Chris Kyle's Widow Talks Dating: 'I'm Not Saying It's Impossible'
Taya Kyle, the widow of decorated war hero Chris Kyle, who wrote a bestselling autobiography and whose story was seen by millions in the Oscar winning film, American Sniper, is opening up in a memoir about what it was like living through the tragedy of Chris’s death in 2013.
Chris along with his friend Chad Littlefield, were shot and killed by Eddie Ray Routh at a shooting range in Texas and Routh was recently found guilty of both murders and sentenced to life in prison without parole.
INSIDE EDITION’s Meghan Alexander spoke to Taya and she revealed if dating will be in her future.
“I’m not saying it’s impossible, I just don’t get it yet,” the mother of two explained.
While she’s not out searching for a significant other just yet, Taya believes that if she does find someone she may be oblivious about it, “I think if that’s in the cards for me, it’s going to have to hit me over the head and probably surprise me."
Chris Kyle’s widow looks to other women who have lost their spouses with hopes of finding love.
“It would take a really amazing person. I know they are out there, I know there are some widow’s that I know who have found a man who accepts the fact that they love their husband that they lost and that’s ok,” Taya said. “They sort of develop this new heart for a new person without ever tainting the love they have for the first person.”

Even though it’s been over two years since Chris passed away in our interview Taya still wears her wedding ring and feels connected to her late husband.
“I just don’t know how that works because I have a lot of loyalty and love for Chris. I’m aware that I’m only 40 years old, but I don’t think I’ve quite accepted it. I mean that’s the way my life was supposed to go and I still feel very married to him, I still feel very much in love with him,” Taya said.
