I find it really confusing when nonnas post in the relationship advice thread as if they were having real relationship and then it turns out it's just some dude on discord they are talking to. Usually this information is not divulged until much later.

I propose we have two threads, one for real relationships and one for online relationships. Talk about your discord-kitten problems in this thread and get help from other discord-kittens. Leave the relationship advice thread for people who actually have to deal with moids face to face.

Just rambling about an online relationship that I had 2 years go

No. 291056

This is something I'm wondering too since I'm in the same boat. Trying to find a date IRL as a lesbian that has niche interests/beliefs and doesn't relate to the wider LGB community and doesn't click with the normie lesbians I talked to on apps, so I wonder if finding someone online and planning to meet up would work. Most of the worst e-dating stories I read are from straight couples, and lesbians tend to make up 1-2% of the population, so going online makes more sense in that case.

It makes me wonder how women get into relationships like this, though. All my crushes were on girls I knew in-person, and despite having online friends forever due to being an outcast, I could never be attracted. I was online friends with one cool nerdy girl in high school, we got along great (and liked girls), she showed a selfie once and was just my type, but I felt nothing despite having a platonic bond. Maybe it would be different as an adult, but when I see people gush over their online friend crushes, I don't get it, but I'm also jealous since I wish I could do that since online seems like my only chance.

I have a question regarding IUDs. I've been on the pill since early 2017 and I get pretty bad side effects. My breasts swell up (they become REALLY painful) and I get extremely nauseous. I haven't been off the pill since 2017 and the symptoms haven't disappeared. I'm honestly sick of it and decided to get an IUD. Have any of you had experiences with IUDs? I am not sure whether to get the hormonal or non-hormonal one. I absolutely hate and almost can't stand the side effects of hormonal birth control, but I get very painful periods and I heard that the copper IUD makes them 10x worse. ;-;

God speed nonnie. I had one of those bad experiences with my first IUD (second one was fine). My advice is that if something feels wrong even before the procedure don't be afraid to speak up. This is your body and doctors can be assholes who make assumptions. You're allowed to ask questions and question their judgement. Make sure they're working for that pay check.
Wishing you luck, tranquility, and happiness with the end result.

Different anon, but do you use the cup on its own or with a pad underneath? I accidentally bought the wrong size and leaked constantly, thought switching to a smaller one would help get a better seal, and it did, but I still can't go a whole day without some blood getting on my underwear. Curious if other people deal with this too or if it's just a weird anatomy thing

No. 288371

Women who are on the pill and are aware of the increased health risks like cancer and blood clots, how do you not worry about the risks? I want to go back on the pill (the pill is my only option for personal reasons) but I quit because of the increased health risks scaring me too much.. But I miss it so much, I miss being able to plan my period.

No. 290912

started BC 6 weeks ago, it's supposed to be those pills that let you skip periods. everything was great, but suddenly started spotting today. not sure if the pills are failing me or if it's from having had sex yesterday (which can cause spotting in rare cases).
fuck i thought this was over. periods send me into autistic rage. on the other hand it's only light spotting and is way preferable to a real period. i hate men for not having to deal with this shit.
I take evening primrose oil which lowers blood clot risk. i guess i should be less sedentary though.

No. 290968

Spotting is common on BC; especially so early after you've just started taking them, so no worries.

if you look into vintage clothes, they sometimes used pinking shears to avoid the seam allowances from fraying, it works, but it takes a lot of time to make that look nice and a very good scissor. So if you have the money and space, get yourself a serger, you won't regret it.

Embroidery anons, what sort of frame do you like to use? I like hoops the best, but I'm always afraid they will distort the aida, so I only use them when I will frame the work in the hoop. I bought a Q-snap frame, it's kinda OK but it does slide around way too easily. I'd like one of those wooden 'scroll' type of frames, but my pieces tend to be on the smaller size so seems like it would be overkill.

Yes tbh. Mainly because of acne. I think i was a very cute looking child and my wider nose suited my face at the time. But now? It's just too wide for my mouth. The more fat i lose from my face, the worse it looks and it's so distracting.

No. 289190


Yes, this realization recently hit me because I'd never looked at my childhood photos before until very recently when helping my mom clean house. I definitely got smacked hard with the ugly stick at puberty, I developed an incredibly unflattering body type and my chin got very masculine and my nose got wonky. It seemed immediate. 9th birthday pics very cute. 11th birthday, wtf what happened? By 12 and 13… Jesus christ. I guess I thought I was always ugly, it kinda feels worse knowing otherwise lol

It felt like I had finally gotten over my looks a few years ago, like so what I'm a cool person and who cares, but this year it's been bothering me again and I think I never really made my peace with it but just ignored it.

I don't know if therapy will help, I've tried it before a few times but they want to focus on other shit and refer me to psychiatrists for a thousand shit meds, whereas I believe my looks are my sole self esteem problem, thus depression, thus anxiety, etc. But I don't really know. Certainly not coping well with it lately.

No. 290677

I'm in the same position, with my looks being my main issue. If you don't want therapy you can try to manage on your own with free stuff online. I've been using the workbooks on this site for self esteem and tolerating distress. It helps, to a certain extent. They have one for body dysmoprhia which I haven't started yet.
I don't know if I will ever get over being ugly or learn to accept it but what do I have to lose by trying?

