fall in love againIt was magic the moment you met. The conversation was effortless, your interests so complimentary it was almost eerie, and, well, the sparks—right away you were hot for each other.

How to Quickly Spot Red Flags in Dating

red flags in datingThis is a guest post by Cupid’s Cronies, a matchmaking website. (The opinions are those of the author. Last First Date doesn’t take responsibility for differing opinions).

Going out on a first date can be risky!  Let’s be honest, we’ve all had disastrous first dates that have sent us running.  The main reason it’s risky is that your date will probably be a stranger to you.  You are taking a calculated risk that could either pay off — you’ve met your future soul mate! Or it could blow up in your face if your date turns out to be very weird or even dangerous. That’s why it’s important to quickly spot red flags before, during, and after a date. It’s easier than you may think.

Dating a Widow Who Won’t Remove Photos of Her Late Husband

dating a widowHi Sandy,

Five months ago, I met the most wonderful woman. She lost her husband 3 years prior to us meeting. Our relationship has grown quickly, probably because we’re both 58 and know what we want in a relationship. I’m spending more and more time with her. We are talking about moving in together and possibly getting a new home.

Where I need you to chime in is about the family pictures around the house, most of which include her husband. I realize this is where her children where raised, and her husband was taken from her. She didn’t have a choice as I did with my divorce.

While I’m okay with some photos of her late husband, my heart aches at seeing him as a screen saver on her computer or his nameplate on her desk. At what point can I expect her to change these things or put them away? I know he is deceased and isn’t a threat. I feel she is trying to hang on to some of those memories, which I can understand to a degree. Yet, I’m thinking she hasn’t fully let go and truly ready to move on. Is this my issue that I’ve got to get past? Do I have some jealousy over a deceased person? Can I gently ask her to change or remove some of these items?
