All a man needs to do is:

> not be obese
> practice hygiene
> not be impoverished
> Not be rude
> not be obese
> be polite

And 'all' a woman needs to do is:

> have large breasts
> be slightly underweight
> have a small labia minora
> have long, straight, non-curly hair
> have eurocentric features
> never go without nail polish
> wax everything regularly
> have a PERFECT body like pic related. Any amount of minor imperfection will be harshly criticized and rejected
> tolerate bad behavior like drinking and smoking
> never talk about serious things like the world ending or the economy crashing or conspiracies. Only talk about lighthearted airhead things like movies and songs.
> work full time
> cook for the family
> clean for the family
> do all the errands for the family
> raise the kids too somehow while cooking, cleaning, and working full time

Has anyone else noticed that women will be fans of unattractive/unconventionally attractive men and male characters, in any fandom, while men will only every be fans of attractive women? It's an objective and measurable phenomenon, since you can see it from the money they make.

Girls like Ed Sheeran, Benadryl Cucumber, ugly Yowamushi Pedal characters, South Park characters, Snape, etc etc. In Kpop groups the most popular male idols are often the less attractive ones but the best singers. I've never seen this in men. The most attractive female idols, characters, actresses, singers, etc are always the most popular ones. Lately fujos on /a/ are obsessed with the matsus, pic related, while male otaku want nothing but pure virginal schoolgirls with huge tits or lolis.

Otaku are incredibly shallow, moreso than even bimbo valley girls. It makes me sick.

I remember seeing something once where guys were asking who were girls' favorite male Disney characters, and the answers were all stuff like Rodger from 101 Dalmations, Tadashi Hamada, etc. And the guys were genuinely shocked because they thought girls were into characters like Gaston, and general prince characters and found the male characters girls were into "unattractive."
It was this interesting divide between girls liking those guys for their personality and unconventional looks, while guys just assumed girls would instantly flock to what are essentialy male fantasy characters.

I've known lolita since 2007 and eversince fell in love with it but due to my asshole parents,illness that makes me unable to work, and an abusive gf who used to put me down,...i never got to really wear and enjoy it.

Today i visited a friend for the first time, she had so many many lolita stuff it was my first time seeing so many i had sparkles in my eyes, i was so happy when she told me i could try some on. I choosed to try on a cute AP strawberry JSK and after that i got to wear an old school black and white BTSSB JSK, i fell in love with lolita all over again. I felt so pretty even though i hate my body and face, it made me feel pretty.

I'm gonna do my best despite my illness (can't work bc no student statuts as i work at home, was heavily bullied, and government pay for my meds and without their help we're screwed but i can work "in black" like babysitting for example) to get to wear lolita, i don't want to wear lolita just at cons and meetings (i never go to any anyway, don't like the comm) i also just want to be able to wear it in my room or even when i go out (i'm self conscious and scared of what people think i need to try and stop that).

We just talked,took pics and listened to some Kanon Wakeshima and stuff.
I came home and i just cried for no reason, maybe i was tired, maybe the happiness of finding lolita back. I just feel so much better again...

Stay friends with that girl. The best thing you can do in life is surround yourself with positive, nice people who share a similar interest. Maybe look into jobs where you can Telecommute? One of my friends is handicapped in a wheelchair and she recently got a job that allowed her to Telecommute. She does all of her work via email and phone calls, and will occasionally skype if she is needed.

>> No.8761932

I stay away from the comm because i don't like it, and it's just the same bitchy girls showing off discreetly and every meeting is just a "who's the prettiest with the most brand" contest. I love brand, i just want to have lots of it, but seriously these girls just don't get the spirit of lolita. To me it always has been a tiiiiny bit more than "just clothing" and yeah.

For my "illness" it's just that it can't be a "declared" (for the taxes and shit) job. But thanks i'll look into that. I'm going to Paris in february to see a girl i'm very close to (as in, we can totally see each other naked in a bath without feeling ashamed or kiss each other and cuddle at night and not feel awkward the next morning) and there's a Baby store there, i plan on taking something back home i'm so excited!!

a minor issue but I was so looking forward to it. I don't want to spend any more money on myself this season and getting a dress that was 'good as new' with a problem is a little annoying when the seller barely acknowledges the mistake.

This makes me happy. Don't let your dreams just be dreams anon. Baby Paris store is cute too. enjoy your February trip to see your special lady.

>> No.8762323

Can you safety pin or otherwise temporarily secure the back of the dress, and then just wear some kind of jacket, sweater, or coverup over the dress to cover the back of it? It's still crappy that the seller didn't notice such a major issue.

