Life is short. Think about that while you are contemplating what you want out of life. You've already invested close to half your life so far, and
finding yourself single again has to have a bit of influence on the way you are thinking. It's perfectly natural to lust after younger girls, and
it's true that they have fewer "issues" than women your own age, and they are easier to manipulate.
The downside to younger women is that haven't found themselves yet. I see a future where you'll have invested a few more years of your life, and
the young thing without a range of experience wants to learn more, and moves on.
You have not stated you are looking for a LTR. I think you are still licking your wounds from your marriage, trying to balance out some inner
conflict, and associating the pain you've gone through with the mentality that women your own age will hurt you again. Nothing wrong with that. You
need to heal first.
Personally, I'll pick intelligence over looks any day of the week, and there are a lot of intelligent woman out there at many different stages in
their life. If you are infatuated with "appearance", by all means go for it. Best of luck.
You need a "rebound" relationship, and badly. Something trivial and light, with no strings attached, and after you find a friend with benefits I
think you'll start to see clearly again.
Finally, one more sagely bit of wisdom: Only YOU know what you want out of life. When you figure that out, go for it, and never look back. Don't
let anyone tell you anything otherwise.
