I was on the train the other day giving a guy a “quick glance.” The quick glance is the glance at a guy to determine whether he is worthy of a longer, more thoughtful look. In the end, I decided that his shoes weren’t shiny enough. No second glance.
Reflecting on my relationship status, past and present, as well as recent conversations regarding the same, I had to laugh at myself. I needed to evaluate the evolution of the quick glance test. It used to be so simple: face then shoes then teeth.
As I have gotten older, it seems to have become more strict: face, then ring finger, then shoes, now how shiny are the shoes?
