- How to stop yourself being dragged around the shops…
Speaking as a woman, I fail to understand why
hen-peckedblokes are dragged around the shops. Since when has a woman wanted the opinion of a bloke, I certainly haven’t.

hen-peckedblokes always getting in the way and don’t get me started on those perving at the lingerie. If you’re gonna do it then bloomin’ well be discrete and get out of my bloody way. 😐McHamishMember

Why then, do shops insist on putting the underwear section right outside the changing room?!? They’re not perving, they’re waiting for the partners while trying to avoid looking at frilly knickers.
I once walked out of a shop with a pair stuck on Velcro on the back of my jacket.Posted 5 years ago

as you mention there is the lingerie, but you missed the excitement of a snatched glimpse of a bit of leg, naked breast or thong through the chink in the changing room curtains…Posted 5 years agomogrimMember

My then girlfriend / now wife caught me looking at the blonde next to her trying on FMBs, she’s never taken me shopping since. That was 17 years ago 🙂
So perving has its place.Posted 5 years agoadjustablewenchMember
I can’t think of anything worse than shopping, and if i can’t face it why on earth would I inflict it on someone else?! My rule when i need to buy and outfit is 3 shops maximum. I will pick the three most appropriate shops for the occasion and if I can’t find something suitable in those 3 shops I have to pick something from my wardrobe – being a woman it is fairly well stocked so this method works.
This rule is based on what i call the Meadowhall effect – you walk into a million shops all selling pretty much the same thing and all it does is put me off wanting any of it – and i walk away empty handed.Posted 5 years ago

Mrs Pondo unaccountably does actually like me to go shopping with her from time to time (by way of compensation for the time we spend doing my stuff I suppose, like looking at bikes, standing in the cold or watching motor racing on the telly), and I do try – I really, really do try – to be enthusiastic and offer an honest opinion, given in the full understanding that it will make no measuurable difference to her opinion about said jacket/shoes/hats etc.
However, as an exercise in joint endeavor and bonding, it very rarely ends in anything other than acrimony and vexation for both of us. 🙁Posted 5 years agozippykonaSubscriber
I don’t mind clothes shopping with Mrs Zip as I know what suits her and if it looks gash I will tell her.Posted 5 years ago
Curtains and lampshades I will throw a major wobble over as when I lived on my own I don’t recall having either so not really the best person to ask for an opinion.
I will not ever set foot inside a garden centre EVER.DezBSubscriber
Few years ago I was waiting outside the changing room for the wife. There were these angled mirrors on the floor, I guess for checking out your shoes… they were perfectly angled for … well when these 2 short skirted ladies arrived I just didn’t know where to look 😆 Didn’t mind that trip.
Not a problem anymore though!Posted 5 years ago
Heaven forbid someone should sacrifice some of their time engaging in an activity that their partner finds pleasurable. Relax and enjoy the smile on her face.
I totally agree, and I do try – I really, really do – but what she wants is for me to enjoy it as much as she does. And I’ll go, and I won’t complain, and I’ll try to be enthusiastic, but it just isn’t the same, and we’ll both end up having a rubbish time.
It does occasionally happen the other way round – I have never and will never ask her to come to stuff that she really doesn’t want to, but sometimes she’ll want to come so that we can do it together. Case in point is the local cycling club have a friday night track league that I was really looking forward to going and having a look at, as I was (and am) thinking of joining. I knew she wouldn’t be interested, but she insisted in coming anyway – we had five minutes of sighes and “this is really boring” before a spikey discussion about whether I should stay or not (she wasn’t going to) and then a quiet drive home and night in silence in front of the telly.Posted 5 years ago
