What's More Attractive: Healthy or Body?

Isadorabelle Isadorabelle
After being familiarized with a controversial article on obese people, it made me wonder about something and I decided to pose it to the good men and women of Edenfantasys.

It would be easier to set up a scenario first before I pose my question.

You've met a man/woman whose personality is on target to what you like. This person is great personality wise, however their body type isn't what you generally go for. They are too chubby or too thin.

Now, I don't know if this would really bug anyone or not, but if it did, could your difficulty at accepting them be eased if they had been doing everything they could to overcome this?

Like, if the person is overweight and eats well, exercises, yet for whatever reason they aren't at a healthier place.

Would you be willing to support them while they try to get to a happier place for themself?



(I'm not saying that someone NEEDS to change their body type for someone else, I am also not saying that everyone would automatically put such importance on body shape. As someone who isn't quite comfortable with my own body despite dedicated effort to change it, I'm vary curious to see what other people think and feel on the subject. This is by no way meant to suggest that I have a problem with how anyone chooses to live or, willingly or not, how their body type is.)

If they're happy, I'm happy, but as a premed, I'd have to do the whole "concerned about your health" shebangle. However, there's a huge misconception that JUST because someone's overweight that they're unhealthy. There's overweight girls ten times more healthy than normal or thin sized girls. I think it's important for everyone to be healthy where they are.. if they WANT to be healthy or as long as they fully understand the risks of NOT being healthy. As long as they're healthy and/or informed, be as you are.

You know, I was wondering why no one was replying to my thread. Not even a flamer! Then, I realized I didn't put an alert on it. *sigh*

I had a friend in high school who was probably about 6 feet tall (really, she was very tall) and she was somewhat bigger. I remember having discussions with her about it and she was totally okay with how she was. And, she was healthy.

You'll have to forgive my ignorance on this, (and if you feel this is off topic for the discussion, could you message me? I'd really like to be better informed and a premed student is probably the best for that) but how is someone's health determined like that?

It's interesting to find out the stance of people as far as health vs. appearance. Both things are such a big deal in our society and, taking for example runway models, these big factors in society seem to contradict each other.
