The Ideal Fangirl

Everyone has an obsession. Whether it be pizza, shopping, or that hot lead singer of your favorite band (I'm lucky enough to have all three to obsess over). My favorite obsession, however, is this young man right here:
This is Miles. I'm only slightly in love with him. It could be worse.

Definition of a fangirl: A rabid breed of human female who is obsessed with either a fictional character or an actor.
I think they forgot music artists/bands. Those are the best fangirls.

Anyways, there is nothing wrong with being a fangirl. We all have that disease slightly, whether it be obsessively watching youtube videos of the same band, having pictures of them on your phone, or even stalking their twitter in hopes that they post some lovely shirtless pictures of themselves (not that I do that or anything).

Becoming the ideal fangirl, however, is a step-by-step process. In this blog post, I will be revealing these steps, and before you know it, you will become as obsessed with someone as I am!

Step One: Choosing the Right Guy
Choosing the right man to obsess over is quite difficult, seeing as you will be spending quite some time with him. When choosing one, make sure he fulfills these requirements:
-he must be, in your eyes, the sexiest man alive (one must be able to use the word 'sexy' when referring to him)
-he must not be extremely popular with the younger generations (as in, Taylor Lautner or Justin Bieber). You don't want to be shunned by everyone you know. The Beatles are the only exception to this rule.
-he must actually be talented, whether it be singing/guitar playing/acting
-you must actually like his work (for example, I adore Miles because his music is so great)

Step Two: Knowing Basic Facts
You must:
-know his full name (Miles Peter Kane; oh no, that's not creepy at all)
-know his age and birthday ( March 17, 1986 age 25; hey, that's my sister's birthday!)
-check his Twitter/Facebook pages at least somewhat regularly
-know the number of albums he has released, and any other bands he has been associated with (this is especially important if you want to express yourself as a true fan) or the more recognizable movies he has been in
-actually own the albums
-read at least a couple interviews to be somewhat familiar with his motives, his goals, his future

Step Three: The Fangirl Stage
This is the final, most important stage; this is what transforms you from good fan into fangirl. This, in the eyes of others, is the creepy stage, but of course, you know it is quite fine and healthy.
-you get excited at any mention of their name, whether it be in commercial, news program or a conversation amongst your friends, to which you begin jumping up and down and shouting "OMG OMG OMG MILES KANE!" (again, this is in no way related to myself!)
-all of your closest friends (and maybe even people you don't know well) know of your obsession
-you go into denial when people describe you as "obsessed" (I certainly am not)
-you reblog just about every cute picture of them on tumblr and virtually gush about how amazing he is
-you've seen just about every music video/movie of them and have memorized every word/movement/quirk
-you hope that one day your boyfriend and/or husband will be just like him
-you get angry when anyone insults him in any way and insist he is perfect
-you dream about how you'd react if you actually met him
-you stood outside the backdoors of the concert hall for 3 hours in hopes of catching a glimpse of him (this is only the most extreme of cases)

So there you have it! If you follow these steps, you should become the Ideal Fangirl in no time! Oh, and remember, this is from my observations of others. This is in every no way related to myself. Have fun! OH, and if you get the chance, actually check out Miles' music. He really is good.


  1. Haha.. I love how you made such a funny and detailed post about the topic. Reading this, I came to the conclusion that I am not an ideal fangirl. hehe.. I don't even know the birthday of the guy I'm obsessing about. tsk.Boo me..

    This is a nice post. :D

  2. Haha thanks! I'll let you in on a little secret though..I didn't know his birthday until I googled it today :P Shame on me! :D

  3. Haha this post was so cute! Tho I've no idea who Miles Kane is! Don't hurt me... :P

  4. Lol I second Hazel, please don't hurt me but I too was ignorant of his existence until now. I am a bit of a Jonny Depp fangirl, though I'm not quite as hardcore as you yet!


Your comments are like cake to me. I can never get enough.
