What is better the second time around?

It can be something you didn't care for the first time, or it can be something you liked just a little bit.

An album? A certain dish? A person?

Divulge and discuss.

^ I agree with that. And food, food seems to taste even better the second time around.

Jumping into the lake or ocean. You tend to always experience the most severe temperature shock on the first jump.

Whether it's food, a book, or music the general rule is that things tend to be better the second time around. As previously quoted....

I believe the initial "shock" of a first hand encounter with anything tends to block out the human ability to evaluate one's own opinion of something. The exception to this rule being people and relationships. Since people tend to establish their individual beliefs and attitudes once they pass puberty; if you have found someone abrasive in the past chances are that you will still find them abrasive in the future. Same goes for ex lovers, they are your ex lover for a reason. Unfortunately the majority of people seem to forget that and end up making the same mistake twice.

Basically the story of my life. Logically, I realize that a certain type of person is bad for me to date in a relationship, and that I should probably avoid making the same mistake in the future.

In actuality though, I guess I must be self-destructive or masochistic, because I just end up falling for the wrong girl over and over again and getting more jaded about it.

With relationships an ended relationship isn't always a bad one. We learn from relationships that don't out so personally I'm grateful for them. Also you really should't be jaded, like myself your in your twenties it isn't like your biological clock is about to run out. Also I've found that a majority of people our rage are incapable of being happy while single. It's a shame really, but thanks to cultural expectations of marriage , a white picket fence, and two kids by the time your thirty a lot of people rush into relationships that they really shouldn't. (Case in point, the American divorce rate.)

Haha, I'm not too worried about my biological clock, true. Being a man, and knowing myself, I should be virile for 50 years if not more. :D

I'm not in too much of a rush to get married and settle down, I expect I'll do that once I hit my mid-30's.
