Male widows over 50 dating
Of course, no matter how close our partner came to being ‘ideal’, we all know that no one really can be.
A key challenge when dating again is idealising our deceased partner and the relationship we had with them.This is true of both the past and of anyone new you might meet.Indeed, you cannot expect that every new date will be perfection but you approach them with the right frame of mind.I recently met the mother of an acquaintance of mine in the park.During our brief chat, she revealed quite a lot about herself – she explained how she had been in a very loving marriage for over 40 years until her husband died suddenly of a heart attack.So when a partner dies, the grieving is not only for our beloved but also for the relationship itself. Each person’s experience of bereavement is different and unique.
To try and quantify an ‘average duration’ for grieving and recover is futile.
Moving on from losing a partner is one of the hardest things to deal with.
As psychotherapist Hilda Burke explains, everyone's experience is different and there are no hard rules about when to move on.
