Hi! I am new to this board, but I'm interested in dating again.

I am a widow, I lost my husband 15 months ago. I have a 4yr old as well.

Karri,


Mommy to Lilly Mae

First of all, I'm sorry for your loss.

I sympathise with you at the loss and pray that God will console you.On the dating thing,its left for you to forget the past and concentrate on the future. Being a widow should not make a man weird.For us men,we will like to see u recover from the loss and have a new drive to explore life with hope. Once u are able to do this am sure u ll get the right man.

I am a single dad and I would have no problem with this at all. One benefit is you do not have a crazy ex to deal with. I was recently contacted by an old high school friend who is widowed. I have no problem dating her. I did meet her husband a couple times. He was a good guy. I think that since it is unusual to meet a young widow guys are surprised but please give them a few minutes to get used to the idea. There is a man out there who would love to date you. Ray
