My stamina and endurance is up but my weight hasnt made much progress good or bad. I think I am still eating too much, I count my calories and Im trying to eat 1400 a day but I must be doing something wrong.

I wish I could just stop eating entirely but I feel so hungry all the fucking time, its horrible.

My bf bought me my dream dress the other day. I felt really happy so I offer him sex. Now I feel like a cheap prostitute.

How can I do things for him other than sex that he'll appreciate the next he buys a lolita dress?

Whats wrong with sex, sounds like a win-win.

Anyway you can just make him dinner or take him out somewhere in return.

>> No.9644820

Just have sex with him all the time, that's what I do. That way it won't be awkward.
Or you can buy/gift him something he likes in return.

Make him his favorite meal, join in on a video game, draw him something, give him a small gift involving something he likes.

You two are in a relationship, just because you show gratitude through sex doesn't mean you're exchanging it for gifts. I would assume you like him for him enough to have sex either way so?

>tfw bf chides me every time I spend money on lolita or sewing supplies but is also completely unsupportive of me finding a job
He has the smarts, experience and educational background that makes institutions and corporations throw themselves at his feet (and he chose the lowest-paying position fml) and doesn't seem to grasp that it's not like that for everyone else out there. I have a STEM degree but so does everyone else in this city of nerds so it's not as easy for an unexperienced baby grad like me to find a position as it was for him. Now I'm considering a retail job for a few hours a week just for something to do + lolita spending money and he's scoffing at me like the thought alone is beneath us. I don't expect him to be as interested in my hobbies as I am, but it's starting to feel like he doesn't understand that I have hobbies or a life of my own at all. He sure as hell isn't spending money on my hobbies so why is it so bad that I want to earn a bit myself, even if it's through something as ~lowly~ as retail? Fuck this shit.

Have you got your thyroid checked? It might be a medical thing that you can fix. Also see if you can cut down to 1200 a day, that's like the upper limit of quick progress weight loss caloric intake. Just keep in mind that weight you lose slowly is less likely to come back. Good luck anon!

Did you send her nudes? If you haven't; don't. Chances are she'll share them with this guy for cool girl points. When someone calls you pretty and asks for nudes that doesn’t mean they necessarily like you as a person or want to date you. Imagine if her messages were coming from a man.

Remember anon, muscle weighs more than fat, have you measured yourself lately? Maybe you are toning up you're just too busy on the scales to notice.

>> No.9645100

are you going by the scale or going by your measurements? it's actually pretty hard for some people to lose weight through exercise, as a) you're gaining muscle, even though it may not show, and b) the amount of calories burned off in a moderate workout isn't necessarily that huge in the larger scheme of calories in/calories out.

if your clothes aren't getting looser/fitting better, maybe see a doc like the other anon said; but if you're looking more fit, don't worry too much about what the scale says. keep an eye out for signs of malnourishment. if you're exercising a lot, your body needs more of certain nutrients (protein, some minerals I think, been a while so details are hazy). and if you're avoiding certain categories of foods due to their being fattening, it's possible to end up with deficiencies of vitamins, trace minerals etc. which will make you feel hungrier. finding ways to work those nutrients into your diet might help you feel less hungry.

My boyfriend would always buy dresses for me. I never asked him to, he would look through my favorites and buy them himself to surprise me. I always cook for him, clean his house whenever I go over, have sex with him whenever he wants, etc.

My friend showed me his active okc profile. I go psycho-gf and catfish as a pretty girl and he messages me before I even message him. He flirts, says he's single, and wants to meet up.

I confront him, and he claims someone is catfishing as him. I laugh and break up with him. Now he's demanding I pay him back for all the dresses he's bought me, since he bought them "expecting a return on his investment."

Should I pay him back? Give the dresses back? Or just say fuck him?

So he made an account and checked it regularly just so she'd message an account he'd already made? K-dramas aren't irl anon. It's just a shit excuse cheaters always use.

