They say that ‘love is a many splendored thing,’ but it can also be a many stressful thing; which is why relationships sometimes end even when you know you're still in love with your partner. But who's to say that a breakup is the end of your story?
Let’s say it’s been years since you two talked and by pure luck, you run into each other again and the spark is still there. Would you consider trying again especially if the wounds from the past have already healed?
According to GMA News Online, a survey by pollster Social Weather Stations found that about 51 percent of Filipinos believe that love is sweeter the second time around. The survey, which was done last December 2014 also found “27 percent saying they have already fallen in love the second time around, and 49 percent saying they have a very happy love life.”
The survey also concluded that most believers are the ones who have experienced it firsthand.
It's important to note however, that every relationship is different, and while there are couples who prove that you can fall in love with the same person again, the success of your 'second try' will depend on your commitment and determination to make things work. And if ever you do decide to reach out to a former flame, just remember that a drunk text to an ex may not be the best way to rekindle your relationship. Good luck!
