What is the difference between flip flops and sandals?

There are many who confuse flip flops and sandals. They believe that there is not much of a difference between them and that flip flops are ideally a type of sandals. I think there is a big difference between them. This is because I own both and I prefer the slip-on to something that I need to bend down to buckle every time. That is why I wear these flip flops every day.

What is the difference anyway? Let’s start with the flip flops. They are open toed footwear that can resemble slippers more than sandals. They have a flat sole that is held loosely with the help of a Y shaped strap on the foot. It is very informal footwear worn in casual situations. A beach, for example, is the perfect venue for flip flops. The name comes from the noise that they make while walking – the slapping sound.

Sandals, on the other hand, have a sole that is strapped firmly to the foot with what can be called a thong. It is secured at the ankle as it passes over your instep. Sandals are considered to be more of formal footwear when compared to the flip flop. Another difference is that while flip flops have flat soles; a pair of sandals could be flat or could have heels such as a platform.

It is the strap at the back of the ankle that is the biggest difference between these two. The times and places where they are worn at too make another important difference. I would prefer flip flops to a garden party while sandals would be the perfect fit for a relatively formal get together. End of the day, it is what makes you comfortable that you should pick. You should take care as to not injure your feet in the process. That is the key.

A expert guide to love

Even if you read a whole library of books on love you can still make blunders. Love doesn’t play by the rules after all. And each love is different. And each love has its own imperfections.

Love is not a fairy tale

All the love stories the books talking about love are all lovely to read. But not many of them actually apply to real life scenarios. Do you think that all the authors of these ever popular love tales had the best love lives? What is on the book doesn’t happen in life. Your special someone might love you more than you realize but might just be inexpressive or might have a different way of expressing his love than you imagined. It is about keeping your eyes and mind wide open.

Be expressive:

After all if you wrap a present for someone with a beautiful bow on it and never give it to the person, would it really matter? The same applies to love that is not expressed. Use your own ways to express your love. Famous love quote to help express your feelings can easily be found on the internet. You could even quote these to your loved one once in a while. But do not do this too often and sound too artificial. This idea works when you run out of ideas to express your love. And if you have been in love with this person for a long time you should definitely know the best way to express your love and the way that would really matter to that person.

Do not be afraid of love

Love is not always about the burden of commitment. When you really love someone the commitment comes naturally and you would not have to force yourself to it. So do not be afraid to fall in love. True love would not chop your wings off!
