  • yes as long as they are actually ready to love again. You can never be totally over something like that. That is just impossible. But I don't want someone who hasn't come to terms and are still in the middle of grieving. They need to help themselves first.

  • Yes, I probably could, though it depends on timing. It may feel more appropriate at first to let them grieve before getting into a new relationship.

  • Yes, unless I suspected they murdered them for insurance money or something. That would be a deal breaker.

  • Not at this age. Maybe if I'm older and the guy's wounds healed.

  • Yes I could do that and I wouldn't be naive enough to expect them to "be over" that other person because people never are.
    As long as he loved me and didn't compare us I'd be fine.

  • No one ever gets completely "over" the loss of a loved one but I wouldn't date a widow just so I could be a platonic friend and help her with the loss. Dating and friendship are two different things.

  • Depends on the circumstances of the death.
