Dating after the death of your spouse

Rated 4.24/5 based on 806 customer reviews

I was the first person to know that my 40-year-old husband Shawn was going to die. His doctor told me as I sat alone in a windowless office with a photo of a flower on the wall.

This is likely to take time and the ability to mentally move on.Aside from the emotional issues that come with letting go and moving on, it's common to experience some anxiety over dating again after what may be many years of being coupled.It's normal to worry that you won't know how to meet a new partner or that you won't know how to act on a date.Perhaps finding a companion to share dinners or other activities (minus the intimacy) might be the choice that feels best to you right now.As time goes by and you feel ready to start dating, you may still feel unsettled about dating someone new.
