Refused to walk with my GF coz of what she was wearing! Am I wrong? Watch

    If your GF wears socks and slippers, would you refuse to walk outside with her?


    I did. She went to the local shop on her own wearing socks and slippers, after I told her I'm not going if she's wearing that. It's not illegal to wear that, but it's just not socially acceptable - It's almost like wearing a bra outside a top!


    After she went, I just felt like a horrible person. I know she doesn't have to wear what I like, but this wasn't anything like that. I wasn't saying "wear this dress and don't wear the other, coz I don't like it". It was a case of what's socially acceptable and what's (let's face it) practical (coz it was also very hot and sunny!)


    Now I don't know how to make her understand and realise that I wasn't being a horrible person there and wasn't controlling what she should wear and what she shouldn't.


    What should I do?

      Do the same in reverse while you're wearing socks and crocs. She'll see your point of view immediately.

      I would have just carried her while she was in her socks.

      What should I do?
      Some relationships have issues with a partner being unfaithful. Some have cultural and religious issues which pressure individuals to act one way or another, thereby harming the relationship in the process. Some have ailments of a mental nature, disallowing a healthy relationship to form no matter how much they wish it to be.

      You, sir, have socks and sandals.

      Grow up.

      It's only like wearing flip flops when you're not on holiday. You look like a bit of a peasant, but nobody really cares.

      Get a grip. Anyone who saw her and judged her for it:
      - Was very bored
      - Will never see her again
      - Would probably care even less about her boyfriend

      Lol at OP. Is he really being serious.

      Reminds me of a day I remember wearing pyjama bottoms to primary school, only found out midway during the day as well ffs.

      How can nobody tell me that I'm wearing pyjama bottoms before I go to school.

      Anyway nobody cared then.
