Buddy Love [[XMeetsY Meets]] A RoadTripPlot. A pair of [[{{Foil}} mismatched characters]], often a [[KnightInSourArmor world wise man]] and [[RichBitch a high society woman]] (though the gender roles can be altered) find themselves in a situation were they must travel together to reach a goal. For the woman it will often mean [[TheHomewardJourney returning home]], while the man will often travel for the sake of [[HeroismIncentive some kind of reward for his troubles]]. They [[BelligerentSexualTension wonít like each other at first]], [[HilarityEnsues there will be squabbles because of their class differences]], but [[ItsTheJourneyThatCounts over time they find a common bond]] and [[WillTheyOrWontThey slowly fall in love]]. The climax will often be after the couple has exchanged their FirstKiss, AlmostKiss, or make love. The man will sneak off in the night to take care of UnfinishedBusiness towards their mutual benefit, only for the woman to [[NotStayingForBreakfast wake up alone]]. She feels betrayed, and finishes the journey on her own. The man will [[HonorBeforeReason forgo his reward]] and [[RaceForYourLove make a dash after her]] for [[LoveRedeems the sake of true love]], maybe even defeat the BigBad, and eventually they live HappilyEverAfter.

* ''TheSureThing'' is a variation. The two romantic leads, Gib and Allison, are basically the same social class, but [[UptightLovesWild he is a would-be party animal and she is a compulsive planner]]. They are traveling together from the east coast to California, her to meet her fiance and him to hook up with a woman who is guaranteed to sleep with him. Much BelligerentSexualTension is generated between them on the way. [[spoiler: It's not till they return home that it's resolved.]]
