This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Are you thinking about dating a widower? Your new relationship will have unique challenges you won’t find when dating single or divorced men. For it to work, the widower will have to put his feelings for his late wife to the side and focus on you. But how do you know if he’s ready to take this step?
Drawing on his own experience as a widower who’s remarried, Abel Keogh gives you unique insight into the hearts and minds of widowers, including:
* How to tell if a widower’s ready to make room in his heart for you
* Red flags that may indicate he’s not ready for commitment
* How to handle family and friends who aren’t supportive of the widower’s new relationship
* Tips for dealing with holidays and other special occasions
Dating a Widower is your 101 guide to having a relationship with a man who’s starting over. It also contains over a dozen real life stories from women who have gone down the same road you’re traveling. It’s the perfect book to help you decide if the man you’re seeing is ready for a new relationship—and whether or not dating a widower is right for you.
Dating a widower
This book was relevant and helpful as I began dating my boyfriend. I am so glad to have stumbled upon it.
Everyone is different
I'm a 45 year old widower going on 2 years. I have two grade school age sons. I found this book valuable because it made me think about dating from a woman's perspective. I imagine I have a number of red flags around my house.
While there were a couple chapters that discussed widowers with kids, I can't emphasize enough how difficult it is to find time to devote to dating. Be patient with us. Also, don't get too hung up on how many photos or mementos he may have around the house. Redecorating may not be a top priority and the children may not want them put away yet.
I agree with his discussion on loneliness and intimacy. Women (and widowers) need to be upfront with what their goals are in the relationship.
I would recommend this book to both widowers and the women they are dating. If nothing else it provides a lot of discussion points.
