The emanzipation of men - or: How to get your boyfriend to go shopping with you

Dear Ladies, if you'd like your husband / boyfriend to go shopping with you, get your shop to be at least a bit friendly to him.

There is nothing wrong, if you need two hours to buy a new blouse. (Actually, I heard some men need some time for shopping, too, so that doesn't even count as "typical feemale".)

There is nothing wrong, when your man has nothing to do... beside trying to find your clothes in an other size... or trying to figure out, if that color is apricot or peach, and if it would look good to something of the color pumpkin.

What makes such trips horrible is that boutiques are often overheated (Well, that might be a must; they must not be too cold for a women to take her clothes of), narrow (How many clothes stands can you squeeze into a 10m2 shop?) and loud.

If you want us to go shopping with you, go to a boutique, where a men can at least have a seat. Possibly with a water cooler nearby. That would make it a lot easier for us.

A positive example is Eierund. They have some kind of "men and children area". Children will find comics and can watch movies, and men can read car and computer magazines (or steal the comics from the children). They even have sweet apples and a really comfortable couch. That's how you make your man enjoy going shopping with you!

PS: Having a nice girlfriend, who doesn't take that long shopping helps a lot, too.
