* For {{Daria}}'s classmates Mack and Jodie, this seems to be the only thing keeping them together. Mack often feels neglected by Jodie due to her mountain of responsibilities, but not once does he ever explore other options, nor do any of his female classmates make those options known. Are we sure these are teenagers? But then again, there's a reason why his fanfic nickname is [[PositiveDiscrimination St. Mack]].

* PrettyLittleLiars are more and more clearly following this trope. Every single lesbian that shows up on the show turns into a love interest for Emily, including one who at first bullied Emily and ''held her head under water''. The patterns seems so far to be unaffected by her whether or not she even is single at the moment.

* Series/CriminalMinds seemed to be setting Derek Morgan up with a black woman who was involved in one of the cases, even though they didn't seem to have much chemistry, but she hasn't been seen for a while. It would be nice if the show would stop tiptoeing around things and just set him up with [[TechnoWizard Garcia]] - they've been flirting pretty much since the show began.

** In the second season, Tina officially dumped Artie for Mike over the summer when they both worked at "Asian Camp". This was the beginning of both characters going from their race being incidental to [[{{Flanderization}} it being all they ever talk about]].

** In the second season, Tina officially dumped Artie for Mike over the summer when they both worked at "Asian Camp". This was the beginning of both characters going from What makes this a particularly annoying example is because their race being incidental was almost never brought up in the first season. They were two kids in the club who happened to be Asian. Come Season 2, it became [[{{Flanderization}} it being all they ever talk about]].talked about]] before being dialed back in Season 4 when they broke up.

** It's later implied by SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} that Wiccan may have subconsciously used his powers to make Hulkling fall in love with him, though this is never confirmed. And of course, it's [[ConsummateLiar Loki]].

** {{Averted}} in other cases though. Jem is the girlfriend of the AmbiguouslyBrown Rio and Aja (who is asian) is dating Craig (who is White).
