Dating coworkers good idea
Could you imagine what you would want to do if that needy guy was texting you right now? A common trope in romantic comedies is the humorous misunderstanding, or the Not What It Looks Like. The girl sees the guy's old crush/ex-girlfriend/other person who's previously expressed a romantic interest in him (or vice versa) go into his apartment/a hotel room/etc., and stay for a suspicious length of time.In most of these situations, the other woman is a relative, "proving" to the girl that nothing untoward was happening.This can also apply to non-romantic situations, such as one person thinking another person has committed (or is planning to commit) some heinous act, or misinterpreting a harmless situation into something scandalous.
like they’re entitled to them and their partner is cruelly withholding it.The scales even out, the status quo (i.e., UST) is restored, and the fans tear their hair out and scream at the writers for some progress, dammit!Often the other woman will catch on to what's happened after a while and tell the girl what really went on, clearing the way for a slide toward "they will" again.See Innocent Innuendo for a more sexual-related variant of this trope, and Abuse Mistake for a more violent variant.If the whole thing could be cleared up by one simple statement that nobody ever thinks to say, it's probably an Idiot Plot.
