Are you single and hoping to meet someone, but are also dealing with a digestive issue like irritable bowel syndrome? Fear not, there's a new app aimed at helping people with digestive disorders connect.
The Doctors welcome Phil Beesley, creator of the Gutsy dating app, to discuss what inspired him to create the app. He shares he suffered from IBS for 19 years and felt that dating was already stressful enough, and then adding on his digestive hurdles made the process "just terrible." He says he was inspired to create the app after hearing numerous stories from other people with IBS, Crohn's disease and colitis in online support groups about their dating dilemmas, like having to retreat to the restroom unexpectedly for long periods of time.
Phil also notes that digestive issues can worsen under the stress of dating. He shares, "With Gutsy, we are truly trying to put 2 people together that are in the same situation, so they can understand each other from day 1 and take the embarrassment and anxiety out of it."
In the U.S. alone, 25 to 45 million people suffer from IBS, which can include abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea and bloating.
The Doctors note this app can also be helpful for people who have undergone bowel surgery and see the opportunity other dating apps aimed at specific medical issues.
