Dear Patty T


I have tried to understand the meaning of the sentence "We don’t always have to approve to agree." in your last reply and my brain is getting complicated:) I think that "We don’t always have to agree to approve." is what you intented to write or is there a meaning difference between the two sentences? Anyhow, agree and approve can be used synonymously sometimes, but sometimes they are not, right? Thank you as usual and have a good day.

To me, the distiinction is thus: to approve means that I think the way that you're thinking is acceptable; to agree means that I think the same way you're thinking.
