* Very prevalent in both the film ''Film/{{Once}}'' and its stage adaptation. The two unnamed protagonists, both estranged from their significant others, form a deep connection through writing and recording music together. Initially, their goal is to make money to send the Guy on a plane to America to reunite with his ex. However, Guy and Girl find themselves developing feelings for each other in the few days they've spent together. The Girl even confesses her love to him -- [[TeasingFromBehindTheLanguageBarrier just in Czech, which Guy doesn't understand.]] [[spoiler:Ultimately though, the two go their separate ways, both of them choosing to get back with their exes.

** Superman and Lois had a good 55 year run of this in the comics (although, their Earth 2 counterparts tied the knot decades ago, they got together in the movies, and they had even started dating in the comics current continuity about 6 years prior). Superman was either too Super for an earth woman or too alien or he had to stay dedicated to his mission. ComicBook/PostCrisis, it was more that he wanted Lois to love him as Clark since he considered that to be his TrueSelf.

* ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'': Quite a bit between Gambit and Storm, despite the former's romance with Rogue. Tellingly, their friendship has soured a bit since the latter's marriage to Black Panther.

** Prior to the marriage, this was the basis of Comicbook/BlackPanther and Storm's relationship as well. The two had been very close friends as children and were obviously in love, but their responsibilities (ruling Wakanda and being a member of the Comicbook/XMen, respectively) made it impossible for them to start a relationship.

* ''Film/AllThisAndHeavenToo'' is all about the doomed romance between Theo the married duke and Henriette, governess to his children. There are longing looks aplenty and passionate speeches, but they never get farther than Theo kissing Henriette's hands, before Theo kills his wife in a fit of rage.

* ''Film/ThePrincessDiaries'': Queen Clarisse and her head of security, Joe. It's implied that they've been in love with each other for years, but Clarisse's marriage to King Rupert and devotion to Genovia stayed their hand. Judging by certain comments made in the sequel, this fact is not a secret to anyone in court or even most of Genovia -- [[spoiler:when Clarisse and Joe get married at the end, even the archbishop mutters "finally"]].

* One of the many things TheSearchers is famous for is the completely silent interactions between Ethan and his sister-in-law, which most people interpret as an unspoken form of this trope.

* Link and Zelda have this in the ValiantComics [[ComicBook/TheLegendOfZelda series]] based on the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda original]] [[VideoGame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink two]] ''Zelda'' games. It's only unresolved because she doesn't want to admit she returns his feelings; if it were up to him, they'd probably be married already. At the end of the ''Magazine/NintendoPower'' series based on ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'', Zelda tells Link that the link between them was so strong while she was in Ganon's clutches, but now Link is so distant and she is alone. She will never forget the time they were together in their dreams...
