Is close female friendship even possible?ive always wanted a best friend but if always seems girls are super close with each other for a little while then they end up hating each other out of nowhere. Is it even worth trying to find friends?

hearing that it's harder to make and keep friends as you get older is so depressing to me.

i'm going to be graduating college soon. i pretty much stopped talking to my high school friends as soon as we graduated, and the most we do now is like each other's instagram posts. i'm worried - will my friends and i stop talking after graduating? do we even have anything in common outside of having fun lunches and gossiping together? they're all the fujo/nerdy types, just like me.

No. 61319

Same boat, anon. I'm graduating soon and my best friends and times were in college (freshman and sophomore year, not later when the courseload is higher). You will grow, and you might grow apart as your interests change. But if you're really friends, you'll find something to bond over. My friend and I from high school don't cosplay anymore (she works too many jobs right now, I'm working on my master's), but we still go out to lunch when we can and we've always been there for each other. I can't say that for all of my friends, but I don't mind keeping the ones that matter.

I also made a few friends recently joining local organizations with another friend of mine. Don't forget about social events and clubs (I swear to you, adult knitting clubs are way more fun than they sound), they can also help introduce you to more people.

No. 61324

I'm the same age as you anon but there is hope! It's true that as people go into the "career and childhood" stages of their lives, friendships drop off however I've read a few studies about how women are more likely than men to begin socialising again in their late forties onwards after they settle into their careers or their kids grow up.
Another positive spin on how we lose friends as we mature is also because we finally begin to stop putting up with crap and instead put ourselves first rather than the kind of petty cliques that teenagers find themselves in.

I myself am also going through the depressing 'Frances Ha' transition of losing all my close friends, mostly as they move away or enter relationships whilst I'm stuck in a loop, but I am also finding that it's important to remember that you never know who you might reconnect with later in life. Also, pushing yourself to go to something regular like a class or group is really beneficial to stop you from becoming rusty at communicating with others.

>You really can't force a friendship.
Painfully true, it's really important to not take it personally if someone just has enough commitments in their life already

I like friends! Friends are the best! Friendship is always possible! You should never give up on friendship because I like friends.

No. 61394

I have literally one female friend. I met her last year. My old BFF from years ago was never really a friend. We rarely hung out, has literally never once helped me through a hard time in my life the few times i came to her for comfort, but always wanted me to help her when shit got bad. Finally just got sick of it.

All the other girls I know just rarely talk to me.

But unfortunately this one girl is super busy. She's literally always working because housing is so expensive out where we live, so I don't get to see her much but it's like no time passed in that moment.
When we do talk she always asks me if things are going well which the old bff never asked.

Even if I'm not her best friend at least i have someone to fill that void in for me.

But i honestly don't have confidence it will last. Either she'll move and forget about me, or meet someone better. I'm just trying to enjoy it until then.

She's the first one to buy me a christmas gift though.

Same, anon. It's not a kawaii doll face but more of a perpetual chubby-cheeked child face. Like an awkward preteen whose face still has to grow in proportion. I'm 20 now so I hope it will change over the next few years.
I would love to wear more make-up to match my elaborate style of clothing, but it just looks really off. Especially stuff like eyeliner or lipstick always looks like a kid smeared paint on its face.

I have been told by 3 strangers I am the spitting image of Emily Kinney (Beth from The Walking Dead) always when my hair is in a ponytail like hers in the show. I have the same small lips, round cheeks, pale skin, but a somewhat different and more crooked nose and much worse skin, so that takes away from the dollishness factor. I think it's more of a general "cute" face than a dolly face. When I don't know wtf to do with my hair, I look at photos of Emily actually…

My mom happened upon a VenusAngelic video once and brought me into the room to show me this "weird doll girl that looks like you!"

Had my kid at 22, entirely unprepared for mom life. Yeah, my body bounced back, no stretch marks, perfectly healthy baby, etc., but I wish we could've waited a little longer. It's just a LOT to handle emotionally and of course physically when you can barely take care of yourself (as most young adults struggle to do these days.) It forces you into growing up and being responsible immediately. You can't just do things you want to do any more. Want to go see a movie with your SO? Well, you don't want to be THAT person who brings a crying infant/very mobile toddler to a movie theater. Get someone else to watch the baby? YOU'RE A HORRIBLE MOM WHO JUST WANTS TO GO OUT ALL THE TIME INSTEAD OF RAISE YOUR KID. (That is, if you can find someone/aren't too broke to pay for a babysitter.) Sorry for ranting, but it feels like the ONLY positives to being a young mom is that I won't be too old to have fun when my kid is basically grown and I have more energy right now to deal with a young child than someone who's 30 or 40.

No. 61312

You could not have kids since you seem to care more about your figure bouncing back and being a "cool mom" and don't seem to give a shit about being far too naive for motherhood. It's a fucking person not a chihuahua or handbag.

No. 61329

It varies by your life situation, really. I'm 25 now and know I can handle a newborn easier than I did 3 years ago (financially and emotionally.) However, there are some 30 year olds entirely unprepared for children and there are 20 year olds who are great parents.

