If you're in the dating game, 3-5 dates is nothing and the "getting to know you" phase.
For me that means I am now making a lot of friends.
I met people online and I have been upfront about the cancer. Some walked away, but many have been incredibly supportive. I know there will come a point where I will start dating again.
I’m seeing one in particular I’m actually meeting him tonight for dinner. The first thing I did was decide when I am ok dating and for me, it's not right now.
I am a bit shy and introverted and that does make it tough to date regardless, especially as I don't drink alcohol or coffee, meaning I am not someone who would "pick up" someone at a bar or coffee shops (common "date" locations).
I am also in a tough situation in my life because of a variety of factors but primarily due to cancer.
