Deep down maybe you wanted emotional connection but didn't know ! Be who you are and be respectful and don't force nothing and don't allow yourself to get into it too deeply (just in case! Once she is over grieving (you will know and she will know) you can take it up and see where and how it goes.
My goodness, it's been a month since she lost both parents in a tragic accident. This poor girl is still likely in shock of what has happened. She has not even begun to comprehend the grief of this loss. It breaks my heart to even imagine what she will feel in the coming months and years.
Hi, I was told by others that this would be a good forum for my questions and concerns. :) I am not a widow (divorced for 11 years) but I date a widower.
His wife passed about 1 1/2 years ago and a long illness.
By choice or by chance -- you have found yourself dating a man who is grieving the loss of his wife.
Take things slow, have personal boundaries, realize that grief is an individual process, and prepare for the cold shoulder from friends and family.
Our relationship is along the lines of companions and we do a lot together most of the time and sometimes go through periods of a week or so where we don't see each other a lot.
I believe we share a lot and we have some plans for activities into the future, he even asked me about something for 2013.
Once that was over he said he needed a day or so...which is fine.
It has been a bit slow since then, which is also fine. I honestly just want him to find joy in the end and if it is with me great!!!
I guess its just from my point of view i wouldn't think twice about how to behave in a relationship or progress a relationship if the circumstances werent as they are Yeah yeah.
Yeah you're right, I mean people meet under all sorts of circumstances and situations don't they!
Its weird, I would never normally overthink a relationship, particularly not such a new relationship but I don't know, I guess she's got me good haha! I'm pretty sure we've spoken everyday since we met, which is crazy in itself, I've never felt like that! We don't choose when/how we cross paths with people in many cases..just cross paths, for better or for worse. It's funny actually, because ive never taken a relationship close to this slowly physically, nor this fast emotionally.
