Here’s to your Chapter 2…

We welcome everyone who has lost a life partner or significant other regardless of marital status, with or without children, inclusive of all ages and LGBTQIA+.

A community built by widows, for widows & widowers

After the initial shock, grief and heartache in losing your life partner and having your life irrevocably change, we inevitably take steps to move forward and find new meaning in life.

Chapter 2 can be friendship, companionship, dating or physical comfort, it means different things to different people.

Widows and widowers are uniquely placed to understand the other parties’ point of view and respect their need to grieve and mourn what has gone before.

Chapter 2 is a community exclusively for widows and widowers with a forum, blog, advice and resources.

Trust & Safety

Don't share personal details

Chapter 2 is a safe and secure platform to meet and communicate with other widows and widowers. You can exchange messages within the platform without sharing personal data. Never, ever share passwords, log in details or credit card information.

Be honest

At Chapter 2 we want to create the world’s best community, dating and friendship platform dedicated to all who have suffered a loss. We are only as good as our members so we ask everyone to be open, authentic, honest and decent.

Be aware

Never ever give or offer money to anyone you meet online. If anyone asks you for cash please block and report them so we can remove them from our community.


Once you have been chatting in Chapter 2, it may be a good idea to exchange social media profiles and we highly recommend a video call ahead of meeting someone in person to help you verify who they are.

Meeting up

Always arrange a first meeting in a public place. It often makes sense to meet soonish rather than spend months messaging as it can help you rule someone in or out. Often people are different online than in person. Be cautious.

Trust your gut instinct

Trust your gut instinct… if something feels wrong it probably is, if in doubt or if you don’t feel safe, block and report. Do not click on any links anyone sends you and never give passwords, credit card or bank details.

The safety and privacy of our community is our number one priority.

The platform is a safe and secure space which is only open to widows and widowers. We recognise that as widows we can be vulnerable and so the platform has a rigorous sign-up process, all profiles are vetted and users can report any suspicious activity, messages or behaviour. All confidential data is stored securely, you choose what you share on your profile. The safety of our community is paramount.

How it started

Chapter 2 – Founded by Nicky Wake

Nicky is a widow, who at just 49, sadly lost her husband in April 2020 and has struggled to find a way to move forward and consider dating again. She set up Chapter 2 as a safe platform for widows and widowers to find happiness and their next chapter.
