Widowed Village is a public forum. Your
anonymity is protected mostly by your choice of a username that
doesn't reveal your true identity to Google.
These open conversations provide great comfort and terrific information for the vast number of widowed visitors who never join our service. They can provide a window of insight into our world for organizations and professionals who serve widowed people. And often, the best conversations happen in open air among folks who are learning about each other equally.
Our forums are divided into these types of conversation:
There may be some situations where you may feel the need to be a bit more private -- where you don't want Google to index or find your words. For those conversations, we have added private discussions, which are hosted by a few Widville Groups.

Why isn't there a forum for people of my age?
We have found that inclusive conversations are the most useful in terms of connecting us as a community.
However, we can also gain powerful validation, support, and friendship from those who share important details, particularly parenting status. Therefore, Widville also includes Groups so that you can identify other members who may be similar to you, such as those with similar losses, losses in the same year, those with similar parenting situations as you, and those of your age and gender.
Groups are a good place to find new friends, and you can message freely among each other even without being Widville friends.
