Why can’t I just pass a note to a girl with the question: “Do you like me? But it’s a tough job keeping track of what you’ve said, and tougher living with whatever it was you said. As I sit here wondering what else has changed after my cancer that may affect my dating, I realized that the only thing that has really changed about me is that I no longer have pecs and nipples.

As one man to another, one breast cancer survivor to another, let me tell you: It’s been awful. I lost the weight, started working out, no more side effects.

Others tend to bring it up almost as a defense mechanism — a test to make sure the other person can handle it so they can avoid being hurt later on, Ms.
Golby explains.“For some people, the right moment is after two or three dates.
For others, it’s after two or three months,” she says. They don’t want to feel they’re hiding the cancer, but they don’t want cancer to be the first thing someone knows about them.” Before the big reveal, do a trial run with a close friend to practice what you’re going to say.
