ebay IS addicting! I think ecause it is an auction site. People like to know if they got a great deal on something. I think people like seeling that they paid such and such amount while the other person on the same item paid more. Makes ya feel good. Also i think it sorta brings out the caveman in people..you bid..someone outbids you...you bid again just to squash that person's bid! How many times have you seen someone place a bid and say something like take that! or what ya going to do now? People tend to take the bids and bidders very personal!

Yes ebay can be addictive. I have used ebay for a fair few years now and if I bid on anything I always set a limit on the price and if it goes above that, then I will look for something else. Yes I think the excitement does play a big part in the site being addictive.

Yes, ebay can be addicting. I LOVE it! I have bought and sold on ebay for about 5 years now. I have to stay off of it or I will buy too much. LOL However, what I do is...if I see something I want to bid on, I set myself a limit right off and I will NOT go over that price limit no matter what. That is the only way I can do it. LOL I love ebay. I get a lot of my kids' clothes on ebay. I got my son a pair of jeans with matching shirt and jacket the other day for 8.99 (including shipping)! The outfit is practically brand new. Can't get better than that! LOL

eBay can be very very addictive, especially when you first discover the delights of online auctions. It is very easy to get carried away with the excitement of a bidding war, and, like many others, I have been caught up in trying to outbid others. It can work out very expensive too, unless you are tough and stick to your maximum bid. It's fun though :-)