>> No.8762325

>> No.8762332

Is it the season of broken zips and variable 'like new condition'? I got a JSK recently with the hook and eye broken, the zip won't stay up all the way for me without it. The seller did acknowledge she should have checked the dress better which is honest of her.

Minor or not, there's nothing wrong with feeling disappointed something you were looking forward to isn't as you'd hoped. Agree with the anons that you should use a pin/tiny clip in the meantime and gently ask the seller if she'd mind paying for or contributing to fixing of the damage.

I stopped going to my psychiatrist because he's an asshole and now I'm struggling to find a new one, all the while my medicine is dwindling down and I'm getting withdrawals, including weight gain. Plus finals weeks meant no time to work out, plus upcoming period...I feel like a balloon. I got back to the gym today and it felt great and now I'm home and I looked at myself in the mirror and my stomach still looks huge. I have a con in a week and I'm afraid to even see if my dress stll fits, the thought of putting it on gives me so much anxiety...which I have no medicine to combat. It is impossible to find a psych in this town + even my old drs office rarely answers their phone

>> No.8762495

Maybe you should just go back to the asshole for the script, tell him you've got a bunch of exams and you're busy but you'll be back for a proper appointment after the exams, make up an arbitrary date that will give you time to find a new person and get this other stuff sorted.
If you're unable to get your meds, you might feel better just going to the con in something comfy, don't put yourself in a stressful position.
You might feel better when your period happens.

All of the advice I have to give you sounds so arbitrary, but really, you just need to spend as much time with friends or push yourself to be around other people such as a job or club. If you don't let new people in then you can't let past people leave.
On the positive side, she might miss your friendship too, if you can go to the con with your friends and perhaps act around her like you wish you could in a light and friendly manner, your friendship could heal over time.

>> No.8762503

I've done that already lol, begged for a script over the phone and they gave it to me, they made me promise I would go to my next appt, I tried to go to it, and turns out they never scheduled it. That's around the time I gave up on them. The office sucks, it's super far from my appt, and the doctor has absolutely no bedside manner (they do a blind weight every appt, and he fucking tells me how much i gained or lost every time....never remembers what actual diagnoses i have...told me my suicide attempt didn't count as a suicide attempt because it happened after a fight with an abusive bf...?). I'm fed up but rn they're my only choice, so I'm just gonna have to keep calling them until they answer and pray they're still taking new patients/will take me back without making me re-register as a new patient.

I'm going for a lolita tea party though and I'm still a newbie so I only have one dress, and you need to wear lolita to get in. But it might not be a bad idea to see if I can play around and find something more comfortable to wear.

Sorry for venting but I hate this guy + I need medicine ASAP and it's so stressful. Thank you for responding to my crazy rants lol, nice to have someone hear you out.

As someone with relatives in a shitty country with shitty customs and even shittier currency, I'd say the best thing to do is go through bids when you know they're ending soon (like, in ten minutes), pick something you like, and wait until the last 5 seconds to bid. If you win you get cheap shit with free shipping, if you lose, well, there's plenty more where that came from.
I have a massive watch list of BINs on ebay and whenever I have a bit of spare cash and need retail therapy I poke around to see if there are any auctions for the items. You can get jewellery and stickers and even clothes for dirt cheap this way, and you don't have to worry as much about overspending.
Plus, if you can gather the less-liked impulse buys and sell them, you'd be able to make quite a bit of cash, because normalfags eat that shit up like you wouldn't believe. They also don't believe you can get stuff for cheap online. Seriously, I've had to school family abroad in the ways of cheap China shit over email enough times to be able to tell you that people think a pair of kawaii elephant earrings is the pinnacle of sophistication and must be sold for at least ten times the original price. Things like novelty bags and see-through socks are also huge moneymakers, if my aunt's booming finances are anything to go by. And if you can afford it, and can craft, real pearls are cheap as hell and sell super well.
Don't let a third-world shithole country with Depression-era currency get in the way of your kawaii shit, seagulls.

Lol, I've been in similar situations. If it's any consolation, being shafted by your own social incompetence is what got me to overcome my anxiety. I still have it, but I can ask for directions and order food without rehearsing it in my head and don't get caught up in my fear as often.

Depending on how long it's been, you could have the pharmacy fax in a refill request and if they're lazy about it they might just fill it. I did that with my old shitty psychiatrist once and it got me out of actually talking to her for about a year before I had to find a new (also shitty because fml) one.

Ironically, I'm looking for a psychiatrist with a super shitty bedside manner. The only psych I've liked is my first one, who was 100% business and didn't try to therapy me along with my medication prescription. I already have a therapist that I see every two weeks, so I don't like it when someone I see once every 3-6 months tries to get involved in my life.

