          It's basically settled, Guys normally like shopping as long as they get what they need, and Women should know enough to give them a Sports or Mechanical or Science Magazine before dragging them to shop with them tongue

          The things that women shop for in the main do not interest men. That causes men to lose interest very fast. Think about it, how many time does a woman take a guy shopping for electronics where he doesn't want to be there...

          The only time he might not want to be there is if for some reason he doesn't want to spend money. Just a thought.

      cause sitting in a panty store gets them sorta turned on so they have to think about other not so pleasant things so that they don't get a chubby and get scorned by natures actions.  LOL.

      smile smile smile smile

      They just don't like it cause it's boring.  My husband seems to have no trouble going to a video game store, which I hate going with, and he hates to come to the grocery store, which I also hate.  Wait....it isn't just guys who hate shopping.

      Most men don't hate to shop. They do it all the time.

      I think there's a difference in what they like to shop for.

      And there's a huge difference in how they shop. Eg. most men like to figure out for themselves how to get the item the are shopping for. (In this way men shop how they drive, without asking for directions). For most women it is a more social endeavor.

      A few years ago I read a piece in The Economist about some one who was developing a mall for the way men shop. (Almost all malls, it turns out, are geared towards women). I just tried a Google search to see if I could find what happened to it but no luck. Would make an interesting topic for a hub.

      Men don't hate shopping, they just shop for different things.  Have you ever had to wade through acres of tractors, with a man who has no intention of buying?  Have you visited every lawn and garden store in a hundred mile radius, looking for that perfect grill?  I have, with several farmers. 

      My husband can't pass up a deal.  He and sales in sporting good shops are a financial nightmare!  I have forbidden him from visiting actions and garage sale, for the plithera of unneeded items he has brought home.  (He only listened, after taking a trailer load of action items to the dump.) big_smile

    Because of queues, because of shop assistants that don't help but hassle you, because often they have everything you don't want but not what you do, because you get to see loads of things there's no way you can afford, because it's boring and because I never have enough money for buying anything apart from items I need - and sometimes I don't even have enough for that - and it's time consuming! Yes, I hate shopping!

    In a scale of zero to ten, I would like to rate shopping as six. I don't really hate shopping because I always have a list and I'm not ashamed of looking at it in the grocery or mall. The list is a sort of  a map-guide for me and I usually do my shopping in 10 minutes (for short errands) to two hours (for buying a month's supplies). It's basically about making up your mind in buying and not regretting that you haven't bought a marked-down item because you haven't seen it. (Marked-down items are still expensive, read the books "Freakonomics" and "Undercover Economist".)
    I'm an Asian and usually salesladies are actually friendly here. I make a little chat, ask advise on what's good and the next time I come shopping, they'll be the first to offer help. That's rapport - it's good for business networking too.
    Well, people are really different but I enjoyed shopping because I only shop if I really have to buy. I usually go "window shopping" with my wife but I always buy items (for my own use) by myself. My wife is a bargain hunter, so I don't usually drag her along if I really love to buy something that's not on the bargain. But if I wanted to buy bargains, my wife's the best adviser yet.
    So, men hate shopping because of hassles that goes with it, not really the shopping per se.

    Men don't hate shopping we just shop differently than woman. We find what we need and we buy it. For instance woman buy underwear and they'll try it on and ask their girlfriends if they look good in it. A man would never try on underwear in a store and ask his best buddy how his butt looks. smile

    I guess the roles are reversed in our house.  My husband does 98% of our grocery and other shopping.  And my daughters know that if they want me to go to the mall, it must be right when they open, when there is no one there yet!  And never, ever, ever will do Xmas shopping at the mall.  The crowds make me claustrophobic.  But my husbands' favorite place other than Bass Pro Shops, is Wally World.  He could spend all day in there.  Again, it would have to be 3 o'clock in the morning for me or I'd have to be drunk! (And I don't drink!)

    shopping for most men = buying clothes.

    most guys have their set of clothes that they are comfortable wearing and it can be years old. Most men don't follow trends like "oh, that is out of style or season".

    I say most because I do know some that love shopping and I just don't get it.

    I would rather work out for an hour and still have some energy then go into a clothing store as it immediately saps the strength from me. It's not an efficient use of my time.

    I don't hate shopping in theory.

    If I had a gf that wanted to go shopping I would hardly find it boring even if she kept me there all day.

    I would probably just use the opportunity to give her the time of day and treat shopping as a serious interest of hers and a chance to love her even more by growing in an understanding of what she values and enjoys as a person.

