Issues dating widower
But I agreed to a *date* under the pretense that this would be dating, no relationship, no happily ever after. So the issue: When we are together, we have a great time. We will have three to four great weeks, then he'll suddenly pull back. Since we've been together, neither of us has dated anyone else and we are viewed by friends and family as a couple.
We talk every day and see each other two to four times a week.
After the latest falling out, we spent a few weeks "not seeing each other" but still talking/texting daily. In the end, he concluded that yes, he did want me in his life.
And he has made an effort to be more of a friend to me, be more supportive of my emotional needs (and honestly, I'm rarely needy). how crazy is it that I had to ask in the first place?
If you are dating or planning to marry a widow or widower, here are some suggestions and thoughts to consider.

Does a man's brooding brand of anguish turn too soon to a quest for companionship and (ultimately) sex?
