MY story.

I have liked bigger guys since I can remember.

I remember in elementary school, looking at the boys in class who had some baby fat still on them, and wondering what their bodies looked like. What fat felt like. I dreamt a few times about having powers and making them fat. Sadly, my dreams always sucked. Once, making them being “fat” was basically a tennis ball shaped belly being pushed really far in their shirts.

Middle school led to locker room men. I remember seeing chubby guys for the first time without shirts and loved it.

High school, sadly, stuck me with the jocks who didn’t have abs, but no fat either. I had a few guys I could look at though. One was chubby with muscles, and had a great ass. One was chubby with big nipples. I couldn’t hide my boner well enough! Swimming class was okay, but again, more toned flat stomachs then actual fluff.

My first boyfriend was chubby. He’s actually fatter now and though we’re just friends, I love to look at the shirts he squeezes himself into. My graduation boyfriend was also chubby, but carried himself differently. The first one was round, where this one weighed more, but was more like flat fat. Don’t get me wrong, I loved him fiercely. And with his big nipples and ability to fuck me senseless, I was in heaven.

When we split (no surprise there), I discovered the fat man’s holy grail. GROMMR. Yes, the site for fat men and fat men lovers alike. What an amazing discovery! I learned so much from my times on Grommr and met so many interesting people. What started off talking about fat and role playing about who was getting fatter, went towards watching YouTube videos of guys who were expanding and loving their bodies to reading gainer erotica.

That was probably one of the best discoveries. Since getting fat at the drop of a hot was unrealistic (sadly), I loved imaging guys swelling with fat over the course of a few minutes and seeing someone else’s words flow across the screen of my phone. Many loads were spent reading stories about fat roommates, magical gainer shakes, asshole jocks who needed to be taught a lesson, and once sex started to show up in the stories, it’s clear to see that I became hooked.

While I met different guys online and talked about gaining, and met two guys in my state, both with hot bellies of their own, I couldn’t help but wonder one thing: Could I get fat too?

In middle school, I spent every summer at my grandmother’s, far away from my parents. She is traditional and makes a lot from scratch, always with leftovers. She would bake fresh cookies, dessert recipes from magazines, and would buy us almost anything we wanted from the grocery store. Once, when she took my sister somewhere, I snuck three oatmeal cream pies from the jar and ate them as fast as I could, hoping my weight would go up a bit form these treats. During a rainy day, I wished that one M&M would make me gain a pound of fat. I must’ve eaten a whole container. The same summer, I dreamt about swallowing chubby kids from my class and adding their fat to mine (yes, I kind of liked vore before I even knew what it was).

High school I was always skinny. I didn’t really gain weight until after graduation and after my break up. See, halfway through senior year I started working at a grocery store with a built in Dunkin’ Donuts. It was here I discovered ninety-nine cent donuts, Snicker bars (with the associate discount) and the wonderful bliss that was fast food. I went from a size 30 or 32 (senior year 2012) to bigger that a size 34 but smaller than 36 (current size). Roughly 170ish to 210.

I do get told different things about my weight. One grandmother says, “You look good with some fat,” while the other makes snide remarks about it. My old teacher says I look good now that I have fleshed out some. Military aunt says I should watch what I eat. My fat ex (the one who I said could fuck) makes his remarks about it, hypocritical and rude.

A few friends know about this. The fetish. The gaining and encouraging. A few don’t realize I’m not actively gaining, while some know I want to experiment with it, i.e. funnel feeding, stuffed, fed, vice versa to another guy. The works. I want to experience it.

Will I gain? I keep saying I’ll wait until I move out of my parent’s house and have the financial support to over eat. I have a history of diabetes, heart disease, and the usual things in my family, which could make gaining a challenge for me. When I go to gain, I want to do it by carbo-loading and overeating. I don’t know everything about this, but I hope to learn.

Will I stay on grommr? Well, for the time being, yes. My name is needfatfriends, and I’m always up for a chat, but I wish I had more guys locally that I could hang out with and explore this with.

