I ended up being single 6 months after my op and before anything had "been tested". When I started dating I found women fell into 2 camps:
1) Wouldn't touch it with a barge pole !
2) Lots of empathy, compassion, kindness and patience
I soon learnt to tell them up front rather than waiting to "suprise them" later!!
Guess what it turns out the Type 2s are the only ones worth having, shame it took me 34 years to find out my X wife was a type 1!!
Anyway 3 years post op and a lot of great experiences under my belt and I am now in a wonderful relationship, in fact we are planning our marriage next spring..
