely complain about because they're in denial over the fact that their "empowering" immorality is half of the problem ("muh slut shaming women / men behave like pigs doublethink")

I've been thinking like this because I went from being a lonely member spamming tfw no Lolita gf memes last year, to asking myself why I was posting those memes and why I felt like I was romanticizing this niche that had no actual meaning beyond the fact that the aesthetic appealed to me.

Sorry for the blog post aspect of this, but I'm stressing that when I make the observations that I do, it's because I saw a lot of these societal problems in myself and that I accepted I have to be brutally honest with myself if I ever want to improve my life. Again, I don't really care about saying shit to get laid or try and attract girls with this kind of thought. The only way that seems to be appropriate as it pertains to dating is:
>Respect yourself
>Be patient

And you'll meet someone nice sooner or later. I'm not in a rush to meet a girl, because I know that in the end, that problem will most likely sort itself out. I just have to keep living my life and when I don't expect it, I'll get an opportunity.

You're a fucking moron.
Guys who learn self control end up the beta bottom of the barrel orbiters. They end up holding back and respecting women too much, only to see that men who don't hold back are the ones winning the fancy of these girls. And most of the time it isn't even because they wouldn't have a chance with the girl they're orbittig, they just respect them too much to make the bold moves necessary to progress out of the comfort zone.

I can say this from experience. As someone who didn't lose his virginity until 29 years old because I respected women so much, because I had self control and never wanted to make "scummy" moves that felt selfish. Know where it led me? Into an endless cycle of getting really involved with girls that eventually find other partners and then admit later down the line
"Oh, I liked you a lot back then but we never hashed things out properly."

Evey time I was sure a girl liked me, I'd step back for a moment and try to prevent myself from being a "pig" so would keep myself from flirting or making meaningful advances. Then I stopped caring. As in, I still cared for women, but I stopped caring about holding back. I did things that younger me would have been ashamed of, but it was showing results. Suddenly I was able to snag girls with ease. I started being a "predator" and was finally happy. I didn't lack the looks or core personality to attract women, just lacked the mindset.

Disgusted but not surprised to know that I'm not only sexualized by pedos, but by men who want a "traditional", "conservative" girlfriend. Lolita may be more conservative than mainstream fashion, but it takes a bold individual to wear it proudly. If anyone else is lurking thinking we're all Stepford wives or even hetero at all, please go away.

Glad you're working on your addiction, anon. I agree that there are issues with porn and porn consumption, but I don't think the answer is banning it to be clear. People need to access better sex education resources and understand porn is a fantasy. I do think having so much free porn available is a problem, from both an a pervasiveness/addiction perspective and a pay-your-actors-better perspective. Much of what gets uploaded to free sites is stolen from paid sites or from private, paid shows without permission.

So it's someone else's fault that men have no self control?
Besides that, I agree with everything you said. But men need to take responsibility for the toxic culture they encourage. Porn didn't just spring up to mindfuck poor men into being worse individuals, it's a problem they caused.
Grats on coming to terms with your own immaturity, but men have to collectively realize that they encouraged this culture before they start bettering themselves. They won't, though, and the civility between the sexes will continue to break down.

See, I actually want to get married and stay committed to the same woman for my entire life, and raise kids. You also inferred things I didn't say in my post about my approach towards women. I mean to say that I'm not going to behave like a desperate or sex obsessed faggot who has to copulate with anything that moves, or even just be desperate enough to seek out a relationship so badly that I wind up lowering my own standards. I am pretty forward with girls I like, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. You sound like you were bad at being assertive and in control of your relationships with girls, and so you wound up getting dumped repeatedly. Most of my girlfriends, I actually wound up breaking up with amicably because I didn't feel like we had a future together. I'll admit, I haven't had too many girlfriends, but I'm not in a rush to try and get married and have sex. Those things are only complimentary to finding a girl who I get along with really well and makes a good companion for me, so that our relationship makes us both better people. Beyond that, I don't care about getting laid because I've got bigger immediate plans, like advancing in my career, improving my life habits, and training my musical talent.

