Shopping with a friend!

Philippines
March 23, 2013 6:07am CST
I am so close to this black friend of mine that we decide on things so spontaneously. Sometimes he just calls me in the afternoon to have coffee when the weather is good. I would do the same if I am bored in the evening to just have one beer. His girlfriend is also the coolest who has her own set of friends so she would have her own girls night out then we guys go on our own. This afternoon, we are going to buy some speakers. I have been telling him I needed one so finally he said he goes with me or else I will never do it. He also needs to upgrade his current speakers anyway. The mall is a little bit outside of the city that is why one must not only just buy one item. Going there is also always better if you've got company. But shopping with guys is a lot simpler than with ladies or your girlfriend especially for the basic needs. We were three guys going out for coffee on the mall when we all saw that the jeans were on sale. We immediately dived into the shelf full of different brands and styles. In just a matter of 30 minutes we already found what we wanted. All of us bought two to three pairs. Then we continued the afternoon chatting and eating more. But ladies eyes should not be underestimated. Gay guys as well are something else when it comes to shopping.

I like to shop as well but usually don't really like to go with ladies. Often times it is true that women usually takes longer in stores than guys. With us guys we tend to get in, get the item, and then get out.

I like shopping with my man because he will not rush me at all. he will wait and wait no matter how long. if he is shopping for himself he will take me and let me pick out stuff that he could get on sale and that he likes as well as I like.

A man's tolerance is really tested when shopping with his woman. Women could stay in the department store for a the whole day. I would usually go to a place and wait for my x to finish and would pick the goods she took. But a man should stand by her lady no matter what, especially during shopping. So men out there, patience, patience, patience. Your woman would love you more if you understood this. It is a girl thing. There are also things a woman has to understand about men's peculiarities.:)

I love to go shopping, but I like to go shopping by myself, I like to go to the malls, and go from store to store, looking at different items, seeing what I want to buy, and them when I see what I want to buy, them I get it and after all that walking around at the mall, I go to the food court, and get some thing to eat, and that after I eat I so back shopping again, to see something else I want to buy, then after all that walking around,I catch the bus and go home.

Some things, I would like to go shopping alone. I like going to stores and look for what I want first. When I have seen the choices then I would ask for a second eye. A girl or a gay guy could explain the reasons why i should or not take it. A guy friend would just say," if you like it then take it". So it really depends. Going to a technology store was really great having another guy helping me out.:)

If I shop alone, I could be out of the mall with everything I need in less than an hour. I really do not want to be going through each store. As soon as I found something that pleases me, I buy it right away. It only takes me a lot of hours to decide if my sister in law comes along coz she would be criticizing my choices. So to get back on her, I would ask her to try on as much clothes as I can see. Well actually, I am just making fun of her.

Oh geez, I don't know what to say about this. I have tried so hard to like to shop, either alone or with people. I only like comic book stores or computer stores. I am one of those that runs into the Salvation Army and picks up a pair of jeans for 2.90 and runs out the door. What you say is true, I just am a Salvation Army Store shopper, lol.

I love to shop with my girls, we have a good time, window shop, try things on, eat, chat, and just get to know each other and spend time together we don't always have time for.

I agree, shopping for men, at least for my husband, dad and brothers are so simple and so fast. They go in a store, get what they want, then go home. Us girls would spend hours going from shop to shop, trying on items and finally selecting the one we thought we love best.

I love to go shopping with both male and female friends. Guys seem to know they want, go in and get it without real thought to what it cost or comparing prices. Female friends are more into comparing prices, best bang for the buck and shopping takes longer. I also enjoy shopping by myself so I don't feel rushed and I can go to the stores I want without having to worry about the other person. When I am shopping with other people, I'm pretty respectful of their time and what they want to do while we are out.
