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.
Men who have waited to have kids or who had kids with their first wife but perhaps not as many as they would have liked, are looking for a fertile woman.
You could be "Fertile Myrtle" and they might not know it simply because you're over 35 and they didn't bother to ask because you didn't fit the criteria.
You could be gorgeous, witty, successful, and smart and it won't matter.
In fact, the better of a woman you are, it seems, the more apt they are to reject you out of intimidation.
You're young enough to be considered sexy, but old enough to be considered seasoned, so as soon as you post your online profile — bam! They will message you as young as 18 and as "old" as 25, wanting you to be their sexual teacher and some of them will bluntly ask and others will be dying for a "relationship," which really means they're looking for a mother figure that will have sex with them. So now you're intimidating, when before at 25, you were sweet and unassuming.
