I get so many female clients who are over 35 and divorced who come to me operating under the assumption that they are at an automatic dating disadvantage because of their age. The biggest problem that these women have is not their age, but their mindset.
They tell me how frustrated they are trying to date being in the "over 35" age group.

Together for 11 years, married for 10, 6 year old child. He wouldn’t wear the ring, wouldn’t hold my hand or kiss me in public, wouldn’t talk to me at parties, was just a jerk, not a man. We would stand in front of the mirror, naked, and he would only look at his own body and say what a great body he’s got. And just out of boredom I joined an online dating site and started talking to a few people. He was interesting and showing a huge interest in me, in how I felt, etc. And when he stood behind me, put his arms around me and held me really strong and rubbed me for 10 minutes, I didn’t want this moment to end and almost cried.

And with the prevalence of cheating, a lot of times one partner has already begun a new relationship and the other partner is now seeking to get 'mine.' Once it's been decided by one, or both, partners to end the relationship, most typically both of partners start seeking a new relationship. You'll also make your decision about more than just what you want.
Being separated and not dating is one of the hardest temptations to resist.
