That's so strange because I did that, too! When I ended my long term relationship (ALSO due to an internet thing!) I lost weight, had fewer bouts, and had more energy. Then I got into a new relationship and over the next year the IBS came back, but thankfully not as bad. It's like the more comfortable I got, the more IBS bouts I got. Weird, huh? I'm still in that relationship now and I have to say it's done wonders for my self esteem.
