Many of the bloggers I read are married or were already in a committed relationship before surgery. So, I never get to read about other single girls going through the journey of figuring this whole thing out when it comes to new dating.
Saturday night I had a first date, and I intentionally made it too late in the evening for dinner. 8:30. So we ordered appetizers and I had a few bites of these boneless lemon pepper chicken bites. It went so well that he asked to go out again tonight, so I suggested coffee (so thankful for skinny/lite options). But at what point should I tell a date that I've had surgery?
Typically I'm an open book. And it's not like it's a secret...I'm sitting here blogging with my real name. But I don't want to tell too much too soon. It did come up in conversation that I've lost weight, but I didn't disclose how exactly. My typical response to someone I don't want to tell the whole truth to is "Eating less and moving more". That's not really a lie.
I told one guy after a couple of dates before surgery and it was the last time I saw him.
