** ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} and Brainiac 5 first met in 1961. Querl fell for Kara at first sight and she liked him back, but she couldn't stay in the 31st century permanently.

Unfortunately, Kara died in the ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteCrisis'' one year later.

** Saturn Girl and Lightning Lad also spent many years pursuing and dodging each other before getting married.



* ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'': Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy do this straight starting from her first appearance. They broke up once, but would've, [[spoiler:if not for the fact that she had an affair with Norman Osborn, had his children, pissed the Goblin right off and died for her trouble, though she was brought back through cloning and dumped Peter when it was strongly implied that he had always been in love with Mary Jane even when he'd been dating Gwen (MJ made her debut BEFORE Gwen in the comics as the "blind date" foil for Betty Brant and Liz Allen), but because of Gwen's emotional problems, coupled with a promise to look after her to the dying George Stacy, he stuck with her out of principle.]].
** Which seems like an attempt to settle the decades-long feud over whether Peter loves Mary Jane or not.
* ''ComicBook/XMen'': Rogue and Gambit have been in a constant state of ‘on-and-off’ ever since Gambit first joined the X-Men, to the extent that it's practically a permanent sub-plot. While they both have declared love and devotion for one another on multiple occasions, the relationship never lasts too long before something happens and they end up separating again, only to reconcile at a later stage. This is partially due to the strain on the relationship caused by Rogue’s mutation, meaning the pair can never make physical contact, but also both partners carry some serious emotional baggage which surfaces every so often, sometimes leading to a break-up, whilst other times bringing the pair together.

* ''ComicBook/XMen'': ''ComicBook/XMen'':
** Since 1963, Scott Summers "ComicBook/{{Cyclops}}" and ComicBook/JeanGrey "Marvel Girl/Phoenix" live in a constant cycle where they're unsure whether a relationship is a good idea or they should stay just friends, then they get together and are happy for a while, then one of them dies temporarily or something makes them break up, and the cycle begins anew. In ''ComicBook/AllNewXMen'', their time-displaced teenager counterparts (nicknamed Tyke and Jeen by fans) are stuck in the "unresolved sexual tension" phase due to this.

* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': Matt Murdock and Karen Page. Karen spends all of the first season fawning over two different versions of Matt, the lawyer and the Devil of Hell's Kitchen, not knowing they're one and the same, while Matt in turn flirts with Karen constantly. The first episode is pretty heavy handed on the romantic tropes with Matt and Karen. Then Claire Temple is introduced the second episode, and Karen takes a backseat romantically. In season 2, they finally enter into a relationship and seal it with a [[RomanticRain kiss in the rain]]. They do go on one date, but then Elektra shows up and again Karen takes a backseat as he spends all his time dealing with Elektra's problems, resulting in Matt faltering in contributing to Frank Castle's trial, coupled with [[MistakenForCheating Karen stumbling upon a wounded Elektra resting in Matt's bed]]. After Elektra dies, Matt and Karen do get closer again after he reveals his secret to her in the closing minutes of season 2. By the start of ''Series/TheDefenders2017'', Matt and Karen are on good-enough speaking terms that Karen can't help but invite Matt out to lunch to get a comment on his latest case. The {{UST}} is still apparent later on when Matt grabs Karen from the ''Bulletin'' so he can place her in protective custody until the Hand are defeated. It seems that things have sailed when Matt is seemingly killed in the destruction of the Hand's base at Midland Circle, but Karen fervently insists that her gut says maybe Matt made it out, and it's then revealed that Matt indeed did survive, with ''The Defenders'' ultimately having set Matt and Karen up to get back together and much more strongly for season 3 of ''Daredevil''.
