    Like over 20 stone and immobilised. I was watching this programme about people who are like 800 lbs and bedridden because of it, and they showed their like bed sores and flesh eating bacteria. One bird got stuck on a toilet, a dude got stuck in the tub, another got stuck in the ****ing car I mean :nothing: strangers had to help each of them, even to just stand up, and meanwhile they've got fairly good looking partners the lot of em?! And they're always like hella embarrassed, one dude had to walk for his bit for like an hr just to avoid fast food shops -__- I'm partially relieved I didn't find any of this hilarious for a change, I was just silenced by shock and pity.

    *They had like hanging tumor like dead weight, looks like they're growing new limbs or summat. And none of the episodes I saw said they got that way because of medical conditions, but it was a pattern of depression and food addiction. I honestly don't think I could date a morbidly obese anything.

    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?

    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.

    Not someone 350lbs+ because if they're like that then it means im their carer, dont mean to sound harsh but I've got things I need to do and I wouldn't be able to because I'd be constantly looking after them.

    My entire pay packet would be spent renovating the house because normal door frames are too small, the bathroom would need to be bigger. We'd need a stairlift or we'd have to have the bedroom downstairs.

    They often need breathing apparatus. When they fall over I cant get them up by myself and when they do get ill, which is more frequently than most people we need to hire a crane to take off the roof and a full fire crew to lift them out.

    And then the doctors will say the exact same thing they did last time: that my spouse has x amount of years left, that they had several heart attacks and a couple of strokes, that they landed in such a way that they are now paralysed because of their weight, that they need to go on a diet, that I'm responsible for their eating habits, that they've got some sort of fungi growing under their flabs of fat, that their muscles and bones have deteriorated to such a degree that a 98yr old woman with arthritis is in far better shape.

    I cant do that.

    And I'll say that some people are with these people because their size makes them feel better, their spouse might be obese but she looks skinny next to her massive husband. Some people have a fetish and literally fatten these people up. Others were their in-house care workers that got to know them and felt pity for them and married them. Some were there before they got big.

    Wouldn't date someone obese let alone morbidly obese. I detest gluttony.

    How about if they were skinny and got morbidly obese while you were in a long term relationship with them?

    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.

    Not necessarily true, but we have the right to our opinions without making judgements.
