* 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.

* 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.]]

** 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]].

* Throughout ''Anime/YuriOnIce'' many characters perceive [[LivingLegend Victor Nikiforov]] as a massive player: he is a notorious flirt in front of the cameras, Minako comments upon the millions of women fawning over him, and his initial interactions with his protege Yuuri come across as [[TheTease merely casually flirtatious and intended to provoke a response]]. While the actual nature of Victor's love life is never explicitly stated (aside from Yuuri cutting him off before he can talk about his previous lovers), it is made clear that [[spoiler: he had devoted so much of his time to his career that he neglected his personal life for ''at least twenty years'', leaving him completely isolated, bereft of inspiration, and slipping into depression. Taking that into account, his flirtatious persona is likely [[StepfordSmiler part of an act that he has cultivated in order to keep up appearances while he's in the spotlight]]. Victor's romantic pursuit of Yuuri, on the other hand, has been entirely genuine and committed from the very beginning, and he takes the strides that their relationship makes - both as romantic partners and as a coach and athlete team - very seriously.]]

The second type is the Chaste Flirt. This guy just likes girls, and knows how to make them smile without any intention of marking notches on his bedpost. He lacks the desperation of AManIsNotAVirgin. He's very socially skilled, but may not have much experience beyond the "chat-up" stage. Perhaps he flirts deliberately ''because'' he's virginal/celibate, and has found that flirting means that people assume you have a love life, and stop asking embarrassing questions. Expect TheReveal to be made to his official girlfriend, when she starts worrying about the number of partners he's had before her. Sometimes, the audience is in on the secret, making the other character's accusations and remarks [[DramaticIrony humourous or bittersweet]] in effect.

* This is the entire premise of ''Film/EasyA'', where a teenage girl only ''claims'' to have slept with different boys in return for favors so that they can [[AManIsNotAVirgin increase their sex appeal]]. She only realizes how far this backfired when she becomes an outcast at the school and a guy who mistook her for an actual hooker almost date rapes her.
