His wardrobe is not an expanse of blue with a little black thrown in. He looks clean, shaves, cuts his nails and smells fresh regularly. He returns your calls and messages. He is chivalrous, but not in a Victorian manner. Speaking of manners, he has them in plenty! He totally understands your need for 3 pairs of stilettos in varying shades of mauve. Coming to think of it, he even understands mauve! Does this mean . . . ? Could it mean . . . ? Take this quiz, girl, and take it now!

The Verdict
There's hardly a woman around who isn't interested in shoes. So as a defining factor, I've decided to assign a shoe style to each category that will help you look at your man in a completely different light. Here goes . . .
Mostly As
For starters, have you checked if he's an alien? He takes you shopping, genuinely comes to your rescue when you're embarrassed, your friends love him, and so does your family. Hey, if your cat trusts him, there is no reason you shouldn't. So if you keep getting visions of a three-tiered white cake, I don't blame you.

Why do I think this man is like a wedge heel? It's fine to wear it at work, and transforms into fabulous party footwear if you want it to. And, it won't hurt you even after a full night of dancing! What more can a girl ask for in life?
Mostly Bs
So you've nailed a nice guy. It's fine to have the occasional quirk or two. Maybe punctuality is not his strongest point, and at times you think he's a little too cagey with his money. In the end what matters the most is how you feel about living with these quirks for the rest of your life. Can you do it? Won't be such a bad idea to keep dating and see if you feel the same after a few months down the line.

This man reminds me of the ballerina - flat and insipid, yet chic and comfortable. A safe choice, though, considering the dearth of decent, single men out there.
Mostly Cs
Hmm . . . so you're with a person who probably has a slight temper problem, is a little vain, kind of flirtatious. You think you love this person, and if marriage is on your mind, well, good for you. But before you start picking a wedding dress, take in the opinion of your family and friends who are sure to tell you that you definitely deserve better.

He's like those red pumps in your closet. I'm sure you love them deeply, but looking at their limited utility should make you ponder. You couldn't think of him as Mr. Perfect, but as Mr. Perfect-for-now.
Mostly Ds
You're with a guy who is fine with making a fool of himself in public, freely takes potshots at you, and is worth a Chinese take-out from your parents' point of view. If you happen to be dating him for the sake of dating, there is nothing wrong with it. If you seem to fancy him deeply, nothing's wrong with that either. We're all allowed to have our type, as long as he makes us happy.

His worth in shoes? He's too tacky to be measured in terms of footwear, but if you insist - cheap, rubber flip-flops. Good enough for a weekend on the beach. Nothing more, nothing less.
This fun quiz is exactly like its name; it's meant to be fun. I do hope all you girls had a nice time taking it. And as far as equating the man in your life with footwear is concerned, my sincerest apologies. I really didn't mean to offend any of the shoes in your closet!
