Considering this is a person that I had only just met a short time prior to our beginning to date, and further because it is inherent to the scenario that we did not know one another well, I would assume that my presence would be confusing for the family of the deceased. I mean, think about the course a three day long relationship would follow. You'd have about one date under your belt. Just imagine showing up at someone's funeral, and when you're asked who you are and what your relationship with the deceased was you had to say "Oh, I went on a date with him/her a few days ago. Beyond that we have virtually no connection whatsoever. I know next to nothing about him/her."

It'd be incredibly awkward for everyone.

Some will go and some won't go. As for me, I have no idea.

I would most likely go since the chances are that anyone that I choose to date is likely going to be someone that I really do care for. In the case that we aren't so close, I would probably force myself to go anyways since a death is a death and I think it would mean at least something to those who really mourn their loss.

I definitely would. It may not have been long but I mattered to them

I'd only want to go if I'm super close to that person or if they're family. I would just go to their grave/mausoleum one day and say my goodbyes privately.

I would feel shocked and a little sad. Wouldn't go to the funeral. 3 days isnt enough time to get to know someone. I'd move on and probably forget about that person honestly.

Honestly, I wouldn't know how to feel.

i would go to pay my respects, it doesn't matter if you knew them for a life time or just three days, it take's quite a lot of trust to get into a relationship, so honor that trust?

To be honest, I don't know. I imagine I would ask myself if I had the right to go.

Three day relationship? That's very brief..

I wouldn't ask to go to the funeral, although I would attend if the family invited me for whatever reason. Remember, funerals aren't for the departed so much as the people who knew and loved them dearly. I'd feel pretty disrespectful to intrude on close friends and family in their grief when I was only barely getting to know the deceased.

I'd probably send a sympathy card to their family and/or make a donation to whatever charity they've specified in the obituary (since nobody ever seems to want you to send flowers). As far as they'd be concerned, I'm essentially a total stranger.

Honestly, if my box of cereal out lived our relationship, then it wasn't long enough for me to develop actual emotions and feelings for me to truly feel attached enough to mourn your loss and go to the funeral. So I'd say no.
