Added DiffLines:

* All the main characters from the Trigger Web animation ''Anime/TurningGirls'' are 28 or 29, and still single. Each episode deals with their lives as older, single women. This trope is invoked on one of the girl's 30th birthday, as she becomes suddenly unable to attract male companionship.

* ''Literature/BridgetJones'' turns thirty and starts angsting about not having a proper boyfriend. She makes it one of her New Year's Resolutions, and the first book is about her romances with HandsomeLech Daniel Cleaver and pompous Mark Darcy. In Bridget's mind it's preferable to her own nightmare of dying alone and being found dead in an alley "half-eaten by Alsatians".



* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': The Tyrells are reluctant to marry Cersei specifically because she's too old. Although it's not cultural perception in this case, but a legitimate doubt if a 40-year old woman in a medieval setting is suitable to give birth to an heir.



* The song, "Past Your Prime," in ''Theatre/LilAbner'' parodies this trope.
* The titular Rita in ''Theatre/EducatingRita'' is twenty-six and her friends and family expect her to start having babies at once.



* A male version is given a minor examplie in ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' as a VERY brief Joke. Tomitake quips "A man becomes is more attractive at 30!", in response to Mion quipping "You like photography so much, you missed your chance to be married!" Tomitake himself isn't married but he is dating Miyo.

On the antagonistic side, a PunchClockVillain is often a Christmas Cake. She tends to be very attractive but is relegated to cake status by annoying habits. The other problem occurs if she's also stuck in an ImprobablyFemaleCast or any such place where men are slim pickings. The CompetenceZone might force her to hang around and even fawn over men ''much'' [[{{Shotacon}} younger]] [[{{Ephebophile}} than her]].

* ''Manga/{{Mahoromatic}}'' turns the idea into a gag, where a much older Suguru is shocked to find his old [[{{shotacon}} boy-chasing]] teacher looking exactly the same.

* PlayedForLaughs at implication in ''Anime/CarnivalPhantasm'' in the Ilya's Castle Special: After defeating Rider, Ilya boasts that mature women had no value, then Caster retaliates by calling her a {{lolicon}} doll that doesn't understand the true value of mature women. Ilya retaliates again by defeating Caster... but not after claiming this:
