* Of the "acquaintance" variety on ''Series/StrongMedicine''. A party is held to celebrate the promotion of one of the hospital's surgeons. Afterwards, he encounters one of his colleagues, Dr. Lu Delgado, in the parking lot and offers her a ride. She accepts. . .and the next scene is of her wandering into the ER, declaring that she's been raped. We never see what happened but her story is that after driving her home, he walked her to her apartment, made advances to her, and didn't listen when she told him "No".

* Subverted on ''Series/{{Sisters}}'' when Cat (daughter of second-oldest sister Teddy) meets a classmate in his dormitory for a ''study'' date rather than the typical romantic scenario. They start making out, but she nixes it because she doesn't feel ready to sleep with him yet. He's not pleased, but she doesn't realize just how angry he is until she goes for her run that evening. . . and he shows up at the track and assaults her.
** During her attacker's trial, her aunt Georgie (the middle sister) admits to having been date-raped herself while in high school.

* Not a "date" in the usual sense, but this happens to [[spoiler:Jensen]] in ''Pillars of Creation'', the seventh book in the ''Literature/SwordOfTruth'' series. Her inner monologue makes it clear she isn't at all comfortable with what her suitor is doing, but she's unable to bring herself to stop him.

Her inner monologue makes it clear she isn't at all comfortable with what her suitor is doing, but she's unable to bring herself to stop him. Not that she likely could have, as he's far stronger than her.



* ''Series/QuantumLeap'': The plot of "Raped" -- a young couple going out on a dinner date, which ends with the young man -- the "golden boy" of a small town; he is about to cash in on a lucrative college football scholarship -- raping his date in the back seat of a car. Sam leaps into the body of the rape victim and has to testify (eventually, he is -- with Al's help in finding the rape victim -- able to recount the events exactly as they happened). The boy is acquitted, but in the end, he doesn't get away with his actions at all, thanks to Sam.

The epilogue notes that the prosecutor was a victim of this herself, and thus motivated to take up her career, having far more success in future cases.



* ''Series/VeronicaMars'': Part of the backstory told in flashbacks. Veronica is roofied during a high school party end of her sophomore year and wakes up partially unclothed the next morning. She tries to report what happens and Sheriff Lamb calls her a slut and kicks her out of the station. Which explains why she hates him so much. [[spoiler: At the end of season 1 she finds out she was drugged when Madison gave her a trip to the dentist. Duncan rescued her at first getting her to a safe room. Then he was drugged and put in the same room. Duncan in his state thought she had consented. Logan was the one that brought the drugs to the party. Then at the end of the 2nd seasons she find out that mass murderer Beaver had raped her that night. In season 3 she can't understand why Logan goes as far as he does to protect her as she investigates a serial rapist, who targets her but is scared off by Logan]]

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10487650/2/Advanced-Theory-Dualism Advanced Theory]]'', Sora makes a fake confession to Riku to get back at him for being a jerk to Sora's friends. Which backfires [[GoneHorriblyRight because Riku accepts the confession and admits to having feelings for Sora.]] In Riku's excitement, he unintentionally forces Sora to have sex with him because Sora felt too guilty to refuse him. While Sora never [[DateRape calls it rape]], he admits to feeling tainted by the experience. To Riku's credit, he picks up on this and makes sure to check for Sora's consent.

* On her in-character facebook, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick finally got a date with ToddInTheShadows. Most people would feel bad if their crush drank the night away and ignored them (which he did), but she was just excited about his judgment being blurred.

This trope (which is sadly common in real life, reflected in fiction), is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. A woman, or more rarely a man, is out on a date with a person who seems nice and normal... until they force themselves on the victim, either [[ButLiquorIsQuicker by drugs]] or by violence. Though this is a [[IncrediblyLamePun dated]] definition: the proper term now is ''acquaintance rape,'' owing to the fact that there doesn't even have to be a date (or even a dating relationship) for it to happen - acquaintance rapes have happened as BrotherSisterIncest, between co-workers and roommates and similar, by delivery people or hired employees, by [[DepravedDentist medical]] [[DrJerk professionals]] while the victim was under anesthesia and in nontraditional relationship settings (e.g. a member of the GroupieBrigade of a band's singer is at a party and gets roofied and raped by the bassist; or a woman is meeting with a male sex worker and instead of having consensual sex with her, he rapes her) among others.
