Because I'm not completely altering the way I look. My nose bridge will be raised, I'll have bigger boobs, a thinner waist and a slimmer jaw. That won't completely alter the way I look.

LOL. Because I don't dislike the way I look.

Have you considered the third alternative: That she stays thin and attractive because she's always on top of her weight and the way she looks (and never cuts herself any slack)?

Not interested in getting legally married to anyone.

I'm positioning myself to make more money up until my mid thirties. Hoping to select an even better job in the industry that I'm in. So I can save the type of money necessary for a job transition.

I really disagree I've hit peak attractiveness at 26. Honestly I find myself a lot more attractive than I did at 22. Also I find myself more mentally attractive. I'm happier and more confident than ever.

Nothing I am doing can't be played up or down based on the occasion. I'm not getting Maxi Mound boobage or Lacey Wilddd lips.

I know. I want to get back into yoga again twice a week. My best friend (who I'm moving in with in 10 days) is a yoga fanatic and we plan to go again. I will also be heading to Los Angeles at the end of August to meet my ex best friend from college and meet her fiance. Trying to make plans to be happier and healthier and break up the work obsession and the procedure planning.

Disclaimer...I have not read 99% of the 16 (17?) pages on this thread.

That said, I suspect that the simple truth is that the OP has lost interest in sex/dating, because that involves at least somewhat of a focus on other people.. The OP appears, on this thread and others, to have made the choice to spend her time focused nearly exclusively on herself.

Honey, you can't be wrapped up in yourself and your issues, and ALSO have other people be a priority in your life. There's just not enough room leftover when you take into account your level of absorption in yourself and your own issues with your appearance.

Yeah, and frankly I'm excited about it. I moved straight out of my mother's house into a man's house, straight from that man to another's, straight from that man to another's. I'm entirely on my own and independent as of February of this year and I'm all about this ME ME ME time. Don't really care what others think about that.

That's fine... I, myself lost interest in dating, etc. when i was working on my degree and wholly focesed on my own self-improvement that way. But focusing on yourself to the exclusion of others is WHY you aren't interested in sex or dating. Both of those things incorporate attention being given to others.

Did you have a question when you started the thread? Or did you just want a reason to post 16 pages about cosmetic procedures/yourself?

Well, did you really just a question or were you just aiming to be passive aggressive?

I realized I was stressing myself out a lot and I wasn't sure why...and I figured not dating or meeting anyone perhaps was part of it.

I think I've solved it...well...partly. I had my rhinoplasty consult scheduled the 9th of July, a week before my augmentation and I've decided to reschedule for August. One thing at a time. I'm putting too much on myself and stressing myself out unnecessarily...not dating/meeting someone is only part of it, I'm putting myself under a lot of pressure. I didn't have a single day off in the month of June and it's making me feel a little loopy, I'm exhausted.

You speak the truth. OP is in dire need of mental help.

I'd say that the evidence is apparent throughout your body of work on the various C-D forums....

Actually, I didn't recognize you until this morning, which is why I asked. I had no idea who you are until now. I don't remember your name, but I know we had dinner once with a much older, very married friend of mine... I won't any particulars about your lifestyle and activities on this thread, but you need serious help. Men around you use you hard and you don't even know it. I have heard the stories from my friend... please, pull yourself together before you find yourself with something you can't get rid of. (If you want to know what I mean by that, PM me. Suffice it to say, my stomach is churning for you.)

Wow, just reading this comment is telling.

OP I wish you luck on your journey and hope you find the fulfillment you are seeking.

One last thing I will add for the OP. The night we all met in a 5th st dive bar in the EV? The night ended for you the way it did because *I* personally orchestrated it for sport. I gamed you on behalf of my friend who can typically only get action from prostitutes. I am a woman who can yank your chain without effort (and i can probably prove it because i wrote about it here.or on another board.) ... A man you actually wants something from you can game you with even more ease, and that is why you date the men you date. You dont look as good as you did when I met and gamed you 5 years ago. You arent particulary bright. But you are still cute so capitalize on the cuteness while you can! get a.husband! i know you, trust me, you will not do better on your own.
