* 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.

* Most anyone 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.

* 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?"

* In ''Literature/AnneOfGreenGables'', Anne Shirley had always insisted that she would only marry a man who fit her ideal. Tall, dark, handsome were non-negotiable requirements. Preferably one who owned a castle somewhere, like Spain. In the end, she winds up with Gilbert Blythe. She had rejected him many times for not fitting her ideal. (Granted, Gilbert ''is'' tall, dark, and the handsomest guy in her hometown -- but he trained as a doctor, he was too much of a [[GirlNextDoor Boy Next Door]], and she [[IDontWantToRuinOurFriendship didn't want to ruin their friendship.]])
** Or their [[BelligerentSexualTension lack of friendship]].
** The BelligerentSexualTension was the focus of the first book, not the rest of the series. At the end of ''Anne of Green Gables,'' Gilbert and Anne talk, Anne admits that holding a grudge for once incident years ago was silly, and they become friends. Given that Anne ''does'' have feelings for Gil but won't acknowledge them and Gilbert is not at all subtle about his feelings, it turns very quickly into a JustFriends relationship where EveryoneCanSeeIt.

That said, the female protagonist often travels along a different arc: they will fall for someone she'd usually consider [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys unsuitable or downright dangerous]] after a string of more sensible partners. Almost invariably, it comes across as "even if a woman decides to date men [[DoggedNiceGuy who can at least spell "morality,"]] they will still get ditched as she falls for the [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys Bad Boy]] anyway."

Still, most audiences [[MST3KMantra aren't interested in love-as-political-point-scoring]] and will treat the work as a love story.

* Strangely, some of the least ridden with UnfortunateImplications versions turn up in {{Romance Novel}}s. Mr. {{Troubled But Cute}}'s usual tastes may be more sex friends or a cash payment away from definitely not being any sort of friend at all, and Mr. DoggedNiceGuy sometimes turns out to be [[VillainWithGoodPublicity too good to be true]]. It does make sense: The first guy actually has a relationship with Miss GirlNextDoor because they're not too busy doing other things, while the other guy loses to the 'bad boy' because, well, honesty counts.

* Part of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' 's mother Kushina Uzumaki's dying wish was for him to find a girl like [[FieryRedhead herself]] and all GenerationXerox was implying such. Even moreso Naruto had a crush on Sakura, who fell under this type. But the girl he truly fell for, [[spoiler: Hinata]] is the [[ShyBlueHairedGirl complete opposite]] of what Kushina wished in the end.

* Rei in ''Manga/{{MARS}}'' dates any girl willing to sleep with him, most of them shown as brash, shallow and self-obsessed, until he meets painfully introverted and artistic Kira, who has some serious issues regarding sex and is the first girl not to immediately make for the bedroom.
* ''Manga/{{Gravitation}}'''s Eiri Yuki had a track record that consisted of "girls who won't mind if I forget about them post-sex, but who are happy to get an encore should I deign to call them." He ends up with [[ClingyJealousGirl clingy,]] demanding, (and male) Shuichi.



* 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.
* In ''Manga/LovelyComplex'', Risa, who's [[HugeSchoolgirl unusually tall for a girl]], wants a boyfriend who's taller than her. Otani, who's unusually short for a boy, wants a cute girlfriend who's shorter than him. Take a wild guess as to whom each one hooks up with in the end. Admittedly, they have a lot in common aside from the height difference, but it takes quite a while for them to get over that mental hurdle.



* In ''Manga/SasamekiKoto'', Ushio makes it very clear that [[SchoolgirlLesbians she only cares for extremely cute girls]]--much to the lament of her best friend, Sumika, who does not consider herself cute in the least, being a rather tall karate prodigy. Things become rather ... complicated, once Ushio realizes she has developed feelings for Sumika after all.
