Loneliness isn’t actually a surprising by-product of widowhood. In fact, there is a deep silence, which often comes with losing a spouse. Even if you are standing in the middle of a crowded room, you may still notice it. Moreover, it is the absence of the person breathing next to you as you go to sleep at night. Furthermore, it is the missing sound of 2 glasses clinking together on your anniversary.
What’s more, your quiet home reminds you that your loved one is gone. Your friends may be good at attempting to ensure that you know that you aren’t alone. Of course, you know that you aren’t friendless. You may call up many people in case you want to hang out. However, you are actually alone.
It is a fact that loneliness is poor company and your need for emotional warmth could become uncontrollable. In addition, this need could stifle your friends until they have nothing left to offer you.
Many widows are looking for ways to escape this loneliness.
Namely, the need for emotional warmth of a 70-year-old widow became uncontrollable, so that she put an ad in the local newspaper that she would like to marry again.
“Husband wanted! Must be in my age group, must not beat me, must not run around on me and must still be good in bed. All applicants please apply in person.”
The following day, the doorbell rang. The 70-year-old widow opened the door and saw a gentleman in a wheelchair with gray hair and with no arms and legs.
The widow said:
“You aren’t asking me to consider you, are you? You don’t have legs!”
The man smiled gently, and said: “That’s why I am not able to run around on you!”
Then, she said: “You do not have arms, as well!”
The old man smiled again: “That’s why I am not able to beat you!”
She raised her eyebrow and said: “Are you good in bed?”
He leaned back, and with a grin on his face, replied: “I rang the doorbell, didn’t I?”
