I cant even wear casual lolita without someone getting uppity. Maybe it's just because it's a big city? I lived in a small town before I moved here. I don't have much experience with city people

Well, the sad part is the people who are 'darker' who don't harass you likely go unnoticed. So, you don't think about those who do not. Try not to let people who do harass you change your opinion of those who do not.

Also, listen to some rap music. Realize that they aren't just calling women bitches and hoes for show. There really are subcultures that it is common to treat women like dirt. That's not anything to do with color at all. It's more to do with locality which just sometimes unfortunately happens to have concentrations of people of a certain color.

It's not the color of their skin that causes them to harass people. It's that individual's viewpoint. Don't let it affect your view of a 'race', just be like, 'that individual is a scumbag'.

Another example, rednecks/hillbillies. Most people think of 'white' as country. Even though darker people do live in those areas, and can act the same. However, most associate it with 'white' simply because there happens to be a lot of white people in that particular area.

Obviously not every white person is a hillbilly redneck nor do you instantly think a white person will be a hillbilly fuck. Sage for kind of OT in my case.

Also remember it's not as safe to walk in most cities as it is in a rural area. I'm not sure if you are solely relying on public transit and walking, but consider that you may need to solely use a car or taxi service when you are wearing lolita.

Also get familiar with your city, ask people about it, they may say, 'Oh yeah, you don't want to walk down so-and-so street unless you have to because of the crowd that hangs around there. Walk down this neighborhood instead.' And so on and so forth.

Be aware cities are not 'safe'. not if you come from a small town. In a small town with less people, of course you are less likely to come across bad people. LA is a huge city, and one that doesn't exactly have a great reputation.

It's okay to feel frustrated because it sucks to not feel free to express yourself how you want to. Just try to channel your frustration in more productive avenues. Maybe try to focus more on feminism and supporting women, esp woc? As >>9398789 said even within their own communities woc are looked down upon so thinking of it from that pov may help.

Sorry for more liberal social sciences spewing.

I'm going on two vacations this summer but won't be able to wear lolita on either (both super cheap trips where friends who've gone home for the summer have invited me to stay with their family for a week or so). Considering planning another one for myself but not sure if I'll be able to get the time off, and don't really think if it's a good idea to make my first time travelling alone in a foreign country be in an eye-catching fashion. Still really happy and excited because last summer I literally did nothing but stay alone in my room desperately applying for jobs while watching the last of my savings trickle away, so having any disposable income at all is a luxury for me compared to that.

Probs going to try to go to a large lolita event this summer as well (and can even afford to buy-sell a popular release for it), but with the way travel works for that I'll only get to wear lolita to the event itself, and it'll cost me more than the other trips combined for just three nights.

I have no interest in finishing my degree anymore, I chose wrong and I realized way too late since I am in my last class for the major and have one semester of free electives to go. It would be a waste to drop out now and I really don't want to start a new degree, I've found out that school is not for me.
The job I have right now is...not a good job. I struggled for so long to find one and now that I have, I want to quit after one year of working for them; the pay and hours are both garbage. Between school and my job, I have no time and very little money to put toward my cosplays and I haven't worn lolita in forever. It's all really depressing me, specially the cosplay part. It's something I really enjoy doing.
If i quit my job, I won't have the extra money to put toward my hobbies but if I stay, I won't have the time. When it comes to school, if I drop out I'd feel horrible and risk not getting a decent job because I lack a degree but if I do drop out I can focus on looking for a better job and making cosplay.

I also feel like I'm running out of time, like before I know it I'll be too old to cosplay or wear lolita. That's biting hard at me, too.

If you really just have one semester to go, don't drop out. Might seem like a sunk cost fallacy, but you might really regret dropping out in the future so you might as well finish. You can look for a job in a few months after your studies are finished.

Also, unless you really need the hobby money to motivate yourself or the job reference to help you find a new job, I'd suggest maybe quitting your job to make it easier to get through uni. I was in a similar situation to you for a really long time (working a horrible job that was taking up all my time and negatively impacting on my studies because without it I'd have no money for lolita, even though it meant I had no time for lolita) and I was so much happier and found the course load much easier to manage when I quit.

No matter where you stand on if/when you become "too old", you're not going to become too old over the course of just a few months. Finish your degree.

My cosplays came into the warehouse on Taobao but the QC pics looked like absolute shit compared to the store pics.

