1 This is stupid. The labelling. Good Charlotte, number one, isn't goth. They are just stereotyping goth like you are. It's sickening. Goth isn't even that. Gothics were a tribe back in B.C. times. Get your ideas and knowledge in order.

1 Let me give you a 'Goth Rundown' - Black boots are nice, preferably if they have platformed soles. It doesn't matter what they go with, you just have to like them. Black nail polish is all well and good but purples, reds and greens are nice too. Your natural hair colour will do just fine. Studs and zippers are for the punk scene - real punk, not the rubbish that the majority of people listen to such as Blink 182 and Good Charlotte. Real punk is The Ramones and The Sex Pistols. Anyway, back to the subject at hand. Black eyeliner is good too, just don't make yourself look like Avril Lavigne. And if those are 'Goth Essentials' then you need to read up on Gothicism. Pastels ARE a good colour scheme, they soften your look. And don't say that Good Charlotte are goth because they are not. You want goth music? Try Cradle of Filth, The Cure, Siouxsie and The Banshees, Sisters of Mercy etc. Gothicism is NOT a fashion statement - its a life style. If you can't handle criticisms then don't bother. And one last thing, if you follow the instructions from the article, you will become an out and out, true gothic wanna-be! Good luck!

1 That is the most stereotypical article I have ever seen! And even the ratings are retarded! Being goth has nothing to do with black boots, black nail polish or black eyeliner! Real goths LAUGH at posers that think that! Your article is ridiculously hilarious!

1 Ok first of all, you are all wrong! Goth is an attitude more then a dressing style. Secondly, punk is different from goth and isn't a gothic style it's a punk style and there are a million goth styles because everyone is there own! Oh, and you don't need a pair of boots - I've been "goth" myself for abour 4 years and I just got my second pair of boots and my first ones I only wore about 20 times and these ones I've worn about six. and you don't need to dye your hair most of the time, it's all up to you. This article really has made me very angry at the amount of idiots out there.

1 Acidalayde and GenericName are right about some things like there and 100's of types of goths. Like I'm a new age vampire goth! We listen to Black Tape For a Blue Girl and Android Lust (and all the other gothic groups too). We wear black and red and dark purple, read just horror, watch just horror, don't use a lot of light - more candles (well that one goes for all the goths). We wear medieval clohting and Emily the Strange stuff and well... just BLACK! We buy our stuff from Hot Topic and off the internet.

Gothic Style - Hot or Not?

  • Yeah, goth style is super cool.
  • I'm not into it but some of friends are.
  • No way! Goth style is no good.
  • I still don't really get the goth thing.

Goodness... I see where your mother is coming from: if you eat too much, no matter how healthy the food is, and don't work off the calories, you're going to gain weight. But she's being very obsessive and dramatic about it. There is nothing wrong with eating pizza or a cookie every now and then, and there's nothing wrong with relaxing from time to time either. As long as you aren't constantly eating junk and not burning the calories, then you do not have a problem. Eating unhealthy things every now and then does not make you fat. EATING every now and then does not make you fat. Try explaining this to her, calmly and patiently. Tell her that you don't want to be forced to do all of this exercising - being forced to exercise makes it a lot less interesting. Do not take "This is for your own good" for an answer; if you do not want to do it, it is NOT for your good. (This, of course, would be a different story if you were actually fat.) ALSO tell her that exercising too much and not satiating your cravings is JUST AS UNHEALTHY AS BEING FAT IS. If you were to not eat healthful meals and not snack every now and then, no matter how healthy or unhealthy the food is, plus exercise so frequently, you would not be healthy.  Eating is good for you, even if the food isn't. Eating too little and eating too much is not healthy. Exercise is good for you. Not exercising enough and exercising too much is not good for you. If you talking to her doesn't help, try telling another adult how you feel, and maybe they can help get it through to her. Regardless of what happens, take care of yourself. Moderate how much you eat, but don't limit yourself to less than you feel you need. Exercise, but don't do something you don't want to; working out should be fun. Good luck with everything. I'm really sorry that she makes you feel so badly about this.

I'm perfectly happy with myself. I'm around 5'6" and somewhere between 140-150 pounds, and I don't feel fat. But my mom is constantly telling me that I am, or, at least, that I'm going to be. She forces me to go to exercise classes because I don't like many sports, tries making me go on diets, but I don't want to. She tells me that if I continue the way I am, having an extra cookie once in a while and only eating cereal for breakfast, that I'll end up fat, and she makes sure to emphasize how horrible that is for a person to live with. She rolls her eyes and sighs whenever she sees me getting a snack, and just in general makes me feel awful for eating the things I like and for relaxing. I've told her that I don't want to do these things and that she makes me feel bad when she says things like that, but she swears it's for my own good and that I should never want to be fat, that it ruins people's lives. How should I deal with this?

I know I need to tell her as I don t like keeping secrets from her. I know this was a bit ago, but I truly hope that you were able to be open with your mother. If you feel as if they won't get mad at you, then chances are that your guardian will not. Honesty is the best policy, and if you feel guilt keeping a secret, then it is one you probably shouldn't be keeping.

I agree with @rainbowpoptart. You really shouldn't worry about relationships that much given your age. I promise, they're better things to worry about than boys and more secure romances occur later on in life anyways. But, given the situation, you shouldn't worry about either. The boy is unfaithful and so is your friend. If your best friend really valued your friendship, she would not have put it in a position that could end it. Don't waste your time on those who will not put you first just as you do for them; better people will come into your life and they are the ones who you should really worry about.
