>Also very sheltered, far away from everyone, and no idea how to talk to people

Male NEETs do more to benefit society than the vast majority of people who work, why? Because more men dropping out of society will:

1) Reduce hypergamy, in other words reduce the insanely over-priced cost of pussy, and lower women's extremely entitled attitudes
2) Reduce feminism
3) Fix the extremely broken marriage/divorce laws, where women are rewarded for divorce and ruining men's entire lives
4) Raise wages

I'm a NEET and I feel like a million bucks, I lift weights almost every day, eat healthy, and have all the free time in the world. The only downside is that it's literally impossible for me to get a girlfriend/wife, even if I had 10/10 looks and a great "personality".

I am well aware that all women are prostitutes, and I need money to afford them. I said that in my first post that even if I had 10/10 looks and a """great personality""" (which we all know is what women value most), I wouldn't be able to get a girlfriend/wife because I have no money.

Any job I could get wouldn't pay enough anyway.

Partly because women entered the workforce, and also voted to import third-world immigrants, both of which have lowered wages by creating a surplus of labor.

All I want is to be friends with another girl who really gets me. I want to wear lolita together, spend lazy afternoons drinking tea, be able to talk about anything, give each other advice, and help each other with cute arts and crafts. Doing all of these things by myself all of the time feels lonely. All of my male friends end up leaving me once they realize they're never going to get in my bloomers, and I haven't been able to form a connection beyond shallow niceties with any of the gulls I've talked to.

I think I'm hoping for too much, because the chances of finding somebody who shares my interests and is willing to connect with a literal autist like me are very slim. I have so many acquaintances but no real connections, and it's very disheartening.

Same. But I trust nobody, so I don't let people get to know much about me.

People tend to hate who I am behind the niceties. I like many things that freak people out, and have problems with cognitive dissonance (I can be empathetic AND want to bully people at the same time, it's a little fucked up).

I'm more open-minded than many people are comfortable with, mostly because I just don't care. I can be a pretty morbid person. I think all of that puts people off.

It's hard to even maintain any sort of online relationship too, since I have to leave things about me out of the conversation. If I let certain things slip, if they went looking, people would find out immediately who I was. My looks and interests stand out, so when put together, I think I may be the only person left in the pool to guess from.

I think I'm asking/hoping for too much as well. I also live farther away from any large comms, so no hope of finding anyone within physical contact range who isn't an ita. FML

>> No.9547013

>>9546995
I'm sorry that's the case anon. I empathize with you. I have a hard time trusting people and I feel like I might come off as too cold because I keep information vague, so I tend to overcompensate by being overly nice and agreeable... Which probably just puts them off more.

It doesn't help that I'm super socially inept and once a conversation has stagnated or somebody hasn't responded to me for over a week, I can't bring myself to liven things up again. I'm too afraid that I'll come off as clingy or bothersome. All of my online relationships fall through the cracks because of this.

I guess I was destined to be a lonelita forever. RIP in peace.

Doesn't matter how ugly you are as a female, with a change of attitude there's still tons of thirsty men ready to financially take care of you, have sex with you, pay you money for sex, give you attention, whatever you want.

This is why there's so many MtF trannies, they want to live on easy mode too. (FtM are just delusional and believe they'll be respected more if they were a man)

Too bad neither of these actually works when you're a tranny.

Yeah its easier for girls to find a partner, but on the flip side they're predisposed to chasing the same high value males who take advantage of them. Females are also valued primarily on looks, whereas an ugly man can be sucessful sexually with confidence, status, resources, ect. Not to mention female sexual market value goes down as they age, where as mens goes up. Neither gender has it better, we're all humans doomed to suffer and perish on this cursed rock.

As a fellow kamen rider cosplayer, cosplaying obscure characters is the best. Tokusatsu fans are kinda rare at cons so when one sees you cosplay kamen rider they will absolutely flip their shit over excitement. Plus its much better to meet a handful of super cool people who are fans of the same shit you are into, than meeting a billion people you cant even chat with because you dont actually enjoy the character youre cosplaying.

