Dating for widow
If the person you're considering dating decides she or he isn't sure or ready, they need more space and time to recover from their loss." "When I was ready to start dating again after being widowed, I made it clear that I didn't want to speak about my late husband.
Try to put yourself in their place." It may be that you notice that your new partner does certain things in the same way their late spouse did, even if they don't like or realise they are doing it.
A study conducted in 1996 found that, by 25 months after a spouse's death, 61% of widowers (men) were either remarried or in a new romance compared to just 19% of widows (women), but this is by no means a case of 'one size fits all'.
Patience is therefore of the essence in the early days of dating, as both you and your new partner will be trying to weigh up if this is a road you are ready to go down.
There's no real closure, especially if the death was sudden.
Accept those nuances as a part of your prospective (or current) partner's life, and you'll really be appreciated for your efforts." Above all, understand that this relationship simply can't be compared to any other, and therefore all the usual dating 'rules' are out the window.
