The 2nd Chapter

When it comes to moving forward into your journey of dating again after the loss of a partner, it can be difficult to know where to begin. The internet isn’t exactly over-saturated with dating advice for widows and widowers. That’s where Chapter 2 comes in.

One of the most challenging aspects of starting dating is knowing when to share this news with friends and family. There really is no right or wrong time, the timing will depend on who you are telling, your relationship with them and their relationship with your late spouse.
