My name is Sarah and I am 36 years old working single mom. My son is 16 years old, he is doing well in school and overall he is a good boy. Most of his time he plays on his computer and that's about it.
Last week, I felt sick and I couldn't sleep so I stayed awake in bed trying to sleep for couple of hours.
While lying in my bed, I heard someone slowly sneaking into my room, I immediately froze in fear, I thought it was a burglar but I was shocked when I realized it was my son making his way to my wardrobe, picking up a pair of boots and leaving.
I stayed awake in my bed confused, after an hour, he returned slowly sneaking and made his way to wardrobe again, he put my boots back in place and left my room.
I wanted to investigate what's going on without letting him know that I saw him, so I stay awake for a while during the nights and indeed sometimes he does sneak into my room take a pair of boots etc...
So far it seems that he used all my pair of boots for some purpose and returned them after an 1-2 hours.
My son never had a girlfriend so first I thought maybe he is gay and tries the boots on but there is no way for that since his feet is much larger than mine, there is no way he could put these boots on.
Please help me,
Why is he sneaking into my room in the middle of the night in order to get my boots? What possibly he can do with it?
Should I confront him?

Yes, How do I bring this up?
How can I make him open up about this particular topic?
This is the first time he is hiding something from me.
When he mess up something he doesn't lie about it, he always talks to me straight forward.
Should I buy him women's boots so he will know I OK with whatever he does?

Locking up the door won't solve the real problem, he will know that I saw him and will find another way. I rather confront him before shutting him out.
I am not scared of him, I am worried about him and I want to help him.
