I think it's certain that women are born for shopping. It's women nature I guess. so let's conclude why we, of course men are welcome, love shopping? For me, I think, it's a process of acquiring acknowledge from other people. when you are shopping idlely, you feel you are paying for things with the money gained through your effort. So what you shop embodies your career success in certain degree. Shopping is also a good way to exercise. women can walk for hours one shop after another. In total, miles have been covered unconsciously. Third, shopping can be a sort of cathasis. you let out your emotion, your pressure. For example, I often shop wildly as if I am dumping my pocket empty in order to refill my pocket soon.

I frequently go window shopping and it's really always a good feeling, what more if you have all the money to buy the stuff you want? lol. i personally love seeing new things and how stuff are evolving. i also want to learn different things so i love discovering anything while shopping/window shopping. it's always a learning experience for me. i dont really love buying all the stuff i want/like but i am sure if i have the money to spare, i would definitely enjoy buying them too. i am more of the type who shops to release tension, to let time pass by and to learn. :D

to be frank, I really don't understand window shopping and can't stand for it. maybe I want to process what I like. I either buy what I like or try not to look at it. Out of sight, out of mind.

I strongly agree with everything you have said. Women really do love shopping. Honestly, I really don't understand the reason why. But I do feel happiness every time I go shopping. When I am sad, or when I have a misunderstanding with my boyfriend, I usually go shopping. This became an outlet for my emotions. I don't really want spending much money just to buy material things but there are times that I really cannot control the urge of wanting this activity very badly.

yes most of the women are fond of shopping since shopping can let them become more beautiful and buy them everything they fond of if they have enough money to paid the bill. but i have one friend she always bored to shopping and even when someone invite her to shopping.after go around somewhile .soon she want to back home.

Though I am found of shopping, but most of the time I end up buying some silly or useless things, which I regret after returning home. Last month I bought an expensive shirt for my husband and while I was paying, I felt regretting fearing that he would scold me for spending this much money. I paid through my debit card and transaction failed. So I had to cancel the payment and return the shirt. I was saved

Yes Magic, you are absolutely correct. I saw the women like this habitual. Whenever they got money they run for shopping. I don't know what will they do with shopping. What fun they get by shopping. I thing it is only the waste of money nothing more than that. I don't like all these at all. It is ok if it is necessary otherwise not. I will suggest personally not to spoil the money, try to save money. It will be work o future.

I think shopping is called retail therapy and it always works. When I was a university student I bought two antique dolls and some modern porcelain dolls to display. These days I go shopping for food and it is enjoyable to find tasty food. I like shopping for household items. Yes, that is when I walk for miles. I don't enjoy clothes shopping much. It can be challenging to find the right clothes. Last week I was trying to find a black cardigan but it was difficult to get one. I ran out of time because I had to go to collect my toddler son from his playgroup. The sort of shopping I adore is when I am traveling. I buy costume dolls from around the world and get presents for my mom plus my sister. Yes, I am another lady that was born for shopping.

I dont mind shopping as long as it is not too crowded. If I cannot get a decent parking spot I will drive to the next store too. If I the lines are too long I will leave too. Time is money afterall.
