May or may not overlap with StalkerWithACrush, though that one usually isn't PlayedForLaughs. The OldMaid, GrandeDame, BrawnHilda and LadyDrunk are likely candidates to act out this trope. It's not unheard of for there to be [[UnwantedHarem more than one Abhorrent Admirer for the same character,]] either. Compare ExtravertedNerd, HollywoodNerd, BeastAndBeauty. Contrast UglyGuyHotWife. For versions where only the personality is a problem, see NoGuyWantsToBeChased, RomanticRunnerUp and CasanovaWannabe (the [[DistaffCounterpart Spear Counterpart]]). KavorkaMan is an inversion...and overwhelmingly male, which obviously has UnfortunateImplications out the wazoo.

* In the ''Series/TalesFromTheCrypt'' episode, "Til Death", a man uses a LovePotion on a wealthy widow, marries her and then murders her to get her fortune. She ends up coming back as a decaying [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombie]] who's still in love with him. The episode, "None but the Lonely Heart" has an extremely similar premise and ending.

* ''Series/{{Friends}}''
** Chandler is repeatedly plagued by the unwanted advances of Janice who isn't unattractive to look at, it's her overbearing personality plus loud, nasal voice and annoying honking laugh that make her abhorrent. She's not '''entirely''' unwanted, however, as Chandler does (eventually) develop feelings for her; the two are actually in a seemingly stable relationship for a few episodes before she goes back to her husband.

* The white trash Kanker Sisters in ''[[WesternAnimation/EdEddnEddy Ed, Edd n Eddy]]''. Normally, each Kanker has her preferred Ed - May has Ed, Marie has Edd, and Lee has Eddy - but [[UnwantedHarem not only will all three of them dogpile and fight over one Ed if the other two aren't around]], they also tend to fawn over other guys they consider attractive enough, e.g. Rolf in his full Urban Rangers uniform in "Ed Overboard". Regardless, ''all'' the kids in the cul-de-sac fear the Kankers, to the point that all of them will run away if they happen to show up as the Kankers are violently unpredictable, as shown in "Run for Your Ed" where they embark on an absolute rampage of total destruction because [[FelonyMisdemeanor their family heirloom has apparently been stolen]]. So, what do they do when they inevitably catch up with the target of their affections? [[TheGlomp Smother him in hugs & kisses]] and [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale pretty much sexually harass him]] - one of the most hysterical examples has got to be "Key to My Ed" [[spoiler:at the end of which they restrain the Eds by their feet to ''perform forced footsies'']]. They also want to pawn off all their housework onto their long-suffering "boyfriends". Even when they were introduced in "Nagged to Ed", the second episode of the series, it was clear they had some StalkerWithACrush tendencies as they not only knew Edd's preferred moniker before he could introduce himself but even had drawings of themselves being with each of the Eds on their wall[[note]]In particular, Lee drew herself marrying Eddy, which [[DudeNotFunny he didn't find amusing]][[/note]], done well in advance of the girls even meeting the Eds for the first time.

Added DiffLines:

** May seems to be rather sincere, at least compared to her sisters, about her crush on Ed. The most notable example of her true feelings is probably ''Hanky Panky Hullabaloo'', in which she was the only one of the three who bothered to acknowledge Valentine's Day, let alone make her crush a card which she then tried to deliver to him while asking, not telling, him to be her Valentine. Ed, being Ed, is [[AllergicToLove fearful of all things affectionate]] and so let her down as gently as a raging freight train, leaving her to [[TearJerker bawl her eyes out in a utility closet]]. Of course, that doesn't vindicate her of the more depraved things she does with her sisters to torment the Eds, but it seems [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold she might actually like him after all]]. Ed's so disgusting, though, that this no doubt prompts WhatDoesSheSeeInHim from people.

** In the short "Johnny of the Deep" Johnny Test is transformed into a shark and is approached by a top heavy female shark with long eyelashes, red hair, green eyes and big red lips who speaks with a slight southern accent. She called him a flaming haired hunk of shark and said "I think you're cute as all get out!" She ran a fin through his hair and asked, "How 'bout a little kiss sugar?" Moving in to hold him and blowing kisses while puckering her lips, the horrified Johnny swam away. She pursued smacking her lips during the chase scene. Later, a ring dubbed Suzanite that Bling-Bling Boy had that could make any female fall for him (but it was obviously intended for Susan) worked its magic on the shark thanks to Johnny and Dukey. She gazed at Eugene with hearts in her eyes. The smitten shark declared, "Ah'm in love," and wanted "Just a little kiss!" This was despite the fact that Bling-Bling Boy was not transformed into a shark like Johnny and was still a human, but it was all due to the power of the ring. The shark lady swam after Eugene blowing kisses in the air once again. She called out to him a few times asking for her "Sugar? SUGAR?"
