Common since when did u guys get shy. :P

Maybe the reason you didn't get much response is because some of us are either in a committed relationship or are married. Those of us that are in a relationship don't really care about the gurgles, burps, farts, etc. Well I can really only speak for myself.

Sorry I can't be anymore help than that.

Sorry....I'm single and banded, but not dating (and haven't for quite some time) so don't have any advice to give. Figure I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. Let me know if you come up with any of your own!! :cool:

Okay Bandit, I'm posting on your thread cuz I like you so much, but I'm married and getting banded this week, so not much feedback here.

However, I know that you have just GOT to be as cute as a button with so much personality that banding and dating will just go together like PB&J! If you are not telling your family, then you will probably not feel comfortable telling a first date, and I wouldn't. I would definately give an excuse though, following a strict diet, only easily chewable foods in small quantities, etc. then just stop talking about it! The more of an issue you make it the worse.

You have a different scenario if you are more intimate than dinner on a first date, and, honestly, let's hope first date, dinner, intimacy, don't all go together on one night!...or I'll have to wag my finger at you for giving it away too easy! I think your heart will tell you when it's right to tell. But if this guy is that special, it will be easy. All the others, save your energy, in more ways than one. Know what I mean?

If he's scared away by belly noises, he's not the one for you!

Hey Sweetie!

I am in the same position, but not dating yet so have no advice. ALL of my friends and family know, but I dont know that if I met someone knew, I would want them to know that part of me, yet. When I start dating again, and am but a shadow of my former self (weight wise) I would like to observe the men i am dating. I would like to see how they treat people that are different. I can just see being on a date with a man, he making a rude comment about an obese person, and that just being IT for me! I could NEVER be with someone that is not accepting of someone becuase of their Size. This is why I am making a scrap book, from beginning to end of my weight loss. I have been Fat my WHOLE life, it is as much apart of me as anything, it has made me the person that I am today.. and I want to share THAT Kara, with my future husband, just as i want to share the NEW Kara.

My new rule is to tell ANYONE about the band before sharing a meal with them. One of my good friends almost called 911 last week when I had a PB at our lunch table. I never warned her, and she was freaking out more than me. She told me my eyes were popping out, my face was red, my eyes were watering, etc. I think it would be far more embarrasing to let a guy learn the hard way.

Or, just order broth and mashed potatos. But then he'll think you're really weird. Men really love seeing women eat real food. You'll be eating really slow, and you can't talk while you're eating. Oh, and you can't talk during a PB to explain that you're not dying. It's not much fun going out to eat with people who don't understand you. I'm still chewing the first bite when they are ordering dessert. I feel like I get cheated out of eating when I go out so I decided to let people know in advance.

I wouldn't worry about it if I were you. I went on a blind date with a girl I later found out was banded. I had no idea and it actually started me on the path to research the band. The only thing I remember thinking to myself is "why won't she drink anything," but I figured she was just being a little shy which I though was cute. Just watch what you eat (nothing new)so you don't PB!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
