Post the (Somewhat reasonable) Dreams you always had but are literally Impossible.

I always wanted to be a model, since i was a kid but i never grew past 5'1 and ended up being allergic to cosmetics.

Still makes me lowkey suicidal when i think of it.

Oh my gosh, congrats anon! I wasn't expecting it to be you posting you got a modeling job, but that's such a perfect way to return to this thread. Not to be a negative person, but please keep your wits about you and don't ever let them eat into your self esteem. I know you've probably heard this a billion times anyway.
A part of me still wants to model but feels too "old" (I'm turning 24) and a bit scared of working in the industry somehow fucking with my body image more now that I've got a better relationship with my body. I almost did a portfolio and went looking for jobs when I was 18/19 but some of the adults in my life (who did work in/around the industry) kind of discouraged me because of wanting to protect me. I'm not heavily pursuing it anymore but definitely wouldn't immediately say no if I got recruited either.
I guess one of my other "impossible dreams" would be being a famous musician or some other type of artist, besides a model, but I think I may be able to cut it on a lower level of fame. Fame looks kind of shitty too anyway. Pls no bully but part of me really would love to be an art model/muse (nude included…) or vintage-styled pinup girl, but I don't want people to be shitty to me/deeply uncomfortable about it or for it to ruin my career because people have seen my body. It ties right back into the wanting to be an artist thing because I would love to help plan and contribute to this stuff or to do it all myself. If it weren't for my concerns, I think that or being a writer/musician would be the least impossible dream for me. A lot of the dreams people think are "stupid" in here are honestly so cute and sweet and I hope that you all are happy, if not today, someday.

No. 138166

sage for doublepost but fuck I just realized this thread is supposed to be literally impossible dreams. my dreams probably aren't really impossible but idk if they'll ever happen the way imagine them or happen at all either. I honestly think a lot of people here have dreams that are unlikely but not actually impossible minus the actual fantasy stuff

No. 138223

there's for sure jobs. mostly in the disability sector but you can forge a path in hospitals, community work, private practice, anywhere. I'm studying to be a dance therapist right now and that's even less well known than art therapy but the advice I've gotten is to put yourself out there. creative therapies are in this nice in between where there aren't tonnes of therapists but if you approach organisations and explain what you can offer they're really open to it because all the research is pointing toward it working a lot better than talk therapy for many populations. please go for it, it's needed!

I know this reply is quite old, but we sound quite similar, anon!

I have a nose that's on the larger side, small ish lips and wide ish circular eyes which are typical 'baby' features (if that makes sense) , but then very dark circles which make me look old. I've been told I look tired and older a lot, but I've also been told I look youthful and very young a lot too? It's weird that my featured contradict each other and I don't know how to feel about it. I'm worried that I'm going to age terribly.

The only word that men have ever used to describe me is "cute." I'm 30 years old now. It's become an insult to me.

Why can't I ever be considered beautiful, gorgeous, stunning? Not "cute" like a puppy or child.

I actually think my face looks pretty good. And my body isn't bad either. I don't know what is so unattractive about me that no man ever gave me a real compliment. It's always just this word "cute" which is the equivalent of "well you're not straight up ugly, I guess."

No. 137805

same anon, what makes it worse (for me) is that my ex step-dad always said cute just means ugly but different so every time someone calls me cute, that's what i hear

No. 137807

Bless you anon, you could have described me. I remember seeing a tumblr post saying “I look like a 12 year old drug addict” and thinking yeah that’s me

Always accepted my face wasn’t great and sought solace in my body being pretty good but I’m feeling worse about that too? Feeling very critical about it about wanting to have surgery to make small tweaks. I don’t understand why because I don’t follow hot celebrities online or anything like that

The part I hate most is my boobs. They’re low set on my body (long torso) and while not the perkiest they’re not too saggy I think, like I can only fit one finger underneath them? But the combination makes it look like I’ve got old granny boobs in clothes

They’re also a D which looks unnatural on my frame, really tempted to get a lift and reduction so I don’t have to worry about them going down to my bellybutton

No. 141826

I think I might genuinely have body dysmorphia. I'm not a tranny, to get that out of the way, but I was overweight pretty much all the way from childhood until about 20, when I discovered the glory of myfitnesspal and started tracking and realized all the mistakes I was making. Dropped the excess weight (no unhealthy means and at a reasonable pace) and got pretty fit, but now I feel like I don't recognize the person in the mirror/in pictures as myself. Like I remember the moment I took the photo, logically I know it's me, but I look at it and think, who the hell is that? When did I ever look like that? I recognize other people fine, but when I see myself I get mildly-distressingly confused. I'm now known as someone who can't take a compliment because when someone says I look good, I usually sit silent for a second before muttering out something like "Oh, I do?" I just struggle to see what they're seeing. Every now and then the illusion cracks and I can suddenly see a new version of myself and it's like "when did this happen? when did I start looking like this? did something change?"
I don't know what this is or how to cope with it.

