Game against a much better player, when I feel I hold my own OK (played as white)

I'm rated as a 975 through 85 games on Chess.com. Obv I'm a big newbie, but I felt pretty ok in this match against a 1500ish player who usually smokes me.

I don't think I made any huge blunders or anything, but I def would like any and all opinions on how I played. I ended up resigning, in case that's not really obvious

I'm white:

On move 6 you miss the chance to go up a pawn with exd5 followed by Nxe5.

On move 12, i think Re1 would have put black in very dire straits. He cannot move the knight because of the discovered check, and if he protects the knight you just play f3.

16. Nh3 just allows your pawn-structure to get ruined without any need or benefit. Your no 1 concern should be the liberation of your incarcerated bishop at this point, i would try Nd5 with the idea of attacking c4 by Ne3.

After that it's pretty much one-way traffic, but he doesn't play it very well. Maybe 31. Ke1 puts on more resistance.
