Online, I’d decided not to update my profile photos (the debate with my girlfriends as to whether this is deceptive or not still rages to this day), although clearly the issue was still on my mind. On my first post-brace date with a dreamy artist named David, I spent the whole hour (yes, it only lasted that long) elaborately trying to avoid showing my teeth at all costs and generally unable to accept that my mouth was still attached to my face. Me: *incoherent muffled response* David: Errr so, do you want to get something to eat? But no matter how prepared I try to be, nothing can protect a girl from a stray spinach leaf.After finally receiving a message that was slightly more engaging than ‘Hey bby grl, wanna cum over? Me: *shakes head vigorously* I mean, I know some people like the quiet type, but even I wouldn’t have given me longer than 20 minutes. If there’s one thing less attractive than a girl with braces, it’s a girl who looks absolutely gutted about having them. All was going well on a romantic rendezvous in a Soho restaurant until I started noticing that my date’s lusty gaze had turned into a slightly awkward squint.I was provided with several options for braces and a quote for each.
"When we had the Spinnaker we were flooded both times but those experiences really schooled us and educated us on how to prepare for a natural disaster," he said.My initial reaction was to see if there was any way of avoiding having to wear braces.Yes my teeth weren’t perfect (I’m from the UK) but surely there was some other solution to having them put behind bars.AFTER suffering through two floods that left him without a business, ex-Bundaberg man Brett Jensen said he was well-prepared for Tropical Cyclone Debbie.The former owner of Spinnaker Restaurant and Bar on the Burnett River now resides in Mackay with his wife after losing everything two times over in the 20 Bundaberg floods.
