AITA for breaking up with my girlfriend over my video games.

so I have a decent video collection, I will not post pictures as I do not want this post linked to my actual account.

my girlfriend of 2 years 25f and me 24f decided we wanted to move in together, she kinda mentioned getting rid of my collection but I thought she was joking so I brushed it off. turns out she wanted me to get rid of my whole video game collection, some of my games are worth some money and I've been keeping them so they can become more expensive. my collection is also 3 years of me thrift shopping and I do not want to throw that away, I tried to explain it but she refused and told me that I did not love her enough to make this sacrifice.

about 2/3 days ago she called me and said it's me or the fucking video games. I chose the games and she hung up on me.

everyone that I've spoken to (excluding a few people) have been telling me I fucked up, and that I should of picked her over some games.

Stop going too far about the girlfriend, stop fighting over what counts as a valid hobby at OP's age.

NTA, ultimatums are stupid and unfair and if she's willing to make this big of a deal over a videogame collection (which you presumably purchased with your own money) it doesn't bode well for the future.

Exactly. OP would be better off finding someone that isn't trying to be so controlling, and maybe even someone that shares his her interests.

*her interests. OP is female.

Wow, how did they go two years without having already moved in together?

Something, something, lesbians and u-hauls.

Yeah, OP has beaten the (surprisingly true) stereotype.

I was surprised to learn how fast lesbian couples move. I kinda get it, since it's hard to meet women as a woman (at least it is for me, and I've been told I'm lovely and beautiful). My first time seeing it was when a lesbian couple at my work got hitched within a couple months of dating.

My mate (who's a lesbian) has a favourite joke:

What do lesbians bring on a second date?

I always heard U-Haul but same same

level 10

My wife literally picked me up for our second date in a U-haul because she happened to be moving at that time and we don’t have cars lol. We waited six months to move in, got engaged after a year, we are currently blissfully married :)

The stereotype might partly be from how it’s harder to meet other girls but mostly I think it’s the idea that girls are, well, both girls who are on the same page about wanting to move in together and be domestic and cozy. What can I say, we did it.

Do you need a U-haul when you already own a Subaru?

level 7

You get one of the U-haul trailers in this case.

I think 2 years is a decent grace period to get a feel if you could tolerate the next step of moving in
