* In ''Manga/FullMoonOSagashite'', this becomes the case for Fuzuki and Seijurou. The two met in their teen years and loved each other, but because Fuzuki's best friend was [[LoveTriangle also in love with Seijurou]], thought the two had betrayed her and said friend [[spoiler: Moe Rikyou, aka ''Meroko'']] committed suicide, Fuzuki was too heart-broken and guilt-ridden to pursue a relationship with Seijurou after all. It's not until decades later that Seijurou sees Fuzuki again and the two are seen holding hands in the final chapter.
* An episode of ''Anime/SailorMoon Super S'' features a [[SugarAndIcePersonality snippy but secretly kind]] old woman named Mayako, who strikes an InterGenerationalFriendship with Chibi-Usa and Mamoru. It turns out that the reason why she looks so bitter is that she lost her old boyfriend twenty years ago, which made her a borderline BrokenBird. Said boyfriend, the famous SupremeChef Ichiro Ohno, returns into her life towards the end of the episode (after Mayako is saved from Hawk Eye by the Senshi) and apologies to her for the hurt he caused her, and they get together again and open a restaurant -- like they had sworn to do many years ago.

* Many residents of senior-care facilities meet new sweethearts at said facilities and even get married, having the wedding right in the facility.

* Many residents of senior-care facilities meet new sweethearts at said facilities and even get married, having the wedding right in the facility. On a less romantic note, it appears that venereal diseases run rampant at such facilities, as the residents have relationships and flings and assorted other, erm, encounters, and (since the women are all well past childbearing age) never seem to wear condoms.
