Hi, reading the similar things with friends here, i'm interested to start this new discussion Do your man want to shops for you? It can be any man, your husband, boyfriend, kids or even yourself (as man of course) willing to shop for women (mother, girlfriend or wive)? it is commonly for man do accompany her woman shopping, but when she cannot going to shop, do you (man) is willing to shop for her? it means shopping alone, buying some daily needs and especially buying girl things ...

He's been helping me to choose the right clothes for me or whatever style of clothes that suits my personality.. likewise, i'm doing the same thing for him.. i've been her fashion adviser for years, i always comes with him and help him in choosing the perfect casual clothes, formal clothes, etc..

Father of my kids somtimes brought shirts for me whenever he's out of town as he know i am fond of collecting any kind of native shirts or any native made stuff. I don't want him to accompany me when i go mall for window shopping cause he 's always in a hurry. But to buy groceries ..yes we go to supermarket and we enjoy doing this activity together then we normally ate prior going back home.

My man will not mind shopping for me but I'd rather just it myself because most of the time I don't get satisfied with a man's choice. I know my type more than anyone else so I don't allow anyone else to shop for my personal thing. But I do allow my hobby to shop for house essentials like groceries among others but not my personal things like dress, shoes or bags. But my man loves buying undies for me and that I always appreciate for anyway he makes good choices when it comes to that.

My husband is willing to shop with or for me. Its just that he wouldn't be patient enough to actually follow a list of many items to buy in the grocery store. He is ok with accompanying me or looking for clothes with me but if he is alone, he prefers that I would just ask him to buy what I really need and not hand over to him the whole grocery list.

yaa it can ran out the money useless maybe you can say to him to go to everywhere he wants to avoid unpatient behaviour from him, and do not make a shopping list even you have it, just kept in mind and do it

my husband learned to shop for us (my baby and me). of course, he gets a list first. however, it is when he wants to surprise me by shopping, without me knowing, that i just hold my breath. most purchases would be chips and wrong flavor of juice, wrong dishwashing liquid, canned goods that we have never eaten before because it would taste bad... you name it. it's wrong. just like when my father would buy clothes for me whenever he would have his annual vacation. he buys me jewelry also: gold, silver. i never could quite understand the wrong turn a guy's mind makes when it comes to buying things. makes you wonder if they also make that wrong turn of thinking when choosing a girlfriend or a spouse. lol

at least he tries to make his family happy even if he doesn't know what to buy, you must be grateful for them anyway, comparing that they never want to buy anything dor you anymore later? appriciate them, and they keep doing it for you happily buying wrong goods is common things especially it is a new goods, that they never try, avoiding bore hehe, but i do accept any jewelery lol

Hi there! Well, what I don't like about our province is that you can't do much shopping because you have very limited choices. Anyway, my husband doesn't shop for me but doesn't mind when I ask him to when we were in Manila. Here, I haven't tried yet because the nearest mini-mall is a thirty-minute ride from our home and the ride is tiring.
• Indonesia

thirty minute riding?with what?bicycle, a motorcycle, or a car? if riding a car then it is far enough ... it is doesn't matter if you have only limited choice as long as he is willing to shop for you alone, so he can help you to avoid tiring

I do shop for my wife from time to time. But she is nice enough to save me the embarrassment of buying the wrong kind of girlie stuff and have to go back to make the changes. This is the problem with men. They don't use the stuff, they don't understand what each and every brand difference is. Cos to them, them girlie stuff is the same anyways. Just like a girl thinks that men's toys are all the same. So, my wife, if she does ask me to get anything, she leave me a wrapper as a sample so that I get the right things. As for marketing and stuff for the home, no problem. We do the shopping together most of the time. At times where she cannot, I will buy. At times when I cannot, she will settle. That is what being married is all about!

Yaa man usually don't pay attention carefully when shoppings, i mean they seen all the women stuff is the same your wife is clever, usually if women didn't write the list exactly or without any examples of the things, men didn't aware enough

Hi maxilimian! I am happy and lucky that my Husband is one of those who doesn't have a problem to go shops for their family or girlfriends. My Husband has done this many times from groceries to woman stuffs and he never has an issue with it. The only concern he has sometimes is if he bought some stuffs and he's not sure if I'm gonna like it or not and the truth is I like and love everything that he bought for me and I'm always thankful for that.

I'm pathetic for choosing a lousy man once, so my answer is no. He doesn't shop for me nor for our child. I envy those women who has a good man to do those things to her. That's what you called super-lucky... hahahhha

I am the one who often shops with my woman. I love my woman. And I think shopping as a entermainment to some degree. Some men don't like to accompany their women. I think it is a problem of love. Love must be built on the base of common favorite, mutual regard and compromise. If either of the two don't compromise to the other one, how can they live together and build a family in the future? Just personal opinion, and hope you have a man loving you in every aspects of yours.

My husband is not interested in shopping. However, in some special occasions such as my birthday and the Valentine's Day, he will go to buy gifts for me. If sometimes I am too busy, I will ask him to buy some daily needs and he won't say no. I love China
• Indonesia
11 Mar 09
you don't have to give him order to buy gift at the special occassions right? if yes, he is caring person for you and nobody wants to ran out some important daily goods anyway

My husband will shop WITH me, but unless he is going to pick up something special for me, like flwoers or a card, he will not shop FOR me. Once in a great while, I can get him to pick up a thing or two when he is going to the store with his friends, but even that is rare because I am the bargain shopper and he ends up spending too much.
• Indonesia
11 Mar 09
i think willingness of them to shop several item is good enough, we can't forcing them to shop everything we needs to them, there's a lot of man outside doesn't want to shop for his women

As for picking up girlie things, no he won't do that! He will pick up just about anything else though! He is really good about running errands for me! He doesn't mind!

I plan to be a very lucky person, my partner is very happy to accompany me for shopping, and if for any reason I can not move, will you be very happy to go quietly for him to make just the expense. They like to go shopping in both story and advise us.

Yeah, my boyfriend often shops for me. I mean he buys some daily staffs for me by himself when I'm busy. I think he is very considerate because there are many men who are unwilling to do such kind of things for women.
