Dating and cancer recovery
« on: November 07, 2018, 10:20:44 am »
I just finished my last round of chemo. I’m 27 years old and have been away from the dating scene for the past 5 years as I’ve been undergoing cancer treatment. I’m still wearing a wig, but my hair should start to grow in soon now that I’m done with chemo. I am super nervous about approaching dating as I have not dated anyone since I got diagnosed with cancer. I am worried that if I start dating, I am eventually going to have to tell my date about my cancer and I’m worried he won’t accept me for my physical appearance. I feel like someone in the cancer community would understand me, but I don’t even know how to get back into the dating world as I’ve been removed from it for a while.
 Can any cancer patients or survivors speak to this?
Is there an online dating platform for the cancer community that I can utilize?

If a guy doesnt accept you for your physical appearance then the heck with him! You are being brave by puting yourself out there, and you should continue to do so. If he is really meant to be then he will like you no matter what. Anyone that invested in looks is not worth any time. Just keep doing you and be strong. Good things will come!

Thanks I really need to learn more self love, cancer has made me so much stronger in some senses, but not in that department yet. I guess I'll have to work on that!

Love that advice Kelly! You know your worth, so don't settle. If he doesnt appreciate your story and your strength he isn't worth it.
