How do you handle discussion about your date's deceased spouse? Avoid it entirely? Offer condolences? Ask them if they want to talk about it? I can't imagine having that experience and I'm sure that it leaves wounds that never heal. I don't want to be insensitive but I really don't know if it is better to avoid the topic or talk about it openly.

I lost my husband eight years ago to a genetic lung disorder. If a man says sorry for your loss I thank him and move on from that topic. I'm sure no one wants to hear stories about him except for the kids and I only share the nice memories with them.1
