The story just about always had a happy ending. In the end, he does come back. In the same book, Rilla Blythe waits for her childhood sweetheart to come back. It's a striking example because of her young age: Gaspode the talking dog is named so he says after the famous Gaspode, who kept sitting at his owner's grave and howling until he died. As Gaspode said, any dog would do that if his tail was caught under the damn headstone.
Also parodied in Reaper Man, where Miss Flitworth tells Bill Door that after the death of her fiance, she'd thought to herself "What life expects me to do now is moon around the place in the wedding dress for years and go completely doolally", and just to spite narrative conventionshe instead buckled down and got on with her life. Intriguingly, when she dies near the end, Death brings her to where her fiance died so they can move on together. Then, "getting on with her life" had not included "finding someone else.
The Discworld novel Eric mocks the tale of Argos, saying what killed the dog was holding his master's slippers in his mouth for twenty years nonstop. Presented as pathetic, because she has deluded herself about Kurtz to the point that she's barely functional as an independent person.
Even after Kurtz is dead, she begs to know his last words, "to live by," implying that she intends to stay in mourning for the rest of her life. Herman Melville apparently once wrote a manuscript that told the story of a woman who waited years for the return of her sailor husband after he disappeared at sea. Meanwhile, he'd gone off and started another family elsewhere.
The manuscript was never published and is now lost, but records of it exist in Melville's letters to Nathaniel Hawthorne. This is a major plot point in The Time Traveler's Wife.

Marygay, on the other hand, leaves a note for him to find if he survives, assuring him that she will wait forever, tells him where she's going, and buys a ship which spends the next two hundred years going backwards and forwards at near-lightspeed, stopping every five years, during which time she has aged about a month Now that's an optimistic lady!

Unfortunately, Horn is in exile from the court of his true love because of a false accusationand Beves and Guy are both seeking to win renown so that the princess he is in love with will find him worthy, despite his low birth.
All of them wriggle out of the marriage and in due time win their first loves. Persuasion by Jane Austen.
Mildly subverted in that Anne was persuaded to break up the engagement. Nevertheless she waits for him, and gives an impassioned speech pointing out that women will love longer than men when all hope is gone. The hero overhears and does come back. Fortunately for him, his body was sold to the Mad Scientist and he got better.
His love, Kara, fled as soon as her father was assassinated, and returned to be reunited with him. In Jan Guillou's Knight Templar series Cecilia patiently waits for Arn for more than twenty years while he's off making penance as a knight templar. Slightly subverted since she too has been sentenced to make penance and spends twenty years at a convent, but it kicks in for real once she's done her time and has to wait to see if he will ever return home.
Worked out pretty easily and straightforwardly in The Death of the Vazir Mukhtar also combined with Jail Bait Waitat least presumably.

She finally tracks down his whereabouts She vows that she will exact horrible, horrible Revenge on him, starting with how she handles the matter of the pregnancy, and this drives the remainder of the novel. Played heartbreakingly straight in the Dragonlance short story "Love and Ale" with the in-universe poem "The Song of Elen Waiting" in which the eponymous singer laments that her love went off to war, but she still waits for him as her friends grow up and fall in love and have children and grow old while she waits for her love until she dies old and alone.

A count seduces a farm girl named Margarita right before going to war, hiding his social standing to her and giving her a ring as a proof of love and future marriage When he returns, he's confronted by a local singer who sings a song about a girl who was first seduced by a powerful man and then killed by her irate older brother, and whose ringed hand simply can't be buried under Earth since he promised to marry her before leaving.

The Count accepts to "marry" Margarita's hand to fulfill the promise, and once this is done her hand quietly slides under Earth so she can rest in peace. She weds an older knight at the request of her parents, then returns to Sarum after her husband dies in battle, to discover that Peter although he's had girlfriends has remained unmarried for twenty years, unable to feel real affection for any woman but her.
Unusual in that it's the male partner who'd been waiting. In Warrior Catsthough it's just best friends and not a romantic example, Firestar and Graystripe do this. In the Super Edition Firestar's Quest, Firestar goes away on a quest that leads him far out of the forest, leaving the Clan in Graystripe's care.
Graystripe promises "I'll wait for you as long as it takes. In the second series, when Graystripe is captured by Twolegs and the Clans leave the forest for good to find a new home, Firestar refuses to give up hope that Graystripe will return, leaving the deputy position open, even though most of the cats believe that Graystripe is dead.
He even cites Graystripe's waiting for him as a reason why he should continue to wait. Eventually, several moons later, pressure from many other cats and the need for a deputy forces him to accept that Graystripe probably won't come back, and he appoints Brambleclaw as a deputy. Over half a year later, Graystripe finally finds his way to the Clan. Silverstream's spirit says this word from word to GraystripeinThe Last Hope.

Her facial features and hairstyle bear a strong resemblance to her mother and her brother. She wears her waitress or high school uniform for work and school respectively, whereas her casual clothes are tomboyish streetwear. Her waitress uniform consists of a white shirt rolled up to her elbows, a black vest, a red tie, and a black skirt down to her lower thighs. On top of that skirt, she also wears a brown skirt that reaches her upper thighs. She also wears tight red leggings. As "Rabbit", she wears a long coat jacket, rabbit maskand a blonde, or sometimes a pink, wig to conceal her identity.
After the Aogiri arc, her hair reaches shoulder length, but her signature bangs remain the same. As a child she wore dresses, and bunny hair-clip on the left side of her bangs, and her hairstyle was much the same. It revealed that everything that happened before still matters, giving meaning to the rest of the episode.
It was nice to see Sasaki given a more varied personality in this episode, too. He struck a complex balance between the jarring happy-go-lucky side seen in the premiere and the despairing nature of the former Kaneki. From his conversation with Arima to the alarming discussions regarding him that Akira has, he comes off in the second episode as a genuinely layered and distraught protagonist. The episode is all the better for dedicating the appropriate time and care to focus on the chaos ensuing inside his mind.
Learning what exactly distinguishes a Quinx member from a normal ghoul during the scene with Urie and the doctor gave some crucial exposition that was missing from previous seasons. The more lighthearted tone in the first episode was better incorporated here with the introduction of the Umaru-like Saiko who shirks her duties in favor of playing video games and eating entire hams.
The true highlight of this amazing episode was the final scene with Sasaki and Touka.
