Dating service for cancer patients
The type of man I meet aren't the type that would worry about such things.it is never the reason why things don't go further. I can't see any reason why someone in our age group would not date a cancer survivor. (from someone who HAS crossed that street) I would really have to evaluate the situation if it ever came up in my life again.
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.
I went through my divorce and spent my time..12 years..raising my kids and getting better.
But then there are those who say "no problem" and think they mean it, but then can't or won't deal with the emotional and physical consequences when the cancer becomes active.
High blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol levels are rampant in our age group. Would really need to consider this decision long and hard.
Does he handle stress well, get plenty of rest and exercise, and pay attention to his diet? And yes, we should all be open and upfront about such issues.
After my surgery, I checked my email and found one from him. To those who are considering whether to date a cancer survivor, please think carefully.
He said he did not want to see me anymore because he couldn't take my "clingy neediness." I almost fell on the floor. You will hurt them more than you know if you can't be supportive when their cancer recurs. I was diagnosed at 11 with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
I would burst into tears now and then after my diagnosis.
