* A ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' episode about the rape and murder of an elderly woman had the detectives questioning one of ''several'' lovers that she had (thus revealing her to have been a [[DirtyOldMan Dirty Old Woman]], who was only in his mid-20's. When Stabler reacts with disgust and judgement, the young man simply shrugs and explains his preference: "They're more experienced, they're less inhibited, and there's no chance of knocking them up."

* The ''Series/MasterpieceTheatre'' miniseries ''Reckless'' had the protagonist, Owen Springer, falling in LoveAtFirstSight with Anna Fairley, who just happens to be his boss' wife. ''This'' is the main focus and conflict of the story. The fact that she's 10-15 years older than him is never an issue to him or in the context of the show, though it is touched on in the sequel, where despite several years of domestic bliss, she's reluctant to marry him, fearing that he'll dump her for a younger woman so as to have children (it doesn't help matters that this is what her husband did). It takes a lot of work for him to assure her otherwise.

* Very sweetly subverted in ''[[Anime/KotetsuJeeg Kotetsushin Jeeg]]''. Hiroshi Shiba, the original Kotetsu Jeeg, goes missing for decades, and Michi, his combat partner/girlfriend eventually grows old enough to have a granddaughter. When Hiroshi comes back, having never aged at all (on account of him being a cyborg), Michi sadly tells him that she feels ashamed that he has to see her like that. Hiroshi answers that he doesn't care, because [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming he'll always love her just the same. D'AWW!!!]]

* In ''Literature/BridgetJones: Mad About the Boy'', Bridget (51) dates Roxter (30), who enthusiastically talks about how great it is to be with a "cougar." Bridget's friend Talitha is 60 and seems to attract similar guys.



* Stephen Colly in ''Literature/ICaptureTheCastle'' ends up having sex with Leda Fox-Cotton. Movie-wise, all they do is show her playing with his hair late at night, but [[ShippingGoggles you know what's happened]].
* Zar-bettu-Zekigal, from Creator/MaryGentle's ''Literature/RatsAndGargoyles'', explicitly prefers older women (shortly after she's first introduced, she starts rhapsodizing over her fortyish landlady Evelian's laugh lines). When she later becomes infatuated with the Hyena (who's only got about ten years on Zari), it mystifies her that she's crushing on someone so young.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Xander Harris harbors an unspoken desire for Joyce Summers. He's a conquistador! And for some Sunnydale High teachers as well. And Anya, who is 1120 years old.
* In ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', it is a one episode thing, but they had a little FlightOfRomance so it is worth a mention. [[spoiler:Warrior Angel]], who is actually only 12 years old, is obviously attracted to the then-[[ContinuitySnarl about]] 23 [[spoiler:Chloe Sullivan]].



* ''Series/{{Glee}}''
** Noah "Puck" Puckerman states this as the sole reason for joining Acafellas and performing at the PTA meeting.
** Also, [[AsHimself Josh Groban's character]].
* ''Series/BostonLegal'', 40-ish Alan Shore competing with Denny for the 60-ish Shirley Schmidt. ([[{{Zmelik}} Neither wins.]])
* Carter on ''Series/{{ER}}'' wasn't really one, but was accused of it after dating a couple of older women.
* ''Series/LieToMe'': One episode revolves around a widow of a much younger man. After the team loudly derides the age gap, Torres says that she's been in a relationship with an older partner, and it was healthy and fulfilling. [[spoiler: This is an example of LikesOlderWomen because the older partner was a woman.]]
* ''Series/{{Friends}}'':
** [[spoiler: Frank Jr.]] just doesn't care if his wife is twice his age.
** This trope also pops up in the first season with Monica's boyfriend Young Ethan, although it's a relatively minor example. Ethan believes she's only twenty one, when she's actually twenty six - though he's actually seventeen pretending to be in his twenties.
** Rachel also has a fling with her much younger assistant Tag. Unusually for this trope, she actually ends the relationship when she turns 30 and sees how different their perspectives are.
** It's also revealed later in the series that Ross in high school made a pass at the librarian (who was in her ''seventies'' at the time). He seems to have grown out of it as his canon love interest Rachel is two years younger than him.



* ''Series/DoctorWho''
** The 2010 Christmas Special does it both ways. In the same relation. Abigail Pettigrew (age unknown, but adult, probably in her twenties) is held in stasis by (initially) Kazran Sardick's father, as collateral for a loan. While Kazran is a young boy, The Doctor briefly releases her. By the time Abigail is put back in stasis, Kazran promises they'll be back every Christmas Eve. They do so, and while Kazran is still younger than Abigail, they're mutually attracted to each other. Until one Christmas Eve, Kazran learns Abigail has only one day left to live, and he decides to not release her on following Christmas Eves. Eventually, Kazran becomes an old (and grumpy) man. And on a Christmas day, Abigail is the only person who can save the day. Old enough to now be her grandfather, Kazran releases Abigail. Of course, they still love each other.
** While the Doctor himself doesn't count, being over 900 years old, they do seem to like using this dynamic ever since they hired the twenty-something Creator/MattSmith. Almost every quasi-flirty relationship has been with a character whose actress is at least a little older than him. There was Queen Liz X (both she and her actress Creator/SophieOkonedo were 40), River Song (whose actress Creator/AlexKingston is some twenty years older than him), and Idris (who was played by an actress in her early 30s, but was dressed in a Victorian getup that made her look a little older). He gets in a MrsRobinson joke about River just to make the point.
* Several KoreanSeries play this trope up:
** ''Series/WhatsUpFox'': Nine years separate Byung Hee at 33 from her boyfriend Chul Soo, 24, whom she used to help babysit. He announces he's liked her since practically puberty.
** ''Series/FlowerBoyRamyunShop'': Chi Soo's a senior in high school; Eun Bi's a 25 year old student teacher.
** ''Series/OhMyLady'': The young KPop IdolSinger falls for the over-30 divorced mom.
* Hanto in ''Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger'', whose crushes have included Kegareshia (played by a then 27-year-old actress) and Miki from ''Series/JukenSentaiGekiranger'' (in her 40s and married with a daughter.) He is 16.
* The 8-year-old brother of a patient on one episode of ''Series/{{House}}'' gets a crush on Cameron.



* [[TheDitz Neil Sutherland]] of ''TheInbetweeners'' is this, losing his virginity to a woman at work, lusting after Will's mum, making a move on [[HotForTeacher Miss Timms]] and shagging AnythingThatMoves on holiday. The other lads have to physically restrain him from going off with another older woman on holidays. Will is this to a lesser extent as well.
* In one episode of ''Series/DocMartin'', a painter has the hots for Auntie Joan. Martin suspects an OedipusComplex, and it's later revealed that he's grieving for his dead mother ...

* Spike is this for Rarity in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. Admittedly, this example is somewhat muddied in that Spike, despite being a baby dragon, is actually not much younger than the adult main cast and is really only considered such due to dragon's centuries-long lifespan. He does consistently behave less mature than the rest of the cast, though.