I don't normally care how long someone has been in the hobby as long as they dress well and aren't annoying, but I've noticed an increase of girls in my comm who've been into lolita for less than 3 years yet claim to be experts, making incorrect statements and saying that things "have always been this way". One girl said that Bodyline has always been reputable and called another girl a troll for joking about their past as a sex shop. Another claimed that unnaturally coloured wigs have always been the norm and the movement towards more natural styles is a recent phenomenon. It's like they refuse to admit the fashion existed before they got into it. BL reputable when they started lolita? Clearly it was always like that. Pastel wigs common in lolita when they first joined? Every lolita starts out buying a wig before a petticoat. They did, so everyone else must have, too!

Stop making shit up to seem more knowledgeable than you are. Please.

Had to keep it tangentially related there but.... I really don't know what to fucking do about her. We've been best friends for years and years, and she was never this bad. She's just suddenly so much worse. yesterday she got offended because I told her that for the cost of all the new parts she wants to get for her computer, she might as well just get a whole new system, and she literally just stopped talking to me for the rest of the night. I didn't sass her about it, I just informed her gently that the parts were almost as much as a whole new computer.

I live with her, and she's really my only friend, but Jesus fucking Christ, I can't do this anymore.I got her into lolita and makeup, and we have cosplays planned together, but if this is how it's going to be... yikes.

Is there any hope of rehabilitating someone like her? It's only very recently that she's become SO intolerable, and I guess it's probably stress, because she's a senior this year, but that's not an excuse for treating me like a piece of garbage. I have very bad social anxiety, so when she does this, I legitimately believe that I've done something wrong.

NAYRT but oldfag (about 13 years) here. The answer is that it DOESN'T make a difference. This is anecdotal, but a girl joined our comm recently who looks on point all the time. When I asked her how long she's been in the fashion, she told me that it's been less than a year and she only knew about it a year prior to that. She knows her stuff about our fashion's history, knows a decent amount about old releases, and knows about the big lolita icons who aren't active today. She's a better dresser than some of the other oldfags in our community too, and dare I say a lot more tolerable.

The only difference MIGHT be that oldfags would know more about older releases and about how lolita was less accessible. So, as a result of that, it took some of us a longer time to not be itas because our resources were sparse. BUT, nowadays, resources are everywhere and newbies are spoonfed information. And that's a great thing! Because it means that people who are willing to learn are able to excel at a far greater speed than we were.

4 years TODAY is plenty of time to be a well-educated lolita. Hell, if someone can get a fucking college degree in four years, they should be able to learn about a fashion in that time or FAR less.

tl;dr: other oldfag-chan is just salty that new lolitas have a greater wealth of info than we did in ye olden days. it's something we should be celebrating, not whining about.

I found it annoying that they had ghosted every con we've been to. They also never wanted to pay for anything because they were "broke" as in too broke for dinner but they still have enough for figures.

This last con was new for them and they weren't sure how easy it would be to ghost. I said it was very easy when in reality security is very tight. They really weren't bad people, just cheap. They never even tried to bum food off of anyone.

I haven't bought anything for myself in a year. All I want is to buy a pair of fucking Teja Jamilla tights to get more wear out of several matching jsks/blouses but I haven't been paid in months. My last job made me work for nothing for 4 months. The job before that didn't pay me for 3 months and when I left, everyone made me feel like I was being stupid and entitled for 'burning bridges'; if I had not put up with I think a bit longer things would have worked out. Bullshit.

I didn't win a scholarship to a top private school, go to college and volunteer for 10 years of my life to be made a slave. I think I deserve a wage now. Some days I have to shift 2 metric tonnes by hand by myself. I've broken two bones on the job, I need surgery on my knee and I might have ovarian cancer but I was made to cancel all my hospital appointments due to lack of staff. I'm lucky if my feet aren't bleeding when I get home. I've had no heating/hot water all winter and my lunch today was a plain slice of bread that expired 5 days ago. I can't stand selling any more of the burando I have left for train fare as it is the only thing that I have to treat myself, even if I barely get to wear Lolita because I have to work 7 days in a row, then I'm either too exhausted to go out or meets never fall on a day off (I'm on a weird rota).

I feel like being on this board for so long has ruined me.
I've always had pretty harsh features. Big nose, angular face, small eyes, etc. All I've ever wanted to be is cute. I've been so perpetually jealous of big eyed, soft featured, pretty girls and I feel like I never fit in. I know we have fairly high standards here and since I've been on this board since I was a young teen it's influenced how I've looked at myself as I grew up.
I should really resign myself to just cosplaying as boys but I still want to be the pretty girl.

