You're in a long-term relationship (and sexually attracted to) a partner who is on the pudgy side. He/she loses a bunch of weight (but not to starvation levels). How would this affect your relationship?

Now let's say that your formerly "average"-weight partner has developed some illness that has rendered him/her skeletally skinny. As in the other questions, personality stays the same. How might you react?

This poll was inspired by some things I've seen written by men about how upset they are when their partner gains weight and how it makes them feel like they're not with the same person anymore.
