Online dating cancer survivors
The best relationship I ever had was with a fellow cancer patient. "Not to long after my diagnosis, my marriage of 11 years ended, I understand being broken, I asked myself the question, how many broken pieces can I become, who would put me back together again?
Sadly, she lost her battle and is no longer with us. Mine has helped me get through this whole cancer thing! I just realize I have to live in the present moment, live in the now, become the best me right now, and not worry about what will happen in six months, or a year. I'm so lonely, I just want someone to talk to who will understand what I'm going through.
I can't believe I'm saying this, but 6 months later, I am engaged!
Is there any easy way to tell someone that you have had cancer, or at least to bring it up?
I mean, what would she have done if I'd had a recurrence, which is considered very unlikely? HOPING THAT THE SUPREME POWER GRANTS EVERY SINGLE YOUNG CANCER SURVIVOR A GOOD BROADMINDED CARING LIFE PARTNER AND LET US LIVE NORMALLY POST OUR BATTLE WITH CANCER GOD BLESS This is the first time across another Indian in this group.
-Eric I have come to the conclusion that I need to either date guys who are survivors, or who are several years older than me... From a female perspective it's just as hard on our end. I hope things go better for you (I realize this post is old but good wishes never age :) ) Lady Muse I recently came upon a website for young adult cancer patients and survivors. I'm going to one of their happy hours in NYC and am excited to meet other survivors my age. I was diagnosed with cancer 2 years ago, and surgically treated. I like to have many friendships with other survivors in India and other countries I hope that you have been able to find someone that you can connect with. I was dating a guy before I was rediagnose and things have changed a lot. It hasn't any time I've been on it so I can't connect with people like I want.
I am new to this website, but actually got on looking for other young survivors and some male survivors to possibly start dating again. I can relate, I had dated a woman for 9 mos, and she was great about it at the start and most of that time. I know that there is no set way to tell someone, let alone the perfect moment, but any advice would be much appreciated. hi peter, and sparcky, I think the sooner you mention it, the easier it will be. At any rate you have got to mention it, mind you, once you have done, who knows what she has to tell you about her (medical) past.What were your experiences with telling, or not telling? If she is really sincere about the relationship then it will not matter. take care Tom hello- my name's Kim- I just saw your posting and thought I'd write.A younger person with goals of marriage and children — and potential mates who may have had little experience with serious illness — probably has different dating concerns than an older person, whose potential partners might very well be dealing with their own health issues.Each person also has his or her own individual comfort level when discussing the disease.
I told her everything before we were involved, and really she is a well-meaning person who doesn't get scared off by cancer. i think it would just be easier to date someone who also had/has cancer because they can understand what it is/was like.
