This was sent to me in an e-mail; since I've recently been discussion the maturity (or lack thereof) of men with some of my LJ friends, I thought it was worth passing along:


Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the
top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good
ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt.
Instead, they just take the rotten apples from the ground
that aren't as good, but easy....... The apples at the top think
something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're
amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come
along, the one who's brave enough to climb all the way to
the top of the tree.

Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to
women to stomp the guts out of them until they turn into
something acceptable to have dinner with!

Bwahahahahahahahaha!!! Love this! I am clearly at the very top of the tree.... *snort!*

on top of the tree
Well, of course you are! And I'm clearly grape nuts!

Hee! Very true about the ladies. :P

However- good men should't be stomped into new and interesting shapes. Those top-of-the-tree-apple-women O_o
will be perfectly content with enjoying the grape just as he is- all sweet and warm from the sun. :D

It's possible that whoever originally wrote that encountered some rotten grapes. :->

That's funny! I guess I'm an old apple (I was 35 when I got married.) I think I agree with beansbeans about the grapes, though!

I was 25 when I got married, which would have put me around 34 when the divorce was final. I'm tempted to blame it on sour grapes, but ...

I've seen this before =)
I sent something like it to one of my friends after she found out her boyfriend was cheating on her then when she said he had to pick either her or the other girl, he picked the other girl.

I also wrote something else similar to it as did her dad.

I feel kind of bad though sometimes when it's always being said how perverted or immature guys are because girls can be just as bad if not worse.
Maybe we are just better at hiding it.

relative term
Your friend might take some comfort in knowing that, when a guy has to pick between two girls, the one he doesn't pick is invariably better off for it.

I'm sure I'm not telling you anything you haven't already discovered, but "perverted" is a relative term. First of all, of course, the definition of perverted is anything *someone else* will do. If you do it but I don't, it's perverted; if I do it, it's normal. That's the first problem with using the term.

The second problem is that our society says it's perfectly okay for guys to be perverted, but it's a terrible, evil thing for women to be perverted. So, because of that double standard, women do get better at hiding it; that was one of my big pleasant surprises when I started dating.

But I stand by guys being the more immature. :-(

And what about guys after that? They wine.

I think that's probably true for all people in general.

true for all people
I'm sure, but whenever it's sent through the internet, it always has to be an us vs. them thing, it seems. Of course, the grape part was meant purely as a joke. I think. Maybe.

Well, I admit to stomping my husband a bit, but I always make sure to plump him back into shape after.

He doesn't complain.

You gotta pick your battles, and if you're a husband you soon learn there's no point picking a lot of them. *grin*
