In our interview with DatingNews.com, we talked about our extensive Dating Advice section. Here, we offer answers to questions that are typically asked by widows and widowers as they venture back into the world of dating and beyond.
If your partner dies, this is not something you’re likely to come to terms with quickly. Confronting grief when you lose a partner is a unique experience, and no one can tell you how to deal with it.
As we find ourselves spending more time than usual at home, we may be considering the possibility of online dating. This could be the perfect opportunity to create a dating profile that puts us in touch with others who are also finding themselves with extra time on their hands and missing the company of colleagues, friends and family.
Whether you are a widow dating a widower or any single woman considering a man who lost his wife, there are some important considerations to keep in mind.
When someone you love dies, it can feel as though part of you has died with them. The life you shared together is over and coming to terms with this hard fact can be difficult. Memories of happier times can cloud your vision and in the early days following the loss of a partner, these feelings can cause a great deal of heartache and frustration.
‘How long should a widow or widower wait before remarrying’, is question we are asked often. If you’ve been widowed, it is a topic which brings with it many important reasons to be introspective about how you’re feeling and what you want from the future.
Your first relationship after being widowed will bring with it a whole new set of possibilities. Hoping to meet someone with similar qualities to those of your late partner is to be expected, especially if you were very happy together.
Having had over fifteen years of experience helping widows and widowers return to the world of dating, we’ve built up some useful, tried and tested tips.
For a widow or widower, the thought of dating again after losing your partner will need plenty of consideration. Having intimately shared your life with someone, and with possible plans made for the future, the prospect of finding someone else to share your life with, can feel strange and unsettling.
