    Default Is shopping relaxing to you?

    Title says it all...
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    Nope. I can tolerate two hours or so comfortably. Then I can't look at anything anymore, it's like there are too many choices, too many decisions ... there's just no pleasure in it. I mean, you go to buy shampoo even, why do we need 100 different kinds? It seems almost insane!

    I love amazon.com - I buy even ordinary stuff there so I don't have to waste my time trying to find one thing in the ginormous grocery and department stores! That's way more relaxing to me.

    Not particularly, I find it exciting for a couple of hours then I get stressed and overwhelmed.

    It depends. I love bookshops and find them very relaxing.

    Clothes...historically I haven't found it relaxing. If I'm in the mood it can be fun, otherwise it can be stressful and exhausting. But these days I buy more clothes online; the reality of being a six foot tall woman. I've found a couple of websites that work great for me, so...

    I live in a big city with great shopping, but it can get frustrating if a lot of it just doesn't work for you. As far as just going out and browsing I'd probably rather do that these days with accessories - bags and jewellery.

    Yes, and shoes.

    Talking about this with my wife (eNFj). She admits the effectiveness of retail therapy when she is down. I enjoy the weeks or months or researching a piece of gear and comparing/contrasting before I finally make a purchase. She likes the impulse buying.

    Exciting- usually.

    Relaxing- usually not.

    It can get stressful sometimes, but usually due to other circumstances complicating the shopping. And most of the cool stuff happens to be online....

    Hell no. Nothing I hate worse than a crowded retail outlet. Noise, "mall zombies", kids... yech. I'm strictly about getting in, getting what I need and getting out. I will say that this is the reason I buy most of my formal clothes at Nordstroms: the service is exceptional - I get clothes that look good, that fit right and it happens with remarkable speed (I got tricked out for a wedding - soup to nuts - in 65 minutes once). The extra cost is well worth it.

    I'm a huge fan of internet shopping. Browse, find what you want and in a few days it arrives with no crowds or annoying sales people. Sure a very nice, quiet bookstore can be a treat but that is hardly shopping. It's more of a place to hang out and those kind of independent shops are dying fast.
