I’m here because I have tried the conventional way of dating.

You go on a couple dates with someone. There is definitely a connection and in fairness to them and me it gets to the point where I have to share.

So you sit down to have a serious conversation and fill them in on who you really are and what makes you unique and special. Needless to say I have gotten some great friends out of it. And my family will always say...they just aren’t the one, they don’t know you yet.

For me my surgeries shaped me into who I am today. Shaped me in to somebody that is happy and loves life and wants to appreciate all its beauty. Someone that desires fulfillment, strives for success and is passionate about everything that I do.

I wouldn’t be me if I hadn’t gone through it. That being said I’m different. I’m not your standard textbook body. I am unique. I’m confident with myself and my body. But I live with me everyday. I have no choice but to love all of me. And why wouldn’t I.

Though I’m mindful that not everyone would. And I can appreciate that. We all get our excitement from different things. And we all tolerate uniqueness differently. Either because we know what we like and won’t get past it or we haven’t had to ever manage or understand such a circumstance and that leaves us scared.

My hope is that we all find what we are looking for on this wonderful journey of life
