You should compare time instead of string. First to think about is how you ended up having these strings. You should not have it in first place.

Solution 1

Take that string and convert it into TimeSpan field and then take the difference.

Read about TimeSpan. You need to find the difference between the to time and the from time. Using Timespan, you get the difference in terms of hours/minutes/seconds, etc.
