why do people take hours to shop or buy 1 or few items? especially when they drag you along.

Never had this problem. If I had to guess, indecisiveness and niggardly shopping habits are to blame.

I'm lucky I'm dating someone who takes like 10 minutes max to shop. I can't stand being at a store for hours to buy one thing. My mom spends like 3+ hours at any clothing store and 99.9% of the time she doesn't buy anything. It's annoying as hell. I guess she thinks I enjoy it /shrugs

I plan everything I need to buy beforehand so I can just grab it and go.

Why do women take 5 hours to get ready? Just happens I guess. I usually go with a few items to get and only takes like 30-40 minutes.

It really depends, because I can be like that either way, if I know what I'm going in for, it will be only like 10 minutes at most in there, but if I just go into a game store not sure what to buy, I may spend like an hour in there before I decide what to get, usually trying to make jokes about some of the products and keep casual conversation going to try to make them not as bored.

I usually go to the grocery store with my mother for some extra food, but she always takes forever to shop, just for a single item. Will pick up one item, decide what she wants for 10 minutes, pick something else, and then just go back to the first one.

You know I don't mind tagging along, but in most cases hell no.

I like to take forever when I plan on buying something I'm really going to want, so if you like standing there waiting for 30- 40 minutes be my guest. If it's a grocery run, that's like fuck all, 10-20 minutes max. Clothes, it depends, if I just want some new shirts I'll go and find some cheap cool looking ones, or just go to concerts and buy my shirts being a man is pretty awesome in terms of shopping, but watching other people shop, I dunno man, makes me cringe sometimes, and i'm sure I make others do the same.

I guess you can say it's productive me time

I refuse to go shopping with anyone else unless it's to a bookstore, figure store, or a game store (whether it be video or board games). I hate going clothing shopping so there'd be no reason for me to bring anyone else along because they'd take longer than me. The last time I was nice and went with my mother, she complained that I didn't even look at anything. I go around the racks to see if anything sticks out to me, and if it doesn't then I don't even touch anything. It takes me less than five minutes in a store. She's the kind of person that goes in, points out everything she considers ugly, makes fun of it and then leaves three hours later with nothing. I can't stand it.

I think I am in love with you..that or I am stunned there are women out there that do not insist on wasting an entire day in some godforsaken mall or store.

And to answer OP, 'cause they are assholes it is the only explanation. From clothing stores to gun stores if you're spending more then five minutes in the store you are an hipster asshole who should rethink their life choices.

I fucking despise shopping. I buy everything online that I can and if I must go to the store for something I am out of there as quickly as possible. Mother forced me to buy shoes once and she was absolutely appalled when I was already home within an hour--3 pairs in hand. I refuse to go to multiple stores. I can't fucking handle that shit. I am there for a reason. I fulfill that reason and I am fuckin' out of there. The only place I drag people is out. I took after my Father the most out of my siblings in that respect.

I'm so focused on leaving I usually forget to grab a cart and have my arms full walking to the register--almost every single time.

I used to hate shopping until I started cooking for myself. I'm one of those people that will take hours.
