However, when you find a guy that not only understands what you are going through, but then goes a huge step forward and offers to cook you dinner... hold onto him and don't let him get away!! This past Saturday I enjoyed a fine dining experience like none I've ever experienced before. Prosciutto wrapped asparagus and champagne to start, brussels sprouts, baked sweet potato fries, pork chops, and wine for dinner, sorbet and fruit for dessert. Hands down the best date of my life so far. And I'm not just saying that because I told him I'd give him the link to this site and he'll eventually read this. I swear.
But the real reason I'm sharing this story with you, is because this guy has a great sense of humor and put together this little comic that I thought was hilarious and I think you all would appreciate as well. Sometimes being so restricted gets me down, but things like this make it a lot easier to deal with.
Apologies if you are sensitive to some of the language in this comic.
In this situation, I was up front right away about the Crohn's and the diet and all of that. It just all came out on our first date and as it turns out, he has IBS. He does not eat a restricted diet, and I would never tell anyone else how to eat, he's a grownup and can make his own decisions. I will however continue to be a good role model and if he makes lifestyle changes of his own then I think that's awesome. It's a running joke in my family that all of our conversations turn to shit, well I finally found the guy that I can talk shit to and he won't even mind. I think I've got a keeper here... :)
