* SerialRomeo: he tends to fall in love (or, well, lust, which, in his words, "is basically the same thing when you get rid of all the Valentine cards and bullshit") ridiculously fast and ridiculously often. Of course, he's also game for dumping a woman immediately after having sex with her.

Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: As with Jez he often fakes this, but there are a few genuine instances of this trope. Notable examples include 'dumping' Suze after developing a crush on her (for the sake of Jez) and paying the bills on Johnson's stolen credit card (again for the sake of Jez.)

Added DiffLines:

* ShipTease: With Mark in the Series 3 episode 'Sistering'; after they spend time alone together Mark develops a crush on her but she is ObliviousToLove, though the end of the episode, where Mark 'dumps' her for the sake of Jez hints she ''might'' have had a soft spot for Mark after all.

* BiTheWay: While his exact sexual preferences are left [[AmbiguouslyBi ambiguous]] for most of the series, there are several hints to suggest he's bisexual. While most of his relationships are with women, he tells a woman that he's slept with more than men than her despite the fact that he "basically only sleep(s) with women", in one episode competes with Super Hans to get sexual favors from a young band member they take on, and at one point shows some admiration to a muscular monk dating Big Suze. It becomes less ambiguous in season 9 when he enters a relationship with a man and a woman.

* ClosetGeek: Hinted at throughout the series, but only really made clear once Mark has shades of this. In series 1, Jeremy finds a fantasy model painting magazine hidden in his cupboard (which, of course, he gets together mistakes for porn). When he meets Dobby, he's revealed to play a WoW-like game called [[BlandNameProduct Fantasy Warquest]]. Finally, when entering a geek shop with Dobby.Gerard, he monologues about not feeling as awkward "since he bought his first twenty sided die".



* GoldDigger: [[spoiler:Mark]] decides NOT to call off [[spoiler:his engagement to Sophie]] so he can get to live in her grandmother's cottage.



* TooDumbToFool: Jez could be said to be Too Lazy To Fool, since his time spent as a brainwashed cult member lasted ''days''.



* TheTeetotaler: [[spoiler:Johnson]] is a teetotal former alcoholic before he snaps at the end of series 7 during Big Suze's New Year's Eve party.



* BewareTheNiceOnes: She rather cheerfully suggests putting out cigarettes on a burglar.
