Second Love, also known as Second Chance at Love or Learning to Love Again, is a romantic trope popular in both fanon and in canon. It involves a character finding love with another after losing their previous partner or having their last relationship end in heartbreak. This experience may have left them jaded or wary, perhaps to the extent they swore off love entirely or resigned themselves to singlehood, and thus their newfound romance may be an example of serendpity and healing through the power of love.
If the second love occurs soon after the heartbreak, it may also be an example of a rebound romance.
