* In ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'', Star Butterfly has an obvious crush on [[DreadfulMusician Oskar Greason]], getting incredibly flustered whenever she sees him. But by the end of season 2, she's completely lost interest in him [[spoiler:due to having fallen in love with her best friend Marco Diaz]], but now Oskar has a crush on Star.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': Chapter 469 has Naruto's [[LovingAShadow long-time crush]] Sakura tell him that [[FalseConfession she's no longer interested in Sasuke and wants to be with him instead]]. After she spends the entire second half of the chapter trying to convince Naruto that [[BlatantLies she really does love him now]], [[WhatTheHellHero he calls her out for lying]] and then [[ShipSinking rejects her outright]] by telling her that he '''hates''' people who lie to themselves, because he ''knows'' [[SingleTargetSexuality she still loves Sasuke]] and he realized that she ''only now'' claimed to love him for '''the hero''' he became ''after'' he defeated Pain, rather than '''the person''' he always was and always will be--making it clear that this was {{Deconstructed|Trope}}. It shows Naruto's CharacterDevelopment in that he's not as starved for attention as he once was and has moved past the GreenEyedMonster state that he was in back in Part I, where he constantly felt inferior to [[RivalTurnedEvil Sasuke]], especially since he has finally achieved his lifelong dream of being acknowledged by all of Konoha after he defeated Pain.

** In ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'', [[spoiler:[[LoveRevelationEpiphany Naruto realizes his love for Hinata]] and confesses his love to her. Hinata has been in love with him for nearly her whole life, so this makes her incredibly happy...for a moment. In reality, she had already made up her mind to [[BigSisterInstinct save her younger sister Hanabi]], so she [[BreakHisHeartToSaveHim "rejects"]] him and goes with [[BigBad Toneri]]. [[NotGoodWithRejection Naruto does not take it well]], [[AngstComa passes out for three days]], and comes very close to ''[[HeroicBSOD giving up on everything]]''. It's ultimately thanks to [[ShipperOnDeck Sakura]] who helps Naruto realize that Hinata didn't actually reject him because [[SingleTargetSexuality Hinata has only ever loved him]], similar to how she herself has only ever loved Sasuke, and that will ''never'' change]].

** In the original stories, Barbara wasn't just slightly older nor still in her teens. She was in her early-mid 20's and a college graduate. Eventually, she was aged closer to Dick and given an eidetic memory to explain how she managed to complete school so quickly. Her term in the U.S. Congress (minimum age 25) has quietly been retconned out.

* Josh and Donna from ''TheWestWing'' were ''constantly'' on this trope. Josh gets jealous of Donna's random dates in season 2. Then Josh moves on enough to get a crush on Joey Lucas, and Donna gets jealous. Then Donna moves on enough to get involved with Cliff Caley, and Josh gets jealous. Then Josh starts dating Amy Gardner, and Donna gets jealous. Then Donna starts dating Jack Reese, and Josh gets jealous. Then Josh starts dating Amy Gardner again, and Donna gets jealous. And this is all ''before'' either of them ever said anything to make their [[UnresolvedSexualTension romantic tension]] anything other than an ambiguous ShipTease.
