As a follow-up to our article, here are more thoughts on navigating the often tricky waters of dating someone who is beginning to date after grieving the untimely loss of their partner or spouse – from Members of our own Widow/Widowers community here on e Harmony Advice, in their own words.
At e Harmony, we know that dating after bereavement can be challenging, which is why we really take the time to get to know you and what you’re looking for in a new relationship.
You can always dip your toe in the dating pool and take it out again if it doesn't feel right.
Other WAY members can provide an invaluable source of advice and a sounding board for people who feel ready to start venturing out into the dating world again.
Emotional energy, kindness, humour and adaptability are just a few of the dimensions that we take into consideration, so you can sure you’ll be introduced to people who feel the same way you do when it really counts.
If you’re considering dating again, choosing an online dating website or app that caters to widows and widowers is a great way to start exploring the idea.
