Dealing dating widower
To me, the Dating a Widower movement, such as it is, looks like it's just based on following Google to high readership.Just because people ask a question, doesn't mean there is a substantive answer to be found...) I've always wanted to do a comparison that went beyond "my husband didn't WANT to leave me." Abel has just published a huge list justifying why this is a legitimate area... Often the ex-wife has been cut out of the family photos and pictures are spookily absent. We both do it, too, but again, most of the time, we do it gently and usually we're talking about behavior and not, say, waist size. I believe however that new partners benefit from displays of love like this....some of the ways that widowers behave badly in the dating market. Sometimes this means there are no pictures of the kids, either, or that the divorce lives in hotel-room-like impersonal environment. It is hard to avoid, but "constantly" would piss anybody off. not to mention tourists: the Taj Mahal was built to remember the Shah's late wife.Just lay your cards out on the table and keep the dialogue running. I have various quibbles with this topic, which he and I have discussed many times.
It didn't go well, but it had nothing to do with his loss.) So I tend to wonder, why is there no comparable community (and books) for those dating widowed WOMEN,given that they are 7/8ths of the widowed population?
Many of the men in question seem to have significant trouble living comfortably with their past lives and experiences.
Perhaps some of them were even a little nuts before they were widowed (we are changed by our losses... I also think that widowers with children still at home (most of the widowers I know fall in this category) are a bit more justified in hanging on to "stuff" from their past lives and sharing family (like in-laws) and memories a bit more actively.
He shouldn’t feel embarrassed or shameful to reminisce about the woman he was married to.
Widowers can be more attractive than a man who is divorced.
