Death of a spouse and dating
I started dating five months after my late wife died. And though it took a few dates to get the hang of things, I have no regrets about dating that soon.
If you feel like dating again, take some time to understand why you have this desire.
Constantly talking about the past may make it seem like you're not ready to move on and start a new relationship.
Dating isn't a therapy session—it's an opportunity to spend time with someone else and enjoy their company.Grieving and the process of moving on is something that's unique to each person.Some people take years, others weeks, and then there are those who choose never to date again.Besides, your date will have a more memorable night if it's about him or her rather than about everything you're going through.When I started dating again, it had been seven years since I had gone out with anyone other than my wife.
