If this is the case then why is it that women are encouraging guys to wear sandals? Seems like just about every girl I've asked said sandals are the way to go. Go to the local shopping mall and it seems like all dudes under 30 who are with women are wearing flip flops

If it's a nice, hot day, and it's my day off from work.......yeah, I'm going to wear sandals. I don't care what other people are or may be thinking.

Just because a guy is walking with a woman doesn't mean she is his. A lot of guys are in the friendzone and just have a gal pal. Most of the time I am go somewhere with someone it is always a guy these days as I can't find female friends who want to do anything, but I'm not dating or sleeping with any of these guys. Wear whatever you like, wear a dress, panties & bra if you want to its a free country.

The younger men don't even get this because the youngest generation of guys is more feminine than the girls of today are.
The normal human gait is now effeminate? You're out of your mind. When people wear 5 Fingers or walk in bare feet, you are witnessing the natural human gait. Not the mechanically botched version that padded shoes produce.

You really think that the vast majority of guys that are shopping with a women are in platanic relationships? Really?

Yep. I have gone shopping with platonic female friends. Men are never up for it.

Nothing screams this dude is in the friend zone like shopping with a female. Men do not like shopping unless its at Home Depot, Bass Pro Shop, Dick's Sporting Goods or Game Zone. Any dude shopping elsewhere with a woman he is not married to is usually one desperately trying to get on the gal's good side aka get her to have a relationship with him. Guys hate shopping its just a fact of nature!

Out here in high desert areas, it's very common to see grown men in sandals or flip flops. I myself wear reefs nearly every day of summer. Love them.

Not sure about this. I think a lot of boyfriends will shop with their significant other, at least at certain points in the relationship.

You are right about most men's feelings about shopping. I think men in general like shopping for cars, tools, etc...heavy, 'manly' stuff. Forget clothes, shoes, etc. To go clothes shopping with a woman is sheer torture for most men.

Men also have a completely different shopping style than most women. Women view shopping as an activity, while men view it as a mission. Stores take note of this, and often prefer male customers, because they won't even come into the store unless they're prepared to buy, while women often like to just look around.

The stereotypes you throw around make you look foolish and shallow.
