I got divorced recently (after 8 years of separation) and this year I will be 60. Although being single allows you to finally live your own life accordingly to your own rules, it is hard to say that it is in any way fulfilling. There is always unexplored potential. I do my research in my area, take care of my grad students and other students, find time to pursuit my interests in historical knowledge which is both, related to all kinds of conspiracy theories as well as belonging to the main stream historical fields, I do paintings and/or drawings, travel and explore other cultures, make friends around the world and learn all the time. Learning is the most important part of my life. You are probably brain-dead person if you cannot learn anymore! For me learning Chinese (in my age of 60) became an obsession and I am doing a progress (I already know 4 languages). Please remember knowledge is the real power. Lack of it is a disaster.
The basic problem is that one believes that everything is real, and thus everything is treated as such.
