Re: Online dating and braces...

I am single at the moment, if I venture into OLD I will post a picture of me with braces, just a natural smiling picture. That way if anyone is put off by it then they don't need to make it an issue, they can see it and just not interact with me in the first place.

Braces next week - feeling nervous

I am new here... I am also new to the whole braces thing.

I am getting my braces fitted next week (I think - that's my next appointment anyway) it's the start of a long road with double jaw surgery at the end.

Any tips for making the days after the fitting easier? How much will it hurt?

Thanks!
