Added DiffLines:

* "I'm Right Here" by Samantha Mumba has a similar premise, where a woman is searching for her Mr. Right and wants all the good men who are out there to let all the single women know where they are. Unusually for this type of song though, she's quite optimistic about finding one.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': Ashi was among a group of sisters born and raised solely to kill Samurai Jack. Instead, she fell in love with him for showing her that Aku wasn't the force of good her vicious mother forced her to believe and for being the first person to treat her like a human being as opposed to a mindless soldier.

** It is unlikely that ''any'' fictional character has tried harder to find a husband than Lola (from the Thriller Bark Saga) has, having asked 4452 men to marry her, including ''all'' of the male members of the Straw Hats (even the non-human Chopper and the undead Brook). They all said no. If [[{{Gonk}} her appearance]] doesn't turn them away, her habit of coming on too strong will; it tends to be the first thing she asks upon meeting men. Luckily, she takes rejection in stride, and she still shows no signs of giving up.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'': Boa Hancock falls in love with Luffy [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe Because He Was Nice To Her]]. Well, that, and he punched out a [[AristocratsAreEvil World Noble]], one of only two people in the world with the guts to go through with it. [[spoiler: And the World Nobles were those who actually enslaved and tortured Hancock and her sisters nearly into insanity, making her the... really troubled person she is.]]

** In ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', while their relationship is more platonic (they could be described as dating at best by the movie's end), Judy's relationship with Nick is largely antagonistic and vitriol-filled at first. However, when her mission is in jeopardy, he stands up for her and convinces her bosses to let her try and finish since they still had time left, which obviously touched her. Also when he delves into his backstory and she learns what made him this way.

* From ''{{Holes}}'', we have Miss Katherine who fell for Sam the onion man because he was a generally friendly NiceGuy, compared to Trout Walker, who was rich, disrespectful, loud, and stupid. [[StarCrossedLovers It doesn't end well for them,]] [[TearJerker alas.]]
** We also have Sarah, who married the sweet Eliya Yelnats despite the fact that he was apparently cursed. Eliya himself could be considered a gender-flipped version, since he initially pursued the spoilt, idiotic Myra and ended up HappilyMarried to the sensible and capable Sarah.

* In ''LightNovel/MyTeenRomanticComedySNAFU'', the trope likely applies to Yui. [[spoiler: According to the OtherWiki, Hachiman saved Yui's dog from a car accident that had him in hospital for 3 weeks.]]

** ''Theodore [[EmbarrasingMiddleName Evelyn]] Mosby,'' the [[NiceGuy perfect husband material]] anyone could wish for, as he is very sweet, caring, and usually goes our of his way in making people feel loved and valued. Him trailing in a string of failed romances is by no means caused by a character flaw (other than the fact that he quote naive and way often overdoes his romantic gestures); rather, it is mostly caused by unfortunate circumstances [[spoiler: and his inability to come into terms with his lingering feelings for Robin]] Once he gets over that hurdle, however, he finally meets the girl of this dreams and rightfully earns his happily ever after with the Mother.
