As you list your “must haves,” try not to censor them; your subconscious may know more about what you need than your rational mind does at this point.
Dear Roe I’m a 38-year-old woman who has been single for three years after my divorce.
I’ve recently started using online dating sites and am trying to meet someone and hopefully start a new relationship. The men my age who seem interested are very few and far between, but I’m getting a lot of attention and responses from men in their 20s.
However, as these forms of social and professional capital have historically been denied to women and undervalued in women, older women don’t enjoy the same sense of desirability.Second, dating is weird for most people, no matter their age or relationship history, so don’t be discouraged by any odd trends you experience.
