* ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'' (second book of ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''): "Beloved" is pushing it, but once Kaladin develops feelings for Shallan, he concludes that she would be much happier with Adolin than with him.
* {{Literature/Oathbringer}} (third book of ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''): Similar to the Words of Radiance, except this time it's [[spoiler: Adolin trying to give up Shallan to Kaladin.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Although Jorah is in love with Daenerys, and jealous of every potential love interest of hers Daario Naharis in particular he knows that his feelings are unrequited. In spite of that he serves her, doesn't give much voice to his jealousy, and his greatest wish is to see her sitting on her throne and to be by her side. He implies this when he declines Jon's attempt to return Longclaw to him, saying that it rightfully belongs to him and his future children, indicating that he's come to terms with any relationship between Jon Snow and Daenerys, who do fall in love with one another, although he believes that Dany is infertile so this could also be an averted example.

Added DiffLines:

* ''FanFic/ToHellAndBackArrowverse'': Barry Allen is in love with Iris West, but has yet to confess his feelings to her. He was aware she would most likely already be in a relationship by the time he returned to Central City -- and she was, with Eddie Thawne. As a result, he encourages their relationship and resists any and all temptations of revealing how he really feels. [[spoiler:Even learning that he and Iris will one day be married doesn't sway him from this stance]].

* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'': Dale's wife Nancy has been having a very obvious affair with John Redcorn for most of the marriage, even bearing a son with him (though Dale is none the wiser). However, after Nancy and Dale rekindle their romance during a double date with the Hills, Nancy breaks off the affair with Redcorn. While Redcorn is not happy at first, Dale helps him reclaim the land that the government took from him and comes to see Dale as a true friend. Redcorn willingly steps aside when Nancy tries to get back with him, since he does not wish to cause the Gribbles any more grief. [[SubvertedTrope At least not until the later seasons when he tries to win Nancy back]].

* This is a recurring theme across both versions of ''{{Series/TheOffice}}''. Just about every version ends happily:
** Tim gracefully lets go of Dawn in the Christmas special, but gives her some words of encouragement. This finally compels Dawn to ditch her unsympathetic fiancé and passionately kiss Tim. Pam does something similar for Jim in the American version. He drops a promotion in New York just to take her out to dinner.
