Favorite/Sexiest Men's Clothing Anonymous 11679[Reply]

I'm curious. What type of clothing do you like to see on men? Care to post examples? I love muscular men who wear black v-necks for some reason…

I know other women who like men in 3 piece suits, but men rarely wear them.

1889-90 Men's fash…

Love Western men's fashion in the mid to late 1800s. I love the long coats and the heeled shoes. There's something dramatic about it that is very attractive to me, but not as crazy as what they wore in the 1700s. I like that it was considered manly to put some effort into your appearance back then. I'd obviously find it goofy if I saw a guy in 2023 dressing like this because it'd just look like he was wearing a costume, but I love period dramas because actors can create that suspension of disbelief that you're not just seeing some dorky guy in a costume.

Competition induced pricing.
Midlevel men's fashion essentially does not exist anymore. Low level men's fashion consists of different colors of jeans and graphic tees, or rough storebrands of inferior quality to ancient homespun wool.
If you have a boyfriend and want to cohabit with him then you would want him to not spend $7,000 of his $60,000 income on a suit that he wears while digging holes when eggs cost $7 a carton.

I would probably change my face to be more beautiful if I could, but I don't have a "dream face" or a lot of secific things I want to change. Maybe my receding chin from mouth-breathing.

The thought of having plastic surgery makes me uncomfortable and I don't trust mydelf to keep up with the upkeep as I age. I would maybe consider botox or something in the future if I develop deep lines in my forehead, but even that kind of gives me the willies.

Anonymous 18254

Oh, sorry, I meant that I have the skin colour of the woman in CLAY 2-3. My nose looks more like EARTH 6-7's.
You're right. I know that I'm really just using surgery as an excuse to "procrastinate" on things that I am already capable of doing, like building self-esteem. I tell myself that I'll do what all the hot girls do as soon as I get my rhinoplasty, that I can't do x or y because only attractive women do that and I don't think I measure up to that standard yet.

I'm learning how to love myself. I never really believed that I was capable of being pretty when I was a kid, so many times I didn't try because I was afraid of failing and proving myself wrong. But the past couple of years I've begun doing a lot of self-care. You know, things that real girls do, like manis and pedis, and makeup, and dressing cute. And I feel sooo much better about myself, and many days I look into the mirror and feel cute.

But imposter syndrome and body dysmorphia telling me that I'm not cute, I'm just projecting an illusion. I don't have the delicate, Eurocentric features that align with western beauty standards. Really, I know that a rhinoplasty won't help me. My issues are purely mental rather than physical.

But thank you, anon. I really hope that I can come to find myself pretty someday.

Anonymous 18262

>>Are you happy with your face?
Overall, yes. However, I would like clearer and even-toned skin.
>>What would you change if you could?
I want to lift my under eyes. I do it every time I look in the mirror. I also really need my teeth whitened.
>>Would you get surgery?
Yes. It's a part of my financial plan. I want a blepharoplasty, chin filler, and breast implants. Maybe even a rhinoplasty. A friend of mine had her sugar daddy pay for all of her surgeries and she looks great. However, I don't think I could bring myself to sleep with a man so much older than me.

Not really i wish i was cuter. My nose is crooked and has a tiny hump and my eyes are hooded. I wish i had a more neotenous face tbh, i look older than i am since forever

Anonymous 18342


I don't get it. I've always liked that kind of nose. I think I started liking it when my mom showed me Jon hexum in making of a male model
it's such a cool nose type, very unique. besides i always figured nose jobs were dumb since it'll just show up in your kids anyway

I woke up early today so I got my regular workout done and did a 4km bike ride! But half of it was down-hill so it was really more like 2km. I'm so happy the weather is getting nice so I can get on my bike more and grow my legs!

I made my April routines and I'm really excited I think I might just start it today. I have no pull bar or any furniture or nearby parks to do pull exercises unfortunately.

routine 1: push up x20, 1min plank x 3, 5sec shpulder touch pairs x10

routine 2: baby shrimp squat pair x10, single leg glute bridge pair x10, lateral lunge pair x10

Sorry to fill up this thread but I have no one to talk to irl about fitness. Yesterday I did routine 1 and it felt so good! I have good DOMs for the first time in a while. Today I was able to do regular shrimp squats for routine 2 although my joints were cracky. I went on a ~6km bike ride and had a good breakfast with meat, eggs, and rice. Sooo excited to get pumped for summer!

Your posts are motivating, I've neglected workout lately but I will try to get back to gym this week.

Thanks! You should try to get back asap, even if it's just for some light training. It's really addicting.