I know anyone that knows me irl will 100% be able to identify me from this, but I'm so fed up I can't find it in myself to care anymore. Blog post incoming.

I'm 18. Two months ago, my family and I were evicted from the home I grew up in, and since then my life has been spiraling out of control. One of my friends from my comm who I had VERY recently gotten closer with offered to let me stay in her home for a set amount of time. Me, her and one other girl from our comm were close "besties" or whatever you want to call it, but the other girl was convinced I was trying to steal her husband or something? It kind of came out of nowhere, but I hadn't been that close to anyone besides my abusive, recently ex boyfriend. So there was a huge fallout and now neither of them want anything to do with me, and I'm not very comfortable going to events anymore, so I think I'm losing touch with my community.

Going back to my home situation, I made sure not to stay at anyone's home that offered help more than a week at a time as to not impose, so I was already on my way out of their home by this time, though I had planned to go back. Obviously, I decided not to, so I was sleeping on a roof of a parking garage for a couple days. During this time I was told a very close family friend died of a heroin overdose. I learned my parents were getting divorced when my dad's new girlfriend let me stay at her home, and I was honestly relieved since they were both physically abusive towards eachother and fed off of eachother's drug addictions. However, after their separation my mom spent every penny in their joint bank account and then some; when we got the new apartment a couple weeks ago, we were stuck paying way more than we should have on top of the financial shithole we were already in. I'm stuck paying two shares of rent out of three because my boyfriend had said he would move in and decided not to last minute.

Wow, this is long. Continued.

During this whole time, my boyfriend was guilting me for bringing so much stress in his life on top of being abusive to begin with. I couldn't even tell him when my close friend died because at that point he had made it clear that I was not allowed to bring any more disasters in his life. I don't blame him, even if some of what's happening isn't directly my fault, I was a huge stressor for him. I just wish he would have handled it in another way than tearing me down and saying the most hurtful things he could think of.

I found out he's been lying to me about something major, on top of other issues (including the way he speaks to me) so I finally took everyone's advice and actually said something instead of saying sorry for shit I know isn't my fault. After 2 years, we broke up three days ago.

This whole while, I've lost so much weight. It's so hard to eat now. I can't even keep track of how much I lost, but it's upwards of 40 pounds. I throw up all the time without making myself, but it's gotten kind of addicting to the point where I find myself considering forcing it. I haven't done it, but it scares me that I want to. I used to be so chubby and I love how I look now, but I'm still not completely happy with it. All that said, I really wish I had a bigger apetite. Not eating fucking sucks, I used to love food and now when I think about most foods I feel nauseous, much less SEEING and SMELLING food.

My life is out of control and I know a lot of it is my fault but I don't know if it's repairable. I've been seriously considering suicide, but I don't want my ex-boyfriend to kill himself. He always said if I did he would too, and I might be full of myself for thinking he still might after we're broken up or that he would have even done it to begin with, but I still love him so much. I still think about him and want him to be happy, I don't want to be the cause of his death.

I honestly think I'm just very depressed and my situation isn't as bad as most peoples', but it just feels like everything is crashing down around me.

And for sure, I know losing them was for the best. I should have guessed when I heard them gossiping and talking shit about other people that I was no exception. I was already the odd one out, I should have seen it coming. I just wish I never got close to them to begin with.

And it was certainly stupid. She's a very jealous person and read way too much into things and I had to pay for it. I know she lurks here, so I'm embarrassed to even say anything, but I'm so sick of everything going on I don't care what she thinks of me anymore.

Its a blogpost.

