Dating after loss parent

Sometimes people feel guilty about wanting company and physical love.

If you are a widow or widower, you may have faced this scenario more than once.

Here is what you can do when your children disapprove of your dating again.

And, if it helps you to grieve the loss of your mother to not meet this woman right now, I think you are entitled to that and should not have to meet her yet. But again, in my opinion I believe in order for you to grieve as you need to, then you do not have to meet this woman right now. And so none of us can say your father is doing it the right or wrong way - he has to do it his own way.

Especially, who is to know if this relationship will even go anywhere yet? As a grieving widow, I've seen how so many of us handle things differently. I just hope he is doing it in a way that is fair to himself and the woman he is seeing...

I don't know what my question is, or how you can help, but I am just so angry! My response: I'm so sorry to learn of the difficulties you're having with your dad, and I can only imagine how difficult this must be for you.
