It just feels pointless. I already have plenty of friends to talk to online, but absolutely no one I can hang out with in person at university. If I reach out to her I’ll have another person to talk which is nice and all, but it does nothing to change the fact that I’m still going to be alone.

There's this girl and she's head over heels for me, buys me things all the times, invites me out all the time. She's basically putting all the work in to the relationship even though I've said I don't want a girlfriend. She said that's okay and I can have sex with her whenever I want to. I find her physically attractive but not at the same time. We got very drunk together and she asked me why if I find her attractive, I'm not doing anything? I said because I like anime girls more. She didn't understand it at all and now she's upset at me.

I'm fairly sure I'm fundamentally broken as a human being. I can't watch porn because it doesn't do much for me anyway and I exclusively use hentai or doujinshi. I honestly just don't find her or women in general sexually desirable. I find them cute to look at and want to do cute things to them and with them, but not sexual. I don't know what to do. What have I done to myself?

>> No.9826437

Yeah I’m already feeling like a stalker with how much I know about her. She lives a little over an hour drive from me. I just want someone here that I can hang with any day of the week. If we did become friends, I’d only be able to see her on the weekends and it would be over 2 hours round trip. I also can’t afford to do that anyway because I’m looking for a new job right now

I wish it were that simple. Her post about leaving said she was feeling overwhelmed with the course load for her major

>> No.9826448

Why does everyone think you're gay? Just because you're single or some other reason?
Anyway, I get the point you're trying to make but imo if you know how to dress yourself in normie clothes, you'll figure out how to dress yourself in alternative clothes, and expressing yourself in a style that you love can be very attractive.
Which style appeals to you? Have you seen the ouji/boystyle thread?

>> No.9826449

Asexual and aromantic are different things, you can be Ace and still desire romantic relationships. You can be Ace and still have sexual thoughts but not have sexual thoughts about other people. It's a spectrum.

It could be something worth looking into on forums etc to see if how Ace people describe their experiences rings true for you or if there's something else going on.

>> No.9826453

Sounds like the anime/manga This Art Club Has a Problem.

Either lay off the doujinshi/hentai for a while (or don't fap in general) or get therapy.

>> No.9826456

It's a strange way to be. I can be turned on by girls but my thoughts immediately drift off to different characters. It's difficult to explain which is why I think the girl is so confused and upset that I won't give her sexual attention. I want to give her sexual attention but as soon as I realise what I'm about to do I remember that this is another human and stop. It feels morally wrong for some reason. This has never happened before.

I'm not necessarily unhappy with how I am or want to change. This is the first time it's ever really had an impact on how I relate to other people and I want to find someone who may be able to explain it better than I can.

>> No.9826457

Yeah, girls are usually better at makeup and sewing, so that sounds fairly logical.

>> No.9826459

Your mentor is google. If you have specific questions after that you have plenty of threads to ask them on
Yeah you sound like you might be ace. Like >>9826449 says, I'm personally asexual and while I'm not interested in having sex with anyone, I do have romantic feelings and desires, and while I get the occasional stir in my loins it doesn't make me want real sex. It can be a confusing thing to explore! But I feel like it's worth it to know nothing is wrong with you and it's just how you are.
That sucks, but it's not that difficult to let people know you're into girls. Like, much easier than coming out as gay. Actually, just saying "hey, you do know I'm not gay right?" is a very viable option.

I have the same issue. People think that if a guy's single for longer than 6 months as an adult and is moderately in shape and moderately well dressed he must either be gay and hiding it or be defective.
I've had lots of very awkward situations where my family has tried to "out" me and I usually don't have the heart to tell them it's because I'm ugly and women don't like me

>> No.9826473

Men’s fashion is cookie cutter easy. Sports jackets, button up shirts, tie tied in one of three different ways, slacks, slim dark wash jeans, sweaters with wooden buttons. Mix and match colors. Alt fashion has a creativity aspect to it that I find really appealing but haven’t figured out how to break into, and finding/creating clothes for J-fashion involves a brand new ballgame of sourcing from online retailers instead of walking into a store and buying things you like. I’m not saying I can’t do it myself, I could, obviously there’s a draw if I’m on cgl in the first place… I was just getting that pang that it would be really nice to have a hobby bond with someone else, and the couples lolita/ouji thread was really cute.

