I'm curious if any of the men in here would date a girl with an ostomy? I may need one in the near future, so just curious. Please be honest. Thanks.

Well, to be honest I can't answer for sure as the chances of me marrying a "girl" are pretty limited, but in general it wouldn't bother me.

Though I will also admit that I have changed and grown a great deal over the past 3 years and things that were important when I was younger, just don't seem so important now.

The person I love doesn't have the body of a **** star, and doesn't have the looks of a model, they are also sick but with another chronic illness. But when I am around that person, everything is ok, I am happy and they have become the closest friend to me in the world and they make me feel like my disease just isn't a factor in our friendship.

When I look at him, I don't see the scars and I don't see the malnourishment, I just don't see it. I see that smiling face and I thank god that they came into my life.

Although I sometimes doubt the words that I tell others, there is someone out there for everyone.

Obviously, men here would be more aware of your situation, so we're really not the best people to ask. I can honestly say it wouldn't bother me in the least, but I don't know how true that would be of someone with no understanding of this disease. In the end it's really what separates those worth your time and those who are not. If something like this would make them "run away", you couldn't expect them to be there for you for anything else either, so I say screw them. After all it's not these fragile bodies that define who we are, and all beauty is fleeting...
