If you are dressed in a drop dead fabulous outfit complete with 4-inch heels and your date shows up and is shorter than you in those aforementioned heels, should you change shoes? Does a man's ego take precedence over a fabulous pair of shoes?
I say, unequivocally, no. We don't need men in our lives who are intimidated by fabulous shoes; and that's really what it comes down to: it's always the shoes that scare them. If we are not naturally taller than them but are taller when we wear a fabulous pair of Louboutins, then it is the shoes they can't handle.
When Nicole Kidman went on Oprah after her split from the vertically challenged Tom Cruise she mentioned that one of the perks of being without him is her ability to wear heels. I had to wonder why she allowed the Scientology challenged Cruise to bully her into wearing lower heels. Is he so bound up with Thetans that he can't take the competition from Manolos? Is he, indeed, simply not fabulous enough to stand next to fabulousness in its true form: shoes?
We have to ask ourselves: why would we want to be with a man who is afraid of little slices of fabulous?
