I like to shop alone. I hate malls and if I must go…I prefer to go alone. I always get a chuckle when I see women dressed to the nines going shopping. I usually wear something I can get in and out of quickly b/c I plan on trying things on. I try to leave my daughter at home whenever possible b/c she likes to wander and socialize and window shop…ugh.

I prefer to shop alone if I am shopping looking to buy. I take forever to decide on purchases and don’t like to feel pressured or rushed or like I am making them annoyed by how long I am taking. If I am shopping just to have a good time, then I like to go with friends.

I’m with you – If I’m going to a movie or out to lunch, I always go with someone. But I LOVE to shop by myself for some reason.

Totally agree!!  It’s so theraputic to take your time, browse around and look at everything you want and take your time… I hate to be rushed by anyone or carry on small talk while shopping.  Ugh.

I bought my wedding dress alone!!  I was kind of surprised and definitely took people on other trips, but really I know what I want and what looks good on me.  No one was available on that particular day so I just went.  I typically do clothes shopping on my on my own.

I brought my mother and a bridesmaid along once, and then two bridesmaids along once. And I went by myself about 10 times. I enjoyed going alone much more.

it depends on where i go and what mood i’m in. usually i can shop on my own but sometimes i need that extra pair of eyes to tell me whether or not i really look good in that dress. lol

I am with you, bees! If it is just for fun and I do not have a specific purchase in mind, I love to meander about with people. But if I am shopping for something specific, I tend to just go alone. I know what I am looking for. Also, sometimes I can take a long time, and I hate feeling like I making someone wait around in “my” store when they’d rather my looking elsewhere. Also, I have very bad friend influences haha. If I am trying to decide between two things, they’re the little devils on my shoulder saying “get both” instead of helping me pick one! So, yeah, if I am in the mood for a shopping spree or just picking up some new summer clothes in general or something, I will go with friends. If I need a new jacket to wear to a conference, I go alone.

me! I prefer to shop alone – ONLINE, preferably. Going to the mall and trying things on etc? That is a chore, and I don’t invite my friends to do my chores. I will also wear a shirt until it has quarter sized holes in it, so I might not be a good person to ask about shopping. I only go to malls etc with other people if i have ZERO intention of buying anything, and they’re in from out of town or something. I sound like a bundle of fun, lol.

MEEEE!!! I like to shop all by myself. I have a fairly low tolerance for shopping…..ambling around a mall all day is NOT my idea of a good time. I know what stores I like, I know what kind of clothes I’m looking for, I don’t like to poke around and look at things aimlessly, and I DON’T want you in my way. Haha!

It really depends what mood I’m in. Sometimes, like this weekend, I prefer to go alone and take my time, go to my stores and leave the store when I’m done when I want to and not have to wait around. Other times I like going with gfs  and making it in to a girl time. Sometimes I’ll even take Fiance (or should I say drag) b/c he has a good eye for what looks good on me

I definitely prefer shopping alone most of the time. There are days that I’m in the mood to shop with someone else, but usually I’d prefer to be alone!
