Dating advice for widowers - bayesian updating
Widowers vary in their readiness for dating and relationships.Some never move on, and others date almost immediately after loss with mixed results.
Some may not have ever dated another woman, because they married the first woman they ever met.
Many widowers have been married to only one spouse.
Many have been married for several years—in some cases, more than forty years.

He knew I was looking for a serious relationship and wanted to meet me.
When you start dating someone who’s not on the same page as you, it’s nearly impossible for him to come around and be what you need him to be.
