* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'': In the last episodes of Season 1, we learn that M'gann is secretly a monstrous-looking White Martian (she can shapeshift into any form she wants). When Psimon makes her envision her worst fears coming true in her head, one of them is being rejected by Conner, who says, "Love you? I can't even look at you!" A few episodes later, M'gann gets the guts to tell her friends the truth, though still terrified of rejection. But then it turns out that Conner had found out about her true form before they had started dating, and had been waiting patiently for her to feel ready to confess to him.
**Artemis comes from a family of wanted criminals, so when she joins the Team, she doesn't tell anyone about her roots. Wally is mad when she messes up a mission on purpose, but he later finds out she did it–because they were facing Sportsmaster, who is her biological father and one of their worst enemies. Not wanting anyone to find out, she led them astray. When Wally discovers her reasons, they kiss and make up.

* ''Series/DoctorWho''. Danny Pink is this to Clara Oswald. After some initial implied jealousy over the fact Clara goes on adventures with the Doctor, Danny ultimately doesn't really have much of a problem with it. He's more upset about her penchant for lying about it.

** Also featured with the romance between Female Shepard and Garrus Vakarian, particularly in [=ME3=]. No matter what Shepard's done, [[spoiler: such as bringing on the destruction of the quarian race or sabotaging the genophage cure,]] Garrus will still support and care for you. Heck, even when you ''break up with him'' he's totally understanding and remains warm to you when most people would "get in the skycar and leave".

* ''[[FanFic/UltimateSpiderWoman Ultimate Spider-Woman: Change With The Light]]'' plays it straight to an extent. When Mary Jane Watson's boyfriend Randy Robertson finds out that she's secretly a web-slinging superheroine, he's not so much upset by the fact that she's a superhero as the fact that she originally wouldn't tell him the truth about it. What ''really'' pisses him off, though, is when he learns that her ArchEnemy Jack O' Lantern knows her real identity.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/RiseOfTheGuardians'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8751000/1/Guardian-of-Light Guardian of Light]]'', the main character Helen [[spoiler: discovers that Pitch is her father]]. Jack isn't her boyfriend [[spoiler: at this point]], but he doesn't hold this against her despite everything, and is willing to protect her at all costs.

* [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] (although this may be a retrospective way of seeing it) in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''. Leo seems to be accepting of all the weird things Zoë tells about happening to her - but it turns out that was only because he thought she was lying. In the words of another jerk he hangs out with, "You've got to respect a girl who realizes romantic relationships are based on lies and goes to town with it!" As soon as Leo finds out it was all true, he feels betrayed, and they eventually break off.