Will I keep writing for you guys? FUCK YES! I love the attention my stories are getting and hope that you guys like what I write.

Well that’s my story. Well, part of it. Maybe I’ll write more personal stuff later on. But for now, I hope you guys enjoy me fattening up some other guys as well ;)

Love you all.

Preference: You're Home Alone

Shawn – Your mom had just left the house, leaving you and Shawn alone in your room. Your mom trusted you enough to leave you two home alone, and you appreciated that. You grabbed the popcorn from the microwave as Shawn grabbed a bowl. You poured the popcorn in the bowl as Shawn grabbed two water bottles from the fridge. You raced up the stairs, and you could hear him chuckling from behind you. You set the popcorn on the side table and flopped on the bed, getting underneath the covers. Shawn crawled onto the bed, leaning over and surprising you with a kiss before settling next to you. You smiled to yourself as he wrapped his arm you, pulling you close to him. You guys spent the next few hours watching movies and cuddling, of course with occasional kissing.

Carter – You walked into Carter’s room, finding him just where you expected: sitting on the edge of his bed playing Xbox. He didn’t even notice that you were there until you kissed his cheek. He paused the game, pecking your lips quickly before resuming his game. His mom entered the room, saying hello to you before announcing she was going to be leaving. She warned you both to be on your best behavior, and you giggled while Carter rolled his eyes, slightly blushing. You both said goodbye to his mom, and you picked up a controller before asking if you could play too. He paused the game again and glanced at you, as this was the first time you’d ever shown interest in playing. You shrugged, and he smiled returning to the home screen. He tried to teach you how to play, but you both knew you weren’t very good. You eventually gave up, leaving the video games to him. He kissed your cheek before returning to the game, and you just watched, enjoying just being with him.

Matt – Your parents had left early this morning to take your brother to a soccer game, and you really didn’t feel like going, so they allowed you to stay home. You were bored out of your mind, so you texted Matt, asking him if he wanted to come over and swim. He immediately responded, letting you know that he’d be over in 10 minutes. You threw on your bathing suit and grabbed a couple towels before walking out the back door. You tossed the towels onto one of the pool chairs then jogged over to the stereo, plugging your phone in. You switched to your favorite Pandora station, and within seconds, music flowed from the speakers. You turned around, only to become face to face with Matt. He chuckled at your startled expression as you slapped his arm for scaring you. You pushed past him and started walking towards the stairs, but he had other plans. He wrapped his arms around you, picking you up bridal style. You had five seconds to get air before you felt your body surrounded by water. You pushed your way to the top, and you could hear Matt’s laughter. You moved the hair out of your face, swimming over to where he was. You rolled your eyes, wrapping your arms around his neck as he gripped your waist. He leaned in kissing you softly, falling right into your trap. You pushed him under the water, immediately swimming away as fast as you could. You guys spent the rest of the afternoon swimming and joking around, and you knew this would be one of your favorite memories with him.

Taylor – You and Taylor were cuddling on your bed when your dad came up to inform you that he was running errands. You waved as he walked out, and you turned to Taylor smiling. He raised his eyebrows, and you crawled off the bed. He watched you with a confused look on his face as you brought out your tripod and camera. You told him it was the perfect time to film the boyfriend tag for your youtube channel, and he rolled his eyes. You’d been begging him to do it for months, but he kept putting it off. You set up your tripod and camera before going over to Taylor. He just looked up at you, and you straddled his lap. You pushed your lips to his, mumbling “please” against his lips. You pulled away and smiled at him, and he sighed. You knew you had won, and you slid off his lap, dragging him to the edge of the bed. You kissed his cheek, and he rolled his eyes again, but deep down you knew that he really didn’t mind filming just as long as he got to spend time with you.

