* Act I, Scene 2 of the famed Creator/WilliamShakespeare tragedy ''Theater/RomeoAndJuliet'' described Juliet's situation as a Renaissance Italian version of this. Juliet is only 14 but also in a world where girls are normally married off as soon as they hit puberty. As she's told, someone her age is usually ''[[TeenPregnancy already a mother]]''.

The ChristmasCake trope is related to NeverASelfMadeWoman. As the Japanese-culture specific variant of OldMaid, only Japanese examples should be listed here. Also, a woman being single and 25 years or older is '''not''' enough to qualify for this trope, even if they ''are'' Japanese. In order to fall under this trope, the woman must make a specific reference to the concept of "needing to have been married by a certain age" - typically by either having a complex about being older and unmarried, or making it clear that they don't believe in the concept of being "too old to marry". If the trope itself [[DiscussedTrope is brought up]] but not in reference to any specific female characters, that counts as an example as well.

If a non-Japanese entry is to be added, it must be one where the trope is discussed ''and'' where the age where an eligible bachelorette becomes a spinster is both specific ''and young'' (25 is still considered young in many cultures; it should be lower for a non-Japanese entry to count such that it stands out).

* Haruna Sakurada from ''Anime/SailorMoon'' is one of the most famous examples of this, specially in the first anime. in its second episode she has a sobbing HeroicBSOD when a BrainwashedAndCrazy Umino flips her skirt and gives the audience and the boys quite a PantyShot ([[DefiledForever "... I'm soileeeed! I'll never get marrieeeeed!"]]), shows LOTS of envy when a fellow teacher accepts a marriage proposal and then almost catfights with Rei and Usagi for the bridal bouquet, and when she ''does'' get an off-screen prospect boyfriend and the guy cancels their date due to work she becomes ''very'' irritable. On the episode following that Panty Shot, Usagi hears a love letter on the radio that came from her and can't believe it came from her teacher [[LampshadeHanging seeing as how she's too old for this stuff]].

* Miz Mishtal in ''Anime/ElHazardTheMagnificentWorld'' is another example of this; her first appearance shows her negative reaction to a letter from one her old (and married) schoolmate.

* Miz Mishtal in ''Anime/ElHazardTheMagnificentWorld'' is another example of this; her first appearance shows her negative reaction to a letter from one her old (and married) schoolmate. Of course, the trope then gets famously subverted soon after when she meets Fujisawa. Since both are in their late 20's, it works out well for all involved.

* Koumoto Akari, [[TwoTeacherSchool the teacher of the school]] in ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'', is considered a LivingLegend for her sheer number of failed attempts at getting a boyfriend, and her inability to attract any man is treated as an almost supernatural aura that deprives even [[MsFanservice Shiho]] of her sexiness when the latter tries to give her advice. Her [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld great-great-grandmother]] [[{{Troll}} Akane]] takes an intense delight in reminding her, and often pays dearly for it. ** It doesn't help that she's inhumanly strong, extremely prone to violence, and her ideal man is a literal Prince Charming on a white horse.

* Mayumi is one in ''Manga/BokuraWaMinnaKawaisou''. Some of the comedy in the series is derived from her terrible luck with men, and how she always laments when a younger female coworker announces she either has a boyfriend, or is getting married. And she always seems to go after JerkAss men who have a tendency to be two-timers, which only exacerbates this problem.

* Robin from ''Manga/OnePiece'', as a 28 year old unmarried woman, qualifies for this trope, except that that fact doesn't seem [[NoHuggingNoKissing to matter at all in that universe.]] ** Funnily enough in the movie, Z, she ends up de-aged back to 18 by a foe's Devil Fruit. Usopp makes a comment that accidently implies this and she wasn't amused to say the least.
