Why do women tend to love shopping so much?
And why do men often find it so boring?
It’s one of the oldest stereotypes, but it’s also probably one of the most accurate: women love to shop. Well, not all of us love it, but many of us do. Men, on the other hand, don’t seem generally all that excited by the activity.
The answer as to why women tend to love to shop may trace back hundreds of thousands of years ago to early human history. Until around 8000 BCE, we all lived as hunter-gatherers. We women were the “gatherer” half of that dynamic duo. Men would go out and hunt down wild animals, while women would forage for wild fruits, vegetables, berries, nuts, and seeds.
To hold up their end of the deal, men would spot their prey and go in for the kill quickly, getting out as soon as they could so that they could carry back their catch before dark. Remind you of anything?
It’s a bit like the smash-and-grab technique most men demonstrate today in clothing stores: guys tend to know what they want, zoom in on it, and buy it quickly.
Women, on the other hand, would move from bush to bush, inspecting all of the different berries and fruits to make sure they chose the best ones to take back for their families.
