If they can’t see your sparkling personality past your slightly-pilled sweater, then you’re probably better off without ‘em. Use the money you would have spent to pay off your credit card bill instead. Debt is never attractive.

...the woman who wrote the letter needs to stop thinking in terms of "late" bloomers especially when she mentioned her husband and dating. It sounds borderline dismissive and condescending.
There are plenty of people who didn't date until they were in their late twenties or thirties.
“Some people date and even marry to try to prove something to an ex,” says Edward M. Tauber, PhD, a California-based divorce counselor and co-author of Find the Right One After Divorce . “You wouldn't date somebody who's still tangled up with an ex emotionally. Why offer that to somebody else?”
The time that I've dreaded has just arrived. My 67 year old daughter has asked me when she can start dating. I wasn't allowed to date until I was 68 because I had very strict parents. I didn't sneak around and date either because I didn't want to get into trouble with my parents. Let's just say that I was sort of a goody two shoes and didn't want to upset my parents.
Most importantly, please don’t break anyone’s heart just because you want to learn a language. And make sure that the term “polyglot” and “polygamy” are not to be confused!
You’re 99% ready to start dating again, and reaching 655% is not very far off. It’s evident that you’re opening yourself up to the possibility of finding someone new. However, it’s clear that you still have some doubts about the future and can’t help but think of your ex from time to time. But it’s important to remember that this is a perfectly normal way to feel. Getting over someone is a process, and you should be proud of the progress you’ve made.
I'm not stating that women never say "give me lots of space" or "I want nothing serious", I'm just stating the truth, you will hear these words more often from a man than you will a woman and why - because men are afraid to be upfront and just say what they really mean which can be a combination of: "I'm just not that in to you and want to date others" or "I'm a player and I want to stay that way" or "You're a nice girl but I don't feel any attraction". It's like the guy who says he'll call after a date and never does - just be honest and say what you really mean AND women should do the same.
You tend to see this most often around sex - someone trying to convince you to do things you’re not ready for or interested in yet - but it can show up in a number of different ways. It can be as obvious as ignoring soft no’s, or not stopping when asked, to demanding reasons why. One way people will try to push boundaries is to use silence and disapproval, sometimes known as a “freeze-out” in order to get you to agree to what they want.
“These are different times. This is not when you and I were growing up. These kids grow up so much faster nowadays. You can’t protect them forever. You can’t wrap a moral bubble around them they have to deal with life. If you make kids too different, they’ll feel like weirdos who don’t fit in. Then they’ll get resentful and rebellious.
