Dating for singles with cancer
That would not be ethical of course—but I bet I would be successful in pairing some of them up . Dating these days seems to start with an online membership to one of the many dating websites out there.
I told him I used to be shier than I am now, that I haven’t ever worked in an environment conducive to meeting single men, and then I put it all out there, the single most pertinent reason for my absence from the dating scene: I’m a two-time cancer survivor.
I think that your illness is more in the forefront of your mind than it would be in a potential mate/date. I once dated a cancer survivor...every single flippin' chance he got he would refer to himself as a "transplant body"! This isn't the reason we're no longer together but it sure was annoying.
Sure there is a chance of recurrence and that may be something to be concerned about but who is to say the next person you date is not about to become seriously ill. Maybe I should have starting introducing him as my boyfriend, "the Transplant Body"...?
Should a person be upfront about any illness they may have had that could be an issue in the future? For me..dating someone that was ill.becomes ill after we've started a relationship is not the deciding factor of that date/relationship.
It's all the things inside that person that makes the difference for me. Their are plenty of others that will date the man.the illness.