No. 61194

In recordings my voice is very shy and high-pitched, but deep and strong in my head like you mentioned. It creeps me out, but thanks for the reminder anon.

No. 61204

I've noticed that different languages lend themselves to different pitches. My voice gets high-pitched in English (I have a British accent since I lived there as a kid), a bit lower pitched in French (I have a central African accent since I lived there as a teen), and significantly lower pinched in my native language (which is full of consonant clusters), since that's the easiest way they flow.

No. 61220

True, every time I record my voice for a voicemessage (ex. in Whatsapp) I always listen to it after, it's so different and sounds so much better than the voice I hear when I speak. A bit nasal and I'd like it more high pitched, but still.

draw a line with a black sharpie 8 inches under your eyes for maximum bags and maximum kawaii ness :333

I have really deep-set eyes, so I have sunken hollows instead of eyebags. Fucking sucks because the only 'cure' is getting some sort of fillers.

>I heard it's going out of style now though
I always wonder how people with very trendy cosmetic procedures deal with looking archaic, especially if it's something as permanent as shaving your jaw. I mean, if they were just getting their nose fixed to their liking, it wouldn't be an issue, but if you're willing to revamp your entire face to fit the Gangnam Unnie or Instahoe look, it seems like keeping up with trends would still be an issue for them.

No. 61108

That's an overstatement. Maybe in large Asian cities but people in small towns typically don't look like plastic unnies who all get the same features.

why the fuck would you want this?
I am white and have huge ass blue eyes but the downside of this is that they come with disgusting big eyebags like your pic in OP.
The pic also reminds me of what my eyes look like in the morning after a night of crying my eyes out. Is this actually desirable?

i know there's some kind of lgbt thread on here already, but bisexuality is always the one that gets the least focused attention. It's also probably the one that is taken least seriously in a way, because of so many attention seekers who fake it, and the fact that there are actually people who can't wrap their heads around it being an actual thing??

I'm like perfectly 50/50 bisexual. i have this huge, equal thirst for both body forms. (not to be confused with pansexuality, i'm talking about only being attracted to biological males and females)

I'm the opposite, but can relate to you anon.

I find 2d and 3d men hot, although I'm not that interested in sex, so judge men primarily on personality + money.

With 2d girls though, lol, I can definitely form crushes. 3D doesn't work for me though.

No. 60892

I think it's because it's the whole "perfect fictitious man" thing. Like you know how the character acts and when there isn't anything canonically you can fill in the gaps with your own fantasies and theoretically you can't be wrong because it's not a real character.

Whereas 3d men are complete wildcards. You don't know what they're thinking or what they can do, and so many men are so scummy that you think they aren't worth it.

3d women on the other hand are less of a mystery. You (to some level) know and can relate to other women so they are comfy and nice, so you can actually see yourself befriending and maybe even dating one.

No. 60959

I'm the same, though i tend to be attracted to 3D men more than 3D women. I prefer 2D either way.

Definitely know what you mean. In my case, I think it might have a lot to do with what >>60892 said.

I'm in a long term relationship with a guy that's not going that great, and I think that has made my attraction to women and 2D men even worse. I find myself accidentally comparing him to fictitious guys and wishing I could be with a woman instead.

I thought a dance discussion thread might be fun!

Do any of you like to dance as a hobby?
What sort of dancing?
Fav YT dance cover channels?

+ dancing is great exercise, so maybe this thread can help inspire some fitness.

I'm currently a bit obsessed with Kpop dance covers.

Sorry to kinda necro a thread but holy shit same, anon. I'm a massive fan of Prince and his first wife was a belly dancer.
I don't think lessons are too far from where I live but I'm just a little shy I suppose, if I did go I'd have to go with a friend.
I'd love to learn to dance with a sword on my head like Mayte did aaaa

Anyone else do an adult ballet class? How much do the teachers correct your technique?

I just started an adult ballet class recently and the teacher makes general comments on technique but not specific ones to individuals. I did ballet when I was younger and my teacher nitpicking is the reason it's still quite ingrained 10 years later, I think it's a pretty essential part of it. I see other girls in the class making obvious mistakes and they don't get corrected, and it makes me worry I'm doing the same. I do understand that it's meant to be fun, we're not future pros taking exams or anything and it might be too confrontational for beginners, but still. I feel like maybe I should ask directly but I don't think it'd be appropriate for her to pick on one student either (even if they ask for it).

No. 60861

You have to go to an intensive or masterclass with very limited participants if you want that much correction. It's rare for teachers to over-correct adults, not only is it unfair for casual dancers but it may turn them off from continuing to spend money on classes.

No. 60883


I used to be really interested in this show but the awkward relationships in trailers made me nope out

No. 61465

Exactly what >>60861 said, although I'm sure that it's still worth letting the teacher know that you personally welcome critique.
People who weren't raised on a diet of shame, fed to them by nagging ballet teachers, don't understand us anon. I was part of a casual dance group recently and people got really offended when I pointed out how someone clearly knew the steps perfectly but wasn't dancing with confidence.
