Dating widowed women
The idea that you’re being disloyal is just that: an idea, a thought, not an emotion.
So, let yourself feel the feelings underneath that thought, without believing the thought itself.
Here is a list of some differences we’ve noticed (and we would love to hear from you about other differences or issues you might be aware of!
) 1) When you’ve lost a partner to death, there might be more tendency to romanticize her or the relationship.
If you’re in that situation, you may be facing some challenges.
(And even if you haven’t lost a partner to death, you may still find parts of this email relevant to you.) Of course, women who have been widowed face the same kinds of issues as women who are single for any other reason.
Some women whom you date might feel afraid they can never measure up to your dead partner, especially if you were together for a long time.
(Again, this can happen to women who’ve lost their partners due to breakup too – and it’s perfectly normal.This can make it harder to grieve the relationship in a realistic way, and therefore can also make it harder to truly be ready to date again. It can feel harder to feel completely resolved about whatever challenges you and your partner faced, now that you know you can never speak to her again in physical form.
