Unlike other tropes having to do with forms of address, this trope is always used to foreshadow romance between the man and the woman. It's a way for the woman to let the man know she's single, or at least unmarried.

It's a simple exchange but is almost the same in all the works it appears in.

The only occurrence I can think of off the top of my head is one in Drillbit Taylor.
