I work in a garage and am one of the few girls who work there. I get teased pretty mercilessly but it's all in good fun. Last week the guys found out about my lolita life and I was pretty mortified since I try to hide most of weird hobbies and dressing in frilly dresses would just add to the list of things I get teased about, but one of the other girls in the shop was really interested in it and it was surprisingly really nice. Not to hate, but everyone is pretty normie so I didn't think anyone would be interested let alone be kind of weirded out. Im giving her some old bodyline shit that I have to wear and hopefully if she's really interested I'll help her look for actually good pieces to make a coord. I just didn't expect anyone to be interested and it's kind of nice to talk about my hobbies with someone at work.

We're just barely making it by as it is, my husband just started being a lyft driver to bring in extra money, and I'm trying to start a business. My husband's family(aunts and uncles, not parents) thinks we should have another kid. Because I'm really going to have time to run a business by myself while raising two kids under 3 years old while my husband works multiple jobs to support his family.

Don't let ANYBODY make you think you're making the wrong choice for picking an education over having kids. I wish I had thought about it before having my kid.

This, so hard. I'm a freelancer who works an average of 14-16 hours a day and my husband leaves for work early and returns late. We could probably support a child financially, but there are days I'm so busy I can't even give my CATS any attention, never mind a child.

My husband's mom reaaaaaally wants grandkids. I think she should reaaaaallly have had more than one kid if grandbabies were part of her life dream. My mom wants grandkids but knows she'll probably get them from my siblings. Still, she tells me that I shouldn't disappoint my mother-in-law and I should probably have at least one kid. YEAH BECAUSE IT'S THAT EASY.

I'm also a STEM nerd and my husband and I do want kids, but I feel like I'm caught between several worlds with really opposing views. On the one hand the norm in both my and my husband's family is for the girls to start popping out kids as soon as they're into their twenties and not stop until they have at least three and can't afford more even with the extra welfare. Needless to say most of them don’t work and some of them don’t even have a stable SO. Fortunately my parents are supportive no matter what I choose to do but my inlaws are very much
>B-but anon when we were your age we already had two screaming toddlers and it was great!!!
>GRANBABBIES PLS NOW DO IT GO MAKE THE BABBIES

Then on the other hand the norm for my chosen field is for women to not even think about having children until they’re at least 35, because children distract from your career and if your career isn’t your #1 priority you might as well fuck off and be a barefoot and pregnant housewife. If course it’s perfectly acceptable for the men to have kids in their twenties. Unless their girlfriend/wife is also STEM, in which case she’s a bimbo who’s throwing her life away.

Then there’s my lolita comm where most girls are super childfree and talk mad shit about the one lolita mom my comm has. I honestly didn’t even realize she had a daughter until I started following her IG because she never takes her kid along to meetups or really does anything that could be considered annoying. They just seem to hate her for having a baby.

Of course I’m not going to let these people’s opinions dictate my life choices but it’s pretty annoying to basically be told there is no middle ground between being a dependent stay-at-home mom with no life outside of the family and being a Strong Independent Woman who can’t even think about having kids because then I’d be ruining feminism or something.

Everyone has opinions, anon. And most of them are shit.

Don't be disheartened, my MIL is an amazing woman (seriously, I love her to death, she is to me what my mother never has been or will be) and she had 2 kids at 24 and 26, fresh out of uni and just when she started her first job. She's since become a higher-up in a multinational bank and still had time to be with her family despite being the breadwinner.

You definitely can be that person and trust me, many people will acknowledge it and admire you. Myself included.

I just hate it how men are not even expected to give a shit about their children and if they do they're praised to high heavens for doing what a woman 'should' do every day or doing the most basic chores and a woman is supposed to do that AND work and that's 'normal'. Even coming from many women themselves.

If at said recent con, you talked directly to him and was talkative with you, then go for it. Try to form a group up and see if he's interested.

Diff anon than the one you're responding to but this is one of my biggest peeves and probably the most likely reason why I'll refuse to have children with my current partner.
Men get, and therefore expect, so much praise for doing ordinary things half decent women have been conditioned to do on the daily, like chores or cooking.
I mean, if mine takes a pic or posts a status about how he cooked ONE (bland and frankly unthoughtful) dinner for us both out of the entire month it gets all this praise. I'll never forget the day he boasted about "working a double" (ie two 4.5 hour serving shifts whereas I'm at work 9 hours usual) and "doing the laundry" and getting massive likes on his fb, only for me to come home and find him sleeping with the laundry stuffed into baskets and not even folded. He's super indignant if I criticize how he (poorly) does his half of chores, or if I suggest he should be more conscientious when dammit I should be praising him for working TWO JOBS (two part time serving jobs)...

