* In Creator/AAPessimal's ''{{Discworld}}'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12321109/30/Gap-Year-Adventures Gap Year adventures]]'', one of the spurs behind Mariella Smith-Rhodes wanting to leave Ankh-Morpork and go off adventuring is the realisation that fellow graduate [[NiceGuy Timothy Bellamy]] is hopelessly in love with her. Mariella only sees this as a Just friend thing and she's stuck for a way to let him down gently. So she does what any rational girl would do - which is to run away. But while touring Klatch and Howondaland, she meets ''another'' fellow student. Who she has seen for the previous seven years as brash, loud, abrasive and stupid and a reminder of why she left [[UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica home]] in the first place. He's in love with her too. Mariella is reluctantly shifted from seeing him as an AbhorrentAdmirer to a position of Just Friends and at the end of the story is wavering on giving him a try.[[note]]The young idiot matures and changes as a result of his own misadventures and near-death experiences[[/note]] If only to keep her family happy.

* ''Series/TheFlash2014'': Barry Allen and Iris West. Barry has been in love with Iris for years, and it's been confirmed that Iris has been in love with him for just as long. Unfortunately, Iris was also completely oblivious to not only Barry's feelings, but her own. Not helping the situation is that the two are best friends that are so close that many can tell how they really feel about each other, and/or assume they're already a couple. Eventually, after finally confessing to Iris, Barry decides to no longer wait for her and tries to move on with Linda Park and (more successfully) Patty Spivot, while Iris continues to deny her feelings for Barry even though the only person she was really fooling was herself. It isn't until late Season 2 that they finally decide to do something about the massive amounts of UnresolvedSexualTension between them.

* ''Anime/WhisperOfTheHeart'': Sugimura confesses his feelings for Shizuku, but she tells him that she only likes him as a friend for two reasons. One: her best friend, Yuko, had a crush on him and was hurt that he didn't realize it and two: Shizuku and Sugimura have known each other for years and she had felt nothing romantic towards him. That and she dates Seiji in the end.

** Naruto and Sakura's relationship. Naruto had a [[LovingAShadow one-sided shallow crush]] on Sakura while [[SingleTargetSexuality Sakura is in love with Sasuke]]. Regardless [[FireForgedFriends they still managed to form a friendship]] over the course of the series with CharacterDevelopment and became TrueCompanions by mid-series. Yet three people InUniverse commented on their relationship possibly being romantic or at least taking it as romantic: Konohamaru and Gamakichi in Part I, and Naruto's dead father Minato in Part II. {{Subverted|Trope}} because in the end, they were legitimately '''[[LikeBrotherAndSister just friends]]'''; [[spoiler:Naruto [[OneTrueLove truly fell in love]] with and married Hinata, and Sakura married [[SingleTargetSexuality her only love Sasuke]] after the latter's definitive HeelFaceTurn]]. ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'' even has Sakura being a CoolBigSis to both [[TwiceShy Naruto and Hinata]], [[ShipperOnDeck actively trying to bring the two together]]. Creator/MasashiKishimoto [[WordOfGod even stated]] in this [[http://otakukart.com/animeblog/2017/01/31/jump-festa-2017-interview-masashi-kishimoto-future-boruto-naruto-next-generations/ interview]] that Naruto and Sakura were ''always'' going to be just friends and teammates; although he deliberately planted {{Red Herring}}s in the manga to [[TrollingCreator mess with the shippers]], he explicitly stated that ''nothing'' was set in his mind ''at all'' about making them a couple and he later reiterated that he '''never''' thought about making them a couple, because it was all about [[spoiler:[[OfficialCouple Naruto and Hinata]]]] getting married from the early stages of the manga.
