Even if I had only been dating the person for three days, I would still have some grief over what could have been. A funeral is a good way for some people to find closure, so I would go if that's what I thought would help. I wouldn't approach the family or anything, but would just watch from the back. When I was in high school, a friend and ex-boyfriend of mine passed away in an accident and my mom and I went to his funeral even though we only went on one date. We were pretty good friends too. His closer friends didn't want to go to the funeral and instead went to visit his grave on their own as a group to deal with their feelings. So you should do whatever helps you process the loss.

In this hypothetical does the deceased have a hot relative that is either single/divorced/widowed? If so..possibly.

Funerals are for the living, not the dead. I might go. It depends how I feel at the time.

I don't really have much knowledge on how funerals work. Are people invited to them, or is information about the time and place simply spread around for any who wish to attend?

If I was asked to attend or felt like people would expect to see me, sure, I'd attend. Aside from that, funerals don't really do anything for me, they don't have much value to me. I would want to do the respectful and polite thing, though, whatever that is.

Depends. Did you meet his/her parents/family? Or would you be a stranger there?

I couldn't agree more.
