My partner has UC so I am lucky that he completely understands. I dont worry about
the wind, the bloating, the toilet noises, because he has periods when he has all this too. He has even seen me with poop all over my naked bum. I didnt know of course and we laugh about
it now. I didnt have my crohns diagnosed when I met him, but I knew he had UC. I spent the first 4 months of my relationship with him whilst he was in a flare. It never put me off him, I just accepted it.
But I do understand, I would certainly be shy with a new man, I would be worried it would put him off. But there are good men out there (I have one of them). If a man is worth his salt he will accept you as you are, and love you more because of it. The right one will be worth waiting for. It took me 4 years of dating after my divorce before I met Mr Right
