An interesting question from my girlfriend came up last night and it applies to us both since we're both getting the surgery. In all my researches on the surgery, it's one that I've never seen addressed. Any time there is a major change in your physicality, all sorts of tastes change. Food, drink, exercise...but what about sexually? I've always been attracted to BBWs, even when I wasn't big myself. She's a BBW, but won't be after the surgery. I've seen pictures of her when she was younger and slender, and she was hot. I would have asked her out in a heart beat.
And I've had all sorts of women in my life, when I was young and single. I've had the girl next door type, the penthouse pet (a real penthouse pet BTW), and probably everything in between. Not all of them were BBWs, but I was still attracted to them.
My girlfriend did some research of her own and found out that there is a high percentage of people who underwent the surgery that have divorced from their partner or otherwise broken up. That's scary to me. Will things change that much?
I can honestly say that I have seen dramatic changes in physicality change a person's overall attitude and personality. One of my best friends got the Lasik surgery and he no longer had to wear glasses and he felt handsome and therefore, confident in himself. He ended up divorcing his wife eventually, and I can't say that the change didn't come into play in that problem.
I love my girlfriend with all my heart and I hope nothing like this happens. I hope that the surgery, since it's going to be a shared experience, will bring us closer together.
Guess it's up to me and God to decide what to do if the time comes. Here's hoping.
