When NOT to hoof it: HEELS

22 Aug

Why should you care about heels, you ask? Great question!

Part of being a good date is thinking like a girl and taking her needs into consideration. We wear heels because it makes us feel sexy, tall, and confident. However, as you can imagine, they are NOT comfortable and we can’t go all night without secretly dying inside! So what can you do about it?

First, just notice. Is she wearing heels? Likely, yes. From here on out, think about shortest distances and flat surfaces. I once had a date maneuver me around a grate while walking on a sidewalk in NY because he paid attention and didn’t want me to get stuck. I immediately smiled because he had the smarts to protect me. Think about elevators instead of stairs and stay away from any dirt paths.

More suggestions:

  • Valet – If it’s a jog from the parking lot to the restaurant, fork over the cash for valet parking. You will save her pretty toes and keep her in a good mood.
  • Save the walk – If she’s dressed up in heels, it’s not the night to take a mile-long walk around the lake. Instead, find a bench or somewhere she can sit.
  • Plan ahead – if you want to take her on an active date, that’s great, just let her know ahead of time not to wear heels and to dress appropriately.

This is a subtlety that most guys miss. When you take note, we feel like you have experience, and we thank you. 🙂

    I don’t get why women insist on torturing themselves. We certainly don’t care about and definitely don’t look at what’s on their feet.

    @duderhulk – It’s about how the girl feels. It makes her feel tall and confident and sexy, which will put her in a better mood for the whole date. Wearing our heels is like bringing our A-game. Why wouldn’t you want your dates to bring the va-va-voom? I suggest considering it as a compliment since she wants to look her best for you.

      What do u do when you are downtown having a great night and you want to go to another place and continue but the girl really doesn’t like to take cabs

        Pick her up and carry her! JK. You should always be sober enough to drive your girl around on your first few dates. It’s your job to take care of her, so make sure you can drive her to the new location and can see her home safely at the end of the night.

        If you live in a busy city and must take a cab, make sure it’s a clean one and doesn’t have vomit on the floor. Check it out before she gets in there with her nice dress and heels. And it’s your job to pay the fare! (lucky you) 🙂
