I care about him a great deal and really want this relationship to work. Getting to work on your teeth is very important for your health. She has managed to get implants--I have a removable partial. I think as you age it starts to look worse, because it goes from youthful and cute look to homeless drug addict look for some. .Next
I have a hard time with that one. As a straight white woman, I get more messages from suitors than others might. I am just starting to talk to to someone who has dentures he's pretty young. Kissing is, I believe, an integral part of a romantic relationship, and if I can't kiss him, I don't see how the relationship will survive. The black you see is the dentine underneath. Gingivitis, if I recall correctly, is the most common disease in the world. And no, for the record, being single does not mean you are a failure at anything, no matter how much those damn diamond commercials want you to believe that.Next
As I said, at first this did not bother me, but as time went on, we talked about him getting his teeth fixed. I don't know what to do because there is no way I cannot talk to him about it but at the same time I don't know how. The right person will not care. His bad breath may already be an indication of problems. How can we date, since I am never going there? I am missing my 4 front teeth. I have no missing teeth at all, all of them are there even the 4 small wisdoms. Here's a heads up for the post 50 single men out there.
It's not complimenting on everyone but it's not a big deal. Everyone has something about themselves that might be a dealbreaker for someone else in becoming attracted to them. A client of mine actually had this happen. Consider it courtesy that they are not wasting your time. Find out if he is considering getting them fixed or something and then decide. Would you date a young man with Dentures? His meth mouth is so advanced, he'll likely lose every one of his once pearly whites.Next
Thanks in advance for any you can offer. For me that would be a major problem. Uh, if they fell out of her mouth at the dinner table? In early sobriety, we often have a low threshold of pain, perhaps because we are not producing enough endorphins, and our body chemistry is all out of whack. Just be happy you live in the age of technology where so many things are possible. Hey, good news for you, they had no idea! It's not so difficult brushing them or at least get a check-up once in a while. How do you and he face difficult challenges? I actually like imperfect teeth, and I know a lot of other people who do. Someone who rejects your bad teeth is rejecting your history of depression and the resulting poverty or lack of self-care.Next
If I was otherwise attracted to them, then so what if they had to put their teeth in a glass at night? Or does he insist that his life when he is not with you is not an issue? She got to the restaurant and was unable to identify her date. I laughed, since we were engaged and was soon moving in with me. Personally, I have always been more drawn to the teeth when someone laughs. Especially at my age thirties - I'm not ready to handle the realities of kissing someone with no teeth real or fake, whatever! I have been so scared that he will run a mile, when he finds out or if I tell him. I know the denture palate is smooth and unnatural but this is not something that can be easily detected when someone is laughing. We were taught as little girls to make you feel good so we listen.Next
To the person that said ready to dumb the denture were wating. Thank you for your encouragement, you have helped to put my mind at ease. Don't pat yourself on the back too much when it comes to looks, some things we don't earn or necessarily deserve but they can also be taken away from us. Your preference is your preference. Basically, I have a standard set of dentures that snap on to 4 implants 2 top, 2 bottom.Next
After I got clean and sober, my girlfriend, who later became my wife, insisted that I get my teeth taken care of. Then again the teeth issue is making me think I should runaway. Dear Captain Awkward, I really enjoy your blog and the comments. I was shocked when about 4 years ago, I received a letter from the municipality where I live stating that there was naturally too much fluoride in our water. When I met him three years ago, he explained he had lost his teeth in a street fight and at the time I thought nothing of it. And whatever it was he hid it well.Next
