Dating a widow with young children too soon
From what they tell me, dating a widower isn’t easy. They might also feel worried about other people’s perceptions. Physical reminders–mementos, personal effects, wedding pictures are difficult to see around the house. In any other situation, finding a mate is all happiness, but with a widower, it can be tempered with guilt.
That’s not easy to do if his late wife’s clothes are still hanging in her closet.In fact, it felt nice to think about meeting new people and feeling appreciated as a woman.The idea of having adult conversations over a glass of wine or a nice dinner was appealing.So sharing my heart on this subject is probably one of the harder things I’ve opened up about since being widowed.But I don’t write about things because they make me comfortable.
