dating match live - Dating a young widow with kids

Did you take your wedding rings off before you started dating? It took me months and months to remove them permanently and in the end I opted to have them remade into a custom ring I could wear on my right hand so I’d always have that little piece of who I was before to carry with me as who I am now.

Not during very private moments, if that is what you are getting at.

Before I started dating that was something I did worry about though.

Either that or “don’t you think it’s about time you started to date?

” The point here is that everyone out there, especially those who don’t know what they are talking about, has an opinion on this.

This was always a big fear of mine, something I sweated about for weeks leading up to our wedding.

I envisioned all sorts of horrible scenarios in front of a church full of people, melting into a gooey puddle of shame after blurting out the wrong name (instead I called myself by my new husband’s name…

This is a personal choice that each widow must make for herself. I was very up front with them and told them how I felt and what was going on.

I did sweat a little over starting to date after only a couple months. Of course I waited several months to make sure it was more of a serious relationship before I opened up to them.

Sometimes my new husband says the odd thing that will remind me of Craig or I’ll hear a song on the radio while we are driving in the car that will make me tear up. Everyone knows the person on the furthest side is safe.
