** The tradition continues with Blackwall and Solas in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', who can both dump the female PlayerCharacter romancing them, though they make it clear it's ''not'' because of you or anything you said or did, but because of their own issues behind the scenes. [[spoiler:[[InsecureLoveInterest Blackwall]] reveals that he's a former war criminal who's been living under a false identity for ''years'', and Solas is really Fen'Harel, the ancient elvhen god of legend.]]

* In the Swedish comic ''ComicBook/{{Rocky}}'', the titular character's girlfriend tells him that there are a couple thing she needs to talk with him about. Rocky, being GenreSavvy, predicts that the breakup clichés are going to pile up, and correctly enough, his girlfriend proceeds to tell him that "I don't know what I feel anymore" and "I need to be alone for a while", after this she, with tears in her eyes, asks him to say something, and he simply and bitterly answers "You forgot 'It's not you. It's me'!"

* ''Webcomic/TheGodsOfArrKelaan'' played this with a God dismissing his High Priest.

* Spoofed in ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive''. "It's not you, it's me. I don't want to be involved with a pussy."
** Also referenced [[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp01142005.shtml here]].

* In the Pre-Crisis universe, Franchise/{{Superman}} had several personal reasons to resist a romance, and they vary depending on the story and era. In ''Comicbook/KryptonNoMore'', he considers himself an outsider. In ''Comicbook/WhatEverHappenedToTheManOfTomorrow'', he cannot choose between Comicbook/LoisLane and Comicbook/LanaLang because his choice would hurt Lana, and he would never want to hurt her.
