* ''FanFic/{{Rules}}'': Light Yagami, with his looks and charm, could literally have any girl he would want. He's dated several over the years, and no matter what their status in life, they fawned over him and would do anything for him, including giving up their hopes and dreams to become the perfect, obedient Japanese housewife. [[spoiler:Then comes Charlie. American, foul-mouthed, independent Charlie, who ''hated'' him at first. She fought with him, infuriated him more than anyone else besides Elijah/L. She was unlike any girl he had ever met. It wasn't hard to see that she would be the one he would fall for in the end]].

* Most anyone who has found a person they love and build a working relationship with will honestly believe it. Unfortunately, this is impossible to test while still alive, so you just never know until it's already over.

One of the most popular variants is the TroubledButCute guy who only dates so-called "easy" girls until he finds true love with the GirlNextDoor -- falling into the old (sexist) adage that "there are girls you sleep with and girls you marry," a popular mantra for parents who didn't mind their son "[[AManIsNotAVirgin sowing his wild oats]]", but [[DoubleStandard didn't want a girl who was less than virginal]] marrying into the family. (The same is, of course, true of women who are presented as making a distinction between "men they sleep with" and "men they marry", although in accord with the DoubleStandard, it's less likely to be brought up as an issue).

* Danny Zuko in ''{{Grease}}'' prefers "girls who put out," only to fall for sweet and naive Sandy (at least, she is until the end of the film, making this a possible subversion where the True Love changes in order to conform to their partner's "type").

* ''Film/{{Shrek}}'': Princess Fiona dreamt having a typical storybook ending with her PrinceCharming, who would slay the dragon and climbed to the highest room in the tallest tower and break the curse that turned her into an ogre at night. She ends up falling in love with Shrek, an ogre who is a far cry from PrinceCharming, and when the curse breaks she ends up becoming an ogre permanently (which doesn't really bother her since her mannerisms were ogre-like in both of her forms). In the sequel, when Shrek offers her the chance to live their HappilyEverAfter in beautiful human forms, can you guess what Fiona's response is?

* Sumire from ''Manga/TrampsLikeUs'' has it in mind to date a man with her "Three Highs" - [[AllAmazonsWantHercules taller than her, more educated than her, and earns more than her]] because she's learned from experience that NoGuyWantsAnAmazon. Naturally, she falls in love with Takeshi, a short and out-of-work modern dance student.

to:

* In the first chapter of ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'', Asuka stated that she wasn't supposed to fall for a meek, insecure boy like Shinji:
-->"I don't know! I just keep thinking about it! I'm not supposed to be attracted to boys like you! I'm supposed to want a real man like Kaji! I'm not supposed to be wondering what it would feel like to kiss you, to have your arms around me! It's not supposed to feel this good to do it! It's not supposed to feel so good to be lying here with you! I shouldn't want this to never end..." Her outburst ran down into confusion. "Why is it you?"
