* ''Series/TheFlash'': This exact situation is why Joe West refused to give Eddie Thawne his blessing when he asked for permission to ask Iris West to marry him. Joe knew she was really in love with best friend Barry Allen, and knew that if she married Eddie, she would eventually realize she married the wrong guy. Eddie himself contemplated this and it factored in his decision to break up with Iris. Iris herself, however, doesn't care if the one she's meant to be with is Barry, as, at the time, she only had eyes for Eddie. Ultimately, all of this is rendered moot when Eddie commits a HeroicSuicide in the Season 1 finale to stop Season 1 BigBad and his descendant, Eobard Thawne.

** Ann goes through several wrong guys before she found happiness. She began the show dating Andy, and then broke up with him to go out with Mark, who had become a LadykillerInLove with her. By the end of the second season, he was even set to propose to her before she dumped him, and Ann's reasoning for that was that while Mark was successful and mature, he [[TheGenericGuy just wasn't quite interesting enough]]. She later dates [ThePollyanna Chris]], but when that fell through, she began [[ReallyGetsAround going out with a revolving door of paramours]], and even briefly went out with [[CasanovaWannabe Tom]] for a period of time. Eventually, [[RelationshipRevolvingDoor after several ups and downs]], Ann [[spoiler:gets back together with Chris]].
