Many would say that women take lots of time shopping. But i have seen ladies doing quick shopping as well. I have seen many men shop faster. So i just thought why not have a debate ion this in mylot. Share your views and experiences. Lets see what we can conclude. If you feel somebody takes more time also state why they take so much time for doign that, so that we analyse?

lets not take it seriously. it is just a casual discussion. this is not to hust anybody's feelings. as mentioned earlier there are many ladies who do shoping faster and there are many men who shop slower. so all conditions apply here. we are just discussing soem personal experiences or opinions.

I would guess that men, most men shop faster then women do but woen shop a lot more thouroughly then men do. Most men like to get in and get out not paying attention to sale prices or making sure they get everything they need and getting exactly the item they need. It is good to be fast sometimes but it is better to be more efficient and through with your shopping too.

I think it is the men who shops fastest. Because women are more fashionable. It took them a lot of times before picking the right thing for them.

thansk for the response. yeah that what i have told in the previous response above. i feel trhat women are more concerned and that drives them to be more keen on buying the best (as far as possible). this results in more time consumption.

I know that between my fiance and I, he is in and out a lot faster than I am. He tends to go in and not compare prices just gets what he wants and he is out. Then there are the times when he will go in and take forever and that is usually in tools or t-shirts LOL he has me pick out his pants. I don't think a lot of men have the patience that we do. I as a woman, like to take my time and make sure everything is going to fit as it is a bit of a drive for us to go to the bigger stores. When I take my kids in for school supplies and other things, he usually stays home.

do you think that patience is the difference between the two genders when it comes to shopping? i am a man and i don't fully agree with you. i dont' spend lot of time shopping but i spend a lot of time planning. lots is done in the mind and when i enter the shop i am almost semi clear what i exactly want. so might be thats why i spend lesser time in the shop. but women are more oncerned about what they buy. they see whether it is the best or is there anything whih is better than the item they have selected? might be i wish to call it passion to be more beautiful, so the interest to do it more better makes them do it much slower. i believe i am correct in gauging the situation.

Hi there sivanj! Personally, I think in general, men shop faster than women. They spend less time in the department store and/or mall. However, it also depends on the individual. Like there are women who shop faster while men taking their time and vice versa. It may also depend on what they are actually buying. I have observed that when it comes to gadgets, men would spend considerable time shopping. But for clothes, bags and shoes, I have observed that women spend more time shopping.

I hate shopping. And if I have to go to the Mall I just quickly pick up whatever I need and wait for a chance to run away from the crowd. I hate to go with people who take a long time to shop.

As per my knowledge Men do faster shopping than women. If a women goes for shopping she will enter few deferent shops for best price, again she will be causious about what color it should which is cheeper and so she will spend time in bargaining to... But a man Just enter the shop, ask for the price [he will have patience to go for other shop and check for best price] and without doing a bargain he will buy goods and returns happily.... Hope my response made some sense.

Mostly men are fast shoppers. If they like something, they pick it up and dont go on looking for something better or cheaper. Women in general see something they like, will keep it in mind, and then keep on looking to see if they can find somethng better, and if not, return t o the first one picked out. So, definitely men.
