    I identify comfortably

    as goth. Yup. Nearly 22 and it is who I am! I love the fashion because it's so edgy. It makes me unique where I live and I think it really reflects my inner presence. I'm a happy person, but I love dark things, I am a night owl, I love getting scared and going on ghost hunts, I...

    So, I wear a lot of neo-victorian clothes (suits and ruffles, and sometimes skirts if I feel like crossdressing), but sometimes I just wear "normal" stuff, I listen to a lot of goth music (ie. Faith and the Muse, Bauhaus, Joy Division, etc.), but not all the music I listen to is...

    Goth Since 1981 And Proud To Welcome You All!

    It really saddens me when I read the stories written by members of this group who are under 35... you have no concept of what it is all about... we were lost children!... it was a time when the cold war raged and the threat of nuclear annihilation was palpable!... we were told...

    Finally Comfortable With Me

    I always knew i was different form others. The things i liked were way different from what other little girls my age liked. But since i was being raised in a Catholic home and forced to go to Catholic school I had to keep who I really was to myself. I was born two days before...

    Goth Gene?

    I am one of the hardcore believers. I believe that one is born Goth and no one can change it even if they have to change their appearance to get a high-paying job. I have met too many people who are innately Goth. It's like I have Goth-dar and can spot them a mile away even if...

    Accepting Me

    Whenever I start to talk with a potential boyfriend I am always reluctant to talk about my Goth side. Reason being, I once was on a dating site and I was talking to this awesome guy. We were connecting easy, until he started to put two and two together about me, and well he...

    I identify as Goth, but I'm a tad scared to

    show it in real life. As a Christian Goth, it's been difficult to establish myself since my parents are very traditional. I haven't had as much freedom as I'd like with my wardrobe/makeup for fear of their judgement...I suppose that's why I tend to prefer the more modest...

    The Original Class

    Hmm... I almost didn't join this group and it took me so long to consider it... the reason why is because I was labeled as goth in my youth (and a little in my adult life too) and it was never something that I assumed to be. Not that being goth is wrong in any way! I found it...

    When I was little, I used to love Barbie

    and Bratz and anything pink, and I listened to pop music and rap all the time. Over the past five years, I've been changing. It started when I first found the band Paramore, that was the band that led me away from pop and rap. I started listening to slightly heavier stuff, and...

    Darkness Comforts Me

    Childe of the Dark who walks in the Light. The night is my shelter and its minions my kin. Sweet sin of Vanity blossoms in my bosom. I am captive under leather and bone. My eyes are lined with dark wisdom and bleeding hearts are my home. TRW 16 September 2008

    I'm not goth, but I am considering going goth clubing in a week. I would never do this regularly, but my life has recently become a **** show. So any suggestions?

    Always Pretty Much Have Been...

    Even when I was really young I was into different things, darker things and what-not. I started off probably being an annoying pseudo goth or whatever, but now I'm just me. I fit into the 'goth' subculture. I don't really care if people say, "goth is dead" because it's not a...
