It is an accepted fact that most girls like to shop but for most guys, shopping is actually one of their most abhorred activities. While shopping can be therapeutic and relaxing for a lot of girls, it can be stressful and tedious for many guys.
Nevertheless, it is definitely not unusual to see couples walking around in Philippine shopping malls. This means that despite the difference in how they feel about this particular activity, it is something that a couple can do together without much hassle and difficulty between them. Below are some tips for you the next time you feel like dragging your boyfriend to a shopping center in the Philippines.
- Shop when both of you are in a good mood. Shopping may be therapeutic for you but if you are in a foul mood you will not be good company for your boyfriend, making this activity even more undesirable for him. Hence, it is better to go shopping with him when both of you are in a good mood. Never ask him to go shopping when he is not feeling too okay.
- Have a plan. Although most girls shop without any particular plan, having one when shopping with your boyfriend will make this more bearable and predictable for him. If you are the type who does not like planning where to go on your shopping trip, make an exception when you are with your boyfriend. It will help him deal with the tediousness of shopping if he has something like an itinerary.
- Strike a deal. To make it fair to your boyfriend, strike a deal with him wherein you will do an activity that he likes in exchange for shopping with you. This way, you both get to do something each of you enjoys and you get to do them together. This will help you enjoy together even if the activities you will be doing are not something you both enjoy at the same time. Striking this kind of deal with him focuses more on spending time together instead of on the shopping itself.
- Stop asking for his opinion. Fight the urge to ask for his opinion every time you try something on. Keep in mind that for most guys, an empire cut top is not so different from a balloon top and that emerald green, forest green, moss green, and olive green, are all just ‘green’ for him.
