* For all her StalkerWithACrush tendencies, ''Manga/SukiXSuki'' protagonist Touka is prepared to go this route when it looks like a girl is prepared to openly confess her feelings to Ryoutarou with a gift of cookies when Touka herself can only do so while using her invisibility. Then it turns out the girl wanted Ryoutarou to give her cookies to his buddy Utsumi on her behalf.

** At least he gets some redemption in "At World's End." (Our destinies were intertwined, Elizabeth...but never joined.")[[spoiler: This is his rejection to Elizabeth's offer to join them in their escape from the Flying Dutchman, made the more poignant and heartbreaking when she sees him killed by Bootstrap Bill moments later. This was a man she contemplated marrying, afterall.]]

* In ''The Book of Masters'' (2009), Yangul doesn't arrive at this trope right away: at first he attempts to MurderTheHypotenuse, stopping when his beloved Katya pleads with him, then he considers ScarpiaUltimatum (twice), and when Katya actually agrees to it, he states that she doesn't love him and orders her and her intended to leave before he might change his mind again. [[spoiler:[[DeathOfTheHypotenuse He never gets a chance to.]]]]

** ''Shepard'' actually attempts this with Tali in the continuation of their relationship in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''. There's no romantic rival or anything, but Shepard accepts that Tali must leave him (at least until the war is over) to stay on the planet that they just won for her people, as said planet has an almost religious significance in her culture, and she's wanted to live there all her life. Tali has other plans.
--> '''Shepard''': You going to be okay? I know working with the geth will be difficult-
-->'''Tali''': I'm not staying. I'm coming with you.
-->''[pause]''
-->'''Shepard''': I wasn't going to ask...
-->'''Tali''': Why not?
-->'''Shepard''': Because I respect you, dammit! You think I don't want you to come with me?
-->'''Tali''': So ask me.
-->'''Shepard''': Tali...
-->'''Tali''': I don't know how much time we have left. I don't know if we can beat the Reapers. But whatever happens, I want to be with you.
-->'''Shepard:''' ''[smirks]'' I bet you say that to every guy who gets you a homeworld.
-->'''Tali''': ''[looks directly at him]'' Only the cute ones.
-->'''Shepard:''' You know I'd understand if you needed to stay?
-->'''Tali:''' I know.
-->''[...]''
-->'''Tali:''' ''[while watching the sunset]'' It is beautiful though. Isn't it?
-->'''Shepard:''' ''[looking directly at '''Tali''']'' Yeah... it is.

* UpToEleven with Mutsumi in ''Manga/LoveHina'' [[spoiler: she's been in love with Keitaro ever since she was a toddler, but she purposefully threw a game of Rock–paper–scissors when she competed with Naru to see who would form a ChildhoodMarriagePromise with him. She continued to ship the two of them when they met again 15 years later, even though Naru -and to a lesser extent, Keitaro- don't even remember the promise. Naru didn't even ''like'' Keitaro for most of the series and it would have been easy for her to win Keitaro's affection, but in her mind their happiness was more important.]]

* Lennier in ''Series/BabylonFive'' is a curious example. He tries to be this for most of the show. The time he fails, he is so ashamed that he runs off to become TheAtoner.

* Beautifully subverted in the ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' series by MercedesLackey. Dirk spends about half his time pining over Talia and the other half trying to get her together with his best friend Kris, and ends up thoroughly exasperating both Talia ''and'' Kris - who happen to love each other dearly but are quite positive they're BetterAsFriends, thank you very much. Not to mention that Talia is madly in love with Dirk and Kris really would just like to see his two dearest friends happy, preferably with each other. Shame about [[BigBad Ancar]], really.
