->''Almost five years [he had pined for her]! There must have been moments even that afternoon when Daisy tumbled short of his dreams--not through her own fault but because of the colossal vitality of his illusion. It had gone beyond her, beyond everything. He had thrown himself into it with a creative passion, adding to it all the time, decking it out with every bright feather that drifted his way. No amount of fire or freshness can challenge what a man will store up in his ghostly heart.''

* Literature/{{Lolita}} arguably. Consider for a second that the origins of Humbert Humbert's obsession with Lolita is explained by him in the very first pages. He says the it was his unconsummated relationship with Annabel that caused him to be attracted to "nymphets". So he essentially loves Lolita because [[YouRemindMeOfX she reminds him of Annabel]].
** Humbert also says that Lolita eventually replaced Annabel in this role; however while he continues to wax lyrical over his idealised "Lolita", in reality he's in a sordid sexual relationship maintained through threats and bribery, with a [[BreakTheCutie miserable, sullen teenager]] whose [[CorruptTheCutie innocence he has thoroughly destroyed]].

** ''OutboundFlight'' has [[WideEyedIdealist Maris]], who falls for the idealistic image she has of Commander Thrawn. Thrawn... he's not exactly a villain [[StartOfDarkness yet]], but he's not quite as nice as she imagines. He's aware of this and keeps some distance from her, but also does not disillusion her when they part.

* In K.A. Knaak's ''Dragonrealm'', Gwendolyn originally falls for Cabe Bedlam because of his similarities with his grandfather Nathan, who was once her lover; but later she falls for all those peculiarities that make Cabe himself.
* In ''GoneWithTheWind'' Scarlett finally realises--too late--that her supposed true love for Ashley is "only a sort of dream I had when I was a little girl".
* In one {{Nightside}} novel a reporter falls for John and tries to convince him to leave Suzie for her, stating that Suzie's violence is keeping him from being the hero the reporter knows he really is. John gently tells her that she's only in love with an image she's created in her mind and that he and Suzie belong together because they are both [[AntiHero monsters]].

Added DiffLines:

* In third chapter of ''Anime/FiveCentimetersPerSecond'', Takaki is no longer in love with Akari herself, but rather with the idea of Akari. All the things he is longing for are not physical but abstract things that he cannot grasp, which is why he finds it so difficult to find any way to resolve his longing. He's made efforts to move on, as evidenced by his relationship with his new girlfriend Risa, but he's as distant with her as he is with everyone else.

** Etna's [[ReliableTraitor contradictory relationship]] with Laharl is the result of this: she [[PrecociousCrush adored his father]], but ''hated'' his mother. She admits in her diary that when Laharl came along, she had no idea whether to love him or hate him because of it.
