Hi red--

I'm in a hurry--I missed how long you've been dating BF?

Sounds to me like things are fine---just continue to take them SLOWLY-----and all will work out, I'm pretty sure!

Re: the denture---TONS of people have dental problems---partials/bridges, etc......if you want to bring the issue up slowly......mention you 've got a dental appt coming up....and mention you've had a lot of problems in need to go further...................believe me, if he really cares for you, the denture piece is "nothing"---it would be like me worrying that my BF wont love me because he found out I wear contact lenses, and dont have natural 20/20 vision-----would he rather I be running into walls? LOL---what other choice do I have? Would yours rather you be gumming and pureeing your food? LOL---what other choice would you have?

Maybe it's a sign of deeper insecurities you could work on, but in and of itself---it's NOTHING.

More later-----

Hi and welcome to the board (from lurkdom).

I think Laurena said it best. However, I'd probably just tell him outright. Why? Because I'd be in fear of him saying, "I hate when ppl don't take care of their teeth" and then I'd even be doubly insecure and scared. But do it when you're ready. Since you guys are taking things slow, there's not point in airing out every single skeleton yet. However, like MrsDecember said, I'd do it before some embarrassing moment (if you've ever had those before).

Again, welcome. I think we all are nervous after a failed marriage, and have one foot out the door. It's just a matter of feeling more secure with your r'ship and your self.
