Widow dating advice
Unlike in case of a breakup, a widow has no reason to put away the memories of what may well have been a loving and fulfilling marriage.
Thus she may feel rushed and hurt if you insist on doing away with memories of her past.
Ask questions about the wife/husband, how long did the marriage last, how long has he/she been a widow/widower.
Some widow/widowers say that dates who ask them about their departed spouse say made it easier for them.
Losing a spouse is one of the most horrible things anyone could experience in life.
Also use words with care around her, for instance don’t talk of the “baggage” she brings to the relationship.
It is no different than dating anyone else with a few exceptions.
Each person is unique and the love they had for their late-love should always be a part of them.
It is healthy to go through a normal grief process and dating.
Grief can be a very long process and has many different stages.
