Here is a quote from tvtropes
"Many fans 'ship. These fans often do it all the time (context or no) especially in certain demographics. Producers, especially those who keep their finger on the pulse of the audience, not to mention their eye on the fan fora, know this. So, they decide to tease the fans with hints about possible romantic entanglements, and thereby build that emotional attachment between the show and the audience as much as they can. If the writers are particularly impish, they'll tease a relationship that either never comes up or takes a hard right just as it gets going. Like a sudden death. Sometimes, however, ship teases evolve out of the teasing stage."
Now this is the phrase i want to focus on"

I know i have constantly dropped novels and/or movies that had ships fail on me and i would lose interest in it but usually a ship doesn't bother me unless its built up for a long period of time and then ceases to exist. An example of this would be The Originals tv show which is the freshes thing on my mind, i spent over 20 hours getting invested into a certain couples romance just to have it fall flat and suffice to say i stopped watching it. I'm o'k with a ship tease but i am not ok with a prolonged ship tease that gets you emotionally invested just to sink.
How do you guys generally feel about this trope in novels or movies? Do you have any experience with ship teases, do you like them, do you hate them? or am i the only who is constantly angered by the wrong use of it.
Sorry about the grammer, english is not my native language.
