(Quote) Daniel-944492 said: My wife was admitted to the hospital a year ago today about a month and a half after our daughter was born. She was quickly diagnosed with a rare cancer that was widely metastatic. We spent the year going through treatments but she the cancer just couldn't be controlled. She died this past November. She had repeatedly told me that she wanted me to move on, to allow myself to fall in love again. The past three months have been bad but I'm coming to the realization that I did a lot of grieving over the past year. I'm not sure if I'm ready to go on a date or not. Some days I feel like I could and others there is just no way. I figure this site might be a good start.

Welcome to CM and the forum. The Widow & Widowers room has helped me to understand I am not alone, and that others have suffered greatly as well, thus pulling me out of myself and focusing on moving ahead with my life. I found many folks can't understand the pain of a W/Wer and avoid the topic of ones loss. I had no one to talk to about my loss as every time I would brush the subject, I would get cut off. You have come to the right place, Daniel. theheart

So sorry for you loss Daniel. This is an excellent forum, because we have all been where you are at. It is a bumpy road, but we survive. My sons were teenagers when they lost their father. It has been 19 years since I lost John and 9 years since I lost Jerry. You will always miss them, but life is for the living and we must go on without them. You will know when the time is right to start dating again. God gives us the capacity to fall in love again.

Welcome . I am new too just joined 2 days ago. I lost my husband of 35 years in July after a 5 year battle with cancer. I am not sure if I am really ready for dating but I am sure that I need a friend that will understand what it is like to be a widow and that is what I hope to start out with.

Hi Daniel,

I am very sorry you are having to face this loss. Welcome and hugs and know you are not alone. I am still not sure if I am ready or not, but decided if I didn't at least start being open to the opportunities I might miss meeting someone special or making new friends. When all the pieces fall into place it will be time, but nothing wrong with making one's self present to the possibility.

I have been widowed for 4 years, I still can't make up my mind if I ready to date or not. I have been on a couple of dates, the last one I was getting advice from of all people, the Mother Superior of the covent attached to where I work. Okay, maybe that wasn't to smart on my part.

I'm new to CM, but I feel comfort in the fact that there are people of faith knowing what I'm going thru. The best thing is that I don't have to say anything, they have already said what I'm feeling.