    In my experience, you are right.. Men do hate shopping. But you know what? It could be fun if they allowed themselves to just pretend they are at a private fashion show screening.  Go to Starbucks, grab a cup of java, get comfy in a chair at your sexy shopper's favorite store, and let her put on a fashion show for you of all the great outifts she tries on.    Not only will she be excited that you are spending time with her, who knows -- she may even want to get something a little naughtier to have a private fashion show for you later.. Hmm.. gotcha thinking huh.. wink~~     Shopping with her gives you the opportunity to find out what SHE likes.  As a online shopping consultant for years, I can tell you that most men don't have a clue what women really want.  What do they want? Something they feel sexy in, something that makes them feel thin, something that makes them feel glamorous, something that makes them feel pretty or romantic --you get the idea. Once you know you're girlfriend's or wifes true desires, you will better know how to gear your purchase.  With the holidays around the corner, maybe pick out a sexy santa's helper outfit for her -- nothing too revealing, just a cute little santa dress and maybe a pair of heels. Let her get the naughty panties -- women do like to create their own little surprises too!  Check out <snipped promotional link>for some great sexy lingerie, costumes, and clubwear.

    I don't hate shopping: the necessity, just shopping: the pasttime.  What I mean is when I go shopping I know what I want, I know where to go, I get it and get out.  SAS style smile

    I've never been a fan of walking around spending 15 minutes in each shop, it may just be me but I am not comfortable just wandering aimlessly, not that everyone else is doing that but I tend to have more pressing things to do than walk around shops all day.

    Just my two cents on the subject. smile

    I'm with Edwin on this one: guys in general just view shopping completely differently.  Even in looking at things I like (books, video games, firearms & knives, camping stuff, etc) it's a look around, five minutes, leave.  Get what I need, or don't, and leave.  The taking a lot of time and spending long amounts of time looking through various choices just doesn't make any sense to me and the ADD kicks in quickly and I get bored.

    Maybe this will help answer your question!

    I hate to shop! So, why is it that my wife insists on me accompanying her to the store while she shops? I understand how wandering around the stores and finding that perfect pair of slacks that originally sold for eighty dollars and are now on sale for sixteen dollars can excite and thrill an individual, but in a man’s mind you didn’t save 64 dollars you still spent sixteen!

    Okay, I concede there’s a savings if and only if you needed a pair of slacks. Myself, I have three pair of jeans, which I wear all the time and probably a dozen other slacks that just sit in my closet so I can’t see myself shopping for a pair of pants.
    To me the prospect of fighting traffic to get to the mall then fighting to find a parking spot and finally traipsing through a myriad of stores searching countless clearance racks for just the right color, style, fit and price of a pair of slacks is torture! Now, my wife knows how I feel about this, yet she still urges me to go.

    Okay, fair enough she wants company. She doesn’t want to go alone and she wants someone she loves to be excited when she finds that treasure, to tell her how great they look on her. This I understand, but would you really want to make someone you love do something they hate? Do you think it’s right to expose your loved one to what they consider to be torture? Would I do that to her?

    Now, I spend many a night walking the beaches chasing after feeding fish in the surf. Back when my wife and I were dating she used to join me and I have to give her props because it isn’t always as pleasant as you might think. There were many a night where we stood side by side perched on slippery, jagged rocks tossing two ounce lures with eleven foot long rods into angry seas that crashed below us dousing us with a force that occasionally would buckle your knees and threaten to toss you back into the rocks.

    Of course, she doesn’t come with me anymore no matter how much I beg, even though nowadays I fish the calmer waters of the sound. Still the prospect of standing waist deep in fifty degree water casting into the dark while the gnats feed viciously on your face crawling in your eyes, ears, nose and hairline isn’t exactly appealing for anyone let alone a women that would prefer to shop! It is something I enjoy mostly alone, and even though I would love to share the excitement when that fifteen pound striper runs with my fly, I would never pressure my dear wife to do so because I know that would be like torture, you know, like shopping is to me!

    OK

    So, I hate to shop with my husband when he is looking for clothes, It is so boring.  I just can't get excited about saving $64 on a pair of men's slacks.  Yes, I see it as saving $64 and not spending $16, so that is a true gender thing.  But, Dear Me! I'd rather be shopping for me!  Selfish as it seems, shopping for someone else, with them along, is the pits.  Now when I am shopping for a gift for my husband and I am alone - I am thrilled to find and save that $64 dollars!  What an awesome purchase!

    Not the same experience though', when I am shopping with girls.  I can get excited about looking for girl clothes for anyone, with them along or not.

    On the flip, I'd rather go fishing with Pappa Blues on the fishing trip from Hell, before I would ask my husband along on a shopping trip for me.  He does not enjoy it, and it shows, and then I don't enjoy it, and it shows.  What is the point?

