Hello everyone! I have decided to restart my blog after being away from it for over five years. Life has been pretty busy and for the most part I have been far happier than in my previous life. There was never any doubt in my mind that I was doing the right thing as far as SRS was concerned, and the last five years have confirmed that it was the right decision for me.
Just a couple of months after returning from Thailand, I was keen to get back out on the dating scene and soon found myself in a relationship with a girl called Heidi. Everything started off great, even after her being told about my past, but over an 18 month period I became aware that she was overly possessive and jealous of my friends. She even went to the extreme of contacting people from my previous life, for what reason I will never know! I was so blind to this and should never have put up with all the bullshit she gave me, and I certainly regret having lost some great friends! Love is blind they say?
I made the decision to finish things with Heidi. We had been living together for just over a year and I did find it hard to let go. Possibly because she was my first girlfriend post SRS.
After Heidi, there was a short relationship with Sarah. She was a good friend of Fiona's and a really lovely genuine person too. Sadly, we only lasted a couple of months mainly because I just wasn't over Heidi. As a result, I have lost my best friend who I miss loads! The moral being... Don't sleep with your best friends mate.
The next year I spent 'making friends', as I'd recently moved to a new town. Visiting the local gay bar and being 'fresh meat' was a great experience that I probably needed, even if just to build my confidence. My confidence quickly improved to the point that I had gotten myself a little reputation, which in turn got me a job DJing at the gay bar.
This is how I met my current Fiancé, Sam. Everyone fancies the DJ right? Sam approached me while I was working and we got chatting and instantly hit it off. We met up for a drink a few days later and since then we've had a fab time together. It has now been nearly four years since we met and I couldn't imaging life without her. There's never a dull moment and we always find an occasion to have fun! We've recently moved to a lovely little place in the country, which is so peaceful and quiet.
Life is good!
Anyway, the main reason for starting my blog back up is because I have, for a long time, been contemplating FFS and that I'll want to document that, or at least share my thoughts on the matter. I have a consultation booked with Dr Bart Van de Ven for mid November for which I am both excited and nervous about. I have also been looking at Facial Team and will be booking a consultation with them too. I think it's a good idea to see several surgeons, as they will all have slightly different ideas or techniques etc. and Facial Team do seem to have a very good reputation in the trans community.
