** With Peter, alot of is due to his time as being the dork everyone picked on in high school and things didn't change until he became SPider-MAn (which included becoming physically fit to boot). Beyond that, his superheroics do play alot in his relationship troubles (especially with thelarg RoguesGallery he has.)

* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'': Ron Stoppable is considered pretty low on the food chain of the high school and does have some odd trais. Yet he seems insanely popular among girls - notably Yori and Kim (the latter of whom he later does date), along with Zita, and a crush by another cheerleader. Not to mention a handful of episodes where he gets involved with [[AlphaBitch Bonnie]].

* ''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 2 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/TwoAndAHalfMen'': Alan is often depicted as a pathetic loser yet he's dated a number of attractive women and was even married to a couple of them. It is made clear that his inability to hold a relationship stem from his insecurities, neediness and tendency to gravitate toward [[BrokenBird emotionally damaged women]].

* ''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.[[note]]At least according to Harry Dresden himself; it has been suggested that there might be [[UnreliableNarrator a little wishful thinking going on]].[[/note]] 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.

He makes it clear how hard what happened to Susan (his first girlfriend in the series) hit him and [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies spent a lot of time worrying about the potential danger for any hypothetical relationships after that]].

** 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.
