From the creator of the "What is Goth" website and online shop.
Thank you for your helpful clues! And yes, I checked your website, I found it informative. :)
You’re welcome. Happy to help. Glad that you found the website informative.
Good morning. I've gotten pretty interested into the Gothic culture recently, finding it fascinating and intriguing at the same time, with its many branches and diverse subcultures, and it's singular atmosphere. I sometimes consider becoming a part of a goth community. But I still ask myself this question: how can I know if "goth is made for me", if I may say so? With the hope that you can help me with this (I admit, complicated) question, thank you very much. Regards!
I guess the question you have to ask yourself is – do I find beauty in things others consider dark? Do you like dark sounding music for example? Have you always liked these things and will you always like them? What is it that interests you about the Goth culture? Goth wasn’t something I questioned whether or not I was a part of when I first discovered it. It was more like – I had finally found what I already was – I just didn’t know that there was a whole culture of other people that liked similar things.
