Their negativity was surprising and quite upsetting at times. One friend suggested I should just focus on being by myself, while a particularly charming family member questioned why being a mother wasn’t ‘enough for me’.

What became immediately clear is that lots of people my age are like Tom – old before their time and acting like we’ve been married for 30 years.At first, it seemed exciting creating profiles on and Plenty of Fish and immediately getting loads of messages.But I soon got the wind knocked out of my sails when I opened up to friends and family about my newfound love life.Some friends have implied that as I’m also approaching 40, I shouldn’t be worried about sex or physical attraction.But I refuse to accept that companionship is all I have to look forward to, even at the ‘advanced’ age of 38.WHEN I told Tom*, a guy I was dating, that I didn’t want to see him any more as we ‘wanted different things’, he probably thought I meant marriage and commitment.You know, the things women are so unimaginatively accused of wanting more than men?I realise I’m not a teenager any more, but that doesn’t mean I want to fast-track to a relationship that involves arguing over the remote control when Match of The Day is on.Then there is simply my lack of free time – my son goes to stay with his dad every other weekend, so I have precisely 48 hours a fortnight to have fun. In truth, I doubt we’re even seen as a great catch and imagine lots of people think I should just settle for whoever I’m lucky enough to get.Gradually I introduced him to Josh, and I also felt like I could trust him with my post-baby body.That’s another part of hook-ups I’ve found difficult – someone who isn’t the father of my child (and therefore has no obligation to be kind) seeing my body.
