I have the TOMNEW-Essential-Ultrasonic-Aromatherapy-Humidifier from amazon. Soaking it in water made the metal circle inside of it a bit rusty. Whoops.

I’m gonna try a vinegar soak or alcohol. Someone once suggested to add a vinegar water mix and turn it on but I don’t want to break it.

Is it possible that being fat during puberty gave me a "fat voice?"
My voice is pretty low and heavy sounding even though I've lost weight. I was watching vid related and this morbidly obese woman has a very similar voice to my own although I was definitely never her size and have an ambiguous North American accent. But she…sounds heavy, you know? And not just wrt the breathing (which I don't have ofc). Does this turn people off? Do people read it as a fat voice rather than just a deeper one?

No. 428649

>>428637

Obviously fat doesn't change your voice, but hormones do. If you were fat due to PCOS, for example, it's possible that maybe your voice got deeper due to higher levels of testosterone.

But maybe you just have a deep voice, anon.

the part that makes this girls' voice fat is her horrible lisp but that's it. deep or not.

No. 428658

>>428637
I think voice tone and pitch depends on genetics and not really the weight of someone. The heavier women I know usually have very high feminine voices cuz the more fat you have the more estrogen you have and the more estrogen you have the higher the voice or something. Most people hate the sound of their own voice so don’t feel too self conscious about it. Deeper voices on women can be sexy like Emma Stones voice.

No. 428672

>>428637
If being fat DID change your voice, I assume it would be because of the extra fat around your throat pushing/altering your vocal cords somehow? But honestly if I heard a thin person with her voice I'd think nothing of it.

Piggybacking off of this, there are tranny apps where you can like, check your pitch while reading given paragraphs and compare it to the average female voice. The tranny apps will actually tell you where your pitch is relative to most women (and men, but the apps are mostly for TiMs iirc).

Is it pathetic to move back in with your mom in your mid-twenties? I have my own place and I have no financial troubles but I've just been really lonely. After staying with my mom and her husband for the past few days, it kind of reminded me of what it's like to have a nuclear family. She really likes it when I stay over too and asked me before if I wanted to move in. It feels weird encroaching on their space like this but also it's nice to have my family so close by. What do you guys think?

I had to move back in my mid 20s and it was hell. Not that I ever got along with my mom to begin with, but mine had a tendency to revert back to treating me like a teenager when simply that wouldn't do. I didn't get much respect or privacy and she took it personally whenever I laid boundaries or stuck up for myself in any way.

get to know your mum as an adult, live with them while you can while things aren't so serious you have to cart a family or baggage along. OG family setups still exist, it's just weird in western terms apparently. look at how some people in japan and other tradition-rich countries treat and live with their family.
I'm in the same situation and I legit come home to my mum's for a breather and to hang out with her and her dog. when I'm not renting I pay her board so she can pay off her mortgage, so it's a win-win for both of us. I still get my autonomy and independence like a boarder but it isn't "freeloading". depends ultimately on your own family and it's different individually obviously, but if you're considering it and the only thing holding you back from saving money and spending quality time with your family is the misplaced stigma that it's somehow shameful to live with your family (or live where and how you want, ultimately) then dont but otherwise I say do it if that's what you want.

This video is so sweet, anon. Thanks for that. My main problem is that my mom and I don't always get along. We've only really been able to heal our relationship after living apart for a few years.

Has anyone here started a personal baking business?

I bake as a hobby but I have had a few people ask me to bake for their events. Mainly decorated cookies. I'd like to build out my brand a little and possibly grow this into a lucrative part-time gig alongside my desk job…

Both my husband and I work in an industry where there are lots of events, meetings and opportunities for people to appreciate custom-ordered baked goods. And since I've already been asked a few times I figure I am in a good place to start.

Would love to know if anyone here has done something similar.

My mom does it and I help her out a bunch!

Why do people tend to gain weight when they enter a relationship?

I've noticed a trend among my friends and classmates, anytime they get into a long term relationship they very quickly gain about 10-20+ pounds after awhile. A lot of slim girls I knew are now suddenly much bigger, and it started around the time they met their significant others. The men in these relationships also got chubbier. Never been in a relationship so I haven't experienced it myself, but it seems like there's a correlation. Do people really just "let themselves go" when they're no longer single? I'd understand if it was older couples but these people are in their late teens-early twenties. The whole "romantic relationship = very fast weight gain" just baffles me.

My theory is that people just tend to eat more food when in a relationships. Dinner dates, binge watching shows together while munching on stuff, just generally enjoying life with your partner and not really worrying about looks so much.

Happened to me and my bf. We're now trying to be more healthy and lose some weight together. It sucks because he loves baking. No more white chocolate cheesecakes and surprise blueberry muffins.

Worth it to avoid future heart problems and diabetes, I guess.

No. 429003

It’s because women choose what they have in their house and what they eat when they are single. Most men eat like toddlers and eat constantly, so it starts to rub off on them. They also almost always do the cooking — they have to cook tendies all the time for their manchildren, so that’s what they end up eating too.

No. 429004

>>428993
IA but I think it particularly affects girls because she starts matching what the guy eats because he's also making choices of what and how much to eat. Obviously men can eat far more than women and it will make a small girl gain weight easily.

Honestly it fucking sucks seeing up close and personal just how much a guy can eat without gaining weight, even without exercising or being particularly big.

No. 429006

Combine people caring less about their looks now that they've settled with a life that may involve more food such as going out to dinners and it's what you get.

What are your thoughts on taking IQ tests, online or offline?

I took an online test yesterday and scored high, 130, but the test itself was incredibly easy so despite it sounding nice, I'm aware that my IQ is probably closer to 100 maybe even 90 tbh.

Now I want to take an actual IQ test at Mensa and once and for all confront my deepest fears that I'm in fact a brainlet. It's not even expensive, 30 euros or so per test.

The thing is, my reason tells me that it's stupid to place so much value on a number. Besides, no matter how much of a low or high IQ I have, I can't change it. So why do I want to know?

IQ test aren't really that valid or reliable and mostly test logical-mathematical skills and to some degree linguistic skills.

If I am drinking hard liquor, I need an equivalent of about half a bottle of vodka to even feel remotely drunk. (A typical bottle of vodka in my country is 500 ml so I need a 250 ml of 40% alcohol content)
If I am drinking beer, a 500 ml bottle of 6,5% alcohol content beer gets me there just as quickly and effectively.

Is it a body issue? Is it because beer is kinda fizzy and fizzy drinks tend to get to your head quicker?

It always seemed fucking ironic to me since I really, really love coctails with hard liquor and hate most beers (and we have like 2 types of good tasting high alcohol content mainstream beers in our country both of which I am tired of)

Women in same-sex groups are more likely to voice their actual opinions, feel more comfortable disagreeing/calling someone out, debating, arguing, being blunt, whatever. Than they do when men are present. This type of dynamic is challenging for women who are used to men/mixed-sex dynamics, because men don't challenge women. They will ignore or dismiss, or patronize, but won't be as directly challenging as another woman would be.

Like I know we have different interests, but if I can listen to them talk about LoL and CS:GO for hours.. surely they can handle a few minutes of me talking about my video games?

At the peril of being accused a man-hater (imagine the horror!), men rarely take a woman's opinion seriously. I've managed to establish myself as an authority at my workplace but it took a lot of time and me becoming more androgynous for that to happen and I still get dismissed at times.

Online, where everyone's male by default, my opinions and thoughts are valued but irl? Nope. If they care about you, they might pretend for a short amount of time. Otherwise forget about it.

Even though their topics are neither complex or more interesting than yours, even if you present your arguments and thoughts in a coherent manner, they're just going to dismiss you. It's depressing because that's not going to change anytime soon, maybe never.

Probably just puberty. You go from being another kid on the playground at best, icky girl at worst, but then later as teens they just wanna have sex with you and nothing else. There's probably some kind of psychological theory out there that when this happens we try to get their attention again to be how it used to be which creates "not like other girls" syndrome. Idk if this makes any sense to anyone else, I cant explain it very well.

