Single women age 50+ often fall in love with widowers, who convince themselves and the woman they're dating that they have healed and are ready for a new relationship. Cautiously, these women start to believe their new man is ready for love. They open their heart. And then, the widower bolts upright in his bed and shouts, "I can't do this anymore." He dumps the woman and breaks her heart. Beware.
