* In ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' The High Priestess of Darkness is unsublty interested in Spinnock Durav and already a regular intercourse partner, but Spinnock falls in love with the human priestess Salind, who seems less than thrilled about it.

It also harkens back to his youth as portrayed in ''Literature/TheKharkanasTrilogy'' where he had the attention of every woman (and dragon) in sight, but wasn't specifically interested in any of those.

* ''FanFic/{{Rules}}'': Light Yagami has had many girlfriends over the years and fully admits that, back home in Japan, he could literally have any girl he'd want, fawning over him and obeying his every whim. [[spoiler:The American Charlie, however, never falls for his charms. She constantly fights with him and infuriates him more than anyone besides Elijah/L -- and is the only girl that has ever ''connected'' with him. Light is distressed to realize that the only girl he has ever wanted might be the only girl to never want ''him'', and is rather relieved and elated when he's proven wrong]].

** Kirche may be a female version, since it's strongly implied in the anime that she ReallyGetsAround - or at least used to, before falling for saito and, after, Mr. Colbert.

** Noah "Puck" Puckerman, having dated Quinn, Rachel, Mercedes, Santana and half the Cougars in Lima, finds himself falling head over heels, to the point of joining Celibacy Club because he wants to be less of an "I'm a Man I can't help it" type guy, for Lauren Zizes, President of the AV club and only girl on the school's wrestling team, because she's as much of a BadAss as him. She initially, despite being attracted to him, tells him they'll have to be JustFriends at first because "she needs to be wooed." And Puck -- who formerly couldn't even get through an evening with Quinn without sexting Santana - is okay with this arrangement. In short -- we have one Casanova who's found a love match!

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' has Laslow, an Inigo {{expy}} who just like the original, flirts around quite a bit and is turned down either on-screen or off-screen, but when he falls in love he ''does'' stay loyal to his wife, who sometimes will not believe him when he gives her a LoveConfession. [[spoiler: Completely justified: Laslow isn't an Inigo {{expy}}... he actually '''is''' an OlderAndWiser Inigo.]]
