A person is heartbroken cause for whatever reason, they lost someone they loved. Usually, a friend will try to comfort that person by saying they'll find someone else. In some cases, they're right and the heartbroken will find someone better. Other times, they will feel there is no replacing the one they lost.

Compare Replacement Goldfish and Second Love if they're successful in finding someone else.
