Dating a newly widowed man

Rated 4.43/5 based on 774 customer reviews

Tim and Jane were together for 14 years but married for only two of those, after her diagnosis.I’ve seen the pictures of their wedding – Tim looking uncomfortable in a suit and Jane in a simple dress and headscarf. But the most remarkable thing I learnt from all those post-breakfast conversations was that Jane made Tim promise that after she’d gone he wouldn’t stay on his own; he would go out and meet someone else.Don’t settle for less from him than you would for any other guy.His relationship status on the dating website was “widower” and his age 39.

But it hasn’t been like that for me, partly because of who Tim is, but also because of the person Jane was and what she did before she died.The only difference is you might need to have more patience.Having standards doesn’t mean you aren’t empathetic to the pain he’s gone through.They lasted for as long as Tim needed to talk, and I was happy to have them.I had fallen in love and wanted to know everything about this incredible man, including what had happened.
