AITA for expecting my boyfriend to replace all my socks, the exact same ones as I had before?

This might seem silly. I (24F) like wearing cheerful socks, since my uniform is all white (currently working as an phlebotomist), it usually cheers up the patients too.

I've spent a few years collecting strange socks, ones with sushi, pizza, corgis, cats, Nick Cage, etc. I think I had about 30 pairs. My boyfriend (29M) has always hated them, and thinks they're childish. So I agreed to only wear them to work, and never on dates or around his friends/family. I thought that was fair.

On boxing day his parents came over for coffee and gifts (just the 4 of us, which is allowed where I live, and keeping a solid 3 meters apart). I accidentally put on a pair of 'childish' socks, and his mother made a comment about it. I explained that I wear them to work to cheer people up, and she liked that. My boyfriend didn't.

The next day all my socks were gone, and the drawer was filled with plain black socks. I asked my boyfriend, and he told me he threw them away and purchased some more 'appropriate' socks, so I won't embarrass him in front of his parents again.

I told him that that's insane, they were mine and he had no right to throw them away. Not to mention that I spend quite some time collecting them.

So I made a list of the ones I remembered I had, and told him that I expect the same ones as a replacement. He told me that's completely unreasonable, and that it would take a lot of time/effort/money for him to find those specific pairs. I haven't changed my mind yet, they cost me a lot of time and effort to find too.

I think he's being controlling, he thinks I'm being unreasonable and demanding.

AITA?

I think I might be an asshole for asking for the exact same pairs, I know that'll take a lot of effort to find.

Edit: Thanks everyone for replying, I've realised that this might not be a 'normal' fight and am evaluating the relationship.

Sock shoe sock shoe, not sock sock shoe shoe.

I put on one sock and one shoe at a time. I do not put both socks on and then both shoes on. I've had people comment before that this is weird, but it is a better way for these two reasons:

  1. You're already focused on that foot and you don't need to readjust your body. You can go directly from a raised foot into a shoe.

  2. in the winter there's often water in the floor near my shoes. Even with mats and containment snow and ice still falls into the floor of the mudroom. If I set my socked foot onto the floor then it might get wet. Then I have wet socks! The alternative allows me to dry water of the bottom of the foot and there is zero risk of wet socks.

[Sims 4] Sock Aliens fail to knock Sim players socks off

Background

What is the Sims? The Sims is a long-running video game series that started in 2000. Players take control of virtual people, called Sims, and you control every aspect of their life. You can decide who they fall in love with, their job, their house and pretty much everything you can think of. The most recent edition of the Sims, Sims 4, came out in 2014.

The series is notorious for the high cost and numerous expansions. To purchase all 19 of the Sims 3 expansions costs $400 USD. The most recent total I could find for the cost to buy all the Sims 4 expansions is $340 USD. This total only accounts for 9 expansion packs and not the most recent expansion packs, game packs, or stuff packs. The actual Sims 4 total is much higher.

What is an occult sim? Occult Sims with special powers and abilities over other sims. Witches can cast magic, Vampires can mind control other Sims, etc. Currently, with the right expansions for Sims 4, your sim could be an alien, mermaid, robot, vampire or witch.

What is a rabbit hole? A rabbit hole is a Sims term for a building/activity the Sim can do, but the game camera cannot follow them into. So when your Sim goes inside to do the action, the player sees nothing and waits for them to be done.

What is Batuu? In Star Wars canon, Batuu is a remote terrestrial planet on the edge of the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories, in the Batuu system of the Trilon sector. Batuu is notably the basis for the theme park land Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland. At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, you can make your own lightsaber, fly the Millennium Falcon ride, and build your own customized droid.

The Drama

The latest Sims 4 game pack logo was teased and players were lit with speculation. Could it be the long-awaited winter vacation pack? Some guessed it was alien/ sci-fi themed, but they figured it would be based on the in-universe aliens and planet introduced in Sims 4: Get to Work. Much to everyone’s surprise, both guesses were wrong. The logo turned out to be the Sims 4: Journey to Batuu, a game pack in collaboration with Disney based on the real-life Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

The initial backlash was intense. Players didn’t want to pay for something that seemed like a glorified theme park advertisement. Previou

Skirts and dresses in winter - how to look good and be warm with a combo of boots, socks, tights?

How do you manage your skirts and dresses in the winter? Personally, I recently moved to a very warm climate but it can still get into the 40's Fahrenheit (that's single digits in celsius) in the mornings.

But I'm pretty clueless on how to style boots, especially ankle boots, with skirts and dresses. Plus I really, really hate wearing tights - that compression around my torso is unbearable and basically why I also gave up pants in favor of dresses!

Some questions/thoughts:

  1. Is there a certain type of ankle boot that looks better with skirts/dresses than others? Such as super short shaft or mid-calf or somewhere in-between?
  2. I see advice all the time that says "black tights go with everything!" But IMO they really don't. What about light or medium brown ankle boots and a pale dress? Black tights would be a stark and weird contrast I think.
  3. Also super stylish on models is the bare leg, ankle boot look. But can the average person easily pull that off or are there other considerations?
  4. Since I hate tights, but love warm legs, anyone have a source for thigh-high or OTK socks that stay up fairly well? I don't need to be able to run a marathon in them but not having to constantly adjust them would be nice.
  5. How about heeled boots? Are they a must with dresses/skirts or are flatter, more casual boots an ok contrast?

I would love to hear your thoughts!

EDIT Thanks so much, all! You've given me some seriously great ideas. I really appreciate you :)
