Dating websites for young widows
Dating a widower or widow can oftentimes require extra sensitivity.There may be instances where - whether widow or widower - dating has to take a backseat; for example, if it's important for your partner to remember their spouse's birthday, or their anniversary, try to be understanding about this and give them a little more space.
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’.
Moving on from losing a partner is one of the hardest things a person can deal with.
As psychotherapist Hilda Burke explains, everyone's experience is different and there are no hard rules about when to move on.
Accurately remembering a lost loved one enables us to keep them in a place of honour in our hearts whilst also making space for the possibility of new love.
Whether widower or widow, dating again can bring you comfort and companionship after loss.