No. 290744

I've always been considered ugly both out of taste and objectively because i lack fat underneath my eyes and my mandible was never developed properly making me have no chin or jawline even when at a low weight.
My philtrum is so long and my nose is so shot I have sort of a piggish face. i look okay from a head on perspective but it quickly changes when you see me from the side or even resting my face you suddenly see how i have jowls despite being several decades before that's supposed to be a thing.
I look "deformed" like "wow that bitch certainly got some incest in her family" when not at all.
I feel like im lying to people when i send photos to people where i took 100 before i got a single photo where i didn't look terrible. They've never seen me irl and i keep saying to them "you'd think differently if you saw me irl" but they don't believe me.
i think theres some sort of body dysmorphia going on but also objectively having no chin and looking 2 seconds away from committing suicide isn't helping. wearing plain clothes and blonde hair has made me look "normal enough" people leave me alone more now.
im worry about meeting someone i met online because of my looks. nobody whos met me irl says im above a 5 maybe 5.5

No. 290782

advice who literally was there in my college days: maybe phase away from photo taking and getting into situations where you show others your photos, and maybe ease off of meeting people that are that interested in your looks + rating you. you should be avoiding situations that encourage yourself to put your looks under a magnifying glass. think this: what if you got super lucky and found someone that didn't mind you? do you understand the likelihood it'd backfire on you because you'd be so relieved that you'd probably ignore certain red flags or be easier to manipulate–which I've seen constantly with other women that are extremely insecure yet seek out these situations…idk if they're romantic or what.
I deeply regret doing similar (none of the weird meeting shady people off the internet thing–I did get to know one person that started making me feel horrible about my irl looks) and it just filled my younger years with constant neuroticism and self-consciousness. I wish I just focused on what I actually loved.

This is the worst sort of betrayal. I've come to find that a lot of women think they have male friends when, in reality, there is always an ulterior motive.

Do you think there is even a point in making friends with men?

Old-ishfag and it's funny seeing my old post >>78577
I've since dated a man (depressing, a learning experience) and also had a very close friendship with a man (not the one in my op) who rejected me. Since then I've also been hit on enough to say I'm okay-looking, and had several more platonic male friends who never made a move on me as well as a few that did. I've also gone from fat and androgynous to thin and feminine, and everything in between. So it's not me.

It's a gamble whether you can net an earnest male friend, but my reasoning now is that it depends on the dude. It's almost as if they're people or something.

>Do you think there is even a point in making friends with men?
Sure. male socialization is cancer but it doesn’t automatically turn every one of them into raping assholes. As long as you are careful and aware of those problems you should be fine. I wouldn’t judge a woman for not wanting to hang out with men though because those problems are huge.

One of my oldest friends I trust a lot, we have been through so much and I slept often at his place because I always felt comfortable in his company and would do it again without second thought anytime. Love this guy in particular. In general I couldn’t be friends with anyone that I wouldn’t share a bed with platonically. I always kept the ones who appear as if they have trouble respecting boundaries or are just nice because they want sex at arm’s lenght and will continue to do so.
I’m friends with a bunch of guys since forever. I more or less trust all of them but am aware of their socialization.

No. 290762

How many of your moid friends have girlfriends? Do you have relationship with those girls? How do you think your moid friends react if their girlfriends say they’re uncomfortable with the fact that you are willing to sleep in the same bed, platonically?

No. 290812

Some of them do. I get along good with them as well even if we dont know each other as long. I honestly have no Idea how those guys would react in a situation like that, if they would be understanding or how much they would take it personal, but I think some do understand that many women have justified trust issues due to bad experience, or at least they should. They suck if they don’t lol

Basically I’m a non-weeb nerd. I like all kinds of creative stuff and sperging about any interesting topic (mostly in the realm of humanities, but if you wanna sperg about science or medical stuff etc. I’m up for listening). I like to go on highbrow intellectual rants about books and films but not in a serious way, more like as a joke. I like to mix tacky and trashy things with high culture. I’d call myself a radfem but I’m not super orthodox about politics, either. Trying my best not to be an annoying edgelord. I’m actually polite and avoidant of conflict in one-on-one interaction.

The only explanation I can think of is that they've heard dating apps have made casual hook up easier, just thought that meant anyone would fuck anyone and have no grasp of their "competition". But it's baffling anyway because it's common knowledge by now that men complain about not getting matches or whatever equivalent.

Please feel free to vent or ask for advice in this thread pertaining to sexual abuse or harassment, etc

I'm looking for advice on how to build a healthy sexual relationship with my partner after my bad past. We've been married two years and he's fantastic. But my libido is very low and I have a feeling it might be tied to poor sexual relationships I'd had before. Starting at 8 years old and then on out. I'm not really bothered by the past but I think my mind is instantly associating sex with bad times, which shouldn't be the case since my husband is lovely. But my brain instantly is telling me that I dont want to do this or that its just a hassle. Often times when we begin fooling around I get stomach aches that will go away basically instantly when we stop, like he can tell I'm not in the mood so we wont continue. I never thought much of it, I always thought it was just something I ate. But today I figured out maybe it could be anxiety related.

I just want to be able to have a normal sex life with him where we can fool around and have fun, but I feel so bad for having something -wrong- with me. If anons have any advice i'd love to hear. I'm too poor for a therapist and I've scoured the internet for advice as well

My parents divorced when I was a toddler, I was living with my mother, with visits from my dad. When I was 6, mom got a boyfriend, he was not violent physically or verbally, but he was cold. A few weeks passed, and he started to be inappropriate with me, a few months later he started abused me with pencils (forcible penetration with a foreign object) while he masturbated. My mom knew of the abuse. I told my dad, and he called the authorities and I was put in his custody. I don't know what happened to them, since I was too little to know, and as an adult it would make me feel uncomfortable to ask my dad.

My dad is a good enough person for a moid, but growing up without female figures really fucked me up. When I was younger, I was needy towards my friend's moms and my (female) teachers. I do not feel comfortable around men, specially alone, and I repressed my sexuality as a teenager. To this day, whenever I masturbate, the face of that monster will flash for a second and kill my mood.

you can try to file a civil suit. honestly would probably scare him and his daddy more, plus less ability for the bullshit "justice" system to side with and protect him.
