As I was sitting in traffic court today (ticketed for having too much style in traffic) I noticed a young woman next to me and her fabulous pink shoes. I tapped her on the shoulder and told her that her shoes were nice; she sort of nodded and grunted a thank you then went back to reading. I had to wonder if she was a faux shoe lover.
Women who truly love shoes want to talk about those shoes. If you compliment a woman on her shoes and she has real shoe love she will want to tell you all about where she got the shoes, how much she loves them, where she wears them and how they make her feel. It is very similar to being in love only shoe love is far more solid and obvious. You can always count on your shoes, right? Notsomuch so with a lover. Would your shoes leave you sitting at home while he goes out with the guys? Would your shoes cheat on you? Your Choos wouldn't leave you wondering if they are going to call. See? it's a much more solid relationship.
Anyway, women who don't want to tell you all about their shoes are not true shoe lovers. They may pretend to love them when they buy them, but really? they are just buying shoes for their utility, for what the shoes can do for them. True love is reciprocal, you know.
My case was dismissed; the judge knew you can't fault people for being fabulous.
