Our expert says:
Grief is one thing, and it is indeed hard work, and counseling ca help with that. But loneliness is a separate component of the problem. A counsellor again can help one gain confidence, and perhaps help you to work out better ways of assessing prospective pals. Take care that your loneliness doesn't encourage you to rush into new relationships, but take your time and apply your pwn wisdom to getting to know new friends.
You're right to hesitate about being made happy by someone who is apparently inclined to make others unhappy. See it both as a sign that this particular relationship is not a great idea, but that new friendships ca indeed be pleasant and that you are very much capable of them.
People often meet compatible others not in a direct date-search, but by getting involved in hobbies, charities, other activities that match their own interests, enabling them to meet others with similar interests
