I am a 41 year old man who’s 19 year relationship just ended. My wife lost her 4 year battle with cancer. She died 2 only months.
Since she passed away several of my friends (women) have been treating me very differently, they seem interested in a romantic/physical relationship, 2 of the bolder ones have come right out and asked me out already.
The woman I am most interested in asking out has been a long time friend. I really feel like we would be a good match. But I was going to wait several months before asking her out, seams weird asking someone out so soon.
I haven’t accept any of the offers from the first 2 woman, because I don’t want to mess-up what could be with this woman. Telling them I am not ready.
Should I tell these 2 woman why I said no, or does that just make me look like a jerk?
