    Let's assume you can't change your weight and it's static. You are in the obese category 6ft and say 17 stones and for short let's say you're 5ft 2.

    Well if the choice is between a dwarf and a teddy bear, I'd pick the bear every time.

    Surprised since 17 stone is pretty big!

    Be interesting to hear some girls views :P

    Short because the first one is generally fixable, also quite a lot of girls seem to like slightly fat guys as it gives them a sense of security whilst there are probably very few that like short guys (never seen an example of this).

    I know a guywho is really short and because of that, he has a lot of complexes. It is alsovery difficult for him to find a girlfriend because of his size.. another friend ofmine, who is overweight, also has complexes because of his appearance… yes, thesecond one could loose some weight and the first one wont grow again. But inthe end it only depends on how you feel in your body and how you handle it

    I hear they like slightly chubby but 17 stone is quite a bit not assuming it's muscle :P

    Fair point - it's the way you see life i suppose. But so far it's been mostly rather be overweight.

    Given the choice, I would rather be tall and overweight any day. Weight you can at least do something about. Height, unless you opt for really drastic measures like limb lengthening surgery, you're more or less stuck with it.

    Honestly, being short. Unless I'm wildly in love with the guy, it bothers me so much to be with a guy who's my height or shorter... I just cant! Rather be with an overweight person. Weight you can change, height not really, unless you wear high heels but I dont see myself with a guy wearing heels prettier than mine...

    but i guess if you're taller your weight distributes more evenly so you could argue that but still

    One adds to life expectancy the other decreases it. Go figure.

    5'2 is ridiculous though. 17stone is not that big, my dad is 16.5 stone and really doesn't look "fat", he just looks strong. And he's only 5'7 ffs, so short by modern standards.

    I'm 5'9 and consider myself small lol

    I personally would rather be overweight as I could easily do something about it.

    Short far worse, much less you can do vs fat where you can actually, with good work, change pretty easily.

    I would rather be short. Yes, if you are overweight you can lose weight, but it may require dedication and perseverance which I probably don't have.

    Then again I'm a 5'0 girl so I'm probably biased xD

    i'd say overweight tbh. Most women won't go near an obese guy(so sorry but true, a lot of shallow people out there!) But at least if you're short, you can find another short women or even a taller women if she doesn't mind. Look at Kevin hart and his girlfriend!
