Dating a widower advice
Suddenly, this week, he has drawn the blinds up, and decided that he's not ready to move on after all - saying that he is constantly comparing me to his deceased DW. I have been divorced for 6 years and only had one (2 year) relationship since. ) going into a long term relationship like this are:- has he grieved?
Prior to meeting Mr Lovely Widower I did a little online dating but became slightly disillusioned after meeting so many serial daters that when I met Mr Lovely I was cautious at first, having been burnt before. This is important as he will not move on properly until he goes through that process.
He was walking over Millenium Bridge and felt a lightness that hadn't been with him for years (his wife had been ill for many years prior to her death) I hope this works out for you, but he may just need more time right now.
My partner of 10 years had been a widower for 9 years when we met and he definitely had not been ready for a relationship before that.
However I think that was more to do with being busy working and bringing up young teenagers.
I agree with the poster who said it might be coming up to an anniversary of some sort.
My partner still occasionally switches off a bit when it is a birthday, anniversary of marriage, death etc.
