    Boys and Brace! Your thoughts!!!!

    So I'm timid to date because even though my parents allow it, I'm worried if a guy won't accept my brace. Does anyone have a boyfriend with a brace and how did they react when you told them? Or does anyone feel thhe same way i do about boys! Your thoughts please!

    First, I like your screen name!

    Second, I hope someone your age comes on here and answers your question.

    Third, any boy worth having and any boy who likes you for you will not care about the brace AT ALL.

    Fourth, as the parent of two 15 year old girls, I agree with Angelica Pickles of Rugrats when she stated, "Girls are good and boys are bad, naughty babies."

    Pooka's right. When I had a post-op brace as a teenager, it didn't bother my boyfriend in the slightest. He said that I was like a butterfly in a crysalis, waiting to come out and spread my wings There are some nice boys out there! Don't bother with the rubbish ones!

    That gives me hope

    I guess with brace I can't help but wonder what a guy would do if i told him about the brace because i know a lot of guys are shallow. BUT despite all those shallow guys i know that there are some good ones that will like and accept me for me and nothing more.

    Talking scoli patient w/ boyfriend...

    Hey!
    So I am a former brace wearer who has a boyfriend. granted I was never braced while we have been datin, but I don't think you have anything to worry about. My boyfriend is completely supportive of all my scoli stuff, and he's always there for me. If a guy is worth dating, that must be true. if a guy doesn't accept your brace, he's not worth it!!! I know if i was still braced, my boyfriend wouldn't care at all. And most guys aren't going to care! They will support you 100% and always be there. So don't stress about it. If its meant to happen, it will.
    Hey, so I'm Rebecca, I'm 20 and I wore a Boston Brace for one year, and then a Cheneau brace for 5+ years. The Cheneau changed my life. I now am out of brace full time!!!! Its amazing. For all my scoli-girls (and guys of course) hang in there - the day you get your brace off is the best feeling ever. All the years of wearing it won't matter when that day comes. amo vobis!

    Yeah, I know that there are a few good guys out there. But I get kinda scared because I know how shallow some guys can be. But if he is really the one then he will be fully supportive of my scoliosis and brace. Some guys have accidentally touched it and it scares the crap out of them so I became sort of reluctant to find a guy that would accept me and my brace.
