** Then there's River Song, supposedly The Doctor's wife. She is also a time traveler, but moves on her own. Though it was indicated at first that they are meeting in roughly reverse order, later episodes show that it's a little more complicated than that. For example, the Doctor is present at her birth, but though it's the first time she meets him, it's not the last time he meets her. The only point we know for sure is that [[spoiler: the ''last'' time River meets the Doctor is in 'Silence in the Library' in which she dies.]] His last encounter with her is as yet unknown, since from the audience's point of view, it hasn't happened yet. Given how randomly he goes through time, it's not even certain that ''he'' would know the last time he met her.

Added DiffLines:

*** "The Husbands of River Song" is, from the Doctor's point of view, their last time together. The Doctor spends the next twenty-four (relative) years in seclusion until "The Return of Dr. Mysterio".

** This trope has been zigzagged a lot with regards to the Doctor and Clara Oswald (WordOfGod, specifically Creator/PeterCapaldi, is that their relationship was a romance, just not a standard one). To explain in detail would turn this into a copy of the [[Characters/DoctorWhoRevivalSeriesCompanionsClaraOswald character page for Clara]], as well as the recap pages for a good portion of the episodes from Series 9 (2015) so best to just go there.

However, one straight example of this to note is the Eleventh Doctor (as played by Creator/MattSmith) encountering one of Clara's many incarnations in Victorian London and falling for her in "The Snowmen" (opening the door for the romance that followed).

* In the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'', pairing up nearly anyone in the franchise with Silver (except for Blaze, who's from another dimension, and Gold, who's in the same time period as Silver) can come across as this. Amy, Tikal, Shade, you name it.

* ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome'' gave us Kirk and [[GirlOfTheWeek Gillian Taylor]].

* ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome'' gave us Kirk and [[GirlOfTheWeek Gillian Taylor]].Taylor]], although it's very low-key compared to Kirk's usual romances. Apart from an Italian dinner cut short, a bit of flirting, and a hug, nothing happens between them. (This is probably because the part was originally written for Eddie Murphy.)
