If you find yourself in a relationship with a widower, then creating dialogue is essential.

Make sure you let it be known that talking about his wife who passed is completely normal and encouraged.

Whatever you do, don’t let others tell you you’re moving too fast or waiting too long.

Make sure it’s something you’re really ready to try before taking that step. But five months was when I felt ready to at least test the dating waters.

I started dating five months after my late wife died. And thought it took a few dates to get the hang of things, I have no regrets about dating that soon. Make sure you’re dating for the right reasons If you feel like dating again, take some time to understand why you want to date again.

It can bring out feelings of guilt, betrayal from the person dating again.

My mother and I were the only family members to attend the wedding. That doesn't mean the old relationship between the father and the son will have to be weakened, but there is a very real chance that it will be, so anxiety over that possibility is not crazy talk. My only answer is: you'll know you're ready when it happens.
