That makes him a dbag? Cancer is some scary shit... How would you handle it?? "Ooh that sucks.."... Here is some sympathy? I'd probably do the same and make a joke to lighten the mood. Obviously if OP's boyfriend is just finding this out - it hasn't been too serious thus far. Give him a break.
#57 sure i can understand that, i would also try crack a joke to try lighten the mood but i don't know if i would of said that! To me it seems a bit insensitive!maybe he said it due to nervousness from the situation but he could also be one of those few assholes that are being genuinely serious!
I don't get why he is a dbag... It seems like a perfectly fine response, as it is tough to say something that will mean something, so sometimes you need a joke instead. Now than before someone decides to jump on me screaming about insenativity I am also a cancer survivor, so shocker I might know what I am talking about. Ta ta For Now.
Well, did you? Just kidding, don't worry, he was probably trying to make light of the situation.
I was thinking something along those lines... What OP said would be rather shocking news, the guy probably had no idea how to react to the situation. What were you expecting him to say, OP? "Oh my God, I'm so sorry that happened to you! Please, tell me your needs so I can fulfill them!"? Might seem harsh, but you kinda sound like you were expecting him to pity you.
