Dating a widow with young children
So while my pals were busy planning weddings or preparing to have kids, I was setting up a scholarship fund in my husband's memory and trying to figure out what to do with his clothes.I'd occasionally meet elderly widows -- my grandmother's friends mostly.
For others, it can take much longer to feel ‘normal’ again.
But, they'd usually kindly excuse themselves moments later. While it was kind of them to do so, I wasn't all that interested. Do I blurt out "I'm Amy and I'm a widow" right up front to see if they're still interested in dating me?
Or do I wait until the third date to give them the big reveal?
Your complicated social life will grow less awkward with time.
And although it feels like no one understands, there are other young widows out there who know what you're going through.
Everyone is different, and no two people will experience grieving in the same way.
