hello Leah, my names Neil. I have tried internet dating for a bit over 2 years, however this was mainly on general dating sites not specific ostomate dating sites. I found with the general site you were unable to be honest because of the limited boundaries the sites had in place. You were not given any choices about the type of ostomy you had or any medical issues. So this made it difficult. The 2 years I was trying were not completely pointless i did go on one date and have a phone conversation. Though i would say most people on the previous site i tried were not serious enough or had man hating issues, honestly that was very common. I did get mainly no's from most of the Women I was hoping to contact and very little interest in return. My next step is trying to meet someone in the same situation, ie , with a stoma bag. I figure at least I'm being more honest about myself. At the same time I am a bit cautious because of the experiences with the internet from my previous dating efforts. Good luck!!!