Holy shit what reality are you living in. All a woman needs is a vagina and she's set. Which essentially means every woman is set just by existing. No girl in history has ever been unable to get a boyfriend over lacking any of those things.
Meanwhile for a man right off the bat you have to be a born a certain minimum height or you immediately have no chance (with the only variance in womens preference being that some only date tall guys, and some only date REALLY tall guys). And then if you were lucky enough to be born right you also need to be independent, having a good job, your own car and house/apartment, to be attractive you need to lift heavy weights which is much harder than just staying thin which is all a woman needs, and have the social skill to be confidant enough to approach a girl (since they'll never approach a guy first) and be funny/charming/somehow appealing enough to have her say yes, which just means now you have to spend a ton of time and money trying to impress her even more on a bunch of dates, so that she MIGHT finally agree to be your girlfriend.

If this weren't true, how do you explain how literally every woman has or has had relationships and sex (usually multiple times) yet lots of men haven't had that or even less? Do you really believe every woman is just much more hard working and socially skilled? Or could it be that you're all just playing a much easier game. So much easier in fact that it's nearly impossible to lose.

I'm a closet bisexual, and I met one of my best guy friends at Anime Expo 2013. After meeting him in cosplay and dancing at the rave together, he told me he was gay.

For the days following that, he started coming onto me thinking that there was some mutual interest. Being a "jock" at the time, I lied and told him that I was 100% straight. I guess I just felt awkward since there was a cute guy being super forward and flirtatious towards me and I didn't know how to deal with it.

Two years have passed, and we still go to cons together. He's dated a couple of guys, and I've dated a couple of girls, but... There' this weird feeling of longing whenever we hang out now. Like we both could've been. But I'm feeling pressure from my family since their only other child is gay, so they kind of "need" me to make them a grandchild.
It's just, I really regret not telling the truth earlier. I would fight wars for this boy and his beautiful personality, no joke.

Sidestepping that huge debate of whether you should feel you have to be the straight baby making machine for your family, you should know that you'll probably still be fertile for a very long time. Men are able to 'put off' that stuff for a while, the man being older is very typical in hetero couples anyway, not to even mention the whole other possibility of just have a kid with another guy.
Go and enjoy your life, if you and him end up getting together one day just make sure that you're honest about oneday wanting a family, and your family's expectations on that. I don't know about your future wife, but I'd rather be with someone who's enjoyed their life and knows where they want to be now, I would hate to have a child with someone only to find that they felt trapped and like they hadn't had a life where they could be free.

surrogates exist, as do unusual arrangements. you don't need to be married to a woman to have a child with one.

make sure if you go for your guy who you claim is worth fighting for, you let him know you're insecure about this. be honest because you lied to him before.

Thanks for the good advice. What you said was definitely true. Living a lie and then marrying a woman because of my insecurities isn't fair for either her or me.

I've done a lot of research into my options, but I just can't find my parents "accepting" any of them. But maybe I'm just fearful of nothing. They're not those kind of people, since they accepted my bro. And if it's your grandchild, even if only in name, what's not to love about it, right?

Thanks everyone. I think the main part that's difficult is that the lie has pretty much dictated how we've grown as friends for so long. Telling him now is just a little screwed up. But yeah, it definitely has to happen sooner or later.

Who knows. Maybe he's already caught on that I was fibbing. Either way, we're hanging out tomorrow, so it's a good time as any to tell him. Not even as a proposal to a relationship, but just to clear the mist. Reading your guys' advice and typing out my own have put things in a much clearer perspective.

Anon from a few threads ago here, the one that was being kind of depressed about exams and might get kicked out.

Turns out I am. Well I'm not getting kicked out really but if I were to finish this year I wouldn't be allowed to continue.
I feel like shit, and a huge disappointment to everyone around me. Especially because my siblings are doing so well. While it sounded like that in my original post because I was panicking, I'm still not really up to killing myself though the ideas are still in my head.

I'll probably continue this year regardless because I genuinely have nothing else to do and sitting in my room for the next 8 months doesn't seem like a great idea either.
Honestly I don't really know what to do next. I feel like I wasted everything away and I have zero passion in anything, which was a major issues for what I was studying already, and I can't imagine what to pick now.

Sorry for the rant, I haven't really told any friends yet because I'm too ashamed of myself and can't find a place to vent about it at all.

>> No.8763609

Sorry for incoming blog post, I just need to vent a little.

