-->'''Friend:''' Now... hold on a sec! You weren't even ''dating''...
-->'''Bride in question:''' Nope.
-->'''Friend:''' ... And you haven't ''kissed''.
-->'''Bride in question:''' Nope, not once.
* With the revelation of ''{{Naruto}}'''s full time line, [[spoiler: Naruto and Hinata]] seems to be confirmed for being this trope. It's actually downplayed; While end of the movie cuts straight to their wedding in the credits, the two knew each other since childhood, and they still built up their relationship through dating (As revealed in a 2 page epilogue written by the author). In addition, a close look shows while they fell in love during winter, they marry during springtime.

* Mostly averted in [[BaldursGate Baldur's Gate II]]. The romance dialogues (which there are about 20 for each option) happen roughly every half hour or so in realtime. In game time this usually translates in more than three months.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' doesn't do this in gameplay; it takes a buildup 500 love points for two characters to marry and the chapters explicitly span months or years. Plotwise, however, Deirdre and Sigurd take LoveAtFirsSight to a new level. After she hears about him from Aideen and he saves her from a ruffian, they part ways for a few turns (i.e. a few days at best, depending on your interpretation of ingame time) and wind up saying things like "I tried so hard to forget you!" to each other as though they were lovers separated for months, rather than strangers who ran into each other for ten minutes.