She's less interested in conventions than I am, and she's sort of habitually "not present" (ie, when she's hanging out with me she'll be texting other people, when I'm not with her she'll be texting me about whatever event she's at) so I'm not sure how effective those strategies. There is a small group of us going though, so I'm hoping she won't be a mopey mess in front of our other friends.

Posted a few threads back about breaking up with my boyfriend and then owing $1500 for a con I'm no longer going to.

talked to my friend who is an attorney and he explained that I don't owe him anything as it's considered a gift and since I already paid this months rent. The only thing I really gotta pay for is utilities. SO that's good. My ex was trying to hold a $600 plane ticket over my head. Every time I tried to pay him back while we were together I was told "don't worry about it".

However I was kicked out of the house and now I have to stay with my old coworkers. My wardrobe has been moved to a storage unit and I can't get into a place unless someone wants me as a roommate and that's hard to get into apparently. Everyone has very specific tastes in people. I have money saved up, but still, getting into a place is hard.

Trying my best though...

I'm so fucking jaded, gulls... I believe people are only interested in what they consider "novel" because it is novel, and then only until the novelty wears off. Then it's just weird again, and they don't adore the creativity that initially drew them to you in the first place anymore, now it just makes them feel self conscious, and instead they want you to "tone it down" and then your friends and instead coworkers are like, "are you depressed, you seem less 'you' lately" and so you go back to that single salarywoman life.

I had a friend like that. She used to be such a cunt to me but i kept excusing her bullshit with
>oh it must be stress

>its just drama with her bf
Not saying your best friend is a cunt but i looked back at my friends behavior and she started to be like that and got worse through highschool/college. Maybe your friend is different... But if you look back honestly at your friendship and you see her using/abusing you then leaving is the best thing you can do for yourself. I got random facebook messages months/years down the road that broke my heart. Basically telling me im selfish and not a good friend for just leaving and not being friends with her anymore.

She actually does get paid well, $100 was because she apparently needed it to fix her car. She always eventually got it back to me, but this time, she just took it and fucked me off.

I asked her what I did wrong, when she exploded at me one day, and she used my crying about being sexually assaulted against me, and told me that I needed to grow up and get over it because 'he was hot'. I asked her to vent about that. And she went on to say she hated me and that I am a terrible person who she never liked, and now that she had enough material on me, she was going to ruin me to all our mutual friends.

it just.. hurt. I still don't know what I did. And her life is going fine, and mine is falling apart, and I don't know what to do. She was my only friend for a reason, and she fucked me off and used things against me. I've been burned like this before, but fuck, this time it was bad.

Sounds as if she liked the guy who assaulted you. It'd explain her outburst, or maybe that she was sexually assaulted and was projecting at you.

That being said, she might seem fine to you right now but I've worked in clubs as a bartender and these girls are a needle poke away from going completely off the deep end. Things may be going bad for you, but if you think you'll have it worse than her in a year or two you have really no idea how these people end up. I'd be surprised if she isn't being pimped out by the person who's paying her yet. Club owners are degenerates, and the people who run Raves are far worse.

I spent my birthday last year alone while he was doing his game night thing. I don't remember if he got me something but we didn't really celebrate.
Sushi is my favorite so I want it on my birthday and he doesn't do fish.

Year before that he acted like a little pissy baby during my birthday outing in front of all my friends and he's very anti social. Or at least with my friends which makes me think he didn't actually like my friends.

We never did anything unless it was planned very far in advance and he never wanted to do anything other than play videogames with his friends in another state.

He also wanted to move to the coast eventually apparently and I don't.

It was more of a 'why complain, he wasn't bad looking. You should be thankful he noticed someone like you' which just hurt. I guess that might be possible, she hangs out with some real sketch people. A guy she had in the car for three hours with us creeped me out, touching me and all that, and I told her, and she just rolled her eyes 'god, you're such a slut! not everyone is interested in you!' not to mention he is seven years older than us. I just got a real weird vibe off of him. And she kissed him and said "yeah lol I have just been sleeping with him sometimes' when he's a convicted felon with armed fucking robbery on his record. I don't know how I didn't see these signs before, it was obvious she was Spiraling out of control.

I thought she was a good friend. But now that I think back, all she did was complain about me. Everything I did was wrong. Even my telling her I was getting my life together, she shit on saying 'you just HAVE to brag after ruining everyone else's day!' what kind of a friend does that? I think she was using me to feel better about herself, and this realization.. it just hurts more than anything she said to me.

