ive had D for 5 years, and have had 2 partners in that time. i was NOT taking good care of my D, so i don't think its a fair assessment of what it is actually like to date with D. i would go out to eat without my insulin, drink without my meter, wake up high, wake up low......i basically hid the intensity of what diabetes is.
now that i'm aiming for pretty tight control i am very wary about accepting dates. always starting with coffee dates.....and, to tell you the truth.....i haven't moved beyond that in a long while.
someone is going to have to be pretty special to trust them with my diabetes.....both of my previous partners (while i've had D) have not had the least interest in my disease.
Yes that's true. I've had dates that would never eat salad or veggies. They would eat like a steak, huge baked potato or french fries, 3-4 dinner rolls and a big desert. They would leave the veggies on their plate untouched. I don't let their poor eating habits influence me. I order and eat things I feel is good for me. In fact, in my present position I eat a better diabetic friendly diet when I'm on a date than I do at home.
Of course if I ever found a keeper (Mr Right) I would be concerned about his diet. It would be better if he had good eating habits from the beginning rather me trying to train him later. From what I've heard, some men are untrainable. : )
Boy, talk about diabetes putting a dent in your dating habits.... I'm living in Knoxville but I've gone too blind to drive a car, and man, talk about inhibiting your social life! I'm currently on disability, so my bills are paid, but my social life has taken a serious hit...ahhh, watchagonnado....
