A Turn On or a Turn Off?

Russell Crowe was quoted in the current issue of Men's Journal saying, "I love going shopping, I have a black belt in it. My wife [Danielle] really appreciates that in me."

While he doesn't look like a metrosexual per se, it sure does sound like he likes to shop like one! So ladies, tell me: Do you think it's a turn on or a turn off for a man to be a full fledged shopper?

If its as a "buddy-shopper" then a total TURN ON. If he goes to the mall say in the middle of something just because "there's a HUGE sale" then TURN OFF. :?

This question is like asking whether it's a turn on or turn off that a guy wears socks.

Turn on! My boyfriend is my best friend and my best shopping buddy, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I love the fact my b/f goes shopping with me but its not his favorite thing to do but at least he does it for me :-)

My boyfriend likes to shop with me - actually he just likes to spend money, period. I am not saying he is standing right next to me helping me pick out what shade of pink I should wear, but we go to the mall together and he wanders to the sections he likes and we meet back up. If I have a question on something I will ask him.

my bf definitely likes to shop with me, because we have a good understanding of things. he'll go in girly stores with me, and i'll go in video game stores with him. we both like bookstores and shoestores, and wandering aimlessly through other funny stores in the mall a la hot topic.

I like to shop, and so does the hubby. He shops for himself and the fam, and he's got great fashion sense. He's always buying me clothes, so I would have to say TURN ON. However, I personally prefer to shop by myself. Because as someone else said above, he doesn't lolligag like I do.

OK have an issue with the metros, I dont mind my man shopping for himself and keeping himself looking good and so on. HOWEVER I do have a problem if he shops just as much or even more than I do, gets a mani and pedi, wax/threads his eye brows, binki wax, and gets his hair done every week. - thats just not kool in my book, no kool at all.

I think it would be SO bad if I was dating a shopoholic like me! I would spend so much more money, and that's dangereous!!! My man is a pretty good shopper, a fast shopper, he knows what he is looking for and doens't beat around the bush like I do... He comes with me and is really good about not complaining, if it's over an hour, though, I should bring a friend instead.

I don't think it's a turn on or a turn off. If my boyfriend doesn't mind shopping with me, great but I think it's more because he has high tolerance for just about anything and would never rush me. Same goes for him when he wants to go to places I normally would not go and spend time at shopping around. I just find it considerate if he's willing to go along with me, not so much a turn on.

i like to shop by myself (which isn't very often) and there are very few times i want my bf to join me but he's pretty good about putting up with it. so yeah, a guy that shops too much is def a turn-off.

I think he has to be somewhat into it because otherwise he'd probably get annoyed with me.

I can't say a man enjoying shopping particularly does a thing for me.

He loves to hit Circuit City, Home Dept and Comp USA. He's also great about shopping with me for clothing, etc. and finding me things to try on that I wouldn't normally look at but always end up looking good n. But I agree with lickety; if he got into accessories for himself, I think I'd have some issues! :)

well he doesn't say what he's shopping for does he? is it gadgets? home decor, yard stuff? my dh likes all that type of shopping and i'm glad about that. to much into clothes would be weird. if my dh started getting into accessories all of a sudden i'd wonder, lol.

Turn-on if he's a good shopper; turn-off if he buys ugly items.

There's nothing sexier(physically) than a man who dresses well AND smells good. SERIOUSLY. It makes me weak in the knees, especially the part about them smelling good. :p

turn ON. knowing what looks good on you and what fits and why is important. guys want to feel good about the way they look as much as girls do, right? and there's nothing hotter than a man in a cashmere sweater that he picked out himself...

i like how my boyfriend doesn't like to shop. because when he does shop with me it's because he wants to do something for me so he treats me real nice and gives me back rubs while i shop. all he requires is that we go into gamestop

My husband likes to shop online...that's his thing. Which I don't mind. However, around xmas-time, he starts getting these outrageous ideas in his head that cost a gazillion dollars, and I have to slap him around a bit to bring him down to reality. :P So he could do some damage to our bank account if I let him. :rotfl:
