To start with, thanks for checking this out.
And now that the formalities are out of the way (lol), I’ll get into it.
The other day my partner and I were out clothes shopping. We shop for clothes together a fair bit and enjoy it (most of the time lol).The other day was weird though, for some reason I felt a bit awkward about the whole thing.
The awkwardness definitely wasn’t because of her though!
I love seeing her try on new outfits and all that jazz. It just felt odd being the only bloke there who was clothes shopping with his other half. I don’t normally care in that regard, in fact I love being ‘that guy’!
Of course there were a few other couples shopping too, but they were pretty much there for about 2 minutes. ‘Come on hurry up, I wanna get out of here’ kind of blokes. (You know the ones)
There was though, one shop where I was the only guy in there… literally.
Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t freaking out in a cold sweat, I just felt a bit awkward. Haha, no doubt we’ve all felt like that before right…
I’ve gotta say that most of the time, the staff are awesome at the places we shop. We always seem to end up having a chat and a laugh with them. Two days ago though, it was quite the opposite situation lol.
At the first shop we went to, she picked out a few dresses and I picked out a sexy little skirt for her to try on.
So we’ve got to the change rooms and my partner walks in and starts doing her thing. I smile at the change room lady and am about to say G’day.
As it turns out, she wasn’t the talkative type... This lady just gives me the thousand yard stare.
I thought, righto best not to say G’day and decided to leave it at a smile.
I swear I was getting looked up and down for the whole 15 or so minutes lol.
I’m exaggerating a bit there (obviously), but for some reason she just wouldn’t stop staring me down that day. Maybe she fancied my partner, maybe she’d had a bad day or maybe she generally just thought I was weird looking… Ha, who knows?
Anyway after getting a mean ass stare down and my partner not liking any of the clothes, we decided to check out another store. The chick in there is pretty cool and we get along pretty well. Plus they have some pretty hot clothes there too.
So once again my partner’s trying on these clothes and getting my opinions and everything’s sweet.
Then, a few older ladies come in and just keep looking at me, with this gobsmacked look on their face .
As if to say, “are you meant to be in here buddy” lol.
I know obviously they deserve privacy, I get that. It’s a pretty ‘hip’ store though so you’d expect a chick to take there fella in with them I think… I mean I wasn’t eying off what they were choosing out.
All in all though, it was a nice, fun, sunny ol’ day!
So after my long rant (that probably sounds whiney and jumbled anyway)
I’ve got to ask…
Ladies & Gentleman- Do you enjoy taking your partner, lover, manfriend/ladyfriend along with you when you shop for/try on new clothes?
Have any of you got a similar story (as exaggerated as it might seem) to mine?
Thanks for reading through!
Also if you managed to make sense of it all and realised it was meant with a bit of humour...
