My male patients are often overwhelmed by the number of single women who respond, instantaneously for one of my patients, with identical “likes.” I never knew so many women were interested in hunting and fishing—or who think that men are!
My female patients report that the men they meet don’t look much like their profile photos—hair loss and 20 pounds of extra weight are often the reality of meeting in person. My patients ask me what they should do next—and having never registered a profile myself, I am not able to provide much more than common sense suggestions.
That, in itself, is a challenge for many of my older patients who are not tech-savvy or at least not comfortable with posting a picture and completing an online profile.

Julie blogs about her personal experience with leukemia and life from a patient’s perspective. She is a race walker, a dog lover, and a dedicated #bearcam watcher. I’m 32, I’m decent looking, I have a job I enjoy and family and friends I love.
