Shopping Online – Even Guys Can Shop Now
In my experience and through what I gather through the media, family and friends, shopping has been the domain of the female gender.
Guys had always endured shopping either through necessity or to please their partner. The thought of having to go somewhere, possibly well out of your way, and putting up with crowds of people to find that elusive item you saw advertised, then if you are lucky enough to find it, having to wait in a line to get out of the particular store never excited me and I’m sure was a turn off for most guys.
I have always played with a computer since my first commodore 64 back in the 80’s. I loved to leave all that real world stuff outside and lose myself on it.
Then came the internet explosion. And gradually it’s changed all that so now I can still enjoy spending time on my computer, BUT, the real world now comes to me WITHOUT having to go outside.
In relation to shopping, that’s been a godsend for guys. We no longer need to take that daunting and dreaded trip to the store for specific items. No more getting lost wandering around trying to find things while fighting through big crowds. No more standing in queues to get out if we find what we are looking for.
Yep, now we can do a search for something online and when we find it, we can also find a site where we can even buy it and get it delivered. No crowds, no wandering around, no queues. How good is that?
I’ve enjoyed this revolution so much, I’ve even decided to help the transformation for others. My site includes links devoted to this “search, find, click, buy” kind of shopping. Now your closest shopping center is only a click away.
Of course, with this new method of shopping, comes new methods of operation. The major area to consider is security.
You are not dealing face to face so before you invest in purchases online, consider a) the vendor/store and b) the method of payment.
The great thing about shopping on the net, is that because the net is foremost an information highway, you can check on anything and everything you visit. Simple searches of an online store name or site will provide a treasure chest of information regarding that store/site. Be it feedback, warnings, ratings, overviews etc. If you are about to deal with something or someone “shady” you can be forewarned.
And this is important also as you are not only parting with money, you are also parting with personal details, credit card details, addresses,… valuable information in the wrong hands.
So, provided you take these precautions, shopping is now everyone’s domain.
There you go. Shopping is no longer a chore. Even us guys can now enjoy it.
