As a data point, I'm female (and have always been skinny) and no, I would not date an obese man.Because, health worries, activity levels and just what I generally consider handsomeness and dateability in general.Now maybe less obese women want to get married period compared to obese men, but I wouldn't be surprised if this is because a woman is simply more likely to be willing to marry a guy that is obese vs a guy's willingness to marry a woman who is obese.I suspect women are going to be less vocal and opinionated about their potential men's weight than in Incubus's thread about BBWs.I'd probably make an exception for John Goodman, though, so I guess you could put me in the "never say never" camp.Note: 300 lbs does not necessarily make someone obese. Especially if the relationship got serious and marriage was in the cards, he would suffer health problems as he aged in a very serious way.Your response is interesting because it seems like an analogue of some of the men's responses in the BBW thread "I wouldn't date an obese person, but I might have sex with them".Your response is interesting because it seems like an analogue of some of the men's responses in the BBW thread "I wouldn't date an obese person, but I might have sex with them". Yes, I worry about health problems and mobility issues, and I have - at his request - helped him lose weight.

Aesthetically, yes, I prefer a thinner husband, but I fell in love with the person, not the extra pounds.
A little chubby, sure, but not much more than that.I'm likely the 5 billionth person on the planet to note that fatness seems to be much less of a dealbreaker for women than for men.I read a statistic (can't find the cite unfortunately) that also mentioned that obese men are much more likely to get married than obese women.Although I did have a one night fling with a very fat guy once and it was quite fun.
Oh, I'm vocal and opinionated about everything, not just BBWs .I dated a dude who was 6' 5" and 300 lbs of solid muscle. I would rather date a big guy than a skinny, stringy guy. So a 300 lb dude probably wouldn't be For 300 lbs to equal a BMI of 60+, the guy would have to be under five feet tall. I'm a plus-sized woman (250lbs+) and I've dated men of all sizes.