Basically it severely fucked up my hormones. I normally, even on carbs and sugar could go a good while without eating. It got to the point where ibwas getting such bad blood sugar crashes that some juice or crackers wasnt cutting it. I was getting faint and light-headed at work. Like I was eating huge portions and even that wasnt helping. For awhile I tried calorie cutting, did it before and dropped 60lbs that way. It did nothing. I also started getting severe anxiety issues out of nowhere. Shaking, heart palpitations, angry at everything. My hair was falling out in clumps. I ended up quitting the pills i was taking cold turkey and i got back on what i used to take and had no issues aside low libido which is why i switched. After a few days of quitting, the hunger and anxiety was largely subsided. The weight gain was probably caused by a lot of things, i probably had metabolic disorder going on or pre-diabetes from what i was eating. It runs in my family though, both types. The pills i was on made everything worse and not manageable. Cutting the carbs and sugar out has pretty much resolved a lot of my issues. I'll probably be sticking to eating this way permanantly. I cant tolerate bread or sugar anymore if I do have it.

I tried really looking into the problems, but there's very little research into how different hormone levels in bc effect people differently. My doctor was just like, exercise. But nothing outside changing my diet fixed the problems and now the weight is coming off.

It could fuck up your teeth and cause swelling in the face. It can also cause a certain nerve in your stomach to stop working over time. Your digestive system stops giving the working signal that let's us poop normally. You'll experience days at a time without a bowel movement, and in some cases end up relying on laxatives to rid yourself of pain. It can also cause an imbalance in your body's chemistry alongside dehydration which can cause a heart attack. The more likely outcome is your blood pressure suddenly started dropping, and without intervention, you start going into a coma because your body can't maintain it's cardiovascular function. However, it could take years for these sorts of things to happen. It's your call. You could be fine, you could not be fine.

I figured it was that sort of thing. I didn't know it could do all that, but I was sure it could be a danger to my life long term. I'd love to tell myself I wouldn't let it get that far, but that's what everyone who got addicted to anything has said, so for now I think it'd be best for me to at least try to fight the urge to make myself do it.

That said, I throw up involuntarily two, maybe three times a week. Obviously there's a root problem causing it that needs to be addressed, but as far as effects from that, am I in danger in any ways similar to what was described here and >>9548726 >>9548745 ?

You are unfortunately. Like I said, it could take many years before anything bad happens. See, in my case, I have perfect teeth, no gastric reflex, and never had swelling. I experience bowel and cardiovascular issues. Some people may not have bowel issues, some may never have issues with their heart. You may get any combination long term. Some people have spontaneous throat rupture related to it and die even after stopping! (That's very, very rare though.)

You definitely want to fight the urge. Unfortunately, it is sort of the thing it's hard to care until it actually starts to happen. I didn't stop until I almost went into a coma. That made me realize I was going to die if I continued. You want to address it, and just be sure to brush your teeth afterward, drink plenty of water, and that sort of thing. Make sure to keep sports drinks around, some little snacks such as bananas, and stay hydrated. Try your best to take care of yourself even while being unhealthy. Remember to take a multivitamin that has your minerals such as magnesium, potassium, and possibly even iodine. At some point, you should address the involuntary puking. You don't have to tell them you are making yourself at other times, but see about getting that under control. It can damage you. I'm not going to attack you for doing it, but be careful. Also, it's always better if you can not do it.

When I was with my ex he had a mindset that if I wasn't going to eat much at all, I should only eat things good for me, but I was never able to keep the things he let me eat down so I would sneak things like Gatorade because my mom had told me I should drink small amounts of watered down energy drinks to make sure I don't pass out often. It was obviously a choice weighed more heavily on my relationships with those people when I went with or without it, but now that I'm more oriented towards not dying and stuff, do drinks like that actually help or do they do more harm?

Well, the sugar is more to help with your blood sugar crashing and such. When you feel real dizzy, sugar or quick energy is sometime what the body needs. There's also the small amounts of potassium and whatnot that comes with it. I mean, I wouldn't constantly down sugary drinks, but they have their purpose. Sometimes your body needs energy, and it needs energy quick. The best choice would be advice from a legit doctor, not the experiences of someone on /cgl/.

Your ex is mostly wrong.

Unfortunately eating is not a perfect science because humans aren't perfect. You need fats, sugars, complex carbs, and protein to live, as well as certain vitamins and minerals. How you obtain them is up to you really. Some foods have better ratios than others.

