* Many residents of senior-care facilities meet new sweethearts at said facilities and even get married, having the wedding right in the facility. On a less romantic note, it appears that venereal diseases run rampant at such facilities, as the residents have relationships and flings and assorted other, erm, encounters, and (since the women are all well past childbearing age) never seem to wear condoms.

* A weird example in [[RoboShip the Doctor and the TARDIS]] on ''Series/DoctorWho''. The first time they met in human form, they were both several hundred years old. On the other hand, they had been "together" for several hundred years before that too, without the Doctor really grasping how explicit the relationship was. On the other hand, when they first met, they were both instantly smitten with each other and ran off together, the TARDIS was already very old (an antique in fact) at that point, and it's implied the Doctor's first incarnation ''may'' have been rather old at the time too (although he was young by Time Lord standards). On the other hand, she's a sentient starship/time machine and he has a case of TheNthDoctor going on, so when they first meet in human form, his body appears to be in its late twenties and hers appears to be around forty-ish, so it's debatable whether it qualifies for this trope. On the ''other'' other hand, it's debatable whether a couple this bizarre properly qualifies for ''any'' romance trope, so....

* In ''Six Degrees of Celebration 2'', two of the characters, now well into their sixties, haven't been in contact for forty years because the man's letter of reconciliation was never delivered. The letter is found during reparation work at the post office and the woman rushes off to meet her sweetheart, but by now he had given up hope and left on a long-distance flight. The film's main plotline centers around their relatives as well as chance acquaintances trying to bring the couple together at last.
