I lost my husband to cancer almost 3 years ago. Several people had suggested that I go on line and start dating, but there was no way I would even think about it because I was pretty nervous and didn't think I could trust anybody. Well, I finally decided that I would give it a shot with all kinds of "rules" that I would follow in the dating process. The first week I was online, I received a flirt from a nice guy and I immediately could tell this was a good man. What particularly "sold" me was the pictures of him with his family. I was very impressed. He had lost his wife 6 1/2 years ago also to cancer and has single-handedly raised 7 beautiful children. I basically through all caution to the wind and invited him and his children to my house for FHE. I figured that a second marriage at our age is not only about how compatible we are but it is a whole "package" deal with our kids being a big part of the success of any future marriage. So, kind of crazy, but perfect that our first date was at my house with 6 of his 7 children and my daughter. We all hit it off immediately! And here we are . . . our wedding date is scheduled for Dec. 8th. I couldn't be happier! He is everything I had ever hoped for!
