If you're male don't try to look like a girl and be cute because you will always look 100% ugly. Unless you Asian you can never past as a girl.
Either way if you lose weight your face and attitude will change. Trust me when I was skinny I had a sizzle shin and my face was 10/10 girls would dig me. Now that I am fat no girl would look at me, also became autistic. When you become skinny not only your body change but also your face and charactor. Try to get some excerise like walk a mile every morning or night try to hike on weekends. Eat less junk food. Now become the best self you can be. Work from the inside out.

We dance mostly hiphop/pop/dance, and those with frills is no good, so we don't dance on those. I don't know how to sing that well, so we mostly pair up with me on the piano and she sings.

use your skills and money to plan. Think on your success and what it allows you to do and not on what it restricts you from.

Gain a greater understanding of planning. Plan everything if you must and in that way find time for what you enjoy. When time is short taking a 10 minute break each day to plan out what you have time for is important.

I'm 21 and have failed a bunch of my college courses. I'll probably be there until 22, 4 months out from being 23, if I don't fail any more. I can't really give you any advice on talking to people IRL but honestly I would recommend making internet friends if you don't already. I'm friends with a guy who I met in 2010 on an online game still, despite not having met in the flesh. I tend to find online friends are more honest and generally better friends with those you meet in real life, obviously there are exceptions. You need to have pretty similar interests though to have any kind of lasting relationship outside of playing the same video game together.

Neither do I but I take in solace in that I can learn things by reading books and make things like stories or clothes. If you like reading, here's a big archive - https://mega.nz/#F!51Q0waSI!4Ut-eePQr9YSjHJJTQs7Ew!F5ZV0TSR

I feel you. If I continue on the route I'm on (because I'm intending to go to grad school, but we'll see how that goes), I'll be 30 when I'm done. Most would be 27ish. I also switched from an arts degree to a STEM major, so I'm also behind because of that. Shit sucks, but I decided I'd rather be a little less broke in the future.

Join an art club or participate in the local art scene if you have time. A STEM degree will be much more useful than an art degree. I have an art degree, worked as an artist, and now have a job that makes it easier to travel. I take advantage of the traveling to draw the local area and enjoy their alternative cultures (aka Lolita), but at the end of the day, this is a short-term career. When I'm done with it I'll go back to school to get a STEM degree so I can afford to live alone and support myself.

Original anon here. I agree with >>9246586

I moved to LA between graduating with my AA to where I am now since my school didn't offer winter start, but at least as a theater buff, I didn't like what I saw. I didn't fail down there at all (did end up having to stop because my headshots went out of date and couldn't afford new ones), but I met a lot of people who were in the arts and struggling. Despite getting plenty of roles and working a part time job, I would have been struggling if my dad wasn't so nice. I honestly don't know how people sleep in LA with the amount of jobs they have to hold to keep a roof over their head. Personally, I liked it better when I was just doing it for fun in the major city closest to me now and not trying to overly pursue it. Around here at least, there's lots of student films, the 48 Hour Film Festival, plays, etc.. It's less stressful and you might make a buck. Also, I found my acting classes outside of college to be of more help than the ones in school. They're usually smaller and filled with people who actually want to take it seriously (versus people who need elective credit). If you're anywhere near a major city, I definitely recommend doing it for fun, but don't get a degree out of it.

I can't really comment for drawing and the like because I suck at that shit.

>realize he's rubbing me down there gently
>I'm not comfortable, screaming "no! No!" In my head but nothing comes out

>he's my super close friend I don't want to lose him as a friend or make everything awkward
>he starts getting more into it, I'm trying to squeeze his hand as a gesture to stop but it's not working

At the very least, tell your boyfriend and confront your friend about how incredibly inappropriate that was. I think you should report him for sexual assault. And guess what?

This is not something that you encouraged and this is not something that is your fault. This person is not your friend and you have absolutely no obligation to be nice about this. He knew exactly what he was doing and he has no place in your life after doing this. What he did was sexual assault.

