People really hate feel threads and looking at this one's posts, you might see why. But you know, I think this board needs threads like these as containment threads. For venting, whining, petty arguing, stupidity, etc. For the dumb feels and stupid stories and lolita memes and even the crossboarders. These are the containment board's containment threads. And they're ironically the fastest moving threads on the entire board, probably because they allow the dumping of all the feelings welled up, be they anger, sadness, spite, jealousy, joy, excitement, anxiety, whatever.

I like these threads. I think they make the rest of cgl better because they help to keep the rest clean.

I just got an amazing dress in the mail and I'll be able to pick it up at the post office tomorrow! It's my first velveteen piece. I hope to god it'll fit and I'm really excited. Customs left me with a shitton of money (way more than the 20% they should take according to the website but I had this before and they always play off the extra 40% as "service costs") but if it fits as nicely as I think it will it's definitely worth it.

I assume you're talking about the context of cosplaying opposed to fashion in general. Uh, sheer leggings will hide them if it's something you don't want immortalized in picture, and nobody has to know why you're wearing them. It's true that indoor lighting can make scarring way more visible. Otherwise, since they aren't raised, you could use a makeup like Kat Von D's stuff to cover tattoos or even regular concealer if they're light enough. You'd just want to use some sort of fixative so it doesn't rub off throughout the day. That might be a better option if you don't want to wear leggings with your costume.

It doesn't seem bad. Judging by the right picture, make up should hide them pretty well, since they're so small.

She doesn’t make cosplays, and i’ve made a couple for her just so i’d have someone to cosplay with for fun, but on more than one occasion of suggesting other ideas to her i’ve been told “well that doesn’t look THAT hard,” quickly backtracked by a, “but i don’t sew, so.” It’s a bit irritating but i put up with it cause she’s my friend, but i guess i don’t necessarily plan on bringing it up to her unless she does it again.

Yeah they could at least take better pictures. I've bought things from both WW and CC that were marked mid tier and ended up looking worse than expected.

Why is wig styling so fucking hard? All the tutorials I watch make it look so simple but when I tried it it just turned out awful. This is my first time cosplaying a character that needs more than just a trim to the bangs and the wig is just driving me crazy. I'm probably going to have to wash the hairspray out and restyle this wig like ten times before I get it right.

You aren't getting laid at the convention unless it's a party. I don't think that's what you're trying to do, but that's the best option if you wanted a quick lay. I know plenty who "hook up" through conventions, but that is more realistically explained, "I met them through a convention, we exchanged contact information (social media), and the magic happened after the convention was far gone." You got a smart phone and social media? (Instagram or FB?) If they're being friendly, talk to them, and exchange profiles before you part ways. This is a very simple, "Aye, what's your IG handle?" It could be, "You got FB?" The conversation will go smoothly, you'll add them there on the spot, and you'll part ways. One of two things will happen. You'll find they've either added you back over the next few days or they've ignored you. If the prior happens, go from there! IM them, get to know them, and eventually ask them out. It's polite, it's respectable, and it's private so it doesn't leave anyone feeling uncomfortable in public.

I don't think so. I think it's very difficult for men and women to be around each other consistently without developing feelings for each other's provided both are of average attractiveness.

I'm that way with women, I want to talk to a woman first. Her hygiene and health matter more than her innate looks, and even within that, I'm ok bending my standards for a chubby girl if I like her. While I can find some girls like that attractive, I feel like I avoid them more often than not because shoveling junk food and alcohol into your system is becoming a turn off for me. So, in a sense, I have a type, but much more of that falls on mannerisms and habits. I try not to be judgemental, but it's hard to reconcile these things, and as a result I feel conflicted- I'm of the mind that men and women get together to help improve each other's lives, but I also don't think you should be looking for a date if you expect your girlfriend to fix your life and make it all better.

Being able to distract from your problems onto your gf is actually a thing, that makes it all better.

Just remember what you said, people come together to help improve each other's lives. Unless you're aiming to waifu Buddha himself, your next gf is likely to have her flaws, same as you probably do some things that annoy other people. Try to remember to be kind and forgiving towards other people. If you pressure girls into becoming flawless so you can have your perfect waifu then that's really no different than those dudes who think getting a gf will solve all their personal problems.

You seem to recognize my introspection at it's core. I look at my own flaws the same way I look at a stranger's, so my attitude generally has made me not want to date. I'd say at my age, I've done the right thing for the wrong reason. I personally fear; that my struggles will drive away women, who would otherwise enjoy me at face value, until they do see my underlying problems. I think this question in particular, was probably the biggest contributor to causing the girl I was dating last to ghost me. I think she thought I was crazy, or a mean bastard.

If its minor stuff like "man I hate my job" or "boy I hate my neighbor" that's one thing, everyone has things to bitch about.

As the guy who started this discussion, one thought I've had that's been at the forefront of my mind is five star General Ulysses S.

I cannot reconcile this thought in my mind with my habit of itemizing people's actions.

nayrt, but no. He was a fully functioning dude before he met his girl, and he really only got depressed after being seperated from his closest loved ones, which is enough is make anyone depressed.

Contrast that with the dudes who are depressed before even meeting a girl, and tell themselves they can be happy if they can find a gf that “makes” them happy. That’s basically dumping all responsibility for their own mental wellbeing on another person, who themselves probably have their own issues. At least the drug addicts in your case are looking for their own happiness by themselves (though in the wrong places) and not making someone else spoonfeed it to them.

