As a girl, do you like to shopping at the mall, try out those fancy, fashionable clothing available on the display windows? Sometimes, you would like your boyfriend tag along. What if your boyfriend get bored at the mall while you were looking at the clothes passionately. Would you develop sympathy, and shop less at the mall, for the love's sake?

I would get bored at the mall. But my boyfriend loves going to the mall, he likes window shopping so that he can plan out what things he's going to buy. It's me who's tagging along. Anything just to be together would be great. I'm not a shopper type of a girl, so I'm not really that expensive, and don't really fret much about having some material stuff. I just go for the basic, and what's appealing. I think this is why he loves me, I'm a no mess kind of a girl. hahaha.. But we love eating and talking more.

I guess there are still people who can be considered homebodies, the ones who could enjoy life without the need to go somewhere and just spend time with the one they love, and doing things they love - like cooking for you, and mine talking. haha..

ya sure.. but one thing i want to tell is both of us are the same thought ie i want to select his necessasities and he likes to buy for me. If he dont know anything about by needs ie how to buy he ask me about the features and colours then he try to buy the best. He dont hesitate to shop with me. at the same time if suppose he is not like that kind of character then i should sure show sympathy on him by reducing the shopping time

I never liked it when my husband tags along when I do shopping. I don't like being rushed as it is always the tendency when we go to malls. I also don't like his shopping ways; he tends to buy whatever is available regardless the style and price and don't want me to look or browse more as what I always wanted to do. We rarely go shopping together. And if we do I want to be alone in my selections and he in his. Men really don't shop the way women do.

My boyfriend and me, both of us are shopaholics. So we just freak out at the malls whenever we get free time. Even if we don't shop, we just love doing window shopping, see the new fashion which is on, try out some, and keep some to be bought for later. But I love buying accessories and csmetics for me but cannot do so much as he gets bored while I do that!!

I have to say that I don't go clothes shopping often and I am more of the cd's, books and other stuff shopper. I have to say that most of the places I go my boyfriend/fiance don't mind because he visits. The book store, hot topic, gamestop, and a couple other places.... But I have to say when he doesn't want to shop with me anymore he goes to the electronics or book store and hangs out until I'm done. LOL!!

I experienced this one time. I'm looking for a new pair of pants and we looked all the stalls and brands we could walked into a mall, we're both tired and he is already mad at me for not choosing a pants. We ended up buying a pair of pants at the other mall near that mall. But I make it up to him by buying him a shirt. I learned my lesson so the next time he got bored, I will tell him to go to the place where he can enjoy like arcade or strolling at the gadget area of the mall while I'll do my shopping. If he likes that idea but if he doesn't want me to shop alone... It's his problem already!

It depends who wants shopping for me and my boyfriend. He likes to go to supermarket so that he can buy some groceries. I feel bored sometimes and just urge him to go back home. Both of us don't like to go to the mall for clothes if no necessary. We two likes to date at parks. :) Happy mylotting!

This is a good question. I am so fond of shopping and my husband comes with me for shopping eventhough he didn't like it much. I have never noticed that whether he is bored during shopping because I will be totally involved in that. Thanks for giving me a thought. Happy mylotting.

The truth is that shopping really bores guys to tears. My boyfriend, bless him, is so patient whenever we go malling. But I know he would have given a lot to be somewhere else! LOL!

My fiance hates going shopping with me unless there is a "boys department" which usually consist of hunting, fishing, automotive stuff. I usually can con him into going with me if I tell him we will go to a restaurant that we may not have been to in awhile. I don't like going by myself all the time so I don't go as much anymore.

I think I might be the only girl in history that really doesn't like shopping. When my boyfriend and I were putzing around the shops, he asked me about a particular store. I told him there was one in the mall and we went there. But, he's not one to browse about the different stores, he knows what he wants and gets it. I guess he's your typical man. Whenever I go shopping, even with my daughter, I'll hang around the other people for a moment, then get bored and explore elsewhere. *Pleiades

My husband loves to go to the mall. Of course he is a people watcher (as I am), and he usually will just sit outside the store on one of the benches, but he actually doesn't mind going to the mall with me at all. Also, if I need his opinion, he will sit outside the fitting room and actually give me his opinion....of course, this is the man that couldn't dress himself (LOL), however, he will tell me if an outfit looks good on me or not.

My boyfriend and i barely ever go to the mall, but when we do our interests are pretty much aligned so that we have a great time together. We stop in all the book and video game stores, then split up at the food court so i can find something vegetarian and he can try to find something fattening (hes 5'6" and 147 lbs). Our favorite thing to do at the mall is look at the passing crowds and laugh at people.

After only 7 years of marrage I can tell you that the best thing to do is leave him at home (unless he is buying) and take all the time you want. Then when you get home model the clothes for him. (but even that is pointless because he most likely does not care about your clothes). Take your girl friends shopping because your boyfriend is just being nice, he most likely really hates it

My boyfriend and I love going shopping with each other. He loves to pick out clothes for me and I like to pick them out for him to try and we really have a lot of fun. We don't go often, but we are both good shoppers together and take time for each other if one of us wants to check something out so i'm pretty lucky that way