I know this is complaining at high level but it still bothers me a lot. My boyfried and I are both students. I still live at home, but I have a part time job in order to pay for all my hobbies and extra stuff I want. He has his own (small)flat which his parents fully pay for, as well as for his basic expenses. It's not very much though so he rarely has much spending money.
We have been together for a few months now, and he doesn't have a job. At first this didn't bother me, but now it does bother me more and more. Since I have a part time job and work 10-20 hours a week I have some cash, while my boyfriend is pretty much a poorfag.

Maybe I have unrealistic expectations or I'm spoiled, but to me it feel less "adult". He never invites me to dinner (and I hate dragging him to restaurants even when we split the bill as I know he has little money), we can rarely go out and at conventions I feel bad because I can actually buy stuff, unlike him.
Also many of the Lolitas in our comm have recieved nice Lolita gifts from their bfs, and while I can pay for my own burando I was still a little jealous. I also plan to attend a big tea party in another state next year and I would take my bf with me for a little vacation as it is during semester break, but as said I'm not sure if he could afford it.

Problem is, he doesn't seem to mind and doesn't search for a job at all. Whenever he wants something more extravagant he has to save up for months, or (mostly) his grandparents pay for him. But it bothers me a lot. Idk how to talk about it though. "Get a job because it bothers me" doesn't seem to great...

>> No.8763626

how are his grades? if he can get away with not working while in school, kudos to him. my grades suffered because of needing to work.

it sounds like he is not asking for much from you, and that he is not particularly materialistic. you should talk about how you'd like to do fun things together that he could afford if he had a part-time job, but if he'd rather focus on his studies that's not a bad setup he has.

He is almost finished. Due to some changes in his choice of study course he has to add an extra year but he has almost no classes left, and therefore doesn't need to study too much.
He definitely has enough time for a little extra work.

I feel terrible and a bit matericalistic to be honest. I don't want to go all "le patriarchy forced unrealistc expectations teeehe!!!" but I still somehow expect that once in a while I could be invited by my partner to a nice dinner, or to the cinema, or have a stupid plush toy bought for me at the con. You know, little stuff like that. I can afford to invite him out or buy him a nice xmas gift but rarely can I expect to get stuff like that back.

>> No.8763656

you want your actions to be reciprocated, which isn't unusual. not having a reciprocal relationship bothers a lot of people because a lot of people want mirroring. for me, i am not easily angered and i like to talk about problems rationally, so if someone i love lashes out a lot (harmlessly, not abusively), i struggle with wanting them to treat me more like i treat them.

your imbalance happens to be materialistic, but imbalance in any relationship can be bothersome. just talk it out. anyway, if he has a lot of free time, building his resume is the smart thing to do. the job market is balls for recent grads so he will benefit from any kind of work experience.

>> No.8763681

You can get through this anon.
You sound like you genuinely want to do better, so please don't treat yourself as if you're a good-for-nothing. I know there are even others on this board who have failed courses, dropped out or been NEET for a long time, but many of us have picked ourselves up afterwards and slowly made something to be proud of again. The situation you are in does not define you, how you keep working to improve it does. It can hurt when people around you are doing so much better, but life isn't a race, anyone that loves you will just want to see you trying and not being sad, so I hope you can talk to your friends soon. Perhaps further education just isn't your thing?
Possibly accepting what options are currently closed for now will allow you some spare energy to make plans for what to try next, consider the time until you finish your course as a planning phase. If you can find a careers adviser who is a nice person, they can really help.

Wanting someone who shares your values and puts in an equal investment into the relationship isn't something to be ashamed of. It will be hard for you to phrase it in a way that he doesn't take it like >>8763647
If he prefers having time over money it can still work if you're both willing to try, my boyfriend pays for more and so I'll do more cooking and cleaning, which might sound old fashioned but it eases my conscience and was my idea. You've been together a few months now so it might be best to be honest before the relationship goes any further.
Seconding anon's thing about the job market though btw

>> No.8763706

Honestly, welcome to this generation. I'm a college art teacher. Every quarter they make me teach at least one 100-level course, and I ask who has a job. (I ask because we have required life drawing tests, and work is one of the few reasons I allow rescheduling tests, as well as digital sketchbooks due daily, which work can delay for some students)

Every year the number of employed students drops lower and lower. Unfortunately it seems young men are dropping the fastest. This quarter's intro art I have 11 male students, and 24 female. Of those around half the women are employed, and only three men. (And one of those is in his forties just taking classes for fun after work)

I'm seeing late teens through twenties adults staying home and letting mom and dad pay for them much longer. There's this atmosphere that being a leech even in the late twenties is absolutely normal, which is a bit strange to me, honestly. Wouldn't you want some personal money? Some sense of independence? At least lighten your burden on your parents? I understand that is harder to afford a place on your own now, but to be in your late twenties and to never have held a job in your life? That just seems dysfunctional to me.

