I don't know about you, but i'm not a shopping person. Ever since i was a kid my mom had a hard time buying me clothe. I hated getting undressed, trying stuff on, getting dressed and doing it over and over. What a pain. Now i go shopping and i know exactly what i want, so it's in and out of the store as quick as possible. Same at the grocery store. I had a friend that read every label of every can. Oh boy that was a long shopping spree. How about you?

I love shopping alone. But I hate shopping with my mom. We can never agree on anything! I shop quickly when I'm alone too. =]

Hello srbollar, Well, I like to go shopping with someone, except for my mother. We have different taste on many things. I have been out shopping with her, and I never enjoy, it is because she seems to choose what should I buy. Discourage me, if I like something she didn't like. Aside from that, she is very meticulous at all things. I can understand, she just want to buy the best she would not regret, but I feel bored and tired watching her while checking the items she wants to buy, if that is a dress, she would check if it has stains, she would check if it is properly sewed, she would check how thick it is, and even stretch to make sure it does not easily torn. Sometimes, the saleslady would give us a mean look.

Hey sconi! I am not someone that you would want to shop with! No one likes to shop with my so I try to go alone! I make my boyfriend/roomate go grocery shopping with me once a month and he hates it! He said I take way to long (and he is right) but it needs to be done. I make a list, but I still take at least 2 hours or more! I know the store layout too so I just don't know why it takes me so long. I am shopping pretty much for the month. He will pick up stuff that we need once a week, but the bulk of stuff for the house I get in the monthly trip. When I go for other thing like clothes or other items I will usually go with one of my friends or alone. That way I can take my time. I really don't like to shop unless I really need to get something. But something happens to me once I get into a store. I just can't get out!lol

I'm not a shopping person either - and I HATE buying clothes! I will never use changing rooms, so I tend to buy large, loose clothing (sometimes even men's things) which I know are going to fit without needing to be tried on. As soon as our area has online grocery shopping, that's what I'll be doing! My husband is even worse then me - he gets claustrophobic in shopping malls and goes stark, staring apeshit!

I don't like to go shoping when i am unhappy, for when i step into the supermaket, i can't stand so many stuff that crowd me and ask what i want to buy. They will intrucduce all kinds of goods to me and try to persuate me to buy them. The first time i met it is ok, but many time as the same, you will think that they are somehow cheating me.

I used to love shopping, but now I really do not like it. The shops are too crowded, everthing is too pricey and I hate the queues. Well I think this must be why I have gone off it so much these days. If I need to go shopping now I am in and out very quickly.

I'm a terrible shopper. If I need to buy something I go and buy it and then I'm straight out again. My fiance on the other hand loves shopping. She can't get enough of it, she could spend all day everyday at the shops..and doesn't even necisarily have to buy anything to enjoy it. It's one of the biggest things that we clash on as I can't stand being dragged around the shops lol. I just have to put up with it sometimes..but i do admit to trying to get out of it a lot...Does that make me a bad boyfriend?

Hi Sconibear, shopping for groceries isn't so bad for me - at least I know what I need to buy and it's easy. Clothes is a problem - I hate queueing up to try clothes; so if I need to buy clothes that I need to try on first, I would either go during off-peak hours or shop at boutiques.

I don't like shopping at all! When I do the grocery shopping I go with my list and go to the same shop most of the time. I notice the special offers and might buy some if there are things I would use regularly but I do get it done quickly as I know what I went in to buy in the first place. Same with clothes or shoes. I know what I'm looking for and if it's not there I give up and go home. Lots of better things to do with our time rather than shopping - and cheaper too

i don't like shopping either, i don't know why. i do know that when i was a kid it didn't bother me to go shopping, but as an adult i would rather not do it. there are always too many people about rushing around and pushing and shoving... i just can't stand it lol. (oh yes, forgot to mention, yes am a woman!). my brother and my boyfriend both love shopping, who said shopping was a womans thing??

I like to shop, but not with some people. The ones that take forever to pick something out, and then are like "come on lets go" when you are trying to find something. Mostly I prefer to shop by myself, but at a place like the mall its good to have company.

When I was young I hated shopping for clothes too. I always just ended up wearing sweats and tshirts. But now I absolutely love to buy clothes. When I shop for clothing in the mall I love to take my time and browse the different stores. I always find something that I want. But with grocery shopping I don't like to take my time. Maybe because it is a chore and not very fun, but I always try to get in and out as fast as possible.

I love shopping alone and with someone but that someone should have the patience and we have the same taste or respect on each other's taste . Anyway, when I shop alone, I can go anywhere I want, try diffrent clothes and buy the clothes that I wanted and needed. In other words, no one can tell me negative things or bad comments because I hate it. Well, they started to say things when they are tired from walking and wanted to go home so I have no choice but to follow them. But when I'm with my family and we went on shopping, well there are good times also especially if they will pay the bills . But really, shopping is my stress remedy and it makes me happy!

same here anne, i also love shopping alone or sometimes with my mom & my kids except with my husband. he doesn't have the patience to roam around the mall, and stay long hours in the grocery. when he had something to buy, he buys it immediately and drive home. im not comfortable shopping or window shopping with my inlaws and friends. yeah, shopping is also my relaxation and im so fulfilled after shopping or even just window shopping! Long live the shoppers ... hehehehe

i love to shop only if im with someone because i tend to ask for their opinion specially when it comes to dresses and shoes. if i had no choice but to shop alone i usually end up with nothing or regret on something. i dont know, i cant decide on my own with regards to dress and shoes.

Hi sconibear! For me, I love shopping... and window shopping!! Roaming around the mall, looking on the displays, seeing people around who are enjoying their shop gives me joy. I also like those trying stuff that you hate.
