* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' this is [[ShelteredAristocrat Luke]]'s reaction to his fiancee [[BadassPrincess Natalia]] and "admirer" [[CuteBruiser Anise]]. Considering one is a RoyalBrat who is LovingAShadow and rather he just regain all his [[IdentityAmnesia memories]] right now (specifically of their ChildhoodMarriagePromise), and the other is a very flirty ''thirteen year old'' GoldDigger who invokes in-universe {{Squick}} from Luke through her antics, it's understandable. In regards to his LoveInterest though, he implies he likes the idea of her pursuing him, though that's in part [[HeroicSelfDeprecation low self esteem]].

* ''SonicTheHedgehog'' is turned off by [[ClingyJealousGirl Amy's]] constant advances.(Admittedly, she ''is'' a bit young for him, being 12 to his 16.) In one game he [[CelibateHero complains]] about so many girls being attracted to him. Since it's Sonic, who's always been known for his ego, it's unclear as to why he's complaining. Either he doesn't [[ChasteHero understand romance]], [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies avoids it on purpose]], or is annoyed by all the flirting.

This is routinely {{Gender Flip}}ped where the girl is the one who's put off by a guy who continually hits on her; [[DoubleStandard note that in that case, it can be considered stalkerish on the guy's part]], or lead into a DoggedNiceGuy plot where he eventually "wins her over."

* Gender Inverted in ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug''. Marinette at first doesn't find Chat Noir's constant flirting to be attractive, but she is crushing on his alter ego, the more sweet and shy Adrien Agreste. Funnily enough, the original idea for Ladybug and Chat Noir's dynamic plays it straight; where Chat Noir's advances aren't welcome to Ladybug, Marinette's constant pursuit of Felix is not appreciated by him.

* The modern version of this advice is usually justified by saying AllMenArePerverts (thus ignoring the fact that it is ''not the case'') and they prefer to be asked out ''too much'' and won't say no often enough. So supposedly a man saying yes doesn't really tell a woman if he really likes her or just didn't have anything better to do at the time.
