In any event, I read Single and Divorced as the same thing when I'm looking at profiles. I'd like to think that most women will not look down upon a guy for being divorced.
Separated I'm a little more leary of, because you never really know just how separated she is. Even though things didnt work out your previous relationship, albeit unsuccessful, shows that you have the capacity to love, trust, share, and commit.
These individuals probably haven't been on a date since they were in their late 20's or 30's, and are just trying to get back into the dating world now after a long absense.
There are many people like this on our site, people who are searching for someone but unfamiliar or even slightly reluctant about the entire process, so there's no need to feel intimidated.
It doesn't matter how long you've stopped dating; when you're ready to date and love again, you still can!

In the past, dating had always been for the younger crowd - people in their 20s and 30s were the most prevalent age groups that engaged in meeting other people through the internet.
These days, however, lots of older singles have joined the dating scene, as they increasingly feel that it's never too late for them to find love in their twilight years.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... I tell everyone I am divorced when IMing or emailing, or even on the phone and no one has ever had a problem with it...
Your life has changed and you aren’t sure where to begin with building a new life. Once the dust has settled, you may start wondering how to start meeting divorced people that fit into your new life. Depending on how long it has been since you dated, it can be more than a little scary to get back in the game.
Not to mention the fact, you are pretty certain that you want to share that new life with someone eventually. It can be nerve-wracking to figure out where to even start.
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. When I do see someone who says they are separated I take it as exactly that... if they chose to lie, well it will come out in the wash eventually... The divorce is in the works..for some reason they are never cut and dry.
I'm wondering how many people, when reading profiles look twice at someone who is separated vs being single or divorced. When it finally goes through I'll just put down single, cause like AAL says, it's almost like a bad omen to tell someone your divorced.
At points in your life you need to be a bit selfish, obviously we're not suggesting that you try to go into your old university pub for a discount pint, but going into a nice after work bar in the city is perfectly fine.
