Something similar to this exists in real life; known as hetero/homoflexible, it refers to when someone is usually attracted to only one gender… but has found they have a small group--or even a single person who is the exception. There is at least one psychology paper that claims it is possible for everyone with sufficient level of romantic attraction to a specific person, but it mostly examines the issue as a thought experiment.

This is also often an implicit assumption in SlashFic that tries to pair characters that are generally portrayed as heterosexual (or homosexual--and/or [[IncestIsRelative related]]). This is especially likely if the characters are already HeterosexualLifePartners, {{Buddy Cop|Show}}s, an OddCouple, or are simply shown attracted to ''one'' character without any other attractions to reference. When it's made explicit, it's usually referred by "We're Not Gay We Just Love Each Other" (WNGWJLEO) in {{ficdom}}, where it's often criticized for its perceived homophobia (as such it's now an almost thoroughly DiscreditedTrope in SlashFic).

* Mutsuki of ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' initially was depicted as a trans man with no reaction or interest in anything sexual (owing to his traumatic past which includes sexual abuse) and thinks sexual attention from men is disgusting. But he has feelings for Sasaki/Kaneki another man and decides he must be "embarrassingly female" to have these feelings but finds them hard to ignore especially as he [[GreenEyedEpiphany realizes his feelings as a result of jealousy at seeing Touka and Sasaki interacting]].

* ''FanFic/TheRWBYLoops'' has Yang and Blake, who start dating after the expansion where Adam cuts off Yang's arm shakes them both up. Interestingly, while they do agree they fall under the "sole exception" version at the time, much later conversations have them acknowledge they might have been closeted bisexuals beforehand (but by that point they're in a committed relationship, so the point's moot).

* TheMadScientistWars has two somewhat unique examples of this. One is Xerox, who is now married to Jess 'The Chimera' -- a shapeshifter. Regardless of wether she's shifted to a boy or whatever he's cool. The other is CoolOldGuy (s) Dr. Viktor and Dr. Io, who may both be this for each other...

* Guts from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' is of the apparently-asexual variety. Due to [[spoiler:being raped as a child]], he HatesBeingTouched, but eventually, Casca is able to change his mind [[SingleTargetSexuality as applies to her]]. In some translations he even {{invokes}} the trope name word-for-word.

* * ''LightNovel/MyTeenRomanticComedySNAFU'': Hachiman is generally heterosexual despite not having the guts or motivation to do anything; however, he can't stop himself from leaning a little around Totsuka. Of course, few guys can, since Totsuka's the cutest girl in the school (or would be if he was a girl).

* {{Averted}} actually for Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, despite what the page image shows the two have always been depicted as [[BiTheWay bisexual]]. That said the trope does come into play with Ivy, who has an extreme hatred for mankind, with one explicit exception, Harley Quinn. In Harley's solo series Ivy even stated that if she ever decided stop her criminal activities and settle down she would want to do it with Harley. Basically saying she plans to marry her one day.