(Mainly to US anons because of federal laws) Is there a limit on how much money you can transfer/withdraw out of your savings account? I know there's a limit of 6 times per month, but I vaguely remember the bank person telling me I also couldn't withdraw more than $600 over the course of those 6 withdrawals, but this was also over a decade ago. All the information online only talks about the 6 withdrawal limit. I have my savings with Chase at the moment, the Chase website doesn't seem to say anything about $600 limit but I'm not sure if I've just been going crazy this entire time or what?

In certain lighting (indoor overhead light, harsh lighting from a lamp, strong sunshine and a shiny face from sunscreen) my nasolabial folds look really bad and in other conditions (softer lighting/daylight that isn't direct sunlight) they're not visible. Which one do I believe? I asked my friends and boyfriend and they all said they're not visible or only sometimes but I don't know if they're just trying to spare my feelings.
The area there isn't even wrinkled really, but my facial fat is distributed in a way that I've always had them (they look like pic related but stretching from the sides of my nose and not that far down), there's always been a clear 'divide' between the area around my mouth/chin and my chubby cheeks. The skin around my nostrils is also darker which makes matters worse.
Is this something to worry about? Is this what people mean by nasolabial folds/smile lines? You did say dumb questions.

It's one of the first wrinkles that you begin to see as you age (the kind that stays as a wrinkle even when your face is neutral) so I think some anons have damage regarding it. It's absolutely normal and everyone has them when they make most facial expressions, and some people have them even when their face is resting, nbd. If it's facial fat related than they're likely being honest in that it's not obvious all the time.

There are tons of women with facial lines and sub-optimal fat distribution that are still considered attractive. Either way I'd focus on evening out skintone and flattering features you like the most rather than being sad about a "flaw" that you share with most humans and one that every human will inevitably have lol.

Sage for manhate but I think it's because women literally have the ability to love, whereas men's emotions are limited to lust, anger, excitement and so on. They lack sentimental bonding emotions which women have in abundance so they cannot "love" the way a woman can. So to answer your question (as a straighty) I assume lesbians love other women, literally, where men just tolerate, are attracted to, or are fond of women at best. Often they love what we do for them; our service.

Like one male friend was bragging about his tomboy gf and how she wasn't high maintenance like the other girls, and she… just had a pixie cut. Face full of make up, manicured nails, but she didn't have long hair so that meant she was a tomboy. How can you say you're in love with a woman when you get her entire aesthetic wrong?

I'm not expert or anything like that but could be that you just have a small, less defined chin, have excess fat around the neck area or your lower jaw is not properly aligned and you have an overbite. All of these could give you a double chin even if you're skinny.
If it's a jaw issue you'd have to see an orthodontist otherwise you can get chin fillers or have the fat removed.

It's gonna vary depending on the person talking but for me a good relationship is a partnership. You feel like someone's got your back and they're willing to engage you fully when you need that. Emotional availability and the comfort of knowing being exactly true to yourself is the only thing you need to keep that person around. They've accepted your whole being and they'll help you grow but won't be a burden to change you. Just more like a teammate who's rooting for you.

They can be interchangeable, but not always. Left-wing and liberal are basically the same. I personally see 'liberals' as referring to the more extreme left, but not everyone uses it that way. You can apply both these terms to Democrats, but not always the other way around. You can be liberal/left-wing but not a Democrat. Same thing applies to right/conservative/repub.

Our system only really accepts Democrats and Republicans for the most part, but other parties exist, like the Green Party, which is left-wing. And Libertarians are kind of all over the place depending on who you're talking to, oddly enough. I've met liberal and conservative libertarians.

Most of the original farmers are migrants from 4chan's /cgl/, which was already a mostly female community. In 2012 (or 2011? Can't quite remember) drama threads were banned from /cgl/ and users propped up different websites to continue their discussions. Stamina Rose was the latest creation and after that site closed down, our glorious Lolcow Farm came to be.

So to answer your question, it's always been mostly female, although I remember during the early days posting as a male wasn't explicitly banned like it is today.

It was Maximum Faggotry, then Stamina Rose, and now Lolcow IIRC. The fucked up thing about LC is that when it first started, the admin of Stamina Rose explicitly went to Unichan to try and get one of the autists there to be admin for her because she couldn't be bothered. It's why we ended up having threads about Orange Citrus, one of their many camgirls.
In hindsight, it makes sense that we got a Shoe0nHead orbiter as our first admin. Hell, in hindsight, Shuwu was probably the admin of SR, which would make her the "true" admin of Lolcow before handing it over to Ian.

No. 433640

>>433629
Hey anon, after getting a fridge that harbored some I can tell you what my family did.

There are gels specifically for roaches, you can apply it really anywhere in their way and they'll carry it back to the nest and nom on it. Borax is also an option as well as it's lethal to them (boric acid is lethal) There are some other powders as well specially made for this purpose. Find where they are hiding. You'll be able to find a ton of eggs that way (maybe dedicate a vacuum to this purpose specifically to dispose) find the pathways they take. It depends on the kitchen but common areas would be, in cupboards (search high and low) and make sure there are no holes in them or way they can hide behind them. Make sure you check the stove, they will hide in appliances. Check your fridge (under and behind), check your dishwasher (they will usually hide on top or behind the insulation). They will hide in base boards and that's how they will often travel to other rooms which is where I recommend sprinkling the powder. I hope your family has no pets for that method though.

If you need a little help tracking them, do it at night. Turn off the lights and wait a bit then turn them back on, some should be around because that's when they hunt for food, at night.

I would also recommend spraying a roach killing spray if you're able to like maybe… Once a week (especially in the nesting area). You really need to track down where the nest is. The mamas are pretty easy to spot and when they know they're dying, they'll usually detach the egg from themself. So you gotta find it fast before the next babies hatch.

Lock up any food you have and make sure the kitchen is clean, starve them a bit. They'll get desperate and appear more often, but that'll be good if you use the gel since they'll take it back.

Remember to apply the poisons to the areas where they travel or commonly go. Make sure pets aren't able to get near them too.

When you find the area(s) (we had 2 areas they specifically were drawn to) that they gather in put some powder (borax is an option) in those areas.

Last but not least… Their nest will most likely be in a dark area but near a food source. My family only had the kitchen to deal with but it is possible for them to hide in other furniture.

Best of luck anon. You'll know the poisons are working when you see them slowly walking or even in daylight. They get really desperate lol.

Sorry for double post but I forgot to mention, dishes you should look into putting into somewhere more remote, in a cabinet or some sort of storage box. They will hide in dishes and or even lay eggs in them. Things like spices and other foods you can do the same with, or dedicate an area in the cupboard for food but you need to often monitor it and make sure everything it tightly sealed.

Ate VERY salty trash food, but I totaled in at 1000 calories for the day (I'm 5'6" for reference and lifted for an hour as well, I've been losing weight eating above 1000 so far).

I studied in Japan twice (though I was a Polysci major), one semester in Nagasaki and one semester in Tokyo.

Both were easy as fuck. My university in Nagasaki wasn't anything special (small uni), but being in a homestay, having a really hands-on international student department to support us, and being in basically bumfuck, nowhere Japan where almost no one speaks English really helped my Japanese. Not like N5 to N1 level, but I did improve quite a bit (nowhere near fluent, but enough to communicate basic things and hold a semi decent dinner conversation with my host mum). Culture wasn't that difficult to adjust to, then again I grew up a giant fucking weeb so I sort of knew what to expect. My host mum was very, very forgiving with me and my school offered courses on Japanese culture.

In Tokyo, I was at one of the top universities. I don't say this to toot my own horn, but just to say that despite it being a top university, I wasn't really challenged in any of my classes. Then again, I wasn't allowed to enroll in Japanese courses because I didn't apply to it originally (they required a study statement in Japanese and again, my Japanese isn't that good). I'm sure the Japanese courses would've been a lot more enlightening, all the English courses are geared for Japanese students so it's super basic English and the professors expect the absolute bare minimum so getting S in all my classes was basically a given. I did get to take some interesting classes not offered here in the states, and gave up my second semester of Japanese language to take a class with one of my favorite professors (was definitely worth it for my own personal enjoyment).

