* In the first issue of ArchieComics, "Pep Comics 28". Archie had just moved into the neighborhood; albeit a couple years younger than he was in later issues and with the nickname "Chic" and tries in his first issue to impress his neighbor Betty Cooper to try to get her to date him through dangerous stunts which she believes make him look arrogant. After Veronica moves in during "Archie Comics 1", the whole dynamic was changed to a BettyAndVeronica format where Betty has a really big and sometimes obsessive crush on Archie.
* ComicBook/{{X 23}} had a crush on [[JerkJock Hellion]], who believed she was a mindless, apathetic robot and was not shy about saying so. This was the source of much painful confusion for X-23, and after getting some CharacterDevelopment, she left [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} the school]] so she could sort out her [[{{Tykebomb}} tra]][[DarkAndTroubledPast uma]]. Later on, Hellion (who was just beginning his ''own'' Journey Of Self Discovery) went through a TraumaCongaLine in which everything he had once believed about the world was turned upside down, and went off to find her. The comic makes it rather clear that he isn't interested in her out of genuine love, but rather a desperate need to no longer be alone- and once Hellion shows up, a ''far'' more confident X-23 rejects him. This probably counts as a {{Deconstruction}}.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/ForScentimentalReasons'', WesternAnimation/PepeLePew is chasing Penelope, as usual. He winds up plunging into a blue paint bucket, which masks his smell. Penelope falls in the neighboring rain bucket, rendering her ragged and soaked and not so pretty. The switcheroo follows, as she chases him.

Added DiffLines:

* Occurs in the first ''Film/SpiderMan'' movie. Peter crushes painfully on MJ the whole movie, when she finally starts to warm up to him at the end of the film he's decided that he can't be with her at the moment. Of course, that stops by the time the sequel rolls around.

* TruthInTelevision, the French have an expression for this situation: Actually, Suis-moi je te fuis, fuis-moi je te suis (literally : "Follow me and I'll flee, flee me and I'll follow").

* TruthInTelevision, anyone can relate to this trope at some point or other. The French even have an expression for this common situation: "Je t'aime, moi non plus" (literally : "I love you, neither do I").
** Actually, the French saying relating to this is more "Suis-moi je te fuis, fuis-moi je te suis" (literally : "Follow me and I'll flee, flee me and I'll follow"). "Je t'aime, moi non plus" describes more a [[LoveHateRelationship Love Hate Relationship]].

See also AllLoveIsUnrequited, WillTheyOrWontThey, SpeakNowOrForeverHoldYourPeace (for the former crush who waits until the last minute), LoveRevelationEpiphany (for realizing their feelings because of the confession) and RomanticFalseLead. This is not to be confused with YouAreTooLate.

In cases where Carol is not present and Bob moves on on his own, this becomes a SubTrope of PerspectiveReversal. See also AllLoveIsUnrequited, WillTheyOrWontThey, SpeakNowOrForeverHoldYourPeace (for the former crush who waits until the last minute), LoveRevelationEpiphany (for realizing their feelings because of the confession) and RomanticFalseLead. This is not to be confused with YouAreTooLate.
