Braces at 19, i.e. not getting laid for at least another year)

Opinions on getting a brace when you're an adult? Anyone here had one when they were into their adult years?

It seems to me like a good way of repelling women for at least a year (not that I'm finding that difficult atm olol) and continuing to look like a child, but it'll pay off in the end I suppose. I'm pretty sure I can also get one for free so I don't have to worry about the dental charges.


So basically is it worth it?

don't they have braces that are hard to see or invisible? Try those.

I don't think braces are as bad as people make them seem. It's only because in movies and stuff it's usually the nerds that have braces. It'll probably have like a 5% change in your chances of getting some.

I chose not to get braces when I was a kid because I didn't really care what my teeth looked like. Thought about getting them now (19), but I still don't care at all. My teeth are bad

i know this may sound stupid, but i was referring to the end of that episode where Lisa gets those classier braces that don't stand out, restoring the status quo and allowing them to never mention her braces again.

I dunno, I know I guy that had them when he was like 27 and met his wife and got married with them. Shouldn't be a big deal and if you think your teeth are bad it'll make up for it anyway.

So braces may actually increase my chances with women and could possibly lead to marriage.....Interesting......

I had braces from when I was fourteen until I was twenty one. I didn't wear my elastics like a ponce. Could have had them off sooner.

Do yourself a favor: Do anything you possibly can to get them off sooner.

The amount of cuts in my lips I had...

I wasn't saying the braces were why.

Just that most non-shitty women won't really care.

You're asking a community of guitar nerds who don't really have much experience with women.....
I mean your chances have gone from like.....15% to 10%

^ Invisaline costs more, I'm pretty sure, and not everyone can get them. If your teeth are just wide apart or are under/over biting, then yeah you can. If they are higher or lower than they should be, they can be too much for invisaline to handle.


Also braces are bad to have. Not with the social aspect of having them but just having them and having metal shit cut your lips and the shit you can or cannot eat and the extra brushing you have to do and so forth. Talking wise, people won't care. A girl in my class just got them this week actually and she's in a public speaking class nonetheless. If you aren't a little bitch about them, no one will really notice them until 1) your speech is back to normal, which happens quickly, and 2) you get them off

Which is worse, TS? Having braces for a year or having messed-up teeth forever?

Better to get them now then later on, right? I'm nearly 19 and still have braces, then jaw surgery, and then braces for a few more months so don't feel too bad about it. The result of perfectly aligned teeth will be worth it (I hope).
