A female who is obsessed with a particular actor, musician or celebrity in an unhealthy way.

Fangirls generally range from age 10-15 but are known to exceed range but rarely surpass teenage years.

Most fangirls target boy bands, specifically Disney manufactured and those in their teens/early 20's.

They generally give the band a bad reputation, and instead of being taken seriously, they are usually labeled as a preteen band that only is as successful as they are because of the fans, though not always entirely true.

Most also have crushes on people who are very much older than them, sometimes as much as twice their age.

Fangirls can be a blessing as well as a curse to a band, actor, athlete or celebrity. They're known for their wild behavior and extreme dedication to said target.

Fangirls fall into one of 2 categories upon meeting or seeing said celebrity in person; weepers or screamers. Weepers generally tend to cry and weep in the form of joy where as screamers tend to scream and jump around in the form of excitedness.

Most fangirls will fall out of their phase of obsession within 1-3 years or when they lay eyes on a new band.

Some fangirls believe that once bands become less popular, they will have a better chance to meet them and become romantically involved with their chosen target or form a friendship with chosen band, actor or celebrity. This will lead some girls to actually discourage new fans and some will go as far to create new accounts on said website and pretend to be a hater. Many girls also create poser accounts and pretend to be said celebrity rather for entertainment and out of obsession or to pretend their fantasy has came true.



Fangirls are also notorious for outrageous behavior such as attacks on people who share the common interest for the chosen obsession, hating on past known girlfriends/boyfriends, writing extremely imaginative fanficts(most include kissing, said celebrity saving author, typical romance plots and in some older fans, sex), believing the celebrity is writing songs about them, assuming that once they pay 600$ for a front row ticket to a concert and backstage pass the celebrity will lay eyes on them and fall madly in love and marry them, believing their only true purpose is to be with said celebrity, and of course stalking behavior.

Because of vague descriptions often given by celebrities of their ideal girl/boy, most fangirls match this therefore believing further more they are the true soulmate of said celebrity, leading to further obsession.

In rare cases, fangirls are so obsessed that they believe their life is worthless if they cannot be with said celebrity.

There are many rumored stories of fans of bands such as Tokio Hotel who fall madly in love with specific band members and when coming to the conclusion they would never be with them romantically, they believe life is worthless and attempt to take their own life.
There has never been any verified articles on this story, but many fans believe if the suicide did take place, it was drawn up that the suicide was due to a love for Tokio Hotel instead of looking into deeper problems to cause a depression by parents in an attempt to cover neglectful treatment.

Highly noted fangirl case involves a 12 year old girl who imitated an anti-suicide music video from band Tokio Hotel when taking her own life by jumping off a 10 story building. Many people argue that this was not the case of a severe fangirl but a depression and typical actions of an emo trend follower.

Normal: "Yeah I like the Jonas Brothers. I am going to a concert of theirs this summer, can't wait!"
****Generally has a few posters of band/individual desired as well as others in addition, usually from magazines.

Fangirl: *normal girl 1:* My favorite Jonas brothers is Joe! He's so cute! :D

*Fangirl 1*: BACK OFF BITCH JOE IS MINE!!!!!

*Fangirl 2*:NO HE IS MINE! WE'RE GOING TO GET MARRIED AND I AM GOING TO HAVE HIS BABIES! QUIT DREAMING!!11

It's a different type of species. They spend most of their time on the computer, tweeting to famous boy bands, multiple times, asking for a follow. Sometimes these wild creatures are seen out in the wild life, but watch out, they don't know what socializing is. Don't go near this species if you have similar hair or clothing styles to boy-bands or are simple "ratchet."
(on twitter)

Fangirl 1: *tweeting* OMG OMG @harrystyles iloveyousomuch #followback be my baby daddy!!!
Fangirl 2: *replies to this tweet* (cough cough) RATCHET A** WH*RE.
~~~~~~~~
(in real life)

Fangirl: OMG LOOK HOW RATCHET THAT TWIG IS, YOU CAN SEE THE SPACE BETWEEN HER THIGHS MY GOD WHAT IS THIS HELL??!?!?! WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?!?!?!?! ELEANOR?!?!?!

Typically a teenage girl with an obsession towards something: a show, movie, book, person, etc. There are three types of these fan girls:

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.
Normal fan girl: "My favorite show is NCIS. I really like it. What's yours?"

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 ^_^"

A teenage girl who over-obsesses over Anime, or somebody famous. Thinks they are married to them. Has a minimum of 10 posters.
Normal girl: Hey, did you hear? Johnny Depp is signing autographs in London tomorrow? He's so hot, i might go.

Fangirl: LYK, OMIGOD! I LUV BILL KAULITZ! HE'S MY HUSBAND, AND HE'S GONNA HAVE MY BABIES! I WISH HE KNEW HOW MUCH I LOVED HIM! DID YA KNOW, I HAVE 7400 POSTERS OF HIM! LYK, OMG!

Normal girl: Umm, you don't even know Johnny Depp. Besides, he's taken, and he's too old for you. Stop fantasizing on what your never gonna get.

Fangirl: OH MY GOD, I CANT BELIEVE U JUST SAID THAT! I KNOW WE'RE GONNA GET MARRIED, I CAN SEE IT! WE'RE GONNA LIVE IN A BIG MANSION AND HAVE 24 KIDS, AND YOU'RE JUST JEALOUS!

Normal girl: Okay then, well...see you there... -signs out and shoots self-

A fangirl is mostly described as a woman between the ages of 14-17 with an overobsession for something that is not real, is real (but is unlikely possible to hook up with him), or maybe even both things of the matter. Most of them screams words such as "OMG, HE IS SO HOT" or "HE IS SUPER CUTE BEYOND BELIEF! MARRY ME BABY!"

Not all fangirls are as awful as the ones of the rabid fangirl. Some fangirls can be actually be QUITE smart and cute, and sometimes can even control their extreme OBSESSION for the person of their affection. Most of the times, I am alright with these kind of fangirls.

Also, rabid fangirls tend to also hate the person that is around the person they obsess over.
A fangirl spots Winry (of FMA) trying to fix Edward's (also from FMA) automail:

Fangirl: Ah, that's so cute! <3 You to keep working!
Ed: Oo;
Winry: Okay... *looks ver confused*

On the contrary, RABID FANGIRLS:

Rabid fangirl: GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!! YOU STUPID BICH!!! SLUT GET AWAY FRUM MY MAN!!! EDO IS MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MOVE IT!!!!11111