The gay thing is apparently because I’m effeminate. Athletic up above means figure skating in which I’m the only man in my club who isn’t a coach. I’ve also been told I have, and I quote, “hella gay voice”.

Definitely not saying that it’s as bad as coming out of the closet, didn’t mean to imply it.

I do tell people eventually, but I don’t want to start every conversation with every cute girl with “Hey I’m not Gay just FYI”. That’s just thirsty as fuck. And then by the time it comes up in conversation we’re already friends, or she’s not single anymore, or whatever. It’s not a huge deal it’s just a feel.

Oh, I didn't mean that in an oppression olympics kind of way, it's just that I was thinking coming out as gay is kind of made up to be this big reveal that you have to prepare while you can just drop that you're straight in normal conversation. idk I'm tired so I can't words right

Yeah if you just out of nowhere said to someone "Wew yeah I'm straight you know?" they'd probably think you were just in denial.

I've been feeling pretty uninspired by my wardrobe lately. I have 75+ main pieces, and I like them all individually, but when I go to coord them, I'm at a loss. Maybe it's my mood (I want to make a bunch of pastel vomit coords for spring, bUT most of my stuff is darker) or maybe I need more blouses/shoes/accessories, I don't know. I see girls on instagram wearing amazingly creative coords and I feel very cookie cutter in comparison. I want to make interesting coordinates, but I don't seem to have any good ideas. Have other gulls had this problem? What have you done to fix it?
I'm not looking to sell my dresses, just for ways to be more inspired by what I have.

>> No.9826537

Yeah, I don't understand why anons get so offended by anything related to girls doing something professional with computers; maybe it's because the guys who lurk threads like this that happen to be in computer science are also the same guys who have never worn jfash or a proper cosplay and come here just for the girls/to troll?

They're saying the bait is a story about a woman being so incompetent and nobody around her doing anything about it because of reverse sexism, not that women don't work in tech fields

I don't know what you mean by that but if you look around here male cosplayers are definitely underappreciated. they are held to a much higher standard than female cosplayers.The only male cosplays around here that get a decent amount of attention or praise are either muscle shirtless cosplays or large armor suits. The more beginner and intermediate level cosplayers are completely left in the dust.

I even started posting with a more feminine way because I wouldn't' get any meaningful help or concrit or advice unless I post pics of things on female mannequins/heads, and post in a more omg omg omg way. Even the sister community here has a male hate thread and bans anyone who's male in the hobby.

I feel as if most of the male hate is relegated to /cgl/, not the hobby in general. This is probably largely due to the robots who get fed here all day long.

I can’t say I’ve personally noticed beginner/intermediate female cosplayers getting more attention than male cosplayers of equal skill, EXCLUDING when skimpiness is involved. A guy and girl in equal-quality costumes not showing skin will likely get similar reception. When skin IS being shown, yea, the female cosplayer will definitely get more compliments, picture requests, likes, etc. Unfortunately, sex appeal dominates craftsmanship skill in that regard.

How do i deal with my gf being obsessed over a jrock musician? I was ok with it at first and didn't care about it when i realized and noticed lots of things that strike me as odd and i have gotten upset over. Were both woman if it makes any difference. She had a very famous tumblr blog dedicated to this guy, and posted news immediatly when it comes out. Was in the fanclub and would use icons on everything of this person. I bought her several stuff of him as gifts like tshirts and the like.On our anniversary she she told me that she had work and couldn't make it to our dinner, but in reality her star was going to come out on tv through japan time and she wanted to catch the stream. I also went to visit her and her family and she told me not to at the day i was going to visit her. That same day she traveled to go to a concert of the musician. I told her we should break up and she burst into tears telling me she loved me and can't live without me. I told her i didn't understand why if she treated me this way. She then got angry and said that i was trying to change her. I like musicians too but not like her, and i have lots of hobbies like lolita but i wouldn't put them above her. I'm truly lost and i dont know what to do.

