Yes this reached me.  I try to stay positive and count my blessings for having had such a long (39 yr), loving relationship as I know many people who have not.  I know people who are divorced and constantly focus on what their ex is doing.  I know it is hard for us, because we lost our partners, but at least I am not bitter.  I am looking ahead.  Hugs,

I know how you feel about being shut out by friends as I had the same experience. I have posted a few timing about on line dating so will give you my perspective. I set up a profile with a pseudo name and email address just to protect myself. I know you get hundreds of responses and guys outside my area I just deleted. I was on and did start meeting men for coffee. I never gave out my phone number even when they asked for it 'just in case' we didn't find each other at the coffee shop. I never gave them my real name either. In the end I did meet someone that I have been seeing for 9 months now. 3 other widows I know also met men on that they are in happy relationship with.

Welcome Dogwoods in bloom 7: I'm sorry for your loss but I'm glad you found your way to this site. I hope you will find the same comfort and understanding here at Widowed Village that I have. In the beginning I just read the blogs and posts and lurked in chat.You can join the Groups that fit you to connect to others with similar experiences.  Post and join in chat when you feel comfortable. It is nice to be among people who "Get It".
