I don't know about you, but I like yellow apples.

Sounds like a great idea in theory. The problem is when you have to actually spend time with the less than perfect apple, and you find you can't bring yourself to compromise. My 2 relationships in 2011 were with guys who were perfect for me on paper. I told myself that I wasn't getting any younger and would make it work. But when push came to shove I couldn't do it, and decided I would rather take the chance on being alone than with someone I didn't love..

I like red apples, but the sugar hurts my teeth. Anyway...

My best option right now I'd absolutely choose except he's unwilling to spead any more seeds. The next option is a nut. There are two more, but someone else has already licked them both. Everyone knows that if someone licks an apple, no one else can take it. Another one *might* be an option, but that apple is just kinda lying on the ground rotting and perfectly happy to do so.

Now, if I could just take a slice from each of the first four, mix it with some sugar, and make some applesauce, I'd be good.

oh My .. I dont have any apples to choose from so I cant settle but I know I wont settle.for certain reasons.

I will compromise though ..but yes I am willing to stay alone because I dont need the bull dinky anymore from a man.

I think this describes most of the people on OLD--they can never pick because they are always looking for the perfect apple, which doesn't exist.

Love the analogy and the dilemma it depicts. Sometimes an apple just ctahces your eye, and even if it is not perfect, you just have to have it.

It's good that you have a set date in mind if both guys don't set up. I would just set up an account on Match.com anyway, even if its before the date you already have in mind. Men do it all the time, have mulitple women on the side. But if they're still in limbo about what it is they want from you or the relationship than just move and and don't settle for less for the next guy.
