LOOK: Woman exposes ex-BF for enforcing strict rules, then cheating on her

A woman blasted her ex-boyfriend for imposing strict rules whenever she goes out, then having the “audacity to cheat” on her.

Zoe Scholefield of West Yorkshire, England, exposed her ex-boyfriend who drew a long list of rules of what she should do during a night out, as he was cheating on her, The Sun reported yesterday, Aug. 12. Scholefield did not state how she discovered his infidelity.

The rules, sent through a text message, were shared on Scholefield’s Twitter account last Friday, Aug. 9. Scholefield’s message contained 12 rules, where her ex-boyfriend said she cannot “get too drunk.” Scholefield’s ex-boyfriend also instructed her to “text me to tell me things so I can see in the morning” even when he is asleep.

“Funny how my ex sent me stuff like this then has the audacity to cheat on me,” Scholefield said. 

Other Twitter users reacted to Scholefield’s post, giving their two cents on the matter.

One commenter, @Pinky4367, noted that Scholefield’s ex-boyfriend is paranoid because he tried to control her from “do[ing] what he did” to her.

One @AshleyNivens said that “control isn’t affection or love.”


Some commenters were able to see the abusiveness of the ex-boyfriend. A netizen, @hollyhaless, stated that the “short-term and long-lasting” effects of emotional and verbal abuse are similar to the effects of physical abuse. She also cited types of emotional and verbal abuse, such as insulting and attempting to control someone.

Another commenter, @kristen_maria, blasted Scholefield’s ex-boyfriend for being “incredibly rude and disrespectful.”

Scholefield’s post has gone viral, garnering over 30,000 likes and more than 3,000 retweets, as of this writing. JB