That said, people assume sugar=evil. Sugar in small amounts regularly, or (depending on who you ask) large amounts infrequently, is fine because it's a quick energy source for your body. It enters your metabolism fast and burns out fast too. So Gatorade provides some salts and nutrients, and also sugars that boost your energy. Fluid loss is extremely dangerous from vomiting/purging behaviors and it's important to supplement with not only the electrolytes but the sugars too to help maintain nutrition.

If you have the chance, a nutritionist or dietitian consultation isn't a bad idea. They aren't gonna lock you up for considering voluntary barfing, and they can give you a better answer than anyone on here.

>tldr "that's pure sugar don't drink it" or "only eat healthy foods and you will be healthy" are both mostly bullshit. It's possible to have some liquid sugars on occasion and plenty of "healthy foods" aren't good in excess.

I appreciate the advice, but with all my said problems inhibiting my ability to live, you think I haven't tried that? I got treatment when I was younger and legally obligated to be given it, now shit's expensive and it's a lot easier said than done to "get help." Sure, there are programs, but I've been stuck on waiting lists for longer than it's been since shit got really bad.

Like I said, thank you, I know when people tell me "just get professional help" they really think that's the right answer, but it's a lot easier said than done.

However, moreso than my inability to get immediate treatment, I think there is something to gain from maybe considering an alternative to venting to strangers on the internet. I definitely love /cgl/ as a form of escapism from my real issues, but maybe I should be out trying harder to improve my life than complaining to people about it online.

Ah, it's a feels thread. It happens.

I'd just wear pretty dresses. If people accuse you of age play then just tell them you like fancy dress. The association with trying to convey the look of a child kills me. Do you wear your hair in pig tails? One thing that may help is avoiding the pig tail type styles which most sadly associate only with young children. The best way I'd fight that is tell people it's not based off children, but it conveys the way women use to dress way back when. Way back in the day, children wore the more demure dresses with lavish styles reserved for grown woman. There's the fact they remind people of the porcelain dolls, but those dolls were generally wearing adult clothing. Tell them to picture a frivolous ball, not a nursery. I've never been reminded of children when I see lolita fashion.

I'm really happy with my body type and appearance out of lolita right now (92cm bust, 63cm waist, face looks cute) so I don't really fancy dieting down even if it's possible because I'm naturally busty and losing enough weight to reach 84cm would probably make my cheeks look hollow (I've just been looking through photos from a couple of years ago when I was thinner and I really don't like the way I looked). I just feel depressed, I wish I could just sell the smaller dress and change my outfit but it's too late to put another outfit together and I'd probably make a loss even if I sold.

Give them to any lolita you know and like enough for it or leave your family the proper instructions to put them up for auction at lacemarket or something.
If you want your family to have some extra money leave them the values of the dresses as well. Best to do all of this in a note they can verify as being yours if you only have until tonight.

Good luck, anon, whatever your final decision may be. I hope you find peace.

Thank you for your kind words, I wish more people were like you. I intend to take on your advice and engage with my comm more despite my small wardrobe, I'm friends with the mod too at least and she's very supportive too, which will make it easier.

I don't think less then 24 hours is enough time to guarantee your dresses end up where you want them. Generally you have to write out a will or hope your family reads your note. Random people can't just say, "Oh, hey, this note I was given says I get to have this," nor will a suicide note be treated as a legit will. Your family will decide what to do with your dresses. Do you trust them to take the time to follow what you have written? Or will they just toss it to deal with aftermath as quickly as possible since they are mourning. Usually the latter happens without a will.

Adding to >>9549116, I don't even say all that meaning to be a douche. It just seems you are very concerned about your dresses. Perhaps you should seek out a written will and then see how you feel after that is done. You may still feel like killing yourself, you may not. Am I trying to talk you out? Yes. However, I'm being dead serious that you need a legal will to guarantee your possessions are not tossed. It might be worth looking into. It can take a good day or two, or longer, to get a will written out.