I've left out so, so many things and your experience (whether in Japan or Russia or SK) will be definitely be different. I was going through a lot emotionally during my time in Tokyo so I unfortunately view it as sort of a stain on my life. It was easy to get by with minimal Japanese and I isolated myself a lot because of the things going on in my life so my Japanese arguably got worse than when I lived in Nagasaki.

Also, since I was a polysci student, it was easy to get all the courses I needed to take and have them count at my home university. I would imagine something like computer science might not be offered for international students (especially since most just come to fuck around and take the most basic classes in culture and language), but some schools might!

Some of my friends studied in Japan for one or two years and I couldn't because I was way too poor to go anywhere. They all told me that they also went to top universities in Tokyo because of partnerships with our university and everything was incredibly easy compared to what we studied in our country, classes, tests and assignments. They were all half-assing everything and visiting places and making friends instead and had no problems. I've seen many other people from my country say similar things but we were all studying more like business administration more or less but in several languages.

Affording to study in Japan (twice!) was definitely not cheap, but somehow ended up making my overall college expenses cheaper (only paid tuition to my home university, room&board and all that was cheaper in Japan).

It was definitely a no brainer that I'd get into both schools. We have close relationships with them and we get a lot of Japanese students at my universities from them, and it's not like I was failing my courses so they had no reason to reject me (also not that many people applied).

I can't speak for everyone and all schools, but I do feel like the "half-assing everything and visiting places and making friends instead" is pretty much what a study abroad experience is for. You're there to experience the culture, and the classes are really just a side thing. When I lived in Nagasaki they really amped up all the student activities- took us to an onsen, amusement park, some other popular places to really explore and basically absorb Japan into our souls. They told us "you're a student, your main priority is to study" while also knowing you'll really just be off fucking around and figuring out what foreign alcohol tastes the best.

There was a huge difference between the international students who were seriously enrolled in a 4 year course with intention to graduates and international students who were studying abroad. Not to say there aren't those studying abroad who are really trying to get something super academic out of it, but most of us who were on the English track course were mostly there just to be there. Actually thinking back on it, quite a few of my fellow international students in Nagasaki were studying compsci or something similar and knew they were just there for the experience and not for anything beneficial to their major.

That said, they really were impactful life experiences for me and I wouldn't be the person I am today without them, so they're worth it even if you might not get a lot academically out of them! I have a brain full of mostly useless information lol.

I think "half-assing" was a bit exaggerated, but really my friends who went abroad only studied for tests and did their assignments in a reasonable way, while here in our country everyone else had some nightmarish schedules with nightmarish assignments and our teachers and the administrations lowered many students' grades to "reajust" the average marks in order to give our university a specific reputation. So it's really relative to that.

>they really were impactful life experiences for me and I wouldn't be the person I am today without them

All of my friends said pretty much the same thing. Many of them stayed there after graduating and have well-paying jobs, some are dating or married to people they met there, and other are often going back for holidays. ngl I'm jealous of them because I couldn't go anywhere and our university was very demanding but it was absolutely not rewarding. Other friends who went to English speaking countries instead loved studying abroad as well except one guy who spent a semester in NY and was shocked that everything was way too expensive for him, he had to come back just because of it.

Outside of conventional beauty standards, why do women bother shaving their legs/pits/pubic area?
I’m not a radfem at all, but the ONLY way I manipulate my natural hair is keeping my pubes trimmed and plucking my slight unibrow. I have lots of feminist friends but I’m still the only one who’s hairy. Albeit I’m ‘lucky’ because my hair is light and thin so it’s not immediately noticed in person and doesnt show up in pictures. But still. I have a hard time believing women genuinely want to spend so much time/money on being hairless. My legs get too sensitive when I shave, my vulva gets irritated and feels sweaty constantly regardless of various hair removal methods, my pits actually smell worse without hair (I do use deodorant tho lmao). And honestly, my hair has served as a great way to weed out (most) shitty men. I just really don’t understand why women, particularly “woke” ones, still engage in this

I shave my legs, pits, and pubes. I don't shave my arms because I just have some peach fuzz.

The reason for everything else is because my hair is super coarse and scraggly.
If I let it grow out it often gets caught in the material of my clothes.
I feel itchier when I have hair; sometimes a breeze across my legs makes the hairs move in such a way that my mind is tricked into thinking there's an insect crawling on me for a split second. It's unsettling.
When I sweat I hate having hair because I feel like the residual is wetter for longer (similar to how short hair dries quicker than long hair). I feel like a wet beast.
Plus I like the visibility of seeing every little bump, scratch, and bruise without noticing because a bunch of hair is covering my skin.

i don't judge women who wax or shave, it's a personal aesthetic choice and me going all radfem on them is senseless and won't change their minds. i understand my hatred for it comes from a place of trauma and subjectivity, but i do think it's the dumbest double standard and beauty standard to impose on women.

I feel like there's no similar valid reason to shave my arms/legs, there is visible dark hair, but it's not a lot and it's not uncomfortable. It made me think about it more when the other day my bf was telling me how he was self-conscious about his extremely hairy arms and legs and rarely wears shorts because of it. He's a huge sweetheart and I comforted him about it. But most guys don't even think about how hairy and gross they are, and they show off that shit to everyone. It's pretty stupid how even having a little bit of hair visible on my legs feels like a huge humiliating thing.

Even I have really thick, black hair and I stopped shaving a few years ago. I only started shaving my legs because I was scared kids in school would make fun of me, and there's really no point in shaving pubes or other sensitive areas. It just gets itchy and gives painful ingrown hairs. I do trim it though, especially my pubes because it's gross and annoying when discharge dries if the hairs are longer.

Sometimes I get comments from people wondering why I don't shave my legs. My mom laughed at me one time and called me Middle Eastern. It did piss me off because it's none of their business but I still do whatever I want. It's my body and their opinions are worth nothing.

it's 100% conditioning. men in general don't get grief from sexual partners for not shaving their genitals or 'pits or whatever, you never see men's pictures on social media get flamed by women bc "ewww he doesn't shave gross". it's a double standard, a patriarchal one too.

any woman who tells you that they do it "for themselves" has a right to do so, you can do whatever the heck you want with your body and it's understandable if body hair makes you feel uncomfortable, but we can't deny we've been conditioned for years & years by media and societal standards to think body hair is "gross" on our bodies (but not men's). ask yourself: would you think having hairy legs/vag/pits feels and looks bad if tv, movies, magazines and your social environment hadn't always talked about it that way?

I don't feel disgusted or think any less of a woman with facial hair or hairy arms. I'm not convinced men care that much either. Last winter my husband and I agreed to stop shaving our body hair. The result was that I prefer it when he's hairy and he doesn't care about me being hairy. He would stroke my leg hair and tell me how nice and soft it was.

Women saying they wax/shave for ~themselves~ is like women who wear makeup saying they do it for ~self-expression~. Like, do it if you want, but we both know you wouldn't if it wasn't expected of you or if it made you uglier in men's eyes.
The only insecure people in these discussions are women who can't handle their choices being examined, and that's libfem shit right there.

Things have definitely gotten a lot better! Tokyo happened during an unfortunate time and the isolation (my own fault really) and being so far away from my support system of friends and family did nothing but worsen the situation. To make things even more worse, no one from my school applied that year so I went in completely alone! I did make both intl and Japanese friends through the seminar my school basically forced me into!

To answer your question, my classes in Nagasaki were 100% American international students. Japanese students weren’t allowed to take the courses offered fo us. Lol, even the Chinese and Korean intl students were in seperate classes from us. We mingled a lot with Japanese students in the common areas though!

In Tokyo my classes were more mixed because my english classes weren’t 100% geared towards international students. Japanese students took them too (which was why is was so easy, they had to simplify the English so taking a law class felt like… if you were to teach constitutional law to grade schoolers) and I unfortunately got babied into speaking English all the time because they wanted to practice with me.

I’m not terribly fond of the work culture (I work for a Japanese company now here in NY and it’s just really not my favorite thing lol, but to each their own!).

Yes, you are sperging and that's why you seem insecure about not shaving. Nobody here is trying the empowered choice libfem bullshit, saying they like having smooth skin or shaven men doesn't mean they are denying the social expectation for women to be hairless. You're getting mad at 'I like how it feels' as an explanation because being a slave to the patriarchy is the only reason you're willing to accept, apparently.

