Dating after being widowed
Try not to let this dissuade you if you are ready to consider dating again know that you absolutely have the right to do so. If you are an older widowed person, please beware of romance scams.
Online dating and social media sites are one of the easiest ways to meet someone who is also looking to date, but romance scams are just one-way con artists might exploit older adults.
Online, as in life, the rule of thumb seems to be that the heart is a lovely hunter.
The desire to form a new romantic connection after the loss of a spouse is a positive and healthy one.
Perhaps you’re ready to see the world and want to find someone who shares your wanderlust. The simplest is to ask friends if they know someone you’d enjoy meeting. Most people probably won’t think of suggesting this on their own (and if they do, they may hold back for fear of offending you).