Meanwhile if I post a dinner I'm proud of or talk about a really difficult week where I at least accomplished basic chores, it gets nothing as it's EXPECTED I do this shit and obvs I'm just bragging if I'm proud to have done it. I can't imagine the frustration I'd feel if I was keeping majority care after a pooping, crying, and demanding crotchfruit only to have my husband receive praise for taking it to the park and leaving it in the stroller for an hour on a nice day. Holy shit I'd be so jealous.

Feel you anon, mine's mentally sounds but he does have more friends than me and is generally well-liked by those who don't have to live with him. Therefore I would feel really outnumbered if I ever made a slight comment on those kinds of statuses or pictures he posts. It would just give his friends one more reason to assume I'm the nagging bitch who doesn't appreciate him enough.

Even his best friends have said shit to me about how he's a horribly lazy roommate, but those feelings went away of course because picking up after his messes and dealing with his domestic attitude isn't their problem anymore. Anyway, I know I sound like I'm nitpicking him apart (because he must be a nice person to have so many people who care about him, yes?) but I just don't like this aspect of peoples' personalities when they pretend they do more work than they do and expect more praise than they deserve.

That is unsafe and can make you guys sick. Bacteria can travel off of the carcass even if it's wrapped up and there's plenty of bacteria that doesn't die when frozen at average household freezer temperatures. For safety issues, she either needs to cut that out or get a separate freezer purely for her dead stuff. You also need to scrub out your freezer.

Thankfully he's not naive and thinks that shit like that won't happen and there won't be sacrifices to be made, or sexist and thinks that it's my job because I'm the woman.

Armadillos carry leprosy and they're pretty much the only way people contract it these days. Merely touching one can infect you, which is why you're not supposed to interact with them or their remains at all.

It can and does. All freezing does is prevent most bacteria from reproducing, this is why frozen foods still have expiration dates and why you generally don't refreeze food - any bacteria on the food multiplies whilst its thawing and you just end up freezing food that now has a doubled bacterial population.

Man. I'm so bummed. I just moved up here from my home state a month ago and went to my first local con today hoping to make some friends and enjoy the cosplay contest. I end up being ignored by all the other cosplayers at the con and found myself sitting in a corner by myself for most of the time.
And the contest was a bust. They didn't have the contestants parade around on stage or anything, just judged and then told the results in a tiny room filled with just the people who were judged. On top of that, all the contestants were basically children. I mean, I'm happy I got best advanced but at the same time I feel so dirty because almost everyone else in the contest was under the age of 18 and had very little experience in cosplay, much less competitive cosplay.
I just feel so lonely and dirty and this con left me super unenthused about cosplay or conventions and kinda has me questioning why I'm even doing any of this.
Oh and I didn't even get a certificate saying I placed. They just called me up, gave me some credit for the dealers room (which the vendors didn't know anything about btw) and sent me on my way. I wanted that fancy piece of paper with my name on it, dammit.

My own mother gets on my case regarding chores because I work from home. I work longer hours than my husband, get no weekends off, and rarely have holidays or evenings free (besides maybe an hour here and there to work on cosplay), but if I suggest that my husband do any cleaning around the house my mom jumps on me because "you're home all day so you should be the one doing all the chores." She also told me that marriage is a contract and part of that contract is providing your husband a child. It's super weird because she's usually like "rawr, fight the patriarchy" with this sort of stuff. At least she's stopped telling me I don't have a "real" job anymore.

My comm has a problem where basically all the admins and their super close friends will get together and say "we just happen to be wearing lolita while we hang out!!!" but then they tag all their outfit shots and candids with "lolita meet" on instagram like they don't know that we all follow them. When people raise a stink, they make posts about how it's "just friend get-togethers, we don't plan to wear lolita!" to make the people complaining look like paranoid idiots.

