How Getting Braces Helped Me Find My Husband
That’s right. You read that correctly.
All my life I had crooked bottom teeth and as I moved into my professional career I was very self conscious about it. I also needed to expand my palate to help my teeth fit properly to avoid dental problems later on in life. So, I took the plunge and got braces as an adult!
In my rush to advance myself professionally, I didn’t consider the impact braces would have on my love life. Let me tell you, being 26 with braces, all of the men went running for the hills when they noticed! Can I blame them? The nice thing was it was an easy way to see how superficial they were.
Then one night I was sitting in a restaurant (okay, a great little bar in Queen Anne if I am honest with you) with my bestie. I started talking to a blond guy who was standing next to me. He earned major points that he didn’t run away when he saw my gleaming metal mouth. We talked all night long and he didn’t seem to care that I had braces! He called me the next day and I jumped up and down that I had finally found a good guy that could look past the outside appearance!
Fast forward 2 years later, the braces were off, I felt confident with straight teeth, my sports career was taking off and best of all the guy I had met at the bar was now my husband!
Braces are important for kids to avoid speech problems, dental issues later in life and in my personal experience they create straight teeth for greater confidence in life. I wish my parents had gotten me braces when I was younger so I didn’t have to get them on when my business career was peaking.
