I'm glad you have shared your angst. I feel I was punished by
God at times. Not one man has been faithful, nice or honest
after I tell them. Easy to get laid. Impossible to have him be dedicated in the long term. I feel you. But now I'm looking to date only ostomates. I agree with Chris dating someone without an ostomy can be almost emotional masochism. In my experience as well, I get treatred like dirt after they find out. No more flowers. No more concerts, diners, parties or theme parks. Just put downs of how they want 'normal' sex with someone 'normal'. So now I refuse to torture myself with a man who has no clue what life is like with a bag. From nowon I will only date ostomates. Chris, maybe dating another ostomate will ease your emotional pain due to having this ostomy. There are so many attractive women on here you may be surprised that a beautiful ostomate woman has been waiting just for you...her entire life! Who knows? She may want to make love to you 3+ times/day the sex will be so good! So consider dating an ostomate female. You may look to God later and thank Him, not curse Him for keeping you alive with this ostomy and be purchasing a lot of Cialis to keep up with your ostomate girl friend. Don't give up. Someone out there needs your love!!!!!