    There are plenty of things to do with a spouse to enjoy time together, is it really necessary to make shopping one of them?

    I don't think Men hate shopping. I have some male friends who love shopping and takes hours to even select what they want.  I love shopping too but does not take much time to pick what I want. While I am with friends who take their time to shop I end up having a few impulsive buys as well.

    As you said there are plenty of things to do with a spouse to enjoy time together, if your spouse does not enjoy it do not force him to accompany you to your shopping trips. Take someone who enjoys it along with you.

    Most men are head of their families. They have to get to shopping for their families, which is boring. So, they avoid shopping for saving their purses and send their women and kids to shopping. Shopping for a woman is not so easy. May take hours to get satisfied. The best way to avoid irritation is to avoid shopping.

    I hate shopping because I hate the crowds of people and the chavs. If I had the money I'd love to hire out a complete shopping centre all to myself and have a great time.

    I also think that people get self conscious when in situations they are familiar with. So it's a bit chicken and egg in that respect.

    I'm a woman and I hate shopping especially with other women.  They like to browse and try stuff on.  I know what I want when I go into the store and that is what I get and then I leave the store.  If I am looking for something and cannot find it, I don't waste time going to a million stores looking for the item.  I will go to 3 stores max. I have found I am more like a guy when it comes to shopping and like the lady above...it is cool to shop late when everyone is out of the store. No lines and no crying kids.

    I guess I am a strange woman because I despise shopping! I had rather be beaten to death! I can't stand going to wal-mart and seems like I am wearing out the pavement between here and there despite it all! My husband fusses at me all the time because I don't go clothes and shoe shopping without him forcing me to. I just hate it!

    Now, give me a BassPro, Lowe's or Home Depot and I am up at the buttcrack of dawn rushing anyone who intends to ride along! Those are the shopping trips that really should be a weekend event because you really can't cover all the ground that needs to be covered in one day!

    My husband, on the other hand seems to love shopping. I dread taking him with me when I go shopping because I like to grab what is on the list and hit the door. However, I tend to spend more time looking for him than I do shopping for the items on the list! I have learned to make sure that we both have our cell phones when we leave so that I don't waste an hours passing him from one isle to the next looking for him! It may seem crazy to call someone in the same store but it beats the heck out of having to get a harness and leash to keep up with him LOL. But then again, he may prefer the latter. Guess I'll have to give him an option on that one.

    My ideal week is to have at least 1 day that I can avoid any shopping whatsoever, be it wal-mart, grocery store or any other type of shopping but that is rare lol. I swear, if I could have everything I could possibly ever need or want just delivered to my door, I would never shop again! (Except, of course at BassPro, Lowe's or Home Depot!)

    I don't think women have some inborn predilection for shopping, nor do I think most men hate it.  I think it mostly has to do with social pressures and expectations.  And different people enjoy shopping for different things.  One might like shopping for clothing, another for music, another for car parts, another for art.  Not to mention different shopping styles.  One person might like going to the mall and browsing, one might like surfing the web, one might like specific outings in search of specific products.

    because as men we are only buying for our needs not just women love to stroll and then if they love it they'll buy it instantly. lols

    I have previously heard it suggested that a man will spend £2 on a £1 item he needs, and a woman will instead spend £1 on a £2 item she doesn't need....

      But what you need you use for longer, something you don't need just takes up space and money...

    Well, the thing you don't need could be a bottle of wine or a carton of ice-cream, and that wouldn't necessarily hang around for long....

    Because it's time consuming, not enjoyable at all, and in the end it removes all of our hard earned money from our wallets! Shopping bites donkey balls! mad

    The things that women shop for in the main do not interest men. That causes men to lose interest very fast. Think about it, how many time does a woman take a guy shopping for electronics where he doesn't want to be there...

    The only time he might not want to be there is if for some reason he doesn't want to spend money. Just a thought.

    What do you understand by shopping?

    Shopping basically means to examine new products to decide to buy them or not.

    Women might spend  more time choosing products (going from store to store or department) because of cultural-expectations pressure  to look perfect. And at first it might appear that women like shopping more than men because they spend more time shopping. In fact, women just need to spend more time because the many things that mean to be woman-- but this doesn't mean that they like it more than men.

    I, for example, purchase the same number of things my wife does, but I need 3 times less time than her to examine personal products than her. So one might think that my wife likes shopping and I hate it since I spend less time doing it. In fact, we both like it.

    its not that men hate shopping, it's just that men hate what we women consider shopping. spending hours trying on this and that, going to store after store. then going back to other stores again. mens shopping is straight to the point, get in get out and get back home to try out their new toys.http://picforyou.info/img/409/m08y1019dwvl/mwari23smiley.jpg
