Datingwithcancer com why interracial dating is good

Not that I couldn't have dated a Korean man, but since, for me, the most important part of a relationship is deep communication, the language barrier kept my dating options focused on those in my transient (and often incestuous) expatriate community.This to say that cancer was not my biggest dating obstacle.When my melanoma spread to a local lymph node (stage 3) and I had to undergo intensive radiation, I kept it largely under wraps.I continued to live my life as normal, with occasional flings and rarer romantic beginnings that petered out after a few weeks.

My motto is “go with the flow”…well, more specifically, my e-mail tagline is “When you come to a fork in the road, take it” (Yogi Berra). I ended up telling a guy over a text last night that I’m a two-time cancer survivor.In my defense, he had asked me why I was still single if I’ve lived in this area my entire life.He asked this in a teasing way, but when I read it, my heart sank.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.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.
