So I recently met up with a friend I've been talking to a few weeks online and while we where talking she told me about her friendgroup and what they do together etc. Just exactly that kinda stuff I've wanted for years but didn't even think really exist. Some wholesome weeb trash friends whom one can cosplay with, go to cons and so on. I never had any friends that where particularly into cosplay and only ever went to cons with my cousins, whos a real pain most of the time. Everyone of her friends sounds like such nice people and I kinda wanna be included but don't wanna be that weird guy that just kinda latches on to them. Idk what to do, this is probably my only chance to finally fulfill that one dream of mine and I really dont wanna fuck it up.

Just ask a week before the convention if she wants to meet up with you there, or if that's too awkward, just wait until the convention itself and hope you find her there.

The easiest moment to join that grp is probably during a convention rather than outside meets,
it's a lot more natural to go with your friend and meet the other friends just like that, it's partly what people long for at conventions.
I met my current friends at a hotel room party at a con that way 3 months ago.

Just have her introduce you to her friend group? Just tell her that her group of friends sound cool and you wouldn't mind hanging around with them if that's ok.

I know this is a really fucking stupid awful heartless feel but I’m kind of jelly of all the girls in my comm who have husbands/boyfriends who buy them whatever they want while they spend all their time at home enjoying their hobbies, not having to work, because they’re chronically ill. They’re all invisible illnesses that they rarely talk about so it’s easy for me to forget that these girls are probably suffering. But from their instagrams, on which two of them post daily and the third every other day, it looks like all their days are spent wearing lolita and crafting and going for walks and meeting friends at cute cafes. Meanwhile I work full time at a job I hate just to pay the bills and pay off my student loans. I’m also exhausted all the time, though that’s most likely from work and nothing medical. Sometimes I wish it were a medical issue so I’d have an excuse to quit my job and stay home.

>inb4 “wow you’re a shit”
I know, which is why I’d never express this stupid feel anywhere but 4chan.

>> No.9887938

I sympathize anon. One of my friends lives in another country and gets more in disability for their anxiety and depression than my diagnosed anxious/depressed ass makes at a multi-million dollar company, busting my ass 40hr/week. They send me messages all day about what they're buying or looking at buying. They have a paid-off residence, and a husband that supports them doing what would be a minimum wage job here, also making much more than me after tax, so they use their disability money for fun stuff, and I'm glad they're happy but like... it can be crushing

>chronically ill
>it looks like all their days are spent wearing lolita and crafting and going for walks and meeting friends at cute cafes
Can guarantee by 99% they're not actually ill like they claim to be. Sure it's an individual thing, but typically when you're chronically ill you fucking suffer every day and wish you weren't ill; taking full advantage of your "illness" to sit back and be spoiled by your s/o is a sign you're probably just fucking lazy.

>>9887940
Usually it means things like chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis or fibromyalgia, a debilitating condition of some sort that isn't visible; the latter is more common for some reason, which is hilarious considering the fact actual fibromyalgia pain is equated to pain caused by cancer. Again, can guarantee these bitches don't have this level of pain.

Remember that insta is all what you put online, so it isn’t actually how they live their lives. An example is k8, she posts often but also is sick enough she goes to the hospital every month or so. Her daily life is painful but you wouldn’t know it looking at her pics casually.

>be less wild
...Elaborate? Do you mean wearing something less OTT? I can sort of understand that, some normies are put off by the idea of being seen with a floofy frilly cupcake in public and it's not the end of the world to be considerate of that. That said, while I don't wear sweet lolita or fairy kei so I don't typically face this issue, I wouldn't drop my frills completely just because someone else is put off by it. I suggest you tone it down a bit as much as you can when you're around her, if only to be considerate, though to be fair I don't know what your wardrobe is like so I'm not completely sure you can tone it down at all (i.e. there's only so much you can do to tone down AP's pastel vomit prints).

There’s this girl that I met briefly at a convention, and then added on Facebook and chatted with her for a few months. I found out that we both like jfash and we don’t live too far from each other, so we agreed to meet up and go shopping together. I was nervous that she’d turn out to be a weirdo, because I’ve had bad experiences with meeting people outside of cons before. But she’s an absolutely lovely person and I had so much fun.

