So I'm 17 right and of course I have had my fair share of boyfriends in the past but as of my diagnosis with type 1 a month and a half ago I've been starting to wonder what dating is like in the life of diabetics. I don't know if I want to start a relationship and then potentially turn guys off because of diabetes lol. I would be on the lookout for other diabetic guys to date but of course in my town of 24 000 people I'm pretty sure there aren't any. Would be nice haha because at least they would understand.
Dating, for me, as a diabetic hasn't been too different than dating before I was a diabetic (although I have not dated a diabetic). If you're dating someone who doesn't have diabetes just hope that they're more understanding towards the diet changes and the highs and lows, and if they're not kick them to the curb! Or really if they're not understanding at all kick 'em to the curb.
And even in a town of 24,000, you'd be really surprised as to who is a diabetic! Just put it out there, you'd be surprised.
Haha there are only two high schools (both of which I have been to) one has 1000 kids the other (which i currently attend) has 800. There are definitely no diabetics in my current school and I am pretty sure that there aren't any in the other school either. But you know what? Being a diabetic is definitely not in the criteria to date me haha. I just thought that it would be interesting to see one day.
If I recall right my school was smaller than yours and we had at least two! I knew one pretty well before I became one! :p
I think it'd be interesting to be dating another diabetic, I think it'd keep one another honest, at least. I know I've got a few bad diabetic habits, if you can even call it that.
Just gotta be positive if anything about the whole thing when it comes to that.
Thanks mate. Will keep that in mind.
well my cousin is type and she just had a little girl. i guess happy married. My mom just saw her and.. well she saw the ups and down more easily because she has seen me. well i am not going to sit there and lie to you and say its going to be ok; it just sucks. for some is easier and for other is more devastating. i had my share of devastating events and i just don't know how to help u. I just wish u the best of the best. :)
Thank you so much and thanks for the add.
you are welcome pretty T1D Hanna :)
Hey Hanna i was diagnosed with diabetes around ten years back nd since then have had many affairs but u know wot none of my ex understood how i wanted to manage my life so in all the only fact i learned is that only a diabetic can understand other diabetic.
