Being a young widow and dating
As the relationship ended because of a death, we can feel that it would never have otherwise ended.In that sense, it can hold an ‘eternal’ quality in our hearts and minds, with our dead partner being elevated to the position of a ‘martyr’.Do give yourself a chance – if your attempt at dating ends in tears, be kind and patient and applaud yourself for having given it a go.
Indeed, you cannot expect that every new date will be perfection but you approach them with the right frame of mind.For many widowers and widows, dating after a loss requires support and the empathetic company of people who understand the situation.
