你可以用there are plenty more fish in the sea这个表达来描述可供选择的人或事还有很多，也就是我们常说的 “天涯何处无芳草”。这个表达常被用在谈论婚姻或感情关系破裂的语境中。
- Mary was not a good wife. Don't cry over her. There are plenty more fish in the sea.
- Stop flirting with my boyfriend and find someone else! There are plenty more fish in the sea.
值得注意的是，短语fish for compliments的意思是故意要别人说赞扬话，沽名钓誉。
- Ann: I'm not very good with children.
Sue: No, don't be silly. You are a great babysitter.
Tony: She knows that. People in the neighbourhood are always asking her to take care of their kids. She is just fishing for compliments.
