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.

EndlessDream is right. Skipping breakfast and lunch can result in stomach ulcers and sudden weight gain (had personal experience...), ESPECIALLY skipping breakfast! You have to incorporate exercise in your daily routine. Stomach and body fat is mostly caused by lack of exercise, and maybe that means you need to do toning exercises. Try doing simple exercise videos like the 3-mile powerwalk on YouTube (trust me, I sweat like crazy when I do those workouts). Anything that gets you sweating, is the kind of exercise you need to do.  I hated working out when I first started my weight loss journey too. I would always start wheezing every time I started working out. But after pushing through everyday, I think working out is one of the best stress busters I've ever had!  If you want to lower your appetite though, I suggest eating a full lunch and breakfast and skipping your dinner. If you can't skip dinner, then at least try aiming for an early dinner, around 5:30 or 6:00. Your body needs time to digest at least 4 hours before you sleep. I started gaining weight around puberty when I was 12, it could be the same for you too.  But honestly, there's nothing wrong with having consciousness about your weight. Now starving yourself and dieting is BAD, but there's nothing wrong with changing your lifestyle in order to be fit. It's a good thing that kids start caring about their health, and the earlier you start, the better off you are.

You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.
