Hey dude this is going to sound mean but take it easy on the posting, no one likes a desperate guy. Also just so you know, the more lolitas know you as 'THAT' guy on cgl, the more they're going to want to avoid you since your face/name will be synonymous with 'oh its that guy who was desperate for a lolita gf'

and the last thing anyone wants is to date a desperate person linked to cgl.

>> No.9851896

If you're worried about your social skills, maybe you start off by trying to meet people on common ground? You and the other girls will be there to enjoy the entire fun event, presumably, so how about you just focus on that, first? You can definitely talk shop about Lolita fashion, that should be able to provide for some conversations, but obviously, you don't necessarily want this to be everything you talk about. These two should be your icebreakers. Lastly, you'll want to fall back on talking about what other people do, whether it's work, school, or a passion, and ask questions. People like being asked questions about themselves, but it's easier to do once you've gotten someone eased into a conversation.

Finally, you'll want to remember to be yourself. By that, I don't mean the tired old meme advice that others give, even though it does have useful meaning behind the unfortunately ambiguous appearance; I'm talking about being genuine. Don't be afraid to say what you really think about things, and be honest! Good people often times relax much more easily around you when you're clearly being open, genuine, and honest with them.

I love talking with people, and I've probably made every mistake in the book when it comes to talking, so I hope my tips are helpful. I'm always lurking, so feel free to ask me questions.

>Burning ~2800-3500 calories a day and consuming 1800-2200 daily.
You don't actually burn that many calories. There's no way that amount of workout would be sustainable for you unless you were already in good shape. Also, I'm below the body fat percentage you have as a target for yourself, and maintaining that requires a strict diet, not rigorous exercise routines.

Final reminder, posting about how hard you're working to get a seagull gf is not what the feels thread is for. This is for things like pic related. Please stop daily posting before you become the meme Kaiba-chan, breaker of rules without money, poster of unironic tfw no cgl gf, selfposter of bad haircuts, and OTT blogposter of the feels thread.

You don't get there from only working out. It's diet first, exercise second. Entirely possible to gain weight and maintain a higher body fat percentage while having intense workouts. It helps, but your calorie intake is what ends up deciding weight loss. For instance, drinking an energy drink and some sports beverage could sabotage the benefits from an entire hour of a workout routine. It's ideal to have both workout and diet, but specifically weight loss and body fat percentage depend more on diet.

It's true that a strict diet is the most important aspect of weight loss specifically, but lifting is as well. Building muscles effectively turns them into calorie burning furnaces, and the acts of exercise burn fat themselves. Hell, some exercises, like sprinting, can radically change the way your body metabolizes things like fat and carbs:

Even when I was in PEAK PERFORMANCE mode, I wasn't able to stay around 10% or slightly lower. It required a restricted diet to get there and to maintain it. I'll admit I'm not really buff so my experience is different, as my primary interest is fitting into luxury fashion perfectly without looking emasculated.

I really don't have much time for something like that. Shitposting in the early hours of morning is all you could hope to get from me. My last post so I don't shit up everything. Being an idealized version of man means turning your desires into your needs. You don't need them to live, but you need them to live the life you want. People want someone to rely upon, and you can start becoming that by relying on yourself first. You have to be the person to motivate yourself, because even if you do start to look better and attract that seagull gf, it's going to be your character that keeps them around.

Also, my life is a complete disaster but it isn't from a lack of career success or wealth. So maybe make some compromises instead of sacrifices for those things.

I can't deal with the fact thotplayers exist anymore. It's making me disgusted with cosplay and I don't know if I wanna do this stuff anymore. Why are there men who pay them? Why does every female cosplayer who gains any level of notoriety basically turn into a softcore porn actor? Why the hell do people give them money? I mean many of them like Miko who is pic related I picked especially because she really is not conventionally attractive, she tries to hide her bad angles but she had a gigantic fucking beak and a maxilla that would make a chimpanzee weep. Not to mention they are fucking always terrible people. I used to be in yuzupyon's discord server and she was morally degraded to a point she had people call her "goddess" and gave anyone who went out of line a mocking role. It's fucking revolting. Why do some men like this shit? Why do so many of them? What poor existences do they lead that turns them into following these people? Why did it ruin cosplay? Can I please just get a list of all the patrons who support it so I can personally castrate them? Why does thotplay exist? Why can't people stop thinking with their dicks?

