Instead, follow these tips for dating widows and follow your heart.

If you really like who this woman is, you need to accept the fact that the death of her spouse likely contributed greatly to her development into the person you now care so much about.

Also, if the person was terminally ill and that illness took a long time to run it’s course, the widowed person may have done a lot of grieving prior to the actual occurrence of death and might be ready to date earlier than ‘the experts’ predict.

It has its perks and it has its bummer moments, but I think dating up in age is something that women should do at least once in life, even if it doesn’t turn into something serious.Sudden deaths, on the other hand, were very traumatic, leaving a man at least temporary immobilized. Most felt they had at least some control over their lives.This was especially true for younger men, who felt that in addition to losing their wives, they lost the future. For example, "Clarence," 93, who lived alone, established a comfortable daily routine.Early on I used to have a fit every week about what he could do to make more time for me, but at a certain point, after some compromising, you end up just trying to be supportive and patient.Besides, I wouldn’t want the finger pointed at me for having a part in keeping him from doing what he needs to do to get ahead.
