anons this guy im close to is literally perfect and so kind, respectful, considerate, loyal, so funny, dislikes porn, is sympathetic to radfem views, is intelligent, charismatic, not materialistic, etc but i can't be with him and i feel like total shit that his energy is wasted on me when there are other girls that i know would be so much better for him and he's such a rare caliber of guy that really is in such high demand by other high quality women. he's such a high quality person that cares so deeply for other people. easily is the most empathetic man i've ever met. but i'm not even like a nerd and he kind of is so our interests are not there, and severely complicating circumstances prevent me from even being with a guy again and i keep unintentionally hurting him/breaking his heart and it's all for naught bc i literally know women like one of you guys would be better for him. he's suffering for no reason bc of me when i'm not what he needs and i'm literally making his life worse ffs.
i feel so terrible. idk wtf to do. i feel so guilty but like he's so much better off with someone else and i can't be that person for him and i feel so bad that i can't be.

i ordered a bunch of expensive salon haircare a few days ago and it just arrived today and for some reason they sent me two of everything. i even double-checked the packing list to make sure i didn't accidentally order double but apparently they just fucked up. i'm so confused but i guess it's a good start to the weekend for me?
please tell me about it. my upstairs neighbors are insane
. they are constantly hammering stuff into the walls and last night they were actually fighting for real.
i feel you, anon. i'm crossing over into late 20s territory and have an internal freakout every time i notice a fine line on my face. i can't even remember if i've always had them or they're new but i'm slathering about 6 products on my face daily now.
the feminist inside me wants to not care about gray hairs and wrinkles because it's all a construct to make us more appealing to men as we age, but alas, my self-esteem is still a slave to the whole system.

Don't flush tampons, guys. It's common sense.
Also: I fucking hate women who hover while they pee. There's literally no reason to do it- Mythbusters proved that toilet seats are clean surfaces. All it does is get piss all over the seat and floor. If you're that much of a prissy princess whose thighs can't touch the seat, then put some paper down. Don't hover and get piss all over the place.
If you think you're a "clean hoverer" you're wrong. You've fucked up and pissed on the seat, you just didn't notice.
I've gotten in with my bra on so many times, also nearly turned it on when I was holding my phone directly under it>>443086
That or you don't realise the seat is up and you pretty much fall in.
Yeah I know it's not very feminist of me either, but I find that making sure I wash my face and put a night cream on before bed is helping me sleep because it establishes a routine where I'm not looking at a phone screen immediately before trying to sleep. This is good for my depresso, and the idea that it's "self-care" is also a useful meme for the same reason. Self-neglect is a big part of my illness and my teeth are now starting to really suffer from the accumulated effect of poor brushing habits.
Look you need really solid self-esteem to be an uberradfem and a bitch is just very sad all the time, allow me my nice smelling potions pls am sorry
Flushable just means they can be flushed. Doesn't mean nonclogging.
Flushable wipes and tampons will build up in your plumbing or the municipal plumbing clogging it eventually.

It's bizarre how you could get into a public altercation and no matter how minor, if someone decides to record it you'll have people across the world extremely invested in it to the extent that they try to ruin your life over it despite having never met you
I mean call me paranoid but I'm scared to live in the world that we've created
its wild. people try to reinforce stranger danger with their kids and stuff but are simultaneously okay with that kid having a facebook or twitter or whatever.
people out here listing every like or fear, geo tag everywhere they go, talk about where they work and the school they go to, list their actual name, location and birthdate and use the same handles for everything and still get mad that 'stalkers' can find out their information.

I hate that social media encourages/even pressures people to constantly post and overshare. It makes it so easy for strangers to stalk and find you.
Might be extreme but I think parents shouldn't let their kids use the internet until they're adults or access it unsupervised. There's just too many bad things that are easily accessible. Also efame is kinda stupid and dangerous.

People will also turn their entire social media profiles into being about their kids under the guise of “I’m just sharing with their extended family who don’t live nearby,” meanwhile they’re friending everybody they’ve ever met and now all those people know their child’s nicknames, favorite foods, and what part of town they go to school in.

I heard you can't really use Dawn on cats a lot and she's got quite a few fleas, so I think it would take a few sessions to get rid of them. I'm also trying to avoid soaps at the moment (I probably should have mentioned that) since she's got a lot a scabs/few scratch wounds and I don't want it to hurt her or dry out her skin too much.
I see this a lot, outside of art communities (since I don't participate them). I think it comes from anxiety due to the recession. It is really, really hard to want to commit yourself to one thing, because what if it doesn't pan out? The recession overstimulated back-up-plan culture, to the point where people are legit scared to specialize.
I can see how this might be so much worse in unstable fields like art.

TIL that my great grandpa was almost killed by the mafia in the 50s because his brother had committed suicide to avoid being killed by them and he owed the mafia a massive amount of debt. Just very interesting to learn. I did hear that he tended to take no shit and told everyone off who got his goat without a care in the world so I wouldn't be surprised if he told the mafia to go fuck themselves if they tried to force him to pay his brother's debt then they put a hit on him as a result.
I kind of wish I could meet him one day if time machines ever get invented.

When I was studying abroad in college, I was horribly depressed and isolated myself from my classmates as a result.
I started talking to one of my friends back at home more and more, first through text and then we started phoning each other. I brought my 3DS with me, so we started to play Animal Crossing together. We would be on the phone with each other while going on little "dates" in each other's towns and it was the closest thing I had to hanging out with any of my friends back at home. We would both wake up early/go to bed super late just to talk and play with each other. I'm no longer friends with this girl, but I often think back on those days.
I'm playing Pocket Camp a lot more these days, and I really hope they bring over a lot of the new furniture from here into New Horizones- especially the new summer festival furniture. I'd love to set up a little festival area in the summer and play with my friends. It's so lame but I love Animal Crossing so much. I feel so at peace when I play it, and it also lets me indulge in my need for new and cute things via furniture collecting.

she sounds amnesic anon
is she alzheimer or smth?
I actually managed to find a photo that some rando on eBay has for some reason (there's multiple press photos of him up for sale bc he was a well known lawyer in a big city, my family doesn't have them so I'm not 100% sure who does, but they're expensive so I don't wanna buy them, I'm wondering if I can PM the eBay lister and tell them that I'm his relative who's interested in buying a couple of them- and that I'm also a poor college student so pls give me a discount) that's got a caption on the side saying how he got shot, he was wounded by only one of three bullets after being attacked by two gunmen and the one bullet got him in the thigh. probably was the mafia if there were 2 gunmen tbh
he and his brother were both lawyers but his brother was the unsuccessful one except for his party life and his gambling which him into debt in the first place, he got my great grandpa a lot of clients tho, and brother later killed himself with a gun when he racked up a lot of debt.
I'd post pics I found but I don't wanna dox myself lol
My mother's bff was murdered at 18 in the early 80s. When I tried looking up any info, all I found was the old crime scene photo and a news clipping for sale on eBay. It's a bizarre industry.
I just took really good screenshots. Good luck.
idk how people are using that "meme" now but the term as I knew it means… anyone who you'd say "peaked in high school" basically hasn't accomplished anything since, they're just a loser or a normie at best.
Sometimes it means the really smart kid whose grades don't mean anything at age 25 where he hasn't really gotten anywhere in life because the real world doesn't care if you got an A on a pop quiz once
Other times it means that 'popular' asshole who still clings to their old 'alpha' image who will post 'nostalgic' HS moments shit on Facebook and look like a dumbass because it's been 10 years and nobody cares anymore.
People (or at least I) use this in a disparaging way and anyone who actually
cares about peaking in high school is probably category B and needs to get over themselves
Because she's "an adult" who "should know better" which is apparently shorthand for "weebs can shit on her out of jealousy as much as they want".
I don't even know what she's doing that's so scandalous, the girl's been a cringefest since she started YouTube so I don't see this as a huge surprise.
Venus may have issues but is far removed from where she was so I'm surprised people still shit on her the way they do.
In some respects I can't fully blame venus when I experienced abuse at the hands of a narcissistic parent who still refuses to acknowledge what she did to me to this day. I almost feel a sense of pity for her. Plus she's not really doing much milky enough to warrant outrage from me, at least.
>>444645>she's completely dysfunctional
18 years of physical and emotional abuse will do that to you, yeah.
>I have no idea why anyone would be jealous of venusangelic's life
Because weebs from PULL are loons who base their entire self-worth on whether they get to go to glorious Nippon or not.
I just don't see her ever getting any better in her current space. It's like a state of completely arrested development.
And are PULL users really that unironically weeaboo? Nothing about her life is enviable. She has no job, she's not a particularly popular online personality, she's not wealthy, her husband isn't attractive. Surely their entire raison d'etre isn't just living in Japan full stop right?
The whole site was basically founded by jealous weebs who hated Dakota for making it big in glorious Nippon. They also have a passionate hatred for several weeb snowflakes and always complain about the exact same shit>Venus is ugly and ageing like milk just like her mother lmao, she also doesn't speak any of the languages she claims to, including her native language>Kenna is ugly, fat and too dark, she doesn't appreciate Japanese culture like I do, she doesn't deserve to live in Japan>Dakota is ugly, racist and ageing like milk (you're noticing the pattern now), her hair is thin and she doesn't speak good Japanese as well as she claims to>Sharla is ugly and ageing like milk, she dresses like shit and doesn't try to fit in with superiour nipponese fashion (and if she did she'd be branded a weeb like Venus)>Taylor is OLD and a desperate sugarbaby

I'm thinking about selling some video games and books I don't care about anymore or never really cared about. I feel dumb about buying games I never really played because of my lack of free time or motivation back then. I remember selling a lot of manga I liked a lot a few years ago and regretting it but now that I think about it it was a good decision because I knew I wouldn't read them again anyway. Hopefully I'll get a lot of money from that.
All of this is reminding me of how much I don't like downloading games instead of buying physical copies, it's not taking physical space so that's convenient but I don't like not being able to share, give or sell games I don't want anymore.