Wake up, kiddo. She's not your friend and she never was. You just happened to be around and she could always bum money off of you when needed or get a ride. She used you like a condom, and when she got tired of you, she told you to fuck off.

My aunt is the same type of bitch, and let me tell you; she honestly couldn't care less about you. And that attitude won't be changing for several years til she gets knocked up by some asshole and is forced to bust ass to cover her child/bastard child.

Lesson: Start looking for signs that a person is untrustworthy. See who they hang with. When they're willing to dismiss you and trust others, it's probably time to look elsewhere.

And none of this pity stuff. She obviously has none for you, so put her out of your mind. Waste of time and energy to think about trash like that. Rotten on the inside, regardless of your dreamy silver lining times that she faked niceness just to keep you hooked that come to mind. It was all a ruse.

I do know her ex (I talk to him, he was a nice genuine guy who had her clean; or so he thought) and he took his ring and fucked her off. He deserved better too, because she used him too. she told me that she broke things off, but he just told me that he broke things off, because she cheated on him while high. Good for him.

Well, do you live on the east coast?

If it's your dream, at least keep in mind that an offer stands while you're deciding whether or not to take your chances with this guy. If this guy is who you want to be with, then I hope that things DO work out for you, and he ends up being supportive of your lolita (and other) hobby and isn't some trash guy.

But if things don't work out, would you rather spend some time feeling rejected/depressed and wondering about relationships? Or moving forward with your search for someone that you mutually find happiness with?

The way I figure it, it's best to keep your options open. As long as an offer isn't tying you down, it's best not to immediately reject it, aye?

They are all so cute, gulls. I have a crush now. I'm such a social dummy though, I don't think I could talk to them in a normal conversation.

>>9399908
This is what makes me feel uncomfortable. I didn't recognize two of the girls, but they seemed to know what was going on. That must mean that they talked about what happened with their friends.

Now I'm going to overthink things. What if I didn't drink from my water bottle. What would she have done then? Did she bring other things in preparation so she could meme back at me? I mean she must have thought that it was a very low chance at interacting with me as well, and I while I thought it'd be fun to run into them again I didn't even imagine that it'd happen again.

I feel like most of my lolita friends are way cooler than I am and like they are just humoring me, pretending to be my friends and actually find me really annoying. There isn't much solid proof for me to think this, but it still just eats away at me constantly.

I also got too drunk over the weekend and made a huge ass of myself in front of someone I don't know too well. I am going to be stuck seeing them a bunch at an upcoming con too.

We will have the occasional post of a lonely girl whining that they can never get laid; and the majority will tell them to shut the fuck up, go back to their containment board, and "just learn better makeup (just lift)" or "it's because you never try!" or "You aren't ENTITLED to love! You're so fucking selfish!"

The time of woman as come to an end. I applaud your bf for being one of the forerunners on this magnificent frontier. I, for one, welcome our new waifu overlords.

Like >>9399929 says, it just sounds like lack of practice, or even, depending on how long this has been going on, inadequate socialisation when younger. I was bullied and ostracised from my entire year group in middle/high school and only spoke to one or two kids from other grades, and it resulted in me basically having no idea how to interact with people my own age until after I'd been at university for a while. If it's small talk in general with anyone who isn't a family member, I'd recommend doing some sort of volunteering. You meet a really wide spectrum of age groups from elderly to young teens padding out their extracurriculars, so you get good at small talk with a range of people fast.

Race is not just a difference of skin color.

Some other notable biological differences would be that we have different skull structures, we have different facial features, different races cannot give/receive bone marrow transplants, and many genetic differences, for example sickle cell anemia almost exclusively effects blacks.

Is it unreasonable to claim that perhaps their is an average difference in intelligence, entirely due to biological differences and not socioeconomic?

Blacks on average score lower on IQ tests than whites, even rich black people compared to poor white people, and even black children raised in wealthy white homes.

They lived in Africa uncontacted for hundreds of years and never advanced past stone age level technology, while at the same time whites and East Asians had amazing civilizations and technology.

In the US over 50% of murders are committed by blacks despite them only making up about 13% of the population. They commit crimes at vastly disproportionate rates compared to whites, and you can't blame it on them being poor because many regions in the Appalachias are also extremely poor, but also very white, and low crime.

Hundreds of white women are raped by black men every year, do you know the average number of black girls raped by white men? Literally zero.

Face it, some races are biologically just less intelligent and more prone to commit crime. Those "cultural/regional differences" stem from biological differences.

