under_the_pressure Posted November 16, 2004 Share Posted November 16, 2004 I want to thank you in advance for taking time to read this, I need all the help I can get. Next weekend, I get $2,000 to go shopping. Most girls my age, would be excited right? Well, the man taking me is like my Grandpa and he has the money to take me so it's pocket change to him. My normal outfit's consist of jeans, black tshirt, and my converse shoes. That's me. He and my Mom always say, they want to 'doll me up.' As we know, there are labels in this words. Such as; goth, punk, prep, skater...etc I don't pay attention to that labels, but some do. I don't mind being 'dolled up' but, it's not like I would want to be that way all the time. I have never been a girly girl. I was always 'tomboy' or hanging with the guys. But, a few reasons I don't know what to actually shop for when I go is because Mom wants me to be this 'girly girl' when that isn't who I am, and that's what Grandpa wants, and he is paying for my clothes. And, there are times I want to dress like an actual girl but other times no. It all goes back to finding myself. It isn't about my clothes or what I buy. I just don't know who I am. This is probably the most confusing post ever, and I apologize. I know that if I dress how I usually do which is jeans, tshirts then: I'll be comfortable. But guys (yes, I know...guys.) aren't attracted to that. They probably want girls wearing shirts that show cleavage and pants skin tight. I'm just really confused, right now. Hmm, I don't know what else to add right now. I was just wondering if anyone else has ever felt the same way, or if anyone thinks they could give me advice. I guess I can always add to it. I just don't know what else to say for right now. Thanks for reading though, if you made it this far. I'm just really confused with...myself right now. And I'm put *under the pressure* of being someone who I'm not sure I want to be. Thanks for the replies in advance. under* Quote Link to comment
