Personally, I don't think Diabetes should be hidden like some dirty little secret. If you meet a person that you enjoy being with then just be yourself. Diabetes is a part of you. I met my boyfriend a year and a half ago and I've been a diabetic for 4 yrs. I don't remember it being a big deal when I mentioned it to him and now he supports me 100%, If someone truly loves you they will love all of you. Take life one day at a time and enjoy it to the fullest.

It never was a big deal with me and my boyfriends either. I don't think she needs to know before you approach, but you shouldn't keep it a secret. We've had many discussions about this subject here - here's one of them - if you go to "Forum" and search for the word "dating" you can find many of them. Please tell me if you have any trouble finding your way around here, I know you are a new member

diabetes is part of you, you shouldn't have to hide it or explain it to anybody. You need to show to her that it's apart of you, that you have control of it, and then just be yourself.

I think that you should be honest about and if she don't accept you as you are than it's not to be. it's not your fault you're a voodoo doll. I'm a low vision person and I can't drive a car or do somethings because of my sight but I'm maried to a wonderful woman and we have 3 wonderful grand kids. just don't get in no hurry and take your time.

Hello Manish: :)

When I was in the dating stage, I made sure that I liked the Guy first and had feelings for him before I told him that I had Diabetes. We went on about 4 dates first. Some of the Guys that asked me out, already knew that I had Diabetes but a few didn't.

You should make sure that you know what you need to about your specific case of Diabetes because we do differ in ways. If you know for sure that you like a certain Lady then you can show your Lady Friend that you have the Diabetes under decent control just by your actions, so it will not be a big worry to her. If you have it under decent control....Good job!!

If you Really like a certain Lady and decide to tell her right away, then just casually mention that you have Diabetes and leave it at that. For example, I cannot eat that cake because I have Diabetes. Try not to sound gloomy.:D

If she has questions about Diabetes then answer them for her. Don't be pushy....feel confidemt about yourself. It certainly is your right to to fall in love with a Lady even though you have Diabetes. But the Person that you are in love with, has to decide if they wish to marry someone with Diabetes. That is their right.

Sincere Women can usually be found anywhere but not everyone has that gift. Look where People help other People of their own free will.
