This mostly worked, though text messaging could get confusing.

Turned out, dating as a divorced 35-year-old was a great way to pass the time until I felt ready for a relationship again. This came in handy early on, because while single 35-year-old men are looking to get married, single 25-year-men are not. I was skeptical that we were just leftovers who had nothing in common.
Plus, I told them, if he's looking for a relationship, I'm probably not a good candidate right now.
But, I figured, if Robin Wright can snag a hot younger boyfriend after 15 years of marriage and a very public divorce, I could at least give dating a shot. I decided to take my mom's advice and ignore my own hangups.
To my pleasant surprise, my 30-something jadedness confidence combined with the dawn of casual online dating culture made for one damn fun year and a half. No one bats an eye if you go out with a 22-year-old or a 40-year-old. Also, what's the point of going on dates if I am not ready for a relationship? Anyone who knows a single man in his mid-30s wanted to fix me up with him.
Plus, the last time I'd been seriously single, it was 2006; texting was barely a given, much less Tinder.My friends who are still single in their mid-30s are over it - sick of dating and sick of being single.
