Some things are acquired tastes, and it can take a long time to cultivate a love for them. Alcohol, spicy foods, veggies, school; all of these and more can take some getting used to but most folks start to like them once they give them a try.

"What did you dislike at first but ended up really liking?"

A lot of vegetables. My mother is not the greatest cook and it took years to realize veggies were delicious when seasoned and cooked properly.

Running and weightlifting, I don't think anyone loves that from the get go.

Cooking. I used to think of it as such a chore until I figured out there was no law stating I had to follow a recipe EXACTLY. I learned that I could play around with different flavours and textures and it became much more enjoyable. I'm not a pro by any means but I love to get into the kitchen and cook up a good meal now.

Note: this does NOT work with baking. Do not experiment with baking.

Salad. Growing up, salad consisted of giant chunks of bitter iceberg lettuce, a couple pieces of tasteless tomato, and many large chunks of red onion. My family would then smother that in ranch dressing. I hated salad for years and hated ranch for years.

My salads now have a dark baby green mix (with spinach and all that stuff), cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, baby corn, radish, broccoli, cubed cheese and a nice vinegar and oil based dressing.

Going to the gym in the morning before work. Waking up an hour and a half earlier than normal, doing cardio again. Would have said you were crazy if you told me I'd be doing it a few years ago.

If you could bottle the feeling I have in the morning after going to the gym you'd be a billionaire. My evenings are more open, I dont have to deal with traffic, I dont have to worry about a piece of equipment I want to use being tied up. Plus it forces me to have a healthy sleep schedule. Major game changer.

Metal music

-Blueee20

Dude, once you get it, you fucking GET IT. And you start to notice the intricacies if the instruments, and then dive into the technicalities of the vocals and it's just like.

Imagine Mozart, but turned up to 11.
Metal.

You know how a lot of people like superheroes as kids? I hated them. I thought that most of their costumes looked stupid and was too immature to understand why everyone was beating each other up.

But starting at age 14, I actually ended up being a big fan of Marvel for a while. I don't really keep up with their movies anymore but I can say with certainty that I still like most of the ones that I have seen.

Seltzer, I used to think it tasted like rotten soda and now I think soda tastes like rotten seltzer

-katymae123

Seltzer is still soda, it's just anger flavored and I don't need that kind of negativity in my life.

Trailer park boys. Took about 2 seasons to get properly into it but now Sunnyvale feels like my 2nd home.

Sour patch kids, the first few time I tried them I couldn't stand how sour they were. Got some for Easter a few years later and ended up loving them, now I eat them all the time.

Sometimes you just don't have any money and you have to make it work. I learned how to make the most out of bargains at the grocery store and know how to make food that is hearty and will last more than a day or two. Beans and rice are your friends, by the way. You'd be surprised by how many delicious meals you can make with just these two basic ingredients.

Now, this isn't going to be a long, "Let's all pile on how bad the internet is and only think about the good ol' days when the rocks were soft and we could only communicate using cans with string."

Look, unless you enjoy cooking, no one likes spending time in the kitchen longer than they have to in order to whip up something mediocre to eat.

We all like to assume that a big old scar has an amazing, hardcore story behind it: maybe a valiant fight or some life threatening-escape.
