The second time around

Do you think it's possible to fall in love with the same person twice in a lifetime? Or do you believe everyone gets just one chance to make it or break it?

  • LOVE is a verb, therefore it is possible if you don't work for it. I am living breathing proof. You can fall IN and OUT of love your whole life with the same person. Beside people always change, adapt and cope to life in strange and different ways. It is trust and understanding that makes it work.

  • Всем привет! Мой ответ однозначно ДА! Я встречаюсь со своей девушкой уже почти три года, и ни для кого не секрет что начало наших отношений стало со взаимной симпатиии переросшей в любовь, затем где-то через 1.5 года я понял что влюбился в нее второй раз!

  • Знаю миллионы подтвержений такой возможности, но у меня не получалось ни разу. Кажется, я не из тех людей, что ходят по одному и тому же кругу дважды и более.

    Наоборот, когда встречаю людей, из-за которых когда-то страдала, мучилась в поисках их внимания, но не нашла, или нашла, но потеряла, появляется недоумение, ощущение собственной слепоты в прошлом. :)
  • I think, if you can forgive (and forget, possibly) the transgression the person committed unto you, it's possible. It's looking at a person, knowing their faults, and still being able to look past them. Maybe you'll love some of the things you liked about them before, maybe you'll gain a new appreciation of things you overlooked. When you see that person again for the first time, you'll be in different places in life than you were the last time you two were together, which may be the impetus to rekindling a relationship. I don't know. I'm not speaking from experience, but from possibility. So, yes, I do believe it is possible, although I've never experienced this in my lifetime. I've still pined for people, though, which is altogether different from what I described above.



  • I think it is. I fell in love with my ex once back my sophomore year and their freshman year. We dated for about a year and then we broke up. Slowly I find myself falling in love with them again, but it's different.. as friends, I'm falling in love. So I guess it's different "falling in love". But isn't "falling in love" all the same, whether it's friend love or relationship love? Love is love, correct?

  • love is a strange thing. yes, i believe that you can fall in love with the same person more than once. if you're in the right relationship, you fall in love over and over with them every day. sometimes multiple times in that day.. to be honest, the way i look at love, if you truely feel for that person, with all your heart and soul and you see them as the only physical/emotional/speritual thing you'll ever need, it's love. true love.. i know i've felt this. i'm not sure if it was the same for the person, but i would die happy if i could just be in his arms. honestly, i could fall in love with him again.. but it all depends on how or if he wants me back bad enough to fight for it.. love comes freely, but it's also earned..


  • I spent way too much time debating whether or not I wanted to answer this question. This is a bit too personal for me, close to my heart. Well, here goes...

    I believe that every relationship is different and each has its challenges. In the words of Tom Cruise's character in "Cocktail", "Everything ends badly, otherwise it wouldn't end." In my relationships, I have given second chances, sometimes more than that. However, I am realizing that a second chance is more than enough. Personally, I have learned that there is a lot of hurt if you keep letting the same person in. We all have the ability to change, but what we have fundamentally rooted within ourselves will ultimately remain the same.

    I am not interested in the pain that exists from tearing flesh and ripping stitches from old wounds over and again. Let them heal. Leave it alone. Go work your lines on someone else.

    "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me  you again!"

  • I do believe this is possible because to me anyway, Once you have fell IN love with someone and you've gone though so much with them You're always going to love them but you may not be IN love with them anymore. If you really were IN love with someone once upon a time you will always have some sort of feeling and some sort of sense of caring about them. Then again..that's just my opinion. 

  • I think that it depends on the guy. It's called a second chance. If you find out your internet won't work on your current computer, will that stop you from getting a new computer to surf the web? Okay, i have to admit that that was a stupid analogy. But the message is true. Everyone deserves a second chance. Especially at love.
