My family's different, even though I'm a guy, my parents always want/encourage/force me to have a gf who is rich or at least can bring money to the family... I hate my parents.

I just don't like going out.
I easily get homesick. Like, at the very moment my foot steps out of our house's door.

if it's like with someone around 20 or less, then i won't mind go shopping... but seriously, going with my parents shopping is just like hell - - i would prefer staying in the house.

I thought this topic was about living with materialistic family
well, my parents are REALLY materialistic
i clearly remmember when my mom told me "Yoy already have an own cellphone, computer, tv and ipod, what more do you want? nothing, right?" That made me really sad.
That's why when i was in elementary school, i never gave my parents days ( father's day/mother's day) the presents we made at school... because i was always afraid they would say: i dont want it... back then i really envied my classmates... i just couldn't write in the card a single "i love you" or "you're the best dad ever" and if did, i didn't show it to my parents... i just threw it away when i got home

I can say that my family is a bit materialistic because we can afford to do so and we're enjoying the fruits of our labors. Moreover, life is short.

Shopping, in general, doesn't make you materialistic. Regardless, I agree that it's kind of depressing to go on a trip only to end up shopping. A good trip should have a balance between both shopping and recreation.

But as far as the topic of "living with a materialistic family" is concerned, I'm probably not to privy to such since I personally believe that my family isn't materialistic to begin with. I guess it's safe to assume that a family that is materialistic has it's own share of materialistic members, who may or may not be aware of their materialistic drives, mind you.

Yes. My father died last year and I was left under the care of my sycophant relatives. All they want are material possessions and use this as a means of calibrating your overall character.

Sounds Like My Mum...
She's A Materialistic Woman.
She Loves To Shop & Drags Me Along.
I Prefer Online Shopping, Not Getting Up
& Staying In The Comfort Of Your Own Room.

Yes We Are Materialistic Family.

I don't really hang out with my family, so I wouldn't know. But it would be fucked up if you go to Europe and all you
do is shop. There are so many things to see, rather than shop.
