    Hi,

    Is ''He's a seeker of his lost love'' correct?

    It's correct, but it isn't very natural.

    Re: seeker of lost love

    Can I use the word ''suitor'' in place of ''seeker''?

    No — that has a different meaning.

    Which one is correct to be used?

    ''lost-love seeker'' or ''lost-love-seeker''

    Re: seeker of lost love

    It really depends on what you're trying to say.
    Does it mean, "He is looking for a love that he has lost"? Is "his love" a feeling for someone, or a person?

    Re: seeker of lost love

    I still don't understand whether 'his love' refers to a feeling or a person.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: seeker of lost love

    Well, "the one that he lost" seems to me to be a person.
