I happened to be acquainted with this widower (and belated spouse) just as an observer some 14 years back. His spouse passed 2.5 years back and soon after he started to arrived at dances mostly attended by seniors. Within the last 12 months plus some months, I expanded to have ” this crush” we more frequently danced together on him as. He talked of their spouse and exactly how he wasn’t certain that she was the love of his life and misses her so much if he could ever love anyone again. The 2009 September, from him, he asked if I would like to go out to another dance on the weekend, saying he found me to be very attractive and wanted to get to know me more after me being the recipient of some nice comments. My heart had been planning to burst….my dream ended up being coming to fruition……on our first outing (picking me up- dance then dinner) he stated he wanted to allow it to be specific if we go out and he pays my way/buys dinner…etc that he expected nothing in return.
