Comparing Apples to Oranges


When people are in a good relationship, they want their friends to have the same joys they do. They often try to set their friends up with dates in hopes a relationship will follow. This is a mistake because their friends may be in a very different place in life. While the person in a relationship may have been ready to settle down, their friend might have just discovered their love of an extreme sport. A relationship at this point could be out of the question.

Comparing peoples’ lives is like comparing apples to oranges. Not everybody is ready to get into a serious relationship at the same time. Even if they find a compatible person, it might not work out for them. It is always nice to see friends in a good relationship. Hopefully the friends will see their joy cannot be spread by citing trite comparisons.
