Finding love again after losing a partner is a sensitive process. Only you will know if and when you’re ready to date again. If you’ve enjoyed a happy and fulfilling marriage, it can be easy to compare your previous partner with someone new. This being the case, it’s important to accept that this is an experience to be enjoyed without any feelings of guilt. Over time, dating can open up your life to new pathways you may have never even considered. Rather than thinking that you have to move on from loving your previous partner, instead see it as an opportunity to build upon the love you’ve already experienced.
The commitment and trust found in companionship is like no other. Joining local groups can provide us with the sense of community and belonging we may be seeking, putting us in touch with others who can relate to our loss. Connecting with somebody intimately, however, can encourage us to open-up and share our heart in a different way. This intimacy can give birth to lasting friendship, bringing feelings of reassurance and hope. By opening ourselves up in this manner, we create the conditions for romance to flourish, providing us with the genuine connection we may be deep down seeking.

Feelings of loneliness and isolation when your life partner has passed away can be an extremely alienating experience. When you want to share magic moments or anxious thoughts, but have lost your soul mate, it can be difficult to come to terms with what seems to be a solitary path for the future. Shyness can play a big part in this, or feelings of being unworthy. Assuming everyone else’s life is more interesting and substantial than your own, however, is a mistake. Ask any other widow or widower and they will very likely relate to these sentiments – especially in the early stages of widowhood.
This being the case, it is helpful to explore opportunities to meet somebody new. Companionship and friendship are qualities not immediately focussed upon when speaking about romantic relationships. It is only when we lose a partner unexpectedly that we can truly come to see that it is not just the love and affection we miss, but the joys of being in a partnership, hearts linked as one. Enjoying the simple act of sharing your daily life with somebody can enhance our own experience of life and the appreciation of knowing there is someone there by your side.
For those who have experienced a warm and loving relationship, it may well be that you haven’t always shared your feelings with others, simply because you had a partner to listen and care for you. This sentiment alone should prompt you to consider finding companionship again. If you had a strong bond with your previous partner, then there is every reason that there will be others who can also provide that sense of closeness and support. By venturing to meet others who can relate to your loss, you can be confident that you are communicating with people who understand what you are going through.
