Going to a funeral is never easy unless you happen to be the date of the person in mourning. Yes you heard right there are single people who actually bring a first time date to a funeral of their loved one. This is typically done so that the two people can see exactly how they can connect on an emotional side that is sad. This is important to many single people that are looking for a serious relationship and do not want to waste their time with someone that is afraid to show their emotional side and even worse cannot comfort someone in their time of need. Which is why going to a funeral is the perfect stop for a first date and although it may seem strange to some people who have been married for some time other single people understand this method of ruling people out of their dating pool. After all dating is difficult enough without falling for someone emotionally to only find out that the person cannot connect show empathy towards someone when it is needed the most. Dating has changed in so many ways that only someone who has been single for a while can truly understand the reasoning for the odd dating locations that are chosen for a first date.
