Two widows dating
Widowers Will Stay in Relationships with Women They Don't Love Because widowers have a strong desire to be in a relationship, they will get serious with women they don't really love.Most widowers are just happy to have a woman in their life again.However, widowers who aren't serious about starting over with you can only fake these relationships for so long.Sooner or later, the doubts that have been nagging them since they first became serious with you will overwhelm their desire for companionship.Once they reach that point, those widowers who still have a shred of manliness in them will tell you the relationship isn't working out and end it.Soon after I started dating, I became serious with a woman I'll call Jennifer.
When we were together, I couldn't see myself marrying or having a family with her.
We were friends before I was married to Krista, and after her death, we reconnected.
I flirted with her, started dating her, and eventually told her I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her.
Finally, I gave in to the feelings and signed up with an online dating site and went on my first widower date a few weeks later. We fell in love and were married 15 months after Krista died. And while there's nothing wrong with dating months or weeks after a spouse dies, most widowers who start dating again are still grieving the loss of their spouse.
(As I write this, we're a month shy of celebrating our eighth anniversary.)It wasn't until after I remarried and started researching how men grieve that I realized my desire to date again so soon after Krista's death was natural. They're not emotionally ready to make long-term or serious commitments to the women they're dating.Krista gave my arm a squeeze and told me she felt the same way.
