Hey! I'm new to the group, and I was really happy to find one like this.
For starters, my name is Kat. I'm 22, from the MidWest and I'm currently in a long distance relationship. We actually met through my ex-boyfriend (which is a very long unpleasant story, but I'm happy to share). They were gaming buddies online and we got started talking, had more in common, stayed friends throughout my then very rocky relationship, and started dating in Dec of 2011.
Since then, I have had a lot of ups and downs, and I've gained somewhere in the neighborhood of 70+ pounds. He still says I'm beautiful no matter what and he has been hugely supportive! Of course, he is also stick thin and has horrible eating patterns (which I aim to help him change). Though, his weight is partially due to the chemo and radiation he went through years ago. Still a skinny little guy.
Currently, he is a truck driver and all over the place, and I am recently unemployed. Neither of us are able to live the lifestyles we'd like, but for now we're just trying to do our due diligence so it can happen at some point.
