alright..i dont consider myself "gothic" but i love black..always have. I don't go to hottopic and spend $60 for a pair of pants and another$40 for a shirt with a pentagram on it or anything..i wear normal clothes just most of which happen to be black.i am NOT depressed/sad/emo in any way. im probabaly the happiest person you will ever meet.I have all sorts of friends at school..not just one group.I wouldnt consider myself popular but im the person that everyone refers to as "oh shes the really nice girl". I'm not a satanist. I'm christian.I would never cut/hurt myself for attention.Im very outgoing/easy to get along with.I have a wonderful boyfriend and a great dad.I have plenty of money. I take care of myself(eating healthy,working out) So heres my problem. Since I have all sorts of friends..some of them are "gothic"..but lately they have basically turned EMO.it's not even funny.they act all depressed and cut themselves(they all have great lives by the way..its an act) and their"cool" thing to do now is wear all black make up and dress extra"freaky" and always have some sort of skull/spider web accesory on and its just embarassing being seen with them.i don't really care what people think of me but im not like them.so if im seen with them then everyone that doesnt know me assumes that im an emo depressed goth thats a satanist.i asked one of my friends why she turned emo all of a sudden and her reply was"im emo at heart..im just stuck in this fake body" and i was thinking "what the fuck"..ive built relationships with this certain group of people all through highschool..and i dont want to lose them becuase they are being stupid and acting like something they arent.i have had people come up to me at bakers square(restaraunt) when we took my friend out for her birthday and they all got up to go to the bathorom and i stayed at the table to wait for our food..well sure enough we had a new waitress and she asked the manager where the food went and he replied"thats the table with the little emo goth girl at it" he was referring to ME!!!!..
i honestly dont know what to do anymore..they dont look like they'll be quiting their little act anytime soon
