6 years ago when I got divorced, I went on a few dates. I told the men up front about my heart condition. I did that because I didn't want to like a guy only to have him not want to date me once he found out. I told them about my myectomy too.
The few men that I met said they didn't mind my heart condition, they were far more concerned that I didn't have much money and that my ex-husband got the house and the new truck in the divorce settlement.
I could be wrong, but I think when we are honest, it weeds out the good from the bad.
Eventually I did meet and date a really nice man for 4 years, we haven't dated for 2 years, but we remain good friends.
At this point, I don't have the energy to date anymore. I focus my attention on my kids, work, and church.
I hope you find a good person.
