* Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass on ''Series/GossipGirl'' had a "will they/won't they" plot for a season and a half. The whole thing ''started'' with them having sex, then they were friends-with-benefits, they she ditched him and went back to his best friend. Cue half a season of will/won't that ended in the season one finally where they get together - and the episode ends with him standing her up for their trip to Europe. Season two had them in a constant struggle over pride and power, starting with who should say "I love you" to the other first. After a while Chuck pointed out they both know they love each other, but can't say it because they don't know if they can make it work as a couple at this point. A few episodes later they take the will/won't in a new direction when Blair tells Chuck she loves him, only to be blown off and mocked for it ([[spoiler:his father had just died and he was too self-destructive to accept her love]]). The rest of the season then consists of Blair trying to move on and Chuck getting in the way, loving her deeply but not believing he can make her happy. The season two finally has her once again declaring her consuming love for him only to be rejected once more. He then [[spoiler:returns in the last two minutes, finally telling her he loves her too, and all the hurt they've caused each other is forgiven and forgotten]]. Interestingly enough what kept these two apart was more about their own insecurities than about actual hurtful things they did to one another. For example when he learns that she [[spoiler:slept with his uncle, whom Chuck loathes]] he was angry but it wasn't an obstacle between them as a couple.
** As of season three they are now together, happy and aware that they belong together.
*** [[spoiler: It didn't last and we're back to square one.]]
*** [[spoiler: They married at the series finale and are happy with a kid.]]
** Blair and Dan as part of the LoveDodecahedron.

Cue half a season of will/won't that ended in the season one finally plot, where they get together - and even being broken up was just to setup the episode ends with him standing her up for next part of their trip to Europe.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/KamenRiderStronger'', both Jou Shigeru (AKA Kamen Rider Stronger) and Misaki Yuriko (AKA Electric Human Tackle) share an attraction. It doesn't go anywhere due to them primarily focusing on their battle with the evil organisation [[ObviouslyEvil Black Satan]], which turned them both into cyborgs.
** They do eventually open up to each other and Yuriko mentions hoping to travel the world with Shigeru once Black Satan is beaten. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, by that point she's been fatally poisoned and dies soon after destroying a particularly powerful monster using a suicide attack.]]

* ''Series/{{Revenge}}'': Jack Porter and Emily Thorne/the real Amanda Clarke. They were ChildhoodFriends, and decades later are shown to still have feelings for one another -- hell, without even knowing she was the real Amanda, Jack still managed to fall in love with Emily. In spite of this, they never have an explicit romantic relationship for the entire run of the show. Emily continually refused to get involved with him because she wanted him out of harm's way while she waged a secret war with the Graysons, including forwarding a relationship with HoneyTrap victim Daniel Grayson. Jack, meanwhile, was sidetracked with other problems involving his bar, his boat, and his brother. Both also had numerous RomanticFalseLeads, including Amanda Clarke/the real Emily Thorne, who, at one point, even ended up marrying Jack and bearing his child. [[spoiler:It's only after every other love interest is either dead or otherwise incapacitated do they even entertain the idea of becoming something more. TheyDo in the series finale, marrying six months later and sailing off into the sunset]].
