I could be myself, tears and all – and he understood every bit of it. Being able to identify with someone through an intelligent, funny, and adult conversation is the sexiest thing close to sex itself. There is nothing wrong with enjoying the company of a youthful man.
Tip 8: If he’s younger, don’t show him your Senior Discount card (or let him know you have one) 🙂Let’s face it, you may have a Medical, Prescription, or even a rental discount card in your wallet.He’s already familiar with the unwanted journey so if you cry for your husband, he can relate.If you leave up his pictures, more than likely, he does too. Keep in mind that widowers are human too and although he may not be THAT guy, at least you gave it a chance. But heck, I was upset when I was dating non-widowers, like the one who used me like a rubber band to the point where he introduced me to his married client who I befriended, only to find out he was having an affair with her (and the list goes on).You’ve grieved long enough and cried enough tears to age yourself twenty years.You may be in your tenth year of widowhood or second year, yet you feel you’re ready to date.You miss him dearly but you desire a husband, a mate, your .