I feel like maybe contributing to this is that the job market in some places is still a bit rough. If you're 15 and applying for waiting tables and they want 3 years experience, it's rough, especially if it's your first job. And say you don't get the job, or the next one. Or you're focusing on school. And then you're 18 and not had a job and stressed about college and it's a lot scarier. And then you're 21 and mildly panicking and absolutely out of your pants shitting yourself over a simple interview. I got my first job at 15 and have a good variety of experience and a degree now, but my friend who struggled with school and didn't have the teenage summer job is now 21, never had a job and applying for jobs is this massive terrifying thing for him because he's never done it. Saying that I'm 21 and fuck knows when I'll be able to move out. I don't understand how people don't want the independence, it drives me crazy living at home, but I can understand why some people end up leeching.

Honestly that is what I am wondering too.
My Uni is at the most expensive city at the state, and I didn't move out because that would have placed a serious financial burden on my parents. It is much cheaper for them if I live at home (also we live in the same city my uni is located so moving out makes even less sense). And it was actually my parents who suggested I stay at home, because of the aforementioned amount of money it saves them.
But on the other hand, I have to work for my pocket money, and to be honest it feels so liberating to me. And as someone who can't live independently from my parents yet work and having my own money is the part of my life that gives me at least a small sense of being an adult.

But my bf seems happy with his parents to finance his life. I have to say that they are well off, therefore he doesn't qualify for government benefits, and they are legally obligated to pay a certain amount of money to him anyway.
He even has held jobs in the past, so he is no stranger to work, but he seems to have lost all interest in having a job, and earning some extra money. Especially when his grandparents often give him extra money and buy him stuff. But as someone who has to work hard for their spending money it makes me a little bitter to see he has no interest in work.

You can make ten bucks per sock with the right buzzword but peple will only buy them every so often, she ofte has to bid on them using a sock puppet to stop them for going for too little and if she wins them herself she can't put them back up again in case someone knows. You can increase your sales if you post photos or videos or something of those socks in use, and more and more stuff like this until you're eventually just camming and selling used panties.

Honestly as long as you have a job, living with your parents doesn't have to be leeching, especially if you do your share of cleaning and help take care of the house. Some of my friends are trying to move out with part time jobs and rent a tiny house in a shitty part of town and it's going to take 5 of them to pay the rent and they almost all have pretty unreliable jobs like retail so it's going to be super tight all the time, which I think is pretty pointless. Young adults should be saving money while they're working part-time as young adults so when they get to their chosen career so they have money to move to an apartment somewhere in the city where their job is. You're not a mooch just because you don't move out as soon as you turn 18, that's ridiculous. Unless you luck out and get a really high paying job at 18 don't waste your money on a shitty apartment somewhere just stay at home and save your money so you can afford a nice apartment at around 25.

Yeah, I have never held a job either. I have gotten paid for temporary work, but nothing I would consider a 'job'. My parents aren't supportive of me getting one either.

I live at home at 23 and currently don't have a job (actively looking though). My situation's a bit different- I was planning to move out a lot earlier but all my savings went to vet bills and house repairs and car maintenance (family's, not mine) that couldn't be put off, so I have fuck all left. My parents don't mind me staying, but I hate being unemployed with a burning passion, and my mother is desperate for me to ditch work and study so I can 'find my true calling'. My true calling is getting cash so I can buy anime figures and manga, but she can't understand that someone would work solely for cash.
Students are in an awkward situation, where free time isn't actually free, and if you do have a part-time job you don't have time to relax or do schoolwork. It sucks major balls, and I'm glad I didn't go down that route, because all my friends who did were stressed as shit and also broke.
If you're a sheltered idiot, you see waiting tables while you learn is a waste of time, because you won't be doing that when you're pulling in 10k a month with your sought-after art degree. The real world is a horrible shock to many people, especially students who have been told their whole lives that a degree will open doors. Sometimes that door leads to piles of cash, but it's usually just the door to shift work at the local supermarket. Don't judge too hard, they were just raised by people who grew up in a time when degrees meant something.

