I chatted with a local writer regarding her mother’s adventures in dating after her father passed away.
She said that her mother started out by meeting men on JDate, an online platform specifically for meeting Jewish singles.
” She also mentions the groups have started to shift to allow couples to attend—mainly those who met through the group and want to stay connected with the friends they’ve met.
This makes things slightly awkward for the singles.
She had three children by three different men and an ex-suitor who had recently bought her a Volkswagen Beetle. Eventually the relationship ended when this woman started questioning why my father had yet to remove my mother’s belongings from the house.
A few months later, my father retired from his company along with several other people.
The other tidbits are not relevant to this story, but one in particular was that her recently widowed father was starting to date again.
The same thing had happened to a childhood friend when her mother passed away several years earlier.
Last Thanksgiving when I went to visit a former roommate, she pulled me aside to tell me about a few “holiday grenades” that dropped prior to my arrival.There was a group retirement party and one of the fellow retirees seemed interested in him.Her husband had also passed away, and I suggested he might want to hang out with her since she understood what it was like to lose a spouse.And, of course, a very similar bomb landed on my birthday almost seventeen years ago.I recall sitting in a chain restaurant in Henrietta while my father thumbed through photographs of a woman at least ten years his junior. My mother had died exactly six months prior, and, frankly, I just wanted him to stop talking so I could go home and vomit the processed spinach and artichoke dip that had started to churn in my stomach.
