Other questions about "Flame"

Q: Originally I was going to fix the flame of Windows of my room today. But it was rainy so ended up canceling and was postponed the other day. does this sound natural?

"‎Originally I was going to fix the frame of my Window in my room today. But it was rainy so ended up canceling and postponed it to another day.

Q: I didn't have a flame as a high school student. does this sound natural?
A: In this sense "flame" is used most in the phrase "old flame". However, it would be easily understood on its own, as in your sentence.

In my current dictionary "flame" on its own is not given as meaning "lover" but it would come under the metaphorical use (as in burning passion, etc.).

("Old flame" is given as meaning "ex-lover" obviously.)

So for me "flame" is not quite as specific as "old flame". For example, I think it could include having a crush on somebody, as the metaphorical use is broader.

That's my feeling.
