MadameNoire Tips: Shop For A Man Like You Shop For Shoes

- By Bossip Staff

How is it that women who are so passionately committed to finding just the right pair of shoes, can suddenly lower their standards when it comes to men? How is it that we sometimes give our “sole mates” so much more thought than our soul mates? Continue…

    MadameNoire Tips: Shop For A Man Like You Shop For Shoes…
    _____________________________________________

    If that’s the case (especially for me, cause LORD knows I got a made shoe game!) that would make you a h o e!?!

    However I do get the point that this thread is trying to make here but it just doesn’t come off right!!! I’m just sayin!

  • Yun Dun Know

    Easy.

    When women (especially black women) have standards of what we want in a good man (period) we often get shunned because some people feel that our standards are too “high”, when we are simply asking of what any woman would ask for when finding a compatible mate.

    So….we are forced to lower standards. Not saying that I do or have, but I have seen it happen where a female has certain criteria of a man they want, only to see their “list” get broken down by people who believe their standards are too high.

    Why is that?

    Shoes are easy to pick out because ultimately, they arent going to be laying with us in bed, wanting to build a future with us, and wanting to marry us. I can see the analogy, but its not a very good one.

    Fortunately, I choose my men way more carefully than I do a pair of shoes.

    Dear MadameNoire,

    As a certified MAN, I am deeply offended at the s-e-x-i-s-t notion that my gender is reduced 2 being compared 2 a shoe, and I further resent the implied idea that we r something 2 b walked on, while we kiss your feet. 1st y’all compare us 2 parking spots, now Prada. What’s next? Gucci handbags? Tampons? Stop the madness!

    I’m a PERSON, not some THING!
    Shoes step in s**t.
    We R the s**t!

    Next time u compare us 2 shoes, at least have the decency 2 mention the newest limited-edition Nike Air Jordans. Just do it, OK?

    Sincerely yours,

    Sole Brutha #1

    @Slide Like a Fresh Pair of Gators: In my humble opinion, after “chemistry & compatibility” I feel as though you should just pay attention to that man to see if he has the qualities of being a good friend, good husband and good father…

    agreed. well said.

  • http://urnotpdiddyloser 5'10" AKILLAH RICHARDS

    now back to that closet. you gotta have some cute ones for a rainy day. just the other day got a new killer pair of shoes and found a cute boy to walk on too. lol. just kidding. both the shoes and the boy were similar to an old pair/old boy, but both the shoes and the boy are cuter. ah life is good.

  • Yun Dun Know

    @Slide Like a Fresh Pair of Gators:

    Agreed!

    And if he doesnt meet your standards of that good man that you are seeking….then there’s only ONE thing to do!

    Shoe shop!! LMAO

  • http://urnotpdiddyloser 5'10" AKILLAH RICHARDS

    @shreveport shawty: never once said I was engaged. Nor did I say men had to pay to be with me. I said I wouldn’t be with a man that didn’t spoil me. Why do people always twist/add words?

  • http://urnotpdiddyloser 5'10" AKILLAH RICHARDS

    as a matter of fact, I said I couldn’t be in LOVE with a man that didn’t spoil me. to be exact.

  • http://urnotpdiddyloser 5'10" AKILLAH RICHARDS

    That made me smile!

    For real though. This is not the right comparison I have A LOT of shoes. I think in college every body goes shopping for said “shoes” it’s all a matter of staying away from the clearance rack.

  • BLACKHAWK

    Damn, i’m seriously thinking about coming out with a woman’s book to dating and become dumb rich. These women will listen to anybody.

    But for real, u need to get advice from one of the old woman who been married for 20yrs to give u some wisdom, stop getting advice from tv or from a blog or magazine!