You greatly misunderstand what it really means to have self control and equate it with cowardice. I just don't lose my shit at every girl I see nowadays, and when I do get interested in a girl, I just ask her out and go from there. If she's unhappy with the fact that I want to abstain from sex or something, that's fine, we just weren't meant for each other then. All's fair in love and war.

I'm just letting you know that there's a line between being a beta orbiter and being a predator, it's not a dichotomy or something, and sex isn't the only end goal.

Well if you consider how young most boys were when they first got introduced to and hooked on porn, you'll see it spreads like a mental disease. I was 12, and I know plenty of other guys who were 10 or younger when they first got hooked. You do have to own up to your own actions, but the truth is that our society makes it harder to abstain from this behavior by placing opportunities to falter behind every nook and cranny. Furthermore, most parents don't understand this problem yet or how it reaches kids while they're still too stupid to realize what they're getting into. So here, I'd say you've got the right principle, but you oversimplify the problem. It's like with obesity in society, only you can fix your weight problems, but the TV to the streets outside are filled with messages and temptation to eat crappy food.

So did I, you dense fuck. It doesn't work that way. You're not going to know who the "right" one is unless you actually explore your options, dipshit. Real life isn't a fuckin anime. You bang a bunch of chicks and find one who sticks. They're doing the same thing, dipshit. You're the beta fag who someone in their 30's settles for after she's fucked around her whole life to "explore herself and be unrestricted" before the crippling loneliness seeps in on them. You're probably still young. I'm 35. I've had long lasting and fulfilling relationships. I've also had lots of casual flings. With each one I became more confident in what traits I look for in women, what signs to look for when avoiding women, and how to actually give them what they want. You're not going to get that experience at the rate you're going, from the sounds of it.

You have to be confident, attractive, and not autistic enough that you misread clear social cues of mutual attraction. It's only sexual assault/predatory action when you lack any of those qualities. Otherwise you'll succeed in "predatory" actions 100% of the time.

You don't need to believe what I believe, but I'm not afraid of the consequences of following my beliefs.

I agree with your assessment. I wasn't commenting on the perpetrators of assault, however, I was just trying to characterize cons as like a lite version of an insane asylum. I don't want to be mean spirited, but since we're on the topic of it, there's just a shitload of autistic bullshit at cons because they're attractive to those types of people. Therefore, cons themselves need to find a way to filter some of these creepier / worse freaks out.

Crack the fuck down on con thots. The shit I'm hearing about prostitutes cosplaying at cons is fucking ridiculous. Even if that's not a big problem, the regular e-thots who encourage bad behavior need to be put on notice. Beyond that, you're the woman, what would you do with generally skimpy costumes? I personally feel like they should be regulated in some manner, but I'm not sure how you could properly regulate skimpy outfits or if that's even viable. All I remember is just when cons went mainstream, the main draw was for guys to be like "YO BRO, CHECK OUT THESE GIRLS WEARING SKIMPY CLOTHES, AND THIS GIRL IS DRESSED UP LIKE YOUR WAIFU HOLY FUCK", and to that extent, the defacto ostracization of predators from the scene to enforce better behavior is great, but I feel like there needs to be airtight policies to hold people accountable, especially men. Finally, I do want to point out that I find sexy costumes inseparable from attracting the wrong kind of attention in the first place.

There are certain things like purchases, frustrations, experiences, thoughts and feelings and even terminology that are directly tied to the fashion and to wearing the fashion that people who don't actively wear it won't understand, and it's much easier to talk about these things with someone who understands them from personal experience.
If we take terminology for example, it might not seem like such a big deal if you don't immediately understand the meaning behind a sentence like "I wanted to wear my AP OP with my SS TPS today, but my BTSSB OTKs are at my boyfriend's house", but understanding small and seemingly insignificant things like terminology right off the bat can be the difference between conversations that flow well and having to constantly stop and explain yourself to the person you're talking to.

but I have all of that. I've bought lolita, had frustrations (they sent me the wrong size and ran out of the larger size I need, thus why I don't own any right now), know all the terminology. You don't have to currently wear lolita to know/experience all that.

