How do you know you are ready to start dating again after the Loss of a Spouse? And if you think you are, what do you do now? Two important questions addressed by Jeanne Nelson, Marriage and Family Therapist who lived through the process herself after losing her husband of 27-years. Jeanne speaks from both a professional and personal perspective on how to reconcile your feelings with the opinions of others; truly being open to meet someone new; and to the need to be sensitive to the emotions and mindset of a new partner dating a widow or widower. Please share your insight, comments and questions. This is part 2 of a three-part interview with Jeanne and an ongoing dialogue with no black or white answers.
