Oh yes i love shopping!Its a complete stress buster and makes me feel good.Of ocurse when i see the bill later i feel i tad bit guilty but then what the hell!I love to shop for footwear and clothes, and thats just not for me, for my relative too. Clothes are fun but I always love shopping for homewares. I love little funky things that identify a house as being my place.Yes it is expensive, but if yu know your own limits and shop within it, then what the hell. But I hate going shopping with somebody becouse it takes too much time and you then are very tired.
My best friend is gay but we have totally different clothing styles so shopping with him is very interesting.I'm more into comfy jeans, skinny or flare is fine with me. Band t-shirts and hoodies. I refuse to pay $50 for a damn shirt just because it says the stores name.He's into the more expensive stores that are only made for size 4 and and under [note, I'm being sarcastic] like Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch, American Eagle etc.So whenever we go shopping he drags me into Hollister and makes me try on $60 jeans...[oh wait they don't have my size because they stop at size 11 lol.] and a $40 shirt that just says the store name. He tried to convince me to spend half of my paycheck on this crap but he hasn't succeeded yet. XD He always tried to get me to buy clothes that are like 3 sizes too small also. Just because he likes skin-tight shirts doesn't mean I do lol.
Oh, I understand that feelings. My partner is also can walk through shops and buy nothing in the end. And when I ask him why he does it, he usually answers me that he is distressed walking through the shops and needs it to calm down. I don't understand this logic, so we found a compromise - when we need to buy something and we know exactly what is necessary to buy - we can go for shopping together, but if he is just stressed and needs to calm down through shopping, he does not need me for it and can easily do it alone. We are both satisfied.
Do a food shop together :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:
You don’t want to be that couple that has a massive fight in Tesco.
It’s a stressful experience so test yourselves and see how you handle it together.
We went together. His philosophy was:
1) It was too much pressure on him to pick out something I would potentially hate
2) He wanted to share the experience with me
Shopping is the best cure for the spleen, it is always possible to invite shopping friends, and spend time in good company. Our mothers and grandmothers made the trip to the store when it was necessary to purchase a particular item of clothing, and we visit the trading rooms, and make purchases, because we like the process itself."If everyone were to go every day in new clothes, depression would disappear from the face of the earth" – tells the same character. Of course, we are still happy, and in the further process of use (wear, use) most of these purchases. And when a new thing is really to face, and others make us compliments – it acts as a kind of doping for mental health, becoming the Foundation of self-confidence. ;)
I think shopping once in a while is okay like your birthday or when you have some extra money, but not all the time. Splurging money is not so good. But i go window shopping ocasionally though, to see things, have relaxation like you said.I hate shopping alone, i shop with mom because she's brutally honest and pays, and shop with friends for fun. Actually for me it would be Shoe Shopping but clothes shopping comes a close second.I love clothes but now I rather food shop. You can go second best on everything else but not on what goes into your body. :)
You should to write the prices. First and foremost, being grateful—not just for possessions, but also for the people, places and simple pleasures in life—is good for the soul. But an attitude of gratitude is also a proven antidote to impulse purchasing because it creates a sense of abundance within the individual. When you’re feeling full of gratitude, you’re less likely to subconsciously try to fill emotional holes by treating yourself with gifts and accumulating more stuff. Worse, you’re likely to get worn down over time, so that you end up jumping at some offer partly to reward yourself for all of the times in the past you behaved virtuously and passed on the latest bargain.
I do not like shopping at all, because i visit shopping malls only when i really need something, because that i think is really not seem to be very manly, i do not want to say hat if you spend a lo of time there that you re not man, but still you should be aware of spending too much time there . I can be really dangerous , in case of material lose.
I can't stand it because there's nothing to do except stand there and look like an idiot, other than check out other men. By the way if you're going to take your man shopping with you, don't get mad if he's checking out other men, you dragged him there and like I said there's nothing to do there besides look like an idiot.Just leave me at home, let me watch sports and do my thing. Than we'll spend an hour or two there in one store, only to come out with one item or worse, nothing at all. That's like me asking you to go with me to something you have no interest in.