I woke up way too early today and couldn't even do errands because nothing was open yet so I ended up biking 14km. I took off a km because a lot of it was downhill. Squats are going to be hard tomorrow.

On a different note, does anyone have any suggestions for natty fitness instagrammers? Perferably 30-40 years old? With minimum shilling?


how to look mature when you have 'cute' features Anonymous 18318[Reply]

like subject says, i want to look more mature. i'm 24, but i have a very round face and big eyes (girls on socials would say "doe eyes") but i get mistaken for younger than i really am. often times its led to people talking down to me as if i were a child. i lost over 30kg in the last year, but my face is still very round. i really like feminine jfashion styles like dark girly and picrel, but as time goes by and im entering a period of my life where i'm starting my career in healthcare, i feel my "cute" appearance has become a detriment to my goals. what can i do to gradually transition into looking more mature?

Anonymous 18319

I have the same issue
>feminine jfashion styles
You can start by dropping this and dressing more mature. You don't have to dress matronly, but simple things like ditching bows, wearing more fitted longer skirts and coats and changing shoes really make a difference. I found that combining medium/high-range designer "adult" items (like LV Alma bags, Stuart Weitzman shoes, etc) with "cuter" feminine clothes makes you look more adult and put-together while still maintaining your overall style.
Makeup makes a huge difference too. I found that, contrary to what I thought would happen, bold lipstick (like bright red) makes people mistake me for younger more often. Look at normie western influencers and see what they're doing, sharper arched eyebrows, dark eyeliner especially in the lower lashes or the millennial "cat eye" can age your face quite a bit.

Anonymous 18324

i'm in the same boat as you at 21, i don't really have any solutions besides what above anon said. if you want to look mature, don't accentuate the things that make you appear young. but yeah, people so often assume i'm 16/17 that sometimes i want to say i'm that age for the lols. i do think the way you carry yourself makes a bit of difference, i think sometimes that if i acted more confident and sure of myself it might lead people to assume i'm older but it could also have the opposite effect

Anonymous 18334


I'd like to know as well. I still look 14 and I feel like only pedos and other creeps are attracted to me. People tell me I should be glad I look younger but I feel like I can't be taken seriously because of it.

All you lucky bastards pooping the first time you wake up. It takes me 1-2h to feel the urge to poop after waking up. So I make myself get up at 6-6:30am just so I can leave the house on time to get to work.

My routine:
>alarm rings
>immediately get up by turning lights on
>spring out of bed and go cook breakfast
>boil hot water for tea or coffee
>drink gallons of water to hopefully encourage body to shit
>eat breakfast
>still don’t feel like taking a shit, drink 3-4 cups of coffee/tea while browsing imageboards

When did you get your first period? Anonymous 4796[Reply]

As the title says.
I have a friend that has an 8yo daughter and she already has hairs under her arms. My friend is a little bit freaked out because she doesn't want her 8yo to get her period yet. I mean, who would want that?
I got mine when I was 11 or 12, and so did my friend. Do you guys think this is genetic? We've read stuff online about it but we want to hear your opinion. Also she has gone to the doc before and even though her daughter is not showing any "puberty signs", the doctor said that nowadays is normal to get their period earlier than before.

I got mine when i was 13, was too scared/ashamed to bring the subject up to my dad (mom died when i was younger, my dad never really discussed feminine hygiene stuff up to that point) for a month or two so i stole some pads when i was at my friend's house and looked up how to use them.
Later when i told him he went out and bought a large pack of pads from Tesco and hid it in case my brothers would make fun of me.
I still remember catching him googling how to handle this stuff later that day lol he was very flustered, but he was generally a shy man and i suspect that i may have inherited my mild asperger's from him.

I got boob lumps at 8 years old (me and my sisters called them "quarters" because it felt like a big coin under your skin lol) but no period until like 12 years old. I think I had hair well before period too… but can't remember. I wouldn't worry about it.

11, still upset about it

Anonymous 18307

About 11 or 12. It started by spotting and the blood was black. Not sure if that is normal for a first period.

Anonymous 18330

Shortly after turning 12. My mom started crying and I started crying because she was crying. This happened in Ross the department store lol. She got her period at 13, she lived in a rural Mexican mountain area so I doubt there was anything disrupting her hormones.

Are you into being thin, or curvy, or maybe fit? Were you born a cone shape but long to be a pear? Or maybe you're a banana but would rather be an hourglass?