>>445310>hair vitamins>breast growth
Are you sure you took vitamins?
I only gained in my boobs, the rest of me stayed the same! Based on the research I did, some people did experience small weight gain (3-5 pounds) but it was water weight. Basically if you take too high of a dosage it might cause your body to retain water, which leads to bloating. From what I can tell the people who claimed to gain weight from msm were the ones taking high dosages (3000-8000 mg). If you take the recommended amount (1000-2000 mg) then your weight shouldn't be effected (minus the boobs). The brand I used was called OptiMSM and I took 2000 mg, if that helps.
I'd recommend giving it a try, it only cost like $10! For the best results you have to take it with vitamin c (so with orange juice or a vitamin c supplement). There's only four main side effects that people who take it experience: >Will give you a headache if you don't drink water during the day. If I didn't drink water after taking my dosage I would get a mild headache, but after drinking a few sips I was fine. >Can give you weird dreams if you take it before bed. Some people get nightmares, but mostly it's just really vivid/realistic dreams. Should be fine if you take it earlier in the day tho.>Can make body hair grow really fast, I found myself shaving a little more often after I started taking it. >Can mess with your menstrual cycle; my period is normally super regular but after taking msm it came almost a week late; but it was also not as heavy and I didn't have cramps.
Obviously every body is different, but msm seems to pretty consistent in its results and i'd trust it
Oh my god!!!!! I LOVE him!!! Didnt one of his paintings sell for really
high at the Basel Art Fair this year? You know what, a lot of my friends my age dislike him but I think his paintings are weirdly expressive through their simplicity. We've been seeing a ressurgance of kitsch/goodtaste-badtaste (obvs through street fashion in the past 5 years but also in Fine arts in the last 3 years) and while Katz's paintings are mostly from the 70's, I feel like they have this pseudo-kitsch feel that 90s/2000s lounge era à la Sade/Gala/women wearing white tuxedos drinking wine have… Idk if any of this makes sense, I'm tipsy but like… anon, you're so lucky.
Damn now I feel bad for shitting on him like the uncultured piece of shit that I am on the vent thread LOL
I'm glad you like his work! I'll do my best to write the best summary of him and his work just for you anon.

Did you buy it online/where do you get it?
I’m so intrigued.
I got mine from amazon (link if you wanna check it out:https://www.amazon.com/Kala-Health-Supplement-Inflammation-Allergies/dp/B000NPKFCA
I used about a teaspoon a day and it lasted for about a month. There's three forms (pill, powder, and crystal). Powder/crystal work better, and the only differences between them is that crystals dissolves in water easier which makes it easier to drink. Not gonna lie, it doesn't taste the best but it's drinkable lol. I've seen the pill form at grocery stores in the vitamin aisle, but I think the powder forms are only sold at health stores that cater to selling supplements. Not sure about other sites that sell it.
I have a "crazy" story I have been telling everyone. My friends, roommates, coworkers. Lol. I will post it here.
My ex, my bestie, and their friend Ben went to undergrad together. At that time, my ex was not very nice to my friend Ben. However, I didn't become friends with Ben until after I broke up with my ex and they all graduated from undergrad.
My bff and Ben had a lot in common. Naturally, Ben developed a crush on my bff. However, my bff didn't like him back and it caused a lot of problems between them.
Instead, my bff liked my ex better even though they had less things in common. This hurt Ben's feelings.
Eventually, my bff developed a crush on my ex. The kicker was that my bff isn't the type of guy my friend likes. So Ben was really jealous after that. Sad :/

does anyone have advice for building your life from the ground up after being stuck in a deeply dysfunctional and abusive household your whole life? i'm only 22 but i've missed so many milestones and haven't learned to live a responsible life, because i've been trapped in a cycle of retraumatization for over 11 years. i'm moving out soon and i just don't know where to start or how to live like an adult and everything feels overwhelming. i know im not helpless, and i have agency and responsibility over the way my life goes from here on out; i just don't know how to rebuild my life, and i don't really know anyone who's been in a similar situation who i could turn to for advice. sorry if this doesn't belong here
anon, congrats on finding an opportunity to get out of your abusive
household. have you had the chance to go to college at all or any work experience? do you have a support system of friends at all? if no to all of those questions then what i would first work on is finding an entry-level job such as retail (the holidays are coming up so that should be pretty easy) so you can at least have some money in your pocket, establish a routine, and start building your resume.
i think in your situation it will help to make a list of short-term and long-term goals and figure out what individual steps you need to take in order to achieve them. accomplishing the small steps instead of looking at the big picture can really help when you're feeling overwhelmed.
just try to take it a day at a time.
I have no idea what video you guys are talking about but I hope that this stupid ass bitch gets some serious punishment for being such an abusive
piece of shit.
She uploaded a video of her doing the plastic wrap challenge with her doberman but accidentally uploaded unedited footage. I saw it on Twitter and it made me so upset to watch. I'm glad she fucked up and uploaded the wrong footage. Imagine what goes on when the camera isn't rolling at all.
The flip between her fake ass happy persona to being fucking PISSED at her dog. Grabbing him and knocking him to the floor and spitting on him (or what sounded like spitting). She overreacted to what looked like her dog just trotting over and wanting to give his beloved over a little lick on the face. Obviously if you don't like these behaviors, you should train them out. Occasional negative reinforcement is one thing, the way she reacted is a whole other thing.
Agree, my ex bought into the Tumblr asexuality thing hardcore just because of low libido. We had sex pretty regularly, like once a week, at his initiation, and he would enjoy himself and cum, but because he didn't think about sex 24/7 he thought he was ace. When I told him that was stupid he was like "not uh!!! I read asexual people can still like and have sex!!!!" (It's even funnier when you realise he used to be super pornsick.)
It's so fucking weird people put any amount of thought into such a non-issue. My husband and I have relatively low libidos but it's never even come up in conversation. We have sex when we feel like it a couple times a week but otherwise we like doing other activities together more. I'd never on my life say I was ace.
I think this is more due to people wanting labels to feel speshul. >>445869
I swear 99% of "asexuals" aren't asexual at all. Or they're weebs who masturbate and don't want real relationships.

Honestly not sure if this belongs in this thread or the stupid questions one, but I'm putting it here because it just came out as a stupid thought in my head.
I wonder why people who buy those huge, guady looking diamond rings as an obvious flaunt of their wealth don't just buy a whole ass ring made of diamond? I found this ring, which was unveiled earlier this year and was cut from a lab grown diamond, but diamonds really aren't all that rare anyway so… Assuming someone doesn't grow at the rate that Feebz does, it's not like they would outgrow the ring, and diamonds are the hardest material blah blah shit.
I hate diamonds but now I'm sad because I think this ring actually looks cute lol
don't feel bad, you can love someone but not respect them. it's not something you owe anyone. i mean, do
respect their boundaries esp if you know they're bad at setting them but on a principle level you don't need to respect his personality or whatever.

don't tell him until after you meet. too many stories of things not working out after the first meeting. many people are much more talkative online, for example, and are autistic as fuck irl. he could also turn out to be a creep.
for the record, I'm very wary of relationships formed online with men, after spending a couple months in threads of guys sharing tips on how to emotionally manipulate foreign women for nudes/sex under the guise of feelings/love. so this might be an overreaction.

This is true
I've noticed that so many alt right/white nationalist guys are also weebs and have an asian/japanese fetish, even knew a guy like that. he hated black people and arabs but worshipped japan.>>446326
exactly. lauren southern was always saying how women need to be traditional and get married in their early 20s and have babies because focusing on a career will end up making them miserable and by the time they hit 27 they will be too old to get a man (and really she was paraphrasing what jordan peterson had said). meanwhile she's pushing 25 and prioritizing her journalism career, and getting butthurt when people ask her why she's not married.
yeah wait until you two have met
not even because of what the other anon said about manipulation but just wait how you get along irl
i used to have a mad crush on this girl i've known online for years but when we met there was oddly enough no attraction, we just ended up as really close friends
some things vibe differently in text and you might just interpret messages more to your liking and make him fit more into your type than he is

The MBTI stuff can be fun but I can never take it too seriously because I know this dumbass who's obsessed with being an ~INTJ~ and plasters it everywhere and talks about how super speshul she is all the time. She wants to be an edgelord so badly and it makes me laugh to think of her reading this shit about how INTJs are such cool edgy masterminds when she's airheaded as fuck, like legit one of the dumbest people I know, and flies off the handle because she has no control over her emotions and is insecure as hell.
Lmao. I think MBTI is bullshit. I would even go so far as to say astrology is more believable to me.
I've taken a bunch of different MBTI tests and gotten different answers but I still get INTJ the most, and yeah it fits me BUT every thing you read about MBTI says INTJs are ~super rare and speshul~ yet almost every female I've ever seen who has taken an MBTI test has gotten INTJ. Not to mention one of the traits of being INTJ is supposed be that you're a critical thinker yet they just buy into all this Myers-Briggs bullshit even though there is literally no scientific evidence to back it up.
It's my birthday in a week and I bought myself my gift this year because I had the spare money to buy myself tickets for two concerts/shows next year which I'm super excited to see. At least one good thing to be an adult and be able to buy shit for yourself that sparkles a lot of joy lol >>446433
how the fuck did this stupid joke start anyway? Wasn't it musk or pewds? I swear both of them are one of the biggest reasons why internet humor went to shit.

