Long story short. Dated a guy for 8 months. I'm 42. He's 24. Most amazing time of my life. More mature than anyone I ever dated. I ended the relationship as I'm convinced he wants children. I've have 2 from previous relationship and don't want more at my age. He didn't disagree or try to change my mind so I know he knew our relationship was going absolutely no where. But how do I cope with this loss? Will I ever find anyone who treated me as well as he did! I know I'm going to compare all others to him. Feel stupid feeling like this at my age.

The short answer is: you did it once; you found him. And so you can do it again. You attracted this person into your life. YOU did this. You didn't get lucky, and you don't need to get lucky again.
I would focus on what you want, really want. What have you learned from this relationship? Do you want another young man? Do you want an older man with similar positive traits? Just take your time and focus on the attributes you want in your next mate, and he will find you.
I hope this gives you a little perspective.
Good luck. Love on :-)1
