We match our members to truly compatible Americans; prioritizing connections that share some common ground.
It's important to remember, though, that moving on is not about ‘replacing’ or ‘forgetting’ about your loved one – it's about allowing yourself room for both treasured memories and new happiness.
This can mean different things for different people: some may want to get remarried, while others might want to start with friendship and go from there.
Does a man's brooding brand of anguish turn too soon to a quest for companionship and (ultimately) sex?
Be sure to let your partner specify how they want to remember or honor their lost spouse, and tell your new partner how you like to pay respects to yours.
It's undoubtedly a sensitive topic, but a detailed conversation early in your relationship can save later pain.
Undertaking in widow or widower dating does come with its own special requirements and considerations, but don't let this put you off.
As the relationship ended because of a death, we can feel that it would never have otherwise ended.
In that sense, it can hold an ‘eternal’ quality in our hearts and minds, with our dead partner being elevated to the position of a ‘martyr’.
