    Nope, never would even consider.
    1)morbidly obese people usually use a ton of medication that has loads of side effects and is usually pretty expensive.2) i accept that in most cases people are morebidly obese because of eating/other disorders but i dont think i will be able to handle that mentaly
    3) that means no/not easy traveling, no hiking, no gym etc which are big interests for me
    4) no general attraction

    How would you love someone before you even went on a date with them?

    I personally wouldn't no :puke:

    And I assume the morbidly obese people you saw in the documentary had been with their partners from before the massive weight gain. They must really love and care for them if they didn't leave despite the fact they're no longer able to do simple things like walk or get in the shower.

    Personally, I don't think I could. I'm with someone who is overweight but nowhere near the point of being morbidly obese and unable to move or take care of themselves.

    Guess that shows how much you like your own poop.

    No, for the simple reason that I want mutual respect in a relationship- if they lack self-respect, which is how they got into their current situation, how would they be able to give me respect?
    Interesting point

    Their weight would have to be almost 100% for medical reasons. Even 70% medical and 30% gluttony and lack of self control would turn me off.
    No? Not a medical reason that got them that big, no. Afterwards they developed many problems sure. Most of the morbid obesity is self inflicted...

    I don't want to be mean, but I don't think I could.
    It's not mean, you're entitled to feel how you want! Not like you insulted them

    How about if they were skinny and got morbidly obese while you were in a long term relationship with them?
    Why would you just sit back and watch someone gain 200lbs :indiff:

    This sounds very shallow but I work hard to keep my weight in check and that I'm healthy etc. I'd expect my boyfriend/partner to do the same.

    I need to be physically attracted to someone aswell, for me to be in a relationship with them.
    Understandable

    maybe their partners were with them before they got so big?

    There is no maybe, they all said how they met as if the interviewers also were wondering lol
    they met in chatrooms, and catfished or revealed later in the game, or the person was chubby chaser, something like that
    I wasn't wondering how you can love someone so big, apparently they can find love, I was just wondering is this more common than I thought and so far no.

    SophieSmall I've read some of your posts you seem to openly be against this kinda stuff amirite?

    No. I don't find it attractive and as sad as it may sound, being physically attracted to someone does plays a role when it comes to relationships. Isn't that what kinda differentiates a friend from a partner? I wouldn't mind being friends with them.

    I wouldn't go as far as some people and call it 'disgusting'. It's not appealing, no, but I'm sure a morbidly obese person already knows that. They often have psychological problems and didn't have help when their whole excessive eating thing began.

    It's a sad position to be in.

    Online dating.

    Pretty the person meant that you should focus more on the personality than outer appearance. As in, you fall in love with them, not their appearance.

    Depends who they are as a person, I would not be physically attracted to them, but, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I guess lmao

    No, even though I'm not sure why you'd assume that? Are you saying those people can't find love at their weight...? It was some series on Discovery Home and Health lol and several episodes they had met as I said above in like chatrooms at that weight, or had chubby chasers,etc