Jack J – You grabbed the ingredients from the pantry as Jack took out the cold ingredients. You set everything on the counter before grabbing a bowl from the cabinet. Your parents had just left to go out to some party, and you and Jack had decided to bake cookies from scratch. You pulled out your mom’s recipe, walking over and standing beside Jack. You started mixing ingredients, but stopped when you felt something hit your cheek. You glanced over at Jack, and he had a smirk plastered on his face. You noticed a white substance on his fingers, and it clicked: he had just thrown flour at you. You reached over and dipped your hand in the bag of flour, flicking it at Jack. In just moments, you were both laughing as you threw flour back and forth at each other. You went to toss more flour at him, but he grabbed your arm and pulled you towards him. You reached up and ruffled his hair, laughing as flour went everywhere. He chuckled and picked you up, setting you on the counter and standing between your legs. He wiped flour across your face as you played with the neck of his t-shirt. He leaned in, and you guys kissed for a couple minutes before deciding to finish baking cookies.

Aaron – You were curled up in your bed watching movies when you heard your door open. Your mom had left a couple minutes ago to get you some medicine, so you glanced over your shoulder to see who it was. You smiled as Aaron walked in your room, carrying a bag of M&Ms. You had been texting him complaining about cramps, but you didn’t expect him to come over. He tossed you the bag, and you ripped it open as he climbed onto your bed. You leaned over, kissing him before pouring a handful of M&Ms into your hand. Aaron wrapped his arm around your waist, gently rubbing his hand across your stomach. You returned to watching your movie, but eventually, you and Aaron both fell asleep, showing you were both way more tired than you thought.

Nash – You sat on his bed as he popped a movie in the DVD player. The rest of his family had just left, so you guys decided to watch a movie in his room. He flopped next to you, pulling you down with him as he fell back. You couldn’t help but laugh at him as you placed your hand on his chest and pushed yourself up. He grabbed your hand and moved it, causing you to crash back onto his chest. You were both laughing, and he brought your face to his, kissing you sweetly. You pulled away, smiling at him. You both looked up as you heard the beginning of the movie, and you rolled off him, scooting back against his headboard. He crawled after you, wrapping his arms around you and pulling you close to him. You snuggled into his chest as he intertwined your fingers, making you feel safe and at home.

Cameron – You fell back onto Cameron’s bed, signaling that you were bored. You guys were home alone at his house, but you’d spent the last three hours just watching reruns of NCIS. He looked back at you and raised his eyebrows, and you voiced that you wanted to find something else to do. Cameron suddenly hopped off the bed, rummaging through his closet before pulling out a couple board games. You looked at him and smiled, noting how he looked like he’d just had the best idea ever. You rolled off the bed and situated yourself on the floor, and he set up the game, sitting across from you. You admired the smile on his face, and you were still amazed at how you ended up with the sweetest guy ever. He glanced up and caught your gaze, and you leaned across the game, kissing him softly. He pulled away and smiled at you quickly before kissing your cheek. You guys returned to the game, and surprisingly, it was some of the most fun you guys had ever had.

Jack G – Jack’s parents peeked in the living room, saying bye before closing the door behind them. As soon as you heard the door shut, Jack smirked at you and picked you up, tossing you over his shoulder. He carried you up to his room, tossing you down on his bed. He closed his door, even though you guys were now home alone, and walked back towards you. You could see the lust in his eyes as he leaned in, pressing his lips against yours. He pushed you down on the bed and wrapped an arm around your waist, bringing you guys as close as possible. He deepened the kiss, slipping his tongue into your mouth. He pulled away, not hesitating to attach his lips to your jawline, kissing down your neck. He sucked the skin for a couple seconds before returning to your lips. He flipped you both over, resulting in you straddling his waist and his hands roaming up and down your sides. You pulled away, needing a moment to catch your breath. You weren’t ready to go farther, and Jack would never push you to do something you didn’t want. You slid off him, snuggling up beside him as his fingers brushed against your shoulder.

“The thing I’ve come to learn about life is never to rely on an expectation of how things will be in the future. Because you never know what’s coming for you so you gotta take it one day at a time and be thankful for what you have while you have it. That’s me every day, thanking God for letting me live my dream because if it all goes away tomorrow, I wanna be glad for what I had.”
