Hi everyone! I got divorced and then diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018 when I was 53 years old. I had a double masectomy with reconstruction (non nipple-sparing) and was fortunate enough to not have to go through chemo and radiation. My question is this--at what point do I tell someone I am dating that my breasts are not real? Does anyone have any experience with this? I'm about to go on a third date with someone I really like and am not sure how to handle this. Please help!
