Dating after loss of wife
It's okay to talk about your deceased spouse, but set boundaries.Answer questions he or she may have about your marriage, but don't spend all your time talking about your deceased spouse, or how happy you were with him. And, he or she might make you incredibly happy for years to come.
I started dating again about a year after my husband died.
I learned that by doing the things I enjoy I might meet someone special.
And, one evening at a Phillies game, I was very lucky to meet a wonderful man, who has become very special to me.
Some people take years, others take weeks, and then there are those who choose never to date again.
If a person was terminally ill, and the illness took a long time to run its course, the widowed person may have done a lot of grieving prior to the actual death and might be ready to date earlier than the “experts” predict.
