I don't really know where to begin, so I probably just won't

Doesn't seem to be in the right forum as well.


I read the whole thread, and didn't realize how old it was!

Shoes? Lol no.

When looking for a partner, yes, I took notice of various traits/attributes, etc.

In fact, I know one very successful man who wears overalls when he makes any major purchase such as a car. That way, he isn't being sized up by the salesman.
I'm 100% with this.
I'm not gonna dress like a Wall street executive, though I do own a couple of business suits. I'm more of a jeans and sneakers guy, though I dress business casual for work (polo shirt, slacks). Off duty I dress more sporty.
In a restaurant, I treat the waiter/waitress with the utmost respect, even leave a tip at the end of the meal.
And my last car purchase, I was in jeans and sneakers...the salesman probably thought I was wasting his time. His expression changed when I laid out the money!

I wear a size 11, but I sometimes wear a size 14 (extra wide ) just for women like you. Lol

Floridian so I'm in flip flops or sandals most of the year regardless of where I live.

Hell 50% of women probably write me off the bat but that's perfectly ok.

Is there anything else that you use to assess people, such as shoes or a car? Not necessarily the cost of these things, but the condition, style, etc.

Or maybe it's something physical like finger nails, teeth, hairstyle?
It's their face.
I can look at your face and know in less than 5 seconds if you're a raging B or ahole right off the bat.
It's easier with women, but I haven't been wrong.

Maybe. But you don't need to worry about those 50% of women, so it makes finding the right one(s) that much easier.

When I was a young teenager, my best friend's older brother was so hot, so cool, and he wore flip-flops and shorts all summer. He had great legs and beautiful feet. He never gave me the time of day but I've always had sort of a "thing" for men with nice legs, nice feet, and who liked wearing flip-flops. LOL.

And extra long natural nails are just nasty. I just think of the word stank when I see them. It shouldn't be hard to figure out why.[/quote]

Don't you mean SKANK?