I don't even want to go to my comm's frilluminati meets because one of the admins that frequents them hates my guts, but I'm good friends with a few of the other admins and it kinda stings that they disappear off to what basically amounts to a private meet (even though they make a point to tell everyone it's NOT A MEET GUYS) every weekend while I'm sitting at home alone with my closet. There's a difference between someone thinking of you and asking if you would like to come (and being able to decline) and someone not even bothering to ask if you'd like to come.

Most of the people in my comm that complain aren't doing it to say that all 400+ people need to be invited. Jesus no. It's just that when you see a number of people you consider good friends hanging out and nobody even thought to invite you, you start to wonder if it's something personal.

I don't think we're in the same community. Like I said we don't say they're meets unless they're public, and we don't try to defend ourselves by saying it wasn't planned.

Not in your comm (my comm is only like 30 people with maybe 5 people usually turning up to meets), but this part kinda jumped out at me as being a little cringey and narcissistic. Maybe it's just hyperbole since this is the feels thread after all.

Anyway, if you're friends with the other admins, why not try organizing a small not-a-meet yourself, just grab ice cream in lolita or something. Best case scenario, when your friend admins organise their not-a-meets, they'll feel obliged to return the gesture and extend an invite to you. Worst case scenario, everybody, even your friend admins, refuses to meet up with you, in which case it's time for some deep soul-searching and see if the issue lies in you/you personality, but hey, at least you found the real problem of why you're not getting invited to things.

Because everyone has a friend limit and you've reached yours, right? I've never understood this shit. What about giving someone a chance? What the hell is the point of being in a comm only to be in certain cliques. Why can't everyone hang out at some point granted the schedules line up?

>>9041576
My comm seems to have a top tier group that always hangs out in full lolita coords, but I don't think they call those meets, they usually say they went to hang out with their friends... cause they're all besties and seem pretty inseparable at meets.
I don't think they're stuck up or anything but the requirement to be a part of their group is to have a GINORMOUS wardrobe. Which explains why they're always wearing coords. They're all just really serious lifestylers and have jobs that accommodate their style. In other words, really lucky bitches. And I'm sure their schedules all line up and every time they hang it's a blast and they always just lounge around in casual lolita while posting old coord pics to whatever social media shit.

I guess someday I'll have a big enough wardrobe and then I'll be one of the cool kids. They give me something to aspire to.

I'm not sure why you think people who literally do not know another person would invite them. Does your comm not have public meets?

There's a major difference between that and people who I either don't know or don't like for whatever reason.

NAYRT but in my case, the comm hardly has public meet ups any more. It's either an open tea party at some anime con once or twice a year or "just friends hanging out".

I wish my comm had less private meets and more bigger public meets, but as soon as some unwanted people join the meet collapses. It sucks because if the meet had the time to grow big enough then they would only be a small fraction and their presence would be tolerable, but because they put themselves on going first it usually just ends up being cancelled.

Have you considered furthering your friendship with the girls so they will think to invite you to an event? What's stopping you from hosting meets? What's stopping you from befriending the newbies and having your own not-a-meets? You just want to sit with the cool kids with the big wardrobes and efame, but you can't just sit there and look pretty and hope that the cool kids will fawn over your beauty and grace - what makes you stand out so much that they'll invite you, instead of the other newbies?

Almost all my friends are married or in serious relationships any more.

So, not only do I barely see them. But, when I do see them, they have to drag their SO along.

Their SOs are fine or whatever, but I they are not who I want to hang out with. I want to hang out with my best friends. It's especially bad when it's something their SO is not at all interested in too, but they come along for whatever reason so they can sit on their phone and contribute nothing.

I appreciate them taking pictures, but unless they're group photos I think posting individual shots and portraits before showing the person is bad form. I always send mine through PM and I ask permission if I want to post them.

But yeah, I look bloated and nasty and I needed to be hit with about 40 pounds of photoshop to have looked decent. Now I'm just hoping they'll be buried in the comm page and nobody gets a vendetta in the future. And I feel like there's never a tactful way to ask to have them taken down.

Congrats, you're assumptions are wrong as always because you just repeat the same things other anons say.

I have a full time job and I'm almost 30.
Also, I know people that worked really hard to get a degree and are trying to pay off debt but still can't get a job in their field. I don't know where you live but in my country it's extremely competitive to get a job and does in fact involve luck of the draw.

