Losing your hoodies to your partners is just a fact of relationship life. It's almost a rite of passage, let's be real. This is particularly true for anyone dating a woman. Speaking for womankind, we have no idea why we love hoodies and sweaters so much. We just do. We know it's weird, we know that hoodie doesn't really belong to us - but it belongs with us, ya know? Things between us and hoodies is just something too deep to explain.


One poor soul asked Reddit:

Dear Men, How do you protect your sweaters and hoodies from being abducted by the women in your life?


Yeah, the responses pretty much devolved into a support and remembrance group for the millions of hoodies lost each year to wives and girlfriends. RIP hoodie homies. You were loved. Here are some of the more popular responses. And women of the world, if you've adopted a hoodie from an ex please make sure to give it a loving forever home. Hoodies deserve it.

The Only Defenses 

The only defense is being single.

Opposite solution. Lean in. Marry them (or at least cohabitate) then you'll always know where they put their clothes.

It is a war we lost long ago, son.

Be careful, or they'll come for those precious fries of yours, next.

The One I Gave You

I give them one. When I get involved with a girl and she starts homing in on my outerwear, I select one I won't miss and offer it to her. That way I can always be like, "Where's the one I gave you?" whenever she asks if she can have one.

Partial Ownership

You can't....part of me thinks I got married just to gain partial ownership of my sweaters back.

Saturation

Saturation.

I have about 20 hoodies. My wife only knows about 15 of them. (I also have some shop hoodies that she won't wear which I don't count). I keep them in the truck, in the garage, at work, at a buddies place, and everywhere in between. Yes I have duplicates. And for gifts I always ask for hoodies. Got about five for Christmas. I also buy my wife hoodies in my size. I loose a lot of hoodies. I just consider them an expendable at this point. The trick is to have so my hoodies that she can't keep track and that way I normally have a hoodie to wear. It's super expensive but it keeps the relationship happy. Oh and as soon as she develops a favorite hoodie I steal that shit and wear it daily just to keep the rotation going.

Your Favorite

The trick is to give her you favorite one and you tell her it's your favorite. Girls always remember stuff like that. She will never lose it. Always take care of it. Plus she will want it to smell like you so she will want you to wear it sometimes. That way you only lose one sweater, and you gain her heart in return.

Stranger Danger

I teach all my sweaters and hoodies about stranger danger

Gay Gains

Well if you're gay and the guy you're seeing is roughly the same size as you, you actually gain access to more sweaters and hoodies.

Forced At Sweater-point

You don't they look adorable in them and somehow even sexier. (Send help, this message was forced at sweater-point)

AP Biology

Work at a tech company. I gain new hoodies at a faster rate than I lose them. Not sure how a girl manages to continually consume what is ostensibly an infinite supply of hoodies, but my knowledge from AP Biology tells me fungi and other decomposers use them to create the building blocks for new hoodies.

Y'all know that one Hannah Montana song? “Everybody makes mistakes! Everybody has those days!" That's the song I sing to myself every time I accidentally burn myself while making ramen. It comforts me to know, however, that there are a lot of worse mistakes out there than some spilled ramen. Who knew?

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
