OPP: She Wears Her Ex's Clothes
Today's OPP came from Austin:
Yi Slacker and Steve,
My girlfriend and I had a big fight over the weekend because she was wearing a Jets jersey that used to belong to her ex. She has also worn other clothes (a gym t-shirt and a sweatshirt) that used to belong to him. I think it's disrespectful and asked her to get rid of the clothes she has from him. She says they are just clothes and I'm being a jealous baby. We’ve been together for 2 years, am I wrong for asking her to toss the clothes? Who's right - me or her?
What do you think? Is Austin overreacting?
Personally, I'm going to have to side with his girlfriend on this one. For one, I think it's great if she thinks they're just clothes because as a girl, if I kept thinking of him while wearing it, I probably would have tossed it out or gave it back a long time ago. It's been two years! If the Jets is a team she loves and the clothes are comfortable, I say by all means, keep them. It's not hurting anyone, plus now she doesn't have to spend her own money on them. Even if she thinks of him while wearing it, I don't think it would be in the way he's imagining. I keep momentous from my past and I think of a certain person, but it just reminds me of who I was and where I am today. I think he needs to be okay with or better yet, buy her some new ones!
