Shoes and Men

with 5 comments

“In an age of slovenliness and fat, simply being thin is a mark of status, and high heels emphasize the advantage by lengthening the leg… Women’s willingness to tolerate discomfort, even pain, in the service of fashion is often chalked up to the desire to attract a mate or to rise a step in the social hierarchy.”


I read some intriguing fashion insights regarding 12-inch heels on display at Alexander McQueen’s 2010 spring show. It makes me wonder. Why do we love the shoes that hurt us? What are the consequences of wearing high heels?

How is it similar to relationships, men in particular? How much pain can women tolerate? What are the consequences of being in an unhappy relationship? Many people settle too quickly into situations that aren’t a good fit for them because they think that being with the other person externally validates their worth.

Unlike shoes, you don’t have to settle for someone who completes you. Instead, find someone who complements you.
