There are so many comparisons for the two sexes. Girls go to college and boys go to Jupiter, sugar & spice vs. snips of snails and puppy dog tails *barf*.
As I was scrolling through my newsfeed on Facebook, I came across one that has stuck with me, especially since I’m going shopping later: Choose your boyfriends or girlfriends like you choose your shoes.
Obviously, being a proclaimed shoe lover, my first thought was, “How dare this person taint my love of shoes by comparing it to relationships,” but the more I thought about it, the more it made perfect sense.
To help make it easier to understand, I’ve made a “rules to successful shoe (and significant other) shopping” list:
- When you try on a pair of shoes, they should feel comfortable. You should not be falling over just trying to walk in them.
- They should make you feel hot, and like you could conquer the world.
- They should be within your budget, but make sure they won’t fall apart as soon as you leave the store.
- Be weary of sales- other people didn’t buy this shoe for a reason.
- If they’re expensive, they should be a quality material (bf/gf material 😉) that will last a long time if you’re going to splurge on them.
- If you’re having second thoughts in the store, you shouldn’t buy them. It’s too early to not be completely infatuated with these shoes.
- If you buy them, but then later decide to take them back, be confident in your decision- you know what’s best for you.
Relationships, like shoes, can be costly, painful, and fall apart if they’re not built on a sturdy foundation. But, if you’re a little more picky, take your time, and keep an open mind, you might just find the shoe, or human, love of your life.
