I was married to a guy who I explained the peanut allergy to over and over, he was really careful in the begining but then began to test me, he would eat a snickers bar then try to kiss me, but usually i would smell it on his breath and get really po'd... ultimatly one of his reasons for wanting a divorce was so he could eat whatever he wanted...

wow boston, that's really scary. i'm glad you aren't with him anymore, he could have ended up killing you by "testing" you...

For anyone who thought it didn't happen, a teenager in Quebec died this week. Maybe I need a form for anyone I kiss:

I agree with you about guys not being worth it if they can't "remember" to keep you alive! Even the jerkier guys I've dated have been able to live with the no-peanut rule.
My bf now is wonderful. He gets more upset than I do if there's a chance of me being exposed. Once a friend (who wasn't thinking) brought over some Thai pizza. My bf was like "Thai pizza? As in the kind that could kill Jen???" Needless to say our friend had to wait until he got home to eat his pizza!

From day 1 I've always made it clear to women no peanuts when you are around me. I've never had anyone object.

There's a difference between us (the allergic) 'making it clear' and them (the ones kissing/etc us) --- I've thought I've made it abundantly clear (word death used...) and I've still have a handful of hive-reactions from beaus who 'just didn't get it til it was too late'
I think women may take it more serious that guys, just b/c we women tend to be more thoughtful and remember things in different ways. Men though...boy, they either forget most of the time or don't care enough to remember.
bleh on men...

Could be that men aren't as good as women are with this. Never thought of that.
