Hi everyone..I just joined this site. I know there have been other posts on this topic but does anyone have any sites they know of besides C is for Cancer? Does this site have a section for survivor dating..or even just one for making friends in your area? I don't really have any friends who are survivors in my area and I'd love to acquire some. And back the dating thing..it is so hard to find a girl who is around my age and has the maturity and appreciation for life that a survivor has. I feel like I would be so much better off dating survivors.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know of any websites. but I definitely understand where you're coming from. None of my friends have had cancer,so no one can relate. or understand me.
My dad had cancer 4 years ago,so he understood but there's some things I just don't talk to him about.
How old are you?
I'm 21 and have dated 26/27 year olds and even then, the maturity still isn't there. And again, if they haven't gone through it they don't understand. And it makes it tough. Whenever I mention the "c" word it seems that makes the guys run.

Thank you both for your responses. Angie, I am 23. I am still trying to get used to this site..I am unfamiliar with the chat feature but I'll explore it after this post. Just an update..I tried Cancermatch and that site is seriously lacking. There weren't many people on the site in my entire state..but also the users are middle age and even senior citizens. Makes me feel old haha. Ok I'm going to explore this site now and see about the personal messages and chats and all that.

Thanks again to the both of you..I am really glad to hear back from someone.

You should try stupidcancer.com it's a great place to connect with other young people who are going through what you're going through. There's a couple forums on relationships/dating.
