* In ''Literature/WolfHall'', Mary Boleyn finds Thomas Cromwell after Henry and Anne hold an unofficial marriage ceremony in Calais. She tries to kiss him, saying that they've earned their own recreation after all the work it took to get Henry and Anne together. Cromwell is initially hesitant, since Mary has been looking for just about any husband to get away from her family, but decides to anyway. Then a ''third'' figure appears in the dark courtyard and he instantly has a knife to the man's throat. (It turns out to be William Stafford, arriving late enough that Mary thought she was stood up. They end up getting married--and tossed out of court--anyhow.)

After initially hesitating he leans in--then immediately pulls a knife on a third person, who turns out to be Mary's ''actual'' date, William Stafford, not having stood her up after all.

** Possibly Aang and Katara in "The Cave of Two Lovers". However, the lights go out as they're moving in, and to this day, it's a mystery if there was an Almost Kiss or a FirstKiss. [[WordOfGod The producers say]] [[spoiler:that is was a FirstKiss]].
** And another, ''far'' less ambiguous one when they dance together in the second episode of the third series, ending with both of them [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything panting and sweating heavily]].
** Sokka and Suki also share an Almost Kiss-moment on a moonlit night, which is exactly why Sokka can't go through with it (his last girlfriend died and became the Moon Spirit). He makes up for by the end of the episode with two {{Shut Up Kiss}}es.

* Also seen in ''AshesToAshes'' many ''many'' times between Gene Hunt and Alex Drake, with the same resolution. Arguably, one party was unconscious for three of these.

* Obnoxiously overused in the Creator/{{CBS}} ''Series/BeautyAndTheBeast'' television show from the late '80s. In practically every episode Vincent and Catherine start to engage in a kiss, but at the last moment they always wince and just hug each other instead. After a while, it didn't feel like "the characters always come to the realization that their love is not possible," so much as [[ExecutiveMeddling "the producers were afraid of outcries of bestiality."]] When he finally did kiss her, [[spoiler: ''it was after she was dead'']]. Arrgghhh!
