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 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.C is for Cupid lets members complete at profile for others to view and it is up to them to decide how much personal medical information to reveal.And the private messaging system and mailboxes allow members to pursue relationships--friendship, companionship, or romantic--without sharing detailed information about themselves, such as a personal e-mail address, until they are ready.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.
However, these concerns should not keep you from pursuing relationships.
Founded by a cancer survivor in 2007, "C is for Cupid" is one of the first, and few, online dating services designed specifically for people whose lives have been affected by cancer.
The service is free, run by a handful of cancer survivors, and aimed at providing a comfortable and fun environment for members to connect with others who can "relate." As of March 2009, there are more than 1,000 members.
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.
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.
