    Love can be better the second time around but only if you've learned the lessons from the first time and try to grow as a person. If not then you will just repeat the same mistakes and end up with the same results.

    Well put, thanks for sharing. I also think that if your first love was an unhappy one it will be better the second time.

    Hmmm, most professional dating sites insist on one being divorced and for a minimum of two years.  Now, here in the UK second marriages have a higher divorce rate than the first marriage (both hugely high), the stats are usually pointing to those who re-marry within the first two years of a divorce from a long term (5+years) relationship!

    For me, after 18 years together and finally ending in my divorcing her I did meet a really nice woman, this was only after three years, it fizzled out without arguments - thankfully as neither of us were really ready, but I do think of her lots.

    My answer, I had my two gorgeous sons with my X wife, a very bitter divorce, met women since, and finally at this 10 year point I feel ready to meet 'another' true love, is that an answer, the jury is still out!!!

    I think that it is true. They say, "if you love something then let it go, if it comes back to you its yours, if not then it never was".
    Well I've experienced this firsthand.
    When you break off a relationship with someone that you love but get back together with them, the flame burns even stronger after the rekindling. This is because you've realized it was real love and not just something that could be brushed off and forgotten. It's not this way in all cases of course, but many times this is what happens.

    Love should bring fulfillment to your soul no matter which time around it is.  I'm not an expert on the subject but have learned what it is and definitely what it is not.

    Well, there hasn't been a second time for me, so I couldn't tell you on a personal level.

    Now, on a philosophical level the answer is: perhaps, maybe, or possibly.

    Who can know for sure? Does it not depend on the parties involved? Does it not depend on how open one is to love and what each party is willing to give?

    Much of the answer depends on the other party and how they make you feel. It also depends on how receptive one is to love and intimacy. It also depends on if you have a better knowledge of yourself and have chosen more wisely the second time around.

    Moreover, it depends on how much the two of you have in common and how much you have invested in each other. Let us also not forget the character of the parties involved taking into consideration their strengths and weaknesses. 

    Really there are so many variables that answering this question proves difficult, except on a philosophical level. But, in the end, only time will tell.  :0)

    I think so second time  around love feels more precious and worthy to one in a relationship. True love is experienced and this is what shows more value to love.
