I was wondering if anyone has any advice on this? I find it really hard to 'date' with my ibs, if we go out for a meal I always have to rush to the toilet after, and can sometimes spend quite a while in there, which is obviously quite embarrassing, I always end up saying 'there was a queue' or 'someone phoned me'.
It's not really something I'm comfortable telling people on a first date, infact even my ex who I was with 7 months did not actually know I had ibs, as I tried to keep it hidden, making excuses all the time!
Maybe it would be good to meet someone with similar problems to myself, so it would be less embarrassing as they would know what I was going through too....
Anyone got any suggestions?
