Brief background: I (the author) became a widower after a twenty year marriage. My late wife died unexpectedly of an aortic aneurysm. About a year later, my only sibling passed away from colon cancer. Six months later, through my misery, I understood how short and precious life was. I still had love to offer and I needed some happiness. I really was not interested in any crazy dating scene so I decided to join eHarmony. This is also where my story begins.

I’m certain you also have your own personal view of the word honesty. Let's all try not to hurt others by being too honest.
