I have had dentures for 8 months. They are still awkward and a chore and they make me embarrassed and shy. I'm a single father of 13 year old twin daughters. Now my kids have been hinting and slightly pressuring me to start dating again. We have been on our own for just over 5 years now. Well I finally met someone a month ago and we started going out and everything was going great and then she started hinting that she wanted to take the relationship to the next level. So I disclosed to her that I wore full dentures which would make kissing and other activities awkward and difficult. Bam. She dropped off the face of the earth. Won't say a word to me. That was just over a week ago. So am I supposed to wear a sign? Is a love life just not an option? I'm somewhat of an introvert anyway and my kids, bless their hearts, have been trying to pull me out of my shell, but this just knocked me right back down. Anyone else have this issue? Any advice?
