Being a young widow and dating

What you might see as attraction may just be his way of having some companionship and he may not be ready to move further.2. Okay, maybe I'm old fashioned but when I get emails that talk about a long-term relationship and getting serious before basic dating has even begun, well I wonder about the person's intentions. The widow/widower is going through a rough time and jumping 10 steps ahead isn't going to help either one of you.3. This is such a popular topic that I have to talk about it.I received one email recently that it 'bothered' the person that widower had a picture of his late wife in his house.On the other hand, if you find the widow/widower is constantly talking about their late spouse, then he/she may not be ready to date and you may just want to consider a friendship.My dad died when I was young and my stepfather never told my mom to not talk about him, visit the cemetery or take pictures down. He understood the situation and realized that my dad wasn't going to come back into the picture.5. If children are involved, they may still be grieving and even though their mom/dad has a new boyfriend/girlfriend doesn't mean that the children are going to be so accepting. It's an adjustment for the children and it needs to be respected.
