Do you prefer going shopping alone or with a company?

I prefer doing shopping alone for one simple reason.If I have a company I feel really stressed because I do not want to make people waiting for me to finish my shopping.So I prefer being alone.

well it all depends if its just going to the shops and just buying this and that or doing a proper shoping. If its for the weekly shoping I hate to go with someone else I have to stop and wait and they have to stop and wait and I am bored and I want to finish my shoping and all that. I like going shoping with my mother or my sister no matter what we are shoping for, but with friends I hate it.

It's a matter of what I'm going to do. For example, if I wanted to buy or shop casually, I'll go with company, just for the sake of socialization or company. But if it's something like supplies (or other mundane objects), I'd rather shop by myself because I take forever. I'd rather have the solitude and peace to think about what to buy.

Sometimes I don't mind going shopping with someone else, more for the fun social side of things but if I am seriously looking for clothing for something special I prefer to go on my own so I can take the time and go to the places I want to go and try things on at my ease.

sometime,going shopping with others can waster you time,sometime you hate to wait your company so long to watch the clothing you don't want to buy.

I prefer to shop alone. I'm very picky and would go to all the shops before buying clothes or stuff that I like. :)

I'm like you. I prefer shopping alone. I like browsing. Comparing items, prices, etc. So, it takes time and I like doing it alone without interruption.

I prefer to shop alone since i don't like it when i have to constantly think if my companion is already bored or if i am taking a very long time to choose what i want to buy...but if someone asks me to help him or her shop... i would gladly oblige...

I have always preferred to do my shopping by myself. I'm a "piddler" and like to take my time picking out my purchases. I very rarely return any purchase, because I have thoroughly made up my mind before I spend any money. Most people would not want to shop with me (especially my husband) because I take too long. My son, however, used to love to go shopping with mom because I would spend a lot of time in the electronic department. Actually I prefer gadgets and gizmos to shopping for clothes any day of the week.

Most of the time I want to shop alone. But it also depends on the person I'm with that it becomes more enjoyable to shop with somebody. For me, I like to shop with my sister, we have the same taste and share ideas what best to buy. I'm comfortable with her and feels no pressure whatsoever.
