    I'm obese, I gained a lot of weight due to steroids for my medical condition. It's soul destroying at times because I'm not greedy, lazy or anything like that. My friends who eat much more than me stay skinny. The amount of weight I gained looks especially bad because I'm only 5'3 tall.*

    So this will sound hypocritical but I wouldn't date someone who is morbidly obese, simply because I'm not attracted to that build. I accept that I will find it very difficult to find someone I personally find attractive while expecting them to find me attractive. I'm disgusted with how I look, no matter how much my friends and doctors tell me that it's not my fault I feel like a monster. People who don't know me will always assume I am greedy, no self control and don't care about how I look. It angers me that I am shallow enough myself to say I wouldn't date someone who is morbidly obese.*
    It's not shallow, you 1st hand experience it. love should be freedom, not imprisonment.

    Don't think it was me, I don't remember a thread like that.

    To answer the OP though. No I wouldn't date an obese or morbidly obese person, though I have dated an overweight person (didn't look all that big though).

    The reason being, I just could not live and share my life with someone who doesn't respect themselves enough to have gotten to the point of obesity especially morbid obesity. I don't want to be with someone who I couldn't imagine growing old with because they'd be much more likely to die before the age of 70. Nor would I want to be without someone who can't take part in every day activities that I'd like to be able to enjoy together because of mobility issues that are entirely self inflicted.

    Though accept on rare occasion obesity (though more likely just being overweight) can be no fault of the person, as an above user has stated taking steroids like prednisone can cause your body to **** up in terms of weight by causing redistribution of fat to non desirable area such as the face and neck. It can also cause bloating and fluid retention making one appear fat even if they have not gained any actual fat. It also often increases appetite which can lead to overeating..though a bit of common sense and low cal snacks can solve that one.. Though symptoms subside once medication has ceased.
    Yea it's definitely rare and I've seen people get obese off steroids, but morbid obesity?

    If they become morbidly obese chances are they were already overweight to begin within and aren't doing all they can to prevent weight gain (low sodium diet and managing excess appetite by eating low calorie foods as opposed to reaching for crisps and chocolate etc).

    Yea exactly they were overweight already but they had to become overweight as well yano. I don't know much about dating a morbid obese person so I ask the masses but it seems from the show that various people met them morbidly obese. That's wild bro lol

    I've not dated a morbidly obese or obese person.

    But my mum is obese (probably morbidly but nowhere near as bad as the stuff you see in those shows) and honestly it's depressing, upsetting and heartbreaking to live with and watch. I would never voluntarily put myself in the position of watching someone I love slowly kill themselves.

    I don't mind beefy guys who have a belly although I probably wouldn't date one.

    Can't see myself being attracted to a person who was morbidly obese. They don't appeal to me physically and likely have a lifestyle which is very much different to the one I'm striving towards.
