Hold it right there anon! Get some wax paper and rub those zipper teeth with it while open. Run the paper along both sides separately and try to zip it again. Halfway is usually right at the waist too, so the extra fabric could be making it difficult to zip. But wax paper and a slow, steady pull usually does the trick for me

The thing that sucks most about being an adult is knowing that just because someone is a bitch to you, doesn't necessarily mean they're a bitch to other people. And maybe they are nice? Just not to you.

I've been wanting the chance to purge most of my belongings, I just have so much shit and I don't need any of it. Old cosplays, trinkets, clothes, shoes, books, other assorted random junk. But my entire life is packed into a storage unit while I sleep on a friend's couch until my mom's house is done being built. Though it's gotten to the point of living with my friend that I'm having so much anxiety about having my own stuff with me (I'm pretty much living out of a spare drawer and my backpack) and needing my own space that I'm starting to despise being around my friends. I need my own space so bad that the anxiety is reactivating my trich and I know I'm getting sick. Trying to tell myself I just have to last 120 more days but who knows what the rest of the year will bring.

My friend and I are both mutuals of her's, and we're all girls if anyone is curious. I'm not trying to be the hero to swoop in and save her, I just know how it feels to be lonely, and I'm quite lacking in friends myself. She does seem really cool, too.

Seems like she's just got the good ol' case of mental health fucking is in the dumps. I've been in a similar place and I really appreciate the patience. Sometimes its incredibly difficult for me to instigate stuff, so maybe it might be worth setting something up multiple times and waiting to see if she shows up instead of leaving it to when she's free-because it'll be more likely that whatever brain shit she has going on will make her do to 'oh shit, I didn't reply to this for a month and now that I feel better, it's too awkward to approach now'.

And I guess, just have a lot of patience. Seems like she's got a lot of problems to work through, and it'll be quite draining on you if you want to be there for her.

This is bullshit and it makes me angry people like this can have friends, but I literally only have my SO, and the two of us have been searching for a squad of friends for so long it's ridiculous. We thought we'd found a group but they ghosted on us with no explanation. Actually, even worse than ghosting, they are still fakely friendly to us on social media every so often, but the weekly hangout session invites stopped all of a sudden last year with no explanation. This was after nearly a year of regularly hanging out.

I'm still upset that they excluded us from the holiday gathering/gift exchange that we'd originally been invited to (this was in mid-nov and we were told there'd be a gift exchange) When holidays roll around and we hear no word from them, we figured it must've been cancelled because people were busy or something, but there were pics on Facebook of the gathering. I still have a bunch of holiday gifts in my house for these people, like some pathetic loser.

I really wish I could just know what we did that warranted estrangement. I feel like then I could finally stop being so bitter.

Try to slowly and subtly plant seeds in your friends' ears, pointing out the inconsiderate things she does. Be sure to frame it like you aren't trying to throw her under the bus, but instead like you are being an accomodating person and want to "try" to work out the issues. IE "I'm worried anon doesn't like me because she yells/badgers me about x and it makes me feel shitty, what do you guys think I should do?" If certain friends seem receptive or agree that it's shitty behavior, stick with them and continue to point out bad behavior. Be careful about complaning about her nonstop or shit talking; if she's truly manipulated them into being her besties you won't get a good reaction out of that. Basically, play a slow game and see if anyone else begins to pick up on her BS - I thought for a long time that my friendgroup all liked this one obnoxious tumblr dramaqueen, but the second I brought up their obnoxious behavior they all admitted that they secretly thought she was annoying.

Why though? It's not mature or adult just to blindly tolerate your friends views/actions, you have to have some common ground with people to be friends. Not saying everyone with opposing views should chew each other out, but being someone's friend is supposed to be an enjoyable experience. If finding out that info means you can't enjoy their company anymore, then you already aren't friends anymore. Formally acknowledging that and breaking things off is just the mature thing to do.

>Kinks
I'd stop being friends with someone if I found out they were into scat or pee, adbl or daddy dom. I wouldn't be able to enjoy the company of someone who enjoys those things once I knew.

