So she technically isn’t my girlfriend we haven’t agreed that yet, we are still fairly new into this thing about 6 months in.

Anyway she wants to go shopping tomorrow with me at a designer outlet store in cannock, am I expected to buy her the clothes or not? She hasn’t said anything to me but I don’t know what’s expected of me, iv never got this far before

Depends on the girl to be honest. Some like to be spoiled, but if she's taking you there just so you can buy her stuff I'm not sure that's going to be the best relationship, just sounds like she's using you.

If she's going just for a fun time with you then that's cute.

Depends. If you don't like paying for her then you will have a terrible time, so end the relationship. If you do enjoy paying for her, then carry on and just wait until she ends the relationship.

after 6 months you don't know if you're in a relationship?

tbh it doesn't sound like she's expecting you to buy her designer stuff, she might just want your opinion on things and maaaybe secretly hope you offer to treat her. But asking a guy to come shopping isn't usually code for be my sugardaddy it's more she might value your opinion and wanna look nice for you? it's cute. if you like her u could treat her to something small and non expensive

Depends, but I wouldn't feel you're expected to buy stuff (it is a bit of a red flag if you are imo)
Go, have a nice time, if you want to buy a small gift or item like a pair of socks or something.

Coming from a girl, asking a guy to go shopping is a cute little day out, nothing more. But if she does expect you to buy her stuff, she might not have the best intentions.

As per going most places in a relationship your essentially obligated to buy coffee and the like but not to purchase clothes. In this scenario your either just here to tell her she looks pretty or she's plans to dress you like a manequin.

When it comes to purchasing clothes for somebody in a relationship there's no one policy. Some will buy whatever they are told, some women hate a man hinting at how they should dress while others like myself will buy an item I find attractive on a woman (to varying levels of appreciation). That's something to discuss with her.

I mean expecting someone to pay for your designer stuff who isn't officially your bf is dumb.

Unless you have a significant income then I don’t think she’ll be expecting you to buy her stuff. Your a date not a charity. Just compliment whatever clothes she picks out.

Maybe buy the drinks if you stop by a cafe or something,

Could also be that she hates your taste in clothing and wants you to buy yourself new stuff.

Best thing to do in this scenario would be to see how she behaves.

If she’s proper hesitant in buying the clothes, and looks at you to pay for it, dont give in. This is how girls love using you. Money does not grow on trees to just be buying stuff mindlessly. Especially after being forced to.