It's really absurd yes, but my fiance is super protective of his family because they're all women (his dad is elsewhere) so he's like the only guy around.

It's like you're safe as long as you wear jeans, but once you wear lolita people will judge every tiny thing like your appearance, manner of walking, talking, your friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, weight, age, habits, etc. Moreover, people are supposed to stay calm and just let some twat boosting her painful self-esteem by shitting on others.

An older guy I met on holidays turned out to be super rich ( verified ) and we've been chatting on and off for a year. He really wants a new trophy wife to spoil, pamper, have kids and presumably sex with in his NY and LA homes. He's got an Asian background so the wife doing nothing is standard and expected to him.

Today he offered to pay for all my flights to visit for a week. Honestly he'd love me to be his wife but knows that's moving quick but will I consider it?

Idefk. I don't get rapey vibes from him, is 1yr plus a long game rape plan? Do I want to be a trophy wife? I mean I'd like to in a perfect world but I definitely don't love the guy. But the idea of coasting through life buying whatever I want while I get supported is pretty tempting. I don't want to be a shit human being though. Is it worth considering?

I was going to reply, but >>9888673 said everything I'd like to say. A person who's going to support you like this will never treat you as equal, is it an attitude you want to receive? Although, he might not either if you make less money than he, but it's still different thing. Also, are you sure you're going to respect yourself being just a housewife? I mean, shitty office work might not be the goal of your life, but at the end of the day buying shit for your own money is amazing empowering thing. Are you ready to lose it?
But first of all make sure it's serious thing. It may happend he's not going to marry at all, he's just messing with you for fun. Moreover, he might have a dozen of dummies like you to play with. Keep your eyes open!

Also, my five cents for that "rapey" thing. Recently I've heard a story of girl, who's married with a known artist from LA and moved to his place. Some time ago she was found dead in his house, absolutely bloodless after 8 hours of tortures. Idk why am I saying this, just keep it in mind.

I'm planning to move in with my gf in another country but my asshole of a father cheated on my mom just now and I feel guilty leaving her and my two brothers behind.
All that because he couldnt fuck her due to her health problem. Fuck men,they're such fucking garbage that can't think with anything but their dick. (yeah i know "not all guys are the same" but a good portion is including this fucker)
At least now I can say "I don't listen to cheaters" or "don't you have a sidehoe to fuck" whenever he's being a dick about me wearing lolita.
I'm having second thoughts about leaving my poor mother until the whole ordeal is over and done. She already has so much to worry about,she's so stressed. To think she was always so loyal,loving and hardworking. Fuck him.

Thanks...I'm doing my best. She was there for me when i was at the very bottom. Our situation is complicated to explain.

But I'm at peace knowing they're good boys and love her. And she doesn't make enough to sustain all of us (i'm currently searching for a job,i'm ill so i'm "limited",it sucks ass) and I doubt I'll have enough money to do that given how far we're moving (she's a whole continent away and it's impossible for her to come live here).

In what way? Do they expect you to dress normie when you hang out with them? Because you're not obligated to if that's not what you want; lolita fashion isn't only for lolita meetups, after all.

That's pretty strange. If someone wants to quit that's fine, but trying to get others to follow them is... I don't know. Just strange.
What makes you think this is what they're doing?
>they make me feel like I am not "loyal" to them as a friend
Now this is downright shitty if it's true. Like I said before, they don't have to like lolita if it's not their thing anymore but you're not obligated to drop something you love just to please them. Again I wonder, what do they do or say that makes you feel this way?

I do too. I never throw away anything brand related, but sometimes I get flyers, tote bags or postcards when I buy from brand directly. I don't want that stuff so I put it with things I sell as a surprise. If the buyer doesn't want it either they can just do the same.

Reads to me like “Oh you’re planning a lolita meetup? I want to go but you shouldn’t make it a community meetup or wear anything that stands out, i.e. lolita”. The last part of course depends on anon’s style because some forms of lolita stand out more than others, but even as a toned-down classic-anon I’ve heard “don’t stand out” as code for “don’t wear your Japanese dresses” plenty of times. So to me it sounds not like anon doesn’t want to hang out with her ex-lolita friends, but like her ex-lolita friends don’t want her to wear lolita or organise stuff for the comm.

