Dating with an eating disorder: being honest helped me to find my perfect match
Dating with an eating disorder: being honest worked for me | Metro News
No one from my past relationships had made a point to ask me this question. Instead, I always had to force the information about how my eating disorder might show up in our relationship on these people. And it was more important than most people realize. In a study that looked at how women with anorexia nervosa experience intimacy in their romantic relationships, these women pointed to their partners understanding their eating disorders as a significant factor in feeling emotional closeness. When it comes to body image among people with eating disorders, these issues can run deep. This is because people with eating disorders, particularly those who are women, are more likely than others to experience negative body image.

Dating is hard. Dating with an eating disorder? Thankfully, I am in a better place. I can eat in front of people again, eat more regularly and can even go out to eat on the weekends.
I had boyfriends when I had anorexia. Someone who ate six hundred calories all day before going out gets wasted on one cocktail. Sweet, right? I want you to read it anyway. You can eat without thinking about it.
