I really enjoyed reading this book. I felt that the author was candid and wrote in a style that was easy to read. Several books I've read have had a more scientific approach, that required serious study more than casual reading, but Mr. Keogh writes in a conversational style that sets you at ease even though the subject matter is serious. I am dating a widower. I obviously don't know how it will end up yet, but I do feel more equipped to recognize "red flags" and understand where he's coming from than I would have been prior to reading this book. My only caution is that every person and situation is different. So, while the author provides interesting examples, I feel like a person in my situation needs to be careful of taking a one size fits all approach. The man I'm dating is not a character in the book, so I need to be careful to not expect the same result, good or bad, that was shown in the book - just because it may seem he shares similarites or attributes. I do think this book is helpful. I felt much more informed about dating a widower after reading it. Just my opinions... Good luck to anyone out there thinking about and/or dating a widower. It's definitely not easy, but it has been good for me so far... Here's hoping it stays that way! :)

This book help me realize I wasn't the only one who felt the things I did. It talked about everything I have been feeling and need to talk to my W about but didn't know how. I will read all of the books Abel has about this. I hope to share these books with my W so he can understand why I am feeling the way I do about certain things. It is so hard to find the balance of standing up for yourself and respecting his past life.

This is a very enlightening book since it is written by a widower. It is from a man's point of view and great advise for a woman who is thinking about dating a widower. Being a recent widow and thinking about dating after 37 years of marriage to a wonderful man is very scary. Some of the feelings the author shares are what I feel too. Men do think different than women though. As a women beginning the dating process again is like a dance. The Hokey Pokey. You put your whole self in or you put your whole self out. Men on the other hand I am finding like to square dance. They like to change partners and dosey doe. That is not what it is all about. I would highly recommend this book as it is very helpful in understanding a man's thought process after the loss of his wife. God help us all. LOL...Laugh Out Loud.