I'm sorry for non cgl but I have no one else to go

I realised this fall that I fucked up at choosing my new school, I knew they had a bad rap but I hoped things would change since I knew new management was coming in

turns out things got way worse with the new management so I started looking into whether I could switch schools starting january. I messaged another school I applied and got in to and they said 'yeah we might make an exception since we remember you and you did really well'

I sent them my current gradesheet and they said 'thanks' and then silence. it had been over a week so last night I wrote asking if we could set up a meeting

they replied today
>unfortunately we have no spot for you

that school was my best bet at getting to study and work in the country I want to. now I have to decide if I want to stay in my familiar nightmare or go to a completely random local school where I'd have to make up three years of studying fucking Russian because my high school never had it and it's a required fucking subject

Your post is so bizarre to me. I'm the same age and have been working the past five years because I can't afford to go to college and my parents won't help pay. If your mom is willing to help you, GO TO COLLEGE. Seriously, I know you want a job but it's not worth it when you don't have a degree or skill that will get you a paycheck over $13. Find something for part-time work two days a week and go to school.

>buy anime and manga
Since you're already 23 you really shouldn't do this, if you start earning money try saving a majority of it before you start spending it on novelties. Buying anime is not worth it.

> Of those around half the women are employed, and only three men

This is something I've noticed too in my friend circle who, for reference, are all in their late 20s. All of the women are employed with varying degrees of success, pay for their own apartments and hobbies, etc. Half of my guy friends are equally successful, but half will straight up refuse to apply for in between jobs that they feel falls beneath them. They want a certain job that they are woefully unqualified for and would rather stay unemployed than apply for something mediocre (one of my friends hasn't worked for years now - his parents pay for all his expenses). Back in college professors would constantly give us speeches about "working your way up" and "not expecting your first job to be perfect job", and I remember being surprised that anyone actually thought like that.

As best as I can tell, some guys just expect everything to fall into their laps and are more willing to let their parents front the cost until then.

All my ex boyfriends were like that and in most of the cases it was a major factor of us breaking up. One of them would put two apps in then refuse to do any more for months because he wanted them to get back to him before he "wasted time" filling out others. Dude was unemoloyed between the ages of 20 and 25. Another only applied for positions WAY above his skill level because they offered a salary he felt he deserved for having a degree. He was unemployed for 3 years.
They always wanted pity for being unemployed while also being bitter that I was the bread winner in the relationship.Like asking for money then bring shitty about it because they were embarrassed. I tried getting them jobs at the retail store where if been busting my ass for years (I haveas nice job now thanks to my work history) but they'd never accept it because they deserved better.

Devil's advocate here, I think some of the girls who go on cgl or know the girls on cgl might be extra driven because of these expensive hobbies. Sure, some flip dresses and other things but it's certainly showing initiative.
All of my lolita friends earn big money to get that burando, and all of the guy friends in that circle are gamers, and so they would rather mooch off their families or the government and play games.
Whereas in another circle of friends I know all the guys are pretty normal and hardworking, and tend to have lazy girlfriends who think they can just depend on their family or boyfriends and do nothing.
I don't think it's a gender thing alone, I think it's an everything thing. How you were raised, what you want in life, what your friends do, where you live etc

When I was NEET for a year I went crazy, I couldn't enjoy anything because I felt like a worthless piece of shit who shouldn't be allowed to sit and watch anime whilst unemployed whilst people starve in other countries.
I also have a friend who has been NEET for about six years and all she does is go clubbing, watch anime and play games, she has a great life and the biggest stress in her life is just coming up for new reasons to refuse jobs or work schemes. The world is full of very different people.

I've been lucky with some Liz Lisa and Ank Rouge skirts, just double check every measurement on everything and get a few pairs of cute safety pants in various colors because things are going to be quite short no matter what you do. 85 to 90cm length on dresses usually works!

Whenever I'm looking at clothes in groups at facebook I tend to ask the seller if they think the clothing in question would fit someone in my height if they aren't very clear on the measurements.

I'm currently a NEET and I hate every single moment of it. I had a part time job from the time I was old enough to work right up until my senior year of college. It was a super shitty job with a lot of manual labor and I was always exhausted, and even got injured while on the clock. When I graduated school, I was so mentally exhausted I meant to take the summer off and apply places in the fall and then I got slammed with horrific cystic acne and I just quit life. I was depressed, became a recluse, and couldn't even enjoy my hobbies anymore because I was afraid to socialize and felt like I didn't deserve to do what I enjoyed because I was beign so lazy. It's so bizarre because I'm not working or going to school for the first time in my life. I've never had much down time and I feel so much guilt just mooching off of my parents for the last year. Every day I clean, cook dinner for them when I can, and do a good amount of yard work and home renovations to try to make up for being such a waste of space. I honestly hate every moment of this but I have such a fear of presenting myself in public until my skin clears up. My parents are worried about me because it's pretty obvious I no longer do any of my hobies or anything that I enjoy despite having all of the time in the world. I've also heard them speaking about wanting to kick me out of the house in a month or so because I'm a disappointment. I don't think I could do this for another year, let alone six, I just want clear skin and my life back.

