** With ''all'' of that said, there's [[SexySecretary Miss Moneypenny]], with whom Bond constantly has UnresolvedSexualTension but adopts a strict SleepsWithEveryoneButYou policy[[note]]However, he is definitely ''not'' of the CantActPervertedTowardALoveInterest persuasion[[/note]], likely because it would be [[OfficeRomance mixing business with pleasure a bit too close to home]].

* Solid Snake had a different potential love interest in the earlier ''VideoGame/MetalGear'' games which culminated with Meryl in ''[=MGS1=]'' (the previous ones being Diane in ''[=MG1=]'' and Holly in ''[=MG2=]''). This was subverted in subsequent installments , with Snake having no real love interest in ''[=MGS2=]'' (going as far as to dismiss Olga as a potential love interest by claiming that he's "tired of tomboys") and in ''[=MGS4=]'' he loses Meryl to Akiba of all people ([[DieForOurShip which upset quite a few Snake/Meryl fans]]). He still got quite a few ladies after him in the non-canon games, if you count Chris Jenner, Teliko Friedman, and Venus. Out of all these girls, the only ones whose affections are truly reciprocated are Meryl, Chris and (depending on [[ImpliedLoveInterest how you interpret]] [[SergeantRock their]] [[ActionGirl relationship]]) Teliko - Diane won't admit she admires Snake, Venus flirts with Snake but Snake turns her down, and while Snake agrees to go out with Holly he loses interest in her pretty much immediately afterwards and dumps her.

** Bond's murdered wife [[ILetGwenStacyDie Teresa di Vicenzo]] also gets brought up every now and then, but always indirectly (possibly to hide the ContinuitySnarl of Creator/PierceBrosnan's Bond being called upon to mourn a woman George Lazenby's Bond married almost thirty years earlier), though this was the unspoken reason Creator/SeanConnery's Bond was so pissed at Blofeld in the immediate sequel, ''Film/DiamondsAreForever''.

** So far, just about every girl that Daniel Craig's Bond has had sex with has died before the closing credits. The only two Daniel Craig-era Bond girls to survive so far are Camille Montes (who Bond doesn't even get in bed with) in "Film/QuantumOfSolace" and the random woman he is seen with at the beginning of ''Film/{{Skyfall}}''.

** By contrast, Timothy Dalton is by far the safest Bond to bed down with; only one woman dies across his two films, and she's his friend's love interest (actually wife), not his. All four of the women Dalton's James sleeps with live to be ignored in the sequels.[[note]]Short tenure aside, Dalton's Bond was supposedly the least promiscuous because of the contemporary AIDS panic.[[/note]]

* In the ''{{Sällskapsresan}}'' series by Swedish director/actor Lasse Åberg, the protagonist - the {{Adorkable}} CoolLoser Stig-Helmer Olsson - will always hook up with one girl per movie. No matter how well they seem to fit together, the start of the next movie will mention that they broke up or divorced or parted in some other way, to make space for the next girl.

(Until the very end, where abject humiliation succeeds in winning the two they least wanted to meet.)

* The Literature/{{Gor}} novels (when Tarl isn't pining for Talena or Vella) tend to have a Slave Girl Of The Book, who Tarl teaches to love her slavery. By the next book she's either in his slave harem and (almost) never mentioned again or sold off to someone who is her "ideal master."
* Deconstructed in ''Literature/TalesOfAnMazingGirl'' Story X of the week, in which Mazing Girl rapidly falls in love and loses him. [[spoiler: The villain gave her a drug to make her fall in love with him, then killed him for the sole purpose of making it personal.]]

* In the first season of ''Series/BeverlyHills90210'', many episodes focused on Brandon's girl of the week. Late in the season, Brenda actually commented on it. (See: LampshadeHanging) Sometimes this would flirt with "VerySpecialEpisode" territory, since most of the girls Brandon hooked up with had some kind of "issue" connected to them, eg., the girl with the baby, the black girl, the racist girl--never let it be said Brandon wasn't an equal opportunity dater.

** This was such a common event that characters who keep getting the girl of the week in a TV series are sometimes referred to as 'Kirk' or 'a Kirk', either as criticism or compliment, often by [[HollywoodNerd geeky]] characters. See various episodes of Stargate Atlantis as an example, with Rodney [=McKay=] calling John Shepherd 'Kirk' after he has met and conquered the girl - but then he's jealous! The epitome of this was when Shephard tried to hit on Rodney's married sister in the episode '[=McKay=] and Mrs Miller' (S3 E08).

* A very commonly used trope in TheSixties spy series ''Series/TheManFromUNCLE'' (befitting the series's status as a ''Film/JamesBond'' knockoff). Usually the girl wound up in the arms of suave operator [[HandsomeLech Napoleon Solo]], but the occasional episode would give her to [[EstrogenBrigade distaff fan favorite]] Illya Kuryakin.

* ''{{Series/Highlander}}'' loved this after the first season. Mac did have Amanda around on and off, but he had a lot of girls of the week too. The series even had a parody song on one of its commercially released outtake reels that lampshaded it. "He'll chop a head, then land in bed with this week's guest star..." It used to make fans complain because Richie and Joe so rarely had girlfriends.
* ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'' had the genderflip of this, with most of the girls having frequent *guys* of the week.
* ''{{Series/Merlin|2008}}'' had a milder form of this in the earlier seasons, with several princesses of the week that came at Uther's behest to try and get Arthur married to someone the king approved of. It didn't work.

* ''Series/{{Friends}}'' distinguished between the type of relationship the different characters have. Both Joey and Phoebe have numerous relationships which last barely an episode. Ross and Monica preferred long-term relationships that lasted for at least a few episodes (Julie, Elizabeth, Mona/Richard and Pete). Rachel switches between Guy Of The Week and long term interests. Chandler interestingly ''tried'' to pick up Girl Of The Week one night stands but struggled and was actually happier in his longer relationships. (Janice and Kathy).
