"I think you've answered your own question. If you are having feelings of guilt for any reason, it's too soon. If you do pursue a relationship with him please guard your heart and be discreet for the sake of everyone. …"
"I understand, completely your desire to have companionship. I really do! I am dating after my wife died over two years ago, I started a few months after she died. The first relationship was a disaster and I had to go through loss all over again! I…"
"First, let me say I am so sorry for your loss. I think most would agree that the loneliness is what hits you the most. After nine months without my soulmate that is what I find the most painful and I truly understand how difficult it is at this…"
OK, here goes...My husband passed away 2.5 months ago, so I am pretty new to all of this. The thing is, I am super lonely. I am 43, so I'm not ready to live the rest of my life alone. A friend that we had both known for the past 20 years texted me the other day asking if he could meet up soon to talk, since he found out late that my husband passed (I couldn't find his contact info to let him know when it first happened). He said he was also feeling down and lonely because he and his wife of…See More

I lost my wife of 30 years in May, still feels like yesterday. I did go to a grief class that did help. Christmas was very tough but we made it through. My son still lives with me. He has been a big help. My daughter only lives do the street so…"
im so sorry you lost your love. It’s really early for you and very raw. It’s normal to feel this. Be kind to yourself and don’t push too hard. I’m ten months on and I have a hard time with couples and social…"
Hi there, I'm fairly new to the site. My name is Kate and I lost my husband of 20 years (Tom) to cardiac arrest on November 23rd at age 46. I am so lost and devastated. I have been asked to dinners with his family (I don't have any, and both my parents passed away already), and have tried to go out with my children to do things. but all I see when I go out is husbands and wives together enjoying themselves.
