Widowers Benefit From Dating

A study published in the November 2011 journal, Psycho-Oncology, found that widowers who were in new relationships four to five years after their wives passed away were no more likely to suffer from anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, and other emotional symptoms than married men whose wives had not died.  However, widowers who stayed single had higher rates of problems than people in both groups.

The take-away from this is that there is now clinical evidence that Suddenly Solo men who began new relationships within five years of their wife’s passing were healthier in many significant ways than those who remained single.  Of course, there are always exceptions, and we know many Suddenly Solo men who remain single by choice and have fulfilling, happy, and healthy lives.  We encourage you to make your own decisions and we only ask that you leave yourself open to all possibilities!
