Shopping with a woman is often a man’s greatest fear. Women are known for making men carry their multitude of shopping bags, which isn’t hard, but it sure is annoying. Other guys look at you like the poor sap you are for getting yourself sucked into shopping with her when she seems to be on a warpath. Contrary to what you might have heard, shopping with a woman can actually work out in your favor. It isn’t as bad as all the other guys are making it out to be.
Choose Outfits to Play Up Her Assets
Even if you couldn’t care less which designer made her shoes or what the name of the her dress is, you know what looks good on her. Let’s be real. You probably have a favorite dress of hers purely because it’s short and shows off her great legs, or because it’s low cut and makes staring at her tits that much easier. Well, if you go shopping with her, you can help her choose outfits that you’d like to see her in. Without letting yourself get roped into sitting dutifully outside the dressing room while she tries on 20 different items of clothing, you can guide her towards what you think will make her look good. You don’t have to be fashion-conscious yourself, so don’t start worrying about studying up on what’s in right now for women’s clothes. You just have to know what looks good on her and tell her your opinions, and it’s almost a guarantee that she’ll pick something you liked.
Make Sure Money Is Saved
If the two of you have a serious relationship and your budgets are each other’s concern, going shopping with her will also ensure she’s not going absolutely insane and spending all her money on clothes. When women go shopping, the results are often disastrous, and the money you wanted to use on a new television or a new computer is suddenly manifesting in the closet in the form of six new dress and three new pairs of shoes. You don’t have to be a controlling jerk to try and limit the amount of money spent on new and unnecessary impulse-purchased clothes. You just have to be there to gently guide her along and remind her that there are other things to pay for besides clothes.
A Date and a Gift
Shopping can be a date and a gift all rolled into one; killing two birds with one stone. It’s a nice, laid-back date for the two of you to go on, maybe going out to a romantic dinner after you get some shopping done. In addition to that, though, it can be a gift. If you’ve been wanting to treat her to something special, now’s your chance. Instead of the typical doubts and “do we really need that?” you can get her that new pair of shoes she’s eyeing and treat her to a nice present.