It's me. This is a predominantly female section of the internet conveniently located on 4chan, it's very attractive to someone who hates women like me.

Sometimes I just need a fresh reminder of how stupid women are, and how modern society has ruined them.

They're whores that exchange their bodies for wealth and status, they sleep with men promiscuously, they flaunt their sexual value, they now freely choose which men get sexual access, and they choose in a way that destroys society and family structure.

They're like children, they are not capable of building a civilization, nor are they capable of maintaining or advancing it. Men built civilization, men invented almost everything, and throughout history the motivation to contribute to society for the large majority of men was the promise of having a wife who would bear his children, have sex with him, and not cheat or divorce (because we had laws harshly punishing adultery, restricting divorce, and in general not letting women freely destroy everything).

Women have destroyed everything regarding marriage, children, and sex. They have destroyed the main pillar of civilization, and men allowed it to happen. I am mad about this everyday, there is no reason to even get a job because of this.

This sounds so much like her I want to puke. She always says she's too busy for anything she says she'll do for me, but then she will sit and play MMOs for 4 hours straight, every single day without fail. She says that it's because she's a senior and she has sooooooo much work to do, but when SHE wants to do shit, it's now or never, if I turn her down she literally has a tantrum. I work two jobs and I have plenty of time in my schedule, she is only taking two classes this semester but I'm supposed to believe she's overrun with work.

She can't admit wrongdoing, she can't handle anyone disagreeing with her, and she can't handle being anything but a victim. She also always blames her depression and anxiety, but she copes suspiciously well. In fact she only ever has issues with it when it's very convenient for her. Meanwhile I'm suffering from debilitating and crippling depression and anxiety that she is intensifying, but I'm expected to be sympathetic towards HER. She does usually come and help me when I'm having a panic attack (I have really low key panic attacks, I just need to lay in bed with someone and have some human contact until I can fall asleep), but half the time she's the cause of the panic attack so I almost feel like she owes me that?

I've been really bad about spending lately.
I've bought at least 3 new dresses, and am pursuing a fourth because it's a high-level dream dress.
The problem is I'm affording it by taking out of my savings. i know it's bad but I'm really only hurting myself.
My bf, who does not save any savings, and also spends a lot on his hobbies, has been getting somewhat passive aggressive towards me for it. I don't blame him. But I can't help myself, it's the only thing that makes me happy anymore.

I'm in a relationship with a guy, and he's honestly the best guy I've ever met. He's really funny, he's also a cosplayer, and he treats me like a princess. I, on the other hand, am not only really bad at showing affection without getting embarrassed, but am a fucking mess. While I've been "happy" because I've made a new friend group and boyfriend after ~4 years of being isolated with my only friend being a really shitty now-ex who treated me like shit, I haven't been going to my classes and got in trouble for being late to work and missed out on a promotion because of it. Granted, I was really sick when I missed most of my classes, but like today I just sort of woke up, saw that I was going to be 10 minutes late, and then went back to bed. Like, he's got his shit together, he's graduated college and has an adult job, and one time he even told off a mutual "friend" about how she needs to get her shit together when she was in a similar situation to mine. It's weird, I'm so happy. I am very VERY happy where I am right now, but my depression is ruining everything.

Get into therapy, anon. And if you're clinically depressed and not on meds, look into whether medication would be the right step for you.

If you love these things in your life and you see your depression ruining them, then protect them by dealing with your depression. Not that it goes away, it doesn't, but therapy will teach you coping mechanisms to keep it from stopping you. Therapy will also give you the opportunity and the tools to work through and understand your road blocks.

If you don't have insurance or don't think you can afford it, look into local options for low income medical and see if they have a behavior health branch, or look into the options available cheap/free through your school. I know two people with medical grants/scholarships going through therapy for depression completely for free, and it is doing both of them a world of good.

also in my experience, my friend didn't get better until she lost my friendship and had to be on her own.

You need to be assertive and put your foot down here. I recommend telling her that you two aren't compatible as roommates, and you want to live somewhere else. Sublease your place out (legally she cannot force you to stay, nor can she refuse to have someone else move in) and find a lease or sublease to take over. That is creating distance between the two of you and can possibly save the friendship. If you're in a university town, it isn't hard to find places still available to sublease or to take over a lease.

It's a lot of work, but you don't deserve to be treated like shit in your own home.

A few weeks ago, I agreed to buy my friend some random shit off of taobao because I thought it would be a nice thing to do and she is too scared to use one. I asked for just the price of the items + shopping service fee.

