Second Chances

I was thinking the other day (I know, right?) about all of the amazing opportunities I have had in my life, including dating some spectacular and some not-so-spectacular men.  You've heard enough about them lately, I'm sure.

What I then got to thinking was how many of them to whom I have given second chances.

I can only think of one man with whom we did not attempt to rekindle a relationship.  That's nuts!  Everyone always says that "getting back together" never works, so why have I done it?

I live my life in a manner in which I want no regrets.  I do not want to say I did not try.  I tried.  Things didn't work out.  At least I know without a doubt.

What do you think about giving dating a second chance?

(don't worry, don't worry, I'm not second-chancing anyone right now, just curious about YOU guys)

I definitely fall into the 2nd chance category. At least with people that I've seriously dated for a while. Hasn't panned out (obviously), but I don't regret giving things a 2nd chance. With as hard as it seems to get 2 people together, it seems like it's worth giving things a chance.

And despite "everyone" "always" saying that "getting back together never works", sometimes it does.

I did it once and it BLEW UP in my face. (It even caused me to prolong giving Mr. Wonderful a chance.)

There's a reason you broke up in the first place. It's best to let sleeping dogs lie.
