Choices are limited in the dating pool if you're overweight. In general, not always, but most of the time, an overweight person's viable options for dates are also overweight themselves. However, aren't men and women both are attracted to "normal-sized" people no matter how much they weigh themselves? So, when an overweight girl and an overweight guy get together, does it necessarily indicate that one of them was lazy, impatient, etc. and "settled" for a less-than-ideal partner?

I think its honestly both. We put emphasis on what we find important but then we have ideals that surpass our real needs/desires. Most people dream of perfect looking partners but if someone does stay in shape most likely (hopefully) they don't think its super important so it won't be too high on the list of factors for a loved one. For instance my body isn't perfect and although I have a clear idea of the perfect guys body I would easily "settle" for a body less perfect than the one I have in mind. Because to me body isn't super high on my priorities, that doesn't mean I'm settling on the person it simply means no one is perfect and I found a guy who is awesome for me even if his body isn't ideal.0