Have randos on the street commented on your frilly clothes in a way that made you happy/sad/scared?

Have you ever felt satisfaction when you found that one piece that's perfect for a coord you had in mind, or felt frustrated when you couldn't find one so you asked someone at a meetup for their advice or opinion, and they actually offered something helpful?
It's difficult to explain and summarize why simply knowing about the fashion vs. actively wearing it are completely different things, especially in one comment on an Indonesian basket weaving forum.

As another anon mentioned, some comms do accept newbies and other people who are interested in the fashion but don't actively wear it, as long as their interest is genuine. You can hit up your local comm and see if they accept you if you haven't yet; they might, and they might even allow you to attend their meetups before you have your first coord because some comms do that. But as was also mentioned before, some comms are more exclusive and allow only established lolitas to join and strictly enforce their dress code for meet ups, and you can sit here and argue all day about how you totally know more about the fashion than your friend so the fact you don't wear lolita doesn't matter, but it's not going to change anything in reality.

Wearing the fashion and the experience that comes with it is the activity. By your basketball analogy, sure you can be in a fan club without playing the game but you can’t expect to make the team can you?

By your logic you can start a lolita ‘fan club’ to watch everyone else wear the fashion but it still doesn’t a lolita make. Just because you know slightly more than your friend who knows literally nothing doesn’t give you the lived experience that exclusive communities run for established lolitas require.

If you’re truly interested in joining the subculture start by actually wearing the fashion instead of expecting your totally not lolita specific struggles of buying clothes online to equate to you actually participating in a fashion based subculture that requires nothing from you but to actually wear the fashion and know what you’re doing.

Big salt incoming, I'm insanely jealous of Lolitas with lots of disposable income who build fairly complete wardrobes in a short space of time.

I started lolita in my mid teens, we were a bit poor at home but alright, and my heart would ache seeing people buy so many things so quickly, especially back in 2009/10 when it was even tougher to find good deals online. I'd watch posts by people big wardrobe's like herajika, lunie etc and my heart would sink.

I'm in a better financial situation now and I have a stable income and enough to build my wardrobe properly, but I've been working on it for almost ten years at this point, because I'd usually need to sell something to afford something new before my current job.

Even now, progress is so slow. I just saw an Instagram story if someone who built what looks like a complete and large wardrobe in roughly two years, and I feel frustrated.

Despite this salt, I don't begrudge any rich lolitas what they have. I just admire and hope I can find all my DDs someday.

I'm one of those lolitas (albeit it's more like 6 years). I can imagine it sucks having to space it all out and budget and being unable to afford what you want, when you want it.

If it helps I find those who have to spend their money carefully make better choices and usually have a better idea of how to coord pieces multiple ways and are more conscious of how complete and polished their look is. Furthermore the lolitas in this position in my local are some of the best dressed and kindest.

I was a lone lolita forever and had been trying to keep my wardrobe under wraps to avoid being "that girl" and avoid these exact feelings and circumstances, but by accident a few people ran into a private wardrobe post of mine and I have been worrying a bit about whether it made anyone feel uncomfortable. If it did, they haven't shown it. I'm blessed to be surrounded by graceful girls, I guess.

Yep, it's a shitty position to be in.

Mental health comes first. The girls who throw themselves at you at your lowest are wanting to "fix" you and will vanish from your life when they feel they've done their part. The girls that don't realize how fucked up you are right now will after a while and also leave. The girls who are most likely to be accepting will be battling their own demons (codependency is unhealthy) or will have battled them in the past (and that goes one of two ways; she will either expect you to get over it like she did or she'll actually help - flip a coin). Being in a better mental state means you can give more to a person and to a relationship and will put you in a better position to find someone you genuinely love, rather than a temporary crutch.

