You have the power and the strength within you to do it.

What is called for here is a quick reminder of the vows that every single one of us recited.

To my way of thinking, I would have to know someone pretty well before I made the very important decision to become intimate.

Without getting preachy or otherwise standing on moral ceremony, and understanding that the decision to become intimate is possibly the most hugely personal decision that one can make, the easiest and most obvious reply here is that if he is a "stranger," you are not going to be physically intimate with him, are you?

To address her own need and that of millions of other widows like her, Fleet launched Widows Wear Stilettos, a nonprofit organization and website, in 2006. Foster a place where widows could find the help and support they needed.

In the new book , she shares thousands of questions and answers from her site, addressing everything from dealing with grief, to handling the holidays, to finances, to dating.

What I have actually found at the heart of questions such as these is a deeply held fallacy, a myth that has existed for far too long.

“It’s when the drama is over and you face the grey mudflats of the future that the real widowhood begins...In my most humble opinion, it actually gets better but only if you have the widow-tude that it can get better. If you decide that physical intimacy won't be the same (which I can only imagine translates into, "as good as it was before"), then you are right. As the saying goes: If you think you can, you can, and if you think you can't, you're right.
