SSBBW / FA Quote of the Moment

"Why do I like BBW's/SSBBW's? Being a BHM, i understand the ridicule that they have gone through in their lifetime. I also believe that they are far more superior to the "Barbie" types. They have better personalities, better senses of humor, know what they want, have a better sense of direction, are more confident, are not afraid of anything anymore, and the biggest thing, they are a hell of a lot more sexy. I only date BBW's and SSBBW's. There is nothing better than the love of a BBW/SSBBW." ~ Tim [FA]
