Don't wait too long but like date 3 or 4 so they get a sense of who you are and won't just reject you on the first date because it complicates things. He married two more times after he stopped being abusive. I'd be hesitant to start dating anyone with serious health problems. Even when I was nowhere even close to surgery I was getting symptoms that put a lot of strain on us. If my husband had something like this happen to him, I would stay with him.I suggest you move slow and show your personality a bit before you disclose your condition if you can. So, I don't think the bag cramped his style one bit. I'm sorry about your surgery and everything, OP. It is difficult just dealing with that and more than once I thought she was thinking about leaving. Then my condition just plummeted back in December..here we are. But if I met a guy and he had that, I think I would be grossed out and it would be a complete turn off.In fact, I used to hope that it would be a filtering device to keep the jerks at bay… Anyhow, I have had such luck in the dating scene with an ostomy that I began to wonder why.Over the years, I’ve just kind of figured it’s been because I’ve always been so positive about it.
As I walked past a small group of picketers, I got called over: Obviously, I stopped to explain.
Lo and behold, I received a message from the UO contact form a few hours later reading: I spent 5 minutes explaining to this guy and a group of his comrades that I shit in a bag (and showed it to them), yet he still managed to check out my website and fill out the contact form just to hit on me. Have I had a hard time finding a guy at all because of it? Since those years, I’ve been asked out multiple times, dated around, and actually been in relationships with a solid number of guys.
(Don’t worry, I responded with a gracious reply, thanking him for checking out the website.) I often get asked if I’ve ever had a problem dating with an ostomy. Having an ostomy had never once gotten in the way of forming relationships at all.

Earlier this afternoon I was walking along Bay St., here in Toronto, after speaking to a group about Uncover Ostomy.
