I started dating my wonderful amazing delightful fellow a few weeks after my 35th birthday. Getting married in the fall after seven years together.

I was in a terrible relationship between the ages of 30 and 38. I met my wonderful husband when I was 40 and I wouldn’t change a thing :). I wouldn’t have appreciated him if I’d met him when I was younger. Now, I remember the kind of man I could have ended up with and am thankful for him so much more. 

You have to kiss those frogs to appreciate the prince that’s waiting for you.

I started dating my wonderful amazing delightful fellow a few weeks after my 35th birthday. Getting married in the fall after seven years together. I live in LA , which is not exactly the easiest town to date in.  previous relationship had been ten years and was pretty hard to leave, because we had been together so long. Both of us (the ex and I) are much better off now.

Yes! Yes! It is possible! I did not meet my husband until I was 35, and I’m a pretty normal person;) Many people in my circle meet their spouse in their mid 30’s.

I met my Fiance when I was 32 and I’ll be 35 when we get married. I feel like we met exactly when we were supposed to. There is no cut off date for when you can find the person who is right for you. I’m happy I met my Fiance now as the experiences I had before have made me a better person and a better partner.

Hugs to you for what you are going through. But you seem like a strong woman who knows when to let go. I applaud you for that. I am 25 years old and I can still tell you YES! You can definitely find someone else and live a long and happy life in every aspect of life. You are just getting started! Congratulations on starting over and making *you* happy!

I met DH a month before turning 36. Got married at 38. Had a daughter at 39 and were expecting a son in July – I’m 41 now 🙂

At 35, you’re barely halfway through the average life expectancy. Plenty of time to find a good partner 🙂

I met my Fiance when I was 41. We are getting married in October and I’m 43.

Don’t let your age be an issue, becuase it’s not. You can find love at any age.

maxfluffy:  Of course it’s possible! Life doesn’t end just because one relationship does. My aunt did not meet her husband until she was 46 and it’s the best relationship she’s had even after being married twice before. I’m aware it can get lonely especially in the beginning of a breakup but please don’t settle for less.

I filed for divorce in my 40s, sure that I was choosing to be alone and happy over married and miserable. And, when I wasn’t looking, my wonderful SO came into my life and almost two years later we are now shopping for rings. 

I do think your first and primary priority should be to create a happy life for yourself, on your own. When you are happy you are much more likely to find someone to be happy with. Best wishes to you in this new chapter of your life!

Of course!!  I didn’t meet H until I was 37 and he was 40.  I’d been alone for 15 years and he’d had a couple of short-term relationships.  When we met, we were like “thank GOD!” and got married 11 months and 3 days later.

I don’t have a success story yet, but newly single and on the cusp of 34, I’m starting the same quest. For what it’s worth, you’re not alone!
