Normal fan girl:
Perfectly normal girl, may even be pretty. Has an obsession, but keeps it to herself. Might read fanfiction, have a blog dedicated, several merchandise related to this obsession. Safe to approach.
Crazy fan girl:
Relatively normal girl, sometimes pretty. Really enjoys her obsession. May talk about it every once and a while. Reads fanfiction daily, and writes it. Dedicates 1-2 hours of her life to this obsession. Owns several pieces of merchandise. Cosplays every once and a while. Approach with caution.
Completely insane fan girl:
Needs to go to a mental facility, usually does not care about beauty in any way. Rarely pretty. Loves her obsession (typically anime) more than anything in the world. If you took away her internet access, she would retreat to her army of merchandise related to her obsession. But, after a few hours, would die of lack of fanfiction. Cosplays almost every weekend. Dedicates 6-7 hours of her life to her obsession. Spends the rest of it thinking/dreaming about it. If you encounter this type of fan girl, call the police immediately. DO NOT APPROACH.
Crazy fan girl: "OMG I love Harry Potter so much. My favorite character is Draco. I know he's a bad boy, but I can't help but love him. *SQUEE*"
Completely insane fan girl: "Hetalia is like the greatest thing ever. Look, I've got my Italia shirt on. I'll wear my bracelet and headband tomorrow, and I'll even bring in my stuffed Chibitalia collection to show you! It's the greatest show in the world. I stay up every night and just watch the episodes over and over and over again. Read all my fanfics. I've written over 2000! OMG *SQUEEEEE* Sorry, I just got some major feels. I ship so many different characters and, and *SQUEEEEEE* just thinking about them makes me want to write more fanfics. Let's be BFFs and talk about Hetalia all day long ^_^"

2. A general term for a female fan of something.
A fangirl is a (female) fan of a character from a movie, anime, video game, etc. or a real life actor or singer. Usually they have an obsession with their "idol" and do various activities to show their love for the said idol. Such activities include ranting about them, making shrines or fanlistings, creating graphics (wallpapers, layouts, etc) that feature the "idol", writing fanfics and making fanart. Some also make plushies or collect posters and other merchandise of their beloved idol.
Usually, members of this label are seen as 1) insane; 2) idiotic; or 3) scary.
However, not all fangirls are like this. Quite a few of them are just an average fan of something, and just call themselves such. But, there are three types of commonly seen fangirls:
1) BELOW AVERAGE FANGIRL
This fangirl is the least likely to cause chaos or mayhem, insult or annoy someone else who is not a fangirl (or boy, if they happen to be male). They admit that they have a slight obsession for something/one, and are mature about it. While they might use smilies (XD, XP, ^_^) and occasionally rant, they try not to go overboard about it.
2. AVERAGE FANGIRL
This fangirl is the most commonly seen fangirl across the Internet, and are generally harmless. They are prone to making shrines, annoying people with their "fantasies" of meeting or marrying their idol, bad grammar, and just being immature about the object of their obsession/affection. Many of these also write fanfics, causing such places as fanfiction.net to be cluttered with stories that could use a good editing and rewriting all together. Another common trait about them is their tendency to rant, be easily insulted, and excessively "glomp", squeal and use chat speak in places where it is not appropriate.
3. ABOVE AVERAGE FANGIRL
This fangirl is above the previous fangirl, and has thus let her obsession go beyond healthy levels. They tend to rant a lot more than other fangirls, and are more easily to insult or anger if you tell them that their "idol" is just a two-dimensional character, or someone whom they will most likely never meet. Their fantasies go beyond the fantasies of the "average" fangirl, along with all of their other tendencies. These are the fangirls most dislike and tend to stay away from due to their ability to easily annoy others, and their high levels of immaturity.
Average Fangirl: "I <3 Jack Sparrow! *glomps him* He's so awesome! OMG, you all should like him too! XD"
Above Average Fangirl: "I luv Jack Sparrow sooooo much! We r going 2 get married! I LUV HIM SOOOO MUCH! Stay away! He is mine!"
usually a hard core fan of a particular character or ship which they will usually refer to as their OTP or 'one true pairing';
often found on blogs, squeeing over canon relationships, non-canon relationships, UST, or even AU plots or crack dealing with their fandom;
often found reading or writing fanfic;
can be supporters of het pairings, slash pairings, femslash pairings, or OT3s;
often spend time collecting pictures and making fanart;
often are also involved in vidding or making fan music videos (see also fanvid, vid).
I'm so excited for the convention! It's going to be a whole room full of fangirls on overdrive.
"OMG seriously, who needs alternative energy? Just hook up A/R fangirls to some kind of battery and we can power the whole planet for as long as we get new A/R promo pics."
