Has anyone found their soulmate or best friend


Hi everyone 

I can't help wonder if anyone has actually  found someone special  through this site I ask as I find it so difficult to find even a friend  in this crazy world 

I am new here and don't really think it would work but I am an optimist   so who knows  .

I am a chrones disease person with an ileostomy  since 1991  was married for almost 30yrs  single for the last 5 years

Never give up, the perfect blossom for you does exist. It may take a life time to find but when you do, life is complete. 🌸

I would certainly like to think so

Ahhhh don't be fooled - there is always a bug on a blossom - (no one is perfect)   but you can always schoosh it off and  accept it for its beauty ! … ask me how I know….jb (married 58 years and counting and  still schooshing ! 🤣)


Where's Magoo?  Look up his profile.

Of course nobody is ideally perfect, but what I find perfect and what another person finds perfect could be totally different. So, my 🌸 is perfect in my eyes, and in the end, that's all that matters.

Well i found someone with the stoma and during the recovery from the reversal i lost her 


I certainly have met someone amazing on this site, but, he doesn't realize how great he is.  He is definitely an outstanding person and I got a lot of love for him.  


Yes i have and she understood what i have and she took me as i am and i am so glad and happy i found someone yes it is very hard to find someone that will understand what you have i have had this for 38 years and it's a part of me know it was hard at first 


I did find someone I was in a relationship with for many years but sadly he passed away a few year ago. I also talk with another gentleman who I met through here. Long distance relationship unfortunately. 


My soul mate married someone else 


hi howdy

To answer your question, no. But I have met a man across the pond (Scotland) and we have been "friends" for a couple of years now. Neither of us are well over all being over 70 and having other issues. Your history sounds so much like ine I had to pipe up. arriage ended badly after 28 years, Not only did I leave y paid for hoe, but even left the state! My colectomy, Dec. 1989 for UC  diagnosed as IBD with multiple refivions and a failed J-pouch.  I moved back to Arizona August 2016, but might as well have been single 4 years before that! I had some emotional healing to do, and I have done to work. I am an old hippie and live a simple life, like to read and I write poetry.
