Do you like to go shopping alone?

I like to go shopping. When shopping for dresses, I prefer to go alone. But when shopping for groceries, I like to be accompanied by my children or nieces. Often I brought someone with me when buying clothes and shoes and got negative responses when I made a choice. From now on I prefer to go shopping alone as I do not need others opinions for my choice. What about you?

When I go shopping for clothes or even gadgets,I like to go shopping with a friend or with one of my daughters. It is part of the outing to go to a coffee shop and rest my feet while we talk. I don`t my shopping for groceries alone though as I know the super nearby very well and can buy my groceries alone in a jiffy.

To tell the truth, I like going shopping alone. Because I can try everything I like and I want.

I love to shop as well and when i shop for clothes or shoes i almost always go with someone like my mom or hubby. I like to go with someone like them because they have more style sense and fashion sense then i do. Also my mom will be honest with me and tell me if some thing looks bad on me or good on me or fits well hubby does the same so i like to go with someone. When i go grocery shopping i love to go with my hubby so we both can pick out what we want. Also my hubby is the chef of the family so i go with him to tell him what i'd like him to cook. Also to me going with someone is better than going alone and more fun. Tho id rather go by myself if i had to than not go at all , but going with someone to me is so much better.

Hi friend, most of the time i will go shopping by alone, some times i will go along with my wife and kids and they don't pass negative comments about my choice, in fact they don't interfere in my decision, so there is no problem in going shopping for me

I'm pretty much the opposite of the way that you are. When it comes to shopping for clothes, I would rather have someone with me so they can give me their opinions of how things look on me and such. However, when it comes to going to the grocery store, I would much rather be alone because I know that when I go to the grocery store with my children they are going to do nothing but beg me to buy things for them that weren't on my shopping list.

Yes I like for shopping go alone because my husband never ready to go with me he told take a key and vehicle and go. But some time I go with my MIL. Not go alone everytime specially if purchasing personal thing like inner cloths or cosmatices then go alone but when buying cloth then go with any family members

Not actually. A reason behind that comes from the fact that I have a very poor choice and the things liked by me are often not so supported by others. So I rather prefer taking someone along with me whenever I go for shopping. Apart from it you do not really enjoy shopping if you are doing it all alone. So I would drop the idea of shopping I am asked to go alone.

I don't mind shopping alone, but I prefer to do my clothes shopping with a friend or with my husband. I think that it is nice to have company and discuss the the clothes that we see. It doesn't bother me if my friend doesn't like the clothes that I buy or make some negative comments about it. If I like the clothes I will buy them. I wouldn't say that I never listen to advice from my friend. I listen to the things that my friend has to say and sometimes I change my mind, but if I have decided to buy some clothes I will buy them no matter what my friend says.

Depend on what I am shopping. For buying dress or dress material it's better to be accompanied by other. Because while buying them we can have an opinion from them that how we look i.e. if we wear those cloths. While buying grocery or electronic or electric appliances, it makes no difference if I am going alone or with someone.

I hate to shop so I would rather go alone. I just want to get what I want and get out, and if someone is with me it seems to take longer.

Velentina, i always prefer to bring along another person whenever i go shopping for clothing. It is because i want another second opinion before i make my purchase. I tried not to waste my money into buying item that is not suitable to me. Seems like, you are totally different from me, regarding your shopping preference.

Good for you that you can make your own choice when it comes to clothes. As for me, it is really a very hard thing to do. I really can't easily decide when choosing clothes, I always have someone to be with me when I buy one so I could ask them if it looks good on me or not. But, I could do the grocery alone because I always buy the same things that I needed in the grocery.

Of course not! I just can't go alone. Shopping with my daughter is really fun as her suggestions are mostly helpful and sometimes I take others to carry my shopping bags. :)

I hate shopping alone, I would like to shop with my sister the most becaue we can comment on each other's choices freely not like with friends that we need to be careful of what we say considering they're friends not like real sisters(at least it is how my sister and I look at it). My sister and I have alike tastes so we like to go to the same places to shop and we can give ideas to each other. But since I have moved to another country, I started to shop alone... I hated it so much, I guess I accepted the fact that I have to shop alone and it is what it is.

When i'm gong food shopping I like to do that alone because I can get in there get what i want and browse the store with not having to rush because the person with me doesn't want to stay in there anymore. I do my food shopping at walmart so I like to walk the whole store and browse their stuff. But When I go clothes shopping I like going with my sisters or my boyfriend because that gets boring going alone and it gives you someone to talk too. I like getting opinions on stuff I buy but sometimes their opinion can be annoying too. My sisters don't like my style of clothing half the time but I figure it's my body I'm the one wearing it I can wear what I want too. Everyone has their own style of clothing, you don't have to all look the same.

I love to go shopping alone, I can save time and money lol. actually when you have companion both of you will wait one another of what your choices and what her wants, so better be in my own way . If ever I have companions I split with them and told them that we will just see in one place at a designated time,because I'm so meticulous in shopping going to one cubicle to another and I love shopping in a discounted/ sale price while some of my friends are not.

Before I like to be accompanied by someone but now, I've tried shopping alone, I guess it's less stress and I don't have to worry if someone doesn't want to walk or bored of following me. I hate it when my bf angry at me cause I visit almost store that I want to look at.

When I am single I preferred to go shopping alone because I want to buy everything I want without hearing any bad comments from my friends or relatives. But now that i am married I always go to shopping with my husband because he has a good taste in clothes and knew the lastes trends in fashion. Being around him when chossing clothes it really makes me feel comfortable because I know he will choose the best and right clothes for me.
