* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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''.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'', Shinji liked both Asuka and Rei, but he didn't say anything because he wasn't sure about his feelings or theirs... [[spoiler:until Asuka kissed him.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The titular heroine of ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' suffers from a combo of this and an UnrequitedLoveSwitcheroo with her crime fighting partner, Chat Noir. What makes it ''really'' frustrating is that their identities are only covered by a DominoMask for each of them- it kinda makes you want to go inside the TV and tell them yourself.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'':
** Rei had feelings for Shinji but she couldn't spit them out because she was frightened of being rejected since she was Shinji's mother's clon, and he was dating someone else, anyway.
** Asuka couldn't initially confess that she liked Shinji because she was frightened of opening herself up and getting hurt.
** Shinji fell for Asuka as soon as he met her, but he didn't confess for a while because he didn't think that she would accept him.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'':''Series/DoctorWho''
** See also "TheILoveYouStigma", as the series does not allow the Doctor to utter the words "I love you" to anyone on screen, leading to scenarios such as...


Added DiffLines:

** In "Face the Raven", the Doctor appears to be on the verge of telling Clara about his feelings for her [[spoiler: as she prepares to meet her death]], but she cuts him off with a tender hug instead, telling him she knows what he's about to say.