I wish money was no object to me so I could buy beautiful toys without a second thought.
Also supposedly an INTJ and I feel the same way. For what's apparently the most rare and super special type it sure seems to be common. I'd say 50% of the women I know who take the test get INTJ.
Just seems like astrology for people who think they're smart to me.

My mother likes to boomerpost on Facebook. She has over 4,000 friends and over 5,000 followers I believe. She gets constant thirst from the absolute nastiest guys. I looked through her photos on her phone (she lets me), and today I found memes of "feminism is cancer," "women are entitled," and all the typical shit an incel would post. She absolutely enables their behavior. I was completely dumfounded, because we always talk about how awful men are. She's the one who pinkpilled me at a young age, about the awful things men do that are just now gaining traction again, like "gender critical." We even had a discussion about it this week! She's a total pickme; all of her replies to the guys on her profile are flirtatious, and the guys honestly think they have a chance. These guys keep at it even though she says she's married, and a lot of them are married as well! Honestly, what the fuck. Ew.
update since shaving my head
i called my sister to come over and help me with this and she told me roughly similar things as you gals >>446627>>446623>>446622
shes having me stay with her this weekend and that shes going to be talking to him but im convinced shes going to end it for me but how do i even fix what i did i look like an ugly boy now
I'm glad to hear that your sister is there to support you.
Buzzcuts on girls are fucking hot. Try not to look at your new haircut as an Eleven, but as a Furiosa
thanks for the responses, anons my sister is really one of my idols for how quickly she responded to this fucking mess
i think i needed to reach a point where enough is enough and this was it for me. i just need a way to end it once and for all and get him out of my apartment & figure out what im going to do about work coming soon
I'm proud that you still took the steps to accept
your sisters help and GTFO that piece of shit relationship. You will be better, and we're rooting for you.>>446825
You can do a more emotionally available thing and talk to her about your feelings, and say that if she doesn't see the possibility of giving you a chance, you'd like to take some time away to get over your feelings so you can continue your friendship without it ruining your mental health. Let her become a part of the decisionmaking imo. If you're close friends then dumping her without an explanation is a huge blow. Let her know what is going on with you.
blogpost incoming, sorry for the length
I finally figured out why I have these deep issues of hating everything related to performative femininity, wearing makeup, dresses, girly stuff and activities. It's because of my mom. Maybe this should go into the confession thread instead but I feel a bit of contempt towards women and girls that are over the top feminine, waifu types, housewives, and trad types. I know this isn't healthy and I know what I'm feeling is wrong but I can't dissociate that sort of appearance and interests from my mom and certain friends that have made me deeply repulsed of being a woman.
The reason being that my mom is that sort of trad type that is an ardent anti-feminist and thinks that the world would be a better place if we went back to good old days when women were in the kitchen and were at home with the kids and men were men. I cringe even typing this. I've also met other girls with similar thoughts and opinions and it doesn't matter how much I try, I just can't stop associating femininity with vapid housewife attitude. My mom's interests are gossip, soap operas, fashion, makeup, romcoms. I cannot but judge people with the same interests as stupid and empty shells with no ability to form their own opinion. I utterly hate my mother's urge to always appease men and gain a man's approval. For example, when I complained about getting catcalled my mom told me I should be happy because when I grow older, I will regret not getting catcalled. And when once there was a topic on TV about women that are into dominating men, my mom said that all women desire being dominated because it's in our nature which resulted in me having a disturbing relationship with other men. She completely mocked the metoo movement and even think Epstein did nothing wrong.
I'm aware that it's not a nice thing to say about my mother. Sometimes we get along just fine, but sometimes, I just want to cut all the ties and never speak to her again.
In contrast, my father's pretty chill and has no such opinion of women. I have no idea how these two got together.
Nah, that's pretty legit anon. Not the projection onto all feminine women, but disliking your mom for her shitty views. I think I'd flip if my mother held those beliefs.
If it helps at all, gender conforming women who hate men or who are at least progressive exist. I like dresses and skin care but fucking despise men at worst and want a reverse-trad FLR at best.
Ironically I went through a similar issue when I was presenting GNC myself because I thought I had to be submissive and uwu weak if I was feminine, what a joke. I used to get angry at myself for even making gestures that may be read as feminine and was always on the verge of flipping shit if I was interacting with a woman who had a high-pitched voice. Don't know if it's the same for you?
I hope you can overcome it since it is quite frustrating.
(By the way I'm not implying femininity will be your ~true form~ if you overcome this issue, that was just my personal case. Butch and stag women are based.)
If you've never done it before, just start out by looking at the nutritional information on the back of packets and become aware of how many calories, sugar and fat is in what you're eating. You may find that you start avoiding higher calorie foods from doing this.
About five years ago I started eating a strict keto diet because I kept getting brain fog and it was interfering with my ability to do my job as a bookkeeper. I used to write down everything I ate and then sit down at the end of the day with a calculator to work out my exact macros. It's easy enough to do once you know a few tricks. Supermarket websites will have all the nutritional information you need. The nutritional information will usually be given for 100g of product. For example if you ate 35g of chocolate, the easiest and quickest way to work out how many calories you consumed is by taking the number calories per 100g and then multiplying it by 0.35. So if 100g of chocolate contains 534 calories that multiplied by 0.35 is 186.9 and now you have the exact amount of calories you ate. If you ate 70g, you would multiply the value per 100g by 0.70. If you eat more than 100g, say 125g, the number you would need to multiply by would be 1.25. I hope that's understandable.
Thanks anon. I'm aware that my projection is stupid and it's embarrassing to admit it. Also, hearing that you sort of went through the same and overcame it gives me hope.
> verge of flipping shit if I was interacting with a woman who had a high-pitched voice.
yeah, same. Gestures, interests, crying too.
I still can't cry in front of others or even when I'm alone. Coincidentally, I developed anger issues that I'm working through right now.
I really appreciate what you wrote. It feels good knowing that I'm not alone. I don't think I could admit this anywhere else. And I feel like a piece of shit for writing shit about my mom but today was the last straw with the epstein bit.
I'd like to say that I sympathize with your situation, consider this though:>I've also met other girls with similar thoughts and opinions and it doesn't matter how much I try, I just can't stop associating femininity with vapid housewife attitude.
This could probably be corrected by just meeting more women, specifically what you might call professionals. What you do for a living or just who you're around all day can shape this.
I also feel like the radfem take on aspects of performative feminity being instruments of the patriarchy (like heels are meant to cripple us) to be kind of bullshit. Imo it's just too much of a stretch, though I do agree with most other radfem theories.
For me, I enjoy the ritualized aspect of "making myself up", it can be therapeutic in a way. Similarly how having a skin care routine helps me wind down and relax. I see it like taking extra time to pay attention to just yourself.
Anyways, best of luck to you anon. You sound like you already have a good head on your shoulders in regards to this issue, like recognizing it as a problem, so you'll be okay.

True. Unfortunately, all my previous work experience has been in an office environment where women were like carbon copies of my mom. I've had great friendships with other women but they were all GNC, or at the very least, they didn't wear makeup and didn't gossip.
I'm going to move places soon but regardless, I want to change how I feel about this. I never bothered to analyze my thoughts or talk about my feelings before because I thought it was stupid.

Watching the bpdfag sperg out in the ana thread makes me wonder if the person who caused me to stop streaming had BPD. She talked a lot in chat and hung out every day. Generally she was really nice. The channel got a little bigger, and I made some people mods, and she asked to be one, and I said sure, but once the chat gets more active and the mods can't keep up with filtering bad comments. There weren't a lot of bad comments to filter, so I thought it'd be a while.
The next day, there was around ten accounts that popped in and called me names and spammed curse words. I thought it was a freak occurrence, and everyone was doing okay with moderating, but it kept happening every day in increasing numbers. After a couple weeks of the random spamming, I was kind of anxious about it, and then one of the accounts, after insults, said something like "boy it looks like you need an actual moderator" and the girl who I promised mod to agreed in chat.
It hit me that she was making all the accounts, creating a toxic enough environment that would get her mod. I banned her quietly and told my other mods my suspicions, and waited to see what happened next.
Several "friends" of the girl, all on new accounts joined and demanded to know why she was banned, what she did wrong, why it was wrong. That I was mistaken, that it couldn't be proven. I told her friends I was disappointed in her, and that I may unban her in the future, but not right now.
Then the account attacks increased. More people joining, but this time starting or joining a conversation innocently, then landing insults that were really specific. It went on for weeks. I didn't really know what to do, so I took a break for two weeks without telling anyone. It wasn't until the break that I realized how much stress that dealing with that girl had caused me. I stopped streaming altogether.
I always wondered why it happened. It was really weird and tiring and toxic. I wasn't even a large stream to obsess over… but yeah I was just reminded of the behaviour that she exhibited. I realize it must've been mental. If not BPD then something else.
some people are just manipulative spergs anon tbh. i hope some day u can stream again without that issue if u liked it doing it ://
(i had a good chuckle from the bpdfag tbh. the ana chan board attracts too many of these fuckers its lowkey pathetic)

My local fruit vendor was selling avocados for a dollar each and I ended up buying two and have been making myself avocado toast for breakfast all weekend. I topped it with prosciutto the first day, but then yesterday and this morning I decided to top it off with cherry tomatoes and raw shallots.
I know avocado toast is a dumb meme but fuck, I love it so much and I'm so happy I get to eat a bunch of it without paying out the ass for it.

