Keep An Eye Out For These Red Flags When You Are Dating A Widower

When someone mentions the word ‘widower,’ an image of an old man pops into our head. Unfortunately, this image isn’t completely realistic. Some men become widowers a lot sooner. Their wife passes when they are still in their 30s or 40s. Naturally, after some time has passed, they get back on the market and start dating again. If you have fallen for one of these guys, you have to be prepared for some unpleasant scenarios. Although some women who try widowers dating end up in loving relationships, others get their heart broken. In order to avoid the second possibility, keep your eyes open for these red flags.

You are a spitting image of his late wife

Okay, let’s make something clear. Everyone has a type. While you might be attracted to tall, dark-haired men with blue eyes, he might lean towards blondes who have a high pitched laugh. Nevertheless, if you notice that you have more than five things in common with his late spouse, stop and ask yourself if he is dating you because of you, or because he sees her in you. Trust us, it is not that uncommon for a widower to seek his late wife in other women. The problem with this scenario is that he is not in love with you, he just continued dating his wife in a really weird way. It is his way of grieving and that is perfectly fine. However, keep in mind that you will never become his number one. Do you want to be in that kind of relationship?

He just loves the attention

When you start dating a widower, make sure that his grieving days are over and he is ready to move on. Otherwise, you will just end up heartbroken. When a man loses his wife, he needs help from others in order to move on. Your attention and kind words will surely be welcomed, just make sure you are on the same page. Although he likes spending time with you it doesn’t mean he is ready to be in a relationship with you. He just might like your sympathy and nice gestures.

She is always on his mind

In your discussions, he will sometimes mention her, but keep in mind that she was a huge part of his life and many of his memories revolve around her. However, if her name pops out in every other sentence, pack your bags. He is clearly not ready to move on.
