“Treat your girl like a new pair of Jordans.”
Someone once told me they go with this so called “philosophy.” I get that having a new pair of shoes feels amazing, like a brand new relationship. Being able to walk around in a fresh pair of Air Jordan IVs, showing off your new prized possession, is kind of like showing off your new girl. A brand new relationship, where everyone praises you on how cute you are together, is just like everyone going, “Damn son. Fresh ass kicks.” That’s understandable. I know some of you treat your new shoes like they’re not even meant to touch the ground, treating them like they’re actual children. Fuck, I bet you’d treat your shoes nicer than your own offspring.
But anyway, shoes get worn out, and the soles start breaking apart after a few months worth of use. Then you just store them away in a dusty closet, bored of their appeal. A brand new pair of “fresh kicks” much more fancier than the last comes out of the store, and there. You’re mesmerized. Bored of your last, you throw that ugly pair of worn out shoes in order to make room for the next.
So, is a pair of Jordans (or any shoe) really what you want to treat your girl like? When you get bored of her, you’ll toss her off to the side, when something or someone more appealing comes into play? Yeah, double check that “philosophy” my friend.
