* ''Series/LastManStanding:'' Eve is caught off-guard when her boyfriend Rob tells her he loves her while they're hanging out. Mandy and Kristin tell her that if she's not sure how she feels, she has to dump him. When Eve tries to do so, Rob reveals the only reason he said it was because his older brother told him girls like it when guys do that. They agree to just pretend it never happened and ignore any advice their siblings give them in the future.

* Porn films and videos are criticized for many reasons, one of which is the fact that - with the exception of actual porn ''movies'' with plots and characters, and even then it's not ubiquitous - the phrase "I love you" is rarely uttered.

Note this is essentially an English-speaking world thing. In some languages a perfectly fine translation of "I love you" can be a ''much'' weaker sentence with much less powerful implications, as even in English the term can be used casually and in a wide variety of ways. A {{Woolseyism}} may be needed in translation to get the proper tone. [[note]]In [[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench French]] "''aimer''" means "like" as much as "love". Spanish has "Te quiero" and "Te amo", which both mean I Love You, but the later is MUCH more serious and rarely given. "Te quiero", in fact, literally translates to "I want you", which implies a more superficial or subdued love than "Te amo" implies.[[/note]] And even within the English-speaking world, dating works differently in different cultures.

In German the literal translation of "I love you" - ''Ich liebe dich'' - implies a romantic meaning much more than in English, while the phrase ''Ich hab dich lieb'' stands for platonic love likely meaning love between parents and children. In English both translates to "I love you". [[/note]] And even within the English-speaking world, dating works differently in different cultures.

* ''Theatre/AnneOfTheThousandDays'':
-->'''Anne''': I could have said, "I love you, I love you, I love you!" I didn't say it. Because I don't. And whether you love me I don't know.

* Gabrielle Aplin's "Please Don't Say You Love Me" is basically the rationale for this trope in song form.
--> Heavy words are hard to take, under pressure precious things can break
--> And how we feel is hard to fake, so let's not give the game away
--> Just please don't say you love me, 'cause I might not say it back
--> Doesn't mean my heart stops skipping when you look at me like that
--> There's no need to worry when you see just where we're at
--> Just please don't say you love me, 'cause I might not say it back...

* {{Parodied}} on ''DanVs,'' when [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Dan]] is pulling an OfCorpseHesAlive with [[ExtremeDoormat Chris]] (who's not dead, just extremely close) to make him "agree" to going along with his revenge plot. At one point he fakes Chris saying "I love you," then acts uncomfortable before hastily changing the subject. Note that this part happened when nobody else was even around to trick.

* Despite romancing many women in the movie series, JamesBond usually never utters the phrase (though the women utter it regularly). The only exception to date: he says "I love you" when he proposes marriage to Tracy in ''Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService''. [[spoiler: It does not end well.]]

* The above example is from ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim''. Scott has been going out with Knives (she 17 and him 23) The stigma comes from the fact that Scott is still recovering from the brutal breakup with Natalie V. "Envy" Adams a year prior and one of the reasons he entered a relationship with Knives is out of desire for something simple. While the relationship ultimately fails because of Scott going with Ramona, the implications remain that even if Ramona didn't enter the picture, Knives' LoveConfession would've caused major problems for the relationship.
