Dating a young widow man
I don’t expect a woman I am dating, or even more seriously involved with, to “help me get through my pain and loss”, as it relates to my late wife’s passing.I should have done that prior to entering the relationship.” It’s a reasonable concern, worrying that a widow(er) will compare the next relationship to the one that came to a tragic end.After all, you or your potential partner invest time, energy and heart into their marriage and their partner was taken too soon from them.Believing that love can happen again for them or for yourself requires strength, bravery and trial-and-error.Keep in mind that it’s human nature to compare every relationship to a previous one, but that not every comparison is a bad one.

I would have been dating again within a year if I had not been in a car accident that put me out of action for nine months.
In my opinion, it is important for two people in a relationship to be strong enough that they can be a complete person to offer to another.
I do not think that someone who is in a great deal of mental pain is a good candidate for a relationship.
