Dating after Widowhood...is there hope?
Now, first let me start off by saying I am not at the point of making a match.com profile. Or whatever. My husband died 7 months ago, and right now I am just trying to be a good Mom to my kids, and taking things day by day, as we figure out our new "normal." But....although I loved my husband dearly, and would've always stayed faithfully married to him, he struggled terrible with his addictions, and lived outside our home, for the better part of the last year of his life. SO, I feel like I have been mourning his loss for well over 7 months, and I do hope to one day crack the door of "maybe" open a little bit....
Which brings me back to my question. I am 36 years old, with two children, and while I sometimes feel like I have more baggage then a Samsonite factory, I also wonder, is there hope in one day finding a mate?
I have always hated the dating scene. I like being married, and just living a nice comfortable, boring life.
So, is there hope after being a widow - or divorcee? If so, how did you and your spouse meet?
