After finally receiving a message that was slightly more engaging than ‘Hey bby grl, wanna cum over? Me: *shakes head vigorously* I mean, I know some people like the quiet type, but even I wouldn’t have given me longer than 20 minutes. If there’s one thing less attractive than a girl with braces, it’s a girl who looks absolutely gutted about having them. All was going well on a romantic rendezvous in a Soho restaurant until I started noticing that my date’s lusty gaze had turned into a slightly awkward squint.
’ from a nice bloke called Jack, I immediately felt the need to dramatically blurt out that I had train tracks in a manner comparable to confessing that I had ten children from previous marriages or an axe murderer ex-husband. I spent weeks on the phone to mum moaning about how no one would ever kiss me again before realising that a) it wasn’t helping and b) nobody gives a fuck. Having retreated to the toilet to take stock of what I could possibly have said to warrant the serious shift in vibes, I then noticed what was essentially half a salad bar hanging from my front tooth. As I went downtown for the first time with braces, I’m pretty he could hear the voice in my head screaming ‘please don’t shred his dick, please don’t shred his dick…’ While I have since managed to give successful head (after a lot of Saturday afternoons spent trying to deep-throat a banana), I do try and avoid any prolonged action.
This was short, to the point, and also made him sound interesting and exciting.
I had never written a ‘personal ad’ so to speak before, apart from in my CV, and I didn’t think that details about my work experience would be enough to attract the man of my dreams on an a dating website!
On top of basically feeling like someone was continually pulling all of my teeth out, the emotional impact of my first few weeks with braces was pretty rough – especially when I started thinking about dating. And so, I stopped staring at my teeth in the mirror on an hourly basis and decided to get over it. My ‘hot date essentials kit’ has now expanded from a clean pair of knickers to a clean pair of knickers and an entire bag of bizarre dental contraptions.
Online, I’d decided not to update my profile photos (the debate with my girlfriends as to whether this is deceptive or not still rages to this day), although clearly the issue was still on my mind. On my first post-brace date with a dreamy artist named David, I spent the whole hour (yes, it only lasted that long) elaborately trying to avoid showing my teeth at all costs and generally unable to accept that my mouth was still attached to my face. Me: *incoherent muffled response* David: Errr so, do you want to get something to eat? But no matter how prepared I try to be, nothing can protect a girl from a stray spinach leaf.
I started by filling in my dating profile, and actually found it quite hard to know what to say.
I realised that what you need to do when writing your profile is to stand out from the crowd, and so the worst thing you could do is to start your site profile like a hundred other people do!
As a successful professional, you just don't have time for the 'hit and miss' approach to dating that you find at singles events or internet dating sites.