I mean, if you happen to find another co-dependent who happened to need your particular brand of needyness, maybe the relationship could work out. Everyone else, upon realising that they’re now responsible for all of the work in keeping two grown adults happy, will probably run for the hills. No one sane wants that kind of burden, thanks.
I mean, if you find another co-dependent who perfectly matched up with your own dependence it could maybe succeed. Everybody else is going to run away from you though. Nobody wants to do1000% of the work in a relationship, male or female.

First impressions are extremely important. Once you're slotted in the bottom category it's pretty much impossible to climb up, dudes who think "I'll win her over" have been watching too much anime, no amount of effort or time or grand gestures will turn her opinion around.

There's never just one easy answer.
I have a handful of friends and they're almost all men.
They know I have a bf and I'm more into women anyways, they know they have no chance even if I was single.
Women will either keep friends they know are comfortable being in the friend zone, or they'll eventually drop them, understanding that there's sexual tension they'll never fulfill. I've done it myself.
Maybe you're thirsty and just don't realize how much it's playing into your actions and conversation.
Women do hold male friendships, but not all of them are comfortable with the idea of stringing along someone like that.

Friendships rely on being vulnerable if you want to keep them going otherwise they just end up puttering out into acquaintance-ships.
Having to keep your guard up when you're out having fun with someone is really exhausting, I don't go to a lot of lolita meets because of it and I'd definitely reconsider a friendship if I found myself doing the same thing with someone I hang with on a regular basis.

That being said, if some chick you're doing favors for never returns the effort or doesn't have a discussion with you about your friendzone, she's playing you and you ought to drop that time waster immediately.

Alright, you're on the right boat with the no touching policy, but you might want to rethink the rest of what you said... You're coming off fake. Women have opinions, they have political views, and you should too. It shouldn't be an issue unless you believe in scientific racism or something. Also, no cursing? Most women curse even if they don't regularly talk like a sailor. Really, touching and sexual discussion are the only two places you can't go, and even the latter is dependent on the situation. (If a group is talking about sex then it is okay to likewise discuss sex.) Try being a little more yourself in the sense of speaking your mind, letting that curse word slip, and the sort. Sure, you might offend a couple people, but you'll have better luck in the long run. It is actually unintentionally sexist to temper your speech just because you're speaking to a woman. Not touching people is just common sense for men and women, and not discussing sex out of the blue is polite. Past that, you're just stunting your personality, and coming off shallow.

True friendships are between people who can disagree with one another.

My hobbies are all either solitary or 99.7% male. The remaining 0.3% are gfs that get dragged along and have no interest in actually being there or talking to anyone.
Anime cons are the only thing I do that has a substantial female population but that's also out because nobody I meet at my local con lives anywhere near me so at best we'd only see each other once a year.
>High standards
My standards are as follows:
-Be female
-Be able to hold a conversation
1. A conversation about more than what you saw on TV last night
2. Without looking at your phone every 30 seconds
-Don't be a hamplanet

>>9870308

I don't know what to do here. If I open up too much I wind up offending them somehow (being conservative in the Seattle area is a death sentence) and then they ghost me but if I don't then they get bored and ghost me. It'd be nice if I could find a happy medium with the same girl but that's obviously not going to happen so I have to meet and connect with a new girl every time and in my day to day life that's an extremely tall order.

You understand that it's on you to be interesting too and keep them engaged enough to want to look at their phone, right? Discussing television is a pretty normal icebreaker, as well. You have to sustain the conversation long enough to get past that. It's a two way street, baby.

I don't have TV. It'd be a one-sided conversation of them telling me about the latest episode of some show I've never even heard of. I'm well aware that I also have to be interesting and I'm terrible at it because nobody is intetested in what I have to say unless I piggyback off of whatever subject they decided to pick. Girls don't want to talk about cars or guns or camping or paintball or any anime that isn't mainstream flavor-of-the-month garbage.
I don't know, there just isn't much common ground between me and most of the girls I meet and the ones that do share some of my interests aren't very good at talking about them.

Everyone tells you you should tell the person to their face why you don't want to hang out with them anymore but this guy has a temper like I already mentioned and I was a bit afraid what his reaction would be.

So how do I force myself to be interested in things?

>> No.9870560

I went to a con for the first time a few months ago and enjoyed it, but I felt really out of place because I wasn't cosplaying and was just hanging out. I wanna cosplay for an upcoming con. But I feel really anxious about it. I found a character I wanted to cosplay, only thing is he doesn't wear a shirt. I'm not insecure of my body, but I am about the way I might be perceived for cosplaying this character. The group I was with was mostly girls, and I felt totally comfortable because I was just wearing casual clothes. I just feel like cosplaying a shirtless character in a group of girls is a really bad look and I'm shitting myself just thinking about it. Am I overthinking this?

From an outside perspective, being a shirtless dude in a group of girls is probably the best position you can be in as far as whether or not you'll be viewed negatively, followed by being a shirtless dude in a group of dudes, followed by 50 feet of shit, followed by being a lone shirtless dude. As long as your group is ok with it I'd say you're good to go.

Probably don't write off those all of those girls interested in your hobbies as just the 'gf' of someone in the hobby, but that's super situational, since I don't even know what the fuck you play.
