    I am not saying only girls have them, I know one guy in my class was absolutely in love with Jennifer Lawrence, but girls certainly seem far more easily attached and obsessed with their favourite celebrities than boys. Just look at 'directioners', 'beliebers', 'cumber*****es' and all of the other fanbases which are predominantly female, and even some of the posters on here who border on stalkerish.

    My question is this: is there some personality trait more common among girls that means they become more easily and more strongly attached to objects or people, and if yes, what is it?

    As a bonus, here is a hilarious youtube video:

    No evidence to back it up, but perhaps girls focus more on personality than simply looks, and because of that personality cults emerge more readily which is an essential component of crazy fan mentality.

    For sure, you never see a guy crying and eating ice cream on the sofa while watching a Romcom because his girlfriend dumped him.

    Interesting because the term that keeps cropping up is 'status'. Do you all think this is socially instilled, and that girls are brought up on Disney fairy tale princes and aim for the top, or is it a biological desire for finding the best option, or something else entirely?

    I have no idea. I do this myself as well? Maybe it's because these celebrities are dream guys/girls?
