"John's had no shortage of friends wanting to set him up and there are a lot of women who would love to go out with him," shares an OK! insider. "John is flattered, but he just isn't interested."
The grief-stricken Gotti star, 67, recently confessed that he was so "saturated" with sadness after Preston succumbed to breast cancer last July that he isolated himself so that he could mourn "without any interference."
Travolta's been spending most of his time at home with his daughter Ella, 21, and son Ben, 10, "because he still needs time to process his loss," the insider explains. "No one wants to push him because they understand he's torn between opening himself up to love again and staying single and being the best father he can be. Until John can figure things out, everyone is giving him the space he needs."
"Living in mourning is something personal," Travolta said of grieving for his wife of 28 years.
Last year, Travolta took to Instagram to share some heartfelt words on what would have been his late wife's 58th birthday.
"Happy Birthday hon!" the actor captioned two side-by-side photos — a picture with Preston on their wedding day and another picture of his parents on their special day. "I found this photo of my mom and dad's wedding. It was nice to see ours alongside theirs. All my love, John."
The two got married in 1991 after meeting on the sets of The Experts in 1989.
After Preston died in July 2020, the Pulp Fiction star shared the tragic news of her death on social media, writing: "It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer."
"She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many," he added in the emotional post. "My family and I will forever be grateful to her doctors and nurses at MD Anderson Cancer Center, all the medical centers that have helped, as well as her many friends and loved ones who have been by her side. Kelly's love and life will always be remembered."
