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.

    Title potentially sounds like a stock phrase - and even if you insisted it isn't, it can be confused with... plenty of fishes in the sea. :P

    What about "Find Another Girl"Epiphany?

    Find Another Love Interest possibly rather than Find Another Girl, keep things gender neutral.

    ^^ Too long and awkward. Absurdly Youthful Mother once got around it by having a father in the picture to show it's gender neutral. though then again, that one could have easily been named Absurdly Youthful Parent... EDIT: wait, IT IS. stupid redirect system....

    Find Another Lover is less awkward but still somehow sounds weird to me.

    Replace "Find" with "Finding" and I'm ok with the rest.

    • The idiom "There's plenty of fish in the sea." is meant to be interpreted as this trope (although jokes about taking it at face value are far more common in this day and age).

    A joke from Dave Allen At Large. This isn't quite the way he told it though:
    Ryan's wife had recently died and she was being buried. Ryan was sobbing and was being consoled by his friends.
    "Don't worry Ryan, in two or three months you may meet a beautiful lady who will make you happy"
    "I know, I know," says Ryan, "But what am I gonna do tonight?"
