It can be hard to know when and how to start dating after a breakup or death of a partner. Listen to today’s show to learn valuable tips for dating in the healthiest, most productive way possible after experiencing a loss.

In this episode with Krista StGermain, we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • How to grieve a breakup or death of a partner and why the 5 stages of grief may not always go as you think
  • Debunking common myths around dating after a loss
  • The importance of allowing our emotions
  • How to know when to start dating again
  • Post-traumatic growth and its hopeful message
  • Why it’s ok to distract yourself from the pain of a loss by dating again
  • And much more!

Krista St-Germain is a Master Certified Life Coach, grief expert, widow, mom and host of The Widowed Mom Podcast. When her husband was killed by a drunk driver in 2016, Krista’s life was completely flipped upside down. And while it would have been easy to believe her best days were behind her, thankfully Krista discovered Life Coaching and Post Traumatic Growth and was able to move forward and create a future she could get excited about. Now she coaches and teaches other widows so they can love life again, too.
