Having spent many years with your previous partner, it is only natural that the reality of being single again can come as a surprise. Allowing yourself plenty of time to grieve is paramount, ensuring you go through the necessary emotions related to your loss. Lifestyle changes, including getting used to no longer being in a couple, can be a sensitive period. As time goes on, you may come to feel the need to have somebody new in your life; somebody with whom you can share the ebb and flow of day-to-day living with.
As a senior widow or widower, you may like the idea of meeting somebody who can relate to your loss. Dating after becoming widowed is not like other forms of dating – it is a set of circumstances you didn’t choose or expect. Therefore, the need to connect with others who understand what you are experiencing is key.

Planning events that you can look forward to with a partner is one of the joys of being in a relationship. Whether arranging a short city break, luxury cruise, trip to the theatre or an outing to the nearest shopping mall, it is great to know you have somebody in your life to share these experiences with. Simply having someone to talk to about your interests, experiences and aspirations for the future can inspire you to open up your life in ways you may have not imagined.
Getting started on Widowsorwidowers.com is simple. Once you’ve registered, you can select your interests and write a short profile, sharing a bit about yourself. You can then start your search, connecting with members living near to you. Our online chat facility makes communication simple, allowing for spontaneous conversations to form, if you choose to do so. We also provide the opportunity to keep a dating diary, recording your experiences of dating after loss.
Entering into the latter stages of life doesn’t mean you should close the door to any opportunity of dating again. If you were widowed at a young age and have spent a long period being single, perhaps now is the time to explore dating once more. If you have been widowed relatively recently, there is nothing wrong in reaching out to others to gain clarity about what you want for the future. In either case, connecting with senior widows and widowers is a great way to form new acquaintances and expand your social life.
There are no rules as to how to be a widow or widower. Regardless of whether others close to you agree about you dating again, what’s important is listening to how you feel inside. If there is an inner-voice telling you to step out there and meet others, then it’s worth trusting this and moving forward with optimism. Meeting somebody now could be a positive game changer for the future. Join today and start connecting with other senior widows and widowers near you.
