Thread: Guys more thrifty or spendthrift than ladies?

    Default Guys more thrifty or spendthrift than ladies?

    talking point...

    Ladies that I know tend to spend on small things, while guys that I know tend to spend on bigger ticket items.

    Guys may scrounge on shirts and meals, but end up spending that on a new PC/Hifi component or DSLR.

    It all works out to be the same actually.

    hey I am single, spending as will but do have some concerns in supporting my parents. Hate to say that: financially wish never picked up photography, maybe should go for something else in the future like drawing and reading.

    We can all spend at will regardless of whether we are single or not....... (maybe not for married men) but whether it's wise to do so is another story......

    Well girls can buy many things frequently and can still spend a lot on a stone and metal.

    Guys tend to spend only when the TV, computer, camera is needed

    Just happen to receive the following today thru email...so thought it's an interesting perspective relevant to this topic.



    think it depends on individuals...cannot one bamboo stick beat down one boat of pple.

    if i m a gal who happens to also spend on cameras, that makes me ultra spendthrift?

    It makes u lagi lagi jialat.....i.e high upkeep.

    Maybe Nikonians.org might come out with a diamond studded special edition camera strap for your kind.

    Well....I will not need too much justification on the need to buy expensive high-end equipment.

    I broke already. Some more diamond is stone (carbon?) only.

    Remember, the diamond isotope of carbon is less stable than graphite. So after many many years, that diamond of yours will become a lump of black carbon.
