How about a Denture Living Dating site :)

Lets face it ..If you are already married or have a B/F or G/F that you have been living with for some time that is comfortable with the situation..You have nothing to fear. How about the ones that have been single for awhile knowing that this was their only option (Getting Dentures). The absolute thought of trying to date a non denture wearer and them being openminded enough to accept that about you, or are they going to think that it is well...grouse. I am 52 years old, tall and thin and dont consider myself unattractive...BUT...now that i have dentures, well i feel less unattractive. So i say there needs to be a dating site for US..Seniors have one, White , Black , Asian have one . Heck even Farmers have one.. And i hope i brought a smile to all our healing faces.

There actually are dating sites for seniors....just not toothless seniors. Lol. The way I look at it is this...if someone thinks its gross or doesn't want to date you cuz you wear dentures then they are noy worth my time. Good luck in your search. And I am glad your dentures make you feel less "unattractive".

I know exactly where you are coming from. My teeth got so bad I finally relented to upper dentures at 44. I'm single and like yourself I don't find myself unattractive. It's been a year and I can't bring myself to date, you know how do you approach that conversation? Not easy.

I think you both look great! Is this something that you think you "should" bring up right away? I'm surprised there haven't been more comments about this, quite frankly. I'm sure it's on many minds.

Hi  Everyone ,I'm Wayne, I was always brushed my teeth twice a day or more and used paper clips as a tooth pic even brushed my gums hard  never any bleeding like most would get , lost two  from bad crown and another from another bad crown, cavity went from poorly fitting crown inside  in the gum  to another tooth also smoking and soda are a cause, i quit smoking 11 years ago, I'm 54 almost suicidal ,  but i work on it you might say ,  being single sucks , I'm in Los Angeles, north of  city in the desert on 2 acres  , retired  house paid for and set for life,  still single  I'm angry,  but stopped thinking of suicide as  a cousin  had a pulmonary embolism  he died at 46 in Sep,   my mom just passed Nov ,  so I'm up for living,  so there should be a site for people who wear dentures,   I'm now thinking  full implants ,  I wish you all the best,   Erin your beautiful   .

You are the same age as my significant other of 14 years ( I am 45 and wear dentures).  Since when is 52 a senior?  I suggest a dating site.  It shouldn't matter to anyone if you wear dentures or not.  I was so self conscious about my natural teeth (or lack thereof) that I hated to smile.  Now, no problem.  I think that if someone is that judgmental, they are not worth your time or you affections.  So, get out there and go for it!

Lol. I'm now 4 weeks in to full upper and lower dentures. My teeth were awful before and my husband is glad to see me smile again. I do feel self-conscious about them though - especially with them out around him but it doesn't seem to bother him at all. I'm 55 and hope I never half to date again, but I agree with the others - if you're dating someone who has a problem with it, they ain't worth the time!

Hey, I found this and thought I'd share, smizin.com it's a website where you can meet or date others that don't want to be judged by their teeth, such as us denture wearers. I'm fed up of hiding and feeling ashamed, time to get out there and start dating with my dentures

Beware of "Denture Perverts" - I know of a few "stalkers" on another forum.
Yes, it's a thing.  All sorts of Weirdos out there.
If a normal guy can't accept you as you are with your dentures, he's not worth your time anyway IMHO.
