Besides being the place where I can relate to other FFAs, be all :smitten: at BHM pics and include myself in awesome discussions, Dims to me is a great place to make friends. If anyone wants to drop me a PM I'm always down for meeting awesome lovely people! I've made some great friends here already. :happy:

Yeah this pretty much is a good thing for Dims. I like all the chat about folks here into this sort of stuff, I don't seem to find much support outside of such communities like this. Dims is Great.

Deep affection for fat men and the women who love them.

Very fond memories of this board back when dinosaurs still roamed the earth. I think I was the very first person to post to this forum when Conrad added it. Anyone remember what year that was?

Welcome back. The oldest posts I see looking back are from September 2005. So sometime around then, I guess.

The great white north, eh?
Yah, this software came online in 2005. Dimensions started hosting the old boards in, hmmm, I'm thinking maybe late '97? But the boards were originally at the BBWQT site before she couldn't afford the bandwidth, and I think those started at the beginning of '97 or late 96?

(I got connected to the internet at home in Spring '96, and BBWQT didn't have the boards or chat room at that point. When my son was born in Spring '98 I got home in the small hours of the morning and wanted to tell someone, so went into the chat room, and I'm pretty sure it was Dimensions hosted by that point. In between those two data points I'm less sure about dates).

But geeze, this means I've been on-line, creeping fat related web sites, for twenty years now. Wow, that is a sobering thought -- I wonder how many others are still around who got their start in the online fat world with Melanie Bell's site?

Hi Tad! Thanks for the input! It was so long ago it is very vague at this point. :blush: I recall some sort of list like software. Do you remember that? Just a long line of topics that would move up to the top as a post was added, but nothing was sectioned off. Hmmm. Very fuzzy! At some point someone suggested we needed a separate board for BHM. Didn't we take a vote? I recall watching every second go by waiting for Conrad to get it up and running.

A day didn't go by that I didn't look at the Dim BHM board. Good times! :bow:

If any people from the 90's are lurking about, please say hello!

I have some free time so I'm going to play catch-up in the threads. :eek:

DIMS means a lot to me. It's been six long years during which I grew from silly teen into slightly less silly woman. I met great people on this board, had my first online crush( thanks to that guy I've tried amurican candy! :p). To be honest this place pretty much shaped me. Six years ago there was only one fat guy in my school (so basically in my life, seriously I had profiles on like all dating sites and there was no one, nobody knew anyone fat, I couldnt find anyone anywhere ) and I was a complete newbie FFA. Through this placed I've learned what I like and that I'm not alone. I had "in her chair" printed and I was reading it before sleep. Im pretty sure I've cried because it was so perfect and then I saw the rest of the stories and I was doomed. I felt like I more or less belong somewhere.

I'm also 99% sure that my English sounds like it does because of DIMS. I'm able to communicate without any problems and understan majority of people thanks to this place and the countless hours I spent skyping with some of you. When I joined DIMS I couldn't understand at least half of what you've talked about, but I was trying my bests. I had dictionaries opened 24/7. I was still too afraid of posting on majority of threads tho(TO BE PERFECTLY HONEST I STILL AM LOL ) I'm sorry if I ever sounded weird or whatever, I never meant to I just either couldn't understand you or was to afraid to answer because I worried its gonna be wrong. I still feel like some of you don't like me because I gave the wrong impression at first.

To wrap it up, DIMS is the best online thing that has ever happened to me and I'm so grateful for this experience. I hope I will make even more friends and that I will stay here as long as it's up (so hopefully forever).

Ps. Sorry for any language mistakes I'm just polish and I don't have any dictionarys at hand 😉

Ps2. Love you all

I've never had the slightest bit of trouble understanding you, even years ago. It's incredibly impressive to me whenever someone can learn English as a 2nd language. Anyone who's ever had to help teach a child English comes to understand just how backwards and contradictory a lot of the rules of it are.

Ive been thinking about this question a lot. Dims does and has meant a lot to me. I joined 10 years ago as a 20 year old. I probably read every story in the Dims library to realize that while I a) was not attracted to women, BBW or otherwise and b) Did not want to gain weight myself - I was really into fat men. I had known I was an FFA since I was about 15, however, felt alone as my preferences werent the norm. Through the board, I began to express my preferences, feel comfortable with them and give fewer fucks. It helped me to feel like I wasnt an abnormality or perverse because of how I felt. As I did, I realized most women I spoke with outside of Dims were supportive of my love of fat guys. :)

When I was 23, I moved to Colorado. I was new in town and didnt know a soul. I, however, had a strong core support group that moved with me through Dims. :) I loved being able to laugh, connect with other amazing women and (of course) look at pictures of hot guys in the days of The BHM Picture Threads. ;)

And as you all know (because its not subtle) I met my boyfriend through Dims. Not only do I get to be open about my preferences, but we are great together and Ive never been happier. Recently I traveled to Alberta to meet his friends and family and feel like my circle has expanded and Ive met so many wonderful people through him.

tldr; Dims has provided me with love, adventure, support, great friends and has helped me to yell from a mountain top "I LOVE FATTIES AND IF YOU DONT LIKE IT MIND YO BIZNAZZ" ;)

Dims is my little sanctuary, a place that is always ready for me to return (because I definitely haven't been lurking for a decade, lol). Dims is the only place I have where I can be honest and forthcoming about the most secret desires that had previously felt like a sickness in my heart. It has saved me from despair and self-loathing to hear stories of others who are like me, especially other FFAs, as I hear the same thoughts I have always had coming from them. From the stories here, through the descriptions in those delightful fantasies, I know that I am not alone, and that I am understood. That I am not a freak or a horrible person, which is how I felt as a teen growing up. When I need to reconnect with my FFA desires and to affirm their validity, I come back here, and am once again treated like family.
