I am 34 and divorced. The first year or two after my ex and I separated were awful and I dated a lot because I hated being single. I have now come to terms with being single and I am very happy with where I am at in life. I no longer even want to date. Therein lies the problem. I am not interested in a relationship at all. I get asked out a lot but always find excuses.
People are telling me that I am wasting the best years of my life being single and I should be out enjoying myself. I fear I am becoming set in my ways and am never going to want to be in a relationship again. Am I destined to become a single crazy cat lady?

P.S. I have 2 children ages 7 & 9.
Dear Single and Content,
I guess you have not gotten over your divorce yet, but you will. Join some club, ask you friends to introduce you to their male friends. Soon you will be looking forward to going out.
At your age you should be able to judge who is a nice guy and who is not. I admit, it is not easy to find a person of the right age but give it a try. In the meantime be a good parent to your children - they need you.
