A woman wants to know if she was wrong for hiding her 24-year-old boyfriend’s favorite blanket, or is it time for her boyfriend to act his age? Here’s what she had to say.

Their Relationship Started out Great

She started dating this guy around eight months ago. Things have been going great. So around a month ago, they decided to get a place together.

Again, things went really well. She felt like she’d made the right choice and found the right guy. But then she noticed something a little weird about her dream man, and it’s been bugging her ever since.

He Had a Security Blanket

The guy is very attached to a blanket given to him by his dad when he was a child. Although she noticed he was close to his blanket while they were still dating, she realized his attachment to it was much stronger than she could ever have imagined when they moved in together.

He Was Really Into It

You could say the guy is obsessed with the blanket. It became like a third person in their relationship.

It Was Always There

“He takes his blanket everywhere,” the woman said. “When we cuddle on the couch or bed, in the kitchen, sometimes in the car when we go on road trips – it’s there. There are times when he would cuddle with his blanket over me!”

The Woman Felt He Preferred the Blanket to Her

She suspects that he loves the blanket more than her. It sounds strange, but check this out: “After he gets off work and comes home, he will go straight to the blanket.” By most people’s standards, this is a bit bizarre.

The woman has tried talking to her boyfriend, but he isn’t listening. He says she’s taking his relationship with the blanket too personally, and it shouldn’t be an issue between them. But it is.

She Did an Experiment

And she recently put her theory to the test. She wanted a definite answer: is it me or the blanket? She hid the blanket in the back of a closet while her boyfriend was at work.

He Immediately Saw It Was Gone

“He came home and noticed his blanket was missing,” the woman said. “He asked me what happened to it; I said I’m not sure. He ignored me and frantically tried looking for it everywhere. I told him it’s not a big issue; it’s just a blanket.”

The boyfriend became suspicious. He asked what was really going on, and the woman confessed. “I gave up and told him that it’s in the closet, and I put it there to see if he would notice the blanket before me.”

They Got Into an Argument

The guy was angry, and the woman was hurt. A huge fight kicked off. He told the woman he didn’t trust her anymore and wanted her out of the apartment.

She Wondered if It Was Something More than Just a Blanket

Now she’s staying at her sister’s house. Her sister’s husband said she was a jerk and stupid for getting so angry over a blanket. But she thinks the blanket attachment is a sign of a deeper issue.

She Asked For Advice

The final verdict was split right down the middle.

“I cannot believe this! You are definitely the jerk,” posted one person. “Are you seriously jealous of a blanket? What is wrong with you?”

“No, she gives him comfort and love,” reads another comment. “Why does he need an object like that? He needs to grow up, act like a man, and value his lady more.”