>Un-PC views

If anything, we were some of the most normal, PC people in the group, but we never shamed anyone for the stuff they'd talk about. They were actually the type of weebs to discuss kinks fairly openly so I don't think that's it. They had far creepier skeletons in their closet than us.

Looking back hard, the only thing I can really think of saying that seemed to offend them was when we said furries creeped us out in a discussion on furfaggotry. We got the whole "awww but they're so nice plus people like what they like you know" spiel and were side eyed for it.

What you need to do is take a day off and prioritize what you want. I like to write my goals on flash cards and organize them by priority. Which ever ones are the big ones, I put on my fridge as a reminder. For the smaller, day to day goals, I put them on clothes pins and take them dub as I go.
Right now I think you're thinking too much and are getting overwhelmed because of how big these projects are. But if you break them down into smaller tasks, you'll feel better.

Example: wanting to change your style (I'm doing the same thing)
It won't happen overnight, and yeah it takes money. But it's free to look through your existing wardrobe and see what you have that could work with your new style, what would work with what, what you may need, and what you should purge. You could even earn a few coins if you have a consignment shop!

Try to keep your head up and focus on each day for what it is. You got this

My fiancé loves her to bits and will bring her treats back from work with him.
She's just so damn precious and I'm so upset that she got landed with someone like him. I try to make up for it by making little skirts for her from leftover fabric from my cosplays too and she loves them and dressing up.

I'm glad that you're doing all that for them. Hits pretty close to home because I lost a child to a rather malignant woman and later developed unironic fatherly daughterfu feels for Kanna while watching Dragon Maid. It all happened quite some time ago, but the series made a bunch of unwanted thoughts resurface about never getting a chance to know who they'd become or being able to experience what you do with your niece. Going to a con recently and seeing the nonlewd Kannas run around being silly and smiling was like extra stabs to the heart. After getting back from that con, I discovered my extended family must have heard some of the story kid because my uncle randomly told me while drunk at a gathering, "You don't have forever to become a better father." Which of course, felt like shit to hear because there's not a chance for me to do anything about it now. I hope you get to watch them grow up and be the little sister you never had, anon.

More rounded ones, maybe with a very subtle cat eye, in cute colours. For the love of God don't wear red heart-shaped sunglasses (or most heart-shaped sunglasses in general) unless you want even more people than normal to think you're pedobait.

Over-ear headphones help too, if you're not in an area where you risk people yanking off your head to sell. People can't see in-ear ones from a distance but over-ear ones broadcast "keep away" pretty loudly.

Anon I used to have anxiety really bad too. I used to be so afraid of other people I refused to speak in any class. I got sick of the shitty feelings so I decided to just throw myself up against the problem, consequences be damned. Basically I threw it in the "fuck it bucket".

Over time I went from literally incapable of speech to speaking in front of a large college auditorium. It took a long time but it helped my confidence in every way, and now I'm used to stares or whatever. I can finally wear Lolita out alone.

Just put yourself out there a little bit at a time. Wear cute shoes one day or do your hair nice. If someone stares it's because they weren't excpecting to see someone dressed like you, which makes sense. If they have any shitty thoughts then that's coming from their own life problems and doesn't affect you.

You can do it!

This is a stupid meme and I am sick of it. There is no magic period in anyone's life where they become happy or just suddenly look in the mirror and accept themselves. It doesn't happen when you turn 25, or 40, or when you get your first big girl job, or when you get married and have kids.

Many anorexics, once done with treatment, gain weight and say they are happy, post a lot of before and afters on instagram, but who knows if they really are recovered, actually mentally sound, etc. In fact, they're often overweight, not actually fit, and just as unhealthy and now promoting "body positivity" in a new, retarded way.

I'm currently switching substyles and am a little too into sugary sweet and am starting almost from scratch, are you selling anything anywhere online, I'm quite possibly interested in buying stuff, especially accessories.

Also, if you're into 60s mod stuff, try taking a look at your library and ask them about locating/possibly purchasing some of their older fashion/hairstyling/etc books from the period.

Sorry, meant to say "local public library" but try the local high school library too (when the librarian comes back from vacation in September) they love off-loading out of date crap, especially if you offer like $2 a book or whatever.

