If the Shoe Fits…

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:

  1. When you try on a pair of shoes, they should feel comfortable. You should not be falling over just trying to walk in them.
  2. They should make you feel hot, and like you could conquer the world.
  3. They should be within your budget, but make sure they won’t fall apart as soon as you leave the store.
  4. Be weary of sales- other people didn’t buy this shoe for a reason.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

  1. Hahaha, idk how this checklist has not gone viral yet. If girls choose their boyfriends Or s\o like the way they choose their valentinos Or louboutins, “happily ever after” would be an understatement. I wonder if I can use your approach and instead of shoes, use a nice suit as the comparison for us guys. A nice beautiful and comfortable tailored made suit, falling within budget, but making us look great and feel awesome. Love your writing Sarah!!! Keep it up!!!
