I've been struggling with an eating disorder for almost all my life (more than 8 years). There came a time in my life where I didn't eat anything expect water and a granola bar, but thats it. I was just skin and bones. Additionally, when I tasted food, I would binge. Resulting in me hating myself, and not eating for couple more days. It would become a nonstop cycle that quite frankly I was sick of it. Literally. Enough was enough. This past year, I was introduced to veganism. And I absolutely loved it! I've never felt as happy as I am now and as healthy. But there are times when I want to stop eating or to binge.
So my question is: would you knowingly date someone who has an eating disorder past or currently has one?
I won't lie, it would be a difficult thing to adjust to, but yes I would. I would not hold that against someone because eating disorders are something that is difficult for those who have them to handle.
If they were getting help for it, yes. I have an eating disorder myself, but I binge eat all day long. Luckily, I'm not a fucking cow because of it because I'm trying to fix it, but if you aren't trying to fix your problem, then no, I would not.
No, I would consider that to be a burden. It’s annoying when you’re dealing with an adult who can’t seem to get their sh*t together and insists on being a mess. A lot of adults like this will expect a romantic partner to come along and fix them, giving them free therapy and spending excessive amounts of time and energy trying to coach them back to normalcy. It’s annoying. I love to be helpful, but I can’t stand dealing with men that are emotionally dependent and mentally reliant on me to function; it’s exhausting! I’d rather have a relatively happy, healthy relationship that isn’t going to be tainted by drama.