I wish I wasn't so garbage at games. My favorite game is Animal Crossing because it's so chill and I can still get a nice house and pretty town just by spending a few hours here and there working on it. I don't have to be a "super good gamer" to get all the best stuff.
I bought a Switch almost a year ago by now, but I haven't finished any of the games I bought. I first bought BoTW but I stopped shortly after picking it up because I'm so god fucking awful at fighting monsters and it stresses me out that weapons will break after some time, so it amps up my hoarding mentality to save all of my weapons. I picked it up again recently but I'm stressed about having to do the Vah Ruta dungeon because I fucking suck at fighting things. I literally spent hours just getting to the Zora domain in the first place because I didn't want to walk the main path. I kept trying to find other ways through the mountains before I eventually settled on making my way by following the path but still staying far off of it to avoid fighting. I see people do speedruns and shit but my brain is so bad at timing and pressing buttons correctly and quick enough. I know there's no point in being a "good gamer," but I'd like to just enjoy games without getting easily frustrated because I fucking suck and can't stop dying.
I just want New Horizons to come out so I can just enjoy being a basic bitch and use my switch more.
Thank you anon, I will!
I played on my friend's switch a long while back and I had so much fun doing dumb mindless shit like climbing up every single mountain that I could find, I just wanna do that again LOL
Absolutely do that! Just ignore the game quests for now and climb up mountains. Once you get more stamina (which you can get as well once you get more shrines) you can climb up pretty much everything. If you have any more questions, anons can probably answer in the games thread on /m/. But just fucking around climbing shit, finding shrines, and avoiding everyone for the time-being is a great way to get more gear/hearts/travel points.
Delete and repost to say that if you find a shrine that is too hard, it can still be used as a fast travel point, so you can come back to it later and continue exploring.
Thanks!! I'll definitely check that thread out!>>447367
Bad at timing, bad at aiming, stress overtakes me easily so I button mash constantly when fighting with bad results. I also constantly forget which buttons do what lol

I have been emulating a few psx games because i am stressed and kind of regressing, i had a few issues with stuttering playing Legend of mana and went on google to see if there was a fix and turns out most threads talking about it were from 2002 , 2006. Like wtf, it triggered the worst dreadful feeling on me to realize how much time has passed since i was a teenager, somehow reading the date on the posts talking about it made it more real for me, i feel like a fucking looser that wasted her life on the internet and is only good for distracting myself from how shitty i am at the real world.

Not gonna lie, whenever i remember this retarded fujo i used to be friends with up until last year i have many keks but also my day gets a little worse. Dunno what made me think that bitch was worth keeping around desu. She used to constantly beg for me to change my male OC's sexualities in chat and voice chat. She used to put this really raspy sad begging voice too.
Man, so glad i dumped all those shitty friends. They wanted me to listen when they had to vent, babble and explore their creativity, but didn't want to be there for when i wanted to. Fuckers came back crying when i left them without saying a word. Never stick with bitches who will lie to your face, but run towards you crying when you put up a defense. I'm living my best life without people that just wanna use me. Trust your gut. People who treat you like shit and only superficially support you are NOT your friends.

made me feel a little bit like a creep, not gonna lie
It is! People will leave treats for the whole office in the kitchen, and sometimes my supervisor will come back from one of his smoke breaks with a cookie! I have such a sweet tooth and I love all food, so I'm always super happy about it.
It's funny since I'm the receptionist and in the interview they said "yeah we just don't want someone who's going to be munching on food at the front desk" but the same people are occasionally giving me snacks haha! I try my best to keep it out of view and sneak bites in case a surprise guest comes in.
Oh shit I work in the area too lol.
There's a public database about all property sales in NYC and I shifted through that but then I realized I probably need to find information on the tenants rather than owners and I don't think that information is going to be easy to find… The NYPL listed a whole bunch of online databases but most of them don't have the info I'm looking for and it looks like there might be more info in the physical archives so maybe one of these days I'll stop into the library and take a look. It's really frustrating going around in circles but feels so satisfying.

I personally wouldn't bother talking to guys who have never had a ltr and or aren't looking for one now. Only guys who've had long term relationships will make a good friend to another woman and they tend to want a relationship themselves, too. Guys who sleep around or "let's see how it goes/maybe I'll x or y" are like cardboard cutouts of men. They have no personality and just say whatever is required to continue the communication with the end goal being sex 'n ghost
If you want male friends look for ones already in or previously in ltr

The fuck? I was just looking through old EA shit and enjoying the old drama, and I realized her antics reminded me of AB's. Calm down.
I still want to know if she really does know about this site. I'd like to think she'd deliberately leak shit about other public figures in the celebricows thread to shit-stir and bump her own thread with fake milk for self-promo if she did.
god i'm glad to read that. i get so nostalgic for EA's trashy myspace edits and the weird audio quality of enchant and all her melodrama with the asylum plague rat stuff too. it's a little sad thinking that all that was weirdly meaningful to me at some point. oof
what bothers me about her is that with her classical training, great education, lithe body and model face, she could've done her shtick but done it WELL, like, not having everything be totally hot topic-tier? without calling everything "crumpets", like, without all of the really bad british larping, especially because she's from fucking malibu and her well-to-do background and education should've kept her from turning into a woman with the sensibilities and tastes of a family dollar cashier? like, she could've just done a blend of genres and a blend of 'funky' and whatever, without it being so trashy and histrionic. it's too bad, because she has a nice vocal range and skill, but terrible taste.

I actually love when I see some handmaiden or pick-me talking shit about women on Twitter, and then I reverse search their profile pic (usually an attractive woman) and get multiple pages of results.
Either it's a man who's too stupid to catfish well (and we know this to be common), or a pick-me who's insecure as shit (and we also know this to be common).
I sometimes consider actually using Twitter just to call these people out, but it's not really worth it.
Keep talking tough and picking at other people's appearances. You already know your own level of ugliness is so bad that it wasn't even fit for a profile picture.

Shane Dawson just announced he has misophonia and it makes me worry that a bunch of his fans will read about it and be like “omggg, chewing is so annoying, i totally have misophonia too!!!” because they misunderstand that it’s a severe disorder. I don’t know if it’s dumb to care, but things like that infuriate me since having misophonia has meant that I haven’t had a meal with either of my parents for maybe 7-8yrs now and that certain noises have enraged me to the point of tears or wanting to hurt myself.
Holy shit I never considered that would be the case. Do you have any results that stand out? Like specific tweets where it turned out to be true?
I just came here to post something similar about how I noticed non-white gay men like to incite misogyny between women under the guise of "it's only okay because theyre white EXDEE!!!"
I'm pretty sure there was an article exposing some "conservative traditional wife" Twitter accounts for using fake pictures and generally catfishing back in 2016 or 2017, but I can't find it anymore, rip.
I don't screencap or save specific instances I've seen in the wild, but the last one I noticed was some tard basically saying 80% of the women from my country are sluts, gold-diggers, feminists, etc. The typical incel shit.
I really, really wouldn't be surprised if it turned out that all the main shit-stirrers on Twitter who hide behind being a "minority" or a "woman" to talk shit are catfishes.>>449754
Wasn't there one that straight-up used a stock image and unironically said shit like "Don't you be tellin' me, sista!", trying their hardest to "sound black"? It was fucking cringy.
I'm Googling like mad but can't find any of this shit. It's annoying.

Canadian rednecks have some semblance of their own identity.
Instead of hating mexicans, they hate natives.
They love stag and does, especially when hosted at legions.
I mean there's probably more but I (grew up in the country near a town of <5000) always thought there was a slight difference from American rednecks. I think of the Southern stereotypes first though, but we're probably pretty similar to the midwest.
It was a joke that it took 5+ years for trends to hit rural schools. Trucker hats were done in the states by the time they got popular here.

A couple of years ago I had something really weird happening to me.
It was late evening and I was doing something on the laptop, playing a game iirc. Then at some point it's like I lost awareness of my surroundings… then I snapped out of it, and when I did, I felt extremely confused and forgot everything I had been doing for the last hour. I kept on feeling weird, confused and scared until I went to sleep, and on the next day I had a migraine episode (I have migraine sometimes).
Someone suggested to me that it could've been a small stroke. What do you think…?
This is called a fugue, and it can be caused by a lot of different things, anon.
Depression and anxiety
If you feel otherwise OK, I wouldn't worry about it, but if it happens regularly I would consult your doctor.

Someone mentioned 7cups on another thread and I logged into a really old email address yesterday and found an email about me deleting my kik and it made me remember that time I used 7cups. I didn't use any paid professional services from it, just talked to the free users. Experience was meh, but this one fucking dude really stood out.
I was going through a crazy rough time in my life, studying abroad in a foreign country (no one else from my school went that year so I was completely on my own making friends), and super depressed from the combination of loneliness from lack of friends and a stupid fuckboy that I got caught up with (pls no bully I know it was stupid and it's been like 3 years- I've learned to love myself now). I can't remember if this was before or after I started going to my school's counselor, but fuck man. I wish I had the brains to screencap all of it but I didn't. By the time my friends woke up (I was halfway across the world so 13 hour time difference) and I talked to them about it, this was the only screenshot I grabbed. I was gonna send more from the beginning but didn't realize that older messages would just be deleted or whatever. Looking back on it now I'm laughing because holy shit it's so cringey, but man was I crazy uncomfortable. He made me download kik and I sent like 3 messages tops, then reported him on 7cups, and deleted my kik (hence the email).
I'm also pretty sure I was hesitant to report him in the first place because he had crazy good reviews from a fuck ton of other people. Everyone was saying how he was so understanding and helpful to them… like uhh, did we deal with the same person? Anyway, I'll probably never go back to that site.

