Website shows 'widows' aren't alone.

TRAVELLING jobs are more common than we realise: pilots, politicians, ship captains, military officers, athletes, sales directors - the list is long and varied.

With partners out of town for months at a time, many people find themselves holding down the fort and trying to nurture long-distance relationships. Which is why a comprehensive website has been launched, www. Effectively single for months at a time, job widows often care for a household, make critical ds ecisions, spend holidays alone and parent without their spouse.

"As a yacht captain, my husband is frequently away from home for long periods of time," explains site founder Julie Seginer. "With more than 2,700 job widows already tweeting, it's time to take this job widow movement to the next level."

The website provides a dynamic and multi-faceted space for job widows to gather, many of whom share similar challenges and have learned to thrive in the "single with partner" lifestyle. As such, the site features relevant articles, story sharing, an upbeat advice column, gabbing with the friends and shopping with fun must-haves.

The site also offers an important connection opportunity for the ladies and their travelling partners. Private time is shared in an online venue, where each couple has a place to meet, leave messages and post pictures for their loved one's eyes only.