No, i am not.
My concern isnt her liking him or being a fan. My concern is the lying abd the creepy obsession. I've tried talking to her about it, but i can't leave him out of it because the situations where she begins to lie is when it is concerning him or his band activities.
I talked to her multiple times about the subject before but she becomes inconsolable. Were both in our mid twenties and were both in good jobs right now. She is my first girlfriend and i never dated guys before. I don't know if her liking a musician makes her a bislut though. Atleast i dont think so. Its just a musician...what im concerned about is her obsessive lying and behavior over this person instead of paying attention and putting effort into our relationship.

aw if you even tried to talk to her about it and she's still acting like this that's indeed fucked anon, I'm sorry
it's a really weird age to still do that, not even in a condescending way, it sounds rather avoidant overall
it might stem from some kind of shame but if you even gave her themed presents I imagine she thinks you understand that she's a fan
my take would be to have one final talk with her, see if she can understand how it looks and feels from your end but without being aggressive or judgy, just be like anon I like you a lot but I can't continue if you keep hiding and pushing me away and so on

Hey, it’s ED anon from last thread, I figured I’d post an update thing, I hope no one minds. Yesterday I did well, I ate three meals and although I did exercise it wasn’t completely overkill. Today was bad though, I’ve been really depressed all day and as of now (around 9 pm) all I’ve eaten is 140 calories worth of crackers. My legs are so weak from my recent over exercising that I can barely walk and I’m just super weak in general. Lately a lot of the time when I stand up my vision goes black and I get dizzy, I don’t know if that has to do with lack of food or if it’s unrelated. I just weighed myself and I’m two pounds more than I was last time I weighed, I don’t think I could bring myself to eat right now if I tried. Sorry if I’m posting too much, but I find comfort in telling someone when I don’t want to worry the people that I care about, even if I’m just telling cgl.

Hi anon I saw you last thread too. Even though I don't know you personally I'm so proud of your courage to recognise your behaviors and talk about it even if it is with strangers. I'm proud of you for eating those three meals, some days are easy and some are hard. You sound like you aren't able to manage this by yourself. I hate for you to suffer and I can all but promise your loved ones would rather know you're sick and get you some treatment but be in the dark and see your dark circles, your shaking legs, your brittle hair, your weak smile. They see that. Im happy to talk if you want then I will drop my email. If not no pressure.

Do you also have an issue with drinking things anon? My main stress response is nausea and not eating, so on those days when I don't eat I try to drink a lot of juice and milk and hot cocoa and whatnot.

Are you baiting? Maybe you aren't baiting... Tell her you have objectophilia or, more accurately, agalmatophilia. You could suggest she read the story of Pygmalion to find a sense of understanding.

You didn't do anything to yourself. You're just one of those rare people who are attracted to a figurative representation opposed to being attracted to a flesh-and-blood person.

That is a good feel. I woke up early yesterday which is a rare occurrence. I put on some of the new clothing I bought last month, didn't wait for the last minute to fix my hair, and actually put on a little makeup for once. I felt good going to class, and I couldn't help noticing that people were way friendlier then usual toward me. It was also a good feel. I don't have class today, but I'm still going to dress up a little just to feel good about myself. I want to be better at taking care of myself, and actually find joy in the day. I hope your spree of happiness will continue, and have fun tomorrow!

Happy feel:
Managed to get 3 dream dresses within a month, with one being one of the "top tier" dresses on my small list. Babby lolita me would be proud, I'd never imagined I'd have the wardrobe I have now, looking at everything in my closet makes me so happy

Sad feel:
Likely going to be starting my BSN program full time in the fall which means lots of labs and school work, which leaves me with probably no time to wear lolita and enjoy the wardrobe I've built up
> won't be out of program until I'm 25
> intense fear that I'm going to grow distant to the fashion or feel too old even though that's kinda BS

Not always true. I can break a teacup much more easily than a plastic mixing bowl, and a small piece of flaky limestone much more easily than large chunk of granite. When it comes to metaphorical hearts, I'd say their fragility depends more on how resilient the material they're made of is rather than their size. Their size just makes it easier or harder to love and open up to others, and doesn't really affect how easily they're broken.

