Is she the ultimate femcel?

She is too dark to be chinese. She is probably closer to vietnamese.

No she's not. She's maybe a bit darker than average for East Asians. The lighting in the video doesn't help and she's probably tanned (unlike many who religiously stay out of the sun for this exact reason). Also, there are Vietnamese (Southern ones actually i.e. not the ones bordering China) who are as light as the lightest East Asians. Gene pools are not determined or limited by territories controlled by states. East Asians themselves range from olive (by European standards) to light brown to brown. They tan easily and darkly as well.

What does your S.O. smell like? Anonymous 131264[Reply]

My husband smells like warm musky wax. When we snuggle I like to picture his smell like drawing with crayons in a sunlit, dusty attic. I find it comforting.

fun fact: the contraceptive pill can change which men you find smell good, meaning you can end up marrying a disgusting scrote and not realize it until you try for a baby

Weird, yet delicious, mix of musk and fine wood. He's also really good at choosing colognes so it's a plus.
But his "natural" smell drives me crazy. I love hugging him in the mornings.

seems a little weird, but i recently went to visit my ex (who im still in love with :/ he broke it off when i visited last after being LDR for 2 years) and he smells just.. manly?

its strange. good strange. most dudes just cover themselves in cologne and hope it attracts but he doesn't, and he just smells manly.

to go into more depth, its like a deep smell, kinda musky/sweat smell? its just really fucking alluring ugh

Anonymous 139410

I’m so jealous of people who smell nice naturally. My sweat smells like onions, regardless of my diet. I even tried taking fenugreek as it’s supposed to make you smell like syrup but it didn’t work. My diet is pretty good so I’ve no idea what causes it.

My SO has the same nice musky smell as the others here. It’s funny, I’ve always liked how my partners smell but to them they always think they smell bad. Maybe someone out there will love my onion smell?

Coping with anxiety Anonymous 139336[Reply]

My anxiety has been so bad this week I feel physically weak, its hard to breathe and my chest hurts. Its debilitating. I've got like this often but I can't stand it anymore and I am meeting up with my LDR bf for the 2nd time in forever which is making it even worse. Last time I was so anxious I could barely talk to him or move or go outside, and this time I just really want it to be better, I want to be able to have normal conversations and to not feel like I'm out of breathe and dying constantly.
How do I cope?

Inb4 everyone says go to therapy

You can do cognitive behavioral therapy on yourself a bit. Talk to yourself as if you were a friend giving advice, explain to your friend-self what the feelings are like, where they are in your body, and what happens to them over time like when they peak and then subside.

Explain to friend-self what the triggers are . Can you avoid them? Can you practice gradual exposure to them in the same way you would treat fear of the dark?

Next, probe deeper into whatever underlying fears there are. E.g if the trigger is a place, what happened at the place? Why did that thing upset you? Does that thing play into some core belief such as fear of rejection or unworthiness? For most people anxiety gets worse as the mental self-talk approaches the core fear.

Once you’ve identified the deepest fear you can, imagine the worst case scenario for that fear coming true. Is it reasonable? If it happened, how would you deal with it? (If this is difficult to figure out, again imagine giving this advice to a friend.) You are more capable of strategizing and overcoming this scenario than anxiety leads you to believe. Next time a trigger happens, lead your train of thought down this strategizing path rather than the catastrophizing path.

Finally, start practicing living in the third person. What this means is that you start observing the feelings and things that happen to you, rather than experiencing their grasp on you. (You can also think of the anxiety as an external force rather than identifying it with yourself.) E.g. instead of “I feel butterflies in my stomach”, think “I notice Mary is having a feeling which is being caused by memories of this place, interesting.” While in the third person you can experience instead compassion and love for yourself. This helps because it seems that emotions of love and anxiety cannot be felt simultaneously. Welcome the anxiety as a guest, allow yourself to feel it, and let it leave when it does. It only has power over you if it is a real part of you. And I’m certain it’s not the real you.

One last thing, expect results in the course of a few months rather than same day. The last thing you want is anxiety about not getting rid of anxiety ;) that’s typically the biggest cause of spirals but also the easiest to snap out of. You got this sis.

I’ll be around if you need me to clarify anything . I’m in the process of purging out traces of my own anxiety, Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

>How do I cope?

I'd first start by recognizing if you actually have an anxiety disorder or just a shitty life(very similar surface level wise). You wouldn't happen to be someone who has middle class income, friends, a college degree, can afford rent and food, has a meaningful hobby, with good physical health, and has a fulfilling relationship, would you?

