Weird... recently I posted a question asking this same question but the scenario was a coffee shop instead... the majority said that if they saw someone alone studying in a coffee shop, they would think they were a loser... what difference does it make LOL WTF

  • B, they buy whatever they want to buy or maybe they are just browsing around and window shopping, looking for any good deals and discounts or sales and then make in formed decisions as to what they will buy when they come back later. It could be just to check stuff out after they had a long day at work or after dining out.

    WTF? Someone studying alone at a coffee shop makes them a loser? That makes no sense, not everyone studies in a group and neither should or must they study in a group in a coffee shop.

  • I personally dislike shopping with other people and prefer to shop alone when I need new stuff so seeing someone shopping alone wouldn't even phase me... like, it wouldn't be a thing I even registered in my head as something to notice. So I wouldn't think anything at all about it.

    • It's funny, we tend to feel like everyone is watching us and noticing everything we do when we are in public and it just isn't true. Most people aren't even gonna take note of your existence in public. The only time anyone will take note is if you're doing something that draws attention, like something super weird or causing a scene, or if they find you attractive.. but even then, most people who check you out if won't remember you... if they see you again 25 minutes later they'll check you out again and not even recall having seen you before.

  • I usually shop, watch movies at the cinema, and dine at restaurants by myself. And I don't really give a hoot about what people think.

  • If I'd spotted the other question about the coffee shop scenario, I'd have said the same thing as well. Although, there aren't many people who study in a coffee shop- maybe it would've been more even if you'd said that person was having a drink alone in that coffee shop instead...

  • I go to the mall a lot and I have seen many women shopping on there own, I think nothing of it.
    I also see mall walking workout people. They walk in the mall because its real hot outside or it could be raining.

  • I voted B

    I sometimes shop alone and other times with friends. I see many people shopping alone so I don't think anything of it.

    I'd hate to be dependent on other people if I wanted to go shopping.

    Sometimes my commitments don't permit me to go shopping with other people, so at times I have no choice but to go alone.

    I love to go shopping with friends too, because I enjoy having a coffee together , and chatting to catch up

  • I always shop alone, because I'm so damn picky and I have to browse through 30 stores before I find the perfect shoes or whatever I'm shopping for. The last time I went shopping it took me four hours. So, you could say that shopping with me is pretty damn annoying.

    • Because those things are required to spend your own money at the store.

    • Show All
    • So, how many people do I need to have by me at all times to be considered "normal"?

    • @Kurmo Just one is ok, if it's a girl or at least 2 if they're boy.
