Being morbidly obese for most of her life, Stacey had never dated. But that's no longer the case. "I'm happy to say I've been dating," she says. "It's very funny because he had gastric bypass, too. He was 700 pounds."

Stacey says that when they first were intimate, there were some complications. "The very first three gifts he gave me were a fire extinguisher, shades and blinds. And let me tell you why. We both hadn't been intimate in a long time so we both were really excited. So I set the mood [with candles] and he fell back on the pillow on the candle and we set the pillow on fire. He had to get out of bed, put the pillow out, wait for the embers to go out. So next week he came and said, 'I have something for you and he gave me a fire extinguisher.'"

As for the shades and blinds, Stacey explains that she's self-conscious about the way her body looks. "I said to him the first time, 'Listen, you've got to bring blinds here. My room's not dark enough.' And he was like, 'Alright.' So he stood on a chair with a drill and put up blinds because I only had like leopard shades. And then I said, 'It's still bright.' So he said, 'Okay, I'll bring shades next time.' I said, 'You'd better because daylight savings is coming. Unless you want to wait until 10 p.m., you better!'"
