* In ''Literature/HarryPotter'', [[spoiler:Snape was in love with Lily through their childhood and Hogwarts years. Lily refused to associate herself with him after he broke all the trust she had in him. Lily instead ended up with his archnemesis and rival, James Potter, whom had taken down his ego since their last encounter. They had a child named Harry, then they died and Harry grew up to become a student of Snape, who treats Harry like shit because his dad is James… and because he's still angry and in love with Lily, long after her death, as he demonstrated with his Patronus, causing [[TearJerker Dumbledore to tear up]].]]

** It's been implied that Albus Dumbledore never fully fell out of love with Gellert Grindelwald, even after the man more-or-less destroyed his family, and later became the worst Dark Wizard in history (at least until Voldemort showed up). While Dumbledore did oppose him, he avoided a personal confrontation until the body count became too high to ignore -- even then, his reasons for doing so were purely emotional, involving things from their past together. Then there's the fact that Dumbledore swore off romance after their friendship fell apart. [[spoiler:However, the biggest piece of evidence is when Harry suggests that the reason why Grindelwald refused to tell Voldemort the location of the Eleder Wand was to prevent him from breaking into Dumbledore's tomb, and Dumbledore is oddly comforted by that]].

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': Characters tend to hold on to one love for their whole lives, even if their object of affection can't or won't ever feel the same. One obvious case is Jiraiya, who kept his unrequited feelings for Tsunade from when they were teenagers until when they were old and died right before she implied that she was going to give him a chance. Another is Obito, whose crush Rin never liked him back and died when they were children, [[spoiler:prompting him to dedicate his entire life to getting back at the world that took her from him, his love never wavering]]. Even [[spoiler:Karin]] never stops loving [[spoiler:Sasuke]], but just decides [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy to let him be happy with another]]. The ''only'' two cases of someone moving on from a crush to be with someone else are Ino, whose feelings for Sasuke were never serious anyway, and Naruto, whose one-sided crush on Sakura [[ShipSinking ended after Chapter 469]] and was later explained in ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'' to be [[LovingAShadow more of a product of his rivalry with Sasuke and how he just wanted to beat out Sasuke at something for once than any actual romantic feelings]]--which was implied back in [[http://www.mangapanda.com/naruto/3/17 Chapter 3]].
