Widow Dating & Relationships

Widower dating in the UK

At eharmony, we’re committed to helping people find love, whatever their circumstances. We understand that dating as a widow or widower presents unique problems, but can also offer plentiful rewards, for we’re committed to making it as easy as possible. Unlike other free dating sites aimed at widows and widowers, we don’t treat you like just another face in the crowd; we specialise in helping people find meaningful, happy relationships. With the help of our unique Relationship Questionnaire, we take the time to really get to know you, so that we can introduce you to singles who will share the values that really matter to you.

Why the eharmony experience isn’t like other widower dating sites

At eharmony, we know that dating after bereavement can be challenging, which is why we really take the time to get to know you and what you’re looking for in a new relationship. Whether you’re young or old, recently bereaved or not, if you’re ready to find love again then we’ll introduce you to singles who will share your core values – those really important things that happy relationships are built on.

The eharmonyRelationship Questionnaire does take some time to complete, but it covers all of the core values that we know will be important to you in your relationship. Emotional energy, kindness, humour and adaptability are just a few of the dimensions that we take into consideration, so you can sure you’ll be introduced to people who feel the same way you do when it really counts.

If you’re considering dating again, choosing an online dating website or app that caters to widows and widowers is a great way to start exploring the idea. Unlike other dating agencies, with eharmony, you won’t be overwhelmed by hundreds of profiles and the unforgiving swipe culture. Instead, we’ll send you a batch of profiles every day, carefully chosen because we’re confident that they’ll be a great fit for you. You can choose whether to initiate or respond to messages, and our secure eH Mail system means you don’t have to exchange any personal details until you’re ready.

Is it too soon to be dating again?

At eharmony, we believe that happy relationships can only be found when people are ready to be in a happy relationship. As a widow or widower, young or old, you might worry that it is too soon to be dating again. If you are not ready to start dating again, the process will undoubtedly only throw up more problems. You can listen to dating advice from friends and family, but the only person who will know when you’re really ready is you. Always trust your own instincts.

It’s also worth keeping in mind that having a shared loss doesn’t always mean you’ll share the same values. If you’re a widow or widower considering dating a divorcee or widower, it can be tempting to believe that the loss of a partner is enough to bring two people together. The most important thing to remember, regardless of the situation, is that happy relationships are much easier when you and your partner share the values that really matter long-term.

If you feel that you are ready to find love again, then the eharmony Relationship Questionnaire is a great first step to take. Not only will answering the questions help us to find compatible singles for you, but it will also help you to learn more about yourself, who you are as a widow or widower, and what you really want from a new relationship.

So, if you’re ready to start looking for love again, you can sign up to eharmony today and start meeting compatible singles who are completely right for you.
