I am in need of a very specific type of catharsis. Media suggestions, please.

I am looking for songs, movies, books, visual art, poetry, basically anything, in which the following situation is described:
Two people love each other a great deal, but cannot be together, NOT because of any external circumstance, but because ONE of them cannot fully commit/is not ready to commit due to internal issues (e.g. timing, or a fear of commitment, sexual issues, being insane, or something else). Bonus points for melodrama and heartbreak, and extra bonus points if the half of the couple that deems the couple unable to be together also, due to internal issues, wants to spend time playing the field. I can't believe I just said "playing the field," but here we are, metafilter. Here we are.
I know this is really specific, but there has to be something, right?