No, after having a lot of male friends and being the girl that has all those male friends I am here to say I would hate to be socialised as a male. Yes men 'run' the world but to its detriment. I love the unspoken language of women and how we navigate this world. Yes it sucks that we are subjected to more physical violence, but I'd rather be the bigger gender than wish I was the one that had more capability in being a war machine. I prefer women socialisation, our literature, music, media etc. I love our nature. I have a brother very similar to myself and people have mistaken us for twins and we had similar upbringings, and I would never want to switch places with him. Being a strong woman (fuck all to do with natural beauty, women can be exude hotness through attitude and demeanour, you just have to find your style) is infinitely better than being some random uggo male or even the no personality Chads. I can understand why men Troon out, just wish they'd stop doing such a bad mockery of womanhood

I know my ultra religious family would've treated me better if I were born male. My mom discouraged me from studying or learning things outside of homemaking, because they weren't relevant to my obvious path of getting a husband and being a mother. I could see the difference from a young age in my male cousins. They were raised so much more normal and didn't have their parents bringing up their potential marriage for their entire lives.

But hey, I can bake bread, so that's cool.

I'm not a great person but I feel like if I was a guy I would be an even bigger jerk. In terms of appearances, I'd probably look like my brother. My friends tell me they think my brother is handsome. He's kind of a Chad– muscular, 6'5", extroverted. He's really level headed and scholarly, though.

So basically if I was a boy, I'd look handsome, but I would have the same bitchy, lazy personality I do now, except worse because I feel like society enables guys who act like assholes. Also my name would have been Stephen if I was a boy, according to my parents.

>this shit thread again

No, scrote or braindead self-hating fakeboi, for the 1100th time, none of us here who are mentally sane would turn into an ugly, stinky, hairy, and in top of that mentally and emotionally stunned ape that is ruled by his dick in exchange of being treated with some minimal human decency. What we fantasize about is a world where we wouldn't be abused, mistreated and silenced because we were born female.

And apart from that, if you really believe the average male isn't miserable as fuck, you are deluded. Why do you think they are constantly attempting to troon out and similars and when not, they try to kill themselves. In my experience, men are such sad, pathetic beings. They are quite literally trapped within their own idiocy. I'm way better off as a woman in the first world with rights and a gun.

Is it ever ethical to lie about your sexual past? I feel like I've dealt with a lot of shit and even though I've had tons of partners that's not who I am now.

Asking on lolcow because let's face it, most of us here have a phase or two where we've had sex with men we barely know, hooked up with losers, slept with men we met online etc. We've all been there so I want to know there's light at the end of the tunnel.

I'm just tired of that life now. Want to settle down.

I had a ton of unprotected sex since I was very mentally ill and not thinking clearly. Never got a STD somehow.

Then I had a long term bf give me herpes from his mouth during oral. Ugh. Weird how life works, huh?

No. 137123

That's ironic and I'm sorry. I hope you don't often break out at least.
Oral is just as risky in terms of stds but you didn't get anything from that? Also glad hpv didn't turn out bad for you.

Similar here, slept around when I was depressed/lonely and being a risk taking dumbass. Tested after all that and it was clear. Ended up with an std 3 years into living with a long term partner though. Turns out he had a mistress.

No. 137130

I don't do oral anyway (give or take) but I was told condoms just don't fully protect against hpv, like they can help but it's not a guarantee. Something like 70 percent effective for that.

So glad it cleared up, those two years of bad smear test results really weighed on me.

I'm wondering how other anons feel about the concept of friendship and if anyone else is considering how necessary it really is.

I'm moving to the other side of the country next year and have decided I'm going to keep in minimal contact with my current friends (like a few phone calls/texts a year) and not really make an effort to make new ones. I just find friendship too emotionally draining and acknowledge I can be rather toxic, so it just seems for the best to keep them at arm's length and avoid new people.

Oldfag here, you can't go wrong trying to reconnect with old friends.

>How does one reconnect with a friend you had years ago?

Just call/message her. Keep it simple.

>It feels difficult because what do you even say to catch up with someone you haven't seen in years?

"Hey, I was thinking about you and wondering what you've been up to since we've last seen each other ages ago. How's life been treating you?"

