I ask you, is there any way to shop with a guy?
The guy is obviously not afraid of the bill, just of the time he thinks we would be wasting. Think about it, he can probably have his finger sore from hitting the games, his imaginary enemy, why does he have to the legwork going round the mall?
Well, I asked some of the guys around on how they can go shopping with their girls, and they did get to spill on how it is their current dates get them to shop with them.
Be open. It is always best to tell him that you have plans of shopping, although admittedly, the urges act on impulse. Like what young Kapamilya hunk Martin del Rosario shares with a laugh, “Nood ng movie, then pag andoon na kayo sa mall, sasabihin na ‘teka, teka,’ ambush! Mapupunta na kayo sa shops.”
It would probably be best to barter on the idea of shopping, like afterwards you can watch whatever movie he chooses or eat in his favourite resto. Besides most guys do like shopping, just as Martin says, “Game naman ako doon(shopping) e, kasi gusto ko din naman yung naglalakad sa malls e.”
Ask for his opinion. Women dress up for other women. Still, you are shopping with your guy and best to make him feel involved. Consider what he has to say on clothes that you are picking out.
TV5 talent Victor Silayan shares that guys are there not only to carry your loot but to stop you from purchasing those awful high heels. “If she needs suggestions from me, go! That’s why I’m there to help her choose, that’s my role if I’m going to accompanying her.”
Who knows maybe your friends will notice that awesome dress he picked out for you.
Drop by shops he likes. If you have problems with your guy always pestering you to move quickly and make a purchase then we suggest going by some of his choice stores. It might be boutiques with comfy chairs or even stores with a men’s section, make sure that when shopping, you do stop by some of his favourite stores.
“You can take me to Uniqlo,” shares basketball hottie Chris Tiu. “There’s a guy’s section there, so while she’s taking her own time, I can do my own thing, I can do my own shopping.”
He won’t be bothering you to leave or make a purchase from the new collection as he surely is going by them as well.
Shop for him as well. So, this maybe your “me” time, but he did agree to tag along, he may be needing some stuff of his own, better to make it as a sweet gesture of appreciation to shop for him as well.
Football star James Younghusband offers some advice, “It’s good to go shopping for the guy as well. Go shopping for some guy stuff, plan out or balance out women’s shopping with men’s shopping then that’s okay.”http://www.interaksyon.com/lifestyle/how-to-shop-when-youre-with-your-guy
