If you are a young widower thinking about dating again you need to realize grieving takes time, no one is the same we all take different times to recover from the loss of a love one. Some people may not like you dating someone else especially your spouse’s family especially if his family or friends find out. Your family or his might still be grieving and consider your decision wrong to start dating again.
Make sure you are not too lonely and desperate, so lonely that you make the wrong decisions that you end up dating and staying with the wrong person. It is important to have the strength to enter a new relationship as well as walking away from a relationship if it is not working out for you.
You may feel guilty about seeing someone else, you need to consider how your husband or wife would feel about you seeing someone else would they want you to move on after their departure?
No one is going to possibly match up to your lost partner. You shouldn’t make comparisons. It is OK to talk about your deceased husband or wife, it is best not to talk about them all the time. You do not want your deceased husband or wife to become a sore subject.
It is important to get to know your date, see how they are around other people such as his or her family before you introduce them to your kids or family.
It is important to take your time and not rush in to things too fast. If you have the new man or woman move in too soon you need to consider it might not be such a fast process to get them out.
It is important to remember that you are an attractive proposition, you more than likely have not had relationship problems, and you are looking for a new relationship due to bereavement. You will have some issues such as getting over your loss and getting used to being with someone else.
You never know you might be able to meet someone who has been through similar circumstances as yourself and you can work through things together.