Maybe consider that some feminists prioritize other things. I've chosen the single, celibate and childless life so what am I to think of women who dont shave complaining about their bfs and fuckbuddies not liking it? I shave my vag but nobody sees it, is that worse than not shaving and still giving ungrateful, undeserving men pussy and letting them hurt her feelings?

It’s also possible to feel insecure in your decision to not shave because of societal expectations? It’s a bold decision to start with, but the confidence to be unapologetic about it may not come easily. Especially since it’s not past strangers to comment on a woman’s body unprovoked.

Since we’re sperging about shaving and body hair, do any anons here have tips on trimming pubic hair? I hate shaving that area because of ingrown hairs and it grows back so fast. I remember a farmer once recommended electric trimmers but I’m kinda scared of using one near my labia. I just want neatly trimmed hair, idc about being bald anymore it’s too much of a hassle.

I use these bad boys, esp for that pesky hair that seems to grow almost inside the inner rim of the labia. It'll get you a pretty close trim without the ingrowns, and I've never had the trimmer knick me despite straight up attacking my labia with it.

>Maybe consider that some feminists prioritize other things.
People aren't prioritizing body hair in feminism just by simply having a conversation about it. Feminism critiques almost everything under the sun related to female socialization, yet without fail some people will take it personally when the thing they do/like gets put on the chopping block. You're allowed to do what you want but don't get pissy about normal criticism and deny that most women's choice to shave is in some part informed by social expectations.

I use one of these bad boys, has lasted me for years for like $15 @ the grocery store. Super close shave but no ingrown hairs and I can do it dry with a handheld mirror once a week before I hop in the shower.

Throwing a tantrum because other women shave isn't 'having a conversation'. I would completely understand and empathize if anons were responding like dumb libfems but they aren't, they're just saying they shave for whatever personal reasons and several specifically conceded social pressures as a cause.

This isn't the radfem thread to begin with.

Opinions that challenge your pov is not "throwing a tantrum." A lot of posts are acerbic but that is the general tone of this board and to be expected. This exactly what I meant when I said people can't take normal criticism that pertains to the things they do.

No. 435132

>>435129
But nobody has had their opinions challenged, jfc. You think we're defending shaving as purely our own choice, but nobody is doing that. We ALL know we don't shave or wear makeup in a vaccuum, but some of us do it anyway. The fact that we shave despite understanding that doesn't warrant responses like >>435038, which I do consider a tantrum because it reeks of bitterness.

Again, I am not and have never once argued that hair removal is chosen without the influence of social pressure. Nobody here is arguing that but you keep responding like we are, in a way that might be appropriate for choice feminists on tumblr, but not us.

Am I a bad partner if I'm repulsed by my bf liking pictures of anime girls on twitter? They're not all sexual, some of them are, but it's still weird to me liking images of basically what look to be little girls. I'm seriously turned off by men who like moe anime and anime girls in general. There's a lot of lain and evangelion in there too which I know anons here have previously said were red flags when men are obsessed with these. I've broken up with boys who were into anime before my current bf. There's something really gross about it to me like somethings not right in their head.

He also told me he doesn't like anime but only likes it for the art style. So basically…he still likes anime. Why lie? Am I being too harsh?

Samefag to say that she is definitely regarded as part of Germany's post-war cultural heritage, due to having a career in both east and west Germany and being the biggest female name in German punk and that's why she still gets exposure.

Could it be seborrheic dermatitis, anon? If that’s the case cutting your hair will probably help, because your scalp will be easier to treat topically this way.

Going to add to second anon's idea that it might be seborrheic dermatitis. I have a system that I use and now I don't have to wash my hair every 4-5 days and my scalp is still healthy. I used to have to wash daily because of my skin problems. First, I soak my scalp with apple cider vinegar for a couple of minutes after I get my hair wet in the shower. I dilute a small amount in two cups of water and let it sit. Then I use a shampoo called Nioxin which is good for hair growth, but what I like the most is that it helps with oil production and flakes. Then I condition as normal. Another thing that made a huge difference was changing my shower head to one that filters the water. It made the itch, dandruff, and excess oil production almost cease. The shampoo I'm using does dry out your hair a little bit, so if you use it make sure to put something in the lower section of your hair for conditioning, some kind of serum or leave in conditioner. Good luck. Oh, cutting your hair will help a little as it will help with tension on your scalp.

I’ve been experiencing this really weird sensation in my dream that I haven’t before. It’s like I feel this intense energy starting around my gut and then waves of it pulse through my body so powerfully that I just have to submit to it. In my last dream, the one I had was so intense that (in my dream, where I was lying in my bed) I moaned during it, buried my face in my pillow, and was gasping for breath by the time it was over. It was uncomfortable because it was so intense that I felt basically paralyzed but also the pressure felt good. My dream had NO sexual themes (I was literally just lying in bed alone in the dream) and I don’t remember feeling anything down there so I have no idea what this was?

Piercing babies' ears is so dumb, the holes will look weird and won't even be symmetrical.

I've noticed that the same parents would typically disown or at the very least insult their adult kids if they willingly get piercings anywhere else.

No. 437015

>>436998
Because daughters are treated more like dolls to accessorise. You see it even in the way they’re dressed, boys will be dressed in clothing that is easy to move around for the baby and typically very weather appropriate, whereas the girls will be dressed in layers upon constricting layers, the clothing material often being unpleasant because of all the glitter/ruffles/sequins/what have you, and then those god damn awful headbands that leave welts on the babies heads (who constantly try to take it off, mind you)

As a mum of two very young kids it’s infuriating going into any toddler/baby space and seeing the daughters treated like something to just display. I’m not at all surprised that the types of parents that put fashion before function for an infant are also the type to dismiss physical and mental trauma caused by body modification on someone who cannot consent or even wrap their head around the idea of their parents hurting them

>Because daughters are treated more like dolls to accessorise.
This is exactly why I am so relieved that my preggo sister didn’t end up with a girl this time. She has 2 boys with another on the way and acted like a girl would be ideal for her when she is such a damaged narcissist and would have no idea how to properly handle a daughter other than dressing her up like a baby doll and giving her a cute name. I was relieved when she got the gender results because that would’ve just been another generation of damaged, misunderstood women in my family tree.

Boys are definitely easier (as long as they’re not straight up abused). They don’t have all the societal shit to deal with other than hurrdurr get a job and wife.

If stereotypical assumptions aren't involved, I never understood the problem people have with racial preference opposed to other physical things (like height, hair colour, or body type preferences). It's good, your partner is attracted to you.

idk I'd be happy if my partner had a thing for women of my race (although it would be surprising since we're so few). As a general rule I only find non-white guys attractive though, so I guess I'm biased on the issue.

I read somewhere that serial killers are much less than in decades past and also their victim numbers are shorter than beforesince they get caught sooner, due to technology and law enforcement being aware of them so one theory is that a lot of these sociopaths that would likely end up as serial killers in a diferent age now know that if they want to commit heinous acts then they have to make their one big opportunity count so they go all in in one go.

Short answer, yes after the implants have healed.

Maybe send a note apologizing for whatever happened in the past (if you know and accept it was your fault) and that tell her you'd like to move past it and make amends. Of course, you shouldn't be upset or surprised if she ends up not wanting to, but I think apologizing would be a good first step in the right direction to at least make family events not awkward. I'm iffy on the giftcard though, it would feel like (if I was in your sister's shoes) that you're just trying to buy her forgiveness.

When I was younger (probably somewhere between 14-16 years old) my tuberculosis test came back positive. It's latent, and they put me on medication that I had to take daily for about 9 months.

I think I had somewhere between 3-5 months worth of pills left to take.

Is it normal for a 7 year old not to know how to read or tell the concept of time? I recently got to spend time with my 7 year old cousin and was a bit appalled to learn he can't read yet, he just turned 7. I asked him what day of the week it was and he gave me a dumbfounded look, "What's a 'week'?" he asked. I thought he was trolling me, but after some digging he was 100% legit. He doesn't know the days of the week, had no concept of months or years, and no concept of the changing seasons either. We also discussed the topic of travelling (I asked him had he ever travelled anywhere to get some convo out of him) and he was confused with the concept that planes don't only fly internationally and that borders exist (he thought the country ended wherever airports are).

