I love to shop with friends but i enjoy shopping by myself alone more.The reason why i like to shop alone because,i feel more cmfortable to browse around without constantly keep on eye with my friend all the times to make sure she is around the area that where i can find her.It's hard to concentrate on what i'm looking for....So what about you?

I do like shopping with friends. But for certain type of shopping I prefer to be alone. This way, I can concntrate more easily on working out unit cost and compare with various brands, study details including the fine prints and then take an informesd decision to select a product. This process takes a lot of time and most of the people would get bored with what I do.

I think it is good to do BOTH. I go by myself if I have a certain look that I want to get or if I just need to take my time and just browse around. I go with friends more of to have a good time than to shop actually, since I rarely buy much when with friends. Your friends are good to give a second opinion if they have the same style. Overall, it depends on my mood and what I actually am going to do.

i usually shop with my friends.the reason being that when me and my friends are shopping most of our time goes in gossiping and moving here and there so whenever i want to do window shopping i go with them but when i am serious about shopping i go with my sister.

I prefer to do shopping alone rather than with friends. This applies only for the real shopping I am talking about. But when I do window shopping, I prefer to be doing it friends rather than alone, which way I can spend more time in window shopping. But when it comes to real shopping, I can do it with friends, as I am slow and steady shopper, most of my friends don’t like (I feel that way) the way I shop and will not stay with me for long and I take lots of decisions and cancellations of the products I buy and had to go back and forth in the shop and this might frustrate them, so I mostly avoid friends when shopping.

hi there. i think it just depends on my mood. there are times when i dont want to shop alone, mainly because i have no specific place to go to and i just want to do some window shopping. then that is the time that i dont want to shop alone. however, when i want to buy some serious shopping, like buying my outfits, i would rather shop alone because i dont want to have someone along with me because their decision and their taste might affect my decision on what to buy for myself. lolz. :)

Yes I do, specially on clothes or shoes. I like to get other people's opinion. It's actually fun to shop with friends than to shop alone for me. But what I hate is shopping with my husband. He just have no patience for it. It's annoying to shop with him.

I have a couple of friends that I don't mind shopping with. One of us will say "I'm goign over here", or "I'm going to the dressing room" and we just do our own thing, but we stay in the same store until we're both ready to leave.

I have to be alone when I shop for shoes. Nobody would be patient enough for my fickle-mindedness when it comes to choosing the best pair. When I buy shoes, I could not decide right away which pair to buy, so it is taking me too long to decide. When I shop for other things, that's when I would invite my husband or even my friends along. They could give me good advice.

I will like to shop with my friends. They can give me more suggestion and opinion for the clothes. But in the end i am still the one who buy it or not. Sometime, their opinion is great. We give each other opinion too.

I have a very defferent response to this. To be frank, I don't like shopping. I entrust my wife and daughters for the shopping needed in our house. It is always them who buy even my clothings. I feel boring to brows around racks in search of some favourite items. My wife and daughters love it. They are always enthusiastic about shopping. However six months back when I purchased a new car I and my son in law went and selected the car. Thank you.

I agree with you! I love to shop alone or with a best friend that has similar tastes in shopping as I do... But most of the time, I still shop alone! I do think that it is more comfortable for me to shop alone because I can go to stores that I want to without having to wait for the other friends that might have different interests from me... And then you are more comfortable to buy anything that you might not be comfortable with when other people are around.. For example, underwears when your friends of opposite gender are around.. =) However, I do find shopping with a best friend that has similar, if not the same, tastes in shopping is fun, too! =)

It depends on what thing I want to buy, If I want to buy an electronic item then I always need second opinion. But if I want to buy clothing I prefer to be alone because I tend to try a lot of items before I decide which item I like... Thank you for asking have a nice day...xx
