I went to an event today alone... My stbx (I can't believe I just stbx because i want to stay in denial where there is hope) Anyway- My stbx would typically attend everything w/ me like weddings & birthdays such as this. Everyone there knows me pretty well & were very supportive, paying me nice compliments & asking how I am doing. But the pity, I could hear it in their voices & see it in their facial expressions. I felt so uncomfortable... I ate, danced & laughed- tried to be as cordial & as social as I could, but but the end of the party I was just plain miserable.. I don't want people to pity me... I've been reading all kinds of literature about moving on & rebuilding self-esteem & I thought going out & spending time w/ friends today would help.. Not so much..

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
