Do not settle.

So, I saw this on Cosmopolitan Philippines' Facebook page today:

And then I wrote this:

Dear Cosmo,

No. Just no.
Please do not tell women to settle.

If a woman wants a Stan Smith, she should get a Stan Smith.

And yes, I know it can be hard to find a Stan Smith nowadays, but if that's what you really want, then that's what you should get.

And if you want it in green, then you should go the extra mile to find it in green.

Don't get it in pink just because "andyan na eh" or coz "pwede na yan, cute naman eh".

No. Do not settle.

Find those gosh darned green Stan Smiths coz you deserve them.

And when I say green Stan Smiths, I mean the originals. Don't get the fake ones coz they're "easier to find" and coz "less hassle". You'll just end up spending more on something that merely felt like the real thing, but wasn't.

Again: do not settle.

And trust me: a Stan Smith is worth the wait. It will be exactly what you dreamt it would be. You just need to be patient.
