I care for this dear woman and want her to know that I find her attractive but I feel at a loss as to how to proceed.Any insights you can share would be most appreciated--it seems like there's very little information about this on the Internet!J Log in to post a reply Mar 23, 2015 PM - edited Mar 23, 2015 PM by Dive Cat Well, I guess my thought is..you are going to become intimate, then you probably outght to be able to be emotionally and verbally intimate and honest then, and it is probably a good idea to ask her beforehand how she feels about the changes to her body as every woman is different, and no one here can answer for all women, or for this woman you are dating.Depending on what kind of recon she has had, assuming she has had recon, they may actually feel pretty "real" to you (i.e many flap reconstructions can feel quite natural), and she may still derive some pleasure from them, or maybe none at all, or maybe she never has found them a source of stimulation in any event.
