You know, given how these days we tend to live in such high maintenance, high standard ways with every other person having a black berry or new shoes or every video game. 
 
I figured I'd make a topic and see what kind of feedback it gets. 
 
This is for both Men and Women, so no bias of the genders. Make a list of both, if you want which you think is worse but keep it civil.  
 
 
Here's my list on what both genders these days waste or spend too much of  their money on IMO too much: 
  
Men
 -Video Games 
-Sports magazines 
-Porn  
-Beer
-women(what I  mean here are the player types who try to get women by throwing money at them, buying a new girl a drink every week or every day) 
-Technology 
-Sports channels   
-Junk Food 
-Supplements  
-online dating?

 
Women:  
-Purses 
-Clothes 
-Shoes 
-Drinks 
-Black Berries/texting
-Junk Food 
-Candy 
-Perfume 
-Fake Tans 
-Getting their nails done 
-Make up 
-Online Dating?

Hahaha, who still pays for porn?

Also, is that based on any study or just a random generalization?

lol you'd be surprised, I know some guys that DO pay for certain sites, memberships etc  
 
lol, Texas, just asking everyone to post their opinions. I'm sure statistically speaking both men and women spend too much money on certain things that should be obvious. 
 
But here I'm asking you to post what you think based on your own observation

Yeah there is KS, they're called sex addicts lol(not joking either lol) they will spend money, do whatever it takes to get their "crave" fix like a druggy. If free stuff isn't good enough. You do have to admit, stuff you pay for is often better then free stuff. Sometimes.
 
But I'm sure MOST men and women too go to free sites for porn, no doubt.

most Sex Addicts go after Hoes though... not just Porn they pay for...
#16 Posted by MKF30 (11635 posts) - - Show Bio

That's their first source, lol but if they can't get any they will buy porn too if they don't have the internet. There's been a few documentaries and people(sex addicts) that waste thousands on sex/porn, whatever)  I can't remember the show but there was this case where a guy was so addicted to sex, that when he wasn't cheating on his wife when she wasn't home he'd buy porn after his internet was disconnected, hound her etc lol 
 
This is another documentary with sex, porn addicts etc in general.

i do not know it is in any order, but I believe makeup would be way higher on the list above fake tan and perfume.

Perhaps where you live, lol where I live trust me it's the other way around. Most girls here care way more about tanning salons, fake nails(besides the make up) it's just very shallow atmosphere where I live sadly lol

 I also live in a very shallow place, I just always think of makeup as being more essential than fake tan XD Well I do not use fake tan it makes you orange, and in my opinion ugly. Makeup on the other hand is a positive. If women really think fake tan can cover up more ugly than makeup (I do not doubt that they do believe this) they are very wrong XD

lol I guess it depends, I've seen girls in my area wear less make up but have their face all orange like lol...it's kind of funny. Cause think about it, if a chick has zits or something they probably figure better to cover it up with darker skin/fake tan then little blush lol.

Kingsaturn,I agree lol, but there are rare cases of it happening... I mean the hardcore, druggy type sex addicts lol. That can't live without everything concerning sex. 
 
 
It's nuts lol, when I first read up about it I thought people were exaggerating...

Yeah, I'm honestly surprised more men aren't sex addicts haha but I've discovered women are just as capable of the same.  
 
Most people aren't that addicted to it. You'll find more drinkers, druggies statistically speaking lol.

Not entirely true... Here's my rundown. 
 
Single men that want to stay single: Anything with PS3, Xbox 360 or a Wii logo in the box
Single Men that want to get married: Things that impress single women
Married Men: Things that impress single women, things that pisses off their wife
Divorced Men: Things that impress single women 
 
Single Women that want to stay single: Anything for the feminist cause
Single Women that want to get married: Things that tease men (both married and single)
Married Women: Expensive things to piss off their husbands that try to impress single women
Divorced Women: Anything for the feminist cause
 
Nyehehehehe! Joke guys.. Peace ya'll!

I actually laughed when I read this.. I'm nothing like your little list. 
I buy coffee once a week (which is counted as drinks, though I am pretty sure you meant alcohol), and a bag of candy or chips every once in a while.    
I have 1 purse, 3 pairs of shoes, I barely shop for new clothes or makeup (only when I really have to), Perfume is usually a gift (if I do buy it, there is no way I'll pay full price). 
I have a 4 year old RAZR not a blackberry and use PayAsYouGo so I almost never text. 
I have never fake baked, had my nails done at a salon or used online dating.   


How did you come up with this list anyways? Just curious.

lol yeah I'm referring to women mainly so in my area lol, everywhere else I hear women are different.  
 
@coralsiren, well going by what I see what can I tell ya lol. If you lived in NYC like I do you'd agree.
#36 Posted by Evpraksiya (260 posts) - - Show Bio

yeah you should make a list referring to a specific kind of man or woman, cause everyone is pretty different. Plus i see you thread is asking us about what we're wasting our money for and not asking us to make a point about yours , so at first my money goes into clothes, (including shoes blabla),art stuff, video games, comics (and books about them), technology.  
About your list, fake tan, fake nails, fake hair, fake face ? delivered with fake brains . Blackberry's? -_-. Junk food/candy..we're kinda grown up now , drinks? for chicks needing to be fckd up to feel interesting. Online dating..is this a joke? 
 
The women in your area are pretty interesting for sure. Too bad we've got them here too....

I guess, I'm sure some of the things on my list are universal(such as shoes for women and perhaps gaming for men) something both genders love very much I've noticed

@MKF30:  Most of us nerdy gals here are probably all getting a good chuckle out of that stereotypical list for women.
 
Personally I spend most of my money on games.  If I don't get at least two new games a month I start suffering some serious withdrawal.  I normally find myself spending whatever's left on comics, toys and clothes...usually band tees.  ^^