If I lived near a Disneyland location and had an annual pass I'd probably go and just hang out too tbh. I don't really like Disney properties but the parks are usually pretty neat looking. If you already have the pass then it's just another place to go and hang out with friends, you don't need to get merch or wait in line.
Would I buy an annual pass in the first place? I mean probably not…
I've seen a whole bunch of UK based disney obsessed nuts where it's less about visiting disney (though they do that too) but more about collecting every disney toy or item that the disney store releases or disney gives a license to
It's one expensive form of hoarding and they constantly post about waiting til payday to afford the next batch of toys that they'll photograph once and then put on an overcrowded shelf
Similar to some funko pop collectors on youtube, it's fun to collect something but aren't we being told to cut down on unnecessary plastic while some people are collecting literal thousands of these things?
I follow a few collectors on youtube and insta that obviously live for the buzz of shopping, the second they pay for one item they're already thinking of the next five

I remember growing up when Disney was seen as a once in a lifetime trip that some kids got to go on, it wasn't seen as an adult thing or a multiple trip kinda thing back then
Now as a childless 30s woman I see others in my position having a bit of an 'inner child' that they spoil, I wonder what causes it
I known these women who are 30+ and still go on and on about Harry Potter and still buy the merch and save for the trips to the theme Park. The nostalgiafagging industry has become huge. Imagine you can sell the same cartoons and the same capeshit you sold to kids but to woman/manchilds too. Its an endless stream of revenue, every few years you can simply remake or remaster the same shit and sell it at full price with the same people buying it, i feel millenials are the generation that normalized this and sperging about their 80s and 90s feels is what we are going to be known about. Not even octogenarians reflecting on their death beds keep repeating "when i was a kid i remember i…" so god damn much as a fucking millenial.
Btw, aren't you excited by the FFVIII remake coming soon? :3

hardly even a pink pill opinion tbh. dumb to literally put your body through the hell that is pregnancy and childbirth to carry your bfs or husband or whatever's child, when there's a good chance they'll fuck you over, too, and being a single mother puts you at risk of falling into poverty, plus, the risk of dvt and embolisms in general, which happens to be the biggest cause of maternal death after birth, postpartum hemorrhage, postpartum endometritis, vaginal or uterine prolapse, fecal and urinary incontinence, hernias, abdominal separation, perineal ruptures, and this is all just after birth assuming you had an otherwise uneventful pregnancy, and doesn't include the obvious cosmetic changes. it takes a huge toll on the body. why would anyone want to do this, let alone for men?
Samefag, but I’m sick of people saying that completely natural biological desires are in any way comparable to severe disorders like narcissism. Like, are the people who genuinely think this thick or something? Do you view any other species that reproduces to be narcissistic also?
We have reproductive organs to reproduce, the want to have biological children isn’t in any way indicative of a personality disorder and the people who try to claim this have pessimistic double digit IQ’s
are you like, actually retarded? like a few people doing something historically subversive would ever catch on enough to prevent ALL pregnancy? lmao. 15,000+ births an hour and showing no signs of stopping. talking about it on a Malaysian bread baking board isn't gonna touch that shit, even if more women became more conscious of it globally. even if many women saw it as unappealing, there still would be so many births thanks to religion and anti abortion sentiment, their parents/family, rape, no access to abortion or birth control, etc. but there would ALWAYS be a sizeable portion of women who would have kids for some reason or another, plenty against their will. either way, it really still is physically harmful to women and unethical for countless reasons, chiefly that a child can't consent to being born, let alone born into an uncaring world that's like, literally on fire and losing its lungs right now. >>452715>Do you view any other species that reproduces to be narcissistic also?
this is an impossibly stupid question. as intelligent as animals are, they're not capable of human levels of introspection. you're right, actually. it isn't just narcissism, it's also stupidity. people will reproduce unnecessarily and at their detriment, to the point of existential threat. not only is it not altruistic as people claim, but literally physically harmful and pointless considering the state of the earth. congrats. if you need to justify your behavior by drawing parallels to animals incapable of long term thinking or self awareness, that's really sad.
I live in a country where the benefits for single mothers are pretty generous compared to others. For years young women would get pregnant as soon as they left school, even if the had a bf they'd keep him a secret to secure benefits. They'd have a minimum 2 kids to secure the nicest free housing .. and lately that bubble has burst.
The housing benefits are being cut for everyone and there's a shortage of properties. Now all the newspapers are full of sob stories where women are living in emergency accommodation (hotel rooms) with multiple kids, long term, and that's the kids shitty life. It's also why homeless people without kids will never get help because those moms get priority over them and the government is paying 12 month long hotel bills cos these moms won't work or even try

I saw "Disconnect" a few months ago and I really liked it. There was this scene where a camboy is talking to a woman about his job and she says something like "why would you sell yourself??".
So he starts asking her how much would she accept for fucking a homeless/hobo guy. She settled on 5 million (?) and he smiled saying "everybody has a price" (pic related).
Would you accept the money? Any amount is valid. Do you think you have a price?
PS: There was a girl I asked this question who said "are you implying homeless guys are gross????". I keked too hard when she asked that, I guess she wanted to be ~uwu smart and understanding~.

i dislike when people say "___ is a grown ass adult!!" as if that means they're necessarily capable of thinking clearly. most adults are not especially intelligent, knowledgeable, or mature. and unrelated but lots of people have experienced abuse that prevents them from maturing, and plenty of people in general are just impulsive and immature. most 50 year olds i know are not self aware.
Even emotionally stunted/abused people know basic right from wrong. You would literally have to have the mind of a 6 year old child to not be able to grasp that.
If this is about Lainey, as I suspect it is because this same exact shit is coming up in the onion thread regarding pedogate, she absolutely knew that engaging a minor in romantic/sexual talk was wrong.

A lot of them thought that their bodies weren't sexualized because they lacked any curve aka what they consider as fat. Maybe they thought they were truly just in a competition with other women to be thinnest.
What they didn't account for is male pedophiles and how they are extremely attracted to frail bodies that have been stunted to look little. And they know just how to manipulate and neg women who are terrified of gaining weight too.
I only get annoyed when people use "grown ass" in context of talking about someone relatively young, say early 20s.
I don't really consider people true adults until they're established and in their 30s. It's really stupid to be so harsh on people who for the most part are finally finishing their educations, are figuring out their living situations, and working on relationships. There's ten times as many expectations and responsibilities that young people are expected to have today as opposed to young people 100 years ago and that's a fact.
Sorry for the incoming blogpost but I can kind of relate to that.
I haven't had a friend since I was around 15 and I'm 24 now. I don't know if I would say I don't 'need' friends but I hardly ever think about it anymore and have no desire to try to make any. It's just more comfortable to be alone because it's how I've always been as an adult. I don't have a great life or anything and am pretty sad but most of my negative feelings stem from career failures and being ugly/inferior, not from not having friends. Although it's probably all related. The main negative thing is that I feel like I'm emotionally stunted from not having normal friendships/relationships, so if I ever tried again it would be hard to form bonds.
Even if someone doesn't need friends or prefers being alone I think they would still benefit from having friends. It just seems like part of being a well adjusted human being. Basically what I'm saying is that eventually you get so used to not having any that it feels like you don't need any because you've made it this far without any.

Wholesome anon, I agree. Although I've always been sort of radfem without actually knowing what it was, I repressed those feelings because I got shunned when I shared my views when younger. To see an entire website with threads dedicated to women who've observed the same or similar experiences to me is such a relief, and has added so much more confidence in myself to move away from the dogma I grew up in, relying on a man.

