Finding Love After Loss

After losing someone special in your life, the concept of dating again and finding a new partner can seem daunting. Some people choose never to be in a relationship again opting instead to embrace the single life. Others in their quest to get over their feelings of loss and bereavement, decide to try dating once more to find a new partner and seek happiness and companionship again.

For many Widows and Widowers there is a natural desire to want to be back in a loving relationship and to overcome their feelings of loneliness. However, it is also natural to experience feelings of guilt such as ‘Is it too soon?’, ‘Am I betraying my old partner?’. With these any many other questions relating to bereavement, it is important to remember that finding happiness again is something that you should not feel guilty about.

Everyone deserves to be happy and happiness comes in many forms. Joining a dating site to find a new partner should never be about replacement of your ex-partner, but about deciding to move on with your life when you are ready to consider dating again.

If you have a good relationship with your in-laws then it is highly likely that rather than judging you they will be happy and supportive of you in your desire to move forward and rebuild your life with a new partner. The same goes with your friends. So do not let this become a concern as you seek to move forward in your life.

We are all different and we all deal with the loss of a loved one in different ways. There is no set period after which you will feel ready to date again. Only you will know when the time is right. Whilst it might seem daunting at first, remember that you have experienced love and happiness before. Finding love after loss is possible and many people using dating sites such as WidowsDatingOnline end up in a mutually rewarding and loving relationship again. So don’t let love pass you by. If you are ready, why not give it a go.
