It was all news to me when J told me the other day on our commute into New York City. He said he had seen a woman’s feet across the aisle on the bus and her toenails were, well, not so perty. That, he said, suggested that she might not maintain other areas of her looks/body/life.
I had never heard of it before! Of course it’s not a tried and true rule or anything, but apparently while dating J would check out his ladies’ toes. He appreciates a girl with a beauty routine and if her feet were bare, she probably wasn’t right for him.
The entire time he was telling me, all I could think about was whether or not he was really hinting that I was the one who actually needed a full-out pedicure (it has been a leetleeee while... I usually paint ‘em myself), but he assured me that, no, I was fine but this was really something some guys paid attention to while checking out girls.
I still wasn’t totally convinced (I mean, nice T&A probably overrides chipped nail polish, right?), but found evidence to support the theory from one of Glamour’s Man on the Street videos (around the 1:40 mark). Apparently guys really do pay attention to our feet. Who knew!
Even J’s best friend, Brian, supports the theory telling me this weekend that he loves women’s shoes. He loves a girl who will rock a killer pair of heels and strut her stuff. So there you have it. Heels, cute pedi and smooth skin: feet are the new windows to the soul. I guess…
And, ladies, let’s really be honest here. Would you date a dude with gnarly toes? My friend doesn’t even want guys to show their feet—period: “The worst thing a guy can wear is sandals! Guys, keep that sh*t under wraps! Please just wear a pair of sneakers, oxfords, boots…anything but the dreaded mandall!”
Amanda and her boyfriend were out to eat the other night andwhen the bill came she went to the bathroom. When she came out her boyfriend said the bill was taken care of so they left. She felt like everyone was staring at them when they were leaving so...
