A year after the death of his wife Jill, Wade and his two daughters Grace and Natalie are still living off the food from Jill's funeral, with Wade throwing himself into work and refusing to discipline his children or set a good example for them. After the food runs out, Wade's friends intervene and tell him that he needs to start dating and get his life back in order, a decision that Grace supports but Natalie does not. Wade sets up a dating profile and goes out on a date with a divorced woman named Danielle, but it goes poorly when he admits that his wife died and Danielle offers to sleep with him out of pity. Wade decides that he will not commit to a relationship until he figures out what he wants. He later learns that Grace and her boyfriend tried to have sex while he was out, which makes him realize that he needs to put his foot down and set boundaries for his kids. At a party for the soccer team he helps manage, his friends are pleased to see him hitting it off with an attractive neighbor.

Wade runs into a problem with his dating life when his latest date, Lizzie, turns out to be too dull and annoying for his tastes; he finds that none of his friends can offer much help since none of them have dated in years. Good-natured to a fault, Wade proves unable to break things off with Lizzie even when Michelle brings in her sister Meg to talk some sense into him. Grace starts leaving home without her father's knowledge, which upsets him until he discovers that his daughter has been secretly taking pictures for her Instagram account so she can feel some sense of normalcy. Once the two reconcile, they talk and Wade recognizes that he doesn't have to stay in an unhappy relationship, giving him the courage to dump Lizzie. Ben's son Noah tries to impress Natalie by eating a bag of sour candy, only to wind up with an upset stomach.

Convinced that Wade has an anger problem, his friends force him to go to a widows support group, where he happens to be the only male attendee present. At first, he sees no point in returning since the group talks about nothing but sex, and he feels that he doesn't have an anger problem. Delia tells him to speak up the next time, which leads to him expressing his anger at other married couples that haven't suffered like he has. The other widows explain to him that he needs to accept his anger in order to move on. After a night of heavy drinking and partying, Wade barely wakes up in time for Natalie's match, and afterwards tells his friends his new-found revelations. He also tells Grace, who's been feeling left out now that the rest of her family aren't so close anymore, that she will never have to worry about him leaving her.

Wade's friends admit that they regularly access his dating profile to spy on him, so he retaliates by changing the password. Forrest then comes up with the idea of creating a fake profile for a woman he names "Zoya" and links it to Wade's account to continue spying. To Forrest's surprise, he comes to enjoy texting his friend as Zoya, upsetting Delia who feels neglected. Unbeknownst to Forrest, Wade is aware of his deception and, goaded by his daughters, forces Forrest to delete the profile by asking Zoya out. The next day, he pranks Forrest by pretending to be upset, but unintentionally hurts his friend's feelings by mocking him. Recognizing that they need to talk to each other as themselves, the two patch things up. Forrest and Delia decide that they want to save up for a boat for when they both retire.

Grace's drama teacher, Mr. Kersey, casts her as Audrey in the school's upcoming performance of Little Shop of Horrors.

He gives her the option to quit, and so she decides to do so. Ben signs commitment-phobic Delia and Forrest up to run the soccer field snack stand, which turns into a disaster as Delia refuses to sell junk food and drives away all of her customers by offering healthy snacks.

Unfortunately, neither has much success, and are ready to leave until Wade pushes Ben to use his "Captain Cristal" personality to make him the center of attention. Forrest gets a kiss on the cheek, which he takes as proof of unfaithfulness to Delia and leaves. Michelle shows up, having seen a picture of Ben surrounded by attractive women, and takes him home.

One of them, Ava, seems to be interested in Wade, but when they land, she turns down his offer of a drink. Michelle and Delia find Grace when she fails to show up for dinner and scold her; Michelle insists, however, that they not tell Wade a thing.
