    I would like to know your opinions and does it change the way you see them and want a relationship with them? And don't be like oh "just love yourself" because I know you mean well but it is bad advice in my opinion. I'm not anorexic but I'm not the perfect slim either, I'm kinda in between, I have average breasts and bum but does being this slim change anything?

    Being super slim to the point where your ribs are showing is just unattractive. Slim is fine.

    You're obviously overthinking. Stop doing stuff to impress boys and instead work on yourself for yourself.

    Slim is fine. Lots of guys like slim.

    Anorexic? Nah, not unless they are currently seeking medical advice to fix it

    Listen, I care about a girl's face and her as an individual, I can't say well yes I want all slim women or I don't want any because I'll want some, but not all.

    I'm not keen on girls that look breakable. You know when they're bare skinny and it looks like you could snap them in half with minimal effort. Otherwise w/e, generally tend to prefer girls that are less thicc. Being anorexic is very different to just being skinny tho fam

    Anorexic is a serious mental illness. It is not the same as being 'slim'.

    I'm not a boy but I'm answering anyway; anorexia is a disease, not a body type. There are anorexics that are overweight, there are muscular anorexics, there are bony anorexics, and everything in between. Untreated, anorexia kills. Just like any psychiatric illness, it can affect relationships quite profoundly.

    There's varying amounts of research and the only factors that scientists agree affect attractiveness are symmetry and a generally 'average' face. Most other things are down to individual experiences and preferences.

    I'm tiny and people don't let me forget that, but I've never been told it makes me really unattractive. Whether or not people think that is another thing :lol:

      IIRC, research shows that men prefer women to be a bit less thin than the average woman wants to be.

      also different boys like different things, and if people don't want to be with you don't waste your time on them. Maybe you don't need to 'love yourself', but having some positive indifference about your body is good. Your body is nice, your body is fine, your body is doing it's job in keeping you alive. Being the 'perfect slim' does not matter.
