I like to shop alone sometimes. It's faster than having someone else with you who wants to look at different things than you like to look at. I like having my boyfriend with me shopping though because he can tell me if he likes a blouse I choose or something. Do you like going out shopping alone or with someone else?

Most of the time I shop i have my son with me. There are other times i am alone and wish someone was with me. In times like that i get on the phone and talk to someone. THat way I dont feel alone.

I like doing it alone because when I want to shop something then I make my mind before going to the shop that I will buy something but if I am with someone s/he would make his/her opinion on that which makes me confuse.

I don't have a problem doing both. Sometimes I like shopping by myself as I can run in get what I want and get out. But sometimes it's nice to have someone to shop with as well. I like shopping with my fiance as well he shops just like me. Get in get what we want and get out. My dad is like this as well. I for one cannot stand shopping around this time of year though. Too many cranky shoppers.

I will agree with you on this one. I love to shop alone at times also. I seem to know what i want and dont have to worry about anyone elses opinion about what i wear and choose to buy. I like the experience of being by myself and connecting with just me, myself, and i.

I don't like shopping at all. Shopping for clothes that is. I prefer to wear what I have till it literally drops off my back! I go shopping for clothes perhaps twice a year and even then I just spend a few minutes picking up whatever I see first!

[i]Hi vanonas, I love shopping alone ever since, when I am with friends, I tend to go home without purchasing anything....LOL! But, this time, I am glad that my hubby has patience though he doesn't like to shop, he can help me decide if the one I am trying looks good on me or not![/i]

Before I've become a family man, I like to go shopping alone. It just because I could go where ever I want to and I could take as much time as I want. Now, I used to go shopping with my family and I enjoy it and already become my habit. If I go shopping alone, I feel that something missing that make me uneasy, make me to hurry up and finished all the shopping and go home to my family. People do change a lot after having family. BR

It depends on the situation.I want to go shopping with somebody in my family whom I want to give his/her personal needs so I will know they will appreciate it.I also want to go shopping with my husband so that he will carry the heavy loads.I want to go shopping alone when I feel lonely,I satisfy myself seeing those beautiful displays and buy myself even a piece.

Alone alone alone.. Please let me be alone.. Shopping for me is therapeutic I like to be alone if I wanna spend 2 hours in one store than that's my business.. I can't stand to go shopping with people.. Now if I friend just wants me to go with her/him I will but not when I am shopping for my self..

Hi vanonas.. It really depends on my mood and things to buy but most of the time I like to shop with someone especially with my boyfriend. Aside from the fact that he can give suggestion of what color to buy or if it fits the dress nicely to me or things like these, he can also carry stuffs and I can roam around the shopping mall freely. He sometimes tease me that he is my shopping cart. It also gives us time to know more each other on very small details that we tend to igonore. Shopping together is a chance for me pick things that suits him best and give me an idea too of what to give as gifts on special occassions.

I prefer shopping alone because like you said having other persons with me might actually slow me down.In the future though I may try shopping with my girlfriend-lol- maybe I will get better clothes.

I find it pleasurable when I am alone shopping. Just want to be alone for I feel no hassles than when I am with someone. I can choose what I really want and find satisfaction with it. Talking through experience, when I have someone with me going shopping I feel uneasy if I buy something for me and not buy a thing for her. So it would result to a additional budget.What I do is to plan for my shopping time that I am alone. For sure with the limited budget I have I am sure I can buy those important stuffs much likely needed by me and my family.What do you think with my shopping style?

I like shopping alone because I can then go at my own pace. If someone is with me I feel like I am rushing them and vice versa if I am browsing. i just feel more relaxed by myself.

It depends on what I am shopping for. If I am grocery shopping then I am a loner. I like to get what I want and get out with no distractions LOL If I am just having a fun shopping day then I like for friends to be with me so we can have a good time. There is never a day that I like for my husband to go shopping with me! He hates to shop and I hate to take him! Works out pretty good for us!
