Dating a widow with kids
I want to be sure that I am getting my needs met and that I’m not just a “rebound” for him. Dear Karen, One thing I know about widowers, followed by two things I know about men.Widowers are QUICK to rebound, to a point of being unseemly.In other words, maybe others will judge them for finding happiness again.They might think, ‘Does being happy make people think I didn’t love my spouse?’ There are both physical and emotional challenges.Physical reminders–mementos, personal effects, wedding pictures are difficult to see around the house.
Okay, this may appear a little morose but I'm curious because this came up in a recent conversation... Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc. I have no trouble with kids, or divorce but having been on the wrong side of an ex husband, I believe that I would prefer to settle down or get serious with a young widow over a divorced woman with an ex husband. She will be part of my life till one of us departs this plane.Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... Here are the highlights of the discussion: In any other situation, finding a mate is all happiness, but with a widower, it can be tempered w guilt. I decided to sit down with a group of women, all who have dated a widower, and ask them about their experiences.
I made that need known last weekend in a calm, rational way.
