Dating after being a young widow
But, they'd usually kindly excuse themselves moments later. While it was kind of them to do so, I wasn't all that interested. Do I blurt out "I'm Amy and I'm a widow" right up front to see if they're still interested in dating me?
Or do I wait until the third date to give them the big reveal?
But that ring on my finger led to plenty of awkward conversations. Sometimes -- plenty of times -- people said the "wrong" thing.I knew not everyone was interested in dating a widow.Especially since my husband's family had basically adopted me.At times I get angry; going to the playground and seeing children running after their Daddies felt terribly unfair."Equally hard is people assuming I'm divorced.Yes, I'm a single mother, but I didn't have a choice.
