Wow. CD-89, it sounds to me like he wasn't a good catch anyway, by which I mean I think he's a horrible person and should feel horrible. Tabicat's guy just seems like he's overthinking it, or a wimp. Either way, he needs to man up.
I can understand, to some extent, how difficult it can be to live with and care about
someone with Crohn's... but my friends and family seem to be getting along just fine, and I'm certainly doing okay mentally. As difficult as it may be to live with us, they're not the ones pooping 50 times a day. If they can't see that and set aside their mental discomfort, then they're not worthy of the title "Significant Other."
I don't know if it gets better, as my own dating experience is negligible, but I do know that Crohnies are some of the strongest people in the world. If anyone can overcome such blatant disregard, it's us. Also, the number of good-hearted people far exceeds the number of selfish idiots, so I'd say odds are good that it will improve.