The money got to me yesterday, but I couldn't pay for the SS because I was super sick. I spent the entire day sleeping. My friend was asking me what's wrong, so I told her I might have mono or strep throat. But she still insisted on finalizing the transactions today. Wtf??? I'm doing her a favor, not a job. Please, learn how to use taobao yourself if you want things done at your pace.

All of this has been rubbing me off the wrong way. She's only been texting me about looking up stuff and taobao and then asking me if the money has arrived in my bank account yet. I don't know, this makes me want to distance myself from her.

I've been drowning in depression and anxiety. Blowing all my money on lolita and cosplay to try and cheer myself up. I've also gained weight from just eating like shit because I don't have energy to cook or care if I'm eating well.

I have a wonderful boyfriend and quite a few friends, not very many close friends though. Anxiety is making me constantly question whether any of them like me or if its all some kind of big joke, and they're all laughing behind my back at how dumb and awkward I am.

I spend most of my free time laying in bed wondering what I did to become this much of an unhappy fuck up.

When you're the general of the military, speaking to the president, in the midst of a potentially nation destroying event, yes you actually do need orders to do stuff. Not to mention it wouldn't make grammatical sense to say "it" without anything establishing what "it" is.

And of course you'd assume the general is a man. National security is important, so why would you ever entrust it to a woman? As you've just demonstrated, they're woefully ignorant of wartime protocol. And also at being clever, and a myriad of other things.

This anon's advice is pretty good >>9401203 I struggled alot with my anxiety and depression and spent years thinking I didn't deserve my boyfriend and friends, and that they were just with me out of pity. My underlying thoughts to everything were always that I was the biggest problem in my own life and that I shouldn't even put effort into anything because I would just mess it up.

After therapy I still get these thoughts and feelings, but I'm able to take a step back, examine them, and not let them get in the way of my life. I'll never stop having them but my quality of life before compared to now is like night and day.

It took me a few sessions to really get into it but starting therapy is one of the best things I ever did for myself. I don't ever think I'll be a well-adjusted, social person. But I can enjoy what I do now.

Usually just lurk these threads since I don't think my problems are ever problematic enough to share, but

I sort of recently hit Christmas cake status, and it got me mentally going over the last couple of years in my head. I moved to a small shit college town (for work not school) and lost the few old friends I had in the process. I have yet to make any new friends here. It's kinda tough to desu. Everyone I work with is older than me by 10+ years and though the students are in my age group, they just view me as staff. I don't get out to cons and I dropped out of lolita years ago and feel like normie routes to friendship will lead me to people who don't have any of those interests in common. I don't have anxiety or any social awkwardness. I just feel like I'm out of opportunities to make friends at my age since I'm done with school and not in the college clubbing culture.

Full time caregiver and RN here, can confirm all of this. Also the older the father is, the more likely the child will have learning dusabilities. So yeah guys can still fathet children when theyre older but the likelyhood of the child either being retarded or disabled in some way goes way up.

Which is worse

Both.
>is one retarded, risky decision better than the other?
No.

Socially, the old guy impregnating young woman is worse because people ignorant of the situation will call him a pedo and rapist, etc even if the girl is in her 20s-30s. Far less likely if the old woman impregnated by young man even if young man is 16/17.

Also, none of this has to do with lolita.

For the rest of the party the two chicks, the dude that invited me and his friends just talked shit about me and kept sneering at me. The sister though kinda caught on and took me under her wings and taught me how to do makeup a little bit and dance. Also she gave me a lap dance.

overall I just feel shitty and tired and dont know how I could've fucked up this badly and how i should've just stayed home and played wow or finished up AMR2 I hope I'm still friends with the stripper though, she was really nice.

I get that you're desperate to make friends, anon, but damn.

Have you tried the friend finder thread?
Where are you located?

>> No. 9408111

>>9407819
I live out in the middle of fucking nowhere so I really doubt friendfinder would work for me. It's funny because I used to be super social and well liked but since I moved to where my college is at I have really no one I actively talk to.

Also now being sober I don't really care especially since they looked like high school kids. It was just a weird shitty night.

>willingly hanging out with these kids
>openly stating that you feel lonely
>going through all this to find friends

I hold a personal belief that actions made during an inebriated state are reflections of the subconscious.
I think you might actually be lonely, anon, and care more than you say.
But that could all just be armchair philosophy, and maybe you really don't care. Either way, post in friend finder thread and message people from there.

Good luck, anon.
