I’m a shoe person. I’m a stilleto-addict. Really, I am. But my point is there’s something about girls (or even guys, perhaps?), who are particular about shoes, when it comes to choosing the kind of guys (or girls) they go out with. Have you noticed that?
As a shoe person, I have the tendency to check out the shoes that people wear when I’m out. I believe that you can tell something about that individual with the kind of (and state of the) shoe on their feet. With that said, I reckon it can be used to analyze how they choose the kind of guy they date or end up with.
Shoe-shoppers vary. Some can actually zone in to a pair, just ask for their size then head straight to the cashier. Others take their time and *really* browse through shop after shop, trying on shoe after shoe, before settling on a pair or two to bring home.
With that observation, which type of shopper do you think would end up with a “good” guy if you compare the odds?
Okay. Granted that you’re a guy and guys don’t shop for shoes like that but still you still have to consider the choices before buying a pair, right?
If you’re the type who don’t take care of the shoes you own — I mean, you don’t care if it’s well-maintained, i.e. old ratty sandals are A-OK — wouldn’t that tell how loosely you handle your relationships?
You can always tell me that this metaphor is bloody silly but I think what I’m pointing out is something valid and worth all the time and thought you’d like to give it.
