* Every time Haru from ''Manga/{{Ojojojo}}'' makes an effort to say something genuinely nice or sincere to Kawayanagi, she reflexively twists her words into something condescending. She gets a little better about it over time.

* An interesting example: It takes a borderline HeroicBSOD (or maybe VillainousBreakdown is better considering [[NeutralEvil the character]]) for Viconia in ''BaldursGate 2'' to admit that she loves the protagonist. She has no problem sleeping with him, but confessing love is trickier.

* Used absolutely heartbreakingly in ''VideoGame/{{Prey}}''. Tommy asks himself in the mirror why he won't just tell Jem he loves her. He eventually does [[spoiler:after having had to kill her.]]

* ''Series/MurdochMysteries'': It's pretty clear to anyone that Murdoch likes Dr. Ogden, but he cannot get himself to say it. When he tries to propose to her late in "The Murdoch Sting", he still has this problem [[Liquid Courage (despite having had a fortifying drink of Brackenreid's scotch beforehand)]]; he stops himself and starts again when he tries to ask the question before [[InterruptedDeclarationOfLove Julia stops him and flees into her house]].

* In ''Literature/PrideAndPrejudice'', the first thing Darcy says about Elizabeth is that she's not pretty enough to dance with (which she overhears). When she walks to Netherfield to visit her ill sister, his opinion of her starts to change, but he doesn't do anything beyond LongingLooks until he tries to propose to her many months later, fully expecting that she was ''hoping'' for it. He did have a good reason for keeping his feelings quiet; as he [[SarcasmMode helpfully explains]], he was trying to reason himself out of wanting to connect himself with her inferior family. How odd, then, that she should refuse him! Of course, after Elizabeth's refusal, Darcy takes stock of himself based on her complaints about him and starts to shape up, becoming a much more polite and empathetic person. This causes Elizabeth to begin loving ''him'', but feels incredibly awkward about it given how violently she refused him, and also feels guilty because half of the jerkish acts she accused him of weren't even true. So she says nothing to him about it, partly due to the awkward and partly because she feels like he couldn't possibly love her back after the crap she gave him. ''Then'' [[spoiler: Lydia elopes with Wickham, exposing the Bennet family to potential, devastating shame which would make Darcy's marrying Elizabeth social suicide on his part]], and complicates it all even ''further.''

* Justified in ''Literature/TheTrialsOfApollo'' - while Apollo has clearly figured out some plot important information, he forgets it at the worst possible moment due to him being BroughtBackDownToNormal. [[LampshadeHanging Of course, Apollo gets frustrated at how often this happens]].

* In ''Terminator: Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'', if Riley talked to John, John talked to Sarah, Derek talked to either of them, Sarah told people where she was going OR they just had a nice, normal family dinner once in a while, they would figure out in about 5 seconds that Jesse was holding Riley hostage, that she had pretended to be a school official to get info on John, was lying to Derek and is not on their side. Instead they remain oblivious and one of them gets killed.

* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'': Shinji didn't dare spit his feelings out because he thought Asuka hated him. On the other hand, Asuka thought that ''he'' wasn't interested in her and he hated ''her''.