Today I decided to take a break from lolita. I need to clarify, I'm not leaving. I'm totally not ready to let the things I own go. At another hand I figured out I was shoehorning myself into fashion so long I stopped feeling anything about it. Today I was lurking for leathers by AllSaints and somehow I felt that new cute jacket will make me much happier than brand piece for the same price. There are a few dresses I was eyeing lately, and they are still in stock, but idk. I do it out of habit, I just don't feel it anymore. Maybe, I'll be back later.

I need to get this off my chest or it feels like I'll explode. I feel like no one else in my friend group will care. The only way I can say this is related is that I've helped this girl (I'll refer as C I guess) with props and armor pieces in cosplay.

So i like C. me and C are friends and I asked her out. She said yes and we had gone out a couple of times. We both have great times but C broke it off saying she was emotionally unavailable. I get that and I'm not going to force anything so I agree to break it off.

Fast forward to less than two weeks later and she's gushing about this guy she met playing a game who she says sounds like a character in it (I think it's a stretch but w/e). At first it was kinda funny until most of the conversations we had were oddly sexually charged concerning him. That hurt but C's an adult who can do what she wants.

Later friends play online detective and they find out he's either in highschool or fresh out of high school (we're late 20s). They relay this to C and nothing has changed. Now this entire situation feels creepy.

Then subtract 500 cals from your adjusted BMR. That's how much you should set your calorie limit per day to to lose 1 lb per week. Subtract 750 cals for 1.5 lbs per week. Do not eat less than 1200 calories a day.

I have a friend like this. For over seven years she’s been talking about how many awesome cosplays she’s going to do once she’s skinny, while putting zero effort into actually losing weight. It’s like she thinks talking about weightloss itself counts as exercise and means that she gets to reward herself with extra Starbucks and dessert. She keeps flip-flopping between “I just have huge tiddies that make it hard to fit stuff, at least I’m not built like a teenage boy lol” and “wah I’m so fat and I wish I was skinny like you but I actually enjoy food uwu too bad”. She often talks about wanting to do matching cosplays, then backs out after I’ve already bought the fabric because she feels too fat. But at the same time she’s been making a solo cosplay to wear and spends the entire week before the con talking about how hot she’ll look in it, while I re-wear something from a previous year. Then when I get more photo requests than she does (at least in part because my craftsmanship and wig styling is objectively better than hers tbqhsenpai) she gets upset again and talks about how unfair it is that I get more attention solely because I’m skinny. She calls me a liar when I compliment her and unsupportive when I don’t. It often feels like she expects me to lose her weight for her; when I don’t talk about weight loss with her I’m again being unsupportive but when I give advice or offer to go to the gym together I’m apparently pressuring her and expecting too much. It’s honestly fucking exhausting, but she’s been my best friend since high school and the only friend I have who likes cons and cosplay.

The only girls who gain on 1300 kcals are girls who are already very petite, which knocks off about 95% of the population.

If I use myself as an example, I would have to be 100 lbs at 5'4" and 22 year's old to have a bmr of 1287 and then I multiply it 1.2 for sedentary burn rates and I still wouldn't gain weight eating 1300 cals. And at that weight I would be classed as underweight by bmi.

That doesn't include other factors that can lower your bmr, but again that's on a person by person basis.

It would be fair to say that the do not eat less really really doesn't apply to the 3% of the population of girls below this threshold so don't get your petty in a twist.

General guidelines don't have to cater to every possibility or minority of a group. People like >>9889869 are the exception who prove the rule. I also didn't include people with thyroid problems or medications that cause weight gain, because again, those are NOT the majority.

My only point (when agreeing with you, which seems to have gone over your head) is that that guideline only doesn't work for people who are already underweight or extremely short. Which is an extremely small % of the population.

You don't overeat, work two jobs, and you still find time to exercise 4 days a week? You're life sounds monotonous. Take my advice with a grain of salt, but consider shaking things up. Work out 4 days one week, and take 2 of hard cardio the next. Mix up your diet, and the times of day you eat. If you follow a strict diet, make it crazy. If you can say, "I eat exactly 1,500 per day," then vary it. Eat 1,200 one day, 1,600 the next, and 1,000 the day after. Our metabolism can get used to the same schedule, and will adapt over time to account for it exactly. The body is amazing, really. Switching up your schedule and diet can keep your metabolism in high gear. Again, take it with a grain of salt, but if nothing else works, try it.