I actually did get lucky and now I have a job I enjoy and it pays well and I'm moving up pretty fast in the company. But I've been trying to get that done for a decade and it wasn't happening elsewhere because other people would get picked over me. A guy that got into a fist fight with a customer got promoted over me once. It can be pretty bad. There was literally no reason to promote that guy (he even got suspended w/o pay) but I guess they just forgave that?

I'm sorry if that's not luck then what is it?
Like what hard work got him out of that?

I'm offended that you think everyone who has a good job got it by luck. I graduated during a recession and there were literally no jobs in my field for someone with my level of experience. So I worked retail to pay the bills, started my own business and self-taught myself new skills that put me in a more lucrative field. A few years later after building a strong resume I was able to land a high paying job at a company.

Your co-worker was probably promoted over you because he took credit for his accomplishments while you're over there attributing it to luck. Give yourself some credit that you managed to land a job and keep it in a competitive market.

Accomplishments and working hard are great. But they are FAR from a guarantee to get you ahead.

You could be the best seller in your dept, you know more than everyone, you cinched up a deal with a reluctant client....

Get passed over because of something the boss perceives. Not even true facts...but something they PERCEIVE to be true.

I always cosplay at least one big costume at this con I go to, usually something with a complicated costume and/or a big prop. This year, work was ridiculous and I just didn't have the time, so instead I did two simple costumes. I finished my costumes almost a week before the con and dealt with practically none of that typical con anxiety. Best cosplay decision I've made in a long while. Sure, I didn't get a lot of pictures taken, but the lack of stress was totally worth it. I feel so good.

Hopefully i feel better and i found way better friends than her ugly ass, because no one wanted to be her friend in reality. Hopefully people realize unless they are really stupid their shit abusive behaviours.
Also, today i saw on tumblr some posts about Bpd sufferers (or supposed ones), i felt really really upset because we neurotypical (i'm not even one according to some because aspies aren't but are easy prey for cluster B personalities) don't understand why they are like this, we have to love them and be always with them even if they are too crazy.

the tumblr BPD community honestly needs to be gassed, they're constantly harping on about how BPD suffers ~aren't abusive~ and ~don't mean to hurt anybody~.

As a guy, if a guy is interested in you romantically, everything you do that doesn't cross into his personal "oh, fuck, no" zone will be sexy to him. Fetishes are just ice cream and frosting on top of the sexy cake.

Also it's worth pointing out that as stereotypical as it sounds, guys aren't usually friends with girls for no reason. There's about an 80% chance that he's a friend to get closer to you or one of your friends. The exceptions usually involve sisters, spouses, or friend's girlfriends/spouses.

I'm not saying that every interaction that a guy has with a girl is because he's trying to get into your pants. What I am saying is that if a guy brings himself into your life he is probably trying to get into someone's pants. And just because he's trying to lay you or your friend doesn't mean that a genuine friendship cannot develop.

Think about all the guys that associate or have associated with your circle of friends. How many came into the group, were friendly, hung out a few times and then just vanished? How many started dating one of the other girls? How many are still involved?

The exceptions to this is guys who don't inject themselves into your life, but who instead have your life injected upon them. These are the guys who have been seeing one of the girls for a while, or the brother who moved back home and lives with his younger, college-aged sister and parents.

Want to know if a guy is trying to get into bed? While there are always exceptions, a good rule of thumb is to just ask yourself if you and your group came to him or if he came to your group.

The comic fandom is especially bad because they actively make up stuff and claim that it's "actually canon" because comic books tend to have kind of fluid canon. So suddenly it turns into "well this character is actually really dark so you can't cosplay them" when the character is (part) Roma and usually drawn pretty damn white or something like that.

I totally agree with you here. I also hate how these people want to change the world and only focus on fiction instead of actual issues happening in real life.

The worst are when cons go full-on SJW, like Shuto con. The con chair has publicly lost her shit over people using the term "weeb trash" in a self-depreciating manner. The con itself has a "safe space policy" that is just waiting to be abused by idiots. I know I'll never run a panel there because I know someone would find something stupid to get upset about.

see, i'm in a similar situation except it's 6 years for me and no one said anything about it (no one really knows besides my internet friends).

he tried to break up with me over some stupid ass shit and even brought up the fact that i'm such a big fan of this character. like??? i'm sucking your 3d dick, chill.

its no coincidence this character is his least favorite.

