* "Haven't Seen You in a Long Time" by GreatBigSea details the narrator's feelings for a woman whom he has loved for years, but the timing was never right for them, and now he can only hope that she still remembers him, while he can't get her out of his head.

* 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]].]]

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' has plenty. King Robert vocally mourns Lyanna Stark [[TheLostLenore long after her death]], but he never [[LovingAShadow really knew her]]. His wife Cersei was in love with [[spoiler: Rhaegar Targaryen, whom Robert killed]], though the fact that her ArrangedMarriage to Robert is abusive and horribly unhappy for her doesn't help matters. Then there's Petyr Baelish, who has always claimed to love Catelyn Stark, [[spoiler: and he starts a massive war that tears the seven kingdoms apart, as his way of lashing out to the world when he lost her to Brandon Stark]]. And Catelyn's sister Lysa, who long loved the above mentioned Petyr.

* Creator/HarryChapin's "Taxi" has Harry encounter Sue; the two knew each other from "a long time ago." Sue went to pursue a career in the theater while Harry tried to become a pilot; neither succeeded. Instead, Sue is acting happy inside her handsome home, while Harry is "flying" in his taxi.
* Creator/ThomasDolby's "Europa And The Pirate Twins" recounts how Thomas and Europa started out as childhood friends, until war took her away. "We swore a vow that day / We'll be the pirate twins again, Europa." Europa grew to be a celebrity, while Thomas was shunted aside as a tosser. "Eyes were gone forever / As they drove her away."

Not to be confused with: AllLoveIsUnrequited, {{Asexuality}} (a character fitting this trope is sometimes mistaken for asexual), StalkerWithACrush (it ''can'' lead to this, but doesn't necessarily.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': Characters tend to hold on to one love for their whole lives, even if their. One obvious case is Jiraiya, who kept his unrequited feelings for Tsunade from when they were teenagers until when they were old [[spoiler:and died right before she was finally 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 cases of someone moving on from a crush to be with someone else are Ino, whose feelings for Sasuke were never serious anyway, and [[spoiler:Naruto]], whose crush on [[spoiler:Sakura]] was explained to be [[spoiler:more of a product of his rivalry with Sasuke than any real romantic feelings]].

** Also, [[OurGhostsAreDifferent Moaning Myrtle]] pops up in every other book to complain about how Harry never visits her. Then again, she's stuck as a thirteen(ish)-year-old girl forever, so it kind of fits.
