: What is another way to say this in reference to a man starting to date again a year after his wife died? I'm trying to avoid cliches. thanks.

The lyrics to "Taking a Chance on Love" would fit the situation nicely. (Words and music by John Latouche and Ted Fetter plus additional music by Vernon Duke.) The first few lines:

Here I go again
I hear those trumpets blow again
All aglow again
Taking a chance on love
Here I slide again
About to take that ride again
Starry eyed again
Taking a chance on love

I thought that cards were a frame-up
I never would try
Now I'm taking that game up
And the ace of hearts is high

Things are mending now
I see a rainbow blending now
We'll have a happy ending now
Taking a chance on love . . .
