Dating after being a young widow

Not long after Matthew died, I went to a friend’s birthday celebrations.

It was hard, but I got through it, even enjoyed myself a little. At the beginning, I couldn’t imagine ever loving anyone else. I've met someone, also widowed, and we're taking it very slowly. No-one can replace Matthew but this is another man I feel I can love."In the early days, grief was every part of every minute of every day.

When I tell them I'm a widow, people react in strange ways: "But you're so young!

I don't know how you've coped." Others get flustered.

Karen still lives in Derbyshire, where she works as a hairdresser and a doctor's receptionist. Years ago, my Dad said to me, 'People don't want to see you miserable'.