You don't HAVE to do anything. You don't have to tell your boyfriend, you don't have to have charges brought up against him. But if this continues to weight on your mind please seek professional help. This is a huge violation of trust and you deserve to have the resources to move past it.

Hey, >>9248622 here, and I wanted to add that I agree with >>9248637. YOU don't have to do anything you aren't comfortable with. I'm sorry for the forceful wording of my reply; I've been sexually assaulted myself by someone I thought was a friend when I was your age, and hearing about it happen to others causes me to have this kneejerk reaction in hopes that they'll handle it better than I did. I thought we could stay friends, but it just ate at me until I finally had to cut him out of my life. I came to find out later I was not the only young woman he'd done that to, and I still wonder today if had I spoken up about it, maybe the other girl(s) might not have had the same thing happen.

I encourage you to tell the authorities or to make clear to him how fucked up what he did was and get him out of your life. I encourage you to talk to someone about this, preferably a professional. But ultimately, do what you need to do for yourself.

Thanks for all the support guys.. I just feel like it's my fault because I didn't say anything and I know this is considered cheating on my boyfriend. I love my boyfriend so much and I would never do anything to hurt him and knowing I couldn't even speak up when another guy touched me like I was his makes my stomach hurt so much that I could puke. I think one part that really messed me up per se is about six months ago my boyfriend had a friend who's girlfriend got raped by a coworker, and they were both drunk however and it's just crazy to think I was talking all tall to my boyfriend like "I'd never let that happen to me!" "Id definitely report him no matter who it was!!" And now here I am, eating my words.

Now now, it wasn't some random dude. It was a really good "nice guy" friend who waited until she was sleeping to grab on to her goodies like the nice sociopath he is. If a girl is giving you the hints, obviously the best time to make your move is when she can't turn you down.

Yeah that sounds bad, but this is the only guy I've ever been comfortable to literally always be with anywhere.

Also I knew him before my boyfriend and have always felt safe around him, even the times I've hung out with him and he was drunk he always seemed like someone I could trust.

You should probably get it done professionally. It's way different since they know how to do it with the smallest amount of irritation possible and they usually get all the hair in one go. Also, moisturize really well after you wax the area and maybe powdering it a bit if you think your pants will chafe. Right after you get shaved you're supposed to wear loose fitting clothes, and it might help to get some powder or cream for the chaffing.

Regardless of what vibes you are getting from someone, you don't sexually assault them while they're sleeping. Putting your fingers in or on someone's genitalia without their permission is a form of sexual assault. I'm not sure what part of that you're not understanding. Mistaking her willingness to sleep in the same bed as sexual interest is a misunderstanding. Hell, trying to act on it in a more normal way (trying to kiss her, for example, while they were hanging out) is a misunderstanding. Sexually assaulting her in her sleep is sexual assault. Period.

You know, maybe you're right. Maybe this is a misunderstanding, yeah, it's shity to think he'd think I would cheat on my boyfriend, but maybe he just didn't completely understand. However, it was the fact that he just started doing it while I was asleep that bothered me, and still does. We've known each other for a long time and the fact that he would "start our potential sexual relationships" with him starting out with me asleep just doesn't sound right at all. But the fact that maybe this is all a misunderstanding does make me feel a little better, and now I feel like it might be a little easier to talk to him about it.. but yeah, even though I trusted him, sleeping with him must've gave him the wrong idea and I won't be doing it anymore. I didn't think of it as flirting I thought because there's such an age and maturity gap between us he wouldn't even see me as something sexual, especially since as I've mentioned a gazillion times it seems, I'm comfortable around him, and I act pretty childish on a day to day basis I thought he didn't even think of me that way.

This is the part that bothers me. We've never kissed before and next thing you know it's just this. I'd been with him the entire night and I knew he hadn't drunken anything or taken anything that would make him act weird and just out of the blue he was just super aggressive about everything. I don't know if he was just supressing everything and finally he snapped but this is the one thing that still bothers me even if it was a misunderstanding.

