Dating a newly widowed man
I have always dreamed of the the man that would steal my heart and this man is definitely "it" for me : O) I told him once that he is NOTHING that I ever expected, but EVERYTHING that I'd ever dreamed of and I am excited about our future together.Having never been married, this is all new and exciting to me.
His wife of 26 years died June of this year of a brain tumor.As things are becoming more serious, we have begun to talk about marriage.I am a 32 year old woman who has never been married.My widower and his wife had a wonderful 18 year marriage and I know that the grieving process was a difficult one, and still continues to the this day.In dating and getting to know my W, I have come to love and cherish him and his children.I just read your book “Why He Disappeared” and really appreciated the great info.
I have not “lost” the guy I’ve been dating for the past 3 months, but I need to fix some of the mistakes I was starting to make. and 1 in Oct.) when we saw each other on Saturday and Sunday (but no sleepover) we have only seen each other once a week.
It is healthy to go through a normal grief process and dating.
Grief can be a very long process and has many different stages.
He’s a recent widower (wife died of cancer in June 2010.) We started dating just after Labor Day. We live about an hour and 1/2 apart and he has a very high level job and a big house to take care of (and a dog.) There has been no sex yet but lots of “foreplay.” He says he always waits to have sex until he’s more sure of the woman.
I want to see more of him at this point (3 months,) especially on Saturday nights.
I made that need known last weekend in a calm, rational way.