Next, it sounds like your friends are shifting up a bit. You have two options here and neither have to involve ditching them, unless they are being utter cunts to you. In which case, gtfo. Either

> Start going to nerdier hangouts and events and make new friends, even joining local social media groups and doing the smaller stuff/online interaction if you're a bit reserved

> be open to liking normie things and let yourself enjoy it - shit's hard when weeb is your identity, but it can be and has been done

Finally, raves are a shit place to meet a girlfriend. I'm not saying it doesn't happen, but the environment is more conducive to "she's hot and I wanna fuck her" than "she's cool and I want to spend time with her" because it's dark, loud and people are drunk. I reckon your best shot is at aforementioned smaller events. Then you can rave together.

Good luck anon. It's a dark place, but there's a way out. Be kind to yourself.

Thanks for the well thought reply anon. The issue I get is that my formerly nerd friends are still nerds, and are good dudes still. They just have "better game", like they know how to flirt better. One of the friends was in the same boat but he got a girlfriend from some party several years back, and I think it really improved his "game". We all look like turbo-normies, and we're not full-on autism.

I never learned how to flirt because in high school I was too scared to actually ask girls out in case they thought I was weird and cut me off (as I was friends with most girls in my class which led me to fearing being cut). So the situation ended up was, I would be really good friends with several girls that I would like to date, but I would never ask them out, because I was really good friends with them. At the same time, I wouldn't want to date someone I couldn't be really good friends with (ex. similar hobbies). This is the fun little catch-22 that kills me.

But yeah though. I don't know how to cross the "friends to flirting" line delicately, and I think that may be my issue. I'll look into the nerdier hangouts thing, though.

Maybe it's because you ARE weird? 100% of the time if you're weird, people know you're weird but are too scared to tell you because they're afraid of what the weird kid would do. At best they'd just be annoying, and at worst, lives would actually be taken.

The thing that happened was me asking out this one girl I was super close with, only for her to decline and abruptly cut our friendship over just that. That kind of.... made me fear losing my other girl friends, and created this situation.

The thing is, these days the guys have no say or choice in the matter. It'll always be a no, for fear that you'll fucking murder or rape them.
So you just have to accept that and let them come to you, should they decide to face that risk and understand that you could very well hurt them and somehow act like there's something worth it underneath it all.

Tying this back into cosplay and /cgl/ though, that's why people go to cons to meet others who share the same interests. But even then, just know that you have no choice in the matter there either, especially considering how fucking autistic men are. They're why cosplay is not consent signs are up all over the place.

Sounds like you have some avoidant/abandonment issues? That's the first thing I'd maybe work on. The ability to let it go is freeing. When you don't value yourself, it's extra difficult to lose someone.

Don't listen to the other anons, you're not doomed. Just get out more to those little events. Brush up on your conversational skills and relaxing in the company of others. Don't push if you encounter resistance and get yourself banned. Not saying you're a complete autist, but a lot of men will sort of insert themselves into every conversation and not take a hint, especially in nerdy settings (the nightmare that was the PAX feedback panel in 2017 haunts me to this day).

Work on you. Give yourself a chance. The rest will usually come into place thereafter.

It isn't always a no, especially if you already know each other. If you're a dude who isn't a creep or a jerk, has a decent grasp of social skills and hygiene, and has some things in common with the object of your affections, odds are good that she'll give you a chance if she's interested.

>invisible zippers
Stitch them backwards to the right side and make sure the groove in the foot you’re using is a good match for the plastic part of that particular zip. You can tell because you can just sew a straight line and they’ll slide through quick and smoothly with a pin or 2 instead of you having to pull them into place to keep it straight. It’ll also be much easier to get your stitchline in really close, almost under the plastic. I didn’t notice this until I tried to use a different brand of zip where the plastic was wider and it flip flopped all over the place because it wouldn’t stay in the groove and slide through smoothly and I couldn’t get the stitchline in close enough where it was truly invisible.