I hate seeing cosplays of characters I've done but done better, not because I'm not salty about the fact they're better, but I just get autistic over their fabric choices and little design flaws. I don't ever point it out to their faces and I don't even have the right since my costume was executed worse than theirs usually for the sake of time, but I can't help but feel like they're not doing the character justice by forgoing proper fabric choice/wig styling in favor of incredible sewing skill. Maybe I just have the wrong priorities, but it irks me to no end.

This was NOT a misunderstanding. The dude raped you. Christ, I can't believe you think this is in any way a misunderstanding or your fault.

Nobody, and I literally mean nobody, starts touching someone like that in their SLEEP because of 'miscommunication' or 'mixed signals'. This dude is a creep, and the sooner he's out of your life, the better.
I understand you feel close to him and want to trust him, but he took that trust you gave him and violated it in the worst way possible. There is literally never an excuse for sexual assault. Confront him, report him, cut him out of your life, whatever- But do not allow such a scumbag of a human being to remain in your life.

And seriously, shame on every anon who is supporting the 'misunderstanding' card. Are you all literally that stupid that you think starting a sexual encounter with a vulnerable individual while they're asleep is no big deal? Take your toxic bullshit elsewhere, you're just confusing a girl who is obviously struggling with a major violation of not only her physical space, but also her concept of trust and healthy relationships.

Remember that the stress of your degree might also have made you hate art. I got burnt out doing humanities subjects in high school and was two years into my STEM degree before I could enjoy reading for pleasure again. You often expect a degree to be doing what you love 24/7 but it can actually just put you off the subject altogether. If you just enjoy arts stuff rather than thinking you have the potential to seriously pursue it as a career, it can honestly be more fun as a hobby.

Realize that he may have once been a good friend. But that was then; clearly he either no longer respects or no longer understands you, possibly both; people change. Make it clear what he did was unacceptable and distance yourself, if not cut ties completely. Let him go cry to /r9k/ or whatever if he though you were leading him on, doesn't matter. It's up to you whether you bring this to the authorities or not; we only know as much about this as you've told us. But what is clear is that you must not give the slightest impression that what he did to you was or will ever be OK. I've never heard of one of these situations that was resolved by giving the benefit of the doubt, trying not to hurt anyone, or not talking to other people who care about you.

from a male perspective i have to disagree that its rape.
He obviously felt sexual tension and secretly hoped for something more those 10 times sleeping in the same bed. And i cant imagine this never crossed her mind.
Since they have known eachother and are comfortable sleeping in the same bed for a long time id say he probably expected her to be comfortable enough to say no or stop to his advance.
He most likely wanted her to wake up or thought she were woken up since he pursued it further. Or atleast hoped something would happen from this somehow. The noise she made wasnt a no so he thought it was ok but stopped right away once he realised she didnt want anything.
I dont think what he did is justified, he was probably really horny and didnt think straight.
But to call him a rapist and reporting him, potentially ruining his life over a misunderstanding is a bit harsh, especially since hes been good person otherwise for so long. People make mistakes.
Also desu, touching on bodyparts honestly isnt that big of a deal, if i woke up to a female friend stroking my dick gently id tell her to fuck off, probably ask what that was about and break off the friendship. Its not like its some holy totempole that holds all my worth and pride as a person. I just cant see how its traumatic, especially since youre both adults.

but i dont know any of them or wasnt there so i cant make a fair judgement.
should definitely talk to him about it and break off friendship tho.

I hope you stay single for the rest of your life because your outlook on consent is horrifying. Groping a sleeping person is at the very least sexual assualt, and pentrating her without her consent (which, since she was asleep as far as he knew, she could not give) is rape.

What he did was 100% not okay, if you've never had any romantic or sexual contact with a person you don't just fingerfuck them in their sleep like it's normal. But honestly, this girl is fucking dumb for sleeping in the same bed with some dude while she has a boyfriend. I can't believe her boyfriend would be okay with this, and I can completely understand why this "friend" thought she was interested. Still doesn't excuse his actions, she definitely needs to tell him that's not fucking okay but she probably won't because she's a little bitch who sleeps with other dudes while in a relationship.

