1.shes wearing japanese style clothes and is using a western icon
2. inb4 her light hair makes her want to be american. No. Does a blonde person dyeing her hair black make her look asian?
3.English is turning into a universal language, Japanese is not.

Now, this is racist: "its only cute when Asians do it, when anyone else does it, its gross", so it should be disregarded.

You may want to consider that foreigner is an insult in Japan. They are not as "obsessed" as you think.

My Japanese friends know and admit this and think its so damn funny that gaijin call other gaijin 'weeaboo'. At my weeb-iest moments with them, they just think it's funny and cute. So do their relatives. They are super-curious about American things and ask me all kinds of hilarious stuff about the US and I do same to them about Japan.

The most anti-gaijin Japanese friend I have still doesn't think I'm a weeb.

This kind of shit is just a western thing westerners shit on other westerners with. Ignore it and enjoy your interest in Japan. Maybe get a Japanese penpal.

I had this situation where I would always be looking for scissors. I only ever used them in the craft room, yet they would migrate as far away as the front porch, outside the house. Being a bit absent minded I always thought maybe I took them out of the craft room and forgot to put them back. I even buy new ones when I can't locate any of the old ones, then come across the older pair later on, which makes me think I must really be getting even more forgetful.

This goes on for a couple of years, until one year I overhear my brother telling his friends "Look in the craft room. The scissors always migrate there for some reason. It's like magic, I don't know how it happens". Then his friend grab a pair of scissors from the craft table, take it to the living room where they use it, and then leave it there.

Well at least I'm not really being forgetful after all.

Letting them know that they only get to hang around adoring me if they buy me things. That conveniently scares most of them away right quick.

I'm married. It won't. Some of them seriously think so highly of themselves that they genuinely believe they can get me to cheat on my husband. That's just rude, but they don't care because "that's just an obstacle xD".
If I didn't want to keep things civilized I'd personally kick their ass until they go cry to their mamas how all women are sluts ("except for you, mommy").
One of them (there was two, in a span of several months) posted a status how he got rejected and one of his FEMALE friends said "you should have gotten the girl ;("

So fucking what? Just reject them every time. Maybe they'll get used to it.

Stop playing a fucking oppressed victim because some men want to pump semen inside you.

This is what rampant feminazism does to women. "Wah, wah, wah! Men are hitting on me! Wah, wah!"

In the 90s, women actually used to be normal human beans about it. Like Bob from Frasier would always hit on Roz and she'd just brush him off instantly. She never blogged about it on the Internet and cried "P A T R I A R C H Y" because of it.

We're not each other types and I'd never leave my girlfriend for anyone. I tried to talk to him about it, but he ignored me and decided to take it out on her.

I don't know, man. I wish he wasn't homophobic like this, but now that I look back, I'm not surprised.

Take an insulated lunchbag full of ice packs with you for your foot on the bus.

Take painkillers for it.

Take a hot bath if you can (If you live at your university I guess that's not possible) or just soak your foot in a hot epsom salt bath.

I broke my thumb playing hockey in gym class in high school, and those all helped a lot with the pain.

Maybe you should take a semester off if you can? Let yourself recoup, relax, and generally just feel better. I did that this semester, and I'm in so much better shape than I was. I was like you, always getting sick, missing classes, etc. and taking time off has really helped.

Hope you feel better, anon. Stress can really mess up your system.

Ahh, it was actually just like gym class hockey!

Our teacher was a personal trainer, so we had to go hardcore or we'd fail, and hockey is one of the few sports I'm not awful at. I went head to head with one of the actual hockey players on the team and ended up getting my thumb caught between our sticks.

It really sucked, because I'm a majorette, and thumbs are like... necessary. I had to compete baton0less for two weeks (which got my team brownie points from the judges - an injured teammate participating is always good for that) and then it hurt like a bitch to practice.

As for graduation, just taking off a semester wll just push it back a semester. As long as you have the will to go back after the semester off, you should be fine. It'll refresh you, and probably give you a new motivation too.

