It was a running joke throughout the episode, but was not treated derisively. While there was no indication that he had any intention of acting, Dean lightly flirted back.

* The film ''Summer of '42'' implies that these sorts of relationships weren't all that uncommon while the grown men were all off fighting WorldWarTwo. May or may not have inspired the similarly themed song "War is Hell (On The Homefront, Too)".

* ''Franchise/DragonBall''. Bulma's mother has flirted with Yamcha, Goku, and Vegeta, who brush her off. This even provoked Bulma's jealousy at one point!

It doesn't help that despite everyone else in the series aging semi-realistically, Bulma's mom has remained identical to how she looked when she was introduced. This means she hasn't changed appearances for a good 20+ years!

Older women with a taste of the younger kind (no, not ''[[TeacherStudentRomance that]]'' young - well, not usually...). Mrs. Robinson is usually much older than her lover, and her lover may or may not be willing. Even if the younger party is unwilling, [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale not all people are sympathetic to their plight]]. In some cases, the boy is just some UnluckyEverydude, feeling isolated and looking for love. In more comedic situations, a CasanovaWannabe or ChickMagnet may attract the attention of a much, ''[[GoldenGirls much]]'' older woman - which he desperately [[AbhorrentAdmirer does not want]]!

This is an EvolvingTrope because society is gradually becoming more accepting of the sex appeal of women aged 30+. Some now refer to older women who still have active sex lives as "the cougar" and what they are interested in as "cougar sex." This also led up to the coining of the term "MILF" - a subversion in which people who [[LikesOlderWomen like older women]] actively wish to be seduced by them. Sometimes they are the ones themselves who seduce older women. If every younger character around her finds themselves tempted to do this, she might be a StacysMom. There are also the "pumas" who are in their late 20s to mid 30s who sleep with younger men.

* In UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|OfComicBooks}} and UsefulNotes/{{the Bronze Age|OfComicBooks}} of Comics, ComicBook/BlackCanary was this to a younger ComicBook/GreenArrow. A later story [[RetCon retconned]] things so that she was actually the daughter of the original Black Canary, with her mother's memories magically implanted into her, so as to explain why a superheroine who should have been in her 60s didn't look a day over 30. She also served in this role, after Green Arrow's death, to a younger hero - The Ray.

* EvolvingTrope: the MILF [[note]] Mother I'd Like To Fuck[[/note]] phenomenon started a subversion of the initial trope. The ''AmericanPie'' movies introduced the word MILF to mainstream culture when (the initially highschool graduate) Paul Finch seduced his friend Stifler's mom. While she doesn't pursue her relationship with Paul, she is rather promiscuous towards others. In ''American Pie 3: American Wedding'', Steve Stifler accidentally slept in the dark with his friend Jim's grandmother (though he surprised her, she seemed to have enjoyed the experience). * In the film version of ''AnAmericanInParis'', Nina Foch takes an interest in Creator/GeneKelly's ... ''painting''. The actors' age difference was twelve years.

Misuse of ironic
* In one episode of ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'', Uncle Phil's old friend seduces Will under the guise of interviewing him for her book. What makes things worse is that he had just gotten back from going on a date with her daughter. Also her name was ironically Miss Robinson.