I hear some disgusting cutesy anime sound in my head when someone writes that.
Me and some friends were talking about how we feel about boyfriends watching porn, and one who's gay started going on about how it's natural and said she hasn't met a single guy who doesn't enjoy it. She also said girls who are against it are way too up-tight and just wrong.
I got annoyed at that, so I was like "Aren't you a lesbian? Stay in your lane" half-jokingly. Everyone went silent, then she said "Isn't that sad? The lesbian knows more about men than you", and I just responded "Evidently not" and someone just changed the subject before it got too heated. Things were kind of tense after that.
One of our mutual friends later texted me saying that she thought the "stay in your lane" thing was fucked up and I should apologize for the sake of peace, but I didn't reply. I don't see anything wrong with what I said.
She doesn't date men. Who the fuck is she to tell us what we should put up with when it comes to them? I do kind of wish I hadn't said that, but just gone full pink pill, told her porn actively harms women, anyone who supports it is disgusting, and to fuck off with her libfem bullshit. But I don't think anyone in the group would've supported me on that, they don't know much about this kind of thing and a lot of them are also libfems.
I'm still somewhat pissed. Who was in the wrong here??
I think that porn from decades ago could be referred to as natural when boys didn't know what a woman even looked like naked and photos in a magazine answered their curiosity, the porn that we have today is far from natural
'stay in your lane' was a poor choice of wording though, I can see how it came off as harsh
You're both in the wrong here, however…
>She doesn't date men. Who the fuck is she to tell us what we should put up with when it comes to them?
I can't "this" enough. She was being a huge bitch, much moreso than you. Lesbians very rarely have to deal with pornsickness in their partner and my guess is she's never even seen enough porn to know how horrifically abusive
and cruel to women it is. I think you should apologize for saying it so harshly, but also point blank tell her she also needs to apologize for dismissing your feelings on a subject she actually DOESN'T know anything about like she thinks. Explain that while "stay in your lane" was a mean way to put it, she doesn't know what it's like to date a man who regularly looks at porn. Explain to her how it negatively impacts your sex life tremendously: men having issues with getting hard or cumming, men expecting/pressuring for things you don't want to do, needing to hurt women to be aroused, thinking women should look like blow up dolls, etc. Not to mention how it's an industry fueled by desperate women selling their bodies in the most degrading ways. Tell her to do some actual research into how former porn stars feel about the industry.
think this anon worded it nicely, yeah, you were in the right, but you ruined your own argument/chance to turn others by the "stay in your lane" comment as now you've come off as slightly unhinged/homophobic.>>454634
or she could be one of those normie/libfem lesbians who are alright with mainstream porn. tbf the friend does come off as a bitch but like so does OP.
>>454637>Your friend probably only thinks you calling her out was haram because you mentioned her being a lesbian which is stupid because context matters.
Exactly. I'm sorry, but the fact this was coming from a lesbian just makes it so much more idiotic than it if were coming feom a straight girl because wtf does she know the subject?
Also, she comes off as one of those NLOG lesbians who thinks all men see her as "one of the guys" and are gonna be super open with her about "locker room talk" type shit like they do with their closest male friends.
My best friend sleep talks a lot. Once when we were roommates in college, she said the freakiest shit. It was late at night and she had already gone to bed, the only light on was my desk lamp and I was working on an assignment when she suddenly laughed. I thought she was awake so I said "what?" since she sounds so clear when she sleep talks that she sounds awake, but she didn't answer. Then suddenly she said "why's there a child in here?" Absolutely freaked me the fuck out.
I asked her about it the next morning and she said she had a dream where she was in a classroom teaching some kids, but had to change in the classroom for some reason? They moved the kids out so she was supposed to be alone, but one kid got in and that's why she asked lol. Usually it's harmless nonsensical thing, but this one time really freaked me out.
You're absolutely in the right.
What would we say to gay men being opinionated about women? That they should shut it because it's none of their business.
So why should a lesbian be allowed to give you unsolicited "advice" when it comes to relationships with men - something she has zero knowledge about? She was basically backstabbing you by trying to teach you how to be a good little straight woman.
Your friends are likely only trying to fish for woke points by being on the side of the lgbtblahblah "victim
", no normal woman would be okay with her partner jerking it to others. Saying "all" of them do that also shows how lowly she thinks of men, including you and your friends boyfriends.
I dont want to 'not all lesbians' but your friend just sounds like a cunt tbh. I'm a lesbian and would be 100 percent against dudes watching porn. I talk to my straight female friends all the time and listen to their guy problems. i wouldnt put them down.
i dont think anyone was right in this situation, tbh. dudes watching porn is disrespectful and gross no matter what
As someone who did competitive dance as a youngin, the choreography IS lacking. Shake hips, do a hair flip, add some arms. Walk from one formation to the next.
The dances are made so that they look flashy, but they don't expend too much energy as to be out of breath for singing (not like that matters). The dances are more like cheer routines than actual dances.
this is why i read all the stuff from there even tho im not into kpop anymore.kpop sites also have filler shit like "5 idols who are real anime bois uwu" or "pictures that prove that x idols rocks negative rainbow hair" or some shit
at least the critical thread has the important shit plus the occasional nitpicking
as a lesbian i thought your joke was absolutely fine, she's an uptight cunt
but to be honest that's kind of part of this generation nowadays, you could have expected it to not land well
sucks, but not surprising

Hate to break it to you but if you get that insecure about not being told thank you or feeling like you're being taken advantage of even if there's no evidence to suggest that you are, then you don't have good self esteem.
Obviously I don't have the whole story (and I'm not a doctor anyways) but you can have symptoms of BPD without actually having it (just for example, having a bad self esteem along with anger issues and mood swings doesn't automatically mean you have BPD) and splitting can sometimes be a stand-alone "ego preservation" mechanism and it most likely is if you don't have any other of the life-damaging symptoms of BPD, either way talk to a professional.

Tumblr guys have been popular forever tween/young girls tend to like soft ish guys until they grow out of it
It's kind of interesting how in every era, there's a different kind of "pretty boy" that girls like. I don't even think it's just a tween thing, remember the #Moms4Twilight thing or whatever it was called from back in 2014 or something?
Whenever this happens, (ugly, insecure) men get really buttblasted about some women preferring beauty to ogre aesthetics.
But it's okay for them to hold us to ridiculous, porn star and/or quasi-pedophilic standards, I guess.

I am super constipated and have a hyper active fetus spinning around in my uterus, being this full of shit makes it incredibly painful please god let me have mercy
I feel this so hard. The thing that's helped me is looking back at pictures of myself with various hair lengths over the years (even minutely different) and see which one makes me feel more like "me." I always go back and forth between growing mine out and keeping it shoulder-length (and whether or not I want to have bangs), but then I went back and saw myself with shoulder-length hair and I was like "yep, that me."
I think that you're focusing more on the inconvenience of having to grow it out in the future and not focusing on whether or not you genuinely like your hair at that length. Yeah, it may suck and take a while if you hypothetically want to grow it out again in the future, but does that outweigh the comfort of having the hair length you love?

Personally, I treat them like queens.
i really suck at organizing digital media files. irl my apartment is tidy and clean, but on my phone + laptop everything is so, so messy. i got a new phone half a year ago and thought that it was time to start doing better, but i didn't, and now i have more than 6000 pictures of dumbass shit on my phone. i bet that if i deleted everything i don't want to keep, i'd have maybe 1000 photos left. it's been like this for years and i have a few old, broken phones and laptops that are filled with shit as well, i'll have to either completely destroy them or have them fixed so that i can organize everything and save what i want to save. the thought of dying and having someone find my old phones and get access to everything really freaks me out. i also keep thinking, what if someone hacks me? i'm not even embarressed that they might find nudes, just that they'll see how unorganized i am, how i save so much dumb shit, photograph weird things, and write cringy notes at 2 am. i know it's stupid because all i have to do is just start deleting and organizing before it gets too bad. so idk why i don't

tbf the Internet wasn't always like this anon,I have been using the Internet since the early 2000's to current year and it has changed drastically
Its not that the Internet didn't have weird and disgusting stuff in the past (it did),but to get to that content you had to have already known about it and had to go on specif edgy sites and forums if you wanted to see offensive stuff but now you see bizarre and weird stuff on mainstream internet sites on a near daily basis
something happened in the early 2010's that sorta ruined everything

There's a weird amount of posts about height here lately but I mean anyone super skinny, fat, short, big nosed, whatever gets jokes or comments
The amount of incels, heightcels and r/smalldickproblems posters obsessing over one physical trait and complaining about the world hating them..yeah we're all judgy fucks but most of us have one thing we hate about our body too
Reading r/smalldickproblems today I saw a post mentioning that women who've survived cervical cancer can sometimes prefer small penises for medical/pain reasons.. the literal 2 inch dick posters whinged by saying they don't want 'damaged' women..
The same video with a tall man bullying the hell out of a short girl doesn't exist though - and never will. There wouldn't even exist enough short girls "slurs" and jokes for that.
It just really annoys me, that while taller men are probably cruel to short guys and short/average women reject them despite not necessarily being taller than short guys, the same short guys decide to take their anger out on tall women instead. As if we didn't get enough shit from others already.
nothing strange about it, tall men can shit on anyone more easily, so short men just shit on who they can shit on easily, women, and women can shit on eachother easily so that's what we do.
it's terrible but it makes sense. i personally go out of my way to call people out regardless because i couldn't care less about male power, it really pisses them off when they think they're at the top of the food chain.

That's brutal anon. I'm probably extremely wealthy by those standards. I should be more thankful I live in such a beautiful area, even if I do miss the simpler days of childhood. I plan on moving soon anyway, I can't afford to stay much longer. My childhood friends left years ago. No one can really afford to stay except those on social programs and the people who are funding the construction. The middle class is being driven out. I live two streets away from a house that cost 2 million USD to build. I live in a small cottage type home my parents paid $100k for. To put it roughly, minimum wage is $29k a year here because you rarely get employed full time.
Honestly, there aren't really any jobs here either aside from grocery stores and a bowling alley a few miles away. Most people I know work about a 45 minute to 2 hour drive away in another city.

Yeah. It feels smaller, because it IS getting smaller, as more and more sites get bought up by the same Google/Amazon/Whatever giants and more and more people use the web while less make their own content. I remember people making their own websites for themselves with Piczo, now people don’t even bother with custom Tumblrs with those fancy themes because everyone has Twitter or Instagram with 0 customization. Like the other anon said it’s sterile and the same shit all the time.
I was born in 97 so I hardly remember life without the internet or a computer but since the mid 2000’s the internet and its culture has changed so much and absorbed other parts of my life I don’t want it to be in (I liked it for fandom things and gaming but now it’s for news, politics, celebrities, jobs, can’t even befriend someone in real life without eventually being given their social media or referencing obnoxious memes when I used to feel like such a cool kid for knowing all muh trollfaces). I think: "there has to be more to life than this" and that thought gives me hope that I can exist without needing to be online all the time. Maybe the poor fucks who were born after 2005 will find some kind of instinct that will make them look beyond the internet that seemingly gives them everything.
It feels really pathetic whenever I reflect on my interactions with friends and discover most of what we say is shit about memes, "oof
", "big F" and trying to verbalise reaction images because we forgot how to talk like… whatever came before this. I don’t even feel human. Am I a fucking NPC?