>> No.9645132

No, but her reason was that he found her account and messaged it
It's pretty likely he knew she was going crazy about it and knew she was the one catfishing him the entire time. He probably heard about it from her friend too

>> No.9645135

But why would he claim someone was catfishing as him rather than confess it's a prank? I think anon did the right thing. The guy's free now and if he wants money back, he should ask for it explicitly.

Im actually on thyroid medication already :) Its already helped a lot because before it I was gaining weight even with working out and cutting calories! Now I just dont gain or lose it seems. I was thinking of cutting to 1200 though, I tried that before and failed but you know, try try again.

I actually havent measured myself since working out, thanks for reminding me!

Last time I went to the doctor and got everything checked I did find out I was low on B12 and Vitamin D, so Ive been trying to remember to take my vitamins. Other than that I dont really avoid any food, I just try to do healthy versions instead (like turkey or fish instead of beef)

Thanks so much for all the advice though! One of the things that helps me keep going is other gulls being helpful and supportive! In real life people just go "Oh but youre so cute already! You dont HAVE to lose weight!" and its a bunch of bullshit and they know it.

In high school I had a guy pull this on me, wanted all the gifts he had given me back, and Ill tell you what I told him "No."

Gifts are not legally bound to him, he can not do a single thing to take them back. No police or judge would ever side with him. Gifts are not a monetary investment.

Dont pay him or give him back a single fucking thing, and if he harasses you about it just call the police and get a restraining order if needed.

I have nobody else to say this to:
After years of feeling guilty and disgusted with myself, I finally realized it’s okay for me to like women. It’s like a huge weight has been lifted and I really think being in the lolita community helped me accept that part of myself. Im so much happier now, I don’t feel this wave of guilt anytime I look at a girl now. So thanks to all the lolitas in my life and here on /cgl that helped show me that girl love is amazing and nothing to be ashamed of.

So the past few (larger) cons I've been to have honestly been not so great experiences. It just seems like every time some kind of drama follows me and ruins my good time, whether it's caused by people I room with being pissy or refusing to communicate, or just freak accidents in general that aren't anyone's fault.
For example at the con I just got back from, our ride there and back broke down. So we almost got stranded in an unfamiliar city, and trying to sort things out with AAA and trying to find a ride back honestly put a damper on our weekend.

It just seems like even when we plan ahead meticulously and cut out con friends who cause drama, it still seems to follow us. I just want to be able to go to conventions again and be able to have fun instead of just having them cause more stress. It kinda makes me wonder if I should quit going to conventions altogether if they're going to be this much trouble, but I really don't want to do that. I don't know if cons are always going to be this stressful no matter what I do, or if I just need to learn from my mistakes from previous cons and do things differently next time.

Idk /cgl/, I just got back from the con maybe it's just that post-con depression that fueled this post but if anyone has any kind of advice or tips to offer on how to make my convention experiences better in the future I'd love to hear it. Cons aren't really something I'm ready to abandon just yet.

A normie girl at work has an obvious crush on me.

How do I help her transform into an anime-obsessed cosplayer?

>> No.9647817

Start with 80s-90s normie anime. No EVA, fanserivce, giant tits, lolis, horror, or moe anime. Just something that could easily have been played on cartoon network if it were in english. If you start with super flanderized modern anime they're just going to rightfully think it's dumb. It's something you have to be desensitized and worked into if you didn't get into it as a kid. If she's old enough start with talking about things you liked as a kid and mention remembering Sailor Moon.

Or even start with something like saying you like/used to like Samurai Jack. If she makes it really clear she finds it childish anime is probably going to be even worse. Otherwise you have a gateway and can start talking about how it ended up leading you to ___ anime and go from there.

Oh absolutely my parents are shitheads and I know because of their selfish bullshit I've got abandonment issues I have to work on. Also I don't isolate myself, I managed to make a small but tight-knit group of friends in my old school and I already made my first friend here, this cute virginal korean girl she's adorable. Thank you for caring about me.

