* Ephram and Amy on ''{{Everwood}}'' count as he's with Madison when Amy finally decides to be with him.

* Done interestingly on ''{{Series/Dollhouse}}'' - Paul Ballard is in love with Echo while Melly is in love with him. Then Echo falls in love with Paul, though they don't consummate the relationship. [[spoiler: Then Alpha kills Paul's mind and it's re-made without his love for Echo]], though she still loves him anyway. Then [[spoiler: in the next ten years they spend together]] he falls for her yet again and they're implied to have a relationship, but she won't say she loves him. [[spoiler: Then he dies]]. Joss Whedon, you make puppies cry.

* ''Literature/The39Clues'': [[HandsomeDevil Ian]] didn't seem to care much about [[ShrinkingViolet Amy]] as he was [[IWasOnlyPretendingToLikeYou faking feelings for her so he could run off with her clue]], but as soon as she started getting over him- or, as soon as she had convinced herself that she had- he seemed to realize his genuine feelings for her. Too bad about [[FeudingFamilies life]] [[MyBelovedSmother getting]] [[AncientConspiracy in the way]]....

* Randy and Catalina on ''Series/MyNameIsEarl''. After their CitizenshipMarriage, Catalina feels obliged to sleep with Randy, but is determined to do it as badly as possible to put him off. Only... afterward, she can't believe how sensitive he was to her, and her behavior in the bedroom has put him off. Said behavior involved rubbing a dead fish on her armpits, hiding it under the bed, and jumping him while saying "Make love to me like your father did to your mother."

* 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 DominoMasks- literally, take off the masks (and in Chat Noir's case, a pair of fake cat ears), and their identities are exposed.

* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaPresentsTheRidonculousRace'' has Devin and Carrie, a.k.a the Best Friends. Carries has been crushing on Devin since they were young kids but he has [[ObliviousToLove stayed oblivious to her feelings.]] Eventually Carrie decides to try and give up on him and focus on the race...just in time for him to realise he's actually in love with her. So most of the series involves Carrie trying to confess her feelings to Devin with the last third reversing this and having ''him'' trying to confess to ''her''. [[spoiler: In the end he does and TheyDo.]]

* It was practically a RunningGag between Big Pete and Ellen in ''TheAdventuresOfPeteAndPete''. In the initial shorts, Ellen would occasionally introduce herself as Pete's girlfriend, causing him to promptly correct her saying [[ShesNotMyGirlfriend "You're a girl, you're a friend, but you're not a girlfriend."]] In the series, very frequently, when one would be interested in the other, the other would be trying to pursue, or be pursued by someone else, causing the initial party to get jealous. Their relationship never went past a kiss in the episode "Day of the Dot".

Their relationship never went past a kiss in the episode "Day of the Dot".



* ''BrooklynNineNine'' has a fairly classic example: in Season 1 Jake has a thing for Amy, which he mainly expresses through the adult equivalent of pigtail pulling, so by the time he gets around to admitting his feelings properly, Amy has begun a relationship with her old friend Teddy that seems to be getting pretty serious, and she kindly but decisively turns him down. Jake then spends the first few episodes of Season 2 completely hung up on Amy, but then dates Sophia - who, despite being a SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute for Amy, actually gets him to the point of being able to declare himself over his old crush. This happy state lasts for all of about two episodes - then Jake's plans for a surprise DoubleDate go horrendously awry, with Amy revealing that she'd been trying to find a way to break up with Teddy, and Teddy countering her sudden outburst at dinner by claiming that her feelings for Jake are the reason their relationship failed. Ultimately, Jake and Sophia stay together despite this revelation, while Amy and Teddy break up, leaving Amy in more or less the same position as Jake was in the previous season (though handling it far more maturely, naturally).
