I am a widower of 15 years who started dating a widower of 2 years last summer. The first 10 months was wonderful. I met his children, family and friends and everyone says we make a great couple. We get along wonderfully. However 2 months ago when it was the 3 year anniversary of his wife's death he withdrew from our relationship. He bought flower for the cemetery (which I totally understand) but he says he should of bought me flowers. I told him I welcome her memory into our relationship. He then started to talk about her birthday and their wedding anniversary which was last weekend. For the past 2 months he has stopped by and visited for a couple of hours and there have been a few phone calls. When I asked him 2 weeks ago if we were going to see each other again he smiled and said maybe,later. I think he just needs time and space, but I worry about him. My heart is broken. Any suggestions? Do I leave him alone? I worry about him and love him dearly?