Your body will try to retain water when you're in starvation mode. Also, the dizziness and blacking out when you're standing is from not eating. I've been there. Stay safe, anon. You should keep yourself a box of cereal around, some sort of beverage with electrolytes, and something protein-based like peanut butter. The cereal is fairly nutrient rich although something like Carnation can work too. The peanut butter is good because you can ingest calories while not getting the 'fullness' feeling that can make one feel icky with a whole meal. I can't fix your ED, but I hope you don't end up like me where it took blood pressure dropping to coma level to fix you. You can try again tomorrow, and it'll be a better day.

You’re not alone, anon, I struggle with it a lot too. A lot of the time I worry that all my lolita friends actually hate me and only hang out with me because they feel sorry for me/want to laugh at me. But I find that when I get into that mindset, it’s good to remind myself how important it is to trust those around you - I know in my heart that my friends are good people, and so I should trust them rather than my shitty mental illnesses.

I have noticed several uber drivers rate me extremely low when I'm wearing lolita, and I don't understand why. I act the same no matter what I'm wearing: I'm polite and quiet, but friendly if spoken to. I rate 5 stars, leave compliments, and usually tip high. When in normie clothes I have been given consistently high ratings but after taking uber several times in lolita, I'm suddenly 3.8! Someone must have given me a 0 or something like that. I'm really sad and confused about this.

Maybe they thought the usual shit normies think about us; that you were wearing some fetish clothes, or something to that extent, and the driver who left you that rating was put off by it. It's bullshit, but it's possible.

Oh my god, anon. You're probably right. Uuuuurgghhhhhh. Pisses me off to think that one of the people I rated 5 stars and tipped well probably was like "eh, looks fetishy, no one should drive her ever again."
>why they rate passengers
I don't love it, but the reason why they do it makes sense. Basically it's so drivers can refuse to drive serially annoying or dangerous passengers. So if you do something like take an uber drunk and cuss at the driver three or four times, drivers can warn each other to not pick you by giving you a lower rating.

>> No.9827327

I get why you say that, but it's really not an ego thing. Drivers can refuse to drive people, and in my city are likely to refuse anyone with a rating under four. I've only used uber a few times, so one 0 or 2-3 low ratings literally makes it more difficult for me to get a ride in the future. That's what I'm worried about.

>> No.9827330

Huh. I suppose that does make sense.
Still, it sucks that someone would have rather given you a low rating for wearing weird clothes they thought were fetish-related, rather than ask you about it.
I don't know where you live but in my country, taxi drivers are generally very chatty and whenever I catch one, the drivers are always curious about the weird frilly clothes that I wear so it's a nice conversation starter; too bad that in your case, these drivers decided to just assume the worst.

>> No.9827331

Commenting again to add: Maybe try striking a conversation with your driver next time? There has to be a classy way to bring up the subject of what you're wearing other than "You're probably wondering why I'm all dressed up", but I suppose that's better than nothing at all. Just an idea.

do you sit in the front or back seat of a taxi in your country, and which country? I've asked so many people about the front/back dilemma and people are completely divided where I live (UK). I rarely ever talk to taxi drivers and when im in lolita they tend to treat me like a little kid lmfao

I'd rather not say where I live because our local community is very small, but I tend to sit in the back. I usually carry a large bag and a parasol with me, so I'd rather take up space with my stuff and petti in the back seat.
Drivers either look at me funny and then decide I'm "actually pretty cool" when I explain what the clothes are about; or they love it right away and start talking to me about the fashionable celebrities they've driven around in the past, or how their daughter would love the clothes too. Fortunately I've never met one who suspected lolita might be a sex thing, but I guess it's a matter of luck.
