Tasmania older woman dating younger man
But according to Helen Razer, the reason these sorts of stories are appearing more frequently on our screens and in our books is profit.Executives have realised older women "are among the society's biggest spenders", she said.Prior to that, Amy Schumer, who wrote the skit, tried in vain for three years to find a woman willing to be in it.In Australia, 50-something women in the media such as Lisa Wilkinson and Tracey Spicer have gained major traction for talking about their age.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.
Just ask Amy Schumer, whose widely praised video skit, Last F***able Day, sent up the previously unspoken Hollywood "law" that women above the age of 40 are as desirable as drywall.

A 2013 report by the Reserve Bank of Australia found Australians aged 55 to 64 owned total assets that far eclipsed anyone younger than them.
In other words, they're cashed up and ready to pay for films and books that reflect their lives.
