A person has to come to terms with being a widow/widower, that in itself is not easy,going from being a couple,to be on their own, from Us to I,
Some widows/widowers are contented to live alone, and not be in a relationship,this may not be the same for other widows/widowers,they could want a relationship, who knows when the best time is,Only you will know.
Just take things very slowly and be careful.

Great answers. It's a matter of listening to what feels right, whatever anyone else says. If I am careful and it feels like the right time, I'll go ahead and dabble my feet in the shallow end of the pool.

My husband and I would've wanted a happy life for the one left. Thanks Jujo and everyone else.

A person who is widowed has to adapt to going from a couple to single life.Living alone, cooking meals for one,watching television alone, but life doesn’t have to be doom and gloom, there are community centres that have classes who mature people attend, make friends,

Some don't want to join clubs, it's up to the person when they involve with people.
It took my six years before I could integrate with any one

Personally...immediately because I wouldn't want to waste a second trying to find happiness and also because I hate being on my own. For me, loving someone would be the only thing that really gives me purpose to life.

Don’t follow any pattern or worry about other opinions. It’s your life, do as it when it will make you happy, not others. This may be easier said than done for some people. Good luck.
