Is there anything like being a "loner lolita"?

Here are some questions:

>Do you consider yourself a loner lolita?
>Did you got the chance to go to a meet in the past or join a comm?

Of course there is.
I consider myself a loner lolita, I've met the local girls in my community and been to a couple of meets but they're all fairly bitchy and I don't want to deal with their drama.

You don't need a comm to wear what you want anon.

I'm a loner lolita. I was in my comm, went to a few meets and then stopped attending. I know hobby groups are a thing, but lolita comms always seem so forced, mostly because half the reason girls are in them is so they don't feel self conscious in public, which isn't something I worry about so I don't need it.

Yup, of course!

I'm definitely a loner lolita. I have had chance to go to local meet ups but just decided against it.

I just hang out with my boyfriend and my family most of the time, anyway. I'm lame, lol

This.

I feel confident on my own wearing lolita. I dont need a group to feel confident. Plus, its just clothes to me so i want no attention and groups attracted a lot of unwanted attention

I'm a loner.

There are no comms in my city, despite it being medium sized and growing quickly.

There are some comms that are like two hours away, but it's not worth it for me to travel, especially when I'm introverted. I'd like to be friends with someone in the fashion, but I'm ok being alone.

I'm a loner lolita. I don't really want to be, but the local comm is badly organized and seldom has meets that interest me. You can only go to a kareoke bar so many times before it gets old.

Can guys be loner lolita?

I'm considering becoming a lone lolita. I feel the only thing I have in common with my comm is the clothes. Meets are usually disorganized and no one ever gets there on time, leaving me to wait around alone. It feels so forced just to try to make "friends"

>Do you consider yourself a loner lolita?
Yeah, I'm not part of a comm nor do I have any interest in joining. My city does have a comm, but it's not very good and the next comm that's closest is in NY and I hear they're a bit hard to stand so...I'm happy right here where I am.

>Did you got the chance to go to a meet in the past or join a comm?
I did get the chance for both of them, but I can't recall why I didn't do it... I might have been shy and sure as hell didn't know how the comms were back then

Maybe we are the same person, haha.

I don't mind being a "lone" lolita in the least. I think I'd actually feel weirder going out with a big group of frill-clad girls than I do going out with just my bf in his normal clothes.

I'm still a lone lolita, also not going out that much because social inept and dressing casual because i have few pieces. I just hope soon i can create a local comm with another lolita and wearing more elaborate coords too.

I've been a lone Lolita from the start, joined my area's comm but still consider myself a lone loli.

When you go out together as a huge bunch of Lolita it's a very different feeling. So I encourage lone lolis to hang out with a comm once or twice just for experience. You can just be a drifter and not get involved in any drama.

Especially when strangers come up and ask what you're wearing. I end up being the person who does the explanation, probably because I'm used to it as a lone loli but the girls who only wear loli as a comm are either too shy or insistent that the person is trying to be rude.

Honestly I used to just heck with it and wear Lolita anywhere, but truthfully I haven't worn loli in a long time because I haven't been going out at all. I start school this fall, and I dint know if I want to wear Lolita to school yet.

>Do you consider yourself a loner lolita?
Yes. The only other lolita I know personally isn't someone I wish to hang around currently for multiple reason.

>Did you got the chance to go to a meet in the past or join a comm?
I haven't yet. The closest comm is about 2 hours away and I don't really want to drive that far. I've checked their pages and they're usually dead anyway. I've thought about starting one in my city since I know there are other lolitas in my city, or near by, but I know I don't have the knowledge, or the skills.

I did have a chance to meet my comm and spent about a year trying to get to know them. I even formed some really great friendship with girls I thought were 'different' than the others as far as..group mentality? Clique mentality? Not sure what to call it. Either way, in the end I got burned. Bad. And now I am glad I am on my own and wear what I want, not worrying about themes of meets, or what my 'friends' are wearing. I agree with the other anons 30000% about the forced thing. Most of the girls are there because they just can't muster the courage to wear lolita alone and that just destroys the 'I wear lolita for me and no one else' train of thought for me.
And last but definitely not least, my local comm seems to have an unnatural amount of know it all itas, lol.

>Do you consider yourself a loner lolita?
Used to (now it's different only because I barely pass as lolita). But I know/never knew of any other lolitas in my area and my friends aren't into any sort of j-fashion.
>Did you got the chance to go to a meet in the past or join a comm?
I did, but I wasn't very into it. I had nothing in common with any of the girls. They were very much into Japan, anime, vidya, Disney and other things they all had in common, and my interests, even where Japan was concerned, were not the same. I didn't have anything to talk to them about.

I'm ok with it now, and I'm actually less and less into lolita, and more otome/himekaji/very casual styles. I think I'd get back into it if I had friends to share it with. It makes me a little sad to be so disconnected from people who have the same aesthetic taste.

>Do you consider yourself a loner lolita?
When the closest comm is two hours away, yeah, you kinda end up being a loner.

>Did you got the chance to go to a meet in the past or join a comm?
Yeah, I'm part of the comm two hours away, but I go to maybe one meetup a year. Two tops. I never have a chance to wear lolita and I don't want to get attention from people on campus so I don't wear it to classes. I might start though because otherwise I just have an expensive wardrobe rotting in my closet.