Also if you’re thinking of using the one sided feet, don’t. Sorry for OT.

Nowadays that may as well be considered the same thing. Listen, any time a guy shows interest, it's always because he's a creep.
If a woman shows interest first, then even though they're putting themselves at risk, that's then on the guy to not let the woman down and not kill or violate her. And then maybe, just maybe, a friendship could form from there, and maybe even a relationship.
So yes, let them send the first message. Go out and do things, meet people, but don't show interest until they do first, that way they know you're okay. 'Cause otherwise you're not.

The point is, men hurt others no matter where you go, especially in the con scene (which is why the point about photographers and autistic manchildren were brought up). What does that have to do with dating? It means if you're a man and you want to date, you have to be aware that people hate men. You have to be aware that men are the ones who cause all the world's problems, they're the ones hurting people, they're the ones killing and raping women over whatever.
And if you still want to date, you have to be very aware of that. So if a woman's not receptive or is cold or wary to you? You know why. You are why.
Because you're a man.

As crazy as anon is, she is right. Men are unpredictable and are strong, that's enough of a reason to be wary of them. There is also an element of stranger danger involved too. The point she is trying to make is that if you want to move on in to a woman, do it without overstepping her boundaries. Look out of social cues in facial expression, tone of voice ect to determine if she uncomfortable or not. At least if you get rejected, you won't be seen as a creep.

Already the wrong mindset, to be honest. There's no age limit on cosplay as a whole, you just need to be mindful of the characters you choose. And don't push your wife into it, I know you're eager and excited but give her time and an opportunity to decide for herself.
Has she ever expressed willingness to attend a con with you? You could go together sans cosplay just so she can experience it, and if you're going to more than one day of the con, you can bring a cosplay for yourself and wear it, whether she joins you in her own casual clothes or not. See how she feels afterwards, she might have fun and want to try cosplaying herself, or not, but either way see it as a way to introduce her to one of your interests with no guarantee she'll actually enjoy it herself.

It's definitely a different experience but if she tags along with you while you're in cosplay, she might become curious enough to try it herself. But again, no pressure, just openly invite her to experience something that you love, and if she decides it's not for her, accept it.
Whatever happens, I hope you have fun and be happy!

I would have had a date night with boardgames, good food and dressing up in a coord I planned for the occasion. Sadly my bf got sick, and I can't risk contracting a cold due to work right now. So after work I baked some chocolate muffins, biked over to his house and delivered them. It was a brief but sweet moment to see his precious face...

On the bright side I already took pictures of my valentine's coord when I was planning and trying it on. Now I can post it despite not actually wearing it for the occasion.

My bf had an exam but I had the day off so I spent all day cleaning the house and doing other chores, only to find out that my bf invited his annoying friend (who hates lolita and will "jokingly" insult me whenever he sees me wearing or displaying it) over for dinner. I think he forgot that it's valentines day. His mom sent us chocolate hearts though, which I'll probably end up eating by myself.

I'm more doing it for myself (I have two weddings to go to this year too) but cosplay will be what benefits from it most eventually. I've gone from hitting a peak of 280lbs last month right after Christmas to hitting the 250s as of last weekend. Gym three times a week after work along with 18 hour fasts (breakfast and lunch under 1000 calories, no dinner or snacks until breakfast the following day) which I do on workdays. Usually I just have one meal in the afternoon on weekends and leave it at that because I usually just sit around in my free time playing videogames/listening to music when I'm not working. I feel much better in myself and my confidence has definitely seen an improvement. Still have a long way to go though!

