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.

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.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
