Greetings!

I am a Boyfriend to Vicky and I’m her Video editor and Tech Advisor. I have never written any Blogs before but with the relationship I have with Vicky and seeing her website, I have now decided to help her along her journey and add my two pence when she wants. Early life was simple, living with my Mum and Grandma as my Father abused drugs (and this drug addiction would also kill him in the end) and, only on one occasion I’ll add, hit my mother ending the relationship between them. I was 8 when my mum met my step-dad and they were married by the time I was nine. My belief of “love at first sight” stems from them, as they have been happily married for over 25 years now.

I worked for a well-known bookmaker for over 8 years before meeting Vicky, At first, I really liked it, but with the decline of retail bookmakers with people going online, changes were to be made, including severe cost-cutting leading to members of staff working on their own for long periods of time. The job became more and more stressful and I saw long time (One of which was employed over 25 years) work colleagues just leave as they just couldn’t cope anymore. Then, on a quiet day, a fellow work colleague was browsing Tinder on her lunch break and egging me on to go on for fun and so she could compare (she was gay, of course). It was only a matter of a few swipes when I came across Vicky scrolled through a few pictures and said “Heeeeeell yeah!” upon the realisation, she was plus size. The second I “Swiped right” we instantly matched with my colleague pressing me to message her. I waited a while, as I wanted to play it cool haha! I did eventually message her and the rest is history I suppose!

Because of Vicky and her blog, I got to quit my horrid job and work with her full time.