well lads, valentine's day is officially over in CST. No gf, same as every year. Overall pretty good though, started off the day playing D&D with four of my friends, then went out for a little lunch to talk some more. Got home, relaxed, a lil bit of 4chan and some tea. Went to check on a family friend's cat while she's gone and got some cat snuggles for my trouble. Dad was pretty happy today, so that's always good (after two strokes when I was young, he has brain damage and relatively little impulse control, coupled with deep insecurity, he's quite prone to taking everything as an attack and blowing up in anger over everything. According to his old friends, he's quite different. They tell me that in a way, I never really got to know my dad, just a damaged husk.) Ma got home from work, gave her a big hug and talked a bit. Had plenty of time to practice guitar while watching some tv. After dinner, my ma and I sat on the couch and finished a movie we had started a few days prior. Afterwards pops came up to watch Colbert, and when they got tired, I tucked them in and said good night. That brings us to now. Tomorrow if I don't hear back from that library job I applied for, it'll be time to apply at the dollar general just to have something to do. Can't keep being a 20yr old neet. Gotta do something and I'm still saving up for a car. Had a big setback after the restaurant I worked at just stopped giving me shifts. I wasn't fired, the manager just didn't give me a single working hour for 3+ weeks. None of that matters now though.

Well I guess you can say that I tried, I asked out a girl that I knew for a while. She told me that she is a lesbian, which I never knew, we had a good laugh did some school work in the library, then left. So me and a few friends sat down and played some games, they wanted to know what was the result, as they gave me so advice on how not to be too awkward. I told them, one of them looked at me oddly and said that he just saw her kissing some guy in the parking lot 45 minutes ago. Honestly it really hit me hard, I am not sure what to do, I don't want to confront her, but I really wish that she was honest with me, but at least I tried

She possibly got a “nice guy” vibe from you so it makes sense (to her) to tell you she’s a lesbian rather than just flat out reject you. It’s not 100% effective but whenever I tell creeps I’m a lesbian they usually just back off.

Or she just felt bad and thought a lie would ease the blow a bit, without really thinking it through. It sucks, but all you can really do is respect her “lesbianism”.

Seconding that she probably got a vibe. I am a lesbian but I have a lot of friends who are bi girls who say this when they either don’t want hurt your feelings or they get a vibe that you’ll keep pushing it and they don’t wanna have to constantly cancel things or let you down easy when they just aren’t interested at all.

Sorry dude, but the joke is on her because more often than not saying you’re a lesbian doesn’t stop the actually creepy dudes at all. The only thing you can really do is just respect her rejection otherwise she will be thoroughly creeped out if you confront her on it or even mention that you heard she was with a guy.

Speaking from experience it’s feels really unsettling to be questioned/ doubted by a guy who I’ve told I was a lesbian after being asked out by. Even if she isn’t one she probably saw it as a safe exit.

HELP! I paid for express delivery, which landed me a UPS shipment. It was sent yesterday, Thursday, and the estimated delivery time is TUESDAY AFTERNOON. I need to have it Tuesday MORNING at the latest! Are they fucking kidding me? Is this supposed to be express??

It's a delivery within Europe, so I really don't see why it has to take five days, weekend included. Or is it a generous estimate since customs might want to fondle my goods? Can the estimated shipping time become a little earlier, even if it's just by some hours? Am I fucked?

Nervous daily lolita here: If you're out with your bf or anyone else, engage them instead of whoever is bothering you. If you take this scenario as an example: Instead of responding to the teens, you could have ignored them (even if it still bothered you inside, which is understandable) and talked to your bf about the movie you just watched. You could have also continued to do so even if the teens tried to get your attention to rile you up; unless they physically attack you, which is not okay no matter the situation, you're free to stubbornly ignore them no matter what they say or yell at you, and they'd just make themselves look like assholes eventually.
When it comes to going out on your own, personally I just listen to music in earphones to distract myself, that's usually enough for people to leave me alone, and if someone is being rude to me I just use it as an excuse to pretend I didn't hear them. If you do this, just make sure to keep the volume down so you don't hurt your eardrums and you're still aware of your surroundings to a degree.

I love how they kinda stop awkwardly unsure of what to do because they expected me to look away and get flustered. I love it when i see someone who's passing me is gonna do a double take and I turn around with a huge shit-eating grin on my face and just stare until they hobble away awkwardly.
