The Museum of Fat Love | On Exhibit | Courtney and Jimmy

Courtney and Jimmy

Jimmy and I met on Match.com in May of 2006.&bsp; He emailed me and we started chatting online, that progressed to a few phone calls, and finally an actual date.

&bsp;We had already made plans to meet up&bsp; for a light dinner on a Friday night, and were chatting on the phone as I was leaving work and driving home on Wednesday when Jimmy said, "Hey, why don't we go out tonight?".&bsp; (He told me later that he just couldn't wait another two days to meet me!)&bsp; Of course I was thinking, "But I don't have anything to wear yet!"&bsp; and&bsp; "My hair is a mess!", but I agreed because I was so excited to finally meet him in person.

I remember thinking when I saw him for the first time that he was very cute (and tall), and had a great smile.&bsp; We had dinner and then took a walk in a nearby park while we got to know each other a little better.&bsp; He was so kind, and funny, and such a complete gentleman!&bsp; We saw each other pretty much every chance we could from that point on (which was convenient, since we actually only lived about 5 minutes apart!), and that's how it began.&bsp;

A year later (on the nose) Jimmy proposed in the same park where we had our first date, and we were married on June 7, 2008.&bsp;

I had never really dated another fat person before (although I had always been on the fat spectrum somewhere between a size 14 to a 24, which is what size I was when we met), and always thought that my fat was something that a man would have to see past to get to know me.&bsp; Jimmy made me realize that my fat was as worthy of love as the rest of me, and he has never once said that I was anything less than gorgeous.&bsp; He loves to touch my round hips, my jiggly belly, and my soft thighs.&bsp; He is not a BBW fetishist (although he does tend to have an eye for curvier women), and had dated thin and fat alike before me.&bsp; Jimmy tells me every day that I am beautiful and that he loves me, and I know if I gained 50 lbs or lost 50lbs he would love me just as much.
