It made us laugh. It made us cry. Then earlier this year, we met a real life Fault in Our Stars couple who lived and loved to the fullest before passing away just five days apart. Falling in love and dating is hard enough, but can you imagine the added stress and heartache of loving someone with a fatal illness? The uncertainty of it all, never knowing if this day may in fact be your last day together.
Dating someone with terminal illness
I Married a Man With Terminal Cancer—And We Lived a Beautiful Love Story - Her View From Home
Till Death Do Us Part is a new free dating site that purports to connect people with terminal illnesses. I don't think it's a joke, but the creator is all about a sense of humor, quoting Robert Anton Wilson on the front page: It seems absurd. We're dealing with people who know they are facing imminent death. They are aware that their days are numbered and they know, more or less, how long they have to live. 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.
Would You Date/Marry A Terminally Ill Person?
Like so many Gen Xers, I'd spent a decade putting hopeful profiles up on dating websites. Paying for eHarmony from time to time. Answering messages and hoping against hope.
If it were t for the big C I wouldn't be with my boyfriend now. It's hard to leave someone so supportive. Not saying I don't love him because I do. Just in the bigger picture of things we aren't the perfect match.
