Time for my monthly pitch for membership. Join. It's a good thing. 'Nuff said.
I am stepping out of my "pity pool" for a moment in order to announce my usual plug for the lurkers out there. Please consider joining and becoming a more integral part of the community. As an added bonus, I would be willing to add you (in which ever fashion you like), to an upcoming story I'm writing (as soon as I finish with The Remote Tour). Think about it.
Yes, if you have been a lurker for a while or just discovering Dims, please think about becoming a member!
Oh for gawd sakes, we don't bite. I just beat people up with my fairy wand....but only if they deserve it. I promise to make you like it
I’m going to make this long in hopes that’s someone else like me will step out of their shell to become a member, or to be more involved as an existing member.
After accidentally coming across Dimensions over the summer, I lurked for a few months before finally giving in and becoming a member. I hesitated because I had the fear of the site being one big ad promotion (it’s not, and you can turn the ads off anyway), and also...I felt guilty for coming to a website for the sole purpose of reading sexual content when I am very happily married (to a very sexy man!)
I finally became a member after growing tired of not having access to certain things, so I signed up under the condition that I would not be involved in any way. But then I started seeing encouraging comments left at the end of stories, and I started reading conversations between other members that were GENUINE and real, and they covered other subjects outside of the topic of weight gain. I still stayed hidden, though, but only because I’m a private person and enjoy being that way.
It was completely a spur of the moment thing, but I began to write a story to prove to myself that I wasn’t chicken, and I’m so glad I did. I have received encouragement through likes, personal messages and public messages, and I’ve gotta say, people that are part of Dimensions are so genuine and down to earth. I’m sorry I ever limited this site and the people to just the topic of fat, because it’s so much more. I’m glad I broke out of my (very!) private and withdrawn shell to be part of a community that relates to everybody in one way or another.
I am also trying to become more involved myself, which is painfully hard for me to do...so I’m writing this to let y’all know that I’m trying to challenge myself and my withdrawn (but very friendly!) personality. Cheers!
I'm a long-time lurker. I've been coming and going for more than 10 years at this point.
I guess what I would like is to have more in-person encounters with like minded people, but I don't see that happening, so I really just check in to sites like this because knowing these people are somewhere out there keeps me relatively sane.
I'm new and seeing what it's like. Other FA sites seem to just be about selling videos, I need more mental stimulation with like minded people.
Welcome Paul! And indeed, Dimensions is so refreshing some days for the longer discussions.
