Hey everyone, so I'm going to be getting braces in about a month for a long time (18-24 months), and ill be going to university in september 2011.
Obviously, this is really annoying but I want to know if you met someone with braces would that put you off a bit? (in both friendship and relationship aspects?)

I don't think people will mind if you have them or not, tbh. A person is a person, no matter if they have braces or not.

braces don't improve someone's appearance but they don't take away from it much either. as long as you don't treat them like a big deal i.e. dont cover your mouth when you laugh etc. no one else will

plus most people these days have had braces at some point so they'll understand more. we've all been there

out of interest: Is there a possibility of wearing them just for sleep so that you don't have to walk in them ?

Just got my braces off after 2 years, and I can tell you from my experience people really only ever noticed it once. Meeting someone with braces is not a put-off at all. And as mentioned earlier, almost everyone has gone through it at some point! And I'm sure at university there will be some people with braces too! As long as you're comfortable with it- everyone else will be too! Don't worry; and good luck!

Getting used to it is a pain, but once you are- it's hard to even feel that they're there
