Wish I had some ideas for you...AND me. I'm at a loss. Have been for years.
Just yesterday I was listening to a syndicated radio show. The male DJ's were talking about how they just don't want to think about girls doing anything in the bathroom except for fixing their hair & putting on their makeup. "Gas?! Girls don't have gas and don't do THAT kind of stuff EVER and that's that!" Funny for radio but still hard to hear for the single gal with Crohn's.

I almost replied yesterday, but no one had responded yet and I wanted to see what others said first. I was having problems before meeting my husband but wasn't diagnosed until after we'd been married for about 3 years (took me 8 years for a dx). He is very good about it, for the most part, especially since he has a bad back and we are both "handicapped." Makes him more understanding.
But, I read somewhere once what % of people get divorced after getting the Crohn's dx (don't remember what % - it's been several years) and I remember telling him how horrible it was that their spouses would leave them due to Crohn's. Then, when I was in my biggest flare, wouldn't eat and weighed 120 lbs (I'm 5'11), he was so scared and so stressed that he told me he could now understand why the statistics were what they were...he said it was so hard to see me like that. But, that was 5 years ago and we are still together and plan on being forever. So, you just have to wait to find the right person. Finding one with their own health problems make them a lot more understanding. =)
