Have you ever wondered why women wear uncomfortable high heels? From what I’ve heard, those shoes are very uncomfortable and are bad for posture and bad for long-term physical health. So why do women wear them? Is it to be taller? Is it to look better? I figure it’s some combination of those things. But that leads to another question — is it worth the trouble?
A study at Northumbria University has determined that men cannot tell if a woman is wearing high heels when they walk. In the experiment, men couldn’t tell when women were wearing high heels, unless they happened to see the shoes directly. And from personal research, I’ll say that men tend to not notice what kind of shoes a woman is wearing.
In related news, men don’t notice what kind of handbag / purse a woman is carrying. I don’t know if there’s a study for that, but I suspect it’s true. I don’t know any men who care or even notice whether their girlfriend’s / wife’s purse matches her outfit. So why is it such a big deal?
Also related, have you ever noticed women who are dressed nice and have their hair fixed impeccably yet are dating a guy who looks like he just crawled out of bed? The woman appears to be really concerned about physical appearance in herself but not concerned about it with the man she’s with. Does that make sense?
If you have answers for any of these confusing issues, feel free to explain in a comment.
