Why I Equate Shoes with Men

13 Oct

I just realized something – I tend to date tall men. I mean, from the first guy I had a major make out session with (during the “Summer of Sin” aka summer of ’97) to the current guy. Most – not all – have been at least six feet tall. Friend boy is 6’8″ for gosh sakes! Maybe it is because I am on the relatively short side (5’4″) and have always worn high heels (ever since I was a teenager living in Miami and was sneaking out to go the clubs on South Beach at the age of 16, but I digress), but I have always attracted to the opposite of me – TALL MEN.

I thought about this as I read this article in the New York Times.  INSANE what some of these women are wearing.

Either way, this article got me thinking.  Since this blog is a journey for me, I figured I would throw out this idea – maybe I should just start dating shorter men if the tall ones break my heart.

The only downside – I’d have to throw out some of my favorite heels and I’m not ready to do that.

What do you think?

Talk soon.

    Yes, yes, the summer of sin was way fun. I still don’t breathe a word about the (major) details to most people.

    I’m pretty sure the shoes will still fit even if your partner is a bit shorter. Not sure why they’d need to be thrown out… 😉

      True. And I could never throw away good shoes. Especially while I’m considering a new purchase as we speak. 🙂
