    I prefer going shopping on my own
    I'm one of those shoppers who doesn't piss about browsing, I can scan the shop quickly without having to spend hours looking at everything! Then I can get more shopping done, and faster!

    I really wanted to go shopping to see if I could pick some stuff up in the sales but don't want to go with friends because they take forever in shops I don't like and I felt like going where I wanted to. I would have gone with my sister but she's sorta 2-faced and is only nice to me when she wants to shop. My mum doesn't want to go so I'm left with going on my own. Is this kinda weird and does anyone else go shopping on their own? Just asking because I'm likely to see lots of people I know when I go.

    I never have but I'd love to. Nothing but you and the cash and the clothes. Everything and anything else is just a nuisance.

    I always go shopping on my own because I don't like feeling guilty for making people wait for me. I went to boxing day sale with my brother,he got annoyed with me after 1 hour or so when I was taking my time looking for clothes. Sometimes I go with friends when I am browsing.

    Yeah, it's not weird to go by yourself. Saves a lot of hassle sometimes. Shopping is only a social occasion if you want it to be

    Are you serious? I only go shopping with friends when I don't actually want to buy anything, because I never get anything done when I'm with people. I buy pretty much everything on my own, and I've never really thought a thing about it.

    I prefer shopping on my own. Then I can get what I want. Shopping with friends is something that I see as a social outing rather than to actually buy something.

    Sorry I just can't abide it when people get so self-concious about being on their own. What is the problem here? Just go on your own

    Go shopping on your own.....it means you can spend hours and hours in your favourite shops without worrying that your friends are getting bored. And I always find I end up getting what I need on my own......with friends sometimes you don't get something because they want to go somewhere else or you worry they'll be bored waiting for you.

    If you see people you know just say "hey" they wont think it weird you being on your own....in fact going shopping on your own shows confidence and independence....which would look quite cool...not weird at all

    I go shopping alone all the time! I see no big deal at all. It can be better as well, cos you get to decide exactly where you want to go and for as long as you want without being dragged about by others. Go for it :yep:

    Shopping alone can be quicker and easier. I personally prefer going with at least 1 other person, because it's nice to have a second opinion e.g. on what clothes to buy

    Lol wut.
    I haven't been shopping with other people for like 5 years due to the immense unpleasantness of such an activity.
    LOADS of people go on their own.

    I nearly always go on my own - friends persuade me to buy crap, try on rubbish, go to the wrong shops, etc...

    Sometimes I much prefer shopping on my own. I can stay in shops as long as I like and only have to go where I want to go.
    Sometimes though I do wish I had someone there with me for a second opinion, which is when it's very handy to go with friends.

    It isn't weird at all to go on your own though. Plenty of people do, and quite a few of me and my friends prefer it

    Have you seriously never been shopping by yourself? Do you seriously have to ask if it's okay?

    I worry about some people, I really do.
