unless you have/have had/know someone with with and eating disorder, you would not know that it is short for bulimia.

contrary to what the news feeds controversy-hungry-people it is NOT to make bulimia sound like a friendly bff or anything, just a short version of the word, pretty much only used on the internet, just like any acronym used on msn - just a shorter type

A hot hot girl who tends to keep secrets from others even when they think they know everything about her. Shes in love with emo boys, nutella, and hellokitty, and you will never find a Mia alone. Shes crazy and loud and loves to be around friends. You will be in love with a Mia when you meet her.
"That girl has the coolest hair. Shes so Mia."
