Adolescence is a confusing time. One moment you want to be married; the next, you don't. Or so it was for Courtney Stodden, who after two years of marriage, decided to part ways with former Lost star Doug Hutchison, her husband and elder by 35 years.
Wed at the age of 16, "Now, at 19, she's interested in exploring life as an unmarried single young adult – with the freedom to explore her independence," her rep told the U.K.'s Daily Mail. Without reading too much into that loaded statement, we're going to assume a return to dating is on the horizon for the aspiring country singer, and given her past preferences, we've narrowed down our suggestions by age range. Meet your matches, Courtney!

The Victoria's Secret model, decked out in a gray trench, a black shirt and jeans, smiled as she clasped the 36-year-old Bloom's arm. The actor, wearing a baseball cap, flashed a small grin as they strolled along, while Little Flynn nibbled on a frozen pop.
