* Gender Inverted in ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug''. Marinette at first doesn't find Chat Noir's constant flirting to be attractive, but she is crushung 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.

* ''Literature/OneOfOurs'': A girl at college comes on a little too strong to Claude.
--> “Their last excursion was made by moonlight, and after that evening Claude avoided Miss Millmore when he could do so without being rude. She was attractive to him no more. It was her way to subdue by clinging contact. One could scarcely call it design; it was a degree less subtle than that. She had already thus subdued a pale cousin in Atlanta, and it was on this account that she had been sent North. She had, Claude angrily admitted, no reserve,—though when one first met her she seemed to have so much. Her eager susceptibility presented not the slightest temptation to him. He was a boy with strong impulses, and he detested the idea of trifling with them.”

* ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' presents this trope mostly for comedy, but with a bit of sad irony behind it. Nyarko's [[ClingyJealousGirl clingy]], [[ManicPixieDreamGirl manic]], and [[LovableSexManiac horny]] way of expressing her feelings for Mahiro puts him off and makes him respond with {{Slapstick}}, which only makes Nyarko redouble her efforts, meaning she's only sabotaging herself. Mahiro has remarked that her zaniness isn't just bothersome, but makes her declarations of love hard to believe (especially since she's fond of telling fibs for humorous effect). After he tells her as much in one episode, Nyarko responds that she has a hard time expressing herself ''without'' being goofy, but promises to keep saying it until he believes her -- [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming and then says "I love you" in a sweet, heartfelt, and honest manner]].

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'': Kaneki has feelings for unassuming, shy, and kind girls like Rize and Eto. They're both attractive and like books like he does with Eto actually being his favorite author. At least before he finds out they're ghouls with homicidal crushes on him who simultaneously flirt with him while trying to kill/eat him.

* Sousuke from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'': Tessa was a gentle, weak {{Dojikko}} DamselInDistress... sounds good so far for the manly ego, right? Only... her pursuit and tactics for chasing him are ''way'' too aggressive. He was ''scared'' of her, and had to constantly protect himself from being taken advantage of by her. Numerous times, she slithered out of her bed at night and [[DudeShesLikeInAComa tried to take advantage of him in his sleep]]. Unfortunately for her, it's explained that ever since the past, Sousuke has gotten SICK of [[EvenTheGuysWantHim aggressive admirers]] trying to rape him. ([[StalkerWithACrush Gauron]] made it worse.) The fact that she's his ''commanding officer'' seems to have a lot to do with Sousuke's nervousness with her affections. He understands and is comfortable with the power dynamic between a commander and a subordinate, but when she tries to push a more, err, ''personal'' element into it, that drives him out of his comfort zone and into a social dimension where he does not know how to respond. On the other hand, the first girl he ever develops feelings for is a bashful {{Tsundere}} who expresses her feelings for him in the most roundabout way. Nami is similar.

* There's a similar moment in ''Series/DrQuinnMedicineWoman'' when the titular character rather timidly makes advances to husband Sully. When he asks why she's being so meek, she shyly admits "I was always taught. . .a woman shouldn't ask. . ." Sully assures her that not only does he not mind, in the Cheyenne culture, women aren't exactly encouraged to make the first move, they aren't discouraged either.
