This is of course only my observation based on my own experience. I love be available to listen when someone has a struggle or problem. So I found that guys are more comfortable standing around talking with me in flats than if I am high-heeled-up to over 5 feet 11 inches tall. I know that often guys (especially competitive guys) tend to be more goal oriented and women tend to be more relationship oriented.
