** Pyrrha Nikos- a star athlete and SignificantGreenEyedRedhead- is in love with Jaune Arc because [[spoiler:(never having trained to be a Hunter)]] he doesn't idolize her like the other students do. Jaune himself is in love with Weiss, and ignores Pyrrha romantically despite the anvil-sized hints she keeps dropping.
-->'''Pyrrha:''' ''[comforting Jaune after Weiss rejects him]'' Well, I believe the saying goes that...there are plenty of fish in the sea.
-->'''Jaune:''' ''[snorts]'' Easy for ''you'' to say. You've probably got guys clambering over you just to ask you out! If you don't get a date to the dance, [[BrickJoke I'll wear a dress]]. [[note]]A promise he keeps without the slightest bit of embarrassment.[[/note]]

-->'''Pyrrha:''' ''[comforting Jaune after Weiss rejects him]'' Well, I believe have been blessed with amazing talents and opportunities. I am constantly surrounded by love and praise... but when you're put on a pedestal like that for so long, you become separated from the saying goes that...people who put you there are plenty of fish in the sea.

* [[http://oglaf.com/unattainable/ Pretty much the whole joke ]] of this 'Oglaf' strip. As part of a running gag with a wishing doll that subverts wishes, the woman in this comic finds herself unable to sleep with anyone, despite immense effort on her part.

* Lady Hish Tulla, from the ''Literature/KharkanasTrilogy'', is subjected to this both at court in general thus preferring to remain at home at Tulla Hold unless summoned to court and from men she's ''actually been together with before already'', namely Anomander Rake and Silchas Ruin. Although by the beginning of the story she's so used to it she fears any change in that dynamic.

* This actually affects the entire spectrum. While most people fantasize about the TheBeautifulElite, they're usually most attracted to people in their own league, and [[ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe usually meet attention from these people with suspicion]]. The exception is, of course, the UglyGuyHotWife scenario [[SpearCounterpart with either gender]].

* Played straight in ''Film/TheLoveOfSiam''. Ying is an attractive girl. However, no one in the movie ever complements or even asked her out. Ying's friends who are arguably less attractive than her even pokes fun of her for being single.

* Happens to Iori Yoshizuki from ''{{Is}}'', who's so pretty and popular that pretty much nobody approaches her at school. Although there is also the fact that [[spoiler: she's had a crush on Ichitaka for as long as he's had one on her]].
