Someone just deleted this example:
without providing an edit reason, what does everyone think?
I added the example in the first place knowing that it might be seen as contradictory with another trope I added, Distracted by the Sexy.
My thinking (and perhaps some of these reasons could be added to the entry to make it more clear) is that while Daly is enacting romantic relations with simulated crushes, it's not sexual, and when Nanette tries to distract him with sexy swimming, he's actually very hesitant to join in. Furthermore if his feelings were sexual, and not based more in a desire for the Star Fleet archetype for love, he could be pursuing these women further in the real life workplace, like Walton does.
I also see evidence in how Lowry comforts Nanette that the Once an Episode saviour kiss Captain Daly gets from his female crew is strictly closed-mouth.

How well does it match the trope?
