‘I Felt Liberated’: How Freezing Their Eggs Changed These Women’s Dating Lives For The Better
by Amanda Duberman

Jennifer Frappier froze her eggs when she was 36. A few years later, she was still single and thinking seriously about using them to become a single parent. She prepared to buy a house with an unused wedding fund and started browsing sperm donors. She figured she wouldn’t have time for dating as a single mom, so she joined Tinder just for fun.

“I thought, I’m going to go on basically my last few dates and get to know people and have fun,” she said. “Maybe if I date with no pressure or expectations, I won’t be so disappointed. It was very freeing.”

And then something completely unexpected happened: She met someone almost immediately.

Frappier’s experience isn’t unique. She’s one of several women who told HuffPost that freezing their eggs changed their dating lives for the better. One dated people who enriched her life but who she never would have considered had she not already secured her access to motherhood. Another felt a weight lift from her existing relationship that she hadn’t even realized was there. All of the women HuffPost spoke to reported feeling a new sense of boldness and levity in their dating lives after freezing their eggs, unburdened of the pressure to settle down and fast. Read on for their stories.

28 Weeks Pregnant

I can't believe how fast time is flying by.  28 weeks already!  A couple funny things have happened the last few weeks:

27 weeks:  I arrived to my 11:00 am massage appointment ten minutes early.  After chatting withe the receptionist for 10 minutes, I realized that my appointment was the next day.  At least I was at the right place, just a little early.  Prego brain is totally a real thing!

26 weeks:  Can't sit on the floor anymore to put my shoes on.  It takes too long to get up.  #totallylaughedatmyself
