That said, once it does start to feel right, there are a few tips that might make it easier to take the plunge with widower or widow dating.A key challenge when dating again is idealising our deceased partner and the relationship we had with them.Yet, to really see the rewards of this, it is important to remember two things: you musn't compare (try not to think about how someone new is similar to your previous partner) and you musn't contrast (likewise, try not to focus on how the person you are dating is different to your ex.) The danger with comparing and contrasting is that anyone new will be measured according to an unachievable ideal.
To bear this in mind is important for anyone serious about beginning to move forward.
For some of us this may be hard to fathom but moving on is a deeply personal experience and what feels right for one, may feel inappropriate for someone else.
I think the most important thing about ‘moving on’ is only to do it when it feels right for us.