He's also abysmally, incredibly bored and uninterested with anything that isn't Fortnite. All he does all day when he gets home from school or activities is play Fortnite. I tutored him for a bit as a family favor and he wouldn't even say "hi" to me when I got to his house. And he doesn't even look me in the eye, or even my general direction, if he speaks a word to me.

Is this normal? Are all kids his age like this now? I'm a bit behind with the times, maybe kids are typically like this at his age & I'm being judgy.

That's really concerning. Yeah, 7 year olds are supposed to know how to read, and read small chaptered books by now.
Does your cousin even go to school? Because even a shitty school would have taught him the days of the week by the time he's 5 and they're supposed to do things like teach you to read a clock. Could he possibly have undetected learning difficulties?

I worked with a class of 5 year olds for a while at an ordinary school and the teachers always mentioned milestones and development, not just as abstract things but as goals their job made them write sheets and tick boxes for (which made me realise there's more to being a teacher to that age group than "colouring in and macaroni art"). If a kid seemed to be lagging behind outside of the norm they'd have look into it as part of what they're hired for. Correct me if I'm wrong but American schools can't be that much different from UK ones. And of course if his parents are the problem and they don't care, he's kind of fucked. I hope they're okay with you stepping in if they're not willing to do it themselves and don't see it as "interfering with MY kid!"

This is more subjective but just because it's (current year) and kids act like this "normally" doesn't mean it's good or healthy, manners are important and necessary in certain settings/getting along with people and doing nothing but playing video games is all sorts of bad for your health (and this is coming from someone who easily loses 8+ hours of a free day to Dark Souls if I don't keep a vicegrip on things).

Am that anon, I did think US education was more or less the same, minus the different names for things it’s both Western 1st world countries with overlapping culture. Education can’t be that different but I know a lot of teeaboos and patriots who keep harping on about imaignary differences depending on which country they’re jerking off.

This kid actually sounds like a guy I met at another place who I spent some time tutoring. He was illiterate, but he could read basic words and memorised menus to play his games and buy PC parts from Amazon. Totally normal intelligence as far as I knew, he told me about ThatPoppy while we were chatting and paranormal YouTubers. He liked maths better but hit a wall when the questions were worded. Trying to take him through English was impossible because he’d just stare blankly and disengage so hard I’d see his brain escape orbit. Sometimes I thought maybe he could read better than he let on and acted some of it so get away with not doing the work but it was impossible to tell.
It was kind of frustrating because I could see potential in him, like building a gaming rig despite his illiteracy, but when he doesn’t want to read you might as well give up unless there’s a gun to put to his head.

I remembered something more relevant to anon though, he said he was told he had dyslexia and ADHD. Personally I think the dyslexia thing isn’t true, jst that he seriously paid no attention to reading for so long that he became functionally illiterate the older he got, just like how he couldn’t coast along lower grade maths questions forever because they’ll inevitably involve word problems.

Is it possible to determine if someone's fat by their bra size?
It's been two years since an anon told me that I'm unfortunate since I'm fat and small chested when I told her that I'm size 85C.

I don't recall which thread it was or what was the context, but for some reason those words stick to me.

I thought, fair enough because I was overweight at the time. I've lost some weight in the meantime, but my bra size hasn't changed at all. 85C seems rather big to me but now every time I go shopping it's like I can hear that anon saying "oh, how unfortunate" with a smirk.

Sometimes I'm okay with the way I look but then I think that since I'm still at 85C, that I haven't lost enough. Idk, it's such a stupid thing to think about but here I am, thinking about it years after.

You can kind of tell if someone is fat by their band size but usually it's like, 40 inches or bigger. Anything under that probably doen't mean you're fat unless you're insanely apple shaped; honestly it really depends on how you carry your weight/body type.

Of course, as long as you aren't defending yourself by calling it empowering and understand that it isn't a feminist act. Nobody is going to be a perfect, by the book feminist who exclusively does feminist things, and any radfem should understand the pressure we're under to look/act certain ways and the ways we're punished for not doing so. Most of us are going to cave at some point, if it's not makeup it might be shaving, wearing feminine clothes, having long hair, dieting, etc.

>>440444
Radical feminism is pretty inherently trans inclusive in the sense that it include biological women, even if they claim to be men and have massive unchecked internalized misogyny. It just doesn't include men, which makes MTFs very mad and as a result they use 'terf' as a nasty slur that actually just means lesbian or feminazi most of the time.

>i’m just wondering if there are trans inclusive radical feminists

I think, hypothetically, this can exist. If you focus your version of "radical feminism" still on centering women and rejecting male control, you can still do this and never touch on trans issues. Some forms of Marxist feminist thought can be pretty close to radical feminism but focus almost entirely on practical organising, mutual aid and class analysis of patriarchy. I'd really like it to exist, anyway. If all radfem thought really boils down to is "men ain't shit" and hanging out with more women there should be a way to do that without even needing to think about trans rights.

i’m still not very familiar with feminism ideology generally, but it seems that if you were able to actually deconstruct the patriarchal ideas of our society, trans right wouldn’t be as much as an issue since violence toward MtF trans people might decline as a result.

It's naive of you to think that trans rights revolve around ending the homophobic beatings straight men dole out to men in dresses. That might constitute real discrimination, but it is the last of their concerns unless they want to use it for oppression points. The main issue MTF have is when women won't let males into their spaces, when they can't speak over women, when they can't control feminist rhetoric, when lesbians won't fuck them, when society won't fully indulge their bimbo fetish.

> It's naive of you to think that trans rights revolve around ending the homophobic beatings straight men dole out to men in dresses


is homophobia not the result of a patriarchal society that has to protect fragile masculinity though, or does it stem from something else? not trying to be contrary, i’m genuinely not well-versed in any sort of theory and just trying to understand.

i do find it to be problematic that people who don’t date transpeople are transphobes. and really all of the other things you listed. i feel that comes from their socialization as men prior to transitioning. and like you really can’t explain to someone (for example, a MtF) who wasn’t raised female all the intricate little things that are imposed upon us by society while growing up, like allowing men to speak over us and control the narrative and the assumption that we owe our bodies to people. and i feel like by simply acknowledging this, you’re automatically considered a “terf” by a lot of people, so maybe more “liberal” feminists just choose to ignore that and pretend like those problems don’t exist.

sorry to sort of be thinking out loud to you, this has literally been the first conversation i've felt like i can have on this topic. i'll start checking out the suggested reading.

Anon you can delete and repost fixing your typos without double posting if you do it within 30 minutes of submitting.

Btw, you asked for recommended reading - I agree with the other more GC anon's recommendation of Dworkin as your starter Pokemon, but if you really do enjoy economic analysis with a feminist bent I'd highly recommend Silvia Federici's work. This isn't even new stuff, you can avoid a lot of discussion of trans issues by just reading feminist literature from before the late 90s. You can access her major book for free here: https://libcom.org/files/Caliban%20and%20the%20Witch.pdf

Since we're talkin trans issues here, here's my dumb question: what pronoun do I use if speaking about someone who has transitioned in the past tense?

For example: One of my best friends from high school has transitioned (FTM). We don't live in the same state anymore and don't talk too much, and I understand their current pronouns yada yada. But if I'm telling someone a story about something we did in high school, do I say "she" if that's how they identified then? That is to say, "she" is who she was back then, "he" is who he is now. It feels disrespectful to refer to them as their previous identity, but also recasting the character in my memory with a different name and a different face feels like….I dunno, like re-writing history into a narrative I wasn't a part of? I'd say the easy answer is "they/them" but then they've changed their name as well. So like
>Jane was at my birthday party 10 years ago
>John was at my birthday party yesterday
But if I try to say "John was at my birthday party 10 years ago" well….that's not really true?

It feels like "I beat the Pewter City gym with my best bud, Charmander!" and now they're a Charizard. They're the exact same "pokemon", but when I beat the Pewter City gym they WERE a Charmander. If I tell the story of how I beat the Pewter City Gym but say it was with Charizard, then that's a completely different story and that's not how it actually happened at the time even, if they're the exact same "pokemon" I knew back then.

