Dating someone with testicular cancer
Some people take years, others take weeks, and then there are those who choose never to date again.If a person was terminally ill, and the illness took a long time to run its course, the widowed person may have done a lot of grieving prior to the actual death and might be ready to date earlier than the “experts” predict.Dating after the death of a spouse can be an awkward experience.
I believe dating gives you the opportunity to open your heart to another person and the chance to experience the unique and exquisite joy that comes with falling in love again.
My husband was told he would be lucky to live two years post diagnosis. From the moment we got the news about my husband's survival expectancy, I went into functioning like a single parent and we worked on getting things in order. When I felt ready to at least test the dating waters, my girlfriends and I created an online dating profile for myself.
I really didn't want to go this route, but it seemed like the right thing to do to meet people in my age bracket.
There is no specific time period one should wait before dating again.
The right amount of time to grieve is different for everyone, and at some point, a person just needs to be allowed to be happy again.