You should maybe wait until you actually have HIV if that's the big issue. I mean, HIV sucks. I can't rightly tell you if that's the right or wrong choice. However, if the HIV is main fear leading to suicidal thinking, it's at least worthwhile to wait until you know you actually have it. The rape itself is harder to address other then that certainly weighs on someone.

Unfortunately a lot of them are themed and very closely matching to that specific dress, which I bought because it had a specific motif you don't see that often, so it's a bit of an oddball in my wardrobe.

>>9549092
It's probably harmless and she'll get over it herself if she has positive outside influences. If anything, trying to restrict or belittle her interests will make it worse, as she'll find a load of fujoshi weeb friends to share her enthusiasm with, end up with a social circle that revolves around fandoms, and stay a shameless yaoi fangirl weeb forever. Making generalisations based on my own experiences and that of friends I have here. I had an obsessive yaoi phase in high school and read hundreds and hundreds of fanfic and manga and watched a lot of trashy fanservice anime, but I got bored of it. Nowadays I just read the odd thing from a favourite ship and look for doujin fap material occasionally and that's it. Whereas acquaintances I have with a lot of fandom friends sperg out about their "husbandos" and share porn on Facebook accounts with all their normie friends on and it's so tacky.

What >>9549119 said about PrEP is absolutely right, HIV is extremely (and fairly cheaply) treatable these days if you catch it early and not a death sentence or even something you're likely to pass on to a partner as long as you take those two pills a day. I can't express feelings about how horrible it must have been to be raped, but worrying about HIV isn't a reason to kill yourself.

Tried calling a hotline a couple weeks ago and they hung up on me, hah. It *seemed* like an accident but came off as "Wow, not even someone TRAINED to listen to me can handle me, I really am insufferable."

I'll consider it though.

I'm not prescribed anything anymore, and I'm certain it'll kill me; it's Valium. That makes the decision weigh on me more though, I think. I've tried to OD on psych meds when I was prescribed, and obviously failed, so I think if that's all I had I would have downed them by now since it doesn't seem as heavy a decision since I only might die.

After the diet change, I'm feeling much better. Honestly, I haven't felt this good since I was a teenager. I need to go back for a checkup and I might get more bloodwork done to see what changes have happened in my system after this. Just from my own observation though, I feel 1000% better.

I don't know what area of the world they live in, but 24 U.S. states have made it a punishable offense to not disclose an HIV-positive status before having sex. Therefore, it can be difficult finding a partner. That aside, it's a painful way to die. It's also a reminder. I sincerely hope they find the will to stay alive, and find support to vent their feelings. I hope they are alive long enough to heal emotionally. It is important though to realize HIV is a death sentence, and to word it otherwise is sugarcoating the truth. It doesn't mean that the life in-between isn't worth living.

Hey anon, just in case you haven't necked yourself yet. I just got a HIV test and I'd look up the rates of transfer if I were you.

I had unprotected sex with a dude and I was freaking out about having HIV. Went to get the test and the doctor was showing me the chances of transfer for different scenarios to chill me out. Even if he was HIV positive there's still quite a large chance you didn't actually contract it, some quick googling says it could be as low as 0.3%. Hold onto that as hope until you can get a definitive test.

Maybe in the US because so many poor Americans don't have access to healthcare or the money for drugs, or didn't get tested and realise they have it. I live in a city with one of the highest rates of HIV infection in the UK and deaths are rare here now thanks to programmes distributing PrEP and other anti-retrovirals, although the misconception that it's a death sentence remains. There are actually concerns that young gay guys have become complacent about condoms because they know it's not a death sentence. All the focus now is on raising awareness to reduce new infections, and on ensuring the 1/7 HIV-infected people who don't realise they have HIV get diagnosed and treated before it's too late (people do still die without knowing they had AIDS).

Oh yeah? Should my 8year old self have been carrying a lethal weapon? Should I have had a gun in my clutch on prom night? What about the time I was assaulted in broad daylight when I was taking a walk around the block to play pokemon go? Do I just carry a lethal weapon with me at all times? Fuck off, anon.

