* If someone works up the courage to ask someone for the very first time (usually in high school) and they get rejected, it is not at all unusual for it to be ''years'' before they manage to ask anyone out again, the rejection hurts ''that'' bad. One counselor told a story of a man (good looking, physically fit, and successful) who'd come to her out of sheer desperation, terrified that he was going to spend the rest of his life alone because he just couldn't work up the nerve to ask a woman out. The counselor found out it all stemmed from when he was sixteen years old, asked a girl out and got rejected. The man's age when he finally came to her? ''Twenty-nine.''

* ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'' has the protagonist Issei unable to even think that the girls in his harem love him at all despite them doing all sorts of intimate things in front of him, short of actual sex, because he still has the scars from his ex-girlfriend. Specifically, he ''got killed by his first girlfriend'' because said girlfriend was ''bored of him''.
** That's more than a little misleading. She killed him because he was a potential threat. The "bored of him" bit was just her being a bitch.

* ''TalesOfTheAbyss'': You'd think that being smothered by a harem of busty ladies when he was five would turn [[spoiler:Guy Cecil]] into a perverted groper. Unfortunately, that's not as sexy as it sounds when all the women are DEAD from being used as meatshields and the recipient of all these stiffening boobs is currently suffocating to death underneath two hundred pounds of rotting flesh. And that is why [[spoiler:Guy Cecil]] cannot touch women without having a panic attack.

AnchoredShip. Compare TheMourningAfter, if the ending of the relationship was particularly traumatic.

* ''Literature/TrappedOnDraconica'': Rana's isolation seems from a bad experience with her FirstLove. Specfically, [[spoiler: Daniar accidentally stole her crush, Tyrone. In truth, Zarracka killed him because she failed to steal him from Daniar.]]
* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', this is part of the reason that Karrin Murphy doesn't want to get together with main character Harry Dresden. She's been divorced twice (which is a big deal in an Irish-Catholic family like her's), and to make matters even MORE awkward, her second husband (who divorced her because he wanted a family, whereas Murphy didn't because she wanted to keep working as a police officer) later ended up marrying her little sister. As a result, she doesn't want a serious relationship with anyone, including Harry (and Harry doesn't want a casual one since he has abandonment issues, due to losing both his parents at a young age and not having a family for most of his life).

* In ''Literature/{{Persuasion}}'', Captain Wentworth can't get over an old heartbreak, but it complicates his relationship with the ''same woman''. After Anne Elliot broke their engagement, he spent eight years at sea in the Napoleonic Wars and winds up in her social circle by accident. His sister and brother-in-law are sure he's looking for a wife because he makes a lot of noise about wanting a woman of firm character and flirts with the Musgrove sisters, but in truth he's being passive-aggressive at Anne--he's still in love with her. (Fortunately for them both, she still loves him, and he gets over himself enough to rectify thing.)

* ''FanFic/{{Sehnsucht}}'': [[spoiler:The only person Cervello Cynthia ever (romantically) loved was Daemon Spade, who was in love with her adoptive sister. Cynthia, out of respect for their relationship, never confessed her feelings, though it's implied that Daemon was aware of them and, to some extent, returned them. [[CynicismCatalyst Then Elena died]]. Daemon ''never'' got over it, and subsquently followed through with his canon betrayal, and in spite of everything, Cynthia loved him too much to punish him for it. The memories of this tragic relationship still haunt her reincarnation Reiki Noriko, which was only compounded by Mukuro's similarities to Daemon and Daemon's own appearance. As a result, she's shown little to no interest in romance in her second life]].
