Ostomate dating sites canada
Over the years, I’ve just kind of figured it’s been because I’ve always been so positive about it.
I still wondered, though, how no guy has ever cared about my bag. A lovely girlfriend of mine, new to the Toronto dating scene, decided to sign up for the free online dating site, OKCupid.
She showed me how it worked and how she was getting some dates here and there simply from having her profile online.
I’ve always thought online dating was silly, but I thought this was the perfect opportunity to test how my ostomy would be received online. When asked why I was on the site, I answered that I was there “for the laughs.” When asked what the first thing people notice about me was, I said “I don’t know, ask them.” I also specified that guys should only message me if they had a degree and a professional career (lol) and when I was asked what the most private thing I was willing to admit was, I said “Everything. Just Google me.” I basically put up a wall saying “hello, I’m a bitch” but used my pictures to intice them to Google me to come across the ostomy. In between the ridiculous messages from guys trying to be funny (like this guy)…
So, friends, the moral of this story is that we should all be comfortable in ourselves no matter what we think is wrong with us.
I was wondering has anyone found a way of keeping that darn bag out of the way when they are having on of thier most intimate moments? From things I have read on this site the answer is no.
However, it apparently was not for the bag, but for “irreconcilable differences,” (like this guy) Despite having an extremely off-putting profile, guys still Googled me, and still asked me out. Now, I wouldn’t feel comfortable with my Masters degree if I didn’t point out the flaws in my study, which all academics must do. I wasn’t able to track how many guys viewed my profile, looked me up, and decided against contacting me because they had discovered my bag. All those guys that didn’t message me on OKCupid are the same group of guys who I would never think twice to talk to in person.
Others simply sent a messages saying they had learned something new, hoping to spark up some conversation.Earlier this afternoon I was walking along Bay St., here in Toronto, after speaking to a group about Uncover Ostomy.I was wearing my “This is where my ostomy is” tshirt without a jacket, since it was a nice 18 degrees Celsius outside. Just wanted to ask people is it really possible to date when you have a bag?People say its either to hard to tell people about the bag or they run for the hills once they find out.
