My boyfriend has bad teeth. He has braces, but his teeth are covered in plaque and are turning black in the front. I still have to remind him to brush his teeth almost everyday. We've been dating for over a year, and I do love him. But his teeth have gotten worse. I can't even bring myself to kiss him anymore.
Dental hygiene is very important to me. I have decent teeth, so I feel like I deserve someone who takes care of their own teeth.
I don't want to break up with him over this. I just don't know what to do about this.

I have to commend you for wanting to still stay with him, loving him unconditionally, but you are right, it is not fair to you because you are taking care of your teeth. Naturally, no nice girl wants to kiss an "igor". There is certainly no excuse for bad dental hygiene, especially because he has state of the art pricey braces to straighten out his teeth, why let them decay in the process? It makes no sense to me. The way I look at it, if he can afford braces(or his parents can)then he can afford a "day at the dentist." I am very surprised at him. You need to sit him down and address him about your feelings. You obviously love him enough to come online here and "say a mouthful"...Now it is time to go to him and "spit it all out." Good luck, sweetie.1
