Thread: Why?

  1. #1

    Unhappy Why?

    Why are most girls (in the U.S., anyway) anorexic now? I just found out my girlfriend is.

    I could be way off on this one, but last time I checked, I thought more girls in the US were obese, not anorexic.....

    Yes, you are way off. Less than 15% of girls in the US are obese. That doesn't mean most are anorexic, but the majority are just average. It sort of seems that a lot are anorexic though, because nobody notices the average ones. Just the obese or anorexic ones.

    It seems like every girl I try to hang out with has some sort of personal problem like this. I am seriously considering remaining single now for several years. Hopefully, the older they get, the more mature they are.

    You're right, I should probably have said overweight, but I stand by my statement. I'm sure there are more obese girls then there are anorexic girls in the US.

    It also depends on how you personally define obese. Typically a BMI of > 26 is considered overweight, > 30 is considered obese, and > 40 is considered Texan

    Have you tried to get her help? Is she anorexic, or bulimic? Theres a huge difference between the two. Sometimes you have to accept peoples flaws, I'm pretty sure you've got issues of your own she might not like either.

    Anorexic. And she wants to see a counselor.

    My point is this: why are so many (all?) girls that age (18-25) so messed up?

    Ignorant statement? Yes. Maybe you're the problem.

    Girlfriend? Obviously not a serious relationship

    Honestly no disrespect but, to find love one has to look deeper than what you see on the surface - qualities often come from within.

    If other peoples faults bother you then they're not the one for you.

    Regardless if she was/is nice and you get on then I'd take her problems and make it through together - support and accept each other - period.

    If you can't hack it then yep maybe stay single until you're mature enough to handle reality and adulthood

    Not saying we've broken up or anything. Just wondering what is happening to mess up so many girls that age? Thought someone here might have some insight - guess not. Thanks for weighing in, though. I appreciate it.

    If she wants to see a counselor, support her in any way you can. That is definitely the best route here.

    To me this goes back to everyone needing to find a crutch to lean on and blame all their own vanity driven problems.

    That's true. Unfortunately, by the time they're mature, they're old.

    No, don't think so. Because most guys I talk to have noticed this as well. It's almost as if girls are trying too hard to be something, or someone, that they are not. The question is: why do they think they have to be that way?

    Again, I appreciate all the advice.

    Indeed, the intensely soul-destroying picture painted by the media of the perfect woman is stick thin. Almost emaciated yet perfectly groomed, and is completely unattainable without some kind of eating disorder or pots of money for personal trainers/surgery!

    Not surprising that some women take this striving for impossible perfection too far.

    That's bullcrap

    Typically girls are mature at an earlier age than guys. Of course there are exceptions.

    In my opinion being anorexic doesn't have anything to do with maturity, but more with how emotional a girl is. And girls are typically just a lot more emotional than guys. Even though that'll change a bit as they get older, I don't think that has a lot to do with maturity.

    Personally I'm a lot more into the ladies who are a bit more laid back. It's no problem if they have their emotional things but I'd much rather go out with someone who just doesn't care the public opinion than someone who's constantly worried about her looks. Of course it's important that she takes care of herself, but I definitely wouldn't be able to live with someone who's anorexic (not because of the looks, but because of the personality).

    Ah ha! That's what I've been trying to say. And I don't mean to sound like an ugly person (I do have my problems), but I'm in no position (and at this point in my life, don't really want to be) to help someone overcome their own emotional issues.

    Well that's not really the reason I tried to say. I personally wouldn't mind helping someone overcome their own emotional issues - afterall that's involved with pretty much any serious relationship. But what I meant to say is that I definitely wouldn't be into someone with anorexia - because of her personality (e.g. caring so much about the public opinion that she'd actually hurt herself in order to try and live up to the public "standards")

    From what you just said, I think you are probably not ready for a serious relationship at this point. Helping someone overcome their own emotional problems is involved with pretty much any serious relationship - doesn't necessarily need to be anorexia of course.

    And that's probably true, too. I am a very independent, stubborn person anyway.
