Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... Maybe you should write a book.paid as well as laid.. Seriously.answered your own question when you stated you want a woman that lives in the here and now on your profile.
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. Or would you feel they may again become ill and you would not want to be a part of it. I know and understand the feeling of being sick (not many our ages haven't had some form of illness).the possible detriment that could bring to a relationship.
Now before we go into any of the reasons why I personally think cancer survivors should absolutely date and keep themselves open to romance, let us first clarify what a cancer survivor is.
When I was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer almost 15 years ago, this April to be exact, I was told that you are not considered a survivor until you are 5 years’ cancer free.
Today, however, you become a survivor literally the minute you are given that devastating news of having cancer in your body.
With that being said, let’s discuss why cancer survivors should be open to dating using my own foray into the dating world as an example.
Just so you can understand how bad my battle with cancer was, I was told that they did not know how effective chemo would be and that I had to get my affairs in order as soon as possible.For me the change was profound, I no longer cared about the same things I did when I married my husband, my life was all about giving back to cancer and being the voice for the young adult colon cancer survivors, who were pretty much ignored back then. This thought literally changed my whole outlook on dating.This new passion of mine, and the fact that me not having an actual right abdominal wall, made my pre-cancer dream of having more children, disappear which was the final nail in the coffin of my marriage. Feel complete and utter despair, hopelessness and loneliness? The more I thought about it, the more I convinced myself that I love me and my stitched together body.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"...?I'll take the sweet..caring..giving..honest.sick Paul over the lying..cheating..cruel.man..anyday!! I doubt I'd put a past illness on my profile..although.would be something I would discuss very soon after e-mailing and probably before meeting with a man.I have done.