Does this question make any sense at all?

Long story short: It was originally created as a getaway for /cgl/ anons (Cosplay/Lolita) on 4chan after moot banned discussing drama on the board, and most people posting on /cgl/ were women. Lolcow got hijacked by a male admin who wanted to hit on the female userbase and allow shoe0nhead to spy on peoples' IPs posting in her thread (Yes, this is true and confirmed). So it continued to grow as a female oriented imageboard partially due to the Admin wanting to surround himself by girls admiring his dick but after he finally left around 3-4 years ago it just stayed that way because the userbase was largely female and so were the admins following his departure.

Nah, edf has more awareness than 4chan (any of the older, regular members anyway) and a lot of them are just putting on edgy personas.

And yeah it's always been pretty female oriented. Site's been around for 5 years now. I remember calling out dumb ass posters who started their posts off with "male here" (just like how you'd get called out if you said 'girl here' on 4chan lmao)and they would get banned. Pretty funny, never knew it would get super radfemmy and political.

How often do you guys change out/buy new underwear? Honestly I've worn the same underwear you buy in packs that my mum bought for me since high school. I didn't go out and buy underwear because my brain thought "why would I need new underwear when my current ones are fine?" until my cousin took me out a few years back to Aerie. I now have a mix of old and new, but I wonder if there's really a time limit as to how long you should keep underwear? I always use pantiliners and my IUD basically stopped my period so they're all (the new ones especially) relatively stain free. It just feels weird to throw them out since even if they're tattered, no one would know unless we're about to have sex (though I've already thrown out one that have holes and whatnot). I feel like it's so indulgent buying a lot of new underwear, but fuck, Aerie's undies are so comfortable I love it when I get new ones.

No. 441112

I think because you use panty liners that helps the longevity of the underwear. I don't really go off of how long I've owned a pair, mostly because I have shit memory and can't be assed to keep track of the dates of my underwear purchases lol. I just go by looks, if they look worn or threadbare, if they have holes, and/or if they're stained beyond redemption, then I toss them.

I wouldn't feel too bad buying underwear, honestly to me it's something you can never have too many of. I mean, it's not like you're ever not going to need them, they'll all get used eventually so whatever.

Do it! For real, you can never have too many pairs.
I actually worked at Aerie briefly and was ringing up a woman one day while we had the 10 for $35 deal running. She had around 6 pairs of underwear, totaling to $72, and I told her if she wanted to choose four more pairs it would be half the price. She somberly goes "Oh no, I don't need that many pairs" and proceeds to pay full fucking price for the six pairs. I still can't wrap my head around that like… what the fuck.

The "high" of opiates is not a true "high" like it is with smoking a lot of weed, or stimulants like meth/amphetamines, which is why it isn't as noticeable. It's more like a softening, it's a taking off of the edges of your day. You're gently buzzed, and everything feels slightly warmer and just subtly easier to deal with. That can be your chronic pain, but also slight niggles of day to day life. Locked your keys in the car? I don't feel quite as panicky as I normally would. Ate too much? It'll be okay, tomorrow I can try harder to stick to my diet. My partner's let me down or lied to me about something? Yeah, that'd normally super bum me out, but I guess I don't feel quite as bummed out as I otherwise would.

Imagine how you feel after a really nice, relaxing warm bath, just that little bit more open and tolerant. Now imagine you can go round in that warm feeling all the time, and yeah it wears off eventually but you can get more because of your prescription, and you can sleep better, and your chronic pain isn't quite as much of a bother, and you have codeine addiction. If you're starting out with an already stressful life, and you don't have great coping skills to begin with, it's even easier to fall into.

I think TERF predates tumblr, probably by a number of years, or at least wasn't invented there, but tumblr and now twitter users are the people who have seriously popularized and overused the word. It used to specifically refer to radfems who "excluded" or wanted to "exterminate" trans people, especially transwomen. I'm not sure but I think it dates to the 90s, that may just be an excuse used by TRAs to say it's not being used as a slur against anyone who disagrees tho since it gets used against people who may not be even considered gender crit I read the article on wikipedia on TERF out of curiosity and it's very biased in how they portray "opposition", go figure

Not true of opioids.

Sudden withdrawal from benzodiazepines such as clonazepam (klonopin), on the other hand, will due to the physical dependence, much like alcohol.

With all the data breaches with Equifax and now CapitalOne, I'm thinking of putting a freeze on my credit. I see now that websites say it's free to put your credit on freeze with all three major credit bureaus, but is it free for just the first time/a limited amount of time? Or in wake of these data breaches, it's now mandated to be free from here on out? If I want to unfreeze my account, do I have to pay a fee to unfreeze it temporarily, and then pay another fee to refreeze it?

I was only affected by the Equifax breach but my parents were affected by the CapitalOne one so I'm thinking of convincing them to freeze their credit as well but my dad lets my mom handle all of the accounts and her English isn't the best/I'm not the best at my native tongue so the whole freezing/unfreezing thing seems like such a fucking hassle to explain but I don't want them to get fucked over by it. Also, I have credit monitoring through Chase and Discover (have a credit card/bank acct with them), is this sufficient credit monitoring or should I enroll in a more thorough one?

No. 441638

>>441613
Supposedly they are free to freeze/unfreeze since late last year. As far as monitoring goes, if you have it with all three major bureaus there's not much else you can do on that front, and it's only going to tell you about major changes after the fact. There's also fraud protection that costs a monthly fee like Lifelock, though in my case it doesn't really seem worth it, but might be worth looking into for you. I want to do a credit freeze myself. I wasn't affected by the Equifax shit but I do have a longstanding CapitalOne account. I live overseas though so it's a pain in the ass since I don't have a US address anymore.

Also these constant credit breaches are fucking bullshit. I'm so mad at the fact that we're basically forced to take out credit and give sensitive identity information to these companies just to be able to get shit like housing and they don't even do the bare minimum to keep it secure.

Just wrinkles alone don't age you as much as you think so people mistakenly believe that looking older is because of them and not all the other changes on your face because they're less obvious.

I was homeschooled till age 9 because I asked to go to School. In my opinion, homeschooling should be illegal and counted as abuse. My parents were not qualified teachers, they weren't even university graduates and my mum dropped out in year 9. Safe to say, I didn't learn a thing and I still struggle with basic concepts like remembering the months of year and remembering which way to look across the road. That may sound extremely retarded but if you are isolated and are not stimulated or taught ANYTHING in the most critical years of development then you'd end up this retarded, too. And socially, I have suffered big time. I'm very cringe and make others uncomfortable in social situations because I wasn't around any other children as kid.

Don't homeschool.

I was very briefly homeschooled due to depression in middle school, but my mom used a program to help me stay where I needed to be so I could go back. I ended up being ahead lmao so the rest of the school year was easy as shit. But in general, I have a pretty positive opinion on it. There’s online programs for kids/parents that help make sure the lessons are similar to normal school, there’s usually groups in bigger cities that will meet up for “field trips” so kids make friends.. plus where I live there’s like daytime “camp” sort of programs that teach interesting/unconventional things, like about nature, for homeschool kids. It can be great if you put in the effort.

anons who have bleached their hair

depends on how fried your hair is. it will keep getting damaged if you keep doing it over and over.

Not race baiting, but are you Asian? If so virgin Asian hair is EXTREMELY difficult to bleach. It tends to be very porous, plus the undertones often fuck about during the bleaching process and end up giving awful results that are difficult to tone to a neutral - go to a salon. Even if you’re not Asian you’re best off going to a salon since you have black hair.

If you keep doing it at home then at best you’ll get your hair to a very rusty coloured marigold, and this is with lots of bleaching sessions and damage. Even if you tone you most likely won’t get a good result since you can’t see how you’re laying down the colour and it will end up patchy which isn’t a good foundation for laying down permanent/semi-permanent colours

Best case scenario you manage to evenly bleach your hair and it turns out amazing you’re still risking chemical burn on your scalp because of the huge amount of bleach, industry grade bleach is different from consumer grade and salons also have access to products which help minimise damage. If you do go to a salon DO NOT let them bleach it to a very light tone all in one go, that’s a retarded idea and only a hairdresser who cares very little for hair would even humour the idea

tldr go have a professional do it, never a good idea to use harmful chemicals if not trained, especially not on your body.

