An Unexpected Benefit From Wearing Heels in Public


Recommended Posts

I went on my morning constitutional at about 6:30 a.m., something which I have been trying to do more regularly as of late. I actually had a mission on this particular morning, I went to drop off a check for my utility bill, which is administered by my city. They have a drop box about a mile from my house, so there is no need to put it through the mail, if one chooses.

I was walking to the drop box in the semi-darkness of daybreak. Normally, on a Sunday morning, our town is dead quiet, with hardly anybody about, and practically no traffic. However, this morning, I noticed a number of police cars driving around, and one in particular stopped at a house and the officer got out and was shining a flashlight (torch, for our British brethren) around a few houses. I thought, "Hmmm, that's funny. I wonder what's going on?" The police officer paid me no heed as I walked by. Several minutes later, another police officer drove by me, rolled down his window and asked me if I had seen anybody sneaking around, and gave a description of the fellow that they had evidently gotten a call about. I had not seen anything out of the ordinary, but it occurred to me that, dressed as I was and usually am, the chances of the police mistaking me for somebody else are probably pretty slim. The officer was obviously not hassling me, only wanting to know if I'd seen anything. It had never occurred to me that I might actually be safer walking in my town in high heels!

How quaint. In the UK cheques (as we say over here) are now hardly used. I haven't written one for several years. Utility bills are usually paid by direct debit, or failing that by bank transfer.

Cheque. I had forgotten the British spelling for some reason. It's funny you should mention the novelty of writing a cheque, because this particular bill is the only bill I have left that I don't pay online. I could very easily pay it online, as the City has updated its billing system a number of years ago. However, I have forgotten my password, and somehow it just seems easier to write out a check every month and hike down to the drop box. It's not, I know, but the shit gets paid either way. It's just my own peculiar take on a tiny slice of life, I guess.

Going to the bank or paying a bill in person is another way to get out heeling. I do it all the time and I enjoy my adventures.

Happy Heeling,

Yes, I do take that opportunity also. But my original point was that if somebody robbed the bank, and the police showed up, they would not suspect you or me for even a second. Well, unless somebody called in that "some guy wearing high heels just robbed the bank." In that case, I guess it would work to our disadvantage.

My favorite side benny is tge unsolicited positive comments from strange women and the conversations that sometimes results. I wished I was public in my late teens and twenties. Who knows how much more fun i could've had. ;-)

miroseplant , Think of the positive side. You would not have to worry about wearing locking heels. 58dea68009a58_DSCF5226(14).thumb.JPG.4f8bb366ba118e447d5e2a10273439e7.JPG

Yes, I've had that lament as well, but I wonder if it would have been awful more than it would have been wonderful. I think it probably would have been, just because of the time. I know I didn't have the mental fortitude to take the kind of abuse I would have gotten in the 80s.

I am not convinced that getting positive female comments and conversations regarding your heeling would lead to more romantic interests. Overall I am still firmly convinced that while women say they applaud men getting their heeling on, that does not mean that they want their man to wear heels. Overall women have not changed in what they want in a mate by neither feminism or social justice. They still want the man to be taller, stronger (mentally and physically), have more social status and make more money then they do. It's not for nothing that they complain where all the good men have gone, even though there are plenty of single good men (by our standards) to be had. They just don't meet those criteria. Begrudging acceptance if you meet those criteria first seems to be the best most people here can hope for, judging by what I read.

I fully agree with most of this.

Oh, I don't doubt that my romantic prospects would have been tougher as a heel wearing young man. But if I had grown up in an environment like today, where kids really do not seem to give a flip about my choice of footwear, I would have had a lot more fun in life in general, though not necessarily with the girls. That's my take on it, anyway.

Perfect, all the more reason to wear heels.  There is no arguing that wearing heels will make a man taller, and I would argue that they also make a man stronger and progressive looking.

So I have a dating profile in which I state that I often wear 4+ inch heels for pain relieve. Better to know up front...why would I waste my time (and money) pursuing a women who couldn't handle it.

