* Rudeus of ''LightNovel/MushokuTensei'' is devastated when [[spoiler:Eris]] [[NotStayingForBreakfast disappears after their first night together]], leaving a vaguely-worded note.

AliceAndBob have been growing closer and closer, possibly leading up to a RelationshipUpgrade...only there's a problem: [[WrongGuyFirst Alice's ex, Charlie]]. No, it's not that Alice is still in love with Charlie, it's that the fallout from her relationship with Charlie has left her with [[BrokenBird serious emotional baggage]] that must be worked out before [[SecondLove any new relationship]] can succeed. Can also happen when Charlie is dead and Alice still has grief issues to work out. Will often culminate in an EpiphanyTherapy session between Alice and Bob, where Alice spills all her baggage.

* ''Manga/FruitsBasket'' - Hatori's past relationship with Kana has this effect on him, and oddly enough, somewhat on Mayuko, his new flame, as well; she was Kana's best friend and clearly a ShipperOnDeck, even though [[MatchmakerCrush she was in love with Hatori the whole time]], and thus she feels that she'd be betraying Kana if she got together with him.
* Manga/InuYasha's past relationship with Kikyo causes this between him and [[ReincarnationRomance Kagome]]...at least early on. When Kikyo is [[CameBackWrong resurrected]] it becomes a whole new [[LoveTriangle can of worms]]. [[spoiler: Inuyasha and Kagome eventually get together only after Kikyo wants Inuyasha to live on after she is able to die peacefully and she acknowledges Kagome as her successor.]] A large portion of the series is devoted to Kagome coming to terms with Inuyasha never being able to get over Kikyo and her own jealousy towards their unbreakable bond. Apart from Inuyasha and Kikyo being deeply in love, it doesn't help that they were almost married but tricked into betraying each other and Kikyo lived an incredibly tragic life (''and'' afterlife).

* On ''ChoujinSentaiJetman'', Ryu was so broken up over losing Rie, that he kept burying himself in his work as a Jetman, ignoring Kaori's advances, when Rie was revealed to be brainwashed into becoming Maria, it got way worse.

* In PostMULifeScream, Terry Perry has this problem. As it turns out, [[spoiler: he was head over heels for an AlphaBitch in high school who ultimately wasn't content with just breaking his heart but gleefully shredded not only his social life but his brother's as well so thoroughly the twins had to change school.]] Needless to say, he's slow to warm up to girls in general and romance isn't remotely on his radar.

* Kyoko's dead husband Soichirou on ''Manga/MaisonIkkoku''. Comparisons to Godai happen all the time. And as many readers fail to understand, [[spoiler: when Godai and Kyoko ''do'' get together, it's not ''just'' because Godai [[CharacterDevelopment has matured from a boy to a man]], but because Kyoko has worked through her baggage with Soichiro enough to be able to fully pursue a relationship with someone else.]] Also, a big point of Godai's maturation is [[spoiler: recognizing this trope; Kyoko may be over Soichiro enough to be able to get with Godai, but '''she'll never fully be over Soihirou''', and he'll have to accept that if he wants to be with her.]]
