Don't You Dare..!

For several days I really wanted to have mangosteens. So on the weekend I went to a store and bought about 3.5 kilos. Why so many, you might ask. Well, I simply wanted to have bigger chances to get the best. However, most of the time I couldn't be sure I would get good ones, let alone the best, as I could only see them from the outside. I spent some time to select ones which looked good with hope that I would get the good ones.

Guess what?

I chose a pretty one

But that one was rotten.

It turned out to be good.

And surprisingly enough, this one looked not so pretty but was actually very good.

Once I peeled off their skin, I couldn't return them to the store. Whether I like it or not, I gotta accept what I got. I could only blame myself for not being a good "judge".

Hmm...
To me choosing a partner is somehow similar to that. The big difference is that you have to be a good person to get a good partner. If you think your partner/wife/husband was a bad person, don't you dare claiming you're good!. scold

And to me my Giant is good man so I guess I am not that bad, eh? hole grin giggle


PS
I was lucky to have many more good mangosteens than the bad ones. Although I still couldn't judge them from their looks, it's worth spending time selecting.. banana

This is new I dont know this fruit we dont have it on the Island,
And I have not seen it on the market here ,
Still I will ask about this Mangoseens fruit on the market in Rotterdam,
Walk good Kal peace
I don't think you thought that through, Kal.
In a nutshell, what she is saying is that USUALLY birds of a feather flock together.
So if your partner is not good then you did not choose right.
Good attracts good, evil attracts evil.
It's the question of 'if and only if' that @jac refers to.
In logic @OP's statement is equivalent to:
'if not good person, not good partner' or 'not good implies not good'

Mangosteens are rare too here in Sydney, but Durians are plentiful!
The big difference is that you have to be a good person to get a good partner. If you think your partner/wife/husband was a bad person, don't you dare claiming you're good!
I was referring to domestic abuse, the cycle of abuse and people (mostly women) who are murdered by their partners.

In that context, the first sentence implies victims of domestic abuse deserve it because they are 'bad' people who pick 'bad' partners.

The second implies that victims of domestic abuse should keep quiet in shame at their own 'badness'.

It was an attempt at a sweet analogy by Kal, but it has ramifications for some people that I feel compelled to address.
Kal said. If you think your partner/wife/husband was a bad person, don't you dare claiming you're good!
Well! It is debatable.What about that person of choice is a big pretender and you are being naive and trustful believed him.
You got luck. But I still do not understand how come in all those years knowing your Giant, you are still not together. Where is a will (love) there is a way.