You can do pretty well in retail if you find a good company and work hard. Without having a degree. My degree's done fuck all for me career-wise and I'd recommend learning a trade or experience working because I honestly think more employers care about that shit. There's no guarantee you'll end up with a career in what you did a degree in. Unless you have a set career you want and you know for an absolute fact you cannot have that career with a degree, then it may not be worth your time/money, especially if you don't want to go in the first place.

Anon, no one gives a shit about your skin. You might think you've got giant tumours on your face, nobody else think it's that bad.

Go see your doctor/a dermatologist. Chances are it can reduced or even cured by a change in skin care routine/a particular wash/antibiotics. If it came out of nowhere it can be made to go away too. Chances are all the stress you were under triggered it. It can be cured, don't worry.

You need to get a purpose to get your confidence back up. If you don't feel up to a job, volunteer. Ask in your local museum, or wildlife trust, or google volunteering in your local area. They'll jump at the chance of having you help, you can build up your skills/confidence, make new friends and not be under pressure. It'll be a good step in the right direction for you.

I don't think you really get how it works.
People that went straight into jobs from school do have a leg up on employability over those that did four years of an arty or useless degree, but from making those four years of work experience count. Doing time in retail 9-5 isn't helping you at all unless you're pushing for team leader and the manager positions and being active in that role. It's more than just outlasting other people in the job, you need to prove you have those skills and pick up small relevant qualifications and training.
A twenty three year old who knows the job market sucks isn't better than a 23 year old graduate unless you're talking about debt. You had better start reading into how to be the best at wherever you end up or else you'll be still living at home when those students finally pay their debt off.

Echoing what >>8765239 said, I find it amazing that everyone and their mother thinks they can just take some online programming courses and the jobs will just start rolling in. You could get an IT job before the mid 2000s by doing that, but by now LOTS of people know their way around computers. Once you have work experience you are definitely in the door, but good luck finding somewhere that will hire you with not only no experience but no degree (in any field).

Oh, man. Where do I even start.

I got to his house and we did our usual thing. We sat together out in his backyard- He plays animal crossing, while I drink beer and read the manga from his bookshelf.
After hanging out for an hour or so just joking around, I finally brought it up. I told him that there's something kind of silly that I have to confess.

>Started out slowly with, "So, you know how when we first met? And I told you that I was straight?"
>He literally slamed his DS shut and yelled, "Ah, fuck, I knew it!"

I covered my face and couldn't stop laughing at him for being so funny. We talked about it for a while, and everything went really well. I apologized for lying to him two years ago, and he said that it's fine. What's important is that I told him.

So we're both still laying down on the patio chairs as we talk it out. You know, the ones that let you recline that they have at pools? He gets up and stands right besides me and looks down at my face and says.

>"So, you've been crushing on me then you fuccboi?"

I was buzzed, and couldn't help popping the most unholy boner I've ever had in my life. Like it was so noticeable that I was dying of embarrassment on the inside. And I still can't believe it as I type this but he just said, "Woah," then put his hand down on my crotch to LEAN IN AND KISS ME ON THE FOREHEAD.

I was super flustered because I'm usually the type to initiate that kind of nonsense, but goodness.

Long story short, the truth is out with him, and we'll hang out again tomorrow and talk more about what we're feeling.

In the same boat, but I'm 26. I've had jobs since I was 16, but spent too long derping around in community college getting worthless degree. I still live at home, but pay 300 a month in rent (she won't let me pay more) and buy most of the groceries. I've since gotten my career shit in order, currently make 14.50 an hour for a so-so food service job, and am going to school for computer science. I think I have mostly my girlfriend to thank for it, because she helped me want to become a better person, and I transferred into Engineering, and then Computer Science. It won't be long now until I'm done, and I've already been offered a tutoring position, grader position, and/or a research assistant position. I'm also on track for a promotion at work. I know I'll have to leave home someday, but before I do, I want to be making enough that I can take care of myself and my mom, because things are rough and for the longest time, it was just me and her. I have a younger sister who also lives at home and at 18 has only had a single job for like 2 weeks, and I need to make sure they'll be able to make it on their own. Hopefully one of these jobs my mom is applying to will stick, because she's been out of work for a while.

So I guess while it's rude to assume people living at home in their 20s are leeches, people who have never had a job in their 20s probably need to examine themselves.

Also, keep in mind that the whole "move it when you're 18" thing is a relic of the rapid expansionist culture of the 50s.

Not many cultures encourage a necessary flee from your birth home. Nowadays everybody is acting like they're more mature for living on their own when they still are crammed into living with 5 people they don't know, and are still only scraping by for rent.

