Lookalikes — Desperate Vs. Disparate

ImageToday, I bring you another set of doppelgangers.

Desperate Vs. Disparate

Desperate [des-per-it, -prit] (adj.):

1. Having an urgent need, desire.

2. Reckless, dangerous because of despair.


She was so desperate for his attention, she jumped in the pool with her clothes on just so he could glance one more time at her before he walked out of that door.

Disparate [dis-per-it, dih-spar-](adj.):

Distinct, dissimilar, essentially different.


Their personalities were so disparate, that everyone understood their attraction but nobody could comprehend how they managed to live under one roof.

  1. Very nice to find your work on similar words and their meanings… great job! Also, thanks for the like on my site!

  2. Great post, got to remember to edit thoroughly as sometimes I type weirdly so Word likes to assume my words mean one thing when I meant something completely different (such as desperate becoming disparate) 😀

  3. Words, words, words! Don’t we just love them! I want to thank you for liking my post about hands on papermudandme.wordpress.com. I’ve been saying so much about books lately that I thought I’d better talk about something else for a change. – Thanks again and Aloha – pjs.
