While, I have been dating and trying to find my soul mate and I bring up the topic that I'm a diabetic. The females turn around and drop me faster then snapping my fingers and turn away. Even the parents get involved and think that diabetics cannot have children and should not get married. I have had this problem while dating, has anyone else have this problem or am, I the only one.
Theodoros, the way I look at it is like this: it takes a long time to really get to know someone. a lot of people put on this happy mask and are on their best behavior when a relationship starts out. Only when trust becomes stron do they let you see them...for real. If anybody treats you like that - it is a GIFT. For that moment, you get to see through the mask and then make up your own mind about a person who acts or thinks like that. As for me, it means I don't have to waste any more of my time! As far as talking about diabetes -- yea I completely agree that if you make a big deal out if it, then it becomes a big deal. Don't make it a big deal - because it's not.
the love of my life didn't change her attitude or behavior toward me when I told her about my diabetes. she cared and wanted to know if and how she could help me and that's all. she had questions and we talked and that's all.
if you don't mind me saying this: don't chase too hard - the best relationships meet you somewhere in the middle, sometimes when you are realxed and being yourself - doing the things you really like to do - you find the relationship of a lifetime - or it finds you!
