Dating in your late 30s (especially if you are dating after divorce with kids like me) is sort of like sifting through a garbage can, hoping to find a huge diamond and a pair of Manolo Blahniks. I don’t mean to say that every available man is worthless when you’re in your late 30s but rather that the game is hard, and guess what, ladies: it’s still a game, even at our age. Here are some truths you need to know if you’re about to head out into the dating pond in your late 30s.
1. They Want Them Young
A lot of men want their ladies young. These are the bachelors that hit late-30s and into mid-40s and suddenly realized, “Oh snap! My sperm is getting old, too, wouldn’t you know? And now that I am all grown up, I think it’s time I settled down. I think I will pick a nice 25-year-old.” Even though you’re their age or even quite younger than them by years, you’re still old to them. It’s BS. The right one won’t care that you’re not in your 20s, absolutely, and you’re not old, but yet there are guys who will completely shut you down, especially online, if you’re a year over his age range. It is what it is.
