Widow dating again

Recently, Dating Again as a widow or widower was the topic of a Widow Care Connection group.Eight widows gathered and the conversation went in many directions.Of course, the experience is much different after losing a spouse.Some of our widowed members had been with their late husbands or wives their entire lives. You didn’t see us apart, ever”, or, “she was my soul mate” are often how stories of these marriages begin. Upon learning of this, I went back and gave him my card. The co-captain on the boat was flirting with me, which I was completely unaware of, until my friends pointed it out. Some of us feel sick to our stomachs or nauseous, at the very thought of anyone else who is not our dear husband, ever touching us again. We were together about 5 months or so, and he was my "first time" after my loss. I think it was made easier, and less weird, because he was also widowed, and understood the strangeness of sex for the first time after loss. I had never gotten closer with someone, in such a short period of time. We flirted and made each other feel good, all day long. He wished me well in finding someone, and said I was a "good person." Just 2 hours before that text, everything was normal. Right now, Im talking with 2 potential future dates, and we will see what happens. And now, almost six years later, the same woman who didnt want anyone touching her or hugging her, is feeling incredibly sexual lately.

I felt like I didnt matter enough to them, to deserve a conversation. The person who used to call you handsome or pretty. The person you said goodnight too, and good morning. Sometimes people find love with one another, and the rest of us cheer. Some, I have an understanding with, that if we are both ever single at the same time, maybe we can spend some intimate time together, no strings attached. They know, and so they become like anchors we can hold onto, until we find our way. So until i find mine, maybe I'll just keep fluttering around, and enjoying the view.

Because for me, I do not want to live a life with no more love. I do not want to live alone, or grow old alone, or die alone.
