Widowed singles dating
I loved the conversation, how easily we slipped in and out of past and present tense, how we acknowledged the fear and the reluctance to date again -- and how we realized that our growth depends on learning how to do that.
I put my preference for widowers prominently in my online dating profile. Don't judge us if we think we're ready, then realize we're not.
I later changed that, or at least softened it to "bonus points," just because it narrowed the possibilities too much. Here's why: How long does it take to be ready to date? We're not grieving for a time, then suddenly done with grief -- it's a spiral: we cycle in and out of grief.
