Widowers are QUICK to rebound, to a point of being unseemly.
The guy’s been married for 30 years, his wife dies in June and he started dating online 2 months later?
That's when the couple planned to have a larger, second wedding in February 2016John told PEOPLE that the couple first met in 2002 as high school students in Illinois.
I want to see more of him at this point (3 months,) especially on Saturday nights.
I made that need known last weekend in a calm, rational way.
Factor in the dearth of older men – there are literally 3 times more single women over the age of 65 – and, well, a decent looking widower doesn’t stay available for very long. And if he fails, he risks losing the woman he cares about.
Next, something I know (and have stated repeatedly) about men – of all ages: We do what we want. Which means that even if many widowers throw themselves into new relationships because of their tremendous loneliness, THIS one seems to be functioning more like your basic super-successful middle-aged man. You can give him an extra-wide berth because he’s newly single, but be forewarned: a man who is newly single (and is keeping a little distance) is probably going to want to get a greater sampling of what’s available instead of diving right back into commitment.
