My Shopping Obsession

I have a sickness that comes and goes. Every now and then, I get absolutely crazy over something and intend to buy everything related to it. Based on Isabel's Shopaholic Theory (Lee, 2014) there are 5 stages of Shopping Obsession.

Stage 1 : The Love at First Sight

My heart skipped a beat when I saw her. The glow around her from the lamp above, the fact that she makes all her peers seem dull and faded away, her vibrant character colour..

As the other pursuer steps away, she is finally left alone and I approached her slowly but firmly. I realize she is more beautiful up close.

I wrapped my arms around her and brought her away from the others to get to know her better. My heart raced as I heard the zipper being undone; curious as to what is underneath. This is the one.. Definitely.

Stage 2 : Second Date.. and Third

Others after her bored me but I didn't want to be too hasty. So I went back again and again. Each visit reassured me of my choice.

Stage 3 : Continue Online

Went back to stalk her online, checking her out from different angles. Then I found out she has amazing friends/sisters/cousins! Fell in love with 10 others and add all of them to my cart/wishlist so I can stare at them again later. Canceled each one as I convinced myself they're flawed and not as perfect.

Stage 4 : The Marriage

She was finally mine. She was constantly by my side, clinging on my arm. I brought her everywhere I went; to dinner, to the movies, to work.. I was proud and showed her off to everyone I knew.

Stage 5 : The Divorce

It was lovely while it lasted but.. things have changed. I found myself a NEW obsession! 

*process repeats itself*

Now now.. this has happened more often than I would admit =( Please tell me I'm not the only one?
