It is Feel Good Friday and it’s my thirty-fourth birthday today! How perfect, then, that I have two feel-good e-mails to share.
Reader Katie forwarded me an e-mail from the wonderful BUST magazine, which featured a little blurb about Big Fat Deal. One thing they said really jumped out at me:
The best part of Big Fat Deal is the community aspect. Commenters rally together and offer each other advice and support, unlike most gossip blogs.
I completely agree. And as serendipity would have it, I also got an e-mail from Sara, who wrote in earlier this month because she was worried about feeling self-conscious during her first sexual experience. This e-mail speaks for itself, really.
I just wanted to follow up my previous message (about sex) with an update. Things went swimmingly and it was exactly as I wanted it to be. Sex was great, loving, tender, hot, messy and perfect. I even got so comfortable with everything that I went on top a couple of times! I got over the fear of him seeing my entire body (rolls and all) and just went for it. He later said he ‘loved the visual’ of me on top and ‘letting me take control,’ so there we are!
More importantly, I wanted to thank everyone on BFD for their kind words of encouragement and fantastic advice. I read them the night before I left for vacation and they were so wonderful that they made me cry. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so supported and lovely in my entire life.
Anyhow, that’s the story! Everything went well, he didn’t care one little bit about all the stuff I hate about my body and said I was the sexiest girl of all time. I personally think he’s a keeper.
Thanks again for everything! You have no idea how helpful you and the other ladies (and gentlemen?) in the community were for me.
I am so unbelievably proud of this blog today. Thank you all for helping Sara, and for challenging and supporting and helping each other. Group hug!