This actually happened years ago, but it was brought up recently so it's been on my mind
>My last college spring break is coming up, not into parties, just weeb stuff, so invite a bunch of high school friends who will be back in our hometown at the same time to an anime marathon like we used to have in high school
>Gonna marathon this series I LOVE and I think the others will enjoy
>Get snacks and stuff, sent out cute invites, friends are gonna come!! I'm super excited until everyone cancels last minute
>Reasoning varies from "I'm gonna get my hair cut" to "I need to do errands"
>We're all far enough out of the weeb stage, maybe this was just too weeby for them, that's okay, I understand
>Pretty hurt that they waited until the last minute though
>Errand friend decides at the last SECOND that "oh, I suppose I can come now, but let's go out for lunch first"
>…which turns into hours of chatting. I'm ok with this, the main purpose of the day was actually just to hang out with friends
>End up going back to my place, have time to watch a few episodes
>Friend watches about a half ep before starting to chat about random stuff with me.
>Ok, I really wanted my friends to check this series out, but this is fine
>A few episodes in, friend stops chatting, glances at the screen and says, "this series doesn't make any sense. Blehhhh."
>MAYBE IF YOU ACTUALLY WATCHED IT, IT WOULD
>Still, a nice day overall. I sting a bit from the other last minute cancels, but life happens.

I've been keeping them at arm's length and they've definitely matured since the name-calling, but I probably shouldn't have accepted them back. However, plastering on a smile and being kind makes me feel like some sort of benevolent god. The power trip is incredible. Perhaps I am as awful a person as they made me out to be.

It's getting a little obnoxious. A year or so ago two friends of mine went as Midnighter and Apollo, who are a gay couple in the comics, but the two friends in costume as them aren't. They got some flak from some people for going as a gay couple but not being gay as if it were some kind of joke.

Earlier this year my sister went as Frisk from Undertale, and if this wasn't already an easy target got a bunch of shit from the other undertale people for saying "who gives a shit" in response to someone asking her what she thought of having a trans character as a main character in a game.

My only experience was talking to someone who was also Frisk, but when I pointed to my friend to "check out her costume!" they got super upset for misgendering them, and it wasn't something i had ever heard before and quite frankly it's fucking ludicrous that you expect me to know this bullshit term that sounds like something you just made up.

My parents weren't super supportive of me either. I started my senior of high school when i went to two cons that year which was fun, but didn't get into cosplay for real until college.

Made a lot of friends, and eventually my mom warmed up to it (Dad was an early adopter of video games and my uncle at one point ran a few small video stores, which were the only ways to get anime back in the day so he knew what it was from the get go). I've been done with school for a year, and i'm still going at it.

This dude sounds like he's playing with you or doesn't know what he wants, anon. Tells you he loves you in a romantic way when you're not even dating then says you're paranoid for acknowledging the bad vibes that come from him rooming and hanging out with an ex. I know it's hard to cut this kind of thing out but unless he gets some maturity and stops being a dick it's not going to go well for you or your feelings.

I just need to stop being a fat junkfood eating american and its all good.

I could care less if someone doesn't like me and especially in a case where the feeling is mutual, but goddamn what's up with the need to police who your friend hangs out with and giving them hell for it when they don't want to break off a friendship just 'cause their ex is insecure of everyone that talks with them. I've kept my mouth shut about this to everyone except said friend because I know that if I did anything it'd only come back to bite her in the ass but fuck I don't have the patience to deal with this level of bullshit. Whatever happened to the golden rule of just ignoring the friends of your friends that you dislike.

Crafting the stuff has always been 80% of the fun of cosplaying and I've never liked the idea of buying costumes.

I suggest to just date him and not being in a relationship to see if you get attracted, if not just good friends. Usually it's rare to get attracted if they aren't your type in my opinion, i never get attracted with someone that isn't my type, bear in mind i rarely get attracted to someone sexually and romantically. I never get in love and attracted as well if at the first times i found him not my type.

I hope to not sound like an ass but if he earns his money he should be free to spend his money as he wants, better you find a job or something to earn money also online instead to ask him money, don't dream to have the perfect bf what would buy you everything, i hate when girls do this and i'm a girl, i buy my own stuff with my money and not begging any guy to buy me shit.
