When can I start calling myself goth?

I started listening to goth rock a few weeks ago when a friend I made at college played it for me. So far I really like a lot of the music I’ve checked out.

I’ve also begun looking into the history of the goth subculture, how it originated, the clubs, lifestyle, etc. Although I’m definitely going to do some more in depth research in the future.

I’m still developing my style, I wouldn’t say it’s a goth style per se but it’s definitely a darker aesthetic.

Here’s the music I’ve listened to so far: Alien Sex Fiend Fields of the Nephilim Clan of Xymox Skinny Puppy Sisters of Mercy Sopor Aeternus Depeche Mode (not sure if Depeche Mode counts)

So is it too early to call myself goth?
