Men do compulsive buying too

I have long believed that only women experience compulsive buying disorder, a condition marked by compulsive buying and subsequent financial and relationship ruins. It turn out that men have the same problem, according to a survey done by Stanford University School of Medicine. The researchers found that 6% of women and 5.5% of men in US had symptoms consistent with compulsive buying disorder.
Well, we are all human; men and women just buy different things.

Hello, I was just going to random sites and found yours. This post called out to me. I had a bad problem with compulsive buying for a while. I've been working hard at controlling it.

When I see a 55 Gallon drum of sheet rock screws on sale, I simply must have it.

Yeah, we're compulsive buyers too.

However, our compulsive purchases tend to break the bank in one fell swoop. Women's tend to bleed it dry by a thousand tiny cuts.

Besides, we really did need that new truck/boat/camper/beach house.

Hi, i was lookin around sites (as u do), lol, im 16, male an from the UK.
Anyway i would like to just put a comment sayin, yes i think i have a compulsive buying habbit because even though it is past midnight i have bought 4 items of a site that i felt i HAD 2 have these cost £150 for all, i have tried to stop and i did for a while but after a few months (actually weeks), i felt horrible an i needed to buy something an b4 i knew it i was spendin agen, im not in debt like a few other people. i took a quiz that was on a professional site and found out that my attitude toward buying was compulsive, mostly because i always want to buy things wen i feel low or had an argument.
i think i can't stop buying because i have made it a major part of my life, and most of my spare time i have is looking around at what clothes or accessories to get for next week. People at home have said a few words about it but even though i know there right i just cant stop.
anyways if anyone wants info or woteva my e-mail is ChrisB.89@hotmail.com
