I plucked the courage to tell my girlfriend. I have been going out with her for a year, and we are living together. I had been thinking about it all week, and last night I just said 'f**k it', and told her everything about me liking diapers.
At first she was shocked. She asked me loads of questions about whether it was something sexual, whether it involved liking kids or disabled folks, why do I like them.. I reassured her that it is nothing sexual, which for me it isn't, and of course it is nothing to do with babies, or the elderly.
I asked if she still loved me, she said yes. I asked if she accepts the fact I like diapers.. she said she doesn't know.
She said that she does not want to see me wear them, and strongly objected in me wearing them to bed. So we went to bed on a sour note.
Today after work things seemed to be okay. She was in good spirits and was happy that I opened up to her. But when I got home she started what felt like an interrogation about my diapered desires.
She asked if I could drop these desires, and if the diapers were more important than she was. I said to her that if she did not accept the fact I liked to wear diapers, the relationship would struggle to survive. She thought of it as an 'obsession'.
She then burst into tears for about an hour. It was terrible. Not the reaction I wanted at all. I felt like she was not accepting at all. I held my ground stating that the diapers were extremely important in my life and I could not just 'drop' the desire.
We then went upstairs, and we talked about it more in a calmer manner. She asked to see one of my diapers, and I explained to her what I liked about it and how it was emotionally and physically comfortable.
As a next 'step', she then asked me to wear a diaper, something I thought never would happen. I nervously put a diaper on, so she could see what it looked like.
I took it off and then I opened up to her about some diaper memories. She still seems unsure, but the reaction was not as good as I thought. I am a little unsure of what to do now. I feel like I am treading on hot coal here.
