Comparison: n. considering the similarities and/or differences in two or more sets and/or subsets

Compare two or more things and you are really analyzing the similarities and the differences in them.

In comparing two recipes the most important thing is how it tastes to you or humans whom you are trying to please. To analyze two or more recipes you look for similar ingredients and their quantity and then check for different ingredients and their quantity which also makes a difference in how something tastes.

In relationships you find out the similarities or what you have in common and then you probe and ask questions to see what the differences are and whether they will be acceptable to you or whether they are things which you can benefit from at perhaps a later date.

Most humans are biased in favor of similarities and prefer humans with similar likes and dislikes. Differences are sometimes threatening to your way of thinking and doing things so we generally try to avoid very different humans, behaviors, and activities which may seem like a threat to our lifestyle or way of doing things and thinking about the world.

Too many of us try to compare ourselves to others, especially possession comparisons, and have a weakness which is trying to keep up with other human lifestyles which only seem better. Frequently imitation can cause us much misery and disappointment because they are frequently profligate lifestyles which we can’t afford.

Comparing and analyzing human personalities is a very valuable skill. If you are always comparing someone to honest, sincere, dependable, trustworthy, competent, friendly, somewhat caring, and interesting ideal humans then you will become a good judge of character and frequently succeed in finding humans who are worth the time and attention and are potential good friends to have in your life.

Keep in mind that these questions are not mandatory. You don’t have to ask them all on the first date. When you ask your first questions they should be slightly general in nature to not seem that you are interrogating or putting you date on the spot.

Remember, the first main objective of a date is to find out how much you have in common in a casual way because the more things that you mutually like and even hate, the better the probability of a good connection.

You should also be trying to create a good first impression with your looks and asking friendly follow up questions which shows that you are interested in them too and not just yourself and are a skilled and pleasant two way communicator.

Asking a question and getting an answer does not mean that you have to get to another question quickly. It can merely be a takeoff point to follow up with more questions or a flowing conversation about the answered question topic.

SHARING GOOD AND BAD EXPERIENCES during the conversation will either bring you closer together or show that you probably were not meant for each other right from the start.