Hey , i remember that thread from your pic. Another wizard of culture , i see.
Should I just play Deus Ex?
But yeah, I feel like I've already seen everything I wanted to see on the internet, but it has killed my hobbies so I have nothing to fill my time with.
I've been thinking about unpluging, or cutting down internet usage
Should I just play Deus Ex?
I tried and the game was pretty boring, the cool stuff is just nuggets. Listening Behold a Pale Horse on audiobook was way more fun .
I remember complaining about all of this in another thread. I agree with you, with how society works now you're almost forced to use the internet for basic social interactions even with people you know irl and necessary things like job hunting, paying taxes, the news, etc. I remember as a teen I spent a lot of time making friends with people my age on forums and blogs and I wasn't allowed to have a mobile phone (no smartphones yet at the time) and to go outside so I had a hard time making friends, but now that it's the reverse I feel like I have a hard time meeting new people outside the internet because interactions irl became so different. If you don't have a smartphone with all social media possible good luck keeping up with what your friends and family do because they post everything online and expect you to read and watch everything before having a normal conversation with them irl. Obviously that's an exaggeration since it depends on each person a lot but you get the idea overall. Now if you don't know about minor e-celebrities on tiktok doing some dumb shit again some people are going to act like you forgot who Mariah Carey is.
>now people don’t even bother with custom Tumblrs with those fancy themes because everyone has Twitter or Instagram with 0 customization.
I remember you could customize your twitter profile a little until early 2014 or 2015, you could add a banner and a background. People didn't like it at all but they don't care anymore.
I think a lot of this has to do with how everyone uses smartphones for everything now and all the time, and even before that it started with fb being accessible to everyone and not just college students and graduates. Everything is less niche now, and I don't remember myspace being as mainstream as tumblr is for example the actual equivalent for frogs like me would be more like comparing tumblr and skyblog, they're both blogging platforms but tumblr is just used to reblog other people's shit by most users, unlike lj, myspace, skyblog, etc.
It ruined art for me, it became a shitty popularity contest, i've even come across employers that expect their artists to have a strong online presence. Is like you don't exist if you don't gather enough followers.
It started as a novelty and kind of a nuisance to becoming more and more something you need to understand and engage constantly as a base level pre requisite to have a normal life.
Yeah, it seems like everyone is trying to churn out fanart of the newest popular thing as fast as possible, or is stuck with drawing with the same subject over and over.
Why do they want you to have lots of followers? To ride off your popularity or?

I was having a good day, until I washed my hair and inspected my scalp thouroughly because I saw a grey hair.
Well, turns out I have many now, too many to rip them out like I used to do until now. I'm only 24, goddammit. And I'm a brunette. And my parents didn't go grey so early. Why the fuck is it happening? I really didn't need this shit too, on top of all the things I have to take care of. I already have problematic skin and meh hair, plus other stuff, and I'm broke.
For the moment they can only be seen if I do a scalp check because they're within the deepest layer of hair, but you can still see some if you look with attention under daylight.
I want to fucking die. I just have bad luck in everything.

It's an added cost and bother that I didn't need, plus the self esteem blow. No one I know dyes their hair to cover greys before the age of 30-35 minimum.>>457367>>457375
Thanks anons, but I still hope that somehow it's just stress related and will slowly disappear to only return at a more proper age. I wouldn't be able to embrace it.
I think the worst part is how all of this has affected my attention span. I remember reading 100s of books a year as a kid and I was really big into watching films. I'd go to the library/rental place and just pick whatever off the shelf. I even remember playing video games for hours trying to complete one specific level. Once the internet came along, I was making loads of online friends.
Fast forward to college and I really struggled to even read one paragraph for class. I don't have the patience to watch a 2 hour film or read a book without reading reviews to see if I'll enjoy it first. I don't have the energy to get to know people anymore and tbh whenever I do get to know someone beyond a surface level (or referencing memes, as you said lol), I end up falling out with them. Maybe it's all a symptom of getting older but I'm kind of jealous of the generation older than me because they still enjoy going to the cinema or reading or painting while me and my friends just watch old vines and get drunk when we meet up.
Man anon, I loved reading this haha. This is pretty much exactly what I was thinking about the other day. I love browsing forums and such but I feel like they've gotten so niche as social media has taken over everything and that's where the majority of discussions take place. I just really dislike it's expected and encouraged nowadays that you have to put your whole life online, like your job, friends, convos, photos, keeping everyone updated etc. It's so unhealthy in the long run. The kids growing up today are fucked because their dependence of the internet is only gonna get worse. Like before we could get on by easily without many things that have been introduced in the modern age, why do we feel like we suddenly can't live without them? I feel like we're getting tricked into thinking we need this shit in our lives when it's only poison
Also, this is gonna sound so snobby af, but I hate the way people use the internet as an excuse to just talk so stupidly. Like they use certain words and ways of talking and phrases etc that drive me up the wall and make them look so moronic. Even worse is that people say this shit in real life, it's so embarrassing. I don't get why they can't at least type in a more sophisticated manner

God Clarie is so cute. Good taste anon. I have such a "thing" for salt and pepper ladies I think it started with watching too much what not to wear growing up.
I really like the contrast with dark hair but I had a dance teacher who had SUPER long hair that transitioned from grey to blonde and it looked so cool too.
I really feel you anons. I have become way internet addicted and as soon as I cut down on my use I notice how lonely it gets, because everyone I know irl wants to send messages and chat these days not do normal fucking phone calls to catch up. Still want to jump on this thing: https://www.rsph.org.uk/our-work/campaigns/scroll-free-september.html
Anyone else wanna join?

I finally found that other graphic which was more relevant which I would have attached in that original post. This shit is real. It’s a little outdated since the most recent year is 2014 and I’m curious as to what the internet looks like now. Probably even worse.>>457283
I can absolutely relate to that. I spent so much time online as a teenager because I was socially awkward but now real life interactions have to involve the internet when I want to practice socialising like a normal human being. Hey, if the internet has done at least 1 good thing today it’s letting a frog and a bong talk without going to war.
I thank my RPG games and older-era internet for teaching me to stay inquisitive and search things out in person rather than turn to the ~magic box~ and ask it questions it will try to shill products on. Page 1 of Google search results is basically a glorified ad list. Hey Leeloo, you wanna know what war is? Well you’d better look it up in a textbook because the computer just wants to conscript me and tell me _ politician is terrible because he looked ugly while eating some food in a candid once! (Yeah, that was real.)>>457423
I definitely recall a study out there about heavy internet usage inducing ADD-like symptoms in people, something about their neuroplasticity? I know having Tumblr sandblasted my working memory (and everything else) to shit when, before, the internet was more of a digital encyclopaedia I’d spend evenings reading articles/stories from. And it’s sad to me that hardly anyone questions it. I’m acquaintances with older people who basically roll over and bow down to the magical search engine that can tell me everything, and how "wow, technology has come so far". Except it’s still a tool, one that can be misused or just plain break. Why keep in touch with whoever when you can see how they are on Facebook? Except I don’t want to do that (and I don’t have Fuckbook anyway), I want to physically meet them, talk to them, walk around the street for some fresh air with them. And this is coming from someone who is fighting agoraphobia.
And why take my phone in the bath with me (with all the risks) when I can take my physical diary and a pen with me? A book is just as good and I can decorate it with things, the physical act of writing forces my brain to focus on one thought at a time and not ADHD around, and since I am very privacy-minded a physical diary circumvents all the problems with my personal life being stored as data on a cloud (aka: someone else’s computer).>>457447
One of the differences I remember most is how it was drilled into us to never give our name, phone numbers or address online to strangers. Now it’s mandatory to give a phone number if you want to sign up anywhere. I don’t know anyone younger than me but those YouTube channels ‘led’ by tweens gives me a bad feeling. Did we not learn that fame isn’t everything? Some random person’s son or daughter should not be a public figure with several thousand people following them. I can’t worry about it too much but I question if anyone who’s internet era was 2012+ has the critical thinking to avoid click bait or understand the ways in which content is only being shoved in your face to keep you occupied and them monetised. Things are a lot more sophisticated now, it’s not like a page will be obvious back-alley bait trying to steal your credit card when it’s a legitimate company that controls everything you see until "hey I guess I’ll buy that minecraft T shirt for my son after all, he loves it!">>457595
I don’t really use SM (I stick to forums and chans) but I have a problem with the internet anyway so I’ll honour it in my own way. Definitely encourage people you know irl to try it out.

I posted a while back on one of the ot threads about how frustrated I was about sucking at games and how I could barely make it through botw. A kind anon told me to just avoid fighting monsters and complete shrines to get more hearts and stamina so I could stand a chance against them, so that's what I've been doing, and I've really started to have a lot more fun with the game.
I'm really terrible and I'm sure if I had someone watching me play they'd be ridiculously frustrated by the roundabout and stubborn ways I go about climbing up a tower or getting anywhere, but I'm having a lot of fun exploring the map and thinking up stupid but unconventional ways to make my way somewhere. Actually I'm just really glad to be using my switch more because it's my first game system that I bought brand new for a little under full price, so it felt like a real waste that it was just sitting in my room collecting dust.

college anons who like ramen; I'd seriously recommend giving the nissin raoh a try, that or the sapporo ichiban brand (the original is the best imo, they also have the "chow mein" dish which is more like a soy saucy fried noodle dish). buy one pack locally if you can find it, and if you like it, it's well worth that you can buy it in bulk for cheaper online.
was stingy on instant ramen for awhile but the more "authentic" stuff from the asian aisle of the grocery store brought me back bc it's way better than the nasty 25 cent shit. the broth in this miso pack is particularly good.
The fucking yakisoba is my savior. I love that shit. It tastes amazing and so simple. I like to add cabbage, corn, and a few lil Smokies to mine when I want to be a bit fancy with a tiny dab of Japanese mayo mixed in.
It's so simple and only 75¢ a packet, at least where I'm from. My struggle days have never been so tasty.

I didn't think anything of your image until I enlarged it and saw the fish, and now I'm cackling like an idiot.
I posted on my ig story last night of me being dumb in the game and my friend joked that I should start a twitch but all I could think of was elitist neckbeards absolutely raging at me being a filthy casual gamer grill doing things all the wrong way. I think it'd be funny just to see them mansplain to me how things are done while I run around like an idiot.

