A guy that I really like asked me out, and I said no. I've been diagnosed with cancer, and I don't want him to go through this with me. I feel terrible, it broke my heart to refuse, but I like him too much to see him suffer. He knows that I'm sick, so was I right to say no or was I selfish? Should i have given him a chance? Thank you.

I don't think you are. If anything, you're shorting yourself. I don't know what kind of cancer you have, or what your chance of survival is, but let's just assume you might be dead in 5 years. You're passing up the chance to have a great five years, just to spare him the pain of seeing you go through this and losing you.
You won't hear me say this to a woman almost ever, but that's a rather selfLESS thing to do.
My opinion: talk to him, tell him everything, and see what he says. You never know. And if you've got a chance for some great memories before you move on to whatever you believe in, shouldn't you take that chance?0

you have to do what is right for you. if he wishes to help and support you that could be a good thing for you but just explain to him why you don't want a relationship and look after yourself. if he cares for you he will respect how you feel and just be there for you if you need it0
