And here we go again...

But now, I learned from mistakes, so I've invented a new rule for blind dating: not to date when you are desperate. Ever. Not that I really did that the first time around. Just sayin'.

And the new trick I discovered to avoid desperation is to date when you don't feel like you have to or have the urge, but already got something going already. This just prevents turning some mishaps in the dating world into yet another failed relationship. It's like... not going shopping when you're hungry?

Second round

Sorry for all of you thirsty for foot-footage and toe coverage. I'm much more into writing about dating or topics these days than anything else.

So here we go again... I'm not really into dating again. Yet. Or ever. But I'm not into putting myself into storage either.

Everything feels great these days. Whatever wounds I had have closed up and from the outside you could never tell that my heart was ever broken. Only I know that I probably just don't have a heart anymore.

Yeah, I became one of those North American bitches that only care about themselves. Blah blab blah. Well, that's not true. I do care about a few other people besides myself, who actually deserve it. But as for any future candidates of seriously entering into my wonderful life? I say no thank you!

Over with broken hearts. Over with relationships. Over with all the non-sense of adjusting who I really am to some stranger who stirred up some chemicals in my brain. I'm entering any interaction with caution. And for the first time, I can do it and still feel myself.

How needs a boyfriend when you can have virtual lovers to text to, flirt with and find out they are your neighbor 2 years down the road when you can actually use them? I'm surprised at myself that I don't give a damn anymore.

Arrgh, what's the point?!

Last time I fell in love: I was happy with myself. It was after I took a 4 year breaks from relationships, men, dating, all that nonesense. I focused on what made me happy and re-built myself. I was in the process of making my dream come true career-wise. And although I was quite far from reaching my goals in that area, I was confident it will happen and had that blind optimism.
I was also naive enough to think that it would be possible to meet a true love, soul mate, whatever way you wanna call it. And I did. Than things didn't work out. But we stayed friends and he's still in my life in a very real way. He's the closest thing I have to a family. At the same time, we both know we are not and will never be a couple again.

Of course, it took a long time to come to this realization, a lot of pain to go through. And when I finally re-emerged out of the other side of the tunnel, I was happy with my life again, happy with myself and who I am... And than met someone else. Do you notice a pattern? The moment you get satisfied with being one, being single, being alone, being yourself... Relationship lands on your lap. Only to end up in another crisis, making you lose your centre of balance, making you question your own identity which was shaken to the core by the penetration of another being into your life, and its sudden abandonment.

It's been almost 3 months since my latest breakup. I'm starting to feel the edges of my silhouette and get a sense of completion just by being me. I often feel lonely on weekends and in the evening when the work day is over and I've done all my chores, and contemplate the prospects of dating again. But wouldn't that just bring me to the same bend in the road again? Losing my happy self again when it's over?

So I ask you my friends: What's the point?

Relationships are an illusion...

This blog has been abandoned for over two years now. Life took over. This blog was originally a break-up project, something to keep my mind off (or on) a major breakup that happened with what I still consider the love of my life, but like all the relationships I had so far, didn't work out.

The whole shoe and socks buying and blogging thing was a nice distraction from my misery and also a way to get my ex to pay attention to me even after we broke up. I know, this sounds terribly immature. But this blog is a place where I can be honest. Because probably no one ever reads it really.

Three years and another broken relationship later, I'm even more bitter, cynical and hopeless than I've ever been before. When I see people in a relationship all I can think about is that it's only a question of time, and theirs will be over too. I can see the faults or the fucked up interaction between couples when I hear them calling each other on their iPhones, or meeting up for lunch. It's all so temporary and hopeless.

Whatever was left of the naive and romantic me has been drowned time and time again in failed relationships. By now, I'm completely disillusioned about marriage and relationships and, unfortunately, completely immune to falling in love ever again.

After all, falling in love is the only thing that makes two strangers choose to share the same roof, split their genetic code and other assets, and settle for something that is so fickle and unreliable. I'm so jaded.

Finally... Something to look forward to!

After a long season of "bleh" shoe designs (SS07, and even WF0708 were both quite lame with nothing to rock my world or empty my pocket so to speak), here comes a whole new season and with it endless possibilities of adventures and ways in which to empty my pocket book, non existent credit cards, and whatever might be left of my bank account...

I know, I know what you're thinking... Theresa was just too depressed to notice anything mourning her dying love story and so on... Well, you might be right, but I'm gonna stand up to my original view and say - my oh my did the last season suck in shoe design!

On the other hand, I have to agree, I'm back to my old self again. Obsessing about shoes and pairing them up with odd socks and kinky outfits. Perhaps now that love is officially over, I finally have time to take a closer look at the really important things in life. In case you need a reminder - these are SHOES & SOCKS.

A quick glance at the B2 window set me up with a dream for this season right away, in the shape and form of two sassy pairs of sandals, on which I immediately zoomed in (see the next pic). The only problem remained - which one to choose?

So, I decided to go and check for myself yesterday afternoon. I made the mistake of going on a slow day where I got too much attention from the staff at B2, thus probably blowing away for life my ability to take pics of sassy shoes there without buying them (or until buying them, that is... coz most shoes worth capturing are also work keeping if you ask me...).

The first pair looked great with or without socks. The perfect look to complement my uber-cheap, ass-hugging sweatpants in pretty much the same tone of gray. I just love gray these days, and don't ask me why coz I haven't the answer. The bold strap in the middle looks equally awkward and appealing. So are the gray heels. The rest of the shoe is pretty classy though, and reminds me a little of the black Gazith Mary Janes with the cream piping. Perhaps a detail that should not be repeated in a shoe wardrobe, perhaps would go unnoticed?

The other sandals were oddly more comfortable, albeit far taller (I believe they measure up to 4" or more, but these are platforms and the arch is amazingly perfect so I can certainly do them!). Although not perfectly made for my cheap sweatpants like the previous pair, I think they complemented them pretty good. What makes me happy is to think how well they will go with basically anything - jeans, sweatpants of other colours, and most importantly - my newly acquired, shiny gold dress. And unlike those Marc Jacobs I liked from my post before, I can actually try these ones on.
The only downside? The beautiful and practically perfect pair of sandals cost a mere $400 before taxes. So I will be needing to save up for them or start pimping for them... Oh, and did I tell you yet how beautiful the wooden heels and platforms look? And how much I love the two-toned gladiator inspired straps in my two favourite colours? And the stacked heel... Yum! If it means I will be only getting one pair of shoes this season, so be it. I promise I will behave...

Last but not least - by doing so I will be supporting an entrepreneur woman, Chie Mihara. A Brazilian-born and raised of Japanese ancestry, Chie studied design in Japan and New York and worked in Japan and Europe. Aside from being a successful, intelligent and beautiful business woman with her own unique style, she also has her own family of 3 kids (wow! I have to bow to that, way to go!).

For some reason I can't find these particularly awesome sandals on her webstore, but you might like something else you'll find there...
