Had bypass & lost 100lbs & nervous to date

I  had gastric  bypass and now weigh 106  after losing almost 100lbs,  I'm very nervous to  attempt to  date due to  the extra skin and "baggage". I feel  much better about myself  but just nervous. What should I do?

Are you considering surgically having the skin excised?  Even if not, you certainly don't have to strip down any time you have a date.  Get to know the guy first, and all else will come from that.  Either he is with you or he is not, and if he is not, why are you thinking of going to bed with him anyway?
