Cancer survivor singles dating
In my defense, he had asked me why I was still single if I’ve lived in this area my entire life.
I felt as though I would be lying if I didn’t mention this to him, because, after all, I’ve been dealing with leukemia in some form or another for the past five years.In fact, Kairol Rosenthal writes in that date number four is the rule, unless your cancer is visible or you have a “tell-all personality”: “Why reveal your cancer on the first or second date to someone you don’t know, don’t trust, and may not see again?By the fourth date you may know if you want to continue seeing the other person.Whenever someone brought up the topic of dating after cancer in my young adult support group, I admit that I only half listened. “I’m not shy about sharing my cancer experience.” Here I am now, older, wiser and a little bit lost.Since my group doesn’t meet for several more weeks, I delved into the world of on-line cancer support.
As Zmuda suggested, it is a matter of meeting the right person…cliché, I know.
