What I mean is that if one had a happy marriage that ended with one person dying, one might wonder if the person would approve of the person one is dating. ” When you begin to date a widow(er), keep in mind that it is completely natural for people to compare things.

If the person truly is ready to begin again with someone new they will make room for you in their heart.

How can I help a widow/widower get through their pain and feelings of loss?

Also, if the person was terminally ill and that illness took a long time to run it’s course, the widowed person may have done a lot of grieving prior to the actual occurrence of death and might be ready to date earlier than ‘the experts’ predict.

For me, it was 18 months before I considered dating again.

I didn’t really feel ready to date until I had worked through the pain and feeling of loss.” “The best advice I have here is to ask the widowed person, “How can I be there for you?

” Realize that at some points the widowed person might need space, and don’t take that personally.

No one else can tell you what you are feeling, so only by being in touch with your own emotions can you know if you’re ready.

Everyone mourns differently, so widows/widowers must be careful not to let other people dictate the speed of their recovery.”“Too many variables to say what is right for anyone the old year thing is probably wise as a minimum. I didn’t quite make the 1 year wait to date thing…and I made a mess, I think I will use 5 years to remarry as a minimum.“This is variable, and having been married to a widower, been widowed and later marrying another widower as well as encountering several men on the widow/widower board, I have noticed that men seem to be ready earlier than women.

One is ready to date again whenever solitude gives way to loneliness.

It is natural to want a partner, but the partner is not a substitute.“One should wait until THEY feel they are ready.

How long does a widow/widower typically wait to start dating again? I was lonely for several years before my husband died.
