** Rajesh gets laid more than once despite an inability to even ''talk'' to women, though his family being wealthy has been the reason for at least one of those relationships.

** Rajesh gets laid more than once despite an inability to even ''talk'' to women, though his family being wealthy has been the reason for at least one of those relationships. He also gains the ability to talk to women when he's been drinking, which means he scores at parties fairly often.

* ''Webcomic/ManlyGuysDoingManlyThings'' pokes fun at this trope when Jonesy meets [[ComicBook/SinCity Marv]], pointing out that a ''lot'' of women would probably be interested in him if he wasn't [[TheEeyore so down on himself]].

* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'': Steve Smith much like his counterparts from ''Family Guy''. Despite constantly being described as a perpetually awkward virgin loser, Steve has had multiple hookups and opportunities to lose his virginity to very attractive girls, much more than most 14 year old boys in real life could ever hope to. For the record, according to the ''American Dad'' [[TheWikiRule wiki]], he has had ''17'' different love interests. His equally awkward best friend Snot qualifies as well.

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'': Harry Dresden. The man's friends, co-workers, and magical spirit servants mock his lackluster love life. His love life actually isn't all that great - the books, 11 so far, each take place about a year or so apart, so he's had two girlfriends in about 11 years - but it's not all ''that'' horrible. Over the course of the series he has been in two committed relationships so far ([[spoiler:one was TheMole, but it wasn't her fault and they're still friends]]) with very attractive women, plus one paper-thin {{Will They Or Wont They}}, one at least somewhat attractive lover in his backstory, and probably dozens of women who have thrown themselves at him only for him to turn them down. His love life isn't that great only because Harry has a DarkAndTroubledPast and a tendency to place HonorBeforeReason, not because he's really all that ugly or socially inept. In the books he's tall, dark, mysterious, probably relatively good-looking when he bothers to clean himself up, and has a sharp wit. In the TV series he was played by [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0085860/ this guy]]. There's ''no way'' he couldn't get a date if he actually wanted to. Though, it's less that he's mocked for being ''unable'' to get a date so much as being ''unwilling'' to.

* ''Film/IndecentProposal''. The viewer is expected to believe that handsome and wealthy John Gage, outright described by another character as "a major poon-hound", needs to pay a thoroughly uninterested woman $1 million to sleep with him, not to mention practically stalk this woman after their one night stand.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheCritic'': Jay Sherman, a balding, short, fat, apparently annoying and once divorced movie critic would probably do a lot worse in the real world. Although he still does manage to date a psycho fan and his near-mummified makeup artist, Jay doesn't seem to have problems scoring with beautiful women.

Although he still does manage to date a psycho fan and his near-mummified makeup artist, Jay doesn't seem to have problems scoring with beautiful women. The two we see him dating had a catch; one was just buttering him up for a good review of her film, the other genuinely liked him, but it turns out she has a thing for pathetic men. Naturally, this aspect of Jay's character is gradually phased out after he starts a relationship with Alice.

* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'': Ted Mosby's love life is generally unsatisfactory to him, not because he can't get dates but because he's looking for true love. He is often teased by his friends for falling too quickly for women and trying to turn each new date into a potential wife. Still he has several hot women per season (minus season II when he's in a committed relationship with Robin). And apparently the characters in this show all think it's mind-boggling for someone to go more than a few months without getting laid.
* ''Series/{{iCarly}}'': Freddie averts this, in both ways. He is never considered to be completely inept, but neither is he constantly dating insanely hot girls. 1 date was a FemmeFatale who was using him to break up their webshow, a second was with a twin he only asked out to prove that it was a trick being played by the original twin, he went to a dance with a wizard that ended poorly, and finally a date with a girl he wasn't interested in due to being forced into a triple date. The only time he's been with a girl he ''really'' likes, it's Carly, but he had been recently hit by a truck and was stuck in bed and then hobbling around on crutches. He also ended their brief relationship because he was worried Carly only liked him because he saved her from the truck.

* Film/{{Clerks}}'' and ''Film/{{ClerksII}}'': Dante. The same CoolLoser having to choose between [[{{UglyGuyHotWife}} two different, noticeably attractive women]] in the first movie and then a ''second'' pair of attractive women in the sequel. Notice {{Lampshade Hanging}} by both Randal and Creator/KevinSmith himself in the credits.
