I know that this is not a dating website. However, I have a tough time relating to nonsurvivors in a dating situation. The best relationship I ever had was with a fellow cancer patient. Sadly, she lost her battle and is no longer with us. I am 30, from GA, and looking for the love of my life.

You know, I think there actually is a dating website aimed specifically at people with/who've had cancer... I can go find the url if you'd like.

I am new to this website, but actually got on looking for other young survivors and some male survivors to possibly start dating again. I'm from GA also, I live in metro Atlanta.

Also, your dog is adorable...I'm a huge dog lover! Mine has helped me get through this whole cancer thing!

Check out 'C is for Cupid' - I think the url is cisforcupid.org, but it's specifically a 'dating site for cancer survivors.' I'm on there, have had some great discussions and sharing. I can relate, I had dated a woman for 9 mos, and she was great about it at the start and most of that time. I told her everything before we were involved, and really she is a well-meaning person who doesn't get scared off by cancer. But by about month #8, she started asking things like 'how many more of these follow-up appts. do you have?' and I said 'the rest of my life.' So she really wasn't in it for the long haul. I mean, what would she have done if I'd had a recurrence, which is considered very unlikely? -Eric

I have come to the conclusion that I need to either date guys who are survivors, or who are several years older than me... doesn't seem like guys my age can handle the idea of cancer (even though I think I do a pretty good job of keeping the burden low!). I also looked at the c is for cupid site but they didn't even have an option for DC... I would love to meet other girls to strategize with, too! My friends really don't get this! Anyone in DC??

We are going to have to do something about our situation. I'd bet that there's many more of us. Please feel free to contact me.

I know exactly how you feel. From a female perspective it's just as hard on our end. Guys hear the "C" word and go running. I hope things go better for you (I realize this post is old but good wishes never age :) )

I recently came upon a website for young adult cancer patients and survivors. Check out stupidcancer.com and all of their Facebook groups. I'm going to one of their happy hours in NYC and am excited to meet other survivors my age. It sucked not having anyone anywhere close to my age when I was in treatment. Good luck!! Lily

This is the first time across another Indian in this group. I was diagnosed with cancer 2 years ago, and surgically treated. Till now no recurrence. I like to have many friendships with other survivors in India and other countries

I hope that you have been able to find someone that you can connect with. I am also looking for that kind of a connection. I was dating a guy before I was rediagnose and things have changed a lot. Hopefully C is for Cupid will actually work. It hasn't any time I've been on it so I can't connect with people like I want.

Good Luck with Everything! Good Vibes!

i am 18 years old. i know how dificult it is finding that someone. i think it would just be easier to date someone who also had/has cancer because they can understand what it is/was like. i had to go through high school with kids starring at me because i had no hair and was sick. it was like they could catch it if they came near. some poeple just dont understand...

Hello everyone, I'm new here. My BF dumped me 6 months after my diagnosis. It is understandable. Though I don't want to be alone here. Now I locate in shanghai, China. Is there anyone nearby? We can do Chi Gong or Ta Qi together.

I know exactly what you mean. I've had a lot of relationships not work out mostly because of my cancer. I know it is a lot to handle and I think that dating someone who is going through the same will be a better option. I will def try out some of these sites.

If any of you girls really want a relationship with a decent guy with peripheral neurophaty please message me on the internal mail service here on CSN. It gets awful lonely...

I met an amazing guy off the cancer website while I was going through chemo but as soon as I got done and found out my counts were normal he decided not fair for me to be ok and him still sick. Broke my heart and I wonder if I will ever be "normal" enough for someone to want to love me or if I will be able to open myself up to that again. I wish everyone the best of luck, we all deserve to be happy and loved with or without our cancer.
