* Creator/{{CLAMP}} are very fond of this trope, and use it frequently in their manga. Most evident in ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'', which ties together all their various stories into one multiverse (along with alternate universes thereof), and when counterparts of established romantic couples pop up, they will invariably still be in a relationship regardless of how their circumstances differ in the various worlds.

Not to be confused with OneTruePairing which is what the fans want to happen. This only applies to examples where it's made clear and deliberate in the work, regardless of what the editor happens to ship and regardless of how [[StrangledByTheRedString convinced]] you are.

* Edward and Winry in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' may take the long route to get around to admitting their feelings to each other, but Ed is shown to have wanted to marry her since they were small children, and [[SingleTargetSexuality never displays interest in being with anyone else]] ; once Winry realizes how she feels about him, she never looks back. [[spoiler:The series ends with a photograph of them as a married couple with kids.]]



* [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9763850/1/Reconciliation Reconciliation]]: Shinji and Asuka are this for each other. For a good chunk of the fic we find several alternate versions of Shinji and Asuka. The versions may be wildly different, but they are always in love with each other. Always.

* The BigBad of ''[[Fanfic/{{Cinderjuice}} The Bug Princess]]'' mockingly uses this exact term for the relationship between the leads. He's trying to rattle BJ's cage, but at the same time, he's right.



* ''Film/SleeplessInSeattle'': Lampshaded by Annie in one scene who says it is usually invoked as means of explaining all the romantic accidents. Played straight when she later goes along with the idea that Sam is the one anyway.

* In ''Film/TheConstantNymph'', Tessa has tells Lewis that they were made for each other, that she was always going to be with him, but fate made her a few years late in finding him, but young or old, they were meant to be together. It helps to know that she's only 14 and he's at least in his 30s.

* Condwiramurs and Parzival in ''Literature/{{Parzival}}''--so much so that ''both'' of their names are written on the Holy Grail, allowing them to love each other.
* Bella and Edward in ''{{Twilight}}'' are repeatedly stated to be this, giving or attempting to sacrifice everything for the sake of each other. In their universe, it is deliberately invoked by the werewolves, who bond to a single soulmate for whom they always love.

* While ''Literature/TheHungerGames'' for the most part averts this trope it is surprisingly brought up at the very end. Upon declaring her love for [[spoiler:previously fake-boyfriend Peeta]] Katniss states that the two of them ending up together "would have happened anyway", implying that she believes they would have fallen in love even if [[spoiler:they hadn't been in the Hunger Games together]].

** This is rather odd as in their ''wedding vows'' Monica explicity called Chandler "my prince and my soulmate" and a previous episode had Chandler declaring they were "meant for each other". Many fans were irritated by the ContinuitySnarl.

* Stefan and Elena from Series/TheVampireDiaries fit this trope. The producers of the series, Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec, have said in so many words that Stefan and Elena's romance or relationship is the true epic love story of the show (despite the show or plot being about a love triangle), they are anchor of the series, they are soul mates and that Stefan and Elena are each others' one true love (much to the dismay of Damon and Elena fans).

* ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'': The final episode of the series reveals "soul stones", where everyone has one on the North Star, and those that fit together are soul mates. [[spoiler:Sabrina stops her wedding with Aaron after she finds that their soul stones don't fit, and walks away from the altar--only to run into Harvey. They kiss and ride off as their soul stones fall together and fit ''perfectly'']].
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has featured several characters who are depicted in the series as approximating this. The series, however follows TheILoveYouStigma which had made it a matter of debate whether or not romance--or love beyond platonic--truly exists between the Doctor and certain exceptional companions. Given the show's longevity, and the fact the lead character, The Doctor, is thousands of year old, there is room for more than one "one true love" to be featured. The original 1963-89 series never went into this issue. The modern-day series (2005-present) has presented three partnerships where this trope is invoked: Rose Tyler, River Song (who the Doctor married), and Clara Oswald (this due to the Doctor's ''extreme'' actions following her death in an effort to undo the tragedy which played out over the course of 4.5 billion years).

* ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' both plays it straight and inverts it. Marinette, who is the titular heroine Ladybug, has such a massive crush on Adrien Agreste that she has trouble speaking around him. Adrien, who is the super hero Chat Noir, is in love with Ladybug, and flirts with her consistently. Neither is aware of the other's identity, however, so are unknowingly in love with each. The only time they reciprocate their feelings are when Marinette, while in her identity of Ladybug, meets Adrien.

Of those two women, the one that can be described as the love of his life is Catwoman -- but because TrueLoveIsBoring, they have never managed to settle down in a lasting relationship with each other.

** ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'': It's implied that Steve believes in this to a certain extent, which is why he has such a hard time with women -- he's not looking for a fling to have some fun with, he's looking for someone to spend the rest of his life with. He thought he found that with Peggy Carter, but as we all know, fate denied them a chance at a happy life together. While he's thrown himself back into the fight so he doesn't dwell on what he's lost, ''The Winter Soldier'' and ''Civil War'' suggest he might have a second chance at happiness with Sharon Carter.
