* Nicely played in ''Film/BringingUpBaby'' when Cary Grant's character is engaged to his coworker who basically says that she [[CantHaveSexEver will not have sex with him when they are married]] and their marriage's purpose is to solidify their working relationship. The next few scenes include CaryGrant experiencing MeetCute with Creator/KatharineHepburn, so when Cary's fiance is shown again the lack of sparks becomes even more apparent.

* In ''Literature/ApparatusInfernum'', this is Ritsuko's reason for breaking up with the guy her family would have liked her to marry. Things were pleasant enough, but she realised that if that's ''all'' there was, both of them were just wasting their time.

* This is pretty much how the {{Superman}}[=/=]ComicBook/WonderWoman ship has been torpedoed in the past (and a major reason it stays that way outside of Elseworlds): there was really nothing there to make them stay more than friends.
** With the recent ComicBook/{{New 52}} reboot, however, the relationship seems to have a chance of sticking.

* It happens twice on ''TheSecretLifeOfTheAmericanTeenager'' with [[spoiler: Ricky and Adrian]]. The first time it happens, she blames it on pregnancy hormones (pregnant by another man, [[spoiler: Ben, to be specific]]), while he sees it as affirmation that they should just be friends, an idea he was already mulling over. The following season, she feels sparks with another guy, but thinks she needs to kiss [[spoiler: Ricky]] one last time to be sure that they're really over. He reluctantly obliges, and neither of them feel anything.
