If we're not careful, somebody is going to start a dating group on here!

I'm not interested in having kids (way too old now, but never was), so the only down side I see is that I wouldn't be getting all the attention! (Kidding! Sort of)

Honestly the real down side there??? Such cute kids b/c Teenagers!!! LOL!

I have been in the same relationship for going on 5 years and sometimes I wish he had Type 1 diabetes. I think about all the times he would just KNOW how I feel and not give me that crazy look. Or not even give me that "I feel sorry for you" look. He would watch what he eat more. My boyfriend can go through a WHOLE damn box of honey buns like its not no tomorrow. Don't get me wrong he is not fat he is VERY skinny and I think that makes me even more jealous and envious lol.

I dated a guy like that: two hollow legs and built like a drinking straw.

He could eat anything, any time and he never gained a quarter ounce. I was soooooo jealous.

He was smart, generally kind and cute, though, so I forgave him his superior metabolism.

I think I would only want to date A T1, but ive never had Girlfriend in my life so i have no exp with the subject

My T1 daughter (7 years old) has a huge crush on her T1 friend. They have been in the same class since Kindergarten and spend a bit of time together (a lot of it in the nurses office) so they have gotten to be great friends. I have joked to my husband that they will make beautiful diabetic children someday, but in all seriousness, I have to admit that it would worry me a little if she decided to have children with another diabetic.
