I've alwaysheard that it is but i'm not really sure if a relationship will work the second time especially if you and your partner ended up with a really bad situation.

on my part, it definitely did work and it is much sweeter the second time around. It is when you lose someone that you realize his value and you long to have it back. At those times when you were apart, both of you had the time to think over what happened to your love and then you know what you should have and should have not done. That is the time when you come to your senses and say "i should have been like this, not like that". So if the two of you gets the chance to make it up with each other, you would be more mature and careful because you already know what could break your love.

You are very right my friend but what if the other end does not respond to you well even sufficient effort from your side.I tell You I have fallen in Internet love with one here last feb , She at first responded very well and Then suddenly stopped talking to me and letter told me she was in trouble when I sent her an email. Now she is stopped even replying my mails.What else I do to revive my relationship. so I left her In gods hands and decided to move on. If She has no Interest in me why should I worry for her.

Yeah same goes with me, there are instances that the opposite person doesn't really feel the same and they just disregard a lot of things even if you showed them that you've already changed for the better, and sometimes they no longer want to take another chance for the relationship cause they are scared that same things will happen again. It comes from an experience of mine that is why I keep wondering if it will really work if you give it a 2nd shot.

I don't know if there are really relationships that end up great. In the end always someone is hurt no matter if they show it or not. Even if you both decide it's the best to quite many still feel a loser because it did not work. Relationships (no matter what kind of) are there and also necessary. it's the only way to find out who we are, what our likes and dislikes are, how much we are able to sacrifice without losing ourselves or to give up or give in. There is no reason not to have a second love if you had a broken relationship. Esp. not if you learned from it and know yourself better and make different choices.

I agree with what you said that someone will get hurt no matter if they show it or not, cause even if you two decided to break up, even if no bad issues happened and it comes with mutual decision, one of the opposite person will feel hurt, one because they care for the person, 2 is that they love them and it's like they are going to lose a piece of their self.

I don't think it's impossible for love to be sweeter the second time around, even if they ended up pretty badly. If the love is strong enough and the 2 people are mature enough and willing to work it out. Maybe they are wiser the next time around. If they learned from the first relationship, they would know what to do and not to do to make the relationship work this time. And sometimes, the intense break-up could make them learn more about their partner. But, realistically, not everyone is meant for a "second time around". But some are. =)