I got into cosplay so I could have fun sewing things that can be a little bit outlandish, as 99% of men's designs follow the exact same sewing patterns, but this is managing to make me legitimately depressed.

Basically the idea is you have men who generally can be at least somewhat horny in their private lives. Porn makes a ton of money, this is a fact. People spend lots of money and attention on it. It's generally like a "fap in private" sort of thing.

>> No.9852404

I know that porn exists and that most of pornstars are dredges who are only made attractive by a fuckton of makeup. But this can't be the same thing. I mean porn is a sexual outing, even if they pay for fetish clips I still understand it as that and only that, but is this what cosplay seriously turned into, only by virtue of there being horny men? I mean wouldn't they just go to any other outlet for naked bodies that internet is full of? Or is it because of cosplayers who brought the porn to them? How did this happen? Why are they paying for something that isn't even good as porn?

Fap in private? I don't understand. I mean I already said the differences between porn and "cosplay".

Imagine a venn diagram involving guys into nerd niche hobbies that aren't so niche these days and horny men with money. The overlap of that diagram is horny men with money that are into these hobbies that want to see real women dressed up as their 2D waifu. If cosplay wasn't even more niche it wouldn't be so much of a problem but it takes skill to be a good cosplayer so there are relatively few cosplayers. The low supply will increase the demand in each cosplayer willing to be a costhot which will reciprocallly increase supply when other cosplayers and people outside of cosplay see the dollar signs. That why it seems like an invasion of costhots. That's just my flippant interpretation though.

>> No.9852435

It seems strange to me. I mean I get the point that it would be like a lewd fan service, but isn't that just what pixiv hentai is? I mean it makes sense but... I guess I just don't wanna believe it.

Imagine if you would the ironic weeb. He will never be attracted to a picture. He finds fan service in anime obnoxious and his boner to it a shame. Now imagine a real woman taking away that shame by posting even more revealing versions of it as an easy monitor sized wallpaper picture. He can be into anime girls now without being labeled a pervert because it's not a 2D girl. It's a 3D girl dressed up as a 2D girl. She's flesh and blood "real". Now the shame is relegated to the same level as vanilla porn which makes it very normalized. Where this nerd wouldn't fap to doujinshi of Holo because that would make him uncomfortable, he now would much easier fap to a girl with a tail butt plug. Want that butt plug wallpaper? Get it for 19.99 a month on patreon and more to follow until he forgets why he's being charged twenty dollars a month for a picture he already has saved.

I when to my first con recently. I only had a bought cosplay. I had loads on nerds on me. Asking for pics. Even got some hover hand. I dont get why people have an issue with this. No skin showing but I still got loads of attention. Sometimes people are just more popular. I'm sorry that all of life seems like high school over and over again. Do not be mad about it though.

That really only makes me hate the nerds more. But it's more depressing how it completely pervaded through cosplay. It's surprising though. I know there are sometimes issues with harassment which I kinda ascribe to the fact cosplay gets represented by costhots, but I always thought cosplay cons were always mostly women with very few guys.

Is cosplay a nerd safespace? Always thought of it more like appreciation of character design art.

Well it's pretty simple. Think of a porn actor. Now think of someone dressing up as your favorite female or male character. Which is more attractive? It's not just guys who do this. Think of characters like Thor, Loki, the cap, Sasuke, really any popular anime character and girls go nuts as well. Maul cosplay' s page is a great example. Just so happens girls get off a bit easier because they don't really have to be toned or work out to get the same treatment. Girls are just as thirst as men though. Everyone is thirsty.

Of course women are thirsty, but I guess fortunately if there are male equivalents of thotplayers they don't get as much attention. Fortunately.

Truly my main point was why the fuck are these guys who give even ugly girls like Miko a platform, or the guys who pay these "cosplayers" to play a game with them. Isn't that legitimate obsession?

You're letting it affect you too much. So what if there are girls selling pictures of themselves in cosplay?

It's one thing to be curious and think why there are men/women paying them, but you said this makes you __depressed__. Just think about it. Someone is sending pics of themselves to another one. You probably don't know both of them. Why does it bothers you?

