:: Which makes that a ''hell'' of a time to stop and have a relationship talk. But one which makes him duly compliant in promising to love her 'til the end of time -- and, in due course, praying for that very same end of time to be released from his promise.

* One Creator/AgathatChristie novel has a serial womanizer artist murdered, with his wife having been overheard to say that "he's too cruel". She was jailed for his murder despite claiming her innocence, and it turns out [[spoiler: in spite of his numerous affairs with his latest model, he always returned to his wife and never considered abandoning her. The latest girl was madly in love with him, and didn't take it well when she found she was just a toy to him (the "too cruel" referred to the man's imminent behavior towards the girl, not his wife). So she killed him and framed his wife... but has found her life dreary and boring ever since.]]

* In ''{{Cheers}}'', Diane mulls over this subject often, regarding Sam's feelings towards her.
* In ''{{Spaced}}'' Twist asks Brian that she wants him to see her as a whole. When he assures her he does, she stresses "A ''whole'' Brian, with a ''w''."
* In the ''MyNameIsEarl'' {{Flashback}} episode "Guess Who's Coming Out of Joy," Joy has been cheating on Earl with Darnell. She suggests getting down in the freezer at the Crab Shack, which does not appeal to Darnell. He then asks her, "Why's it always gotta be just sex with us? I want to go to the movies, like a normal couple!" The two proceed to argue, and (temporarily) end their relationship.
* In ''GossipGirl'', Blair wonders if the only reason Chuck has been pursuing her so tenaciously is because he can't stand losing. He confirms that it was all just a game to him. He's lying through his teeth.

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}:'' Casca seems to imply this after she and Guts [[spoiler: made love]] when he returned to aid the Hawks one year after he had left. He told her his plans of leaving again after their leader Griffith was rescued, which left Casca thinking of Guts as a selfish bastard who was ready to leave and forget about her in a pin drop. Then [[spoiler: he told her to come with him.]] Cue in dumbfounded expression on Casca's part.
** This trope was then deconstructed and played for horror during the Eclipse when [[spoiler: Casca is being horrifically raped by Griffith, and it is done so right in front of Guts. While Griffith, now as his demon alter ego Femto, [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty is molesting and raping her]] in nearly ''every way possible'', he is not actually looking at Casca at all - rather, [[KubrickStare he's staring at Guts THE ENTIRE TIME]], as this horrible act was aimed at hurting Guts the most. After he's finished with Casca, he merely lets her drop to the ground as [[BreakTheCutie an exhausted and defeated woman]].]]

* It's ''[[{{HoYay/StarWarsExpandedUniverse}} probably]]'' completely platonic [[PotHole Or at least as platonic as any two characters based on Holmes and Watson can be]], but something very similar to this trope happens in the ''Literature/HandOfThrawn'' duology. Supreme Commander Pellaeon, hearing the rumors of his mentor and leader Grand Admiral Thrawn coming BackFromTheDead, talks to a subordinate, trying to work out why Thrawn wouldn't have contacted him. He considers that maybe Thrawn just wants him where he is, out of the way.
