As a dramatic trope, this can occasionally take the form of FirstGirlWins, when the character keeps finding unacceptable substitutes for TheOneThatGotAway. Sometimes the character has a type that just doesn't work, and the LastGirlWins breaks the pattern and lets him be happy. Sometimes it's comedy. Sometimes it's that the ''writer'' is the one with a type and it's AuthorAppeal.

** In ''Kur of Gor'', Tarl is imprisoned with a woman whom the Priet-Kings have selected as being a perfect match to his desires, and he to her; but he can't do anything about it because she is a free woman and his Codes forbid acting upon those desires. This, Tarl presumes, is intended as torture. Of course once she becomes a slave he is no longer forbidden from acting.