Here's an excerpt from last night:  "I’m not sure I’m totally comfortable with that, maybe I’m weird but my mental picture looks like a lady boy like we see in Thailand,...." 

She's too closed minded, too conservative/traditional in her thinking. Better to know now than later.

Try not to spook a gal with mentioning your heel wearing. Gather information about a female that she isn't about showing you off to the public like some trophy. If you can find that gal who doesn't care about her peers opinions of her man then best bet she learn to tolerate your heel wearing. 

Not saying you should go out find hermit that has no social life or friends and family to think of. Although odds are she take anything that may come her way as positive.  

If you go out saying you belch, fart, chain smoke and like to get drunk every night. Most gals can't be attracted to that scene. It's all about showing your best traits once female learns more about you she can disregard things that upset her because they outweigh the benefits you bring into her life. 

Don't be fooled into thinking a female giving you thumbs up or applause seeing you wear heels can be potential mate. Often females want to be PC and positive no matter the person they observe. What do they care if you like wearing heels in public. These ladies have other relationships and types that are superficial  but use you to prove themselves they are open minded kind people understanding males hardship for lifestyle they find alternative to mainstream only they feel don't come over to her backyard.

Macky, you really hate women or don't trust or whatever.

Cali, is right, be up front. Women are not deeper thinkers than men and just as carnal. My experience in the last 20 yrs has been women are impressed by a guy with the balls to wear heels in non drag just because they want to. My problem, i wasted 20 yrs before i figured that out.

It's also cheaper, why spend money on someone who can't cope with "her man wears heels."  I not into bait and switch. If a woman does that I'm out the door.  You can't start a relationship based on a myth.

mlroseplant,

Good point about law enforcement NOT mistaking you for someone else on their radar that day. This does not mean they do not already know about you. I've been to your town and it's neither large nor complicated so I would bet they know of you but, as you said, they were not giving you a hard time. The vast vast vast majority of law enforcement are trained to be observant and courteous and are not scheming to make everyone's life miserable. Despite some reports cops are out there planning and scheming to keep some people down the fact is when the shit hits the fan it is the professionals of law enforcement who answer the call in the middle of the night to respond to an accident in all types of weather, will dispatch world-class medical equipment and personnel to attend to the wounded, and run into certain danger while others run away. Whilst our system needs some reform and fine-tuning I would point out over my career in immigration and federal law enforcement in general I was always amazed how many countries sent law enforcement personnel to the United States for training in a multitude of disciplines from critical incident response, to hostage negotiation, to advanced firearms training, pursuit driving,etc. A nation doesn't send their citizens to get trained unless  they feel they are getting the very best training available. That was one of those things I remembered throughout my career. I got a lot of patches that way just from meeting others from around the world. Many of them were crazy about Border Patrol stuff!  Just let it be said though I never rode a horse on patrol in heels. Can't maneuvre too well in the sand! HappyinHeels

Yes, a horse in heels would be very unusual....

Horses, by their very physiological nature, spend their lives in heels. Sort of.

If they don't know me by sight (I'm not saying necessarily by name), they're not paying attention. I have recent experience that they don't know that much about me, though. In many ways, it's definitely not the same place I grew up in.

I feel badly for law enforcement officers.  This country seems to swing from one extreme to the other, the happy medium eludes us.  There will always be a few bad apples, just like in any other profession.  The difficult job ahead is just how to weed out the bad apples.  Unfortunately, there will be many false claims made against good officers, perhaps the bod cams will help out.  I get accused of racial profiling just working on the plane, I just do my best to minimize contact when these situations come up....But, officers do not have this option....

Was just trying to think of more unexpected advantages of wearing heels, and the only thing that comes to mind at the moment is that, even wearing a mask, people recognize you. That may or may not be an advantage.

I have to admit that wearing a mask has given me more freedom to explore places I currently would not consider to go wearing high heels... or even some more feminine attires.

I had the same feeling. I am afraid it’s just an illusion. Mouth expression is of course as important as eyes . 

But more for ourselves.

Face mask,sunglasses,bonnet,then we could be unrecognizable. But so weird that got immediately noticed.
