- My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)
Dating Post Op
I’ve been divorced for a few years, and just recently started dating again.. Let me tell you, it’s interesting to say the least. Do I tell everyone I had gastric bypass surgery? Avoid the subject completely? So far I’ve told everyone. The main reason being that they usually take me out for dinner, and I eat very little still. Then I notice that they just stare, and wonder if that’s ALL I’m going to eat… haha Oh joy!Being in the transition of losing weight doesn’t make it easy to date either. I’m far from goal, and unfortunately this society has always preferred slender women. My fear is that the guys who are interested in me now, may not be later.. or that they just will not be interested at all until I lose weight. I know, it’s a bad mindset, but it’s something I’m battling right now.Any others have any adventures in dating post-op? I’d love to hear some stories and maybe get my mind out of the negative thinking. I’m usually such a positive person, but lately I’m finding negativity lurking… Not fun!Till Next Time!Gastric Girl!
