My husband and I met on Craigslist. I know I know very silly and probably a one off. But like many curvy girls carrying a little too much weight and moving to a new city I didn’t know many people and guys that liked my size were even fewer and far between. I went on all the websites; Match, eHarmony, you name it I was on it. All the guys I would meet on the sets just wanted one thing and no strings attached, or thought I had a pretty face but was bigger than they thought. Even when I was up front in my profile and photos. So I in a fit of anger and desperation posted an ad on Craigslist.

I had just been stood up for like the fifth time in a row and was done. I wrote a list of everything I wanted in a man. Everything I didn’t want. Posted pictures of myself described myself and posted it.

The next day I had about four responses most of them said why are you looking for a long-term relationship I can give you a good time now. Some the typical here’s my dick. But there was one that answered everything I put in that post checked off everything I needed in a guy as he wrote his email to me and gave me his Facebook page and and told me if I liked what he had on his Facebook page to email me back.

Of course I was reluctant he wasn’t really what I was looking for in the looks department but I put that aside. He answered all the right questions and he didn’t send an inappropriate picture. Began emailing back-and-forth and eventually texting and eventually we decide to go on a date.

I was very responsible meeting in a public place somewhere where it was busy. We ended up meeting in a Barnes & Noble and then from there went to have sushiAmelia Abshire.

From the very start it was the easiest and funnest date I had ever been on. We easily started holding hands as we walk to the restaurant and then again holding hands as we walk to the movie theater. We talked about growing up, the music we liked and when we didn’t talk it wasn’t weird or awkward.

After the movie he walked me to my car and we started making out in the parking lot. The security guard for target that was across the way from the movie theater kept coming and knocking on my car window like we where teenagers who weren’t supposed to be there doing what we were doing.

He reluctantly got out of my car and we went our separate ways. Before I even got home he had already texted me and wanted to go out again. When I got home I called my mom and told her I just met the man I was going to marry.

The rest is history. I asked him to marry me, he said yes, we got married 5 months later. We have a beautiful four-year-old little girl and we’re going on five years of marriage. There’s ups and downs and fights and make ups but I tell him I wouldn’t do it with any other person.

You never know when you meet the right person but if either of us decided that we were going to not take a chance we would’ve missed out on the person we are supposed to be with. Just recently my husband told me when he first saw me in person I was bigger than what he usually dated and I told him he wasn’t my physical type either. But we put that aside and grew in affection and attraction with each other. And now he’s the sexiest man I have ever seen and he can’t get enough of my nice big ass.