I do however resent you for calling him "predatory and wolfish", he was nothing of the sort, he was a gentleman, treated me wonderfully and made me happy. I get how it looks bad but he is nothing like what you're describing. Again thank you for caring about me, but don't be unfair to him.

Except being empowered is not a "feeling"

Being empowered means you are literally exercising power and are in control

Are you in control if you are a housewife?
Not exactly. You rely on your husband for support.

You cannot possibly exercise power because all the power lies with your husband as he's the one who earns the wealth.

People think feminists dislike the idea of being a housewife as some kind of ideological holier than thou snobbery but their criticisms are very legitimate. It does genuinely put the woman in question in a very vulnerable situation.

It can be very lonely and boring which can give way to depression and isolation.

It can be solved by spliting his salary. Being a housewife is full time job (especially if you have children) so it should be paid.

Nyart but it's possible they don't mean financial imbalance so directly. My mother's employer went out of business around the same time her mother's Alzheimers was getting pretty bad so she became a housewife. Now it's so bad she has to go literally almost all day everyday because we can't afford help but we're "too rich" for the government and etc. My dad would constantly bring up how it's "not their money, it's his," would refuse to do any kind of chores or picking up after himself, and would complain a bunch if not everything was finished on a really bad day. Pretty much any chance there is to use it him being the only one to have a job is used as leverage.

He's pretty great comparing to tons of other husband's and fathers, but this kind of thing is extremely common now with housewives. It used to be respected and seen as a legitimate full time and important job. Now after modern appliances, work being forced onto everyone, and both men and women collectively shitting on it even being a waitress and dropping the kids off at daycare is considered much more respectable. There's been multiple fact checks about how it still saves money in 2017, especially for day care. And doing it right is still actually a full time job, but neither are going to change anyone's mind really. I used to really want to be a housewife at least up until preschool age, but the vast majority of guys I've seen specifically looking for or considering it made r9k look like tumblr feminists.

I find it fun to be a housewife. My husband is my best friend, so as far as power is concerned, it's a non-issue. We're married, not warring with one another. I'm also in charge of the finances, so it's not like I have to ask for money or anything. My husband will usually ask me if we have the money for something bigger or what acount to draw funds from since I know what's what with our finances.

As far as aspirations? I'm happy to be a stay at home mom. I like being home with our children during the day. And if I want to go back to work, I can do that. But if I have free time, I usually focus on my artwork.

I thought feminism was about not being forced into gender roles/the freedom to choose what you want to do with your life. Some women are prefectly happy being housewives. If they choose that, then it is their business. Just as some men make amazing stay at home dads. If it works for the couple, then great!

All these gulls worried about power. But then they don't realise they can dump a douche bag. If you're married and divorce, alimony is a thing.

The red flags are easy to spot at least. Avoid guys who keep referencing being "the man of the house," want to go back to the 40s-50s, say things like "my money, my rules", demand things like >>9649122 and insist on punishment despite physical health, get angry at you for having any friends even other women, and all the standard abuse warnings. It's not so much that everyone who wants a housewife is abusive, but that abusers love having someone with as little contact and respect from others as possible.

I'm not saying liking anything from that period is a red flag to be clear, I mean the ones that want to go back to what they think the 50s were like based on known fakes like >>9649122

Some things aren't worth divorce. Especially when you have two kids, have been married for several decades, and everything is fine otherwise. Doesn't make it any less stressful or frustrating however. I agree with a lot of what you're saying but acting like divorce is an easy drop of the hat thing is ridiculous. Even domestic abuse cases with children have a lot of complications and are extremely stressful. The only kind that isn't are "no fault" divorces that are mutually agreed upon. If you actually need a divorce a mutual one is very unlikely.

