DEAR DEIDRE: IS my recently widowed close friend really ready to love again or am I playing with fire?
I am 55 and she is 58. She cared for her late husband for months during his final illness.
I am a local driver who gives lifts to people to hospital. That is how we met.
We have become very friendly since he died as we live in the same small town.
I hinted that I would like to take her on a date but asked whether it is too soon.
She was adamant she is definitely ready to love and be loved. It is good to hear but I am not sure if I should get involved.
DEIDRE SAYS: No reason not to have an outing together but don’t rush things on too fast. The first year after being bereaved is a time of readjustment.
While your friend says she is ready to love she may find she is not as ready as she thinks.
Take it slowly to protect yourself and to discover if you really are wanting the same things.