Realistically you'd still end up spending like 3-5k a year on a relationship, even with a normie. Bits of lolita aren't that bad, but the requirement of that to even start is quite absurd. Also if you're asking for a gf in the feels thread, you're pretty desperate buddy.

haven't sold anything yet. I've noticed some of my dresses aren't in that great of condition and died a bit inside.
some normies threw drinks on my clothes.. twice. coffee and tomato juice. haven't been able to get it out but cant bring myself to throw these dresses away.
I've been considering just doing bundle sales to get rid of them, but its important to me they go to someone who will love them and not some ageplayer.

that's pretty solid advice. I'll make the push to get myself signed up for the local library.

Is this what being a late boomer is like? I'm slightly tempted to break up with my bf for a month or two just to see if interest from other guys disappears once I'm single again (for science!) but of course don't actually want to risk this relationship because it's pretty great.
I also didn't start wearing lolita out until after I started dating my bf so that can't have been the turnoff. In fact, half the time I get hit on is when I'm wearing lolita. I thought it was supposed to be penis-repellent?

Of course you'll spend a lot on a relationship.
But not on buying the other person bribes to be with you.
On dates and stuff you both enjoy, and the occasional gift, which needs to come from both sides.

Shy girls are like spiders: you'll never even know they're there if you don't look in the quiet corners.

Realistically though, in the short term, try the friend-finder thread and maybe mention you're a shy guy looking for a shy girl. They might not make a post themselves but they'll be reading them, so maybe mention it's alright for non-posters to contact you.

Tbh kinda pathetic how you think it's impossible to do anything at all with your life. That's not how you turn it around. You need to be able to do things for yourself before anyone will respect you. At least come up with a plan, because other people had it much worse than you and have been more successful. It just sounds like you have a shitty pitiful attitude where you expected things in life to be easy and found out they weren't. You can at least be more productive than crying about yourself on a chinese carp fishing messageboard.

Try the advice in >>9558494 too for now.
Really, I shouldn't be giving relationship advice because I'm pretty friendless myself, but it's easier for people with interests like cosplay to find people who at least share that interest, after that it's a "sift out the icky peas" type situation, which can take a long time and feel lonely. You might never find someone *exactly* like what you're looking for, so it's best to look for friends, and then let it progress slowly into whatever may come, I would say.
That's probably my best advice at 4am. Have another heart though: <3

Why do girls have such a hard time making genuine friends?

>> No.9558509

>>9558491
anon, outside of making an effort to actually meet a girl, you need at least two out of these three things to get a meaningful relationship. wont be the perfect relationship, but it will be a relationship. If you are in school you only need one of the three, but will be expected to get 2/3 once you or the girl you are seeing is out of school. if you excell AMAZINGLY in one of the 3 ( rich af, hot af, legendary personality) you can get a relationship, but it will most likely be shallow.

>money (could be having a job, could be just having money)
>personality (a nice personality)
>looks ( be good looking)

no one exels in all three, and if they do they're either unicorns or most likely lying out of their ass.
from what I see of your personality, it needs some work... and lets pray that you're not NEET.

Can genuine friendships between women even exist?
I thought women always (subconsciously) compete with each other which prevents real companionships and leads to more cattiness.

from a male point of view:

women have a much higher tendency to be backbiting cunts/weirdly incapable of dropping relatively minor issues/dramatic faggots.

I don't know any female classmates that still have friends from before middleschool, whereas I have had the same friend group since middleschool and past college.
This is more than anecdotal, males and female I ask have confirmed.

>> No.9558515

based off of the women in my life, it seems women are more likely to make genuine girl friends when they're older. maybe it has to do with growing out of that competitive instinct.

However I'm no longer friends with any of the girls from highschool- I wanted to be friends with them, and it turned out they all talked shit behind my back and generally disliked me as soon as I moved to another school for my last year.

Right but, they're self admittedly a 27 year old MAN. They're not some confused teenage boy without control of their lives. They're a grown adult that's made the choice to sit around jacking off to cartoons rather than working towards anything meaningful in their life. They don't need pity from you because they've made enough on their own. They know what they need to do with their life without you even telling them. What do you think they'd want from you anyways?
