    Looking a word for the person who couldn't get his love

    Hi,

    Is there a unique word for the person who couldn't get his (first) love or whose heart is broken in love?

    Fore example, "logophile" which means "a lover of words". Can I have such a word for the person mentioned above?

    The suffix -phile indicates "lover of" so unless the person you're talking about loves having his/her heart broken, there certainly wouldn't be a -phile word for him/her.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The closest term I can think of is 'unrequited love', but that's not restricted to one's first love.

    Perhaps philophobia - the fear of love? I doubt you'd find that word used much in everyday language. It's one of those more theoretical coined words.
