* For the first half of the first season of ''Series/{{ER}}'', Doug pursued Carol, begging her for a second chance (he cheated on her left and right the first time they dated), only to be angrily rebuffed everytime, culminating in her fiance punching him out when he showed up at their engagement party. By the second half of the season, he sadly accepted that it was over and began dating a hospital attorney... only for ''Carol'' to begin pining over ''him'', visibly wincing everytime she saw the two together

** The uber-example would be with Doug and Carol, the show's signature couple. Doug spent the first half of the first season pining for Carol, who rebuffed him, as she'd moved on and gotten engaged. By the second half of the season, he'd begrudgingly accepted this and moved on into a new relationship himself, only for ''Carol'' to be the one to be jealous every time she saw them together.

* Happens in ''Anime/YourName'', somewhat non-linearly. Taki initially has a crush on Okudera, an older woman he works with at a restaurant. When he starts [[FreakyFridayFlip swapping bodies]] with Mitsuha, the latter picks up on this and helps him get a date with Okudera. By the end of the date, she figures out that he used to like her, but has fallen for someone else [[spoiler:(Mitsuha, obviously)]]. Okudera never tells Taki directly, but she later mentions that she recently became attracted to him... [[AmbiguouslyBi specifically, the version with Mitsuha's mind in Taki's body]], though Okudera never learns about the body-swapping, she just thinks he had a personality shift.

** Leonard was arguably never really into Leslie or Dr. Stephanie as much as he was with them just for the rebound, but when Penny [[spoiler: breaks up with Leonard]] and he [[spoiler: gets together with Priya]], she re-develops feelings for him [[note]]Admittedly, this is after considerable brainwashing from Amy, who convinces Penny that Leonard was a perfect boyfriend, who dumped ''her'', not the other way around[[/note]]. In season 5, after [[spoiler: Leonard breaks up with Priya,]] he and Penny [[spoiler: get back together]]. But by the beginning of season 6, Penny is already [[spoiler: questioning the future of their relationship.]]
** There's also the on-and-off romance with Bernadette and Howard, which shouldn't being going anywhere considering that [[spoiler: they're now married]].

* A ''very'' frustrating case from ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug''- the titular heroine is in love with her crime-fighting partner, Chat Noir, and they're the same way in civilian mode- only they have no idea that they're each others' crushes, and consequently CannotSpitItOut. Even ''more'' aggravating, it's a case of PaperThinDisguise via a DominoMask (one for each of them) - literally, take off the masks (and in Chat Noir's case, a pair of fake cat ears), and their identities are exposed.
