(Newser) – Lisa Niemi said in 2010 that life after husband Patrick Swayze's death wasn't "getting better," but now, three years after his death, Niemi is finding happiness again—at least according to the National Enquirer. She's been dating jeweler Albert DePrisco for a few months, sources say, and the wealthy businessman, 57, has been giving Niemi, 56, lots of expensive jewelry and has already introduced her to his parents. (Bizarrely, that meeting reportedly took place at the ever-so-swanky Ruby Tuesday.)

They were introduced by a mutual friend and "from the moment they met, there was an attraction between them," a source says. Since he lives in Florida and she in California, their relationship has involved quite a few cross-country commutes. Conveniently enough, Niemi is a pilot and has flown her own plane to DePrisco's place at least twice. "She got out of the plane, fell into his arms, and they shared a long, steamy kiss," says a witness to their most recent reunion.

Digusting. Just a few months ago, she was a grieving widow, and now, she's flitting around with another man? So much for her really loving Patrick.

It's time to move on. She was a faithful wife to Swayze, but there's no reason for her to be alone and miserable the rest of her life. I wish her well.