'Normal' depends on your age/generation, location, and context. There's a difference between a 30-year-old office worker strutting business casual versus a 20-year-old university student on a day off. People from different parts of the world will not dress the same as each other, either.

eating disorder thread Anonymous 4629[Reply]

eating disorder thread - its time for another

do you have an eating disorder?
which one?
are you attempting recovery?
how long have you had it?
what caused it?
how does it disrupt your daily life, if it does?

i have a purging disorder.
i kind of want to attempt recovery sometimes, then i see something like my crush looking happier talking to another girl thats skinnier than me, i think about how much better i could look/how i could compensate for my stupid ugly fact, and i think about the comments my dad gives me when i 'eat bad' even though im 19 bmi/skinnier than him (hes overweight, i think.) ive had mine since i was 13. i was a fat child growing up because my parents didnt know how to feed me, and instead of giving me healthy food they just called me fat/made fun of me. it disrupts my daily life heavily because i cant eat anything without purging after, and it just ruins my mood and has disrupted my health. ill be devastated if i go up 0.1 a pound

I don't think I have an eating disorder but I think I easily fall into disordered eating. I've been counting calories for like 12-13 years, so it's pretty much automatic now. I was eating at a pretty healthy amount every day and hitting good macros. But I went out and drank and ate a lot last weekend and I've been eating at a 1000 calorie deficit for the past few days to make up for it. I'm trying not to repeat the pattern this weekend because it's surprisingly easy to live off protein bars and coffee but I don't imagine it's very healthy in the long run.

i don’t wanna put anyone i love through the discomfort of seeing my condition/talking to me about it. i’ve been reverting back to my old habits lately and have tried recovering so many times but it just doesn’t stick. i’m just so used to being underweight to the point where it feels strange not to be; i feel addicted to it. i can’t feel good about myself without it, i know it’s pathetic yet i can never fully stop. it’s become a part of me but i just with i could atleast stop unintentionally hurting others because of my own problems. i wish i was never anorexic to begin with but it’s too late

Anonymous 18269

Is there anyone else who developed anorexia before they hit puberty? I was bullied for being chubby when I was a kid, and at 11 I developed my eating disorder. Health complications aside, I’m just so tired of this all. I remember wanting to chop the fat off my stomach when I would have been about 5, and even though I’m not fat now, I gained weight in my latter teen years because of finally hitting puberty (albeit very late). I can’t stand my body, but especially my breasts. I feel so fat because of them, for a couple years I even used to bind them to feel better, but that made them saggy and look even worse. I can’t get over my complex of wanting to be a skinny preteen again physically, which is horrible to admit. I don’t want breasts or the curves I developed and I feel so uncomfortable in my own body because of them. I so desperately want to lose weight again, it’s all I think about every single day. I’m miserable to be honest and I can’t even talk to my therapist about it.

>which one?
>are you attempting recovery?
I sometimes do but I can never unlearn how many calories or nutrients there is in food.
>how long have you had it?
1 year
>what caused it?
Gaining 20 pounds freshman year of college. I didn't notice it until mom started mentioning it.
>how does it disrupt your daily life, if it does?
It's made me more aware of beauty and aesthetics. I wouldn't say I'm fatphobic in the autistic way people are, though. I also now plan all of my meals everyday. It's made me develop a work ethic and grit. I now exercise and go the gym, I'm also more sensual and more aware of my body. I'm also not into vending-machine food like I was before. I no longer feel tempted by chips and soda.

How, I have quit for only 3 months and I desperately want to start again. I can quit drinking, but not smoking is misery.

Anonymous 18212

The deal I made with myself was to eat whatever for a year as long as I didn't smoke. Cost me (or rather, I gained) 15kg (~30 pounds), but I didn't smoke once, not even a puff. And now that I'm secure in my no-smoking life, I'm dropping the weight. I hate being fat, but even so, the 30 pounds were worth it.
Smoking is so bad for you, anything else you can do to avoid smoking is worth it (except maybe heroin or meth).
So my advice: use any help available. Use nicotine patchs (have them ready at your place), nicotine gum, electronic cigarette if you need it, regular gum, sweets, a cup of tea every time you want to smoke, read Allen Carr, ask help from your entourage, just wait up until the tobacco seller is closed for the night, so you delay and when it opens again, you don't want it anymore, go see a doc, go see an addiction specialist, a psychologist, read Allen Carr again, etc. Each of these alternate scenarios are still scenarios where you don't smoke, so they count as a win.
Oftentimes (before this time) I failed because I thought there was a right way to stop (e.g. cold turkey) and anything else was a failure, so I might as well start smoking again. That's the nicotine luring you.
Hang in there: you know it's shite, it costs you money, it destroys your body. You know you look like a twat while smoking, and you smell like one. You know it. Act accordingly. Anything else is bullshit argument to get you back to smoking.

Anonymous 18320

This method also helps me cut down on drinking and even though I eat more I still don't gain weight because alcohol has so many calories.
