Heyyyy glad you got back to me. Like I said your the first person I have talked to on here. My day is going ok. It's raining here today something we needed so bad. Hope your having a great day. That is if we can have a great day. Have not had one of them in a long long time. No am not a stalker. Don't know what I'd do with you if I had you lol. Am just a man who has worked hard all of his life to face this stuff all by myself at my age. Never saw it cooking. I guess am talking my head off. Just so happy to talk to someone that can relate
I've had my ileostomy since 1981, and I've done this all by myself. I get it, I really do. I made a plan for my life, that regardless of my situation, I'd be happy. I make sure to remind myself that it could be so much worse. I've had health issues all my life, and I want to live. I want to be happy just like everyone else. Having an ileostomy does not rule my heart. It's windy and cold here in Nevada. Where do you live? Let's meet again cuz I want to watch football. Tell me when...

Hi there Rene. I'm back in wet and windy Ireland again !!
My brain is still in San Francisco...and my heart. i was in Reno & Tahoe 2 weeks ago.
Hey joe sorry i cant reply your message i am not a full member yet ya see wanna see what the site.is all about haha
Dear Brown Eye Lady
Im learning that the problem isn't the Ileostomy as much as it not easy to meet people unless you try online dating. It's awkward enough to meet people online. For whatever reason I feel that it would be wrong for me to start dating someone without them knowing I have an Ostomy. Which is a hard thing to mention before you even get to know someone. I been strugging with getting back the dating scene so I can meet someone to spend the rest of my life with. But I'm putting to much stress on myself before I even try. I'm still the same guy who had my uup's and down after my Crohn's Disesse was diagnose at 19 years old. My passion for being in a loving relationship and not letting the Ilestomy,Crohn's or any other complications identify who I'am as a person. Yes it's a big part of my life and it's definity harder to meet people to date at 58 years young.
Unfortuately there are people out there that think having the High school Quarterback or Prom queen is what a loving relationship is all about. Most likely I'm going to run into people that won't want to date me after I let them know about my Crohn's disease and Permant Ileostomy. And I'm sure it will disappoint and upset me.
But afterreading your message I feel if someone going to me so shallow before they even got to know you. Then you the one to luck out. It's been just over two years since I ended a relationship after 14 years. I join this site to see if I could meet people that had an Ostomy in the Chicago,Il area. But there not that many people in my area close to my age. I'm like you a Brown eye guy looking for my brown eye girl.
I move out of my house when I was 18 year young. Up until two years ago I was always in a relationship. My Crohn's disease was an obsticle for me regarding getting married. It's was important to me not to get married until my Crohn's was under control. The next 15 years I spent two month each year either in the hospital or recovering from Surgery. Three of my operations I didn't having insurance coverage for per existing condition.
I didn't think it would be responsible to get married and have kids without being able to provide for my family. As of six months ago my Crohn's is under control. People that know me I'm either Swimming, Snorking or golfing Golf.
Please know that you have giving me that additional courage to go out and try online dating sites other then this Ostomy General information dating site. My first choice would be to meet someone from this site where we can support each other. But I know there people out there that want to connect souls and share a chemistry.
The only concerns is where to start?
Thank you and the people on this general Chat site. If anyone has any additional tips other then internet dating sites.I did join this site to learn and hopefully meet some new friends and maybe a potential partner for life.
I would greatly welcome the advice.
Hello and I appreciate the effort to pair people together. But I want to clear up any confusion. I wasn't drop by a guy or a womem. I. Left my girlfriend of 14 years because she started to tell me that I can't be friends with people that she didn't like. And was going through my cell phone to see who I was friend with. She wanted me to stop being friends with my grade school buddies. She cxld any plans and push everyone away.
She couldn't handle my health issues and the relationship was that I needed to give up on trying to find work. I left her when my friends offer to help me move versus not having a life stuck at home. I still love her back needed to have a social life.
I would love your help to meethe someone to share a life with base on supporting each other and making the life together while we try to lead a normal life. I miss having a loving partner. Any help in meeting someone would be an amazing gift. I believe living is giving.
All the best and I hope to hear back from you. I'm a fun loving guy with a great sense of humor. And I really miss having partner who like and share and support living together with the life based on happiness and the support of growing nature. Thank you again for what you do I think it's fabulous that you're helping other people who have head a difficult life with health issues that made it difficult to feel confident in dating. Hopefully I can overcome my own self imposed issues related tapping lost so my confidence due to a physical change