Honestly though, who cares, sex sells and always will unless there is a giant culture shift that would take 50+ years to change, even then, it goes deeper in the fact that we need sex to survive. And it feels good.

I don't know where you live, but I think both assumptions are debatable (1. that 'this' is the main representation of cosplay today, and 2. that this is depressing by default)

> I also have a tendency to get down when people do things I don't understand, which I admit is my own flaw more than anything else.
Okay, this is a habit that you could look into changing. The reason is, if you 'decide' how to feel based on things you can't control (for example, "costhots"), then you're building yourself a road to depression. To stop this feeling of depression, it's crucial that you don't let these things affect you. So, instead of anguish, a better reaction would be "meh, whatever, I'll just cosplay what I want"

Focus on what's directly under your control, because then you can work on feeling better with yourself, anon. For example, if what made you depressed was something like, idk, "being overweight", that's certainly easier to change than people selling pics of themselves in the Internet, right?

>> No.9852523

I meant nerd safe space as the con itself. Not that it acually is. Safe spaces do not exist.

well the general basics for a more normal guy would be that, whether he knows it or not, he believes that he is the catch. You are supposed to try and get his attention, but he should be the one to try and ask you out. For a more introvert type, you will most likely be doing all the work and from that he will find a reliance on you. That may not always be good for a relationship.
Another thing in general is to try and find a guy who has goals in life. A dream. Something that will take years to achieve, AND they MUST work towards it. A man with no goals has no life.
About topics, hold off any sex stuff for about 3 days at least if you text fast, unless he brings it up. You can most likely talk to him about anything, I managed to have a delightful conversation with my ex about clouds. It's really easy for just the casual stuff. For your more designated interests, jfash, if they don't already know it I'd suggest show them that you are into it about 8 hours from when the conversation started, no matter how fast or slow you guys talk. See if he takes any interests at all (we also like to play coy and dumb about interests so watch out), and if in the next two days he doesn't seem to even take any interests just don't bother with that. Unless if you feel there is something there, like a caring for eachother. He can learn to care about you and from you into your interests. This is a more slow process but overall better in the long term.
As for the gamer bit, most guys play video games, but some are just into the yearly cycles of games while others are fans of companies, then fans of exclusive games. I wouldn't recommend getting someone who still argues about fallout 3 vs nv, for example. I'm one of those guys, I do that with lots of other old games, and I would not find myself attractive if I was a woman. Nor would I find those who i argue about this with attractive. If this is your type, go to a metal concert to find this type of guy, good overlap generally.

>> No.9852608

Of course, there are cons as well. Which hey go to one and see if you like the guys there.

I feel like moving to the USA ended up killing the fun in lolita for me.
I mean, it was a good choice overall, I have a great job, I make more money than I could ever hope for where I came from, my husband and I are happy, we travel a lot and I'm very pleased with life overall... But I find it very hard to get myself to dress up on the my free time, as well as spend a few hours speaking a language that's not my native one (so I'm double-checking everything I say) with girls I don't know, who already have their own friends in the community... They're all really nice, don't get me wrong, it's just tough. So I find myself skipping meets all the time and spending time with friends who speak my language instead. But they're not geeks at all, and dressing up with them would just look awkward and would make me feel out of place...

Oh they like feminine style, they just don't like calling it or admitting it's feminine because then it's uncool. Obviously anything feminine that guys also like is immediately for everyone (especially guys) and not for women.

I honestly just want to die
I love lolita, but it only gives me temporary happiness, I always end up back where I started, the last three years have been full of exhaustion and self hatred, I can’t stand this anymore but I’m too much of a pussy to just Kill myself, I just want to be happy, I want to be able to look at myself without breaking into tears, I want to feel okay without being hungry, I want to not nearly pass out when I stand up, I want the motivation that I once had when I was a child, I’ll never have that. What’s the point of even being alive when the only thing you can successfully do is hurt others. I just want to wither away, I want to end everything, I’m so tired, when I say I’m tired people assume I want sleep, what I mean is that I’m just tired of everything, breathing, eating, blinking, talking, seeing, I hate it all, I just want to end everything so I can finally stop feeling pain. But I’m too much of a failure to even kill myself
