Anders disliked his nose and was teased about it in his teenage years so he got plastic surgery as soon as he could afford it. And we've probably all heard about how that "weird looking Eric kid" sometimes made fun of other kids who resembled him.

I don't get why Eric looked weird. He looked normal and attractive. But he looked different on photos and in their home videos. I can understand why superficial people teased him, because to those people you are an easy target if you have other interests, are too thin or fat or if you're wearing the wrong clothes. Most people are just stupid. Maybe I'm not that superficial, they looked average and weird in a good way. Very Happy Anders looked like a cute average norwegian guy. I think often it's their low self esteem that makes them feel ugly. And yes, again, superficial society won't help make it easier to accept yourself and be yourself. But that's just my opinion. ;)

That is really the thing isn't it. They all looked normal. But take someone like Elliot. On the outside is he is good looking and even somewhat attractive, it was his personality that threw others off. I think that Eric was skinny and dorky yes, but that it was probably his anger and other personality traits that caused him to be left out. I think at first Eric might have been the type to try too hard to fit in. Then when he didn't he got angry. Both of those things, the desperation and the anger and resentment are not qualities people generally like.

I agree with [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] that their personalities threw people off. Another thing that might have worked against E&D is they were very awkward. You can tell when you watch them in their videos. A lot of their mannerisms betray how self conscious they were, and if you didn't know them it could suggest that they had submissive personalities. Those things I guess could be a turn off for some people (particularly shallow teenage girls) and could've been part of what got them targeted by jocks and bullies. Especially in a sporty athlete-centered school.

You could be the hottest person in the world and have the lowest self esteem and think the way you look isn't good enough or terrible.

And you guys are right about coming off awkward or unconfident. It will show and people will sense it, and if you don't own who you are or use your personality to make up for your looks maybe, then people will treat you the way you present yourself. Hence, people either stray away from Eric and for Dylan's case well, he rarely had dates, despite the fact that maybe one or two girls (Robyn esp) hang around him.

Yea and kinda jumping off of that I still do think that there were def people both as friends and potential girlfriends around Dylan and Eric and they just didn't care about those people. Robyn liked Dylan. He did not like her. Maybe she wasn't his type or whatever but it isn't like no one liked him. Same for Eric. They wanted the things they couldn't have.

I think they had such high expectations of the perfect girlfriend that only a fantasy girl would fulfill their expectations. There were girls that were interested in them,but they were not interested as they didn't meet their requirements for the perfect girl. It is kinda sad.

The boys were actually shallow if not more when it came to girls. They complained about having no one, what they mean is they couldn't get the girls they wanted; the popular girls, the hot girls, etc etc. They have a superiority complex and yet, they knew they wanted to be like the zombies just to feel accepted and to be part of hot things.

Dylan was different from Eric though in a way where I have a feeling there were couple of girls who were intrigued by him and probably wanted to talk to him but he sort of cut most girls out because there was that one girl he was into. I'm not sure if he had been writing about the same girl in his journal but, he seemed very dedicated to a chick if he was into her.

As far as having a type that's out of your league, wanting someone you can't have, and obsessing over one person to the point where no one else can come close to that person goes, a lot of teenagers are like that.

I feel like Dylan probably had more opportunities to date and had more girls intersted in him than Eric did though. Dylan had a certain style that could be appealing to some circles, and was easy going and probably more relatable. Its a shame he didn't give Robyn a chance though. That girl probably would have done anything and everything she could to make him happy.

I feel more sorry for Eric when it comes to dating, even though he set his standards a little too high. He actually went out and tried to get girls to spend time with him, but always came across as too weird or did something that ended up scaring them off. I feel like he probably wanted someone he could pour his heart and soul out to, and it probably came across as him being whiny and boring. People at that age aren't always equipt or interested in handling other peoples' problems so maybe that was part of the issue? Eric also seemed a little old fashioned to me, which isn't always a bad thing, but it might have been a turn off to some of the girls he was interested in.
