I have open bite (jaw deformity) and it makes me so insecure that I dont dare to date. I am 22 and never had a boyfriend before. Advice?

Anonymous
I've met a guy online and he wants to see me. We both like each other's appearance and personality. BUT! I didn't tell him I have open bite (lack of occlusion of the front teeth when the jaw is closed normally) and that's why I never smile with my teeth showing (not only on pictures but in life either). It is also noticable when I talk.
Now I finally have the chance to fix the problem (with braces and a lower jaw surgery). As the first step of the progress i've already had an upper jaw surgery to fix my crowded teeth. But I'm so afraid to see him. I'm obsessed with the thought that he will notice that something is not right with my jaw/teeth and be like "ewww". The only thing that comforts me is that I know It'll be fixed within a year. But until that time should I postpone the date or tell him honestly about my insecurities? Would you ever date a girl who's in my shoes?

Well guys, we ended up not meeting in person. He was making excuses. He is not whom I thought him to be.

Even tho always he was the one who came up with the idea of going on a date. But whenever I asked him to tell me an exact place and time for it, he didn’t reply for some days (like he texted me on Friday telling me we should finally see each other on the weekend, and I told him, yeah, so where and when exactly?, he saw my message but didn’t reply, and as the weekend passed, he told me: „So sorry, I wasn’t home” lmao, at least he should have said he was busy that weekend, right?)