You’ll have a hard time maintaining pink, and getting your hair light enough to even try causes irreversible damage. Honestly, with the huge costs that come from dye, bleach, and general maintenance, have you considered setting aside money and finding a good wig? It’d end up cheaper in the long term and the dye would hold very well and the colour wouldn’t fade nearly as poorly nor quickly as your own hair would

How do I learn to dress nice? How do I learn how to do my hair? Pls ELI5 cause I'm stupid and desperate.

My mom dressed me until I was 16 or so, we were poor and I'm slightly on the spectrum so whenever I tried to put together my own outfits they were ridiculous, so I looked like a horse girl final boss.
I moved out on my own and finally learned how to do my own makeup, but I still dress like a non-passing trap and my hair is a thick, frizzy mess.

I don't have money to hire a stylist but I look downright embarrassing and would like to look nice when I start my new job. I tried curating a pinterest board but that is really hard to translate irl because all the items that were similar to pictures always look a little bit off, enough that it ruins outfits and fits me poorly. I've tried YouTube for hair and fashion but it didn't work for me either since people were throwing around theories about body types etc and I can't get it until someone shows me something I can repeat exactly.

No. 442297

I think /g/ has a fashion advice thread. You could also look on Reddit; there's a sub called TodayIWore where people post their outfits so that might be helpful?

Once you start your new job you could look if you like what your female co-workers are wearing and then buy clothes similar to theirs.
As for your hair: you don't need to do fancy hairstyles. They just shouldn't look messy and dirty.
Search on YouTube for hair tutorials for work or for frizzy hair or something and then find someone who has similar hair to yours and copy that (also look what products they use for their hair). If your hair is long maybe you should cut a chunk up, that should help bringing them back to life.
Sorry for the shitty advice, I know you wanted something specific but that's really difficult without knowing what you do, how you look etc.
good luck and don't stress too much about it.

I'm using dating apps and I'm looking for a long term relationship from it. Guys seem to want to talk for 3-4 days and then invite me to meet. Is that normal? Or are they wanting to hook up? I guess I could just ask on the first date "what are you looking for" but I kind of expect to be lied to.

Also I don't know how to be less awkward during the dates. I feel like I'm introducing myself over and over again and I'm starting to feel like I'm being interviewed. Not sure if anyone has advice for that.

meeting early is normal. It's actually a good sign and shows interest. If they weren't interested, they'd let the conversation fall asleep or ghost you. It takes some bravery to ask to meet, too. They want to take it to the next level and allow a real connection face-to-face.
I learnt from dating apps, the longer you chat, the more you build up an image of the other that may not be real at all. That's why meeting is important and I appreciate a guy asking for it.

Your nervosity is normal. Yeah, you should look up guides, there are infinite guides and how-tos for online dating. Everyone struggles with that. The people you talk to do, too.

i was talking to my bf of three years for months before we met up and he was completely okay waiting until i was more comfortable (first red flag would be them rushing to meet you without any actual connection on a romantic level apart from wanting to fuck or after talking for like a week)
when we did eventually meet we just went to an arcade and played some games for a while and it was really fun. i’m autistic so in general talking to people makes me act weird so something like playing games in an arcade, rather than a dinner date for example, takes the stress away from trying to constantly have something interesting/funny to say, (which almost always makes things awkward therefore making you even more anxious) and you still get to have a good time and see if there’s a connection before rushing straight into a full on relationship/hooking up

Is living with your parents after high school a big deal in the US? I talked to a few people who mentioned feeling bad for living with their parents after 20, and someone told me people leave their parents' houses early.
I got surprised with that information because where I live is pretty normal to live with your parents until you get married, after your mid-20s, or after getting a really well paying job that makes possible you afford living by yourself (which is rare for most people). Living with strangers as "roomates" isn't really common. But your parents expect you to get married from 25-30 and excpect you to move with your partner.

but it really can depend on cultural influences or social or religious beliefs. but what doesnt change is the price of the stuff we have to pay for here. a close friend growing up was allowed to be at home until she graduated with her doctorate while another was made to move out right as soon as she was 18.

Does anyone under 40 use that "Neighborhood" app, and does it amount to anything? Basically, is it a decent way to bitch and moan and get results? This bitch living in the house behind me constantly talks (yells) every day, esp. on the phone, and right now her kids are screeching outside at 11pm so loud that I can hear it through closed windows.

Obviously criticizing a mom's parenting is a ticket to Hell and idfk what to do. I wanna sleep. The gossip she yells about isnt even good. If it was good shit, I wouldnt be so annoyed…can I do anything without getting bitched out by a bitch?

Is there anyway to tell someone is lying about having ADHD? I totally believe in the validity of mental illness and support going to get professional help. I’m sure there’s no clear cut way to tell but someone I know has made me suspicious over the last couple of years about whether they actually have it or just like the meds for it.

That's why people with low self esteem should take a long break from dating/sex/relationships/interacting with men in general. >>443305 seems to be having sex with men who aren't even committed to her, that is easily avoidable.

Personally I fixed my self esteem by deleting social media. Suddenly I could no longer seek or expect validation in comments on my pics, men could no longer hit me up randomly, since I don't have a massive social circle irl I stayed single as a natural consequence and learned to keep myself happy without their approval. Going cold turkey with men is a real option, you don't have to go through life hoping men will suddenly treat you well and fix your self esteem for you.

i grew up with a gas stove and ours always worked like you ignite it first and you'd hear a click click click and then the flame would pop up and then use the temp to make the flame larger or smaller. you really have to feel it out though, if you're feeling really insecure about the temps i would get a candy thermometer and put a pan of water on the stove and see what heat levels get you to the temps you're looking for. you really have to just feel it out if you're used to electric stove tops.
the main thing is to make sure you don't let the gas run without it igniting otherwise your house could fill up with gas fumes and cause an explosion. if you ever smell a really strong gas smell, leave immediately and let someone know.
enjoy it though, a gas flame is actually really fun to cook with when you get the hang of it and you can do dumb shit like roast marshmallows inside.

i met a guy at the beginning of the year at university, we shared a few classes, talked casually and had gone out to eat mcdonald's and stuff from time to time, but he isn't what i would consider a friend, we didn't even talk outside of uni apart from him texting me from time to time.
the thing is i have this loud, deep gut feeling about this guy that makes me want to stay away from him as much as possible, and i don't exactly know why.

he changed majors later so we're not in the same classes anymore, but i still ran into him in the hallways and such and we'd hung out very casually inside my school. i'd casually told him about a particular personal situation i was going through at the time, and he'd told me about some of his own issues, but then again, i don't consider him friends. up until then things were fairly normal i guess, but things started to get, uh, weird for me.

for instance:
- he's a bit too touchy-feely for my liking. i'm a big hugger and affectionate person but after a shitty situation i went through recently i've stopped being openly affectionate to people i haven't been friends with for long, him included. but he'd randomly hug me or play "slap" me or bump my shoulders (i did ask him to stop)
- the very first week we knew each other he texted me asking for relationship advice at 11 pm.
- he'd seek me out A LOT inbetween classes, he'd text me that he could see me chilling in my classroom.
- he invited me to his grandmother's funeral. he'd been bitching a lot about her to me a month or two prior bc she was living at home with his family due to being very very ill, so when he told me that she'd passed away and that he was devastated i listened to him and gave him my condolences, to which he proceeded to thank me and GIVE ME THE ADDRESS OF THE FUNERAL AND THE TIME THEY'D BE HOLDING THE SERVICE. i thought he was joking at first but i found out he was dead serious, we hadn't even known each other for two months when he did this. of course i declined, he didn't think it was odd or strange for him to do this.
- for Friendship Day (dumbass commercial holiday celebrated in my country) he texted me "happy friendship day" and a heart emoji. i haven't even opened the text, he sent it like two weeks ago or so and i haven't seen him in over a month, not even at college. i didn't want to reply bc i don't want to leave him on "seen" but i also don't want him to think he's my friend just to be nice either.

honestly the funeral thing is what creeped me out the most and when the gut feeling started. i haven't seen him around in quite a while but now i'm scared i'll run into him at college. if he seriously thinks we're friends bc we've hung out very casually once or twice and i told him about something going on in my life atm then i don't want to keep validating his delusion, but i also don't want to be rude and hurt his feelings. yet i can't, i can't shake off this horrible gut feeling that if i piss him off he'll do something bad or turn out to be a creep. what the fuck do i do anons.