I feel kinda bad about it, but I cannot stop. I know this is the perfect opportunity to save money for later; I have about 600€ in savings but nothing else. As I said, almost all my money goes directly into Lolita/other selfish stuff... Because its the only thing that makes me happy now. Buying and wearing Lolita brightens up my day a little when I have to walk to Uni again, spending 8+ hours there most likely not talking to anyone and feeling shitty in general. Thank god we have holidays right now, the thought alone of going back and tacking responsibility and walking around alone etc etc makes me want to throw up.

We do both cosplay, usually from separate series. But this does give me an idea, maybe I could convince him to join more cosplay groups or join some myself. He's just so ridiculous sometimes. The last con we went to we were halfway through the dealers room (the only thing I really wanted to see at the con) when suddenly he decides to drop everything and leave to go do something else and got mad that I didn't want to. He also insisted on perusing the dealer's room together but at his own super slow speed, right before ditching me, which meant I didn't even get to see the entire thing before it closed.
Maybe it's petty but he does stuff like this all the time at every convention. He also argues with me when I don't want to go to panels. I'm not sure how to go about convincing him to join cosplay groups, though, as he's in more contact with cosplayers than I am.

Cosplay used to be something I really, really wanted to do back when I first discovered it a decade ago. I had such a long wishlist of characters from Dreamcast and PS2 games and lots of early 21st century anime (mostly Gonzo) which I fell in love with throughout high school and wanted to cosplay once I was able to afford it.

Now? I'm ready to give up.

I just don't feel up to it anymore, I'm completely lacking in motivation. I have a cosplay I've been working on, but I feel like dropping it and just spending my money on things I still feel like I can enjoy.

I'd say if you are too poor to eat sometimes then you shouldn't be thinking about buying Lolita at all. Especially if working compromises your health and I assume, your schooling.

I do understand I am only doing three subjects this year instead of four like last year and started seeing a doctor about my health again..got that b12. Last time I'm not sure exactly what was wrong all I know is that I was extremely b12 deficient and got diagnosed with something else later on in the year. I won a small scholarship for uni and I'm in Aus so our summer break isn't until November. I just dislike being poor so much and having lack of food at times and lack of savings. I will also need an operation soon but thankfully because of health insurance I will probably not have to pay much/at all, but health insurance is rising to just under a $100. I definitely have cut back on lolita. It's just hard living with my current financial state maybe I'll get better at it. We had a careers counsellor present a lecture the other day she was extremely fascinating so I think I might go and talk to her about it all. I'll probably see the normal uni counsellor too talk about the surgery/time off etc.

I think I'm getting over my ex.

But then I have moments where I wonder what I'd do if I were to run into her again. What would I say, what would she think...

I guess if I were truly over her, I wouldn't be thinking about that. I shouldn't... care about that, and even the thought of seeing her again in some manner shouldn't phase me.

I was the same way about my ex for a while, except I actually did run into her at some point and all I did was stand there, confused that she even approached me.

It's normal to consider "what if"s, as long as you don't want the person back.
(also keep in mind that missing attention isn't the same thing as missing a person)

You might still have a slight attachment, especially if the break-up was recent, but try to let yourself get distracted. One day, you'll pause and think, "When was the last time I thought about her?" Then you'll truly be over her.
There's nothing wrong with these thoughts as long as they're not frequent and you don't dwell on them.

I'm 100% sedentary and I've lost 10 kgs in the past 8 months (62 - 52). Here's what I do

-1 regular low protein low carb meal a day
-High fiber low sugar fruit smoothie (banana, nonfat yoghurt, blue/strawberries, ice, 1/2 cup milk, agar powder for extra fiber)
-Lots of green tea whenever I feel hungry

I still snack and eat out on weekends, just 5 days a week keeps me down. I also play lots of video games, find something that sucks you in and keeps you occupied so you don't boredom eat. Don't keep snacks around the house, buy more fruit and veg. If you have to do lots of prep and cooking to eat it'll deter casual snacking. I started out going to the gym but it gave me skin outbreaks (sweating + unhygienic environment triggers my eczema). Sometimes I go for a walk or do wall sits if I feel like it.

