Dating again after the loss of a spouse
So, here is my attempt to articulate what it feels like to love again after you have been devastatingly heart broken.
It's my observation that men generally start dating before women because of loneliness.He said that doesn't really take anything away from the second marriage, it is just different. In his case, each had almost grown children which creates a set of problems he wasn't used to, but they took wonderful trips, spent a lot of good time together. I'm not the basket case I was nowadays, but of course my life partner is gone and frankly I'm pretty lonely. I wondered what others' experiences are/ were in this situation. I have not been in this situation, but I can cite my mother's experience. Not that women don't get lonely, but I think they turn to their friends in a way that men do not.On the other hand, I wish I had a dollar for every newly-widowed man who began dating, then abruptly broke it off because he felt guilty. it's important not to hurry and remarry too soon, because your judgment is not as sharp as it will be later on.