I'm >>9649568 and specifically mention how much I hate how it's seen now. It's just unless you're very well off like having a surgeon bf like you do it can be very hard to find a genuine partner. Especially since you don't know how much they'll change once it actually does happen. Only the absolute dumbest start it right off the bat.

Same here. I finished my degree earlier this year and it's one where everyone kept telling me how easy it would be to find a well-paying job, but I'm having zero success so far. As someone who loves cooking and keeping the house tidy and wants children sooner rather than later, being a housekeeper sounds pretty great. Unfortunately my fiancé currently earns peanuts and everyone I've ever talked to about this shit all over the concept as being only for lazy gold-digging whores who want to watch tv all day and don't deserve any semblance of respect. If I were to go full housewife I'd probably lose a lot of friends.
I'm going to keep looking for jobs for the time being, but if I'm still a NEET by the time my fiancé gets his PhD and we're properly married, I'm probably going to say "fuck it", get pregnant and be a SAHM. He's been half-jokingly begging me for babies for years now so my fiancé would definitely be down with this plan. The only snag is that I'd feel really guilty spending money I didn't personally earn on something as expensive and frivolous as lolita, but it's the one hobby that gives me the most joy. Why couldn't I be into something cheap? Dangit.

Got dressed up as a maiko and had photos taken the other day (inb4 cultural appropriation) and I'm weirdly torn on the results.
On one hand I think the cute, rounded style is a little unflattering on me and I should have asked for 'elegant' instead.
On the other, they kept gushing about how my 'baby face' and 'puppy eyes' were perfect for it and saying it was super cute.

Not humblebragging. I don't have a babyface at all and my features are quite sharp/straight, so maybe it's just jarring to me to see super rounded eyebrows and droopy eyes.

>idk why this is such a strong feel, gulls.
>make it stop.

In other feels, I stumbled upon Baby and AP pop-up stores in kawaramachi OPA! First time I've ever been surrounded by so much burando.

Is this one of these thing where you rent a costume, get help with putting it on + hair + makeup and then get pictures taken, like with the kimono/geisha dressup in Kyoto? If so, them gushing over how kawaii you are is just part of the service. I'm legit ugly as fuck and they still treated me as if I were the Second Coming of [insert celebrity known for her beauty]. Your initial reaction was probably right and you look better with more elegant makeup. You know your own face best.

I can't decide should I spend the time sewing since I finally have some free time, or should I go to my parents to the countryside.

>> No.9650851

Yeah it was, haha. Ahhh well. I still love the photos and I guess if I ever come back, I'd like to do it again with the elegant style, different colours, etc.

Man we went to the Kyoto Disney and Sanrio stores today and it was like a fucking religious experience. Can't imagine how Disneyland and Puroland are going to be.

This is so far off from being cgl related it might as well be completely off topic

but if you're such a perfectionist, why didn't you do it yourself?
I mean, there is nothing wrong with buying a cosplay, but you shouldn't expect it to be perfect.

You should work on it
It's childish to be embarrassed about your interests. If you're interested enough in something you'd shouldn't try to hide it, even though there's a difference between that and making it your whole life

Only that you're complaining about how a Japanese women's fashion doesn't fit. Especially when you're purposely adding bulk. It's like a woman complaining about how men's suits aren't cut to perfectly enhance f-cup breasts.

honestly its so mainstream now, just own it. you dont even have to really acknowledge it or say anything on the matter either. i was afraid of showing my power level because of my previous group of friends, but now that i'm in uni i just do whatever i want and no one says shit. so long as you're not a retard and try to act fake cute or anything, you're gucci

male who just got into prop making and sewing.
never really cared much about what people think about me.
(Perks of being a 6'4ft ugly man)
But when my roomies walked in on me working on a sewing machine it kinda shook me a little.
Fair to say i doubled my calories that day and went hard in the gym.

How do i make Cosplay less "Gay" ?

I apologize if this makes me seem naive or immature but im from Scotland and the male power dynamic is a bit weird here .