That would be a funny concept really! I think the gamers are best that are kinda chill with their attitude. Like they know they aren't that good but it's okay because they still can enjoy the game.
you mean like Gaston from the Disney movie?
idk why but thinking of him makes me giggle
I feel this. I've never gotten into social media and stuff like discord. I don't regret not getting into social media because I feel like it's mostly a waste of time but getting all my online interaction from anonymous imageboards has made me really dislike talking in group chats with a name attached.
This makes me feel really left out because that's the way most of my friends like to keep contact and I just can't muster up the energy for it. I love meeting irl but with how little people seem to want this I feel like I'm drifting away from all my contacts.
Its happening to me with Chrono Trigger
, i loved the game so much, i am just at the end of it before the final battle but i keep procrastinating beating it because i know after the ending credits roll i will feel sad it ended.>>457932
I don't like undertale and Jojo, no matter how many memes flood my feeds i'll never change my mind. I actually tried to sit down and watch a few episodes of Jojo, it was so terrible and not in a funny way.
We’re not missing a lot, I can promise that. It’s only a few moments of being shocked and outraged at whatever e-drama is happening when I’m getting older every day and I want to grow and learn stuff with my time on this earth. Which, by the way, our peasant ancestors coped just fine on without being connected to a device telling them to be obsessed with some random fuck the next realm over who’s cancelling his cobbler for making him the wrong shoes. Social media is an actual chore to use. Those guides on how to grow and maintain a follower base that tell you to post in certain times of the day seem ridiculous to me, it’s practically a job for 0 satisfaction. Instead of working on their ‘brand’, people should work on their personalities and things wouldn’t feel so vapid and manufactured.
Sometimes I wonder about how being off social media would affect dating because I’m burned from online dating and want to meet someone who doesn’t know what a bloody meme is but the chances of that is 0. I’m a little nerdy & into computers but I’d rather date someone who doesn’t share that hobby because whew lad, the amount of pathetic guys who misplace all their self worth into their e-peen and streaming/gaming career at the cost of their hygiene and social skills! One of my friends talks about how he got pretty big in DOTA tournaments and my eyes just glaze over because it’s not something to admire, in what way is straining yourself at a desk clicking on things in a room with other sweaty men supposed to be impressive? The only thing impressive about that was the pay check which he saw less than 10% of as the sharks took their cut.
Anyway, I dislike Discord in particular because of its nature as closed off little rooms. I remember fooling around on Chatango and IRC but all the Discord groups feel so bland and cliquey for some reason, and there’s always one asshole mod. I don’t chat with that kind of slang either and it’s discomforting having to change the way I speak to attempt to connect with someone who only has "mood" to say to me. Yes
I can’t even remember any sites I went on before 2012, Quizilla and Piczo? Neopets is a cheat answer. I miss those weird but aesthetically pleasing ‘shrines’ people made for their favourite characters, those were standalone sites that were like wikis all of their own for just one character with some fanart and stories to go with it. But now I’m just getting nostalgic.

people always talk about french or italian accents sounding nice and romantic in other languages. does the american english accent sound nice in ANY language, or does it just sound like shit?
Because I'm jelly of you and people from native English speaking countries. I hate you but wish I were born where you were.
Like in US the movie, that movie will always be about the first and third world in my head canon.
American accents are seen as more annoying and/or comedic in Europe, not sexy.
Personally I like some American accents, but I don't think they sound romantic or attractive, I just think they sound quirky and different. Like the Brooklyn accent, it's not turning me on but it's an interesting accent to hear in small doses.
On a funny sidenote. In Latino dubs southeners hillbilly type characters are always translated to have this thick mexican accents, sometimes even when the dub is not made by mexicans.
Is hilarious because some of this shows are translated to mostly have a very neutral spanish accent and suddenly the texan character start talking like a mexican and using mexican lingo.
My favorite mexican hillbilly is Cletus from the Simpsons. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N41crCuagRA
You know people can learn survival skills, right? It's not that difficult actually if you get used to it, i think the actual problem is this >>458065
, people always joke about dying on a zombie apocalypse because they know they wouldn't last one week. I think at least some women on poorer countries could do it since they actually need to farm and kill animals to live, they're already used to it, i learned to do so living there.

I know people really hate chihuahuas, a lot of my dog friendly friends and family vehemently hate them, but I love them so much. They look so fucking stupid but are so lovable, I want a chihuahua so bad. I follow so many chihuahua instagrams and I want to cry over how cute they all are.

I want to cry just thinking about your chihuahua. Just reading that he doesn't like booties is like an arrow straight to my heart- something about dogs having preferences about things always makes me so soft even though it's not that strange or new of a concept lol. Thank you for not ripping me a new asshole about how they're dumb rat dogs like I usually get from people.
I have a Pekingese right now and I absolutely adore her and the breed, but fuck I really want a short haired Chihuahua.
agreed. French accents sound muddy.
It's a meme, but I think the Finnish english accent is cute.
Probably some biblical shit
I guess you're a prophet now

Pugs are so cute too! I know people shit on Marzia and Pewdiepie but I'm so weak for their pugs, especially Maya!
My dream is to own and raise a beautiful cotton ball like this, but my short haired peke is already a grooming nightmare for me (I still love and try my best with her though) so just a dream it'll stay…

My friends have chihuahuas and pekingenses and one of the female chihuahuas bred with 2 of the boy peeks and they have pekichus now. They're so cute. The chihuahua also bred with a yorkie. These are two half sisters in the photo lol
I knew someone will attack me fir this.
I am not a fan of how pugs got changed throughout the years. I am all for reverting the breed to how it used to be (bigger snout and smaller eyes). If it would be possible, I would buy a retromops, but there are no reputable breeders.
I still love my pug and do everything so that he lives a comfortable and happy life, like plenty of responsible pug owners.

I kind of miss YouTube culture from back in like 2007-2011.
I miss there being YT groups, private messaging and communities, too. No idea why they got rid of that.
Also, comment sections were even trashier back then, if you can imagine that. It was fun reading a particularly inflammatory comment, going on to the troll's channel and seeing their comment section in shambles from people fighting with them, with each other, with thin air, etc. No one has time for that anymore unless it's a celebrity, lmao.
People would also have horrendous channel themes. So many repeating images. Also, this shit:

One thing I remembered recently was when youtube introduced annotations onto videos, and eventually they briefly added the option to let any user add whatever annotations they wanted onto your video, so some videos would just have the entire screen covered with random shit the whole time. That was always hilarious to young me.
nta but I also miss old YouTube too, back before it was less commercialized and more about user interactivity idk
nowadays everything gets copyright creators striked and it's become a literal business for some ppl but I remember when it was just dumb memes and moviemaker/imovie lyric videos and 3 part episodes of anime/tv shows
I can't remember if the rot set in before or after the Google+ integration in 2013, the one that tried to force everyone to use their real names. Remember when they let you customize your profile and have wallpapers?>>458456
They have fucked over thousands of perfectly good videos that relied on those annotations as interactive buttons.
Has anyone heard of Kris Gage who writes "essays" on Medium? Apart from her fluffy "writing" about MBTI (bullshit, more concisely), she seems like a Cool Girl type and that's pretty frustrating, since she's a 30-something.
For example: https://krisgage.com/2017/07/17/friendship-is-a-toxic
Some points, such as some friendships being "codependent" and "toxic
", do ring true, but it seems like she's just so vehemently against friendship. Glossing over her points, it seems like she's never had healthy relationships with good boundaries, with people who share common interests.
Like goddamn, this passage makes me snort out loud: > I rode a motorcycle cross-country in the middle of Midwest winter. I went from making six digits, then owning my own business, to being a bartender. I’m an attractive woman in her early 30’s and marriage is nowhere near the top of my list of priorities.
Wow, congrats. You sound so unique. Not.
The other thing that pisses me off is that a lot of people think she's an amazing writer, but she sounds like an edgy teenager trying to sound wise. Nothing amazing about that.
I'm getting hit by nostalgia rn. I remember making a Youtube account in 2008 when I was 13, and immediately getting to make friends thanks to communities. I vividly remember spending time customizing my channel, setting background, profile picture, colors, bio with fancy characters… and then lurking through other people's channels to see how they customized theirs. Exchanging comments in each other's channels, being in actual communities.
I still talk to some of those people, 11 years later.
i miss the channel themes so much, i remember how i spent hours on mspaint drawing hamtaro characters onto a template i found on deviantart
there's so little options to customize your channel nowadays, it's boring

My fiance proposed to me about a month ago with a dummy ring and is letting me pick out my own ring myself. We kinda live in bumfuck nowhere without any fine jewelry stores to access easily, so I was planning on ordering online. I fell in love with a custom ring I made on a site, then saw how suspiciously cheap it was and investigated reviews. They have overwhelmingly positive ones (that feel almost fake) but the critical reviews seem to think they don't use real diamonds/gems or use bad cuts.
I guess what I'm asking is, anyone know of a reputable place to buy an engagement ring online? Budget is roughly 2k USD. I just want something sparkly and elegant, not necessarily the most expensive looking.
Interesting, is coloured moissanite a thing? (Since I was interested in getting a gemstone or semi precious stone in my ring.) Will have to look into this when I'm home from work. >>458906
Yeah I guess I should just educate myself since it'll ideally be the ring I wear for the rest of my life.

I think I've only browsed those threads around 2 times, but thank you so, so much. A lot of what I read there I was able to apply recently when I was helping a friend through a bad breakup with one of the most delusional scrotes I've encountered irl. You dun good, nonnie
