I met what has turned out to be the love of my life 2 years ago. We met on the site, met in person in North Carolina. A couple of motorcycle rides and then I was on my way back to Florida. We started corresponding, then seeing each other, and now she has moved to Florida and we have been together ever since. True soul mates.
Obviously something big in common, which helps. I could never go on a date with someone else, especially only for the second time, have multiple blow outs and leaks one right after the other, and expect anyone else to really understand. Made for the most interesting date I've ever had, her too.
We both have ileostomies, hers is Stella, mine is Studley They get along well. Someday we'll write a book about our experiences so far. It's been a great couple of years and there are many more to come.
Our ostomies obviously help in understanding each other but when you truly find the one part of you that has been missing all your life, anything else doesn't really matter. The right person is out there for everyone. If it is meant to be it will happen, they will come to you when you least expect it. Good luck, Stella, Studley and Jack(the dog without an ostomy)!