I can tell you how I made 2 friends. 1 was in lolita and had a table next to me in artist alley so we talk about that and found out we play the game mmorpg so we added each other on steam.
The other friend I made was cosplaying Mello and she didn't have any chocolate so I gave her a chocolate bar to match her cosplay. We just sorta became friends after that.

Basically, try to talk to people who you are stuck next to like in line to a panel or autograph and talk about something they are wearing or whatever. Also give yourself a reason to go up to someone. One friend I made just came up to my table and gave me candy and pokemon cards.

I'm saying you should carry a weapon to defend yourself when needed, not that it's the victims fault.
Of course the attacker is at fault you fucking retard. That does NOT mean you shouldn't take precautions.

Do you use condoms? Birth control?
Lock your doors? Apply sunscreen? You're already taking precautions. Why wouldn't you have some for attackers? This isn't just for women against rapists. I'm talking about defending your home, family, and wellbeing.

>teach rapists not to rape!
This is always a stupid argument. Teach murderers not to murder, teach thievs not to steal. They've been here since the beginning of time, you should be ready in case a crazy person strikes.

Is it the victims fault? Never. Should a potential victim be ready in case of attack? Always. To say otherwise makes you a delusional flower trapped in a bubble.

A stronger attacker can easily overpower you and turn it on yourself, it's an incredibly dangerous thing to do and could result in you ending up dead. Even for standard knife crime, which is usually guy-on-guy without as much of a size/strength disparity, people who carry are most likely to end up getting stabbed with their own knife. depending on the state/country you live in and their self-defense laws you could also end up in prison for killing someone even if you succeed, since it's your word against theirs that they tried to rape you before you killed them.

But I'm talking man on man rape attempt, so it's different. First thing I did for my girlfriend was get her self defense classes and pepper spray.

Not if they're grappling you in a way that they can't do that.

At least a gun doesn't rely on you being stronger, doesn't require you to be within grabbing distance to use it, and makes a loud enough noise to alert people in the local area even if you miss. A knife is a terrible idea.

>> No.9549915

>>9549911
Then get a gun.
In my opinion pepper spray is best, since chances are they're within grabbing distance already and the safety is easier to undo. A knife is just an example.

You should have any form of defense you know how to use. Fists, legs, pepper spray, knife, gun, ANYTHING. Man, woman, or other you should always be ready to defend yourself. Take up classes if you don't want to use a weapon. There are classes specifically for these scenarios. Please don't dissuade people from finding ways to protect themselves.

US anon here, it depends. Small headbow with ePacket can be like 12-15$, a couple dresses are $20 usually, and big orders with purses and shoes or several dresses gets fucked and ends up like 80-100 and more regardless of method. Can't remember Bodyline shipping on big orders but I think it was 35 or 40

>> No.9550758

>>9550460
It's similar then, if a little more expensive than shipping to the uk. It's so annoying when a packet goes over some arbitrary weight class and ends up tripling in price. On ebay I pay about 6 pounds for very small items, and around 11 pounds for a dress or two, for reference.

I'm cosplaying for my first time in August but my social skills are pretty weak (even have diagnosed anxiety disorder/selective mutism). They all vary somewhat cause they can 1; have shit taste, 2; halfass their cosplays and/or 3; be like me and have anxiety issues though cosplaying ought to work on that one.

Coming back to /cgl/ after a few years away to see it hasn't changed too much. That's cool, I guess.

As for my feels, they're pretty shit. I stopped coming to /cgl/ bc I gave up on cosplay, cons, anime, and games when it started getting mainstream popularity because a certain person from my past hopped on the bandwagon and, long story short, basically used my hobbies and her popularity to steal my entire friend group and use my depression and the extremely abusive situation I was in to turn everyone against me. I'm about to turn 25 and I have no friends, no boyfriend, and now I have no hobbies and i just also lost my awesome job to another two faced bitch who got me multiple writeups for things I never even did. I just wish I were dead. Now I just feel like an empty, worthless shell.
