Just saw this and had to weigh in. First a bit of background. I am married and still given the trouble of 34+ years I would do it again given the same circumstances and I would not change anything. But ask if I would remarry my answer would be an emphatic NO! Women are too hard to train!

That's hysterical.. you sound like my husband though. He insists I come with him to get his hair cut and then I'm expected to tell the barber what he wants.

I would say no. My first 2 marriages went south and my current one is a good marriage. i call him "my keeper hubby". I would not risk a fourth try.

You are very positive that you would find romance again so i'm wondering what places or activities you inhabit and are involved in that put you contact with lots of potential men in your age range?

If you care to share that, that is....if not, I understand.

Many older women have a tough time finding men to date.
I've maintained ties with people/groups from my early years, primarily school and work friends but also the social group I ran with when I was single.

There are always divorced/widowed men and women in the groups who have known each other for decades, and fairly often they pair off. Some studies have suggested that long-ago friendships provide the best basis for late-life romance. I agree!

I'm 40 and pretty sure I'll never get married again.

I'm not against the idea... if the right guy came along and all that. But it's not in my plans.

I have a disabled son I'll be responsible for forever. That might have something to do with it.

Divorced after 30 years of marriage and I now know without a doubt I made the right decision eight years ago. I now realize I should have ended it sooner, but when children are involved, nothing is easy. I'm comfortable being on my own, I'm at peace, and I'm not looking and I did not leave for someone else. I go out socially, mostly platonic, but for me to even consider re-marrying, it would have to be someone that really rocked my world. I'd rather have a friend with benefits relationship, a relationship that I wouldn't call disposable, but one with mutual respect for each other's space. And to take the edge off sounding cold, I do know how to be a good friend, but marriage is a commitment, and not a preferred road. Divorce is expensive and exhausting.
