According to Doreen Horan, LCPC, at the Counseling Center at Stella Maris, a provider of longterm care in Maryland, on average a man starts socializing within one to two years of a wife’s death. What all grief counselors agree on is that at some point, every widow and widower needs to get out there if life is to be meaningful once again.
Planning your re-entry to a new social life is not done overnight, says Erlene Rokowsky, Psy.
For the first year after her husband Mort died of cancer, Mary Childs, now 68, looked mainly to her two sisters and her quilting friends for comfort and a social connection.”I couldn’t do much more than that," says the Lakewood, CO, retired nurse.
“I met a man on Seniors Meet and we have been together for a while now,“ she says.
In person, on the phone, via the Internet, whatever. For those who maintained a social life based on interests and not just couples’ friends, the journey is a bit easier.

At just 2 months, I wonder how fair it is to that woman, as it seems doubtful your father even had time to fully grieve the loss of your mother yet. while your father has every right to do what he needs to do in order to get through this, I also believe you do as well.
And, if it helps you to grieve the loss of your mother to not meet this woman right now, I think you are entitled to that and should not have to meet her yet. But again, in my opinion I believe in order for you to grieve as you need to, then you do not have to meet this woman right now. And so none of us can say your father is doing it the right or wrong way - he has to do it his own way.
