“This wildly varies from person to person,” says Judith Sills, Ph D, a Philadelphia-based psychologist and author of Getting Naked Again: Dating, Romance, Sex, and Love When You've Been Divorced, Widowed, Dumped, or Distracted.
“Everyone ends a relationship by grieving the emotional investment.
For some people, that happens before they move out.
You don't let your children make other decisions for you, so don't let them keep you from dating if that’s something you want to do. “Do a very slow introduction of a new partner,” Sills says.
“WSD is a support group to help people who have lost a partner through separation, divorce or death.
Our approach is gentle, supportive and empowering.”.
Participants are encouraged not to enter into another relationship during the term of the course as this can hamper their long term healing.
WSD aims to provide a safe environment for all participants, both during the course and at social events.
