Signs which indicate that you are a Compulsive Shopper.BY: Deena David | Category: Shopping | Post Date: 2009-12-02
Shopping is an activity that most men do not like, at the same time, it is an activity that many women like. There are various factors for this. One of the reasons is that women like to buy new things. Men only like fancy electronic items and fancy goods. These are not available at a cheap cost. So men have to plan their shopping and have to save before they are able to purchase a lot of things. This is not true about women. Women do not mind shopping for various trinkets that may not cost a lot. They d like to ship for expensive stuff, but they also do not mind shopping for even things with lesser cost.
This brings us to the question if you are a compulsive shopper and what could be the possible traits of a compulsive shopper. A compulsive shopper is one who likes shopping and it can even become a pathological condition where the person gets emotional satisfaction from shopping. This makes the person shop for more and more goods finally exhausting all their money. Then they start feeling guilty about spending money by purchasing various things.
