The Free Dictionary says “a certain age” is a phrase “used to avoid saying that a person, usually a woman, is no longer young but is not yet old”.
But where is that certain place?
The Collins English Dictionary says: “of an unspecified age, but no longer young – usually said of women”.
Yes! I am a woman of a certain age and I am proud about it.
