Some of the members here are just beginning their journey to better health and many are at goal.The one thing we all have in common is that we wanted a healthier, happier lifestyle.My hope is that my sharing my experience that it will encourage and help other WLS post-ops explore their own dating experience.Before you dive into the dating scene, I caution you to evaluate your life and make sure that you are ready for dating.Many times the next step is questioning if you should dip your toes into the dating pool? However, it is important to go into the dating scene with your eyes wide open.

Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...

The important thing is that you’re thinking about it and wanting to add dating to your post-WLS lifestyle.

Now that you’ve had surgery, lost weight and improved your health, you are starting to gain your self-confidence back and starting to really like the new you.

** Jen: My #1 concern was that I would resent men who suddenly paid attention to me because I was thin. It sounds easy to do but it’s not easy when you are insecure.

I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to take compliments or believe what they said. I found myself looking for the hidden meaning behind words or questioning a man’s motives. Jen: Honestly, I signed up for an online dating profile even when I wasn’t sure I was ready to date.