I do - but I haven't seen anything pop up in other brands that I like. Meta is my favorite brand, but nothing appealing is on their online shop or secondhand to me.

My last hope is new AP, but maintenance.
It's also got to be something "special" - or my parents won't buy it. They want it to be super special. To them, that might mean expensive and super pretty.
Blouses and etc are out of the question because they're not any "dream" items and I buy them myself, and I absolutely hate skirts (I'm shaped like a box, they're not flattering). They pretty much just agreed to a dress set, and that's it. My mother even said "don't get a bunch of little things, just one big thing and that's it." Since blouses, skirts, and oldschool dresses are what I buy on my own because they're not expensive (and oldschool dresses are just so wearable) they probably wouldn't get me anything like that.

Blouses are definitely wonderful don't get me wrong, and I could use more brand blouses (it's a struggle as someone with cow tits but small waist, nothing fits my fucking tits without shirring), but I do think my parents would deem blouses as "not important" enough. So really a dress, headbow, socks set is what I'm going to end up with. Just so difficult to find anything once I have the money, yet when I don't have money, everything I want pops up..

This is why I still hold the opinion that simple solids are the best starting pieces for newbies. Don't worry about themes right now, just consider the substyle you want to try first and the designs that you like, while taking your own measurements into consideration of course - i.e. if you like classic but can't fit into MM, look into VM or IW instead.
Keep in mind that you might make some errors, especially when it comes to how things fit you, but trial and error is a great way to learn.
Anyway, decide on your favorite substyle, pick a base color (white for sweet or gothic, offwhite/beige for classic, or black for any of them) with which you'll pick out your first blouse, socks, etc., and then pick out a color you like, for your main piece and accessories.
It might sound a bit too much like a formula but these are good, simple guidelines to follow when you're a beginner and not sure where or how to start. Also, personally I recommend brand as a starting point, either secondhand or new depending on how much you can and are willing to spend.
Good luck!

I'm looking into what masculine counterparts to Lolita are, as dressing up and going to a get together with predominantly ladies actually sounds cool, and not mainly because of all the females. I actually feel like an aristocratic Victorian type look would be cool. But, as far as the GF side of the house goes, I'm just fat. I don't deserve to have a wonderful person in my life, but losing weight will help my odds.

Not with this attitude you don't. First rule to loving someone else genuinely is to love and respect yourself, anon. You won't find the best if you don't believe that you deserve the best.
Look into wearing ouji, aristocrat, or Victorian dandy, start loving yourself and you might meet the lolita of your dreams.

Dear single pringle
Tell your friends how you feel. If they keep bringing their boyfriends along to everything it will greatly hamper your friendship in the long run. We all act differently depending on the company, and that includes both you and your friend when the boyfriend is nearby.

As someone with a clingy boyfriend, who I'm practically married to, I would appreciate to get some heads up. Recently I was going to hang out with a friend of mine, and my bf asked if he could join. Because of a tiny gut feeling I denied him that, and admitted that it was a little "cold." Later with my friend it turned out she really needed to talk about something she simply couldn't have mentioned with him around. My gut had been right.

Consider asking them "Hey, do you want to do something with just the two of us?" Suggest an activity such as tea or whatever it is you and your friends feel comfortable doing. By specifying the two of you it's not inherently evident who you're excluding, but sends the message through. With that objective/excuse in mind your friend will be inclined to say no if her boyfriend asks to join.

I wish you the best of luck
Good Gut Anon

Yeah, but the single pringle had the exact problem that her friends keep allowing their clingy boyfriends to come along.

To be honest my scenario was more about not letting him stay. My friend and my boyfriend are part of a roleplaying campaign my brother hosts. After the session was over my friend had asked to sleep over in the guest rooms, allowing for a little slumber party before that. My boyfriend who was already at my house, and very much used to sharing my bed before/after roleplaying, asked if he could stay also. I said no and sent him home because of my gut feeling.

Forgive me for simplifying my problems and trying to relate to the anon I'm replying to.
