Members IlanaEpsteinRabone Posted September 11, 2010 Members Report Share Posted September 11, 2010 I'm not sure how to handle this! My mother passed away in May from Ovarian Cancer. It was very sudden as she was fine up until December and in May she was gone. Now my father is telling me that he posted an online profile on a dating website and is starting to go on dates. I'm trying to be supportive, but its only been a short time since mom passed. I know that he's lonely and needs companionship, but I'm wondering whether its too soon. I don't want him to get hurt! I tried to tell him my feelings about his dating, but he told me he's not trying to replace my mother, just needs some companionship. Is it normal to feel this way? I seem to be the only one in my family (brother and father) who is still grieving. They seem to be doing fine while I am in counseling and attending support groups.Thanks!
