I've had an eating disorder, actually, but I'd try and get them proper help. The thing is, most EDs don't ever fully dissappear, they're always a part of you. I don't even count calories but I still limit what I eat so that I don't breach 120 lbs. that's the problem.

If it were a case of drinking excessive amounts of tea, we'd get on like a house on fire.

I've done it. I dated a girl for over a year in high school who exhibited anorexic tendencies. Looking back, the fact that I didn't notice and didn't take action is embarrassing. But she found a solution that worked for her. It seems like she's been healthy since graduation. We had a hell of a falling out, but she is healthy today and I am thankful for that. She's a great girl, and it's nice to see she seems to be doing well these days.

Well simple, if said person he or she can only eat certain food, better get off my ass and buy those five things or 2 things or it could not even be from this planet but better find a way to get those types of foods breakfast lunch and dinner at all cost. As to if i would date a girl with this? why is that even a question honestly. so simple , Lol im not gonna be like Nawh this aint gonna work out you wont eat what i want you to eat, it shouldn't matter to most people what disorder ya got,

1. Would you feel awkward going to each other family to dine during a cookout, holiday events, etc to find out there is one thing he or she can eat?
Nope, if annyone there got problems with that well shit, say it to me strait.

2. Would you feel awkward to go out to eat as a date?
No dates are mainly talking annyways, have fun.. ffs lol.

shit if i had guests over i would do the same thing and just get what they can eat, if they even want to.
Selective eating, obviously id only serve what you can stomach.
You always have the option to just pass on the food
blahblahblah i said enough lol

Reminds me of an article that caused a media uproar a couple of months(?) ago.

http://www.returnofkings.com/21313/5-reasons-to-date-a-girl-with-an-eating-disorder

It would definitely save me money, but it's not really a prerequisite. It'd save me the stress of having to wait for my partner to finish her meal. I don't eat too much myself either, and I finish pretty quick too.

I sometimes look in my cabinet at the hordes of different tea's I've collected and wonder if I have a problem. There's too many interesting combinations of flavors out there.

I wouldn't since I feel like that's all we would talk about and I would feel bad.

I mean it could happen but nah.

I am dating someone with Selective Eating Disorder. Luckily, it's things that are easily found like pizza, fries, chicken. He's picky within his limits. It's about texture and smell and it can't be complicated. He likes simple foods.

It does bother me, but I feel like SED is more of a physical thing than mental. An eating disorder like anorexia or bulimia is kind of another matter. As someone who has ED NOS (eating disorder that doesn't fit exactly into labeled eating disorders like anorexia), I can see the difference.

I would date someone with an ED as long as they're making an effort to change. Also, if I've been with them for a long time and love them very much. Those are the two situations where I would, probably.

I don't think I'd have an issue with SED since it doesn't seem rooted in the same kind of (for lack a better word) chaos that you would find with bulimia and anorexia.

Unless an individual was actively working on recovery I would not attempt a relationship with someone suffering from anorexia or bulimia. Even then it'd be iffy and depend on where they were at. In all honesty, someone with bulimia or anorexia does not have the capacity to be in a healthy relationship period. Bulimia and anorexia are like an addiction and addicts have very little room in their life for anything but their addiction. Likewise, anorexics and bulimics have very little room in their life for anything but their eating disorder.

When it comes to dating someone its about liking them for whats inside and the person they are. If someone had an eating disorder and I loved them or really liked them then the disorder means nothing. Your dating them not the disorder. And you shouldn't feel awkward at all because you love them and as long as they are happy then its all good.

Also if for some reason that disorder is caused by a bigger problem, be there for them. Maybe try to help them and try to make them happy.

Thats my take on the question.
