* In the ''Literature/WheelOfTime'' series, Rand is in love with three women (who all love him) [[spoiler:and has a batshit crazy Forsaken named Lanfear/Cyndane pining for him]], Perrin is married and is nevertheless relentlessly pursued by [[spoiler:Berelain sur Paendrag]], and Mat is a flirt and playboy [[spoiler:and continues his flirting ways despite being married to Seanchan Empress Fortuona]]... and ''each one'' frequently muses that the other two understand women much better than they do. Of the three, only Perrin is right. Special emphasis on Mat, who is considered an irredeemable lech and certainly loves a dance and a bit of canoodling with a willing woman, but who ''never'' presses his attentions on anyone who's not interested and whose final confirmed partner count as of the final book is [[spoiler:two. Only one of which was [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale consensual on his end]].]]

* Neal Caffrey in {{White Collar}} is a prime example. He's very handsome and flirts with everything that moves, but never even seems to try to hook up with anyone. Peter Burke, the FBI agent he works with, keeps assuming that Caffrey gets loads of tail, but we see no evidence on the show that this is true. This is probably due his missing partner-in-crime Kate being his One True Love.

* Has anyone actually ever ''seen'' any evidence of [[Series/{{Friends}} Joey]] having a one night stand? Because he only seemed to have girlfriends who he actually enjoyed spending time with, despite the show constantly professing him to be so ridiculously talented at seduction, with the implication of hundreds of little flings ala [[TwoAndAHalfMen Charlie Harper]].

* Galko from PleaseTellMeGalko is a stereotypical "Gal", and everyone's convinced she's got an incredibly hot love life and possibly also does EnjouKousai on the side, but the truth is that she's so pure she can't even talk about kissing without turning beet red.

* In the light novel series ''Omae o Otaku ni Shiteyaru Kara Ore o Riajuu ni Shitekure'', the main heroine has a real reputation around school, with some saying she's had several boyfriends simultaneously, but she's actually a borderline androphobe with absolutely no experience with men.

* The second story in the collection ''Salad Days'' has a guy getting close to a girl who kisses him on the train. His friends almost immediately start warning him to stay away from her because she's got a huge reputation as a really loose girl. When he tries to be just friends and lets his concern slip she's crushed, and her best friend chews him out for believing rumors spread by a jealous AlphaBitch.

* Jillian Holtzmann from ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'' is something of a meta-version of this trope. In the film itself, she's portrayed as very confidently flirtatious [[AmbiguouslyGay towards her fellow Ghostbusters]] but the viewer never really learns a lot about her love-life or how active it really is. She's something of an EnsembleDarkHorse and has acquired a large fan-base, however, many of whom are fond of depicting her in fan-fiction as [[ReallyGetsAround having slept her way through]] [[LesYay most of the female population of New York City.]] [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer Including the straight women.]]

* ''Anime/YuriOnIce'' has Victor Nikiforov.

Later episodes imply that his fame as a playboy is [[spoiler:really just a public persona.

** The show uses this trope to set up the story's major twist. Both the viewers and Yuri are initially led to believe that Victor's highly affectionate overtures to Yuri are merely part of his "player" nature: casually flirtatious and intended to provoke a response from his easily-flustered student. As it turns out, [[spoiler:Victor's not teasing an easy target, he's flirting with a man he wants a committed relationship with -- and [[ForgottenFirstMeeting he had grounds to believe]] that Yuri would be responsive to the direct approach]].