In my country we celebrate friendship day on the 20th of July, do you happen to be from south america, anon? (Or maybe Spain?). You don't have to answer if you don't want to.

I'm afraid I'm the worst at giving advice, specially if it involves confronting people and stuff like that, so I don't think I can be of much help; BUT, if I was in your position I would do the same I always do with those weird hollow college friendships~: slowly cut contact. I just stop replying people's messages. Or I reply like once a month until they get used to it, and assume that's just how I am. And if I then see them in person around college, I either ignore them (tbh depends on my mood or how much I like the person) or if I don't have a choice, I just talk to them in a friendly way, to show them that even if I don't reply their messages, it's not because I hate them or anything. I hope I explained that well enough, I feel like it's a little confusing lol.
You can also use having to study as an excuse to avoid him. My boyfriend literally cuts contact with everyone for months while he has to study. His friends are used to it, and they just accept it.

I have to admit though that I'm a bit of a bitch and don't care THAT much about how people feel when I don't answer their messages. But tbh they are just hollow college friends that I know I will never interact with again unless we share a class. Sorry for the extremely shitty "advice", but the only thing I can say is don't worry that much about him and his feelings if you are not interested in becoming his friend.
My best friend was friends with a guy similar to what you describe, and he eventually confessed to her and basically became obsessed with her. He was super open about his problems and self-diagnosed mental illnesses, very touchy-feely (like, putting his hands around my friend's waist and stuff like that), a weeb, and pretty shy. He even tried desperately to befriend all of her friends, for some reason. It's like he wanted to invade every bit of her life. I think the last time she saw him, he kissed her against her will (it was her first kiss) and after that she finally decided to stop interacting with him. It was very difficult for her to cut contact after all that, but she somehow managed to erase the guy from her life. He still stalks her social media, probably.
Not saying the guy you describe will end up like that, but I've met a few men with more or less that same personality, and for some reason they seem desperate to befriend people (specially women) and are very insecure and emotionally troubled.

If he tells you about how alone he feels, how everything bad happens to him, how he can't get a gf and how he started therapy because he is lost and depressed, run away and don't look back anon lmao. I think that's the recipe for "he was so quiet, polite and shy! I can't believe he murdered his family!"

Again, sorry for the shitty advice. I hope a wiser anon can help you.

it's cool, your advice wasn't all that bad. i'm used to clingy sadboy "muh loneliness is killing me (and i'm making you responsible for it)"-types so i can recognize them like my reflection in the mirror, but so far he hasn't ticked off enough boxes in the sadboy requirement field for me to be seriously alarmed (he hasn't been explicitly flirtrarious 4 example, probably bc i've been very vocal and explicit to him about my loving long term relationship).

being cold and slowly ghosting him has been my go-to for this situation lately so i'll keep on doing that per your advice. plus i've been very busy so it's not like i don't have an excuse. if i happen to run into him in the halls of uni i'll be decently polite, i'm not gonna be a bitch to him for no reason (nor do i want to).

I found this a while ago and as someone who can't match colors for shit this is incredibly helpful.

I'm wondering if there are any similar helpful charts whatever for fashion?

It's not a list exactly, and some Jewish surnames are found in some areas of the Jewish diaspora and not others, but yeah, there are common ones you get to know if you are Jewish or know a lot of Jews. Steins, bergs, etc, some Hebrew-based ones, some less obvious ones like "Bloom" and "Wolf." My family's is one that's Hebrew based and not as common as some, so people often hear it and assume I'm Iranian/Pakistani/etc, but other Jews will see the way it's spelled and know. If you don't live in an area with much of a Jewish presence I can see how you might not spot it though.

There are some well-known ones and as >>445318 said they share some common features, but you can't always tell. I'm from former Yugoslavia and families here mixed a lot because you kinda weren't supposed to be open about your religion, and here you can absolutely be Jewish without having a stereotypical Jewish surname since it only depends on what your mom is.

I'm from the Balkans too, most people who were Jewish had a German surname with -er, which are pretty common, and German surnames aren't unusual here since a lot of people went to work in Germany.

No. 445371

>>445247
There's some common prefixes / suffixes associated with longer Jewish surnames, but not all of them are like that, some of them can be standalone but some of them have a suffix at the end (-man, -berg, -blatt, -vich etc)- e.g. Schneiderman, Rosenberg, Goldenberg, Ackerman, Zuckerberg

but there's a lot of Jewish people with normie a f non Jewish sounding names that could be used for a non ashkenazi person (Miller, Levitt, Levine). My cousin is married to a guy with a surname that's got a -witz at the end and he's not jewish, he's of polish descent. So the above listed suffixes and prefix examples aren't always used for Ashkenazi people.

How was it for you anons? Did you dress up or go in normal clothing? How do you handle interacting with people in character (this sort of makes me the most nervous- I'm fucking awful at it)?

It was okay. I went in my normal clothes, but there's a good chunk of people who show up in cosplay and you appreciate their hard work and skills.

do you mean a regular guy who's had trouble finding romance up until meeting you or a guy who literally self identifies as an incel and participates in their circle online? if the former, it can work out but just make sure you look out for red flags, usually they'll be a little insecure and doubtful that you actually like them but if they don't show any signs of misogyny or virgin rage you're probably fine.
a guy who proudly labels himself an incel though? no fucking way. chances are he'll still hold their fucked up beliefs and be in contact with his old incel buddies to talk shit about you to them. it isn't worth trying to fix men like that

What do you think about a man who is on the conventionally attractive side, or at least used to be, but purposely only goes out of his way to date very unconventionally attractive women? I mean older women, but not the kind with good upkeep to their personal appearance, but those with very ratty hair and extremely wrinkly ruggeded skin and average to slender body types.

Can't speak on Mango, but I like Uniqlo a lot for their clean lines and basics, similar to Benetton. I think both of them are overpriced by maybe £10-5 on what each item is truly worth, but the quality stills shit all over fast fashion retailers like Boohoo/PrettyLittleThing/Missguided. Zara used to be much better quality a decade ago, and again is overpriced but the manufacturing is still better. I don't shop there as style wise it's still a bit too trendy for me. Luckily I'm quite good at spotting good secondhand Uniqlo on eBay.

Only downside is that admitting I like Uniqlo and Benetton really drives home how not in my early 20s I am anymore. At least it's not as "mid-30s first-time-mother" fashion as wearing Boden or Matalan though.

> Only downside is that admitting I like Uniqlo and Benetton really drives home how not in my early 20s I am anymore.


This genuinely made me laugh. I'm approaching my 30s and I'm still at odds when it comes to changing my style to a more age appropriate version. Actually, I don't even know what that means. How to dress when you're in late 20s, early 30s etc. I try to take inspiration from online magazines and online shops themselves but I don't get any realistic answers. It's either too office wear or some romantic prairie fairy look or whatever is en vogue at the moment.

Also, I've always had a boring, academic fashion style so maybe I don't need to change anything. My wardrobe is like what Bill Gates would wear if he were a woman.

Benetton (and Geox) used to be stuff my mum would buy me because it was good quality children's clothes/footwear and Uniqlo didn't exist yet back then, but even as a child I remember it being weirdly staid and boxy compared to the trendier clothes my classmates would wear, and it's still the impression I have of it now with their adult lines.

I love Uniqlo and Benetton because I swear to god they have the only tops and jeans that fit me right, aren't too long or too wide, don't bunch up at the knees and don't have long ass hems that I'm not sure if I'm supposed to tuck in or not. I don't know if that means I have an early 30s first time mum body, but whenever I shop at, say, Mango, H&M, Zara etc it always looks like it's meant for someone else's body. I have a very straight body with narrow hips, slightly broad shoulders, strong thighs and a short torso so maybe I'm just not shaped like an instathot, idk.