I was dating a girl who I flowed really well with. We had a lot in common, our interactions were natural, and she was a qt who liked cosplaying. I broke up with her due to my own insecurities and the belief that no one could ever love me.

I think you're overreacting; we live in America, not a 3rd world country. Gays and trans people won't be lynched; as a matter of fact, most of trans people I know voted for Trump.

I don't see where this "Trump supporters will use violence to kill/silence minorities" comes from. If you google videos of "Minorities being attacked by Trump supporters", see how many results you get as opposed to "Trump supporters being attacked".

Also, checks and balances. Shit will be OK. Trump was just a reaction to political correctness and the increasing fear that American politicians are choosing the interests of the few over the many-- we won't actually become a monstrous violent shithole because people's perceptions won't change due to the person in the oval office.

Wanna talk about it, breh? I notice a lot of dudes with these type of problems tend to be very jealous, obsessive, and possessive as well. It's a strange form of love where you get off on putting your partner's happiness and well-being far above your own at all times.

His dad went harder than everyone and this year while I was a rabbit inside a large magician's hat that I wore around my torso, this kid was THE fucking red baron. Little costume along with a cardboard plane. The propellor on his plane rotated on its own. This kid blew everyone else away.

Things will be okay, buddy.

Just remember not to be caught up in negative feelings. Communicate with your partner, do productive actions rather than actively sabotage your relationship, and let them know that you want to be reassured that you were loved.

I'm sure your relationship will go better than mine once it happens. Remember, communicate with your partner and let them know what's troubling you; don't just let your misery fester. Never think of yourself of a burden, they decided to love you for a reason-- they'll support you through it all. It'll hurt them much more if you decide to be "considerate" and not involve them in your problems. When you two get into a relationship, it's a commitment to love and support each other.

Thank you. This weekend will be stress-shopping in all my favorite brand shops and a lot of purikura to fill the empty void.

And yeah, most of the world thinks America is a joke right now. That is sad because I love my country and know so many wonderful Americans, but now it's getting harder to defend them.

That does sound a lot nicer than where I'm from, infamous HB2 land with months of "Democrats want to let grown men into your daughter's school locker room!" commercials and calls for the "Rural white voters" to stand by Trump

I know how you feel. I didn't vote because I knew my SO would mock me and throw endless /pol/ memes at me for voting for Clinton. I gave trump a fair shot and read up on him but even putting his lack of professionalism and bigotry aside his supporters are all just so fucking gross. I'm just a white Jewish girl and I feel great disgust with knowing that trump supporters are a majority of this nation. I cant imagine how more marginalized people feel.

On topic .... my JET application is almost done. Maybe this time next year ill be in Japan. Although I would feel guilty running away when I'm not really one of the main the targets of all this hate.

America has an apocalypse/damnation fetish. everyone wants their enemies to be punished but they fear they are the ones who might get the shaft instead. it has been this way for a while but the post-Nazi, post-Hiroshima age of mass destruction has made everyone paranoid.

leave, heal and recuperate, get allies, and then return and fight for the younger versions of you. or stay in the more liberal area. but remaining in a place that may be dangerous to you, when you lack support, is the kind of situation that makes suicide seem logical. please try relocating first. come experience our moldy lolita conventions and low obesity rates and gay resort beaches and mind-your-own-businessness.

some is relevant, which i hope our janitor understands. politics has a big effect on an international subculture consumer hobby, and responses to an on-topic feel often stray a little bit. for hypothetical example, an OP's feels about her cat puking on her brand evolves into a discussion on brand cleaning (on topic!) and pet health (off-topic), but it flows from the on-topic subject (cat puke on brand) and does not distract from on-topic discussion or negatively impact the thread. small digressions in the name of sympathy or commiseration seems fine for a feels thread, even when the source of misery is political, just as the cat-puke-anon would not be directed to /an/ for having a feel brought on by pet ownership.

outright debate on political issues, not so much. that goes in /pol/.

I would hope so. But you're right, communication is key. And that's really all I want. Because of my awful, horrid self-image, I just want reassurance that I'm loved and that I'm wanted. So, thanks for the advice, and I hope everything goes well for you too.
