I'm so sorry you lost your husband. I can't imagine how hard it's been on you and your son.

I hate to be a downer, but if you find yourself talking about your husband to your dates, it probably means you're not quite ready for a relationship. While it's understandable that you want someone to fill that hole in your life, you need to be in a healthier state of mind for any relationship to have any kind of success.

Have you seen a grief counsellor? I don't think anyone could get over what you've lived through without some sort of professional help. Check your local churches or even phone book for support groups. You have to get to a point where the wound doesn't feel so fresh before you can start to move on from it. You've been through hell, but you deserve a happy life and to honor your husbands memory by helping your child have a happy life as well.

I wish you so much happiness and love, but don't rush yourself towards it. Get some professional help in dealing with your loss, and try to immerse yourself in the relationships you already have, with family, friends, and your son. I know none of those relationships could take the place of what a significant other could provide, but by fostering these relationships you will make yourself happier. People are attracted to happiness, and when you find yourself in a better place mentally, love will probably come more naturally.

Keep your head up, hun, and best of luck.
