This is more than a little jarring because it is just freeing up Bob to be in a new relationship (or to be single), without actually showing how the last one ended. Often done to prevent ShippingBedDeath, or because [[TrueLoveIsBoring the writers simply don't want to deal with writing out the mundaneness of an actual relationship]].

* ''Film/MenInBlack''. Linda Fiorentino is (kinda) WillSmith's love interest; come the next movie, she's outta there! (Because she apparently ''wanted'' to go back to normal life...)
** It's also implied that WillSmith has been doing it to all of his partners since Kay left in order to prevent them dedicating their lives to the job.

* Josh Safran, ''Series/GossipGirl'' showrunner for the second half of season four and for season five, wanted to do this with Chuck and Blair in the season three premiere in order to make his own favorite ship Dan/Blair happen. Given that the entirety of season two was devoted to a WillTheyWontThey between Chuck and Blair, the two of them not getting together until the last scene of season two and them being [[FanPreferredCouple by far the most popular ship of the show]] such a development would have been strange to say the least.