>What if we grew into different people?

You probably have. It will be fun getting to know each other again.

>Has she even thought about me?

Yes! And she'll be thrilled to find out you've been thinking about her too.

Even if after reconnecting you realize you've grown too far apart to maintain an active friendship now, people from your childhood will always have a special place in your life and that kind of bond is worth keeping, even if it's just wishing them a happy birthday each year.

No. 136870

I value friendship greatly and will remain loyal even after I drift apart from people. For me it's a matter of principle, almost. I don't stop feeling love for people, they become part of me. I'll usually dedicate a lot of time to them and do not mind staying up late, traveling long hours etc to spend time with them. Most of my friends have not been interested in reciprocating but that isn't for me to whine about. If it gets to me, I either confront them or cut them off. I'm pretty clear with my boundaries. I still feel love for those I let go, though.

I don't make an effort to make new friends tbh. People tend to be interested in befriending me and I like giving people attention if they initiate a conversation.

I'd say just be honest and direct, but that's just how I go about everything. I've gotten nothing but honesty back from people I've been clear towards. If you do not want to "catch up" but rather just start being friends again, you can always just say so. You never ever have to conform to what you think one would expect from an interaction. It might catch them off guard but who cares.

No. 136895

i gave up on having friends in high school and even though my mental issues were due to family stuff, having flimsy friendships would have been good for me. Even if I never asked for emotional support, it would've been better for me.

So yea, it's necessary to me. Growing up and realizing not all friendships have to be fucking deep and some friends you might just go out and see a movie with is good. Though I do wish I had a couple very strong female friendships, preferably with women of similar backgrounds. Current friend group is wholesome but has both men and women (we're all slight autists so it's fine) but god I just want to be tight with slightly shitty women like myself.

No. 136926

Ugh this cut me deep. Can relate so much to what a lot of people are saying.
I kind of lost touch with my 2 oldest friends while I was in an emotionally abusive relationship because every time I met up with them I’d get accused of cheating. I ended up only contacting them when I had a fight with my ex and they quite reasonably got fed up with this. This happened over 3 years and I always apologised for being a bad friend but I don’t think they realised what he was doing to me, mainly because I didn’t until we broke up and I realised a few months later how fucked that relationship really was. I never told them anything in fear ‘karma’ would strike somehow and he would break up with me, and by the time I had a chance to reflect after the break up, the distance between us had grown so big I felt guilty and too afraid to reconnect.
I lost touch with a few other people too so in the end I eventually decided to move away after meeting someone else.
I’ve been here 2 years now and I have not made one single friend, I’m so scarred by what happened I just cannot click with anyone and suffer with social anxiety.
Luckily I am introverted so although I get upset sometimes, I genuinely enjoy being alone.

No. 136931

Wow this is my post from last year! Still living with my friend and her family. We’re moving out together though in a few months cause she got accepted to the school she wanted. My other BFF has moved away but we still message each other every so often and go to conventions together. I’m really thankful to have them as my friends!

I have always neglected my personal hygiene and basically live in a state of chronic self-neglect, which is masked sufficiently enough to get me through my work and social obligations. Luckily I am conventionally “attractive” and good at my job, so my questionable hygiene is often overlooked by coworkers. I've been really trying to work on my self-care and becoming my best self, but struggled to establish even a basic hygiene routine. I have major depression, general anxiety, and ADD so the mental health reasons are probably all there. My goal for this quarantine is to just start taking good care of myself in this most basic way. Ashamed that I can’t seem to follow through on my self-care goals. Any thoughts and/or tips to help a sister out?

I agree. I tried no-poo several times but the buildup, transistion and hassle isn't worth it when you can just use a sulfate free shampoo, they're mild. Sulfates in shampoos are the same as sulfates in harsh washing detergents that strip oils, once you cut those away you've removed like 99% of the problem anyway.

Well, I do agree with her about shampoo being a scam. not as a concept, but most of the shampoos easily available out there are trash, I wouldn't even wash my carpet with that stuff, and especially not my hair. And that's just unfair; I'm lucky to be able to spent 20$ on shampoo, but that's not even close to the majority of people

No. 136201

I used to be really thorough with the bath time where I would wash/skin scrub towel with shampoo and conditioner hair. I would do this 1-2x a week. When I started working regularly, I showered every work day but just rubbing myself down with soap and water and just rinsing my hair with water. When I just rinse my hair with water, it dries very quickly. Consider trying that, just wash with a bar of soap, wash your face, and maybe just rinse your hair.