So you're getting sad and your boyfriend is complaining that he's sadder? That's really shitty.
He obviously will need time to feel better but that doesn't mean he should be treating you that way.

Take a look in the mirror or measure yourself- are you looking slimmer and healthier? If so, then you ARE losing fat, it's just being replaced by muscle. In that case it doesn't matter if you've gained some pounds, because the weight is coming from healthy muscles!

60 waist, 99cm hips. And I'm short as fuck so I am just a blob of ass and thighs (their circumference is almost half my height) then little-ish on top; 85cm tits look pitiful despite causing me blouse-gap and my bicep muscle is probably just assumed to be fat when my arms are bent. A lot of short sleeves don't fit me, all skirts and shorts ride up every two fucking minutes. All patterned tights are stretched to fuck. What happens when I stop eating altogether and exercise intensely? (Like 8 hours of non stop cardio in a day) I still bulk up in the legs like I've been squatting since I was born.

Having someone die, hell, commit suicide, can send people into some very strange reactions.

He's not being considerate, but considering his friend just committed suicide, it's a frickin tough situation.

Just remember a huge correlation of suicide is associated with close proximity to a friend's, a relative's, sometimes even a famous person's suicide. And unexpected deaths are shocking to go through for everyone, especially this manner of death.

Anon's reaction is totally warranted though. I'm not saying that her reaction is wrong and he should seek therapy, counseling, or a friend to deal with this in a healthy manner that doesn't diminish her own emotional needs. However, other anons piping in that 'omg anon's bf is an abusive asshole!' are overreacting like whoa and have no idea of the emotional turmoil he must be facing and what bizarre reactions you can have from people as they're trying to cope.

I really love stories of people suffering from depression who work themselves out of it.
Best of luck to you & keep going.

Boyfriend won't stop treating my cat like shit. Kicking her, hitting her hard on the head with the palm of his hand. I understand he comes from a different culture so they don't feel the same way about animals but man it gets annoying.

Being honest? He's Korean and I'm really into the whole K-Pop/K-Wave thing. I see other white people as boring and Korea as really cool.

He's never been abusive towards me. Only passive aggressive sometimes. And then it's very rarely and only a few occasions, but I do feel like those occasions are bad as it's a case of me doing absolutely nothing to him and him just venting on me by ignoring me or glaring.

I don't know who to feel more mad at, your boyfriend for being a piece of shit, or you for not actually caring. I hope someone calls animal services on you so your cat can be treated properly instead of living with an abusive jerk and an asshole who feels abuse is just a minor inconvenience.

Fuck that shit, you need to be very direct and demand that he stop it. Lose your cool, make a fuss. He'll probably stop doing it so that he doesn't have to deal with your wrath again, or maybe he just doesn't realize how much it bothers you. You need to nip that in the bud now before he hurts your cat.... kicking her the wrong way could seriously harm her not to mention the fact that she's learning to be afraid of people.

If I need to, I can save a little bit at a time for larger purchases.

Literally every time. It's like women just can't stop bragging like "haha, no matter how much of a fat ugly depressed loser I am, as long as I was born with a vagina I'm always 100% guaranteed to have someone reach out and help and care about me". I can't even imagine how easy being a woman must be.

Oh and you all don't even care about the guy who helps you. He goes out of his way to help her, bring her to a doctor, get her new meds, and support and encourage her every step of the way, but somehow she worked herself out of it all by herself and the guy is just a robot serving women like he's programmed to do and deserves no credit or gratitude.

Getting a college degree isn't a ticket to 'large wads of cash,' you have to work for it. College is a way of making connections, or for me, a stepping stone to grad school which can secure me a skillset needed for a job that is always available somewhere and is relatively secure.

You have to do the same in retail - but see, there, it's harder to go up the ladder. The college kids you're shittalking have a leg up on you because in college the smart ones would have been busy making connections to make the jump once they're out. You're just concerned about 'cash,' and I get it, you like cash. So do I. But you're not forward thinking at all because from your post, I don't see you aggressively putting yourself out there. You just float from job to job.

So have fun wasting time on your animu figures and working a 9-5 job with no goals. I don't give a fuck if your calling is retail, in fact good for you, but you're much more short-sighted than you claim to be since you don't seem to be seeking anything more in the future.

Because a large market for anime is sad teenage boys who get off on animated breasts because they're too pathetic to get a girl in real life.

Don't worry about lack of boobage anon, more then a handful is a waste anyway. Besides, big boobs are a pain in the ass to have and more trouble than they're worth. Be happy with your own natural size, because it's who you are, and I'm sure they suit you great!
