Dating service for cancer patients
it's a joke, but the creator is all about a sense of humor, quoting Robert Anton Wilson on the front page: "Please pardon my levity, I don't see how to take death seriously.
It seems absurd." From the press release: is profoundly different from other dating sites.
I think that your illness is more in the forefront of your mind than it would be in a potential mate/date. I once dated a cancer survivor...every single flippin' chance he got he would refer to himself as a "transplant body"! This isn't the reason we're no longer together but it sure was annoying.
Sure there is a chance of recurrence and that may be something to be concerned about but who is to say the next person you date is not about to become seriously ill. Maybe I should have starting introducing him as my boyfriend, "the Transplant Body"...?
This service does not require members to answer the frivolous questionnaires other dating sites provide, although they can if they want to.
We are not interested, as we are sure our clients are not either, in the inane, trivial and essentially meaningless come-ons and delusional fantasies of finding the perfect mate.
But that doesn't lessen the human need for love and romance.
Enter 2date4love, a new website created by Laura Brashier, a 50-year-old cervical cancer survivor. The website is aimed toward people who cannot have sex, either due to disability, or caused by disease.
In my defense, he had asked me why I was still single if I’ve lived in this area my entire life.
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.
The type of man I meet aren't the type that would worry about such things.it is never the reason why things don't go further. I can't see any reason why someone in our age group would not date a cancer survivor. (from someone who HAS crossed that street) I would really have to evaluate the situation if it ever came up in my life again.
For example, certain cancer treatments leave patients unable to have sex.
The idea for the website comes from Brashier's own personal frustrations.