I do this a lot. I havr a narrative running through my head, sometimes I pretend I am talking to myself or just explaining to someone I know. I put a lot of it on paper in a diary, thousands of pages of this.
>Explain to friend-self what the triggers are . Can you avoid them? Can you practice gradual exposure to them in the same way you would treat fear of the dark?
I don't wanna be particular about what I'm anxious over with this date, but it really isn't unavoidable. I am directly exposing myself to this and its got a chance of actual occuring and fucking ke over.
>Next, probe deeper into whatever underlying fears there are. E.g if the trigger is a place, what happened at the place? Why did that thing upset you?

Its pretty simple and tangible and rooted in real events.

This is good. I do this sometimes to make myself feel better but I feel like if I do things to make myself feel better instead of mentally preparing myself to handle catastrophic events by living out the worst case scenerio in my head, then when it does happened I will be to weak to handle it, or that it will happen simply to spite me.

Seems like the most work needs to happen here. The point is to actually be prepared for things that may reasonably come to pass, not just cope. Based on your reply it seems a lot of things could come to pass, so it’s not all in your head.

For me as well it was the home situation that induced anxiety. Things I had to be prepared for that actually happened were having my phone stolen, books confiscated, given glares/shouting throughout the day, being told not to play with my siblings since I was a bad influence, and refusal to accept my wedding. I’m not gonna lie, there was a lot more to fixing this than mere coping. You’re right, feeling better only helps somewhat and can blind you to what you need to do in these situations. I had to make all the preparations to leave home at the drop of a hat: saving money, buying a car, reducing possessions to fit in said car, getting my own phone plan…basically avoiding any potential financial leverage my parents could use to coerce me (I was 21). The stuff I said earlier was more how to cope when you’re in the grip of anxiety , but it sounds like you need more preventative measures. Unfortunately having an LDR may not be compatible with your current situation , I’ll leave that to your judgement though.

Couple more tips I forgot, if you want to avoid being weak when the worst comes to pass, the anxiety state of mind is actually counterproductive. Why? It’s not you, it’s a primal fight/flight response. So
1) the earlier you can push down the anxiety feelings the better since it gets harder as you wait. If the feeling is in the early stages, you may have to decide “nope, not going to listen to that passing emotion bc it’s not helpful now. Maybe later”. If it’s getting bad, this is counterintuitive but lean into the feeling. Imagine it has a shape in you and feel every aspect of it as if it felt good. This oddly enough can cause the bigger pains to subside; they are like those optical illusions that are present at a distance but fade when you gPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

A lot of low level therapists just sit there in silence anyway and let you talk yourself around to a solution. You might as well save your money and just do it yourself, with some selfhelp books to guide you in the right direction.

It is truly a tragedy every time one of them does those drastic and irreversible changes to their bodies and ends up killing herself.
As much as I hate all trannies, TiFs dying somehow gives me an angry-sad-pity feel instead of relief when a TiM kills himself. Perhaps because I believe they could have done so many things like being an advocate for, say, affordable child care for single mothers. But instead, she ends up in the gender cult and kills herself in the process.
With TiMs, as the meme goes:
>and nothing of value was lost.
They would still be incels if they "detransitioned" either way; you cannot take the misogynist out of the man, LMAO.

Something to hug. I usually cuddle with picrel but soft pillows also do. I think it stemmed from my childhood when I loved Mickey Mouse a lot and always hugged my Mickey Mouse pillow. Now, I can't sleep without anything in my arms. It just feels so wrong and empty.

I can't sleep when someone in the room is talking, when the tv is playing, any lights, or if it's too humid/the air isn't fresh in the room, also when it's too hot or it's cold but I don't have a blanket. Other than that I can sleep just fine.

Letting anybody get into your head and make you feel anything negative is depraved pickme behavior Anonymous 138929[Reply]

You have to learn to enjoy your existence alone and learn to calm the f down, before relying on other people. Because virtually all they ever do most of the time, is let you down.

But how have most people here not learned this already ?

It is so maladjusted to depend on other people or their approval for happiness. It's pathetic and honestly makes you seem unstable and depraved if you let people manipulate your emotions like that.

Hey its just exactly what men want. For you to be a spineless and easy to manipulate turd to use as a doormat.

Solitude is everything. Jesus why would you let MOST people have any influence over how you feel? It's like handing a murderer a gun, and begging them not to kill you.

But you have to be insanely ignorant not to realize this already.