I probably inherited my mother's thyroid disfunction. My brother has it too, and I am getting tested next week.
It is nothing really bad, it will not really affect my life, and I would not mind it too mich if it wasnt for the fact that it is probably fucking up my hormones forever.
Last year, I got really bad acne all over my face, my back, my cleavage - bruning, inflamed, red spots fucking everywhere, worse than alle my acne in my teenage years. Even worse, I started to gree facial hair - not only a lady stache, now, thick, black, long hair on my chin, dozens of them. Hair growth increased everywhere on my face, my cheecks, chin, even my fucking throat. A fuckton of hair, long, and slowly turning darker, making me look like a stereotypical 14 year old boy with bad unhygenic skin and acne trying to grow babbys fist beard. No matter how much I pluck them, it is just impossible to get rid of them - there is so much, and they leave kind of a stubble; if you touch mich chin it feels like touching said 14 year old boy not having shaved for 7 days (which is why I wont let anyone touch my face anymore). It is disgusting, and worst, I guess the only way to get rid of them might be through laser sessions for hundreds and hundresd of euros. And if I inherit that disfunction, it is probabyl going to get worse - and I am terribly afraid of going bald like my mother does.

Shit sucks. Guess I will have to swallow pills for the rest of my live and stop buying Lolita to save up the money to get rid of my facial hair. Great...

Your friends are pretty dumb to give up PAX for an anime convention. You should go to the PAX/PaxPassExchange Reddit and look for people selling hotel rooms. Around this time, a lot of people drop out and are trying to fill in rooms/sell tickets, so definitely tell your bf to buy a ticket ad look at it.
Then after PAX, laugh at your friends for picking an anime con which is probably nothing special over PAX.

Not always. Virginity is the same as being short. Doesn't matter how handsome you are, as a short man, you literally don't exist to most women if you're below 6 ft. This is such an undeniable problem that they even made an article about it on Cracked.com, which is usually a feminist hellhole which spits upon men from up high and puts pussy on the pedestal.

Yeah, right. Most (attractive) girls lose it these days at the age of 11-13 to the popular guy a few years older than them. Obviously, they don't become clingy because it's often the same guy for multiple girls.

Also, any man who says "ew, virginity is putting me off!" is a confirmed mangina who gets laid once per year tops. Even though the sex is worse, you have the extra gratification of being "her first" - the first man to taint her with your seed. Shove that "clingy" bullshit up your ass; there's nothing preventing the alpha from just pumping and dumping you after he took the only valuable thing you had (we even have real life, /cgl/ examples - Voldemort and DerpQueen's brother / Matt - you think he felt bad about it? LEL no! the only one who paid the price was Voldefart - it took her sanity and she became an Internet whore).

Is it really such a big deal for you, anon? If it is, of course you should share, as well as you should feel free to ask her about it too.

You said men shouldn't care. Then you say they should.

Virginity isn't a big deal, but someone who thinks she should dump her bf for being a virgin is a red flag for me.

Well at least she lost her virginity to a real man, not to some worthless beta. Plus, I never liked her anyway, she was a talentless shitty cosplayer who only got attention because "oh my god this is such pure cute girl where can I ask her out". Now that she's a slut literally nobody gives a fuck about her and everyone calls her out on how shit her cosplays are (rightfully).

well, [male] virginity is a big causer of feels - feels of disgust among women who are in the presence of a male virgin (a girl can tell, even if he doesn't tell her; it's instinct), and insecure feelings among men themselves

plus, male virginity is the #1 cause for misogyny, that's an undeniable fact

It's all about approach anon. When I say to hold back I mean not to go spaghetti with a random girl.
If this is an actual relationship, and you think she should know, then she should.
Each relationship is different, there's no advice that is fail-proof. And I agree with you, that tells a lot about her personality, and is well deserved red-flag.

I just don't get what's the big deal and why women consider it a dealbreaker.

Isn't something like how caring he is more important than that? My mother was my dad's first girlfriend and I'm pretty sure he was a virgin. They went through many things that would make most people break, my mother became blind and depressed for countless years but my dad was always there to support her.

But most women would look down on my dad for staying a virgin up until his 20s.
