It follows numerous recent articles examining the experiences — and cultural significance — of older women, including from Australia's Jane Caro and journalists from the New York Times.

When American businesswoman Darlene Daggett sued her matchmaking services firm last month for setting her up on a string of horrific dates, the news ricocheted around the world. For her US0,000, Ms Daggett, 62, was introduced to, among others, a man who passed out from a heart ailment on their first date, and a convicted felon.
Another potential suitor told her he was waiting for his terminally ill wife to die before re-entering the dating pool.

It's what happened after one of Razer's dates, who had promised the columnist a night of mutually agreed upon "rough sex", sprung on her the news that his babysitting plans had fallen through.
Would Razer, 49, mind joining him and his nine-year-old daughter to see Barbie Live: The Musical? And yes, she did mind."I wasn't getting laid tonight," Razer would later write."My vagina had fused shut like Barbie's." These dating experiences sound made up, the sort of stories you'd expect to see in a Girls for the menopausal set — if such a series existed.
