Have you ever gone shopping with your husband? Or have you ever thought of asking your husband to be your shopping buddy? I know when most women are asked, “Who’s your shopping buddy?” they surely would reply, “My girlfriends!”
Well, for me, it’s my husband. Ever since my sisters went abroad to work and stayed there for good, my husband became my shopping buddy. After our wedding, we settled down in his hometown, which is an hour and a half away from my hometown. My girlfriends, my gay friends, my aunt, my mom and my cousins, who were my shopping buddies before, are an hour and a half drive away. I also have friends in my new hometown, but they’re just acquaintances, and no one seemed to fit as a shopping buddy for me. So, I had no choice but my husband, and guess what? He’s a perfect shopping buddy!
He’s honest and frank and tells me if the dress I choose doesn’t look good on me. He’s also good in choosing something for me. When I went shopping with him last weekend, he was like, “Honey, these skinny jeans will look good on you, you wanna try them?”
At first, my husband felt awkward accompanying me to shop, but after some time he got used to it. The first time he accompanied me in buying lingerie, he was too shy to even choose something for me. But now, he’s the one who tells me which is best for me…after all, he knows my body better than my girlfriends do. My husband is my critic, my financier (of course), my best friend and my shopping buddy.
I now know that nobody can be a more perfect shopping buddy than he. Shopping with him is so much fun, and I thought only my friends could do that.
So, to other wives out there, try shopping with your husbands. Who knows, maybe you can be each other’s shopping buddies! Believe me.
